Okay, I'm stumped and my tech friend is stumped. Maybe you won't be?

Why does my computer believe that all sites aside from Google Mail and Google Talk do not exist?

Dell running Windows Vista, virus-protected and up-to-date. Firefox 3.6.13 displays GMail and GChat but loads only a blank white page for all other sites; IE gives me "this page cannot be displayed" for every site I checked, including GMail. The admin account (my primary account) is the only account affected; I can log into a guest account and see the entire internet. [more inside]

Can I block eHow pages from appearing in my Google search results?

When I run Google searches, many of the top results are from eHow. Unfortunately, in my experience these results are almost always unhelpful. Is there a way to prevent eHow pages from appearing in my search results? I use Firefox and am amenable to installing add ons.

speeding up facebook

Are there any tools for blocking out useless & slow "features" on facebook? I'm unsure the last time I actually appreciated any facebook popup. In particular, I've no need for facebook's toolbar because Adium and my N900 log into facebook's chat directly. Bonus if it'll work under MicroB on a Nokia N900. [more inside]

NoScript failed me and left: what do I do now?

How paranoid should I be about my Windows XP Pro machine after hitting a dodgy site with Firefox 3.6, scanning with Microsoft Security Essentials, updating NoScript, scanning with MSE again, and finally using Windows to restore to yesterday's restore point, about 18 hours before hitting that site? Firefox is now missing NoScript completely, but it's been installed for weeks and surely should have been here yesterday morning. Has there been a known issue with NoScript, or am I just a special (and dim) snowflake? [more inside]

Opposite of Google Translate

You know how Google Translate in Chrome will translate a page, and if you hover the mouse over something, it'll show the original? Is there something that can do the opposite: only show the English translation if you hover over the foreign text? (for Chrome or Firefox)

Still Can't Fix the Fix for the Firefox Fix

I'm encountering the same problem with Gmail and Firefox (on Mac) described in this question, but I'm too computer illiterate to understand the fixes that the "best answer" refers me to- I can't find "about:config" to make sure dom.storage.enabled is TRUE; "About Firefox" just gets me the little box with the icon and the version number. Can someone explain to me how to implement in the fix in simpler language with more basic step-by-step instructions? [more inside]

Gmail? More like NO mail!

Gmail acting funny in Firefox: I have 2 gmail tabs open. One is for my personal account, the other is through my employer (the college uses google to manage their webmail service). If I try to "Compose Mail" or "Reply" or anything that would open up a new email, on either account, the top of the page goes to "Loading" but nothing ever happens. In addition, the Gmail Chat tab is missing. Only not working on my home computer; both were working fine on my office computer when I went in to check 30 min ago. [more inside]

Why do the rollovers on the website I have made do what I want them to in Chrome but not in Firefox or Internet Explorer?

I have just finished building this website... http://www.frankxcarter.com ...for a friend of mine. In Google Chrome the front page displays with no lines across the photograph and the link images {Journal, Photos, etc.) appear when you roll the mouse over the photograph. However, in Firefox there are thick horizontal white lines across the image and in Internet Explorer the rollovers don't display properly at all! Any advice as to how I can rectify will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Theo

Firefox restoring the wrong tabs

I have firefox (3.6.8) running with 20-30 tabs open, and sometimes when I close it, I fail to realize there is one small pop-up window running as well. The result is whenever I restart firefox, only the pop-up window is restored, and not the window with 30 tabs. Searching through my history works ok to retrieve some tabs, but some tabs were opened weeks ago, and I don't remember all of the tabs I had open. Is there any way to restore all of those missing tabs?

My browsers have ADD

How do I get my browser(s) to stop back tracking? When I use both Firefox and Chrome on my office computer, the browser will automatically flip back to the previous page (as if I hit the "back" button) after about 30 seconds. It will actually keep doing it until it gets back to the first page I opened in the browser. It doesn't happen with all web pages (Gmail and Metafilter seem fine), but it's particularly a problem with media sites (e.g. local newspapers, the Atlantic, Good Magazine). I mostly get around it by holding 'ctrl' when I click a link so it opens in a new tab and can't back track. But it's a pain in the butt. Is there a way to stop this?

Can't Display Unicode #0CAO -- Part of Emoticon Meme and Thus *Everywhere* -- in Mac Firefox. Help?

I can't get Unicode character 0CAO -- which is a part of a popular emoticon-based meme -- to correctly display in Firefox, despite, as far as I can tell, having the necessary fonts installed on the system. A picture speaks a thousand words, so: These are my Firefox font settings. This is how this page looks in Firefox. This is how it looks in Safari. This page suggested I needed Arial Unicode MS (which appears to already be part of the Mac OS X operating system?). I also installed a Kannada font from here. No go. Any ideas? It's not so much that I really love the meme; moreso that I really detest seeing those Unicode boxes pop up everywhere on God's green Earth when the character fails to display in Firefox.
