[SOLVED] large firefox folder

Q: [SOLVED] large firefox folder

hi-i have just realised that my firefox folder is about 750mb in size.there are two files in it labelled-video.avi.ddp.they are both approx 350.oo mb in size each.is it normal to have these files?can i safely delete them?

A: [SOLVED] large firefox folder

Which Firefox folder are they in? You normally have two. One in Program Files and one in Application Data. The second one is your profile and is the one that would be more likely to get large.

Are those files in the cache?

Dell Latitude 810D probably about 4 years old running XP Pro SP3. The following has happened a few times in last 18 months but reboot has always solved problem - today it continues even after reboot. No new software has been added recently; anti-virus program runs in background all the time and full sys scan every night. Dell tech support says it is a software issue. I am not getting any error messages, just screen magnification that has not been asked for by user.

When opening Firefox or MSWord initially the web page (or word document) looks normal at a reasonable text point size, but within a few seconds it progressively zooms larger to over flow the screen. In Firefox it looks like 1,600% in Word it seems to go to 500%. In either application using the menu or keyboard shortcut to restore screen to a more readable text size only retains that for a few seconds before it zooms and over flows the screen. Usually clicking on the scroll bar to move vertically is erratic and even though you click to go down on the page the screen seems to jump downward but then back up on its own.

As I said, rebooting typical would solve things but not today. Using the computer of a friend as my laptop is impossible to work with. Typing text in browser search, or Word, or email program because of the magnification becomes nearly impossible to track. I have not tried other apps, but the magnification is consistent except that with Internet Explorer things automatically zoom out making things at ... Read more

I have Windows XP SP-3 with the latest version of Firefox 3 (3.0.6) I have a Folder under a subfolder. The folder created by me is called "Imported Favorites" The subfolder is called "Entertainment." The problem is that my Entertainment subfolder with all the bookmarked stuff is still in IE 7's bookmarks, but for some reason, when I go to my "Imported Favorites" folder in Firefox, the subfolder "Entertainment" is gone.

Some questions:

1.) How do I make sure that the subfolder Entertainment that was in Firefox's folder is really gone and just not accidentally moved? Although I have no idea how it would have gotten moved.

2.) If the Entertainment subfolder really is gone, how do I get it back into Firefox 3's Imported Favorites Folder as the subfolder it used to be (with all the bookmarks inside of the folder) WITHOUT having to reimport all my IE 7 favorites back into Firefox?

Jack.
 

A:Solved: Replacing a Missing Folder in Firefox 3

Solved!

The folder was accidentally moved down one notch in the folder tier while browsing. Went to the Bookmarks Library in Firefox 3, selected the option to organize bookmarks and simply used the Move Cmd. to place the folder back to where it was originally.

I need to ZIP a folder containing files of about 250 MB. How do I go about this in Windows 7 Home Premium? Also where is the "Compressed (zipped) Folder" (in the "send to" drop down menu) located? Thank you

A:How do I 'ZIP' a large folder in Windows 7

Launch Windows Explorer. Select all the files/folder you want to compress (you can also use CTRL+click to add more files). Right-Click > Send To > Compressed Folder. The ZIP will be located in the folder you are workin in. There is a tutorial if you need more info : Zip a File or Folder - How To

Here are screenshots of how it's done with the built-in zip feature :



If you want more features though, I recommend 7-Zip. It's lightweight, has a LOT of options, usually has better compression on ZIP (or you can use the 7z format which compresses even more), and is open-source : 7-Zip. It will add a context menu accessible via Right-Click in Explorer.

Here are screenshots of the same process with 7-zip :

Hello. New user here looking for some help. I was cutting and pasting 4 media folders from C:/media/movies to C:/media/TV shows
I cut them. Clicked my media folder link to open it in file explorer and the TV shows folder was missing.
It was just there 5 minutes prior because I was looking to see what files I had there already and what I needed to move over. This folder was pretty large...30ish shows with multiple seasons. I believe it's too large for the recycle bin, but I checked there anyway. I also ensured the view hidden folders option was checked. I can see all other hidden folders. Not sure how that would have happened anyway. Also, a search for file names produces nothing. This is the only drive on the PC. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't notice a big increase of free space as if it was deleted. All other folders in C:/media ate still intact.

