Using Firefox for months with full page screen on my laptop when suddenly it changed to a split screen while I was on an AARP game site and it stays that way now - making it useless by cutting off pertinent info when I search for other sites. The left side stays on ther AARP site but the right moves to a new site as I browse.

Trying to view & check Add-ons using Add-ons Manger as follows: Tools - Add-ons which results in new tab opening, but all that is displayed is the Loading Icon with the timer animation. I have now left it running for over 45 minutes prior to writing this information. The problem was also evident after the upgrade from Version 4 to Version 5 earlier this year.

I have set Firefox as my default browser with Google as my default search engine. I have eliminated Bing from the drop-down list in Firefox of alternate engines. However, when I am browsing and open a new tab, the Bing search window page appears. Google is still in the search line at the top of the page.

I want Google to be the search engine that appears, not Bing.

I very often get this:

'The connection was interrupted Connection to the server was restored during the download page. The site may temporarily be down or busy. Please try again in a moment. If you can not open any page at all, check your computer network connection. If your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to connect to the web.'

And at the bottom there´s a button says, try again. Sometimes I've to try several times before the page is loaded. I haven't have had this problems before and it never come up in IE. I have broadband with 100Mb, maybe it's too fast? :-)

I have recently moved from PC to Mac. I can't figure out on the Mac how to edit bookmarks. In other words, I have a URL I use to log into applications for work, but depending on the available servers, that first URL gets rerouted to a different URL by the time I'm accessing the application. Only at that time am I able to save the bookmark, so it's saving the wrong URL to launch the next time. I'd like to edit the bookmark so I can put the right URL in the bookmark. How do I do that? Also - is Firefox synch available between PC and Mac? I don't see sync as an option on my PC's firefox.

We recently uninstalled a proxy website's filtering program. Now, Firefox will not open, but instead, gives the error message, "Failed to read the configuration file. Please contact your system administrator." I've reinstalled it with a reboot between uninstalling and reinstalling. That didn't work. I installed a previous version, that didn't work. Finally, I reinstalled it without keeping any of my settings and bookmarks and it still doesn't work. I've checked my firewall and it's in the exceptions. Deleted that and replaced it. All to no avail. Still scratching my head.

I have a USB CAC Card reader and ActivClient 6.2 software. However, I am unable to add my cac card reader as a module to Firefox despite me being able to do so in 4.

I'm currently on FF6, just upgrading from 5 as I thought 6 might of fix the problem. (Obviously I'm wrong.)

I've tried looking up information about the "Unable to add module" error, but most of the search results bring up solutions for open source software on various Unix OSes.

The most relevant information that deals with Windows and ActivClient is around 11 months old and I've already tried to follow that, only to see it not work either.

Help? I kinda want/need to access websites.

Arabic text characters are all connected one to another in a word, but FireFox displays the letters right, except they are disconnected and each letter is on its own, making it very difficult if not impossible to read.

What I used to do in the past is, pages that contain Arabic Text for me such as Facebook, I used to install IETAB2 and set facebook to always open with IETAB and then the text would display correctly.

The strange thing is, if you use IE, it would display the same garbage isolated Arabic letters, but the IETAB with IE7 emulation works like a charm.

With that said, recently, FF stopped displaying arabic text correctly even with IETAB2

But Google Chrome always works like a charm without the need for anything.

I have tried changing the encoding on the site but that doesn't help

Can anyone suggest anything please?

Google Chrome, Correct display of Arabic Text:

FireFox with IETAB or without, same result:

http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/8855/firefoxlh.png


Anything other than UTF-8 will just display as jibberish.

But the problem with UTF-8 is that the Arabic letters are not linked one to the other, each one is seperated, makeing it very difficult to read.

What's even weirder is, I checked with Chrome, which displays Arabic Text just fine, and it is also using the UTF-8 encoding but it works!? Please help as I don't want to use Chrome :(

To understand better i'll show in images:

1) Change these bars

2) Change navigation toolbar

  • Navigation toolbar is in menu bar, because menus can't be dragged

3) And it should look something like this

  • Is it possible?

Solution would be moving menu bar to right side of the orange mozilla icon and under it would be a tab strip, but i don't know how!

P.s OK i got that by just unclicking menu bar and clicking tabs on top, but menu bar only shows while Alt pressed - how to freeze Alt function?
