I want to change the file location for the automatic backup file bookmarks.file, but I can't find browser.bookmarks.file in the list on the about:config page.

I asked about automatic backup of bookmarks and received the following answer:You can make Firefox 3 create an automatic HTML backup (bookmarks.html) when you exit Firefox if you set the pref [http://kb.mozillazine.org/browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML] to true on the about:config page. That backup is created by default in the profile folder as bookmarks.html, but you can set the file name and path via the pref [http://kb.mozillazine.org/browser.bookmarks.file browser.bookmarks.file] on the about:config page. I went to about:config page and toggled browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML to “Yes” and it’s working. However, I want to change the file location, but I can’t find browser.bookmarks.file in the list.

The browser.bookmarks.file preference does not exist by default. Right-click in about:config and select "New > String" to create it.

  • File, Send link doesn't open a new email. Using Firefox 11.0. Outlook 2010 is the Mailto default and W7 default email program. On the About:config page network.protocol-handler.external.mailto is set to regular font (not bold) "default Boolean true".

    File, Send link doesn’t open a new email. Running Firefox 11.0. Outlook 2010 is the Mailto default and the W7 default email program. On the About:config page, network.protocol-handler.external.mailto is set to regular font (not bold) “default Boolean true”.

    I assume you have tried toggling the setting in Firefox between Outlook and, say, Gmail:
    orange Firefox button ''or'' classic Tools menu > Options > Applications
    In the search box, type or paste '''mailto''' and pause for the list to filter.
    Change the setting and OK to save it, then return to the dialog, change back, and OK again.
    You also might want to toggle the setting at the OS level between Microsoft Outlook and the native Windows Mail client in a similar fashion. In Windows XP you could use IE's Options dialog, Programs tab, for this, but I'm not sure in Windows 7.
    Since one possibility is a problem in your Firefox settings (including the possibility of interfering add-ons), and another is a problem at the Windows level (e.g., Registry settings), it would be useful to try to identify which one it is. One quick way to distinguish is to create a new Firefox profile. It will start up with all factory settings. You can switch back to your existing profile after testing.
    First, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See [https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Backing+up+your+information Backing up your information]. (You can copy your entire Firefox profile folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.)
    After closing Firefox, start up again in the Profile Manager as described in this article: [http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles Managing profiles].
    With the new profile, can Firefox successfully create a message in Outlook?

  • I am using Aurora, but I can't find out how to ask a question for it and not firefox. My real question is how to reach the about: config page in Aurora.

    For some reason, Mozilla Support has no section for me to ask a question about Mozilla Aurora. I need to know how to reach the about: config page in Aurora and no one has apparently asked this question before. Someone please help me on this issue because no one seems to know

    Note that your System Details List shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize prefs each time Firefox starts.
    The user.js file is only present if you or other software has created this file and normally it wouldn't be there.
    You can check its content with a plain text editor (right-click: Open with) if you didn't create this file yourself.
    The user.js file is read each time Firefox is started and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session.

  • We are using version 3.6 on several machines. Is there a way to restrict users from accessing the about:config page?

    Prevent users from making modifications to the about:config page?

    You can do this with the [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3911/ Public Fox] add-on.
    It can be used to password protect access to about:config. To prevent the user from disabling/uninstalling the add-on, it also allows you to password protect the add-ons manager. You can also lock down other parts of Firefox such as the options dialog and clear history.

  • I want to change the new tab page - it currently is a list of recent site - i share the computer and find this annoying. would like all tab pages to be same as start page

    i want my new tab pages to look the same as my starter page.

    Firefox by default uses a blank page for a new tab. Something you installed has changed that action to what you are complaining about. You need to figure out which add-on made that change and disable that add-on or change the preference in that add-on.

  • HT201317 I just changed my I phone I  got all my photos from 2012 but I can't find my latest photo that I had in my old phone could some one give me an advise ?

    Hi
    I changed my I phone 4 . For some how I can't find my latest photos from my iCloud the only pictures I that I got is from 2012
    Could some one give me an advise where to find them from as they were saved in stream photo

    Photo stream only saves you photos from the last 30 days.  Older photos are deleted from photo stream even though they will remain on your device.  However, if you connect a new device to your photo stream, then will only receive the photos from the last 30 days as they others have been removed.
    If you still have your old phone and the photos are in the camera roll, import them to your computer (see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083), then sync them to your new phone.

