Using master password without prompt popup in Firefox

I’m using Firefox and I have set a master password to protect my saved passwords. From there, each time I visit a website where I have a password saved, a box appears and is asking for my master password : Firefox Password Prompt Is there a setting or anything other I can apply in Firefox to prevent this pop-up behaviour, while still keeping a master password as protection ? Thank you for any help.

Unable to delete email messages in Outlook 2003

I am running Outlook 2003 and Windows 10 on a Lenovo laptop. My email client profile had to be changed from pop3 to imap, when the outgoing email sever failed to recognize my username and password. When the change took place, a folder, similar to Personal Folders, was automatically created in Outlook for all my imap activity. All incoming email now goes to the new imap Inbox and is also stored under my account on…

Running something on Windows startup with elevated privilege

To launch a .exe on Windows startup with administrator privileges, I know that: the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun method is not good, because it will always display a prompt on each startup “Are you sure to …”, the TaskScheduler method works, but: what about adding a shortcut to the .exe in Startup folder of the Start menu? I’ve tried it, but it silently fails – the .exe doesn’t start. I also tried to edit the properties of the…

Most efficient way to kill a computer

During a visit to a friend’s house, he showed me an old Windows 10 desktop computer of his. Then, he told me, “You’re really good with tech stuff right? I bet you can’t permanently crash my computer in 5 mins.” I thought formatting the C drive would be the best bet, so I tried format c: /x /y in the command prompt. Didn’t work. I then proceeded to try the same in Diskpart and Disk…

Cisco Anyconnect on Mac can’t resolve VPN domain name behind proxy

I try to use Cisco Anyconnect client 4.4.03034 on Mac which is behind proxy. I enter VPN domain name, press “Connect” button and get the following error: The vpn connection failed due to unsuccessful domain name resolution.

Go back to ‘new tab’ page in Firefox

I would like to have FF allow me to go back to the New Tab page, just as it allows going back to any other previous page. This is a much faster workflow for how I work with it. I know this is a long outstanding known bug but I was wondering whether there really isn’t a way around it, be it via an extension or developer tools or otherwise, or some other way I…

Sending raw TCP data from Linux to Windows server

I am planning to forward raw TCP data that is received on the local port of a Linux machine to a Windows server. The forwarding is done by a Java application running on a Linux machine. A .NET application running on the Windows server receives this raw data and processes it. I have read somewhere that the handling of LF and CR is different in Linux and Windows. Have someone encountered any problems in transferring…
