Firefox places.sqlite problem

Q: Firefox places.sqlite problem

I'm having multiple problems with firefox, ever since I updated from Firefox 15, to 16. First off, the bookmarks toolbar doesn't show, unless I click uncheck then recheck the view bookmarks toolbar button. Second, I can't use the back/forward and refresh buttons. An lastly, whenever I click on a lnik that usually opens in a new tab, it opens in a new window instead.
I've heard that this is a problem with the places.sqlite file in the profile folder of Firefox. I read that to fix this multi symptom problem, I have to delete those places files while firefox is closed, an open firefox. That doesn't do anything but screw up my fastdial bookmarks. All the problems still occur.

How can I fix firefox to work the same as it normally should?

A: Firefox places.sqlite problem

"How can I fix firefox to work the same as it normally should? "

If you want software to work properly do not use beta versions. Firefox 16 is not officially released yet as a finished product. Beta software should be installed on a spare PC so you can test it without it affecting your normal activities on your main PC.

Hi Everyone,

I have been asked to recover the browsing History of a Firefox (14) installation. At the moment I can only see back 7 days. However it has come to my attention that Firefox saves both the Bookmarks & the History in a file called places.sqlite and the file that I am working with is 10.5 Megabytes in size. I suspect that there is more than 7 days of History in my places file, as there are not too many bookmarks.

Is there any way of looking at History (even potentially deleted history) with the places (and or other profile) file(s)?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

I have an Acer Netbook which was functioning very well with Mozilla Firefox as my search engine. It now will not connect to any internet sites. I am now using internet explorer on my Netbook, which works well. Is there a simple way to get Firefox back. I have removed it from my programs & reinstalled it, to no avail.

A:Firefox won't take me to n et places

I'm going to jump on this thread too. Just the other day, my firefox stopped connecting to TSF and that is the only site I have found that I can't connect to. I can connect to TSF via IE with no problems. Any ideas why it would selectively not connect to one site?

What do the version numbers in browser.places.smartBookmarksVersion mean? I can find no explanation. If the value is 0, I know that Bookmarks will have the folders for most viewed and most recent, but what about the others (up to 4)? I had the value change to 1 after I removed those folders (back in FF 3), and copied that into user.js from prefs.js, but now the value is 4, even though I did not change the value in user.js. There is nothing wrong with the user.js file, so how does the value change to 4, and what does the 4 mean?

I checked FF 3.6.28 in my old laptop, and its setting for browser.places.smartBookmarksVersion is 2. That user.js file was originally in that computer, so that was the origin of that setting of version 1 in this one. There is nothing wrong with user.js in the older computer either. What does the 2 mean?

A:browser.places.smartBookmarksVersion in Firefox

I don't know the 1-4 meanings, but if you're not setting in about:config, you have to use double \\s. Like this C:\\Path\\To\\bookmarks.html in user.js

I'd like to set Firefox Profile Folder as an item in Windows Places Bar.

Common File Dialog Box - Customize Places Bar

The folder's name includes random characters assigned by Firefox.
Is there a way to set the item in the Places Bar to "Firefox Profile" (i.e. NOT "xyxyxy.default") without changing the folder's name?
Thank you.

A:Set Firefox Profile Folder in Places Bar

Hello Yaron,

You might see how it'll work by creating a shortcut of the folder with a name you want, save the shortcut to where you want to keep it at, then use the shortcut's path in the places bar to see if it will display the shortcut name instead of folder name.

Hope this helps,

sqlite files fill my temp folders and show up on every virus scan. Also when I do my daily back-ups onto external hard drive they can't be copied because they are "in use". They aren't delete-able. What are they and do I need them and if not, how can I get rid of them? Thanks!

A:Sqlite - What Is It, Do I Need It?