A:large folder vanished

Just FYI - I no longer use "cut".  I always use "copy", then I go back and delete if it's not needed.
I've lost too many files that way
 
If you've cut and it hasn't appeared, try pasting again to see if it was just a glitch
 
Try GetDataBack Simple from here:  http://www.runtime.org/
The free version will tell you if there's something left to recover - then they'll want money if you want to recover it.
You can also use the free PCInspector from here:

I'm having trouble with a game all of a sudden and I'm not sure if it's hardware or software related, so I may try to reinstall the game (even though it has been working perfectly fine for 4 years until now ) and see if that helps.

The game... NASCAR Racing 2003 Season... takes up about 15 gigs on my hard drive. I will burn most of the files to a CD, but I'd like to copy the entire folder or subfolders somewhere else on my hard drive (ample space) to make it an easier transfer later on.

The folder is 15 Gb. Will Windows let me copy and paste something that big? How long will it take?

Or is there a certain reasonable limit for each copy and paste? Don't want to make my CPU and hard drive explode to make matters worse.

I believe that folder perrtains to your browsing history. You may want to donload ccleaner and try to remove them, if you want the space.
Before taking any action, be sure that the folders that you want to delete are identical to the one shown here: http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/cl...sing-ccleaner/

My FireFox is using large amounts of my CPU. I have a Core 2 Duo 2.66 E6750, so I don't really see how it could be using that much. Along with this, I'm encountering lag with what I'm doing.

At the moment it is using roughly 50% but earlier was using 70-80.

Thanks.

Try running it in safe mode (that's with the -safe-mode parameter), there should be shortcut in Start -> All Programs.

If it's resolved, then it is an extension causing it.

Last night, just before bed time, my wife informed me that she had seen, earlier in the day, a message indicating low disk space on our Windows 7 (Home Premium) Laptop. I took a look at the properties on C drive and it was down to about a half GB free space. This was on an 80 GB partition on which Windows is located. I ran Disk Cleanup and there is still only a bit less than 3 GB free space. I took a quick look at the properties of each folder at the root of C drive and found that the C:\Windows folder occupied about 48 GB. Isn't this way too much? Could this be related to Windows 10 to which we never upgraded? I'll look a little further this weekend to see if I can locate the bulk of the files, but I'm guessing I'm going to have to remove some Windows Updates or something, and if so, I'll likely need a little coaching on that.

Looking at the properties of my C:/Users/Pauline folder, it shows a size of 198Gb, yet opening the folder and viewing the size of each file and sub-folder, they add up to no more than 2Gb (I keep all the libraries and user data files on a separate drive).
Another user, myself, as C:\Users\Malcolm shows a size of 9Gb. Even this is much much larger than the sum of the sub folders, but I could live with that.
Going to folder options and showing hidden and protected files shows nothing in the way of very large files.
Any ideas welcome, as my C: drive is almost full and I don'y know why!!

Your best bet would be to download an application like SpaceSniffer which would give you a graphical view of where the consumed space is going.

It's real easy to use. Just open the zipfile you download, drag the application to your desktop, and launch it.

I see your specs as Windows 7. You may want to right-click on the application and select 'Run as Administrator' which might give you a better view into folders that might otherwise be restricted.

Hi guys,

My C drive is getting full and I have 5GB of files in the C:\Windows\Installer folder. I google'd around and found numerous articles/posts about running a command "msizap.exe G!" to properly clear out un-needed files.

Everything I've found on properly deleting files from this directory points back to a download that used to be here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

which now has a note: "This article previously contained a link to the Windows Installer Cleanup utility (MSICUU2.exe). If you were directed to this article to solve a problem installing a product other than Microsoft Office, please contact your software manufacturer for installation support on the product."

(thanks Microsoft... do I contact YOU then??)
Does anyone know the current correct procedure to clear out this folder? Or if this tool is still available somewhere? (and safe to use on Windows 7)

Hi there. Trying to free up some space on my measly 32GB SSD. So far i've disabled hibernate which has saved me four gigs already which is great. And now i'm looking at windirsat here and i see that the program 'doubletwist' is using up nearly 2gig in the appdata folder, even though i have the actual program installed to a different HDD. So basically i'm wondering if i could move those files out of the appdata folder, but in a way that doubletwist will still read them, as otherwise it's just going to save more files in there.

