I have used the instructions for changing the new tab page. This did not change the start page. Do I need to close firefox for it to take affect? If so it is not in the instructions. I used to have a Google start page but now it is from Ask.com and that is useless for me. I get no good results from Ask. I tried changing to Google, I tried changing to blank, still it does not change. Any suggestions on what I can try?

Firefox version - 37.0.1 OS - windows 7 64bit addons - only adblock plus, but disabled on the gmail.com I have this problem since a few months ago.

So i have gmail on a pinned tab. Sometimes when i start the browser, it's not loading the gmail. I get the loading bar, which not begin to fill up. Down on this page i have a link if i want to load the basic html page. If i click on this, the basic html page loads, and if i click on this page to load the normal, default page, it's load normally. If i don't do this, but only press the refresh button, is not help. If i close the browser and open again, usually still wrong. But this thing doesnt happen every time. The gmail usually load ok. I would say, its wrong 2 times from 10, then i click basic-html, then normal, and its alright.

To solve this problem, i uninstalled the Firefox, and deleted the Firefox folders from the appdata local and roaming, downloaded a new version and installed from scratch. I still get this problem. Sometimes.

I dont have antivirus, proxy, firewall, internet security software.

I searched on the internet, and i see others have same problem too, but i didnt found solution. I dont use any addons, other than adblock plus, but i set to dont activate on gmail, and its button is greyed out.

There is a settings to prevent this behaviour, or this is a bug and can hope for a fix?

before the latest and greatest firefox update i was able to manually activate flash (to prevent pages from automatically loading them and bogging down memory) by having the shockwave flash addon option as 'ask to activate'.

no longer is that the case. my firefox updated automatically and load flash automatically. no matter if i have 'ask to activate' or even disable the shockwave flash addon or anything else.

i tried using flashblock but it makes loading flash unusable, when i click the button to view it, the swf plays audio of the video but does not show the video/picture. scrolling the video freezes it or makes it buggy and reloading the swf does not work.

long story short, how to make it like before where i click to manually activate the plugin per swf without the use of flashblock because it is useless/worthless.

Sometime during the past year, Firefox has stopped retaining US English as my default spellchecker dictionary. I believe Gmail is somehow the culprit, though I cannot suggest how. I have my default spellchecker dictionary set to US English (en-US).

In some tests I did just now: Launch Firefox, go to edit environment in Wikipedia, spellchecker dictionary is set to US English, about:config spellchecker.dictionary setting concurs. Restart FF, go to Gmail > compose, dictionary defaults to the French one I have installed (fr-xx-classique+reforme1990)*, about:config spellchecker.dictionary setting concurs. Open second tab, go to WP edit session, dictionary is set to en-US, though about:config setting still set to French.

I tried the above troubleshooting steps in a couple different sequences and did not get consistent results. At first, once I had switched to en-US in the Gmail compose environment (by right-clicking on an underlined string), that setting seemed to take for the remainder of the browser session across multiple tabs. I restarted FF and it still seemed to be holding, even in Gmail. Then, after restarting the computer and starting a Gmail compose session, the dictionary was back to French.

On Bugzilla@Mozilla, I see only one potentially related issue when I search on "default spellchecker": https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1061650

Anyone else reporting such behavior? Anyone have any ideas? --Eric

current system: FF 34.0.5 on Windows 7 sp1

  • Note: There is an open, longtime Red Hat Bugzilla bug that looks to be reporting possibly related behavior on Linux systems:

I keep changing the option about what to show on next startup to "Show my windows and tabs from last time". Every time I restart Firefox, it gets changed back to "Show my home page". I've uninstalled Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folders under AppData, reinstalled, and it still keeps losing my selection.

I changed my Home page and "When Firefox Starts:" to "Show my windows and tabs from last time". Now every time I start Firefox I am prompted that another application has changed my start page and I am given the options of either reverting to the original setting (the default) or keeping the new setting. When I choose to keep my setting, I am prompted a second time with the same options and default. When I choose again to keep my setting I can finally continue with it until have to restart Firefox. This is extremely frustrating and unless I can find a solution I am reluctantly going to switch to another browser. This problem is on my new laptop running Windows 10 and Firefox 46.0.1. I am also currently using Firefox on Windows XP desktop and an Ubuntu Linux laptop, neither of which has this problem. I am not certain of the Firefox version on either of these two systems

Please help me solve this problem. I have used Firefox for a long time and do not want to learn to use another browser.

