My Imac is version 10.8 snow leopard. I tried to import bookmarks from Safari to Firefox but import data from another browser is greyed out, even though private browsing is turned off. I also created an .html file for my bookmarks no problem but when I import this file to firefox, no bookmarks appear. I checked the file in a plain text editor for any folded files but none existed. Can anyone help me solve this problem. It seems the easiest solution would be if the IMPORT DATA FROM ANOTHER BROWSER button was functional. thanks.

When scaling in page setup, 1st page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly/too large for the paper, parts of the text missing

When trying to print in Firefox, and when scaling the page size in page setup, the first page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly and are too large for the paper, with parts of the text are being cut off at the top and right. This is not fixed by checking or un-checking the "ignore scaling/shrink to fit page width" in the print window, or by changing the scaling%.

I am running Firefox 15.0.1, on Mac OS 10.5.8.

The same problem happens in the print preview and if I save the print as a .pdf

I have tried all the fixes in the how to's and others in various forums with no improvement.

This happens every time I try to print a document scaled up or down only in Firefox.

After trying out a little utility, I got stuck with the Babylon toolbar and home page.... Yes... I didn't spot the little checkpoint to disable installation... Without any problems, I managed to remove all that... But since then, I can't get my home page to stay set to about:blank.... it keeps starting with the Google search page. I did manage to link the homepage button to about:blank, but when I add a new page (by clicking the + next to the most right tab) I keep getting the Google search page... Thanks in advance. Lody J.

Firefox 15.0.1 "Remember my browsing and downloads history" In previous versions they were separate check boxes.

I tried "about:config" : "browser.download.panel.removeFinishedDownloads" changed to "true" but it didn't seem to do anything. Not sure if that is the correct variable too.

I right clicked on a web page and apparently activated a "node". Now, I have dimming and a long bar of "inspector options" above status bar. How to delete?

There is a long line of displays at the bottom of the Firefox screen, all starting with "div#" or "iframe.rr" or "html" or "body" --- at the far right is a rectangular box with the word "Style" and an "x" right beside it. The x will not close this bar even though it says "close inspector."

On the far left of the bothersome string is a gear/sprocket icon that is for "inspector options" which, when clicked, offers "dim the node" or "show node info." I don't want a "node" or even know what it is. I would just like this display bar along the bottom of the Firefox page to be gone.

I have tried every option under all of the "Help" articles in order to find my missing bookmarks ('Favorites') from IE, and nothing has worked. When I tried "Import from IE", it loaded a list of Favorites at least a year old. I cannot find the current bookmarks which are stored in the folder "From Internet Explorer". When I click on the bookmarks icon (star) in the upper right corner, the menu no longer displays the option to select "From Internet Explorer". The only thing I have not tried is the "Restore" option available in the library window under "Import and Backup": I don't know which of the files listed would be the correct one, and the instructions caution that whatever file(s) are chosen now will replace the earlier file. I don't want to accidentally erase all of my stored bookmarks (hundreds of them), and be left with only the bookmarks that I've saved just recently - I also don't want to end up with an outdated (old) set of Favorites.

my PC keeps trying to download files from chrome. I am told by Trend Micro that this is a Mozilla download and they do not know how to stop it.

Basically what I want is for these download attempts to stop as I do not want Chrome on my PC.

So can you say how to stop it or give me a batch file that will stop it.

It happens just about every three or four minutes and I am frankly fed up with it so if you want me to keep using Firefox and Thunderbird please tell me how to stop it.

I have a website for my bowling club. When I update for instanse a result file it does not appear correct - it is the former file that is shown. It does not help to restart Firefox or delete the file (yes if I try to open it then I got the usual error message) BUT if I upload the actual file again and then try to open it Firefox still shows the old one. This is no problem in MSIE or Chrome. ??? from ganitaa