Hope all that makes sense. thanks!

Firefox Printing: Best way to print from ANY browser is to go to File then Print Preview. In Firefox, the preview allows you to choose not only portrait/landscape, but "shrink to fit" (the paper size), 30% to 200% or customize the percentage. After setting it the way you like it and you click on Print, be sure to change the number of pages to print (in case page 2 is just the bottom of a page and you don't need the info) and also if there are frames in the page, make sure to select "as laid out on the screen" so you don't get pages of useless frames printed in addition to what you actually need.

I have been doing this Print Preview thing for years, even with MSIE and Netscape. I hate to get page 2 with stuff on it I don't need! I waste enough paper!!

Hope this helps!

I use OE 6 on an XP Pro platform, and I need to move a large block of business emails from one OE folder to another. There are roughly 8,000 emails in this folder, and I need to move half to a new folder so they will compact properly.

Is there a FAST WAY to "Select" or highlight 4,000 out of 8,000 emails? It would take hours to hold down the Ctrl key and individually click all 4,000. Using Edit>Select All will not accomplish what I need. In a regular Windows folder, one can hold the Ctrl key and drag the cursor beside a long list of files to select them. Is there any way to do something similar inside an OE folder? Thanks.

Clicking on a large folder in Explorer can cause a slowly-moving green progress bar. In some cases this can take several minutes to complete.

A common cause is thumbnail caching of image and video files, resulting from having properties | customize | "optimize this folder for:" set to pictures, vs documents or General items.

The most likely solution: in Explorer, right click on folder, select properties, customize, under "optimize this folder for:", select either General items, or documents. Set check box "Also apply this template to all subfolders", then click apply.

The slow progress bar is apparently caused by Explorer scanning the folder and all subfolders to pre-render thumbnail images for image and video files. This happens if the "optimize this folder" setting is pictures or videos. This happens when merely clicking on the top-level folder.

If "optimize this folder" is set to documents or General, the thumnails are not rendered until you actually click on the folder or sub-folder containing those.

This was discussed in another thread on this forum, but it was full of speculative remedies, and the actual cause and remedy was not posted until the last thread (and one year after the thread was started): Accessing drives in Windows Explorer takes a long time

I have just received a running out of system disk memory notice on my Windows XP desktop computer. I was a bit surprised because I don't store much on the system disk, and as part of an exercise discussed on another thread here I had recently cleaned it up. I ran a scan with AVG free which came up with nothing and also Spybot S&D which cleaned out as many temp files as it could. After this I noticed one very large "hidden" folder remaining in the temp folder. It was called ~eu0000. In it was a single file called .eunf.
 
I have a dual boot so I could probably quite easily delete the folder and file, but before doing so I am curious as to whether it might have been caused by malware.
 

The composite image above shows the location of files on my very full system drive, as well as the results of the AVG scan.
 

 
This image shows the Windows temp folder (after the S&D cleanup) containing the offending large folder.
 
I should appreciate any thoughts anyone has on this.

I've got a little registry file that I run on all my new installs. One thing I been wanting to add to it is the ability to set the Folder View settings to "Large Icons" for "All Folders". The manual way to do this is...

- Open folder
- Right-Click > View > Large Icons
- Tools > Folder Options > View > Apply to Folders

So basically I'm looking for the registry key that I can change to set this via reg file. I've tried digging around in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU & Bags but it looks like those are for all folders. I'm looking for the one specific key/value that windows checks to determine what the folder view should be.

I recently discovered a folder on my C: drive simply titled Boot. (Filepath is C/Windows/Boot) It is taking up 27 GB of my 37 GB available space. It wasn't always that large, but must have increased steadily in size in the almost 2 years I've owned the computer. This Boot folder has 4sub-folders, ranging in size from 4 GB to 10 GB, totaling the 27 GB, but when I open any of those 4 sub-folders, there are only a few files of a few KB each. This is not a hidden folder, and I located what I believe is theactual boot folder needed to boot up my computer. I am not able to delete the C/Windows/Boot folder or any of the folders or files inside of it. (It says I need administrative privileges, but I’m the administrator and the only user of the computer.) Starting a few weeks ago, this folder is causing me to continually get “Low Disk Space” pop-up bubbles. The other night, I cleaned up some spaceon my computer, ended up with 750 MB of free space, went to bed, and woke up to find I was down to 42 MB of free space. I suspect that somehow, stuff is automatically getting dumped into C/Windows/Boot. Would love to be able to fix this so I’m not always dealing with the “Low Disk Space” message. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. (Laymans terms please, if possible.) Thanks in advance.

