1. Firefox Basics > 7. Stop Once-Only Dialogs Safely

Stop Once-Only Dialogs Safely

Don’t like to be bothered? Here’s how to shut Firefox up and how to deal with the consequences.

After first installation, Firefox intermittently throws up a series of dialog boxes. For a first-time user, these can be confusing. Here’s how to shut them up if you don’t like them. Also here’s how to make them appear, so that you can shut them up if you’re installing Firefox for someone else.

Figure 1-11 shows the first dialog presented.

By the time you read this, Firefox will be able to import from a number of other browsers, so the Import Wizard might look a bit more detailed than it is shown here, especially if it detects other browsers on your computer. You can cancel this import process safely. It can be repeated at any time after installation from the FileImport... menu.
