I have Windows XP. Firefox updated to version 6 automatically even though I have it set to notify and ask. Also just automatically updated again. How can I stop this?

I have Firefox set to automatically look for updates then ask if I want to install them. I do this when convenient (may also need to restrict downloads on another machine when paying for Internet use by amount downloaded) Until recently it did just this. Firtefox 6 seems to have downloaded & installed (& lost all passwords & cookies) I assumed this happened when someone else was using the machine & said yes. It has now automatically downloaded the latest update automatically and the settings are still set to ask me first. What has happened & how can I stop it please?

-> click '''Firefox''' button and click '''Options''' -> Privacy -> History section -> '''Firefox will: select "Use Custom Settings for History"''' -> REMOVE Checkmark from '''Permanent Private Browsing mode''' -> place Checkmarks on:
1) Remember my Browsing History 2) Remember Download History 3) Remember Search and Form History 4) Accept Cookies from sites -> click '''Exceptions...''' button -> type the addresses of the websites from which you want to Allow Cookies to be stored e.g. '''login.live.com''' , '''hotmail.com''' , '''live.com''' , '''msn.com''' -> click '''Allow''' for each, one by one 4a) Accept Third-party Cookies -> '''Keep Until : select''' '''They Expire'''
-> click '''Firefox''' button and click '''Options''' -> Security -> place Checkmarks on:
1) Warn me when sites try to install add-ons 2) Block reported attack sites 3) Block reported web forgeries 4) Remember Passwords for sites
-> Click OK on Options window -> Restart Firefox
Check and tell if its working.

    I have changed my Apple ID from an old email to a new one.  But It keeps coming up with my old email and asking for my old password. How do i stop this from happening and get it onto my new one?  Its on my Ipad and iphone 5, please help as its doing my head it

    How do you update it? Basically what has happened my password was disabled for "security reasons" on sunday (21/10/12), so i tried to reset it, but for some reason i couldnt get into my old email (probably because i havent used it for 2 years), so i read on here i could swap it to a new email that i currently use (which is what i have done) ive swapped everythin over to it (facetime, iCloud etc) but keeps coming up with old email and asking for password

  • Since updating to V10.9.4, I'm getting copies of the emails I send.  I use gmail.  How can I stop this?

    Since updating to the latest version of Mavericks, I am getting copies of all the emails I send.  Very annoying.  How can I change this back?

    By default Gmail automatically saves a copy of your sent messages. Gmail also is a non standard IMAP and for years we have had workarounds to make Gmail IMAP work in our email clients. Apple has included it's own fixes in Mavericks Mail. If you had previous workarounds this will now conflict with Mail.
    I wrote about my experiences with setting up Gmail in Mavericks Mail here. I describe how you need to reset Gmail in your browser and in Mail.
    Use Gmail with Mavericks Mail
    You might these articles about how Mail works with Gmail in Mavericks helpful.

  • My iPhone 4s keeps undeleting emails that I have deleted and delivering them as new mail. How can I stop this?

    My iPhone 4s keeps undeleting emails that I have already read and sent to the trash. I even empty the trash and it will redeliver the emails as new emails a few mi utes later. How do I stop this?  Thanks!

    Are you syncing your phone with iTunes and then with iCloud? This can cause duplicates. Sync with one or the other, but not both.

  • Everytime I open Firefox 8 my default search engine (in the upper right) changes to Yahoo. I want it to stay on google. I have even removed Yahoo as a search option but it keeps showing up on restart. How can I stop this?

    See question above.

    When I installed a new program yesterday, it also without my knowledge installed a customised Yahoo toolbar at the same time setting default search to Yahoo.
    Even though I removed the toolbar from Firefox, nothing I did would stop Yahoo from being the default search. Changing it in "manage search engines" or about:config didn't help as it was immediately reset. I wasted hours searching the web looking for a solution.
    Eventually I started task manager and noticed an application called '''searchsettings.exe''' this is '''malware''' supplied by completely completely unethical company called '''Spigot Inc''' this runs in the background forcing search back to Yahoo contrary to the computer owner's settings.
    It may be uninstalled via the Windows Control Panel. One just needs to find the toolbar to uninstall. In my case I found and removed an application called "pdfForge Toolbar" which also removed searchsettings.exe.
    I am absolutely galled at the audacity of '''Spigot Inc''' installing a program surreptitiously that prevented me from changing the settings on my own computer is completely dishonest. I refuse to use any software that installs a Spigot Inc Toolbar, it is about time that Spigot was shut down!

  • When firefox starts, an "XvidSetup.exe" window pops up asking to install the file. How can I stop this?

    This only happens opening FF, IE is ok. This started just a few days ago, but I cannot think of anything that triggered it.
    I am running Windows XP.

    Hi MSchp,
    You should check to see what your homepage has been set to or try to NOT restore the previous session. Did you try to install the xvid codec at one point? It sounds like it might be trying to load it on startup because the download url might be stored in the session history or as your homepage. Try resetting the home page to default and don't load the previous session.
    Hopefully this helps!

  • These pop-up ads for "WeFeedback" are all over, around, and interweaved throughout my facebook wall. How can I stop this annoying ad from appearing? I have a pop-up blocker on and I disabled third party cookies.

    Every time I go to Facebook, these "We Feedback" ads pop up. They appear throughout my post every other post. They appear on each side of my wall. I logged on to them and posted a comment and said that what they are doing is commendable. But STOP YOUR ADS, NOW!!!