QLite is a small C library that implements a self-contained, embeddable, zero-configuration SQL database engine. Features include:* Transactions are atomic, consistent, isolated, and durable (ACID) even after system crashes and power failures. * Zero-configuration - no setup or administration needed. * Implements most of SQL92. (Features not supported) * A complete database is stored in a single disk file. * Database files can be freely shared between machines with different byte orders. * Supports terabyte-sized databases and gigabyte-sized strings and blobs. (See limits.html.) * Small code footprint: less than 250KiB fully configured or less than 150KiB with optional features omitted. * Faster than popular client/server database engines for most common operations. * Simple, easy to use API. * TCL bindings included. Bindings for many other languages available separately. * Well-commented source code with over 98% test coverage. * Available as a single ANSI-C source-code file that you can easily drop into another project. * Self-contained: no external dependencies. * Sources are in the public domain. Use for any purpose.The SQLite distribution comes with a standalone command-line access program (sqlite) that can be used to administer an SQLite database and which serves as an example of how to use the SQLite library. This is from the SQLite Website:

It appears based upon other's comments that the is not a very friendly version. I also have been unable to successfully convert to a more friendly version of SQLite.

My main desktop PC is running Windows Media Center and wired to the internet, my second desktop PC is running Windows XP and is wireless, my 3rd PC is a wireless laptop. I have set up shared drives on both desktop PCs. Every time I reboot either of my PCs, the shared drives go away when I try to access them from my laptop. If I open up My Network Places on my main PC, the shared drives will show there(after having it open for a few seconds) and then they will show on my laptop. Is there a service that needs to run automatically on my desktop PCs for this not to happen?

One more thing, all firewalls are down.

A:My Network Places Problem

During a reboot Windows completely shuts down. With no operating system running, the computer (and all of its drives) is off the network. After Windows boots again the computer's network connection is (usually) reestablished.

The only way to prevent this is to not restart Windows.

I set up ftp access to my web hosting account through the My Network Places thing in Win 2K, and it worked. Has worked for months. Then today is no longer worked, but gave me this error message instead:

Windows cannot access this folder. Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.

The computer is disconnected from the network.

The first part is ok. I have typed the name correctly, and I do have permissions. The last part is strange. My computer is connected to the network (hence this post through my browser), and the ftp computer I am connecting to is connected to the network (have tested by alternate means.)

Anybody understand what this error means? Is it something to do with mapping a network drive? Any ideas to get my ftp up and going again, and if not any suggestions for a simple (and free) windows FTP client I should use?

Twice in about the last two weeks, I have encountered the following set of circumstances in different locations with people who don't know each other. Anyone know of a virus going around that might be causing this:
The user states it was running fine when they left it (left it on).
When the user returned, the computer was displaying a black POST screen with a message (words to the effect) indicating the system cannot find the boot sector.
Examination of the hard disk indicates there are no partitions
Data recovery programs find absolutely nothing on the active partition and only a very few unrecoverable file (names) in the system recovery partition.
To be clear, it is as though the active partition has been zeroed.

I have checked the firewall and even deleted the IP's on each PC and retyped them into the firewalls on each pc and the problem still continues. Also, i tryed a reboot of the pc, even rebooted the router and the internet router and then told the firewall who each pc is as it resets the IP's or somrthing and i hate this networking stuff! - one more, iv'e tried disabling all the firewalls on the pc's nothing.

He found in the Windows Folder then Temp Folder a file SQLITE which takes up the whole of my C Drive memory - we 'googled' and came across your site.

I've been following the problems that Garrity had in April 2007, as my problem is exactly the same, can delete previous days sqlite but when trying to delete todays it says someone else is using the programme etc.etc. and I'm the only who uses this computer and it's the only one we have.

This sqlilte runs from when I switch on my computer until I switch it off.

I got upto number 7 where Howard advises to run search, I've done this and have found:-

1 item in C:\WINDOWS\temp sqlite_arCU2bIS13bEHCf 62,149,228kb
2 in C:\Program Files\Adobe\R.... 252kb

Can anyone help me and advise what to do next? I am a complete novice with the technical side of things but I can follow instructions. Many thanks

A:Temp file cannot delete sqlite


if its SQLITE then it runs as a service and this would need to be stopped before you can remove it.

click start then run and enter services.msc

go down the list of services and find sqlite....then stop it and change its startup type to disabled.

now reboot the PC and then you should be able to delete it.

