This happens on every image on a page. Why would anyone in their right mind want to tweet, google+, gmail and facebook every single picture on every web page they visit throughout any given day? The tile that comes up obscures information that I actually want to read. That is why I am on the web page in the first place and not to tell everyone about a site that is now rendered unreadable by some thoughtless and banal piece of programming. If it cannot be switched off I will be dumping Firefox.

first i removed header and footer, and set the all margins to be found in about:config(Linux) or in Dialog (Windows) to zero.

On all html documents i get a little gap on the top of the first page, but not on the second one. The gap appears on paper print, on file print(PDF) and on preview - under firefox (17.0) for Linux and Windows. IE 8 on windows has other abnormalities, but equal top margin on all printed pages.

How can i remove this difference top margins between first page and the following once in firefox ?

In MSIE, a registry setting can ensure that bookmarks and folders always remain in alphabetical order. In Firefox, I have to repeatedly sort each of my bookmark folders independently to maintain order. The add-on, "SortPlaces", which was recommended in answer to similar questions, has been "removed by its author". To add insult to injury, after getting up my courage to try out Firefox Sync after years of good results using XMarks, I found the order of my bookmarks completely bollixed on the two PCs which I attempted to sync using Firefox sync. The bookmark folders, which were previously in a single alphabetized list, are now split into two lists without any apparent rhyme or reason. I have not foun any way to combine them again, short of wiping them out completely and restoring them from XMarks. How can I: 1. Repair the schism in my bookmark list? 2. Ensure that my bookmarks remain alphabetized, without repeated manual intervention?

I used to create desktop shortcuts as described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/create-desktop-shortcut-website?esab=a&as=aaq

I know use Firefox 17.0.1 on 64-bit Linux. I notice that the above operation does not create a shortcut but instead creates a copy of the web page on my desktop.

Do I do something wrong? Did I turn on an option accidentally?

Thanks in advance for your help Daniel

Hi, My Firefox plug-in check is telling me that there is an update for Java, but when I visit the link it's still taking me to the old update (the Java 7 update 9). Also, according to the Java test page, Java 7u9 is still showing that it's the latest...it says I have the recommended version.

Is there an newer update somewhere?

Thanks.

(sorry for long link) i have tried disabling some of my add-ons to no avail. i have scanned my computer with Avast! and malware bytes. i haven't been on any dodgy sites when it happens. i have just realised, but i think it might be every time i click a link, a new page with an ad will open. it only happens on any link once.

any ideas?

What can I do if all HTML links refresh site instead of redirecting properly (FF only, HTML 1.0 Strict valid, no plugins) just after using autocompleted url?

I was testing a XHTML 1.0 Strict valid website on my localhost. It had URL "http://localhost/visaita/tictactoe/Web/index.php?item_id=8&game_password=73|55fc84c0c432ad625a901caaa13108aa&chat_code=74|50b3b60c8be203.98819772#.ULO2EnC23XQ". If I click in URL field between 8 and ?. Then pres shift + end and delete the rest of URL, I get a drop down of suggestions. Then I press arrow left in my keyboard - suggestions dissappear. I press enter and my URL is immediately reset to initial one (with all arguments) even though I wanted to delete them. Server receives all the arguments, so this is not the case of a back-end redirection (tested).

The most interesting effect is that after such refresh ALL HTML LINKS stop working. They refresh page instead of redirecting. Even if I click on a link redirecting to another domain, page still gets refreshed and not redirected. I see it as an obvious and serious bug which happens in very special conditions.

All FF plugins and add-ons disabled. Tested in safe mode as well. One interesting fact is that this page is opened by a redirect from another page (JavaScript performs redirect), but the page where error happens does not contain any JavaScript redirection code. Error console is also empty.

During these redirects FireBug (when enabled) displays interesting stuff. It shows that request without arguments is pending infinitely while immediately after it another request is launched with all unwanted arguments.

Another interesting fact is that page is using late polling AJAX technique (not sure whether it has any impact).

It seems that it is some caching bug.

I have a problem seeing the screen as the font/characters in firefox are to small. In IE or windows it has the option to increase the view from 100% to 125%, etc. Is there a similar feature n firefox? The fullscreen does not help and I have recently tried it only to find I have to close the whole browser, as there is no way to minimize it. I have tried right click to zoom but this is also not available with firefox that I have seen.

I can not retrieve a five point solid star from the " character map ". I have tried all the fonts that have a star ,and, when I paste, I get a different character ,but, no star. I tried the system of getting characters using the " ALT KEY " and number pad on the right side of the keyboard, but, here again, when I type in the code for a solid star ( 9733 in the list I retrieved from the internet ) a different character pops up. I have Vista, and use Firefox. I tried using " IE " but still have the same problem. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thank you
