I just got a windows 7 machine and tried downloading FF.

On 17.0.1 I can't find the cookies exceptions list or the list of current cookies.

On my old machine with FF 15.0.1 I use those two list a LOT, I usually have them open all day.

On 15.0.1 they are aT: Tools> Options > privacy > exceptions/cookies.

I've been searching the net all afternoon and can't find an answer about where to find them on 17.0.1.

From that same page you mention select "use custom settings for history" from the drop down list then the exceptions you are searching for should appear.

No problem, you're welcome. And I accidentally blew away all my cookies while searching for it and had to log back in to everything I had open lol.

Boy, now I owe you a bigger THANKS!

[Trying to upgrade everything and find what works at least somewhat like what I had so it helps reduce the learning curve is not my favorite activity.]

Be glad you waited until 17.0.1 to do your upgrade, Ken. :)

17.0 made my Firefox so unstable I couldn't even open the Options dialogue—or manage my add-ons, so I had to downgrade to 16.0.2. 17.0.1 seems lots more stable than 17.0 did.

ken_b: How'd your upgrade go?

I have to take back what I wrote earlier about 17.0.1 being stable. It's not. It no longer warns me when I'm about to close it with multiple tabs open.

So far, so good.

It did warn me about closing with several tabs open.

I don't have to hurry this though, so I'll take it a day at a time, so to speak, before I go to far.

I just bought this machine because Office Max had a sale on left over Win 7 machines and I really, really want to avoid Win 8 as long as possible.

So I'm hoping whole upgrade/update thing goes well.

Digging around in this process I found that Chrome came preloaded on the machine, but don't really know if I want to fire that up yet.

Loaded Opera, didn't much car for that after a fairly quick look.

I'm thinking about totally wiping-out (uninstall, remove registry entries) Firefox and starting over with a clean install to see if that makes any difference. Did you do a clean install or just an upgrade?

Chrome came preloaded

My suggestion would be to get rid of it completely and then do a clean install.

Loaded Opera, didn't much car for that after a fairly quick look.

I know a few people here, including Brett, love Opera, but I've never been able to wrap my brain around it—it's just too confusing.

Initially it was a clean install on a new machine.

But I was so frustrated I uninstalled and installed 16.0.1 thinking that might be better. Unfortunately, that came with an "instant Upgrade" to 17.0.1 and i couldn't find a way to get the old version without the instant upgrade.

So I uninstalled the whole mess again and reinstalled 17.0.1.

[added] I may have been too optimistic, I just now open FF again only to find that it had somehow installed the Yahoo! Toolbar without asking.

I deleted it and restarted the machine and reopened FF, no Y! Toolbar. We'll see how long that lasts.

So far, so good, not very hopeful though.

I hope you won't need it , but in one of these Firefox upgrade threads I posted a link to Mozilla's FTP server where you can download any previous version of FF. I'm sticking with 16.0.2 for now and have turned-off the automatic upgrade stuff. If you can't find it SM me and I'll give it to you.

Thanks, I had found that post while digging around on this.

Not sure why people are having such a bad time with FF. My Mint (linux) system offers updates as soon as they become available (a very short while after mozilla releases them) and the only bad point, apart from the stupid version numbers, was that 16 killed tabmix, which I rely on quite heavily. A visit to the tabmix web site and I found a dev version that loaded and works fine.

Out of interest, which OS is being used by those complaining here of faulty FF installations?

Hmm. Only two? :)

I wonder if it could be something windows, hence the question. Maybe not, though. It would need a lot more replies to form a sample. :)
