It seems that after installing firefox 4 I cannot use my MacBook Pro touchpad (trackpad) for zooming in or out the page anymore, as I used to do in the previous versions of Firefox.

Many people are used to use their touchpads for zooming, instead of clicking the Cmnd +/-, and its one of the basic touchpad functions that we have on our MacBooks, and many apps are using it.

I have been a happy Firefox user for years and have regularly installed the recommended upgrades on all 3 computers I use daily. My home desktop is a Power Mac G5, model 11,2, with a PowerPC G5 (1.1) processor with 2.3GHz speed. While this computer is old, gosh the screen is beautiful and there are no issues with the tasks I use it for. I'd like to continue using Firefox as my default browser. Is there an updated version I can use?

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.

I want a new window to open with the thumbnails of my preferred websites.

I have set up the "Home Page" option with "about:newtab" and i'm pretty sure it was working until a few days ago.

I already searched the knowledge base and checked the parameters in "about:config" suggested in other topics (http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/931476) and they are properly set.

My machine I have an old 2008 macbook with 2 system boots: Leopard and Snow Leopard. I'm pretty sure this setting was working fine on both and now it isn't on the Leopard boot. I know this OS isn't supported anymore, but I set the "about:newtab" AFTER the last update which notified the system wasn't supported anymore.

Since then, i haven't installed any extension or theme: the browser is a stock install with the last update possible.

I just upgraded from Fx3.6.8 to Fx16.0.2, and now my javascript bookmarklets are not working. There doesn't appear to be any way to resize a window quickly by clicking a bookmark containing a javascript function, such as:

javascript:(function(){window.moveTo(22,33);window.resizeTo(560,(screen.availHeight-35));})();

I've noticed the same problem in Fx22 on a different computer. So apparently, even with javascript enabled, these functions don't work from the URL line.

Is there any way to resize a window, other than by manually dragging a corner?

Hi,

Thanks for any help in advance.


Of course the new Firefox is messing with me...But I have one specific question...

Facts...

1) I own a iMac...17 inch...So I can open lots and lots of tabs at once.

2) I just rebooted my computer back to brand new.

3) I'm working on finding all my old stuff, but can't seem to find two specific items...

In the previous version, and before I rebooted, I had about 40 tabs (Including Cluster Tabs) opening-up whenever I started a browse session. But now, I can't seem to control the size of the tabs, so they get less narrow as I had them?

I've already downloaded "Vulcanize Tabs" but that's no help...I think it was a specific theme that allowed me to do this, but many of the themes don't work with this new version of Firefox.

I suspect I'll just have to wait until the themes are updated? Or, do you have a better idea?


Also...

I want to get rid of the "X" on each tab and only have a close tab button on the far right of my tabs navigation bar.


Any help?

If so, thanks again!

Ps...Is there a way to reverse my downloading of this newest Firefox version and go back to the previous one until this new one gets many of the bugs worked-out?

I have a series of questions related to the OS dictionary and about looking up the definitions of words and spelling. With Safari I could use Command+: to turn on Spell checker and loved using it. I have spell checker turned on with FireFox via Preferences/Advanced/Check my spelling as I type and like the other method better. I suppose I could get used to the method FireFox uses, but don't understand why cmd: can't work too. I even went in through system preferences and added it as a keyboard shortcut for Firefox without success. I dont' see anything in the pulldown menu's using that key-combination so what's blocking it? Another important feature that doesn't work is I can't click on a word to look up the definition. That's an important feature and I use it often. Because of these I stopped using firefox and continue using Safari even though Safari doesn't work for a main site I visit. Safari is also generally slow and locks up constantly causing me a lot of grief. If the problems I wrote about worked I wouldn't use Safari again and would commit to using Firefox. I would appreciate knowing how to do what I'm trying to do. Thanks,

Chris