By the way if your interested SQlite is a database management tool used in things like this forum if your running anything like that then they wont work anymore.

Dear forum,
I don't know how this started, but I've tried so many things to just get rid of these adware showing up in these scans but they just keep coming back. They all appear to be SQLITE. I have no idea what SQLITE is and a lot of the times web searches say these are harmless. I could just switch off the computer cleaning off 64 of them on one day, and switch them off and have 100 in a scan on another day.
What started it? I think it was that last time I was trying to stream a movie and clicked on some faux link instead. I think that's what started it. I think.
I tried blocking it on Blocksite, and AdBlock. So far AdBlock detects these better, and I've actually been looking at the scan logs and finding the website names in the Adblock "Open blockable items" feature and blocking them. But I only frequent some sites, and I can't find them other SQLITEs anywhere. So far I only have blocked on Adblock. ||* <--- They kinda look like this in the Custom Filter tab.
So far, I noticed that it opens "disappearing pop-ups" where you just click on something or just somewhere on a browser page and a pop-up seems to come up for 0.5 seconds and disappear into the moonlight, but I know that was a pop-up and disappearing pop-ups are a thing.

Hi to all,

In my report, there is a calculated column called Cost that display as $13.13. The orginal value is 13.125. This column is used to calculate another field called leftover.

The expected result is $16.00 - $13.13 = $2.87
The actual result is $16.00 - $13.125 = $2.88. So there is a increase of $0.01.

The results in my report is run using a query. In the query, I set the format of the calculated field, Cost as $#,##0.00;($#,##0.00). How can I ensure that whatever it calculate is what's displayed?

I have done my best to show what I mean by attaching screen shots from my Asus computer. The Toshiba has only the "1850house" name in its networking "files."

Strangely, both computers can access one another, with one exception where I am being denied permission to access the Toshiba's "C" drive from the Asus. [See last screen shot.] I can, however, access the Asus' "C" drive from the Toshiba.

I set the permissions for accessing the Toshiba's "C" drive for "everyone." [I am the only person who has access to the computers and they are password protected.]

I would really appreciate some help on this, I have looked EVERYWHERE, even these forums, and every topic i find has many ideas but none seem to work. Of course I will try them all again if needed and recommended.

Anyway here is what it is...

I have very inconsistent access to the internet through my main computer. I had added new computer to the network a long time ago and they both worked fine for a long time. When i added a third however this problem began, (Im not sure if that is the cause, becuase it hasnt even been connected to the network for the majority of the time ive had the problem, its been in a corner because of monitor issues)

Sometimes the internet works (not on main comp now) other tiems it doesnt, when it does it seems slower than it should.

I can't see any network places of other computers from main comp, and repairing the connection gives the problem, task can't be completed : clearing NetBT.

Other computer does not have this problem at all, and has reliable internet access, and can see network places.

I have tried alot of things, would be happy for help please.
EDIT: All comps on XP
Can't ping other machines.
Networked through router
Thanks in advance

A:Clearing NetBT, Network places internet acces, (one problem 3 issues I believe)

Is the router assigning IP's? You say you can't ping other machines, can you ping the router? If you can ping the router, and if the router is providing IP's, open a command prompt at each machine and type "ipconfig /release & ipconfig /flushdns & ipconfig /registerdns & ipconfig /renew".

Hi peeps, here's a seemingly unsolvable problem I have:

I want to network my two PCs (An Acer Vista Laptop and my old HP XP Desktop) so that I can play network games (Operation Flashpoint).

So I connect them both wirelessly to the router (a cheap SWEEX one). Now when Iook on my Vista Laptop's Network place I can see the Laptop I'm using the router (and can access it's page and everything) but I can't see my XP desktop from here. And when I go into the Desktop's network places I can't see the router or either of the computers I'm using.

And I assume that this network problem is why I can't see a server in my game.

Now I understand that file and printer sharing is turned, the firewall is definately turned off and I think the appropriate services are turned on (well to make sure I turned every single service on ) There must be some more complex reason why my XP hates to network!

Although I am by no means a noob to general computing I am reasonably new to networking. Can you clever lot help me?

