The latest of version of Firefox 17.0 just downloaded is preventing Norton Identity safe from filling in my user names and passwords. Identity Safe still appears in the menu bar and is still enabled as an add-on but it doesn't fill in user names and passwords. How can I re-install the previous version of Firefox which worked fine?

The spell-checking dictionaries on my computer now include: French (reform); French (classic); French (classic/reform); and French (modern). I have no clue how they got there, but spell-checking tries to default to French (reform). I don't see a way to delete them. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Ed LeRoy

Invalid URL Errors when trying to access custom Sync Server(rev 532) from Firefox 17.0 for Android via HTTPS

I currently have Sync Server(rev 532) installed on FreeBSD-STABLE(stable/9) and have Firefox 17 on Mac OS X and Windows XP sync successfully. But when I try to pair Firefox 17.0 for Android by entering 3 rows of 4 letter codes into Firefox on Desktop, the sync never ends on Android, although the Sync account gets listed in "Settings> Accounts & sync> Firefox Sync". If I try to pair the Android with advanced setting (using the Recovery Key), I get "Please enter valid server URL" after entering custom server URL (I tried mozsync.mydomain.tld, https://mozsync.mydomain.tld, https://mozsync.mydomain.tld/) along with my account information. I had my Sync Server listen on HTTPS only, but if I setup my server on HTTP, everything works as expected. The content of log file for SSL connection only includes the logs from my Desktop and none from my Android device. Direct access from Firefox for Android to "https://mozsync.mydomain.tld/weave-delete-account" succeeds, and this connection gets logged. My device is HTC Evo 4G (named HTC EVO WiMAX ISW11HT in Japan) with officially updated of version Android (2.3.4 Gingerbread :P) by HTC.

I currently have my Sync Server listening on HTTP, but I am little uncomfortable with my syncing datas being tranmitted without SSL. Any help is appreciated!!!

When viewing a standalone image too large to fit in the window, Firefox automatically resizes it.

That's all well and good, but I deal with smaller images most of the time. Having to manually zoom the image every time to get it around window size is very tedious, and I'd like to avoid the rigmarole.

I removed Bing from my computer as I did not like it much. Since Google has now become such a useless piece of junk I decided to re-install Bing but each time I try I get the following message. Quiote: Firefox could not install the search plugin from "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/54407/bing-20090601.xml?src=category" because an engine with the same name already exists. This engine does no show up anywhere on my computer except for an XML file in Firefox/searchengines. I have deleted them but it makes no difference. The files do not show in Tools\addons nor in about:config. Please don't tell me that Firefox is become as useless as Google...............I don't want to have to use IE.

WinXP SP3, Firefox 17.0. Pentium 4: 1 CPU w/hyperthreading @ 2GHZ, 1.5GB RAM Firefox is installed on c: (plenty of empty disk space) Drive E: is a 4GB SSD which is mostly empty. (Actually a flash drive on an INTERNAL USB 2.0 port, so it is NOT removable. I don't care if multiple read/writes wear it out - it is a cashe drive, not for any kind of permanent storage.) I want to set the Cashe to E: for better performance

Just updated to Firefox 17 on my Windows 7 PC. The close tab buttons are now on the left side of the tab instead of the right side. How do I move them back to the right side? I can't find any other help on this and have tried playing around with about:config userchrome, but to no avail. I can change the color, add a button on the bar, but can't affect the positioning of the close tab buttons on the tabs themselves.

HELP!
