When I change my Internet (proxy) and home page settings and then close and reopen Firefox, they are not saved. Why is this happening?

I am going under Tools and Options, then Advanced -> Network -> Settings and changing the automatic configuration script for my work network. When I hit OK everything works. But when I close out Firefox, and then reopen it at a later time, it does not save the setting change I made and I have to do it all over again. This is also happening when I change my home page information as well...

  • Downloads just disappear from the specified location such as "Desktop" or "My Documents".They are untraceable afterwards.Why does this happen?And because of this I have uninstalled Firefox and now use Chrome.

    I have been using Firefox for almost a year now,and had upgraded to Version 7 recently.
    My problem started with the downloads.
    1) When a download is to be commenced,a box appears with two options,namely "SAVE" and "CANCEL".
    Even when I click on "SAVE",the the box shows it as 'cancelled'.When I right click on the box,another dialogue box appears with a number of choices ,the top one reads 'RETRY'.
    When I click this option the download starts and it is shown in the chosen location until 99% is completed,bu the moment the download is complete,the item i.e. the downloaded item just disappears from the chosen location and is not traceable thereafter.This has happened to me repeatedly over the past week or so and I am so disgusted that I have been compelled to uninstall Firefox,and have started using Chrome.
    Please help,as I would like to get back to using Firefox again but without the above problems.

    Understood.  However, the point that I'm trying to make is that it's not the WiFi access point's security that's in question, it's having your phone's WiFi in an always-on mode that's in question.  It's simple: if your phone's WiFi is on, then it is both discoverable and hackable... even when it's not connected to a WiFi network or access point.  Here's an article about a drone in London that was created to hack smartphone WiFi signals (and hackers have been doing what this drone does for years):
    http://money.cnn.com/2014/03/20/technology/security/drone-phone/
    The point is that it's not  secure to have your phone's WiFi in an always-on mode.  It would be better for privacy and security if Apple made WiFi location aware so that it is only enabled when you are at a trusted location (e.g. your home or office).  Or, at least give us the option of location aware WiFi so that each user can determine the best mode for their phone:
    (1) Always-On (current default - not secure and many privacy issues).
    (2) Trusted mode (only on at trusted locations).
    (3) Off.

  • When I want to get on my wifi I tap my wifi in settings but it just loads and says unable to connect. It wont let me sign in. All my family's apple products are working. Why is this happening?

    Try the following to rule out a software problem:                 
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Power off and then back on the router
    - Reset network settings: Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings
    - iOS: Troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks and connections
    - Wi-Fi: Unable to connect to an 802.11n Wi-Fi network
    - iOS: Recommended settings for Wi-Fi routers and access points
    - Restore from backup. See:
    iOS: How to back up
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    If still problem make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

  • My MacBook Air shuts down when its more than half way charged and won't turn on unless I plug it in to the adapter? Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

    My MacBook Air shuts down when its more than half way charged and won't turn on unless I plug it in to the adapter? Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

    If you really do have a Mid 2013 Mac Air model then it is still in warranty, as the standard Apple warranty is one year from date of purchase. So take it into an Apple store and have it diagnosed and fixed under the warranty. There is some type of hardware problem that only Apple can fix.

    Hey High Socks,
    Thanks for the question. If I understand correctly, iTunes isn't working when you try to launch it. I would recommend that you read this article, it may be able to help you isolate or resolve the issue.

  • All folders on my iMac are in alphabetical order, however, when I save an item to a folder they are not. Why?

    All folders on my iMac are in alphabetical order, however, when I save an item to a folder they are not. Why?

    Thanks for helping BDAqua
    No it doesn't.
    If I go to that folder afterwards, it is all in alphabetical order.
    If I am working in Quickbooks, Mail or QuarkXpress and go to a folder from those programs the folder is out of order and I waste a lot of time
    searching through the folder looking for what I want. This never used to be a problem until the last couple of months.

  • Hi. I just got the iPhone 6, plugged into itunes and made the mistake of putting an OLD back up on my new phone resulting in losing all contacts after 2013. They are not saved on the cloud. Is there any way to go back to before I screwed up?

    Hi. I just got the iPhone 6, plugged into itunes and made the mistake of putting an OLD back up on my new phone resulting in losing all contacts after 2013. They are not saved on the cloud. Is there any way to go back to before I screwed up?