Hi all.
I have had lots of videos on my hdd for some time now building up a collection of car videos/movies. there is roughly 50gb+ of videos on one partition, 17+gb of these vids are car videos. When I go into my car video folder my HDD light comes on and loads like crazy, and then when I try to open one it takes for ages.

Also another problem which mite be related that I have is, Files go missing, eg. a 700mb car movie. the file is still there it shows all the bytes in properties and that is all correct, but when I try to open it says the file has been "compressed" or something along those terms. I know its not the codec, as I have just about every codec and these movies have worked previously. Especially after reformatting my files go missing from each of my back up partition drives. at the moment, 3.77gb of my fighting videos will not open :(

If anyone can help me, i would appreciate it. its really annoying not to be able to use the stuff on your HDD.

also since you are running winxp, try booting up with your winxp cd. of course and im sure you know this, you will need to change the boot order in the bios to cdrom as first boot device.

then when you boot up with the winxp cd, choose repair in the main console and it will take you to a command prompt screen. type out " chkdsk /r" without the "". also you will need a space between chkdsk and /r.

after it has finish, bootup to windows and see if this fixes your problem. also scan your computer for viruses, spyware, and malware. good luck

I did google a few times but couldn't find a way to solve. I'm using Windows 7 pro x64 (I think I upgraded from windows 7 home edition). I had same problem last week but while I was cleaning out some stuff windows was updated so I had to restart....and then there suddenly was 17 gbs free space. But ever since last update my HDD is down to attachments.

I'm on laptop with followings:

ASUS N61JQ-X1 16-Inch Laptop
1.6 GHz Intel Core i7-720QM Quad-Core Processor
4GB DDR3
320GB HDD
Windows 7 Home Premium

I'm using TuneUp Utilities 2011 (luckily the new guys who took over and messed up TuneUp stuff decided not to mess with anything before 2012 version) with Avast. As you guys can see from my attachments, Windows folder and System Volume Information alone are taking 50+ Gbs. I'm also wondering if I need all these crabs with amd64-microsoft-naturallanguages-blahblahblah? I have 84000 files of these craps. I do keep it hibernation which is about 3gbs. I moved system restore point to external HDD so no back up whatsoever in C drive, all games except few, which are located in D drive, are located in external HDD.

Is there any way I can possibly clean up from windows and system volume information without harming my computer? btw, I didn't do a single format ever since I bought this computer because it still runs smoothly. The only thing that's bothering me right now is C drive space, and I don't want to format because I'm going to grab a new machine for programming at th... Read more

Also check https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=166697.0

Avast sets System Restore disk usage % to 50.

You can try:
- go to control panel-> programs and features -> Avast -> change
- remove the component NG (down below).
- change % back to 10% (windows default) or whatever you like it
- restart
- check if % is what you set
- check restore points (seems this NG delete old restore points when run out of space)
- manually create a restore point if there are none
- open command prompt ->vssadmin list shadowstorage
- see how much space it takes.

You can also try uninstalling Grimefighter if above won't solve your problem.

I am backing up my Win 7 folder just before moving to WIN 8. The folder is 65G in size. I just copy and paste from my laptop hard drive to my external USB drive. I started the copying just before I went to bed last night. This morning I saw a pop up windows saying that 12 files cannot be copied because the path is too long. The option is "skip' or 'Cancel'. I took the skip option and the copy job completed. But it does not tell me the name of the 12 files that I skipped.
Now my problem is how do I found out which 12 files are missing in my backup.
I know that I can do the copy paste again and watch out for the error message. But it is a waste of time sitting in front of the screen. That was why I do it over night.
What is the best way to do this kind of work other than using some backup software.

