How can I use web-console and element inspector simultaneously in Firefox 20+ as I could in Firefox 19-?

Yes, new web-developer all-in-one tools are total mess. I didn't find the answer to this question either https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/955612 but downgrade to Firefox 19. But nor in Nightly, nor in Aurora, nor in Firefox Beta, nor in Firefox 20.0 I can use simultaneously web-console (where I test some style changing javascript code) and element inspector (where I instantly observe a reaction to my code). The only option I see is to switch every three seconds between them. How can I fix this except downgrading?

How do I get rid of the three new buttons in the top right of the browser window?

I'm on the beta update channel (just installed the latest update to 21.0 this morning) and in the last update or two there's been 3 buttons on the top right of the window. I know the 2 on the left and center are to minimize and shrink the window and based on the icon I'm guessing the 3rd will exit or close. These 3 icons are taking up a full line dropping down everything else and I want to get rid of them to move everything back to the top. I can still move around and change everything else but these 3 seem to be permanent. Is there any way to move them or even better just delete them completely? They're very annoying!!!

So I've been download a file which is 1.80 GB, I let it download overnight but when I checked it. The download stopped in 1.60 GB and I don't really feel like downloading it all over again.

I searched in Google for some ways to resume it, there are some that seems to be working. But when I tried, it won't work. Like the .PART method, since I'm using Windows 7 the incomplete and the .PART file won't merge (or whatever they call it)!

Is there a way to merge those two files? Or am I doing it wrong? Please help, I'm like 20mb-200mb (or whatever the leftover is) away from finishing that damn download.

I've set the action for opening PDF files to 'Always Ask'. Then I can save the file or open it with any other pdf viewer. But the 'open with' option in that dialog box lists only the external pdf viewers. An option in that dialog box to view the file within firefox using pdf.js would be helpful.

I have persistent problems with FIREFOX start delay. After I click to start FIREFOX, FIREFOX does not come up but the WINDOWS TASK MANAGER 2nd tab: Processes. shows up many firefox process with different mem use but FIREFOX simply don't come up!

If I am lucky, I can start FIREFOX from shortcut after I "END THE PROCESS TREE" of all FIREFOX in TM's 2nd tab.

I reset and reinstall FIREFOX many time but no fix.

Please let me know how to start up FIREFOX without delays! hklo@operamail.com

It's weird—for the past few days my Firefox has been very erratic in acknowledging the use of my scrollwheel. Some pages work just fine. Other pages refuse to scroll at all, or only scroll if I have my mouse cursor positioned in some (seemingly random) spot.

I experienced a similar problem when I had the buggy Facebook Messenger windows app installed, and killing that seemed to fix my troubles. Now, I can't place the blame on any background apps like that, and I've just restarted, and I haven't installed any new addons, either.

Thoughts? Thanks!

What I want is to sort my bookmarks in alpha order a-z. I would like to have ALL the Folders listed FIRST in alpha order a-z, then Have the rest of the bookmarks (which aren't in folders) listed in alpha order a-z. Is there a way to do this? This is a NEW install of Windows 7 SP1 [32-bit], and a new install of Mozilla Firefox 21.0 Beta. I backed up my bookmarks before I did a fresh install of everything, so I have a backup folder with a file (.json file) that holds all 897 bookmarks. I would really appreciate any and all help concerning this matter.

 As you can see, my Troubleshooting information is listed below. I have NOT installed any themes, addons or anything yet. Please, help me with this problem. There should be a way to do what I need to do without the help of any addons.

Thank You. David

A couple of days ago, I started having issues with Flash-based applications in Firefox, but not in, say, Internet Explorer. Basically, the thing that happens is that either the Flash-based music player pauses or the video that's being played loses sound, but not the video.

I've seen this on three different occasions: - myspace player abruptly pauses a couple of minutes into a song - embedded bandcamp player abruptly pauses a couple of minutes into a song - a streaming video based on Flash cuts sound off, but not video, making me have to rewind back to before that happened

I've tried reinstalling both Firefox and Flash (after doing a clean uninstall), I've tried disabling hardware acceleration, I've tried disabling Avira, and all of my other add-ons are up-to-date. As I said, at least the myspace player thing does not happen in IE, so I believe this is a strictly Firefox issue.

Does anyone know what to do?