Iím running two XP Pro desktops as well a Windows Home Server (WHS) computer on a hardwired network. Last week my Belkin Wireless router failed and I installed a new Linksys E1000.

I now again have internet access on all desktops plus my two wireless laptops. In addition, I can access all pcís via remote desktop.

My problem is that I no longer have network access to these computers Ė in other words, "My Network Places" keeps telling me "I might not have permissions to use this network resourse". This means that I canít get to my networked HP printer attached to one of my desktop pc's. In addition I can't view the files except logging on via remote desktop

This all appears to have happened since I installed the new router, however I'm not certain it's a router problem since I was able to borrow another router and had the same situation!

I am reasonably network knowledgable. I can ping all computers with both name or address. For some unknown reason, I do have network access only to my WHS computer.

Spent quite a bit of time on this problem and have run out of idead - greately appreciate any and all help!!

I am having this weird problem that makes me want to not use firefox. It only happens to me on my laptop. When I use firefox anywhere else I have never seen and it none of my friends have either.

It doesnt always happen as soon as I open firefox, but after using it for a few minutes it like firefox pushes the cursor on me while I am typing. It happens if im trying to write email, search on google, type in forums, and anywhere else I have to type within the firefox browser.

Also in internet explorer the problem DOES NOT happen.

For example: If I search for "redsox"
When I type in firefox it does this resoxd

The cursor moves backwards and pushes the letters forward causing misspellings and it gets worse and worse. Sometimes it pushes the cursor about 3 times per word and it is unususable.

I have completely removed firefox and re-installed which did not help.

I have run sfc /scannow and that didn't help.

I have seen like 1 other person post online with a similar problem so it seems to be rare but I dont know what to do.

Please help.

Hi Guys

I am new to this forum and have limited knowledge of computers.
I was using Firefox version 2 and was very happy until I was requested to download version 3. Now I seem to have endless crashes and keep getting told Firefox has a problem & needs to close. Up to 5 x a day.

This is very frustrating.
This happens with avg, facebook ,all internet functions.

I have spybot running and avg and says there are no problems.

We had a power failure earlier yesterday and when I switched back on Microsoft suggested I check the C drive as there was a problem -but that seems to have sorted itself out.-probably due to not closing down properly.

So can you help me with detailed instructions on how to fix forefox or totally remove it and install from the beginning or is there major problems with that version 3 .1 ?

It sounds like you did it incorrectly and the appropriate links in the registry hives were not updated. Therefore when windows cannot find it it goes for the next folder in line.

instances of field name usage.

Is there a way to find in what objects this field is being used in the database?

For the life of me I can't remember why I put this field in or if its even used now.

This database has had many versions over the years.

I have searched many of the queries but can not find where this field is used.

If there isn't a way I plan to backup, remove field from table and test all the features of the program to see which crashes. However I'm hoping there might be a quicker way.

Is there a simple way to get wireless or wired internet in both locations?

thanks in advance

I feel really dumb about this one.
The system SAYS it's connected to the network. It's sending and receiving packets. It's pinging everything I* ask it to... but when I go to network places, there is nothing there. I'm not sure what the problem is, or how to approach this. I have already tried kicking the computer. That did not work.

Hey, I have network setup with my brothers computer, and we share files and stuff. I always put the files in the " my network places folder " and never had problems. But now all of a sudden my " my network places " folder is completely blank, and I cant get files from his computer. But on his computer, he has all the files in his " my network places " folder. How can I get my stuff to show up in the folder?

Well I upgraded my main computer with new RAM. So I would like to upgrade my backup computer with probably 2GB, since it only has 2 slots. It's XP and the ram I have left is too small but fits in it. It's DDR 266MHz, so I'm guessing PC2100. Does anybody know of any online sites that might have it for a pretty decent price? Preferably under $30. I looked on Ebay but the sellers don't have feedback that I'd agree with. Thanks...

I think I have seen this linked to a problem that, as usual, MS knows about but doesn't fix. I believe it's something to do with the way that win 2k+ and the scheduled tasks in computers. There is a way to disable looking for scheduled tasks automatically every time you try and brouse the network. Just google it and you should find the registery setting.