  • Reset is grayed out in the about:config page after right clicking on specific comands to reset. What do I do?

    After being redirected by instructions in your forum, to fix a error message that says that I am using a incompatible browser. Went to about:config then, typed "useragent" in filter line, then to right click on preference name, to click reset. The reset is grayed out, therefore do not present the option to reset. Why is this, and what do I do now?

    It is not the user agent as it works for me with your user agent.<br />
    Disabling cookies or Flash or JavaScript also gives a specific error message, so I don't know what it is in your case.
    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • The update 29.0 has moved the tabs to the top, changing the "about:config" value changes nothing. Is there a solution to this problem?

    Nothing I've tried (as stated above including theme restore add-on, etc.) has returned tabs to BELOW url bar position. I had located information ( within mozilla support ) referencing instructions to delete content from a folder. Please provide specific instructions as to the location of this folder.
    Please advise.

    Firefox 29 has a completely new interface layout that doesn't work with tabs in a different position. There is an extension which modifies the toolbar area to be more like before. I haven't tried it myself. Probably a good idea to make a backup first. Alternately, you could switch back to the release channel and use Firefox 28.

  • I have a serial number for cs6 13.0 from my company but I can't find the link to download it

    Does anybody have that link or know where I can find it?

    You can use a FTP client (or your browser if it supports FTP) and download from the Adobe FTP server (ftp.adobe.com). The files are in /pub/adobe/cs6/downloads :
    Windows (launch the .exe which will open the 7z file):
    ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/cs6/downloads/Photoshop_13_LS6.7z
    ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/cs6/downloads/Photoshop_13_LS6.exe
    Mac :
    ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/cs6/downloads/Photoshop_13_LS6.dmg
    Previous versions are also available in /pub/adobe/photoshop/win and /pub/adobe/photoshop/mac
    These folders are public so you don't need any identifier to connect.

  • How can I modify the about:config page to automatically install/allow a new addon that I dropped in the profile folder?

    We are pushing policy to create an add-on for our workstations in our labs. It is the click once .net assistant, and when we push the folder, prefs.js, and config.ini with policy the add on works, but FFx comes up with the 'allow installation' tab every time. Is there a way to enable/install the addon without that page coming up?
    We work in a 'frozen' environment (Faronics DeepFreeze), so using policy for fixes like this is nice, but we are hoping to clean it up so we don't see that allow installation tab.
    Thanks for the help!

  • How i can disable the 'about:newtab' page on Firefox 9 a1 (UX)?

    I want to disable the 'about:newtab' page when I open a new tab, How i can do it?

    That doesn't look like it's related to the subject of this thread.
    BTW: Firefox 12+ versions have a browser.newtabpage.enabled pref to disable the about:newtab page.<br />
    The default of that pref in Firefox 12 (currently Beta) is false and is true in Firefox 13 (currently Aurora).

  • Rs to do, and I selected the font for each 4s clip - now I want to change the font - is there a way to change all fonts on clips in one go?

    Hi I am new to iMovie - and made a 35min film - quite pleased with it - I sub-titled it right through coz we work with deaf people - wanted my first movie to be accessible. Now I want to change the font on each clip - can I do this in one step - and change all the sub-titles to a different font - thanks a lot, Jane

    Maybe some one else can pipe up with a solution, but this would literally take 2 seconds to do for a new project.  And you can create a "template project" that includes this "text" clip.  Save this project and then to a get info and check "stationary pad."  When you double click on this file, fcp will open with a copy of this project and you just need to do a save as. 
    I've been working with computer editing systems for longer than i can remember and at a certain point you just have to adapt your workflow to the limitations of the software.

    Ok, well you'll need to do something like this. Now this part is a little dependent on your database server:
           try {
                Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver").newInstance();
                Connection c = DriverManager.getConnection(
                                                           "jdbc:mysql://{database-server}/{database-name}:3306?user={username}&password={password}");
                Statement Stmt = c.createStatement();
                int count = Stmt.executeUpdate(cmd);
                if(count>0) {
                     System.out.println("count: " + count);
            } catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
        }That was some sample code for a MySQL database.
    Note that the applet can only contact the server that is was loaded from, so you might want to do a getCodeBase() or something like that to get the server address.
    Hope this is helpful.
