I have used the instructions for changing the new tab page. This did not change the start page. Do I need to close firefox for it to take affect? If so it is not in the instructions. I used to have a Google start page but now it is from Ask.com and that is useless for me. I get no good results from Ask. I tried changing to Google, I tried changing to blank, still it does not change. Any suggestions on what I can try?

In the UK, the network 'giffgaff' runs on the O2 network and automatically sets the voicemail number to the O2 voicemail number 901 instead of the giffgaff one of 443. This is a known problem of for Android 2.x. With Android you can change the voicemail number in the settings.

How can you do this with Firefox OS?

Firefox default spellchecker dictionary changed by Gmail

Sometime during the past year, Firefox has stopped retaining US English as my default spellchecker dictionary. I believe Gmail is somehow the culprit, though I cannot suggest how. I have my default spellchecker dictionary set to US English (en-US).

In some tests I did just now: Launch Firefox, go to edit environment in Wikipedia, spellchecker dictionary is set to US English, about:config spellchecker.dictionary setting concurs. Restart FF, go to Gmail > compose, dictionary defaults to the French one I have installed (fr-xx-classique+reforme1990)*, about:config spellchecker.dictionary setting concurs. Open second tab, go to WP edit session, dictionary is set to en-US, though about:config setting still set to French.

I tried the above troubleshooting steps in a couple different sequences and did not get consistent results. At first, once I had switched to en-US in the Gmail compose environment (by right-clicking on an underlined string), that setting seemed to take for the remainder of the browser session across multiple tabs. I restarted FF and it still seemed to be holding, even in Gmail. Then, after restarting the computer and starting a Gmail compose session, the dictionary was back to French.

On Bugzilla@Mozilla, I see only one potentially related issue when I search on "default spellchecker": https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1061650

Anyone else reporting such behavior? Anyone have any ideas? --Eric

current system: FF 34.0.5 on Windows 7 sp1

  • Note: There is an open, longtime Red Hat Bugzilla bug that looks to be reporting possibly related behavior on Linux systems:

There is a toolbar feature in the lower right corner of the taskbar. I tried to set up the Links toolbar. I can drag addresses to this, but when I click them, nothing happens. What should happen is the site/page whose address I clicked should open.

How can I fix this? Is it a problem with the Firefox I'm currently using?

I would like for Mozilla to develop a relatively high end smart phone i.e. on the level of a Samsung Galaxy S6 or iPhone 6, but also have an operating system and apps that do not track everything I do, everything I buy, where I shop, where I travel, who I send messages to, etc,etc. In other words a modern smartphone with an OS and apps that will not collect and/or sell my data for profit or just snoop on me. Can Mozilla do this, please?

Syncing or at least exchanging Firefox OS contacts/dates with desktop thunderbird addressbook / lightning ist a must have for me. Are there any possibilities?

In the FAQ there is at least a possibility to import contacts via SD-card mentioned (but not described). It is strange, that nothing can be found on this topic which I think affects many many users who do not want to "share" their contacts/dates with Facebook and Google these days. Potential Firefox OS users in particular...

What about carddav/caldav-support in Firefox OS?

Just re-installed Firefox on a tablet running Android. Went to sync Firefox. At the sign in page on the Android (Galaxy Tab 3 with Jelly Bean) device, entering my details prompts an 'Unknown account' error. I went back to my PC and saw that the details are indeed exactly correct. I checked them on the PC and the password is right too. But getting sync started on the Android has so far proved impossible.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Firefox 34.0.5 is blocking "necessary" popups & preventing me from viewing/using several sites, even though I've un- checked the box, "Block Popups".

Hi! I've been having an unusual problem relating to, what I was told is the "built-in popup blocker" in Firefox, & that there's an about:config setting(s) that I need to change. Here are the problems I've been having: 1. When I try to place an order online I can't use Firefox, (& I'm forced to use the nasty old IE), because when I click on certain items I don't get the small drop-down menu that allows me to choose the flavor/size/quantity. (e.g. My dog's chew bones come in 4 flavors, but when I click on the bones I want I don't get the little drop-down menu that shows the flavors; I'm unable to continue placing the order because the site needs to know what flavor I want to order) 2. There are 5 sites showing streaming media of "nest-cams" of Bald Eagles; Peregrine Falcons & various other wildlife that I view daily. One site is http://www.wildearth.tv/cam/pittsburgh-bald-eagles; however, I can't view the site on my PC because this site, (& the other 4 as well), rely on "pop-up ads" for revenue, & if you have a free account rather than a paid subscription, the pop-up ads are just part of the viewing experience on the site. I was told by one of the Moderators that Firefox has a 'built-in' pop-up blocker, (not one that's added on as an extension/add-on/plugin), & that there's an about:config setting(s) that I need to change so I'm able to view my nest-cams on their sites. ***IMPORTANT INFORMATION*** If I go to any of the 5 'problem' sites using my iPad...sitting only inches away from my PC...using the same Internet connection...I can watch these sites perfectly!! Weird, huh?!?! So, I was told I need to go to about:config & make adjustment(s), but I don't want to screw anything up! I went there & looked through everything & there are several lines containing the word "pop-up", so I need the advice of someone who knows what to do. Tada...so her I am bothering you nice people! I'm running Windows 8.1 & using Firefox 34.0.5, (this is the device that won't let me view the nest cams); my iPad is new, v.8, (I think)..& I can & do watch any site I want, (including the 5 'problem' sites any time I want...the picture is too tiny for regular viewing & I can't take screenshots for the detailed records I keep, or I'd just use my iPad all the time). I have the box in Tools>Options UN-checked for 'Block Pop-up Windows', & I do NOT have any other pop-up blocker enabled in Firefox. I hope I gave enough info, but if you need to know anything else, just ask. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, & thanks in advance for any suggestions/instructions you may provide. I really need to be able to access these 5 sites using my PC because the nest-cams have been turned on for the 2015 Season & I'm desperate to get this matter resolved. It won't be long till there are eggs being laid & I have to be ready!  :) Thanks a bunch! Nuts4Mutts  :)

I can hardly live without this feature, but I know 1.3 doesn't have it, and I'm stuck with an Alcatel OneTouch Fire. There must be a way to work around this limitation, however. Does anyone have any idea?

P.s.: I'm loving the phone and the OS so far and I can easily put up with the lack of apps (by developing whatever I need), but no selection / copy & paste? That's tough...
