The favicon is the image/icon placed in front of the URL in the address bar. Cookies are required to be logged in to Gmail (or any webmail). In any case, you can set permissions on Gmail (click on the favorite icon > more info > permissions) as the setting of cookies. In any case, you can try to delete all cookies in Firefox. And remember Gmail is part of Google services, perhaps, be connected to Youtube or Google Docs allows you to stay connected to Gmail.

    Step 2: If the problem is solved in SafeMode with networking, then I suggest to perform clean boot and remove the program that is causing the problem.

    I recently installed Advance Care program. After that, I had several problems with my computer. The one I'm writing about is that every page I visit is automatically saved to Favorites. And some I want to bookmark disappear. How can I solve this problem?

  • Incompatible with Firefox 31.0 Dashlane I try to recharge 30 Firefox 3.0.3. but it keeps downloading 31.0? How can I stop Firefox to upload on the new version?

    My Dashlane 3.0.3 is incompatible with Firefox 31.0. I meet this problem every time there is a new version of Firefox. In the past, I would go to the archives and get a Firefox from a number of earlier version and load this. For some reason, (probably simple). I will load the lower version and it will automatically install the next version number. I can't stop the automatic updates. I had installed Firefox 30.0 and it worked with Dashlane 3.0.3 but the system automatically downloaded the version more recent 31.0 number and of course, this is inconsistent. Dashlane is not able to write codes fast enough to install in due course to work with Firefox. I did was to say that Firefox was the only browser that I use and I used it for many years. I don't like Crome or IE. You're just a browser better, that's all.

    I didn't mean that somewhere, I lost my toolbar in Firefox and could not find a use which was also good. Just an info. You can send me any resolution you can find at: [email protected]
    Thank you for your help.

    You should not use older versions of Firefox, they are insecure, their use can lead to your personal information being stolen. Please update Dashlane to its latest version.

  • Some of the messages I'm getting seem to appear randomly in my drafts folder - how can I stop this?

    I used save as draft before, but now the messages seem to just randomly appear in the folder. At the same time, I got 200 messages 'project', messages, I had already sent. It takes a kind of problem of "timer", that is, if I leave the PC for a while without having 'saved' message, I'm working on.

    There is a default parameter to save a draft every 5 minutes if you take a lot of time to compose a message. The setting can be found in Options/Preferences > Composition.

  • Select all the points when feather fill/close a path of the tool. How can I STOP doing this?

    Hi Schriftenhaus,

    In CS6, the path is deselected, but still actively targeted. Vector was significantly redesigned after that, and it seems that the default is now to leave entirely selected. I personally prefer, but I understand wanting to option. I don't know any preference to change the behavior, though. Press A (for the selection/direct selection tool) immediately after the drawing by clicking away from it désélectionnera it.

  • Thunderbird is not save my password even if I continue to check the Save password box. Fails to retrieve mail when I check the box.

    Recently, I've migrated my profile of Thunderbird to a new computer. Everything works great, except that Thunderbird doesn't remember my password for the account. I am the only user on the machine, and I check only one account, so I don't want to set up a master password... I want just the program to remember my password for the e-mail account. I get the question 'Do you want to save your password?', every time I run the program... but if I check the box to do this, mail is not retrieved. (No error message, just nothing happens.) If I get the password without the box, the mail is retrieved. Even with the sending - I wonder for the time of password the first by session I have send a message. If I check the box 'Save password' send fails. If I do not check the box, sending passes.

    This has been a consistent behavior for about a month now. I'm not just randomly in the password incorrectly. It happens that way every time.

    That is what it is? Y at - it a fix for this? I want to just Thunderbird to remember my password.

    Try this:

    Make folders and hidden files visible

    In thunderbird

    • Help > troubleshooting information
    • Click on the view file"" button.

    a new window opens showing profile_name folder.

    • Close Thunderbird now - this is important
    • Scroll down - find and delete this file: key3db
    • Close this window - upper-right X

    Restart Thunderbird.

    At the password prompt, enter the password and select the "Manager password use to remember the password" check box and click OK.

    Note: If you use a product like CCleaner, then it's probably compensation info session and password. In this case, you will need to make an exception for files of thunderbird in CCleaner to stop cleaning Thunderbird.

    Please report on the results.

  • How can I stop the click "" Firefox"is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it? » ?

There are displays on internet and previous assignments on this resolution by using Terminal commands for OS X 10.5.x & 10.6.x, but these commands do NOT work in 10.7.x or 10.8.x.

    Open the Firefox disk image (DMG) file and drag the Firefox program in the folder of the application on your hard drive.
    You should not double-click the Firefox application to run from the disk image and drag it out of the DMG file instead.