Remember those times when using the Internet and (owning a personal computer) was a luxury? Those times were much safer, weren?t they? The more we become dependent on the Web, the more we expose ourselves to various security and privacy related risks.

Besides your circle of friends and people you want to get in touch with, the Internet is full of scammers and spammers, malvertisers and malware droppers, and dubious ?third party? services impatiently looking forward to collecting your personally identifiable information. The more the Internet evolves, the more dangerous it becomes.

If a user is smart enough and knows a thing or two about cyber security, they might be able to escape some of the dangers the big online village hides. The very first thing to keep in mind, however, is that dangers lurk not only in the ?darkest? places (like visibly illegal websites). Thanks to the evolution of malicious tactics, even completely legitimate websites and services can be compromised. And they are, more often than not!

Unfortunately, we?ve been observing an uptake in malicious attacks on social media, financial and healthcare institutions, file sharing and torrent sites, and popular entertainment websites. Attack vectors change, and their scope is broadening with every single day. With that said, you should definitely know your average online risks, as you won?t see a ?Danger Zone!? sign identifying them for you. (You might notice other signs that help identify mali...

Why is it when I look up the IP address to a URL
it sometime takes me to a different website, when
I type the IP in the box ?


A:Different Places same address

Many websites are hosted on what are known as shared hosting servers. Indeed this is the most affordable way to host a website and is appropriate for websites that don't have enormous amounts of traffic. A side effect of this, however, is that more than one website will be at a given IP address. Let's say you visit in your browser and that is hosted on a shared server. Your browser first does the DNS lookup and sees that lives at 123.456.789.001. So a request is sent to 123.456.789.001 for the page you requested. Along with the name of the file, the request also has a section named "host" which is the name of the website ( The web server software that's running on 123.456.789.001 sees this and is thereby able to send back the correct webpage. However if the "host" field is blank or invalid, then the web server software will (usually) treat the request as being addressed to a pre-configured fallback host.That's why you can visit 123.456.789.001 in your web browser and get a completely different website than if you entered the domain name.Edit:It's possible to find out what other websites are living on the same server by using one of several online tools. Like this one.

Good afternoon. I have 20 computers on my network. Some of them don't reflect all the shared folders on the network in "My Network Places". I am able to type in a shared folder that is not displayed in the address field using \\computer\share. Is there a way to refresh the shares? Some computers only show only 4 or 5 of the shares on the network (there are about 20 shares total), and none of the server shares. Please help. Thank you.

There are a couple of ways to fix this. It sounds like you don't have a local DNS server or WINS server running, that will resolve many browsing issues. If you're running W2K server, you might consider running the WINS server. You can also install NETBEUI on all the machines, which is another crutch for workgroup browsing issues. Finally, if you have really persistent issues with missing shared resources, consider an entries in the LMHOSTS file for each computer in the system.

Sorry if this has been asked before-I did a search but didn't find it. I just got windows 7 after having xp. It was a new install on a new hard drive. I have 32 bit. I use carbonite so I did a selective restore. Now it seems like some files are in more than one place. I'm not talking about the libraries-I understand how those work. I'm talking about going to my c drive. For instance I have home videos that I am in the process of copying to dvd from vhs tapes. I ran Auslogics dupe finder and it shows them in 3 different locations. C:users:owner:video (I know I don't have all the symbols in there-this is just to give an idea of where) and also C:users:owner:documents:my vidoes and also c:documents and settings:owner:videos. So I selected files that were in the 2nd and 3rd location to delete and when I did, they also deleted from the first location. So are they not in all 3? If so why does Auslogics show that they are duplicates? I am restoring them now but I would like to avoid duplicates because it only makes my carbonite backup bigger than it should be. The same is happening with other files too. Are they all just mirrored with different paths somehow?

I have Windows 2000 PC and Windows XP SP2 PC.

Windows 2000 have Administrator account and User account.
WinXP have only Administrator account.

XP see's Win2000, shared folders and My Network Places on network, no problem.
BUT Win2000 can ONLY see XP with Admin account, NOT User account.

