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?

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.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Pretty much soon after I first applied and ran 3.6

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

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...

I used to be able to edit web pages in Netscape and upload them via WS_FTPLE but latest version doesn't seem to be able to. Internet says Firefox (which we've been using for quite some time) is supposed to be "equivalent/better" than Netscape so looked for, and can't find, where and how to edit web pages so I can upload them via WS_FTPLE. Please could you advise if this is possible and where/how to do it? Many thanks.

I installed "The Sims 3 High-End Loft Stuff" add-on onto my computer. I already had Sims 3. After the add-on game installed correctly, I tried to start up the game by clicking the desktop icon. It pops up with a little window saying exactly this: "Active X controls are required to use this product. Please enable Active X controls in your Internet Explorer security settings and restart the application." Then once I ex out of that, another little window pops up reading: "JavaScript is required to use this product. Please enable javascript in your Internet Exlporer security settings and restart the application." Then, the Sims 3 game launcher (medium, not full screen) window pops up and I can't click anything cause it says my Sims 3 base game isn't compatible with the add-on sims 3 game.
