Tonight, when I loaded my browser, all my web pages came up without any background color- primarily just text on the same default system color background for all pages- this is fine for some simple pages, cause they load faster, but other pages like Facebook for example, I lose some of the graphical page elements, and that's not good! I'm not sure how this happened- all my pages going kinda `text only' (not totally- some foreground pictures load), and I'm not sure how to change it back- please help! I'm using 3.5.15 on a P4 tower.

There is one particular dynamic web page that I don't want to see a cached version when I go there - I want the current page, without having to refresh every time I visit it.

Is there any way to change FireFox's caching behaviour so that it always refreshes when first visiting a page?

Windows 2000 Pro SP4, FireFox 9.0.1.

Thanks, Daniel

When importing IE favorites to Firefox bookmarks I would like them to mix & mingle - not come in as an added folder in the drop down bookmark list. With IE you are able to go to Favorites folder in 'C:/documents and settings/user profile/favorites and directly edit. Can't seem to do that with Firefox's 'Profile' file.

How to change header and footer indents?

I would like to change the header and footer printing indents to match the indents for the page when I print it, for example 1/2 inch (12 mm) from the left edge and the right edge. While it's possible to set the page indent, it doesn't seem possible to adjust the header/footer indents.

Why would I like to make this change? The reason is that my laser printer seems to accumulate toner in this space, creating vertical streaks at the left and right edge of the paper.

This seems to be true of versions of Firefox 3.x to 5.x on Windows 2000, XP and Ubuntu Linux (10.1)

Other document programs that keep all text at least 1/4-inch (6 mm) from the left and right edges do not create this problem. Is there a work-around or hand-coding I can enter into the "custom" field of the header or footer?

Thanks

After installing Firefox 11, whenever the computer awakens from sleep mode, and new tabs created do not appear on the tab bar, although they do appear on the pull-down list on the far right.

This is the most obvious problem, but there is other strange behaviour when in this state, such as the screen not refreshing when switching tabs, and Firefox crashing with "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library" "Runtime Error!" "abnormal program termination".

The latest versions to work on w2000 are 28.0 and 24.8.1esr. Wich to use, and why?

Forced to use the windows 2000 OS. By release date 24.8.1esr is identical to 31.1.0esr (not working on w2000) and close to 32.0 (newer than 28.0) So, between 28.0 and 24.8.1esr, wich is: - faster - safer - less resources - better rendering - accept more new addons/extensions/plugins - has better chances to become obsolete (die) the latest

I an stucked on windows 2000 for an undefinite period in the future and I wish to be able to use the best browser Firefox has to offer.

I use the PORTABLE VERSIONS, at some point, I could share the same profile between 28.0 and 24.8.1esr. I guess they can share alternatively the same files in the profile folder ?

This is not a specific question, as it is more of a general frustration with Firefox. I notice Firefox is much faster if I disable many add-ons I have installed over the years. It seems like Firefox gets a bad wrap because some add-ons slow down Firefox. Aren't there benchmarking tools available to show before and after results of using an add-on? I am using 5 out 19 add-ons at the moment and performance is a lot faster. All this time though, I just thought Firefox sucked when disabling add-ons leads me to believe that the culprit for the slow performance is due to an add-on.

Anyway, I think if Mozilla wants to protect their reputation more, the benchmarking tools should be a tool a browser user can interact with.
