I use a Netbook, which has a small screen, so I typically "zoom in" to enlarge the appearance of text and images. Is there a way to lock in a desired zoom level so that I don't have to adjust every new tab or window that I open?

FF 4b5 Meu/Tab font does not follow Windows Settings

Hi There !

I'm running Win 7 64bit but with changed default system font. I've modified system configuration so instead "Sagoe UI" (or something like this) - which Win 7 uses as default font, I'm using MS Sans Serif.

Everything worked well with all previous FF 4 betas (1-4) but since I've installed Beta 5 - Firefox started using Strange font (not Sagoe, not MS Sans) in menus (even Firefox text on this ugly Orange button is displayed with this strange font).

Not only menu and menu items but also; texts on tabs, texts used in settings, texts in About, address bar, search bar ... entire FF4b5 Interface. Pages are displayed correctly.

In FF4b4 - everything worked well and FF followed system font. Beta 5 messed this up.

Any ideas how to force FF 4b5 to follow Win7 settings?

Thanks in advance !

I have several Gmail accounts. One particular username/password is not being remembered. It used to be remembered but now it does not appear in the dropdown list of usernames. I enter it manually each time and FireFox does not prompt to have it saved. If I enter a new Gmail username, I receive the prompt.

I added the Boolean line in about:config; network.manage-offline-status and set value to false, as FF was going offline every time my Mac slept. The next morning the offline behavior returned. Silly me, I simply added the line again and now have it twice. How do I delete that extra command? Even if it's ineffective it's untidy.

Normally, I can type the name of the website followed by ctrl+enter and I can access it right away. For example, after I type "google" into the address bar, I normally press ctrl+enter afterwards, and it would automatically become "www.google.com" in the address bar. If I do it now, nothing happens. Not only that, if I type the url and click enter, nothing happens either. Is there any way to solve this problem?

For now, the only way to browse is to press the go arrow to launch the web. The shortcut has malfunctioned.

Netflix on demand video was playing properly in Firefox 4 beta 6 but no longer works in the later betas. When attempting to play a movie I get a message which says "Thanks for Installing once installation is complete, please restart your browser to watch this movie". I can still watch in Chrome and in Opera (masked as Firefox). Silverlight is up to date and I can see it in the Firefox plugins menu. Does anyone know why or how to fix this? Any answers would be fun thanks!

it seems that every single tab gets its own unique window, now i feel that this is inefficient as well as making being organized out side of firefox a harder task. Since when you close any of the windows that hold 1 tab it removes it from the master window and the group menu.

Now hopefully this is just a bug caused by the new as well as great packaged feature that the grouping tool is.

I have heard that minefield 4.0 interface under Linux should be pretty much same as firefox 4.0 beta under Windows. But I got this annoying menu bar and don't have big gray minefield button.

Oh, I have found it. Should have disabled menu bar first. But it's on the upper right. Is there a way to move it to the upper left?

Firefox hangs for ages when visiting websites that use unicode characters - the more of those characters, the longer it hangs. I tried using the Safe Mode, the problem is gone. But in normal mode, even with all plugins disabled, I still get these awful hangs. I tried ff4b7 and 4b8, plus minefield 4b9pre, all with the same problem. Firefox 3.6 doesn't have the problem. Other webbrowsers work fine too so it is a firefox specific problem. I haven't found anything about this problem on the web so I am writing here. :S

Hi everyone

This is a weird issue I've been struggling with for a couple days now - Flash objects don't seem to load in Google reader. If I open the original page, they load though.

So I tried these:

  • Tried re-installing the Flash plugin - didn't work
  • I started Firefox in safe-mode - Fixed! - I could view all Flash objects
  • I disabled all my extensions - didn't fix the problem
  • I reset Firefox to the default user settings - didn't fix the problem
  • Tried making a new profile - didn't work either

What else does Safe-mode really do? What am I missing? Any ideas?

Thanks!

Had issues with current FF version so tried to update to FF4. Install went well but on launching the initial window opens with all my tabs displayed and will not respond to anything other than close window. This action then leaves firefox.exe 32* running requiring CTRL ALT DEL to kill the task.

Previous problem with current firefox is the occasional crash when unattended that recovers beautifully.