I have been using Windows XP Version 2002 Service Pack 3 for a while with few problems, and run Norton 360 which I continually make sure is up to date with no warnings.

The problem that I have been having is that I have twice now found that my C: drive, which has 144 GB of hard drive space, keeps filling up when just a few months ago I checked it and it was less than half full. I downloaded a free program which shows me the folder sizes in Windows Explorer, and found that the cause of the drive filling up were these huge log files in my kids' "My Documents folders". There were many such files, but for example, there was one called CAGC0bd49d6c000a072e.log which was over 18 GB in size. I just simply delete them and empty my recycle bin, but they seem to keep reoccurring.

I am curious what they are, why they are so big, are they dangerous, and can they be prevented?

Thanks so much for any help!!

Hi,

For a while now my Windows folder has been taking up more space on my 60GB SSD than I think it should. The size breakdown goes like this:

C:/Windows - 28 GB

- winsxs - 11.65 GB
- System32 - 8.45 GB
- Assembly - 1.63 GB
- SysWOW64 - 1.30 GB
- Installer - 1.17 GB
- Microsoft.NET - 1.03 GB
- SoftwareDistribution - 0.85 GB

I do regular registry fixes and temp file cleans, and I do regular inspections on my drives to remove unnecessary files and programs. However, the large increase in my Windows folder which happened about 6 months ago is really bothering me.

Is there any way get rid of some excess files? Or is this just a case of Windows inaccurately showing the actual amount of free space due to hard links?

Help is appreciated, thanks

Hello,

I'm sharing a folder on a Windows XP computer with 15,000 sub-folders/files over a small network. This folder used to be hosted in Windows Server 2003 machine. But after I made the switch to XP, accessing the shared folder over the network takes over 1 minute for the files to list.

Does anyone know what might be causing this slow performance? And is it related to the XP operating system?

Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Okay I will do my best to try and explain this clearly.

I had one laptop hard drive crash/fail on me...so I purchased a new laptop and transferred all my files over via a window's backup and crash plan backup to make sure I got everything. Now the new laptop is having the same issue as the old laptop--obviously there is a corrupt file somewhere. The hard drive on the new laptop has not failed--yet--but 308GB of my 750 HDD has been sucked up by these temp files. I have attached a word doc with 2 screen shots--first showing the main window with all of these tmp files and the second with one file opened.

There 99 of these tmp files, with roughly 200,000 items in each taking up a lot of HDD space. I tried to delete one of these folders and the process took forever and it got hung up.

First, what are these folders and has anyone heard of this kind of issue.

Secondly, is there a way I can delete these files by by-passing the recycle bin since these things are so large. I thought I read somewhere I could use cmd to do this, but am not sure how.

I've used CCleaner and Malwarebytes and neither touched these files. As a matter of fact the Windows\Temp file never seems to get cleared out unless I manually delete what's in there. I was able to delete other files in that folder, just not these. I am getting very concerned for the life expectancy of my new HDD.

Also, one final note. I ran a chckdsk scan. It got hung up at 74% on Stage 1 and refused to budge from there... Read more

After a recent Windows Update, the fonts in all of my available web browsers are behaving strangely. In Chrome, I can't read any of the fonts on sites like Facebook (screen shots attached). When I try Facebook in Firefox or IE, it's gigantic and bold?as if I've zoomed in on the page (but, I haven't. I checked).

I read a thread where some were mentioning that this is a known issue, and I deleted/uninstalled some of the updates mentioned (and shut off automatic updates). It didn't make any difference.

I followed the instructions for posting. There were no error messages, however. I'm not sure what that means, but . . . no error messages. I am having to attach several things separately from the CBS folder because it is too large.

I need to split a folder containing several levels of subfolders into dvdr sizes for backup. I would like to retain not only the folder name but subfolders names.

Any one know of a util? RAR/ZIP is an option but I would really like viewable access to the files on any disc.

The folder I need to split is quite large 70GB.

Your talking about 16+ DVDs for that one file. The odds of one of them being bad is quite high.

Why not backup to an external hard drive instead?

Also, most burner software will do this for you automatically. I know Roxio will for sure. It will put as much as it can on each DVD then prompt you for a new one when that is done.

