    Firefox showing incorrect default home page on hosted domain --


    Hi folks

    I had a really annoying problem on Firefox but eventually easily solved -- on a hosting server I was getting the Hosting services "Parking" or sales page showing whenever I typed my domains default page instead of (currently) just a blank page -- the Hosting DNS's were all working correctly and the SOA / ttl records set just fine so no problem with Host DNS's.

    On 5 other computers in the network the Blank default page was showing correctly but on the computer where I'm working to create content it always showed the wretched "Parking page" unless I followed the domain name with /index.html

    The stupid reason was that firefox reserves around 350mb as cache by default for its web content -- this needs to be cleared -- not sure why it's not automatically clearing after the time expiration but it was a really irritating problem and so simply fixed once you knew where to look -- nothing actually to do with clearing DNS caches etc

    You need to go into Settings --->preferences--->advanced and manually clear cached web content. You need to do this if you are making changes to the web content on your site frequently.

    I know I should test the web on a local computer first but I wanted to ensure all the network pieces were working correctly so later if something wasn't working I'd know it was web content rather than the Network infrastructure.

    Simple once you know - but it was annoying while it lasted since Edge / IE11 and Chrome all showed correct home page -- but firefox kept coming up with the initial hosting servers "parking" or "sales" page instead of mine !!!!

    Anyway hoping this little tidbit will help other people experiencing this type of problem.

    Cheers

    Firefox opens on boot up to MSN Home Page. Browser shouldn't start on boot up - need help.

    Since about a week ago my computer has been opening msn.com on Firefox whenever I boot it up. Before this started happening Firefox did not start on boot up.

    I am running Windows 10 Home.

    FireFox is my default browser, with Google as my Home Page, and set to 'Show my Home Page' on startup.

    I have found 2 Startup directories. One is empty, the other has only 'Adobe Gamma Loader'

    Startup tab in Task Manager has a list of 18 items, none of which look relevant to me.

  3. proxy problem in windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Forums.

    Are you on a domain network?

    You cannot connect to Internet using proxy server on Microsoft Edge. Check if the issue persists when you use Internet Explorer.

    Since this is an issue with Firefox, I would suggest that you contact Mozilla for help on this one.

    Add-ons for Firefox : Enter cache in the search box, perhaps one of the extensions will help you.
