Firefox problem

Firefox Cache: is it weird, or what?
Surely I should be able to read "C:\Documents and Settings\dad\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.pt4\Cache" in, er, Firefox. Right? [more inside]

Firefox Default Theme

How do I restart Firefox with the default theme? The theme that's being used is corrupt and it blacks out all the menus. I tried to delete the current theme, but there doesn't seem to be any obvious theme folder.

How do I block specific websites in Firefox?

Is there a firefox extension or an easy to use program that can block specific websites? While I don't normally have a problem, I've been noticing that I get on Mefi and basically don't get off. If I don't get on, that would probably solve the problem. The best and easiest way I can think of doing that, is a program. So: suggestions?

Printing multiple tabs in Firefox?

Firefox Question: Is it possible to print all open tabs within Firefox with one print command? Or alternatively, is there an extension that will allow me to create a clipboard with multiple snippets of text from various web sites, and print all those snippets at one time? [more inside]

How do I synchronize bookmarks between different Firefox installations?

How do I synchronize bookmarks between Firefox on different computers? I use Firefox on several computers and would like to synchronize the bookmarks between them. If I add a bookmark to one computer (or perhaps 50 bookmarks all over the place) I want to be able to get those new bookmarks into the other computers and in the appropriate folders. When I use the import function it imports every bookmark and folder even if already present. Deletions are not that important, I rarely delete bookmarks.

Firefox vs Safari

Can a non-Apple and non-Mozilla partisan tell me if, and the degree to which, Firefox is better than Safari?

Firefox bookmarks

FirefoxFilter: Is there any extension or option (even if it requires hand editing) that would allow me to have Bookmarks open in a new tab by default (instead of rightclicking and selecting this from the context menu)? I'm really surprised none of the tab extensions include this option.

Firefox features seem to be locked

Firefox Filter: HELP! I downloaded the new non-preview FF, and now some of the option boxes seem to be locked, AND when I try to scroll down on a page using the mouse wheel, the font size changes instead. How do I change these features? Or, are they bugs?

Efficient Browser Page Loading

I am a frequent reader of Chowhound's message boards but the several-megabytes-long message index pages are a huge pain in the ass. I usually let the whole index load and then open threads into new windows/tabs, but that's not an entirely convenient situation. Does anyone know of a Firefox extension or other work-around that will let me load some specified fraction of a specific page whenever I go to it? Then I could always load only, say, the first (and newest) 100K worth of messages on Chowhound.

WebDesign: CSS and FireFox

So I have this home page. It looks pretty good (which is to say, it looks like I intended) in Safari, and passable in Internet Explorer. But in FireFox the CSS completely dissapears for some reason, so everything just comes up in a big unstyled pile. So in trying to find out why this is, which I have not done, I came to wonder: Is there a place on the web that has information about the differnces between browsers and how they render various bits of HTML, CSS and so on?

Who's eating my Firefox cookies?

Firefox question: Why do my cookies for sites such as the Washington Post or New York Times keep disappearing? I can not say for sure, but it seems time related - if I do not visit the site in a few weeks all of a sudden it is asking for my login info. Is there some way to prevent this?

Saving downloaded JPGs in Firefox

Firefox: How do I get it to simply save jpg's already downloaded, rather than downloading them again after hitting Save? Fetching the big APOD pic twice does not make much sense, especially on a dial-up. PS: The Firefox Help is almost useless. I am beginning to have my doubts about the utility of this browser over IE.

Firefox customization

Firefox question. Unmodified, just-installed firefox opens a new tab behind the current tab, instead of on top as Mozilla does; and the right-click popup menu for tabs does not have "close this tab" first in the list, as in Mozilla. Are these two behaviors customizable? I know I'm being lazy but these two misfeatures are deal-killers for me. If you knowledgeable firefox users tell me they're fixable in userChrome.css or users.js or whatever I promise I'll rtfm-rtfm-rtfm and become as rabid a firefox zealot as you might desire. But if they're not changeable then it's all wasted effort and I'll stay with Mozilla (or whatever they're calling it this week.) Thanks!

Do I have to install Windows XP Service Pack 2 now?

Firefox Features

I am an unapologetic Firefox fanboy. This is the only piece of software for which I have feelings bordering on love. Which is why it pains me to say that new pr 0.10 is annoying me. There are lots of sites that I have multiple logins for and I miss the ability to 1, be able to place the cursor in the login field, press the down arrow, and chose the login I want. And 2, be able to type the first few letters of the login and hit tab to auto complete the login and populate the password field. Anyone figure out how to get these features back?

Firefox at Work

I really love using Firefox instead of IE as my browser, but I'm having problems with Firefox at work. About half the time I try to use it at work, it won't load anything. It tells me that the page timed out. Whenever this happens, I have to browse with IE instead until Firefox starts working again, several minutes later. I have no problems with Firefox at home. I've heard this is a firewall-related issue, but I don't really understand. Is there a way to fix this?

What are these black diamonds?

I'm on a fresh install of Firefox 0.9.3 and I'm frequently getting a line of black diamonds with white question marks inside of them when I load a page. Sometimes it just flashes and goes away and the page loads; other times, the page isn't loading at all. I've checked my settings and Googled it but can't figure out what this is. Been using Firefox for some time now and never seen this prior to this install. Any ideas?

How do I edit HTML source code with Firefox?

HTML editing: IE6 has been hijacked once too often so I've moved over to Firefox. But it's just not the same. When building websites in IE6, it was the work of a moment to bring up the html source in notepad, save it and refresh the open window to check the changes. Firefox is having none of this.

Help me choose the best web browser

Mozilla? Firefox? Camino? I'm ready to try a new browser, but I'm confused by the differences between these three. Currently using Safari 1.2.2 on an iMac and an iBook, both with 10.3.4. I have a license for Opera, but it's simply more than I need. I don't need IRC and I don't need HTML (yet?). I would like for it to sync bookmarks between the 2 Macs (I have iSync and a .mac account) and to work reasonably well with AppleMail, Address Book, etc. What's the best choice for a non-geeky girl?
