I noticed that often when I open up some site, there's a Cyrillic letter "в" is placed before the name of that site. It is there only for a minute or two and then disappears. What is it? I can't find any relevant information on the Internet. But it doesn't sound like something good. Can anyone help me?

I am trying to restore the Most Visited tab which I've had until just now, and it has disappeared. Found someone's "answer" to the problem, which was to type about:config into address bar which i did, then to find "browser.newtabpage.enabled", right click on it and hit RESET. Problem is, of the various options only "reset" was not highlighted/active so couldn't Reset.  ??? Anyone got any suggestions please, I'm tearing my hair out.

Specific in two words like "to build" and "to run". You have been translated as "construir" and "correr" respectively. The first one is used for buildings, bridges, roads, etc. The second word is used for races, cars, change of position. The very technical translation for those words are "compilar" and "ejecutar", "to compile" and "to execute" respectively. Best regards.

I was "trying" Firefox Hello but when I tried to use it for the first time, to connect with anyone I'd know, I was only given the choice of using Gmail or Yahoo as sources for email links. I primarily use Outlook and any contact I'd care to connect with would be located there. When the "Choose an application" window came up showing only Gmail and Yahoo, I clicked to find another app to use and have no idea how to find/connect with my Outlook app for email links. The Firefox app shows no way to access any other kind of email and I think that's damned short-sighted and arrogant of Firefox to not allow for customers/users of their app to access email links by other means!

Suddenly after years of successful printing from my browser I cannot! The print on either of my computers approximately 20% of the correct size and I have to copy and paste to Word or download in another format to print. This tells me that it is definitely Firefox issue and I have spent over 2 months trying to diagnose the change?

Forgive me my ignorance, but there was options in a drop down that one could use to make a better search. Like- search must contain these words- must not contain these words- must have these words in title and etc.. FF may not have had it but some browser did. And there were short cuts ie. ( ) around a word or set of them meant they must be used in page exactly as written or { } these should not appear in page. Is there such a thing in FF?

My apology in advance, I don't need help, I'm just trying to pass on a suggestion to the interface/dev team.

Get more user data; In Options/DataChoices/Telemetry, put an "Send hardware and customization information, once" checkbox/button.

A lot of people might be willing to share system info once, but don't want someone "looking over their shoulder" all the time. Also, why collect and share the user's IP address? I'd suggest you get it, generated location information, and then dispose of it.


Cheers and thanks, Scott

When selecting "Print" from maps.google.com a print window used to pop up as windowed, not full screen. Now it pops up as full screen. Deleting "Localstore.rdf" used to fix this. After deleting "localstore.rdf" this file is now no longer created. Deleting "xulstore.json" does not fix this issue either.

How do I restore the operation where this "print" page loads as windowed, not full screen?