Now, all I want to do is to be able to see My Network Places with the User account, what must I do? I think obviously I have to use Admin to give User account some permissions, or edit mmc policies or something like that but dont know where to change it.

Can anybody help? Thanx.

I have a laptop with XP home edition 2002 service pack 3.. Gateway 7330 GZ, Pentium 4 CPU 3.20 GHz, 992 MB RAM, hard drive 80GB.

I have:

1. No sound in anything played in a browser( Firefox , IE and google chrome), for example in youtube, hulu , ESPN etc.
2. No sound while starting or closing the computer or clicking etc.
3. Cannot see the audio icon in the bottom trey
4. Cannot play MP3s in windows media player.Get the following message when I follow webhelp. MP3 - MPEG Layer III (55) codec missing.

1. I Can still play and hear videos, divx in Windows media player version 11.
2 I can listen to MP3s on VLC media player and Real player.
3. I am able to hear movies in netflix.

I have gone to control panel and checked to see if anything is mute in the sound thing but it isnt. I have also tried earlier system restore points but that didn't change anything.
I have gone to Control Panels/Sounds and Audio Devices. Under Volume tab there already is a check in Place Volume Icon in taskbar. I have checked in device manager that my default device is conexant ac-link audio.

I have checked there is a speaker Icon next to start windows and other sounds.

Also none of the volumes are muted, ofcourse since I can hear mp3s and hear movies in netflix.

Suddenly, "My Network Places" is denying me access to the rest of the computers on the wireless network in my home. Where the window used to list all computers and folders available, it remains blank. When I click on "View Workgroup Computers", I get the error message - "Home (network name) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource . . ."

Also, this computer no longer shows up on the other computers on the network in their "My Network Places" windows.

I have run the network setup wizard again, to no avail. System restore has failed also. I don't know what changed in the last 24 hours, and don't know what else to try.

I had 2 pcs and two laptops all talking to eachother ok, file sharing ok. Main pc, with belkin 54g router running Xp, rest wireless.

Following HD faiure and a new HD I am having problems getting the Main pc to 'see' others or others see it. The wireless laptops and pc are seeing eachother ok, just not the Main pc. Each time I boot it up it's different. I have run the network wizard to try and restablish connection with the others, but sometimes the others show up in My network places, more usually they dont.

Any ideas? I know absolutely NOTHING about setting up networking so maybe missing something stupidly simple!

Edited to add... I think its being caused by Bitdefenders firewall.. if I disable it (I just discovered) I can rerun the wizardand it works. So how do I configure Bit defender to let me network???

A:network places comes and goes

Make sure the problem PC is in the same workgroup as the others, and that there is no 3rd party firewall blocking LAN access.

Also keep in mind that after any change to the network (includes restarting a computer) it may take 15 to 20 minutes for all computers to get up to date information about the computers and shares on the network--in other words you can't always rely on My Network Places.

In My Network Places I have a shared directory on another computer that doesn't exist. (The directory, not the computer.) On Comp A I can browse the network or move files to D1 on comp B. If I get there by MNP>D1 on B, then the only item that shows in the directory is the one I just copied or moved. And the file doesn't actually exist on that computer.

However, MNP>Entire Network>MS WIN Network>Workgroup>Comp B>D1 on Comp B allows me to move or copy and it then exists on that computer. I'm also then able to see other files in that directory.

Is there a way to fix this or to have shared directories not show unless you use the latter method?

Pjs; Welcome to Windows 7 Forums, we are glad you are here. I have felt your pain and frustration!

Based on your statement here quoted, you need to know that "HomeGroup" only applies to Windows 7 Computers. XP cannot join a HomeGroup. However, you can still network your XP computers with your 7 computer using the "Workgroup". Be sure all computers have the same "Workgroup" name.

Because of the integration of Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer, they share a number of settings.

Try opening Internet Explorer, go to tools, Internet options, advanced, then select Reuse windows when launching shortcuts. Click apply and OK. This should resolve your problem, but be aware that it will screw things up on other sites when you follow a link it will cause your original page to disappear except in history.
