This is not a specific question, as it is more of a general frustration with Firefox. I notice Firefox is much faster if I disable many add-ons I have installed over the years. It seems like Firefox gets a bad wrap because some add-ons slow down Firefox. Aren't there benchmarking tools available to show before and after results of using an add-on? I am using 5 out 19 add-ons at the moment and performance is a lot faster. All this time though, I just thought Firefox sucked when disabling add-ons leads me to believe that the culprit for the slow performance is due to an add-on.

Anyway, I think if Mozilla wants to protect their reputation more, the benchmarking tools should be a tool a browser user can interact with.

I would like to change the header and footer printing indents to match the indents for the page when I print it, for example 1/2 inch (12 mm) from the left edge and the right edge. While it's possible to set the page indent, it doesn't seem possible to adjust the header/footer indents.

Why would I like to make this change? The reason is that my laser printer seems to accumulate toner in this space, creating vertical streaks at the left and right edge of the paper.

This seems to be true of versions of Firefox 3.x to 5.x on Windows 2000, XP and Ubuntu Linux (10.1)

Other document programs that keep all text at least 1/4-inch (6 mm) from the left and right edges do not create this problem. Is there a work-around or hand-coding I can enter into the "custom" field of the header or footer?

Thanks

Recently FireFox often has been causing 100% CPU usage and locks up until it finishes the process (various ones). Clearing cookies/cache didn't help. Any ideas?

Windows 2000 SP4, 1g RAM, Firefox 9.0.1 We keep IE6 and Firefox open simultaneously for 2 different mail accounts. Firefox was always much faster even with 3 or 4 tabs open, but for the past couple of weeks when trying to update a screen the CPU suddenly goes to 100% usage and of course nothing will move until the particular process is finished. Closing one or more tabs does not help. If I close Firefox completely with Task Manager CPU usage goes back down to nil. After restarting Firefox CPU usage may or may not go back up depending upon whether it tries to continue the previous task that was locking it up. It did not do this with Firefox 3.6 but then again it didn't happen immediately after updating to 9.0.1 either.

Details: win2k Pro on a laptop. Stable for YEARS. Firefox 11 installed. Everything WORKS and works WELL.

Now, I get an annoying upgrade message about win2kpro NOT being supported and urging me to upgrade. So far, so good. I would expect this thing happening, but HOW do I turn it OFF when I can NOT change my computer configuration?

I do not have the financial resources to upgrade the OS. I will stick with the stable win2kpro that I have, thank you, AND I will stick with Firefox 11 since it seems to also be as stable as my 10 year old win2kpro on my laptop.

BUT! I have this message that pops up EVERY TIME I start Firefox, telling me what I have is NO LONGER supported, urging me to upgrade my OS and Firefox! OK! So I GET IT! But I can't upgrade because I simply do not have the MONEY!

I turned off the automatic updates option. I deleted the XML files as suggested by another as a fix. NOTHING HAS WORKED. I STILL get this damn message!

HOW DO I STOP THIS DAMN ANNOYING REMINDER TO UPGRADE THAT I CAN NOT AFFORD TO DO?

Ctrl-F brings up the Find Bar which search all text on the page.

The "/" brings up the Quick Find bar which also seems to search all the text on the page.

What is the difference between Find and Quick Find? I can see that Quick Find is missing the additional options that Find has but is the search itself exactly the same? I can see how Quick Find (links-only) is different but can't see why FF has both.

Searching for this finds many pages from people on how to disable Quick Find, how to point it at Find, etc. Apparently Quick Find was introduced back in FF ver 2 upsetting many people that use the ' key on some of their sites. I could not find any pages that explained the difference between the two finders.

On knowing the issue was related to login.yahoo.com certificate, I checked on for firefox browser. It says that it is valid till 1/4/2011 only. Does that mean I won't be able to use yahoo once it expires? dbengali

Using V12 Firefox with MS windows 2000 Pro Unknown to me is Firefox makes as many as 2 .TMF ( not .tmP) per minute and only a check of hard drive found over 15,000 .TMFs in a temp directory sucking up over 900 MEG bytes of hard drive !

Shutdown of laptop, reboot, etc or using MS to clean unused files, nothing deletes these .TMP other then me now going to temp directory and deleting them

With my business I am on internet like 14 hours day, 7 days a week so Firefox is used most of the time

I have found no setting in Firefox including cache settings but know no other program is doing this and monitoring temp directory while using Firefox I can see these .TMF files being made/saved about 22 to 70 K bytes in length.

Also why is Firefox not supporting MS windows 200 pro for newer version to V 12 I have now to be installed ?
