Recently (presumably since the last build - currently 22.0) Firefox will change the default spell-check language (English Canadian) any time I change tabs or another application takes the focus away from Firefox to English - US. The default language on my system and Firefox itself (both English Canadian) remain unchanged, only the spell-check language is changing.

I don't know what I'd done, but the next time I opened firefox, another tab opens up automatically to a search engine called 'delta-homes.com' I have no idea what this is or how to remove it. I deleted my history and caches, as well as having uninstalled and reinstalled firefox. Is this possibly a virus? And Does anyone know how to remove it?

Version 22 has numerous defects. I wonder how this happened since it has ALWAYS been so dependable. Copy and paste functions won't work or are erratic. The web pages are over large and "blooming" sometimes appear "out of focus." These issues began immediately with downloading of version 22.

Will these issues be corrected?

This is true on both of my computers, one using Vista OS and the other Windows 7. If I switch to the IE OS (ugh!) these issues are NOT present.

Very experienced computer user/operator with 20 years experience.

Why doesn't my clear history completely clear my history

Hi there,

I'm trying to clear all of the browsing history from my Firefox but it's not working. The function clears all of my searches and website preferences and passwords bar one or two websites. I've ticked all of the options for clearing history, apart from 'form and search history' as it won't let me tick this box. I also deleted all of my bookmarks, ran a CC cleaner and STILL there's search history when I start to type into the bar at the top. When I go into my history --> show all history having cleared it, it says that there is nothing there...

For example.. when I start to type P in the bar at the top.. UK Parliament immediately comes up. And my bar at the top of the page isn't one of those where you can just automatically search via Google so I don't think its doing that!...

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but even so some websites are STILL there! How can I track these websites down and get rid of them?

Thanks for your help!!

When prompt to remember a password and selecting "Never remember password for this site", there's no option to coming back and adding the site to remember, if you selected no, previously.

I've been searching, researching and trying EVERY solution offered to fix this issue with Firefox, from users, staff and contributors. After exhausting all options I've come to a conclusion that there are NO fixes for this problem, short of uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. If so, the developers are giving out the fix(secret). Older solutions don't work with the current version I'm having problems with(22.0).

Under the options--->security--->The "remember password", is checked(as usual). The exception box is empty. This is not an extension problem. Safe Mode solution doesn't work. The "Bookmarklet" solution doesn't work. Site prohibit is not the case, example: I can have a couple of Yahoo passwords that are remembered, but the one site I choose to never remember, I can't get to remember. Mind you, I've been using/doing this for years with no problem, and I have the same passwords remembered on other computers. This is just one instant I selected no at the time, and now I want to change it.

With all options tried I look forward to a solution, fix, or repair for, said problem. Thank You!

I'm using an elan-based touchpad driver (V 1.1.3 Asus smart gesture on Asus UX31A-DH51 ultrabook)... but find that three finger back/forward touchpad scrolling doesn't work with Firefox (22.0).

It seems to be working everywhere else, though (in windows, IE, etc).

I've tried to search the web for solutions but no luck.

Has anyone found a way to get this working and/or also had problems with Firefox/Elan combination?

Thanks!

Why is Firefox 22 forcing YouTube pages to be HTTPS rather than HTTP? I have them bookmarked as HTTP, yet they are now showing up as HTTPS. With this new setup, the preview images for other videos on a video page are not showing up. Safari and Opera browsers are still accessing YouTube as HTTP, so it cannot be the site doing that switch. Is there some way to stop this?

Since the last update (version 22) my browser seems to be randomly resizing websites to show much larger than their native resolution. I have two websites of my own and they look dreadful when re-sized. I spent hours refining them and getting them just the way I want them so my concern is that the viewing public aren't seeing them the way that I intended if this is a common issue.

I can zoom back out so they look as they should but as soon as I restart the browser the problem re-appears. This never happened with the previous version, why is it doing it now?

recently updated to ver 22, , and started noticing that I can no longer copy and paste from sites I visit since the update. I can copy and paste from Chrome, IE, and other software within my PC. This appears to be only a problem with Firefox. Have used all of your suggestions for troubleshooting and none of these work for me. I am using Windows XP Pro, with an AMD dual processor, 4gB memory and plenty of available disc space. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Do not know if the update had any thing to do with the problem. Thanks

Since the last update, I cannot customize the zoom in Firefox. This is vital because it enables me to finish the online courses and exams I am taking. Since the last update I cannot use the buttons at the bottoms of all the screens of the online courses and exams. Some companies do not have the resources to keep up with the latest version browsers and can't change as often as private people. Firefox must keep this in consideration. I can't find any information on customizing the zoom. That function is no longer there. Even without taking the courses, I absolutely detest this. Firefox zooms in too closely for most sites and I absolutely detest having to adjust it every time I change a page. If Firefox does not change its product so that zoom can be set at a different level I will have to stop using it altogether. Do you really want me to use a competitor? I need to finish the courses and exams by in THREE DAYS. Your product is not helping one bit.

Version 22 is a dog with these blurry text and graphics!

The "solution" you posted can't be tried, because the link doesn't work to get to the KB note on configuring layout.css.devPixelsPerPx Why didn't you simply post instructions to actually MAKE THE CHANGE in your answer??

And why should all of us have to get under the hood to fix the CSS when it's clear that Mozilla fouled up?

Just loaded FF22. Sometimes I have a slow connection speed and I need FF to open links in a new tab, so pages do not have to reload. On the earlier version. Say I went to www.google.com and clicked on search link, It would open in a new tab (without right clicking link, and specifying to "Open link in new tab" It would do this on all links automaticly. Am I missing something here. Do I need to go into about.config to set this. Or go back to an earlier version of FF.

This just started a few months ago. I cannot open a PDF from a search engine with FF (version 22). I click on a link (PDF) and FF opens a blank tab. I have searched Options-Applications-Search for PDF, and nothing comes up. However, in the applications tab, I can see Adobe Reader (default). PDF opens just fine with IE 10 and Google Chrome. I have read through all of the other posts regarding this issue, and I have tried the advice there to no avail. Can someone please help me? Thank you!
