Firefox / WIN7: I type in two hyphens IE -- and word processor (LibreOffice Writer) changes them into M dash IE – which is what I would love to see happen in Firefox. Alternately, if this cannot be done, is there a simple way to do this with some sort of macro on my puter? Plus, hey, while we're here, can we turn three periods IE ... into an ellipsis IE … ? (Hewlett Packard HP 630 laptop, if it matters.) [more inside]

I hate intrusive facebook. My favorite facebook blocker is 3 versions of firefox behind and doesn't appear to be actively updated anymore. What's more, with the latest redesign, FB has a new social plugin thing on other sites that I can't figure out how to block. What's the best way to keep facebook and its assorted APIs, plugins, sniffers, trackers and malware on its own damn webpage?

I have a PC running Firefox 6 as of yesterday. When I try to go to www.chase.com I get the following message: An error occurred during a connection to www.chase.com. Peer's Certificate has been revoked. (Error code: sec_error_revoked_certificate) Googling is not helping perhaps because I am not familiar enough with certificates and how they work. Any ideas on how to use the site without turning off certificates? Is it important to keep them on?

How can I create FF sidebars that contain only the bookmarks in chosen folders? I'd like to 1. be able to choose one of my folders of bookmarks and create a custom sidebar from it that only shows the bookmarks in that chosen folder 2. have Firefox remember these custom sidebars 3. be able to choose any one of these sidebars as my "current" sidebar at any time 4. be able to create individual buttons to do #3 for each sidebar, and be able to put these buttons on my main toolbar somewhere (like the "blue book with the white star" button on my toolbar that brings up the built-in FF Bookmarks sidebar). Is there a way to do this? (a little more info inside) Thanks [more inside]