One of my customers run an web application in Firefox and they want their users to just be able to use Firefox for that particular site. They run Firefox 42 today and we have managed to remove all the "bars" using the UserChrome.css folder. We have also applied some custom settings using the .cfg file. However, now they want to upgrade to Firefox 48 and I tried the same solution but it doesn´t work. For some reason UserChrome.css doesnt get copied to the profiles folder. If I manually copy it, it works.

In Firefox 42 the UserChrome.css is located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser\defaults\profile\Chrome

Is there any changes done to the folder structure in Firefox 48? Do you have any suggestions how I can solve this?

I want to print certain pages of documents because some have information on page that I don't need. But I can't find a way to select certain pages (like 1,3). The print add-on mentioned in another question didn't work ... didn't even given an option to select pages. Chrome and Explorer both give this option. Why not on Firefox? There must be a way to do it without having to add in something. This is pretty basic.

When I start my browser all buttons on toolbar are in their places.

http://c2n.me/3cwiz9M.jpg

When I resize my browser window to make it smaller, these buttons collapse to one "arrow" icon:

http://c2n.me/3cwiLnZ.jpg

But when I resize my browser window to make it bigger again or maximize browser window, those buttons don't reappear no matter what I do next.

The only thing that helps is to close browser and run it again.

I want Firefox to remember my history at websites so I don't have to keep entering my username and passwords. I go into the Menu, click on Options, then Privacy, then choose the option to have Firefox remember my history. After that it works fine. However, when I shut off my computer and then turn it on again later the settings that I chose (to remember history) haven't been saved and I have to go through that whole process of Options, Privacy, Remember My History all over again. How can I get Firefox to remember/save my settings so I don't have to do this each time I turn on my computer? Thanks for any help you can provide on this.

Hi! I've been having an unusual problem relating to, what I was told is the "built-in popup blocker" in Firefox, & that there's an about:config setting(s) that I need to change. Here are the problems I've been having: 1. When I try to place an order online I can't use Firefox, (& I'm forced to use the nasty old IE), because when I click on certain items I don't get the small drop-down menu that allows me to choose the flavor/size/quantity. (e.g. My dog's chew bones come in 4 flavors, but when I click on the bones I want I don't get the little drop-down menu that shows the flavors; I'm unable to continue placing the order because the site needs to know what flavor I want to order) 2. There are 5 sites showing streaming media of "nest-cams" of Bald Eagles; Peregrine Falcons & various other wildlife that I view daily. One site is http://www.wildearth.tv/cam/pittsburgh-bald-eagles; however, I can't view the site on my PC because this site, (& the other 4 as well), rely on "pop-up ads" for revenue, & if you have a free account rather than a paid subscription, the pop-up ads are just part of the viewing experience on the site. I was told by one of the Moderators that Firefox has a 'built-in' pop-up blocker, (not one that's added on as an extension/add-on/plugin), & that there's an about:config setting(s) that I need to change so I'm able to view my nest-cams on their sites. ***IMPORTANT INFORMATION*** If I go to any of the 5 'problem' sites using my iPad...sitting only inches away from my PC...using the same Internet connection...I can watch these sites perfectly!! Weird, huh?!?! So, I was told I need to go to about:config & make adjustment(s), but I don't want to screw anything up! I went there & looked through everything & there are several lines containing the word "pop-up", so I need the advice of someone who knows what to do. Tada...so her I am bothering you nice people! I'm running Windows 8.1 & using Firefox 34.0.5, (this is the device that won't let me view the nest cams); my iPad is new, v.8, (I think)..& I can & do watch any site I want, (including the 5 'problem' sites any time I want...the picture is too tiny for regular viewing & I can't take screenshots for the detailed records I keep, or I'd just use my iPad all the time). I have the box in Tools>Options UN-checked for 'Block Pop-up Windows', & I do NOT have any other pop-up blocker enabled in Firefox. I hope I gave enough info, but if you need to know anything else, just ask. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, & thanks in advance for any suggestions/instructions you may provide. I really need to be able to access these 5 sites using my PC because the nest-cams have been turned on for the 2015 Season & I'm desperate to get this matter resolved. It won't be long till there are eggs being laid & I have to be ready!  :) Thanks a bunch! Nuts4Mutts  :)