    Install this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/
    Also, do you have McAfee Privacy Service installed? It disables the Firefox popup blocker. Disable it by clicking the Firefox button, go to Add-ons, then Extensions.
    Please also visit the [http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ Plugins Check] page and update where necessary. Outdated plugins expose your system to exploits. See the following security bulletins:<br><br>

  • When I open Firefox my homepage comes up (good!) but often a second page/tab comes up with an annoying ad. My pop-up blocker is enabled and there are no exceptions listed. How can I stop this?

    I recently had a virus attack and have cleared them with Malwarebytes Anti-malware. This problem didn't happen before the attack. In addition to happening when I open Firefox, occasionally an unwanted ad will pop-up in a new tab while using Firefox.

    Firefox can store multiple home pages, check to make sure that the ad site is not listed as a home page. See [[how to set the home page]] for details.
    You should run a scan with some other scanners to ensure that malwarebytes did not miss any. Some scanners you can try are:

  • Please help.. me and my hubby both have the iphone 4 and use the same email address and itunes account. I got mine yesterday and activated it to find all my husbands contacts on my phone. I deleted them and he lost all his contacts. How can we stop this !

    Hy please help...
    My husband purchased  an iphone at xmas and evrything was fine until i purchased 1 yesterday . We both use the same email address which is linked to our itunes account (ithink) I registered mine yesterday and all my husbands contacts came on to my phone, so i deleted them and he lost them all on his phone :-( now if he adds or deletes anything i get it or the other way round please please help

    If you are saying that you both have iCloud accounts and use the same icloud ID, then yes, the contacts will be deleted.  The idea is that all devices using the same icloud ID are kept in sync.  You need to use different IDs.  You can keep the same iTunes ID so you can share the songs and apps.  But use different icloud IDs.

  • We have 2 session in workflow if 1st session got failed-still 2nd session has to execute and workflow should go to suspended mode.How can we achieve this?

    Thanks Veeru In this case workflow will go to Failed state but I want it in Suspended mode. Can you please help over here/

    HI Mounika, At session level you have option fail parent if task fails. Failing  Parent Workflow or Worklet #You can choose  to fail the  workflow or worklet if a task fails or does not run. The workflow or worklet that  contains the task instance is called the parent. A task might not run when the input condition for  the task evaluates to False.#To fail the parent workflow or  worklet if the task fails, double-click the task and select the Fail Parent If This Task  Fails option in the  General tab. When you select this option and a task fails, it does not  prevent the other tasks in the workflow or worklet from running. Instead, the  Integration Service marks the status of the workflow or worklet as failed. If you have a  session nested within multiple worklets, you must select the Fail Parent If This Task  Fails option for  each worklet instance to see the failure at the workflow level. #To fail the parent workflow or  worklet if the task does not run, double-click the task and select the Fail Parent If This Task  Does Not Run option in the General tab. When you choose this option, the  Integration Service fails the parent workflow if a task did not run.  This will help you. Regards,Veeru

    So even if I just ask to pay them to replace the lock button they won't because my screens are third-party?
    Apple does not repair devices beyond replacing the screen on some models or a battery replacement.  They replace the ENTIRE device.
    For the Out of Warranty replacement cost, you could have gotten a fully functional replacement device.  Instead you chose to spend less to get only the screen replaced and continue to live with additional issues.
    Apple will not touch the device now.  They will know that it was opened elsewhere and that the replacement screen is not original.

  • I have 2 hotmail accounts on my mail, when I send from one account I receive the reply in my other account, how can I stop this from happening?

    I have 2 hotmail accounts in my Mac Mail, when I send from one account the reply comes back to the other hotmail account, how can I stop this?

    You should be able to open both accounts.
    I believe Hotmail T&C may expect you to have only one account, but possibly multiple alliases.
    You may have problems opening two separate hotmail accounts at once in Firefox. Try using a new private browsing window for the second one. With any look that will separate them enough for you to use both at once.
    (With other account holders permission.) I sometimes open my own and another persons hotmail account by that method.

  • I have recently updated my CC programs to the latest version and now all of my files wont open by default into their respective programs, only if I open the program and go to file open and open the file from there. How can I fix this?

    I have recently updated my CC programs to the latest version (CC2014) and now all of my files wont open by default into their respective programs, only if I open the program and go to file>open and open the file from there. How can I fix this?
    I have tried 'Open with' and the version of the program now installed on my computer isn't even suggested as an option and when I browse for it, the file wont open with it anyway

    On Windows (don't know about Mac), the latest version will always take over the file association, and become the default for indd files. It's impossible to change it.
    But there is a plugin for ID that makes this possible. Never tried it myself.

    Hello mth24car, please try to '''download and install firefox''', do the next steps:
    1. Download a copy of the latest firefox from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html (full dmg package)
    2. '''Trash''' the current Firefox application to do a clean install.
    3. Install the version that you have downloaded.

  • When I click on some links, Firefox tries to open a ton of new tabs... I have to force quit. How can I stop this?

    Sometimes when I click on a website link, Firefox goes crazy with trying to open new tabs... it keeps going until I force quit. How can I stop this?
    == This happened ==
    A few times a week
    == I clicked on a link

    See [[Firefox keeps opening many tabs or windows]]
    You can have infinite tabs opening if you have selected Firefox as the application to handle a file if you get an ''Open with'' download window.
    Firefox should not be selected as the application to handle a file and you have to remove the action that is associated with that file type.
    You can delete [http://kb.mozillazine.org/mimeTypes.rdf mimeTypes.rdf] in the [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Profile Folder] to reset all actions or set that action in Tools > Options > Applications to 'Always Ask'.
