I use Honeywell software to control our heating and air conditioning system. I cannot access this internal web site with Mozilla 3.6 (I get a timeout after a long delay). I had to roll back to 3.5 in order to get it to work again. What internet interfaces were changed for 3.6, and has anyone else had problems? This upgrade also made it so IE didn't work for this site either. Thanks.

URL of affected sites

Any links that open as new windows or pop-ups will not work in Firefox, even when I disable pop-up blocker. For example in Gmail I can click a person's e-mail as a hyperlink and it is supposed to open a new e-mail message to that address in a separate window. However, when I try it in Firefox, nothing happens, the window won't open. No link that operates this way will work. I have tried disabling pop-up blocker but the problem still happens.

My computer was attacked by malware and could not boot. Tried upgrading Windows XP but can't because it needs a working Windows install. Can't re-install because there is not enough space on the HDD. So I replaced the drive and got Windows 7 working on it.

Now the Firefox question: how do I get my bookmarks on the old drive into my new one? I can access my files on the old drive by putting in in an external HD enclosure. But i don't know where to look for my bookmarks database folder so that I could move it to my new drive.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I have years of bookmarks in the old drive.

Thanks Paul

I have had this issue on a few websites. Basically I managed to manipulate the website's Java applet in some way that instead of appearing full sized, it has shrunk to a compacted size and forces me to have to scroll across to see either side. I once somehow fixed one of the sites by randomly clicking and dragging out of frustration, but I can't seem to repeat the act.

Does anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

for Gmail especially, my cookies need to be turned on. When I check Firefox's Options, it says they are already enabled. I found out that switching "Use Custom Settings for History" to "Remember History" next to 'Firefox will:' under the Privacy tab seems to fix the issue and make Gmail happy. But within 5 minutes it reverts back to "Use Custom Settings..." and therefore GMail (and other websites as well) stop working again.

How do I get Firefox to "Remember my History" and not revert my settings?

Updating Firefox resets all settings, disables all plugins, turns off all add-ons, but does not erase favorites, history, or the existance of these plugins and such, but rather, it does not let them load.

This has happened several times, so I eventually disabled the "Update the Firefox" setting in my options.

Alas, Firefox weaseled around it and updated it on its own and against my will. Sick of it, I decided to let it work. As it ahd several times, the upgraded Firefox was reset to its original grey, themeless, no-frills, blank slate with all add-ons, plugins, toolbars, and features completely wiped.

I go into "Tools/Add-Ons" and everything that I have is there. All add-ons are accounted for, all plugins attended to, all themes instated, and all extensions set exactly as they were before the update. The only problem is that I can't get them back. They are all compatible with this edition of Firefox, but they won't come back.

This has been driving me crazy and has really made me frustrated.

I implore the community to assist me with this wretched error. Please help me fix the Firefox and allow for my customizations to return!

I have to use V3.5.10 despite wanting to run 3.6 (just updated to 3.6.6 too). However when I run 3.6 I hear thru my sounds set up a process open briefly and then close every 30 seconds or so - it's very regular and insistent and I'd like to know what it is and why. It's too brief to spot in Task manager processes listing. This did happen once under 3.5 I seem to recall but was cured when it upgraded.

Firefox will not print to my HP PSC750 inkjet printer but prints with no problem to the monochrome Brother HL-5240. Other browsers print to both printers with no problem. I must print out filled-in webforms and must use the inkjet printer for that. However, Firefox presents me with a dialog box that says "An unknown error has occurred while printing", even when nothing at all has even started to print out.

When I next try to print the same screen content to the monochrome laser printer, the entire contents of the form showing on the web page will print out as a single block of text - all run together and utterly unintelligible.

How can I make Firefox print normally and legibly to my HP inkjet printer, the same as other browsers?

Google was my search engine anytime I would type just keywords into the line where you type web addresses. However, I somehow must have uploaded a new search engine called 'Inbox', which I don't care for, and now I have to type keywords into the search to the right of the screen to use google. I would like to make google my permanent search engine when using Firefox. Any suggestions? I thought I had already deleted the inbox toolbar, but it didn't change my search engine. I am not so computer savvy so...