    If you have performed a sync with the device since you restored this old backup, then don't bother looking for another backup. iTunes writes over the last backup each time you sync. If you were handling contacts in iCloud, you would find them by logging into iCloud. Or you can check settings and iCloud and see if the button it on for Contacts. Otherwise it might have been on the computer, if you had a program that syncs with iTunes and handles contacts, depending on the computer system you use. If Windows, it would be Windows Contacts or Outlook. If a Mac, there is a Mac Address book as well.

  • In Mac Mail on OS 10.5.8 I am receiving bogus emails which claim to be sent by people in my address book, but actually are not.  How does this happen and how can I correct this problem

    n Mac Mail on OS 10.5.8 I am receiving bogus emails which claim to be sent by people in my address book, but actually are not.  How does this happen and how can I correct this problem

    You said:
    I am receiving bogus emails which claim to be sent by people in my address book, but actually are not.
    ...and:
    Are you saying that my address book has not been hacked into?  That others are getting these email addresses from another source?
    This confuses me.  Are you saying that you are receiving bogus e-mails from some of your contacts, or are you saying that they are receiving bogus e-mails from you?
    If the latter, there are a number of reasons that people might be getting e-mail from you.  Malware, though technically possible, is extremely unlikely.  See Someone is sending messages from my e-mail address!
    If the former, that's rather unusual.  The only decent explanation I can think of is that a bunch of your Windows-using contacts got infected with something and their machines are being used to spam everyone in their contact lists, which would include you.

  • Photostream Issue - I have had several phones over the years all backing up via iCloud/Photostream. It seems that the oldest of my photos and videos are simply gone and I cannot seem to figure out how to get access to them. Why is this happening?

    Photostream Issue - I have had several phones over the years all backing up via iCloud/Photostream. It seems that the oldest of my photos and videos are simply gone and I cannot seem to figure out how to get access to them. Why is this happening? Is there anything I can do to get them back? I'm freaked out by the thought that I am paying for what I thought was a safe place for my photos to be stored and accessed later but now see that there are nearly 500 pictures/videos gone from my photostream folder. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. - Michael

    Hi newmarket,
    Photo Stream is not a respository for archiving photos. It is a cloud storage device that will store the last month or last 1000 photos taken by any device on the same Apple ID, and then will "share" those photos with all other devices that have Photo Stream turned on,and that are logged onto the same Apple ID.
    iCloud backups will contain all of the photos that were on your camera roll the last time you backed up your device.
    If you have photos outside of the Photo Stream parameters, and they are not all on your current camera roll, then you have no way to retrieve them unless you have imported them to the computer you sync with or have uploaded them to some other cloud service like DropBox.
    Sorry,

  • The last 3 or 4 times I have tried to access my account, it has told me it has been deactivated and I have to reset each time, or give credit card info again.  Why is this happening and how do I stop it?

    You must contact iTunes support to get the problem resolved.

    If there is a problem with your account or payment info, you cannot
    download anything (including free apps or updates) until the matter
    is resolved.
    In countries where the iTunes Store only sells apps, the accepted payment methods are Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. Other payment types such as gift cards, store credit, monthly allowances, ClickandBuy, and PayPal are not accepted.

  • The sheet I am working on has lost the ability for me to scroll to the first few columns. I can't see the columns but I can cut and paste them so I know they are still there. Has this happened to others

    The sheet I am working on has lost the ability for me to scroll to the first few columns. I can't see the columns A & B but if I cut and paste the table to a new sheet, the columns I am missing will travel to the new sheet.  I have charts and other stuff related the the original table so I need to figure out why I can only see from column C  forward.  I tried to "UNHIDE" the columns but the function doesn't seem to recognise that there are columns missing. Has this happened to others and how did you fix it?

    I've seen it happen before, or at least it sounds something like what I've seen before. The table somehow gets into the margins of the page and the app doesn't know how to deal with it. Go into Print View and try moving the table away from the left side ofthe page. You might have to change content size or resize the table to get it to correct (then put you can put them back the way you like).

  • TS2755 For some reason when you try to attach mutiple photos to a text message directly from te camera roll they are not being send

    What you send doesn't get sent
    I've verified with mutiple users and they are not receiving my messages with photos attached

    A brief and probably non-helpful answer: I know of no way to eliminate your large amount of duplicates other than by repetitive, tedious manual effort.
    *There has got to be a simpler way.*
    I hope you're right, but I don't think there is a simpler way.

  • When Firefox is closed, all previous search page and home page settings are not saved. Must reset firefox and reset homepage url everytime.

    All previous search engines on "Manage Search Engines" are gone and cant access the "get more search engines"...all grayed out.

    Session Manager and Save session are the ad-ons which can solve your problem of saving previous search pages and url.
