Not exactly a Firefox issue, but if it works fine on Windows it should work on Gnome too... How can I merge title bar and tabs bar? In Windows if we hide the menu bar Firefox puts in a single line Firefox button, tabs and minimize, maximize and close buttons. But in Gnome it keeps the separated title bar (with the minimize, maximize and close buttons). Is there any way to really implement it on Gnome Desktop?

Right-clicking on links and selecting "Open link in new tab" always works as described, but command-clicking on links only sometimes opens them in new tabs. I am guessing that it is Javascript related, but why can the contextual menu work, and not the click?

Tonight I opened Firefox and everything on the screen was huge. I used ctrl+arrow keys to make everything smaller, but any time I would click on something and then go back to the previous page the resolution would be large again. Why is this happening, and what can I do to stop it from continuing?

what is process for Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.facebook.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I don't have a question, just a suggestion for others with a similar issue.

I recently upgraded to FF 17.0. I also tried a couple of new extensions because my old ones were incompatible. It seems that one of the new extensions installed Ask.com on any New Tabs that I opened. I searched for a fix and could only come up with

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/837470

I started FF in Safe Mode with everything disabled and it still happened. I removed all the new extensions and it still happened.

Finally, I figured something out that DID work. If you are having a similar problem, try this:

Type "about:config" into the address bar.

Type "ask" into the Search bar.

Find the following entry:

browser.newtab.url

Double-click on it and simply delete the value. Now all of your New Tabs will open to a blank page. Or, if you want a different page, type in the address (e.g. google.com, bing,com, etc.).

Problem solved.

I recently ran into this problem after cleaning up my Windows 7 notification icons, which, required the deletion of 2 Registry Keys: IconStreams and PastIconsStream. This did a great job of clearing out the old icons, however, I ended up with this side effect!

I found this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/943001, which, gave me several remedies, including: create a new Boolean preference name: 'browser.shell.shortcutFavicons and set the value to false. None of the remedies worked.

  1. My solution was a simple one, I backed up my Firefox Profile, uninstalled Firefox, then, reinstalled Firefox, transferred my original profile back back and the problem was solved!

To make the re-installation easier, it's a good idea to download a new copy of the Firefox Installer, that, way you don't start another browser and searching for it, you can just simply run the installer. Also, don't forget to make a copy of your current Firefox Profile.

I hope, that, this helps and I hope, that, I haven't put this in the wrong place!

I had the same problem described by a user called "barbnlon". I noticed it was not completely solved but a workaround was suggested. Anyway, I think I found the simple solution and thought that it might be useful to others!

The solution can be found if you simply click on the blue "T" at the top left corner of the bar. They're kind enough to let you know how to uninstall the program if you do not wish to have it. It is simply called "Outbox". Remove "outbox" (Control panel -> Add/Remove Programs, or just Programs, depending on Windows version). Reboot your PC and the bar disappears.

Hope this helps.

I want to be able to expand web page pictures to full screen without one of two annoying pop-up mini wdws always popping up.

-One is the instructional: "______ is now fullscreen; press esc. at any time to exit fullscreen"
-The second is along the same lines, something about: "allow ________ to be fullscreen?" with a checkbox to 'allow'

I KNOW how to exit full screen. I don't want to be reminded for a full second every single time I expand a picture. As far as allowing a website to expand a picture to full screen, if I click full screen, obviously I want to engage full screen on that web page. In fact, why would firefox even give the option to disallow the function? It seems like shooting a spider with a shotgun---when there's no spider in the first place.

I belong to Hallmark for the purpose of sending ecards. They recently changed their format - completely. It won't let me send any cards. I sent them an email about this, and they said I had to empty my caches first to see if that helped. Well, I used to be able to find the cache, but I can't anymore, unless history= cache. But I'm not going to go dumping anything until I know what it is. Please help this techno-peasant.

Where do large FLV video files get stored on Mac OS, Mountain Lion?

Firefox stores small FLV video files (less than 10 minute long) under /Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<user's profilename>/Cache, but it does not store larger ones (longer than 10 minutes). I also increased the cache maximum limit to 350 MB and I still have the same problem.

Where those larger FLV video file go?

Please help!