This is similar to a post I made several days ago that only got one response, but this time I've really narrowed it down.

My computer has a problem specifically with the combination of the NTFS file format and JPG Files. I used to have my drives formatted as FAT32. I never had a problem going into Windows Explorer and expanding a folder full of JPG files. Even a really large folder, like 15Gb, would open instantly.

However, I recently converted all my drives to NTFS. Now any folder with over about 2Gb of JPG Files in it takes for bloody ever to expand! The bigger the folder, the longer it takes. For example, a 5Gb folder will take about 30 seconds. A 20Gb folder will take upwards of 2 minutes. It drives me crazy!

It's as if something in my computer related to the NTFS format is trying to catalog or make thumbnails out of all the JPG's in a folder before it expands that folder. However, I can't really support the "thumbnail" theory because all of my folders are set to be viewed in the "details" mode. I don't use thumbnails, icons, or mini-icons.

Any and all suggestions are welcome because I've been struggling with this for several days now and tried every trick I know.

Thanks!
Michael

A:Large Folder Full of JPG Files Takes a Long Time to Expand

Here are two items that might shed some light on how to fix the problem:

1. Once a large jpeg folder has been expanded (oh so slowly) in Windows Explorer for the first time, it will open instantly any time I come back to it as long as I don't turn off the computer. But once I restart the computer, I have to wait a long time all over again for any of the large folders to expand.

2. I just discovered by accident that if I use the "search" function before expanding any of the folders in Windows Explorer, all of the folders will expand instantly no matter what they contain or how big they are.

This seems to be telling me that once the operating system has "touched" each folder and file one time, it remembers them better then next time (until I reboot). I wonder if all of the folder/file information is getting dumped into RAM the first time it's expanded or searched? It seems like maybe this is an NTFS related cache issue. I have 2Gb of RAM, so I've experimented with turning off the page file (virtual memory), but it doesn't seem to make any difference whether it's off or on. There must be some other file caching system in NTFS that I'm not familiar with.

A:Firefox, Yahoo: How to move bookmarks folder out of another folder?

Organize favorites is for IE. For Firefox you can restore your bookmarks by clicking on Bookmarks in the Menu Bar, click Show All Bookmarks, click the Import and Backup button, click Restore, click Choose File and then navigate to and select the .json file that was moved. Firefox will place a copy of the .json file (which are your bookmarks) back to the default folder. If you want, you can select a recent backup copy from the drop down list instead of choose file. That would save you a few clicks.

After restoring your bookmarks you can delete the accidentally moved file.

I have two icons that I want to assign to two folders. Unfortunately, something has gone wrong. Let me explain what happened step by step:

1. I have two folders: "A" and "B".
2. I have two icons (.ico files): "A" and "B".
3. I place icon "A" in folder "A" and icon "B" in folder "B".
4. I assign icon "A" to folder "A" and icon "B" to folder "B".
5. I notice that I've switched the icons around.
6. I move icon "A" to folder "B" and icon "B" to folder "A".
7. I rename icon "A" to "B" and icon "B" to "A".
8. I assign icon "A" to folder "A" and icon "B" to folder "B".
9. I notice that I still get to see the switched-around icons that I assigned in step 4 in the large and extra large icon views. In the smaller views the folder icons are now correct.

Here's what I did to try solve this problem:

- Follow two tutorials: Icon Cache - Rebuild and Default File Associations - Restore in Windows 8 (for .ico files).
- Remove the icon cache using the Disk Cleanup utility.
- Run "sfc /scannow" and "chkdsk /f /r".
- Run CCleaner to cleanup the registry and manually remove some registry keys that I pinpointed by looking for the registry keys that change when I assign an icon to a folder.

There have been no hardware changes, the hard drive has been tested as good (no bad sectors), her dual monitors are at a sane resolution, and I'm confident that the viruses has been removed.

For when you are told you don't have access to certain folders, there is something you can try.There is a registry hack which will allow you to take ownership. I've been using it for several years on various Windows 7 systems and now on Windows 10, although what I wanted to take ownership of has always simply said Access denied and I never was told to contact the administrator. Up to you whether to try it or not.Details and download are here http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-take-ownership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista/ (while it has Vista in the URL it does work with Windows 10)Download, unzip, then install.Take ownership will be added to the right click context menu. Right click on the folder/file name, choose Take Ownership.When chosen, the cmd will pop up and run. Depending on the folder it may take a while.There are a few folders that will not allow access after taking ownership.

