For common Firefox settings, go to:
Tools > Options

For technical settings ("preferences"), enter "about:config" (no quote marks) in the browser address bar. You can then change individual settings.

Make google my home page


Ignore what I wrote above - I pressed enter before editing properly.
This is the example for the Firefox browser.
1. From you web browser's menu select "Preferences" - in Firefox click on "Edit" then "Preferences" in the drop-down menu.
2. The preferences window should appear opened to the "General" tab. If another tab is opened then click on the "General" tab.
3. You will see "When Firefox starts: Show my homepage" - If "Show my homepage" is not showing then you can select it by clicking on whatever is in the window currently and choose it from the drop-down menu.
4. Next - in the "Home Page:" window type "www.google.com" .
5. Final step in setting your preferences - below the window that you just filled in step 4. is a button/sign that says "Use Current Pages". Left-click on this button/sign.
6. Close the preferences window. Next time you startup your browser the google website should appear as your home page.

Good Luck,

Remove popups on toolbar


The open source web browser Mozilla Firefox features a number of tools for blocking web annoyances that include pop-up ads. By default, the pop-up blocker in Firefox is enabled but if you are still seeing pop-up ads, the tool might have been turned off at some point. You can quickly re-enable the pop-up blocker from the Firefox settings.

Launch Firefox. Select "Firefox," then "Preferences" and then "Preferences." Select the "Content" tab. Check "Block pop-up windows" and then click "Close."

I accidentally change my browser,restriction is the message appear in my windows,how do i set this into my default?


As we all know, when the Mozilla Firefox is installed, another version called "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)" is installed. But most firefox users don't know it's importance and would consider it to run in Safe Mode. This feature is also used to Change the Firefox settings/preferences.

If you've messed up with the security settings, add-ons, etc..etc.. we have to reset all the settings from the Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode). To do this, follow the steps below:

For windows xp

Click "Start" then "Run" and type in "firefox -safe-mode" [Note: one space after "firefox"] and press enter. A new window will open up (shown below)

You can select whatever you want to restore, but if you only need to reset the changes you've made to the "Preferences", then simply select (check mark) the "Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults" and click "Make Changes and Restart". Once you click the "Make Changes and Restart", firefox will restart.

If your operating system isn't Windows XP, then the commands are as follows:

Windows Vista and Windows 7

Click "Start" then "Start Search" and type in "firefox.exe -safe-mode" (one space after firefox.exe).

Mac OS

Open, "Application" and "Utilities" then "Terminal" and type in "/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -safe-mode" and press enter"

Linux

Open "Terminal" then type in "/path/to/firefox/firefox -safe-mode"


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to stop all computer downloads


First,
In Firefox 3.6.3, under Firefox Preferences/ Security tab, please check the box that says
"Warn me sites try to install add-ons".

In addition, there's a pushbutton for "Exceptions"
Once you press the button, it takes you to a list of sites that are allowed to install add-ons.

Surprise, surprise ! This is where you usually see
addons.mozilla.org and
update.mozilla.org.

Remove these sites if you don't want automatic updates.

Second : under Firefox Preferences/ Advanced/ Update tab, please clear all the checkboxes to disable automatic checking for updates.

If you are using Firefox,
  1. At the top of the Firefox windowOn the menu bar, click on the ToolsFirefoxEdit menu, and select Options...Preferences....
  2. Select the Privacy panel.
  3. If Always clear my private data when I close Firefox is not selected, your Firefox is not set to clear your passwords when you close it. You can skip to the next section.