If you use Windows Vista, click Start. Type the following command in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER:

I could just leave one there - it won't create another with the same name - but what the heck is happening? If I delete the New Folder, another appears when I start Firefox again.

Thanks
 

A:New Folder created by Firefox?

Go into your profile folder and delete downloads.rdf file.
Make sure that Firefox is closed, then go to:
C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\ApplicationData\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
\default.xxx
Application Data is a hidden file and you have to check to show hidden files and folders from Tools> Folder Options> View tab in windows explorer.
Or you can open it from run
Start> Run> type: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles and hit OK.
Then open the default folder and delete downloads.rdf

Heres the deal...

I got a new monitor, and after messing with some settings under desktop properties, and my graphic card properties my fonts are larger then usually. This is not just in IE, its on all apps, including AIM, etc.

8pt fonts are the size of 12pt fonts, and so on.

What did I do wrong, I design webpages, and this is really messing things up for me.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have read several of the topics of a similar nature and cannot find any that fit my situation. What is going on with me seems absolutely strange. First let me say:
I have checked my resolution and it is on 1024>768 pixels
I have Windows XP
I am on a Dell Demension E521
I have checked font sizes
I've done a restore
Well, basically, about everything in all the threads, I read, that have been suggested I think I've done.

I think my problem is a bit odd. Some - NOT ALL - of my web pages don't seem to fit my Firefox browser page. Now this includes - SOMETIMES - the scroll bar to the side cannot be seen or the items on the top right of the screen such as "login - my account - etcetra" But then is some of the web pages seem to be perfect. Sometimes I get a scroll bar at the bottom to scroll across, but sometimes when I need to see the top right there is no scroll at the bottom and I have to try to resize my screen horizontally. This all seems crazy to me.

This has just happened in the past 24 hours. Before that everything was perfect. Here are some of the things I have done. I downloaded a game that had wallpaper and I set it as my wallpaper. I think that is what did it. I am leaving uninstalling the game till the VERY LAST thing I do as I love it and have already racked up a bunch of points. hahaha I have also been playing with my tool bars on my Firefox browser page.

Hi, having installed xp again I see the icons on the desktop are bigger than they used to be and the start bar seems about 1/3 or so deeper than before.

Also, some web pages don't all fit on the page as they did before, some only display 2/3 across the page instead of being able to read them right across. Is there some change I can make in windows to fix this. Thanks for reading and in advance for any help offered.

Have a Dell Laptop with Windows 7.

The display is exaggerated and I have been unable to make it smaller. We have 2 usernames but I can only see the corner of one of them at the bottom of the screen. When I log on, I see a few icons but most don't even display. It is as if the background is 3-4 times bigger than it should be. The actual icons are not really distorted, just a little bigger than usual but as stated, very few show up. It is as if I need to roll the screen up to show them but I have no way to do that.

IF, I connect to an external monitor, everything on external looks perfect. While hooked up to external, I checked all the adapter/graphic settings, I have uninstalled the Video driver and reinstalled the latest one, I've even done a system restore and nothing helps.

I assumed it must be a bad video card but if that is bad, then why would the things look ok on an external monitor??

Any ideas or where to check next is appreciated. I an unsure if this is hardware or software issue. It is out of warranty.

The Laptop seems to have had some minor physical damage....ie....the the enthernet port prongs are loose. (kids deny knowing anything about it, of course). I am listing this in case this helps with the solution.

Any thoughts if a windows reinstall might solve it all?

Thank you in advance
 

A:Solved: Display is large and can't fix it

Was the computer dropped?if so its possible that something got knocked loose inside and is causing the monitor and ethernet problems.if theres damage noted on the outside chances are theres damage on the inside as well.that kind of damage is a hardware issue such as the harddrive, motherboard,ram, the monitor lights, etc not a software issue and a reinstall wont solve it if thats the case.

I hooked my old windows XP computer up to the TV. The print was too small to read from the couch, so I increased the dpi to 300. Unfortunately, after I rebooted the computer, the print was too large to fit on the monitor, and I can't see the accounts to click on them, so I can't get back in to change it back. The only thing that shows is the Turn Off The Computer button. What can I do to log in again?

I Recently installed XP on one of two SATA drives.
Windows resides on a 128GB partition of that drive, a new 750GB WD that it formatted upon install, and prior to the addition of SP2 and SP3.

Today the OS see's the entirety of the secondary drive SATA 1, a 320GB drive, added as E and F @149.5GB and 148.4GB respectively, after the addition of SP3. I'm not sure where the remaining 20GB disappeared to, but both partitians were added when nearly full, and were always seen as such.

The remaining 570.65 GBs comprising the unused balance of the original install drive (SATA 0) however, remains listed only as unallocated space. This, even after SP3?
What needs to be done in order to access this unallocated bulk of SATA 0?

Thanks for any illumination cast.

I recently attended a comedy show. After the show I purchased a thumb drive containg 3 hours of the performances. The size of the single resulting MP3 file is about 113,344 KB. As such I have no way to play the performance on my portable CD player nor listen to it in my car (my car player does not have MP3 capabilities, plus the file is too large to fit onto a CD-R and way too large to convert to a playable file)
There were 2 warm-up acts prior to the main performer.
What can I do with this file to make it portable? Can I remove the warm-up acts and have a smaller file that will fit onto a single CD-R? How?
 

A:Solved: Shrinking a Large MP3

If your portable CD player supports Mp3 CD's, then it would be a simple matter of burning the file to a data CD and it would easily fit on one.

But if you have to burn Audio CD's then it's measured by running time. You can fit 80 Min. on one CD, so you'd need 3 CD's to burn the whole 3 hrs. If you edit some of it out to get it under 2 hrs and 40 min. then you could get it on two CD's.

You could get mp3DirectCut to edit the file. I've edited some fairly big files with mp3DirectCut, but nothing close to that size so it may or may not be able to handle a file that large.

After you edit the file you can use almost any burning software to burn the Audio CD(s). The burning program will convert the Mp3 file to the Audio CD format.

A:Accessing Firefox temp folder

Normally you don't save files from the Temp folder.
Actually it's not even advised to do ie corruptions so forth

You are best to save the data (movie, whatever) directly from the site you found it on
Now there are many programs to do this with (a lot are not free, depending upon what site etc)

The temp folder can be limited in size, and you are best to clear it regularly

I'm trying to locate the Firefox cache folder on Vista. The folder naming structure for it differs from what it is on XP.

Here is the path of the folder I'm talking about:

C:\Documents and Settings\Bill\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\rlzudt8g.default\Cache

I believe the folder one down under Profiles ("rlzudt8g.default") may have a different name from machine to machine (a diff combination of letters/numbers), but I can't find any part of this path in Vista.

Any help appreciated.

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.

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,

Before she upgraded to Firefox 3.0, I had configured a folder in my wife's Bookmarks file, where she could save bookmarks that I was able to share through Shared Documents across our Wi-Fi network.

I had read that it was possible to override the sqlite process that Firefox 3.0 uses and effectively still use the old bookmarks.html configuration (http://lifehacker.com/399893/make-firefox-3s-bookmarks-available-to-launchy-and-quicksilver. ) I successfully modified the configurations settings on my wife's Firefox as the reference article described, but it didn't seem to really modify how Firefox manages the bookmarks file. Any other suggestions on what else I might want to try?
 

A:Shared Bookmarks Folder w/Firefox 3.0

There is a great add on to share bookmarks. It's called Foxmarks. here is a quote from there site explaining it better than i could "Foxmarks is a free add-on for your Firefox browser that syncs and backs up your bookmarks and passwords across multiple computers and more."

This is probably a good alternative to what you're trying to achieve.

A:[SOLVED] How to open w7 in large screen

Hi alank950,

All these settings are automatically stored by Windows to remember its previous size. What you should do is:

1. Open the application you wish to have maximized.
2. Maximize the window, or choose the size you want.
3. Close the application correctly (File > Exit).

If the auto-maximize button doesn't do it, try manually setting the size and then closing it properly.
