I setup computers without internet support and I get the offline installers so I can do this. The installers used to be offline but recently they are not. This gets irritating. Why the assumption that the internet is always available???

UPDATE! This question is not marked as answered, as the issue is a new 'feature' of Firefox 22, and if you read all the comments you'd see that. Clearly, with the large volume of 'new' answers coming in saying the same thing over and over, people aren't, so I'll say it here: THERE IS NO NEED TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION ANY MORE.

I recently asked about my UI being big and fuzzy, and managed to get that fixed in the about:config, but websites are still big.

For some reason, the default zoom (ctrl+0) is at 120%.

I tried the FullZoom and NoSquint addons, but both had one issue. They messed up the top level image view (which for me works with the old default image style addon) and made the unzoomed image a bit bigger than my screen, and the magnifying glass icon which should appear with a + or - in it when I mouse over the image is just a regular mouse pointer instead.

How can I reset the default zoom to be 100% (or preferably about 80% because even 100 seems to be overcompensating for my high dpi screen) without an addon messing up my default image view?


Further details. If I disable the 'old default image style' addon, the top level image view works fine with the NoSquint or FullZoom addons.

can't move the screen image-display. I hover the mouse-arrow over the edge, to drag the screen inwards and it won't work. Neither the left side, nor the right, nor the top or bottom. I need to be able to do this because my monitor have a graphics error on the far right side of the screen-display that covers about two inches in width the whole length of the right side of my window screen image, so I can not see where to put my mouse cursor in order to scroll up and down. Plus, sometimes I want to make the window image shorter or longer again, and I can't even do that. It seems like it is a "settings" issue. Just don't know how to enable it. Please help.

EVERY time I try to access my e-mail through Firefox I instantly get this message: "Your session has expired. Please log in again". My provider is Time/Warner, and my internet access is working fine. Firefox is also working well except for this e-mail issue; I can access my stored bookmarks, etc., no problem. I can even access my Time Warner e-mail through another browser (Safari), so I know there is currently nothing wrong with the Time/Warner site's built-in e-mail engine. I have already tried reinstalling Firefox, including several different versions, to no avail. I've also tried "resetting" per your troubleshooting instructions, and restarting in Safe Mode. No success. This issue began suddenly a couple days ago—no warning. To my knowledge I have received no viruses or malware in recent months. Tech Support at Time/Warner tells me other customers are having this same problem lately. Suggestions? Thanks, Jeff

I have had a problem with Firefox freezing when I try to do just about anything other than simple browsing for at least two years. Updates don't help nor disabling all add-ons, nor reinstalling, etc. Nobody can figure out how to fix it so I use it as-is. I would like to update the Adobe Flash Player add-on but Firefox freezes every time I try. Is there a way to update the Flash Player in Firefox with actually running Firefox?

Thanks

Running XP SP3 and latest Firefox. Also running IE8 using the latest Flash Player.

My Firefox on a windows 7 HP laptop updated today (June 25th) and the zoom adjusted, changing the font size, as well as icons and zoomed in on websites. I noticed in the list of changes for the program it says "improved rendering on high-res displays" is this the problem and is there anyway I can disable this? I was quite happy with the resolution before, and find this tacky and annoying...

I have been using firefox for 3 years already and up until now there is a problem with facebook on firefox. I tried using other web-browsers and facebook works perfectly. I already reset it to factory settings, restart firefox, restart pc, restart router, clear cache and nothing works. I even disabled the addons. Sometimes facebook works, when it works it says redirecting... in the facebook tab and it didn't show that up when facebook didn't work. Screenshot of facebook : http://i.imgur.com/ZQgmsdX.jpg

Thanks in advance.

My company has a custom developed ticketing system and of course its developed for IE but none of the engineers like IE. We all use and want to continue using Firefox. One of the sections in the ticketing system has a spot for links to local files on a shared drive. I have created the link and it points to a word document. That hyperlink works fine in IE but it does nothing when clicked in Firefox.

Of course the dev team is giving me the age old line ".NET doesn't play nice with Firefox... developed for IE.... blah blah use IE."

Surely creating a link to a local file like excel or word or even a directory is simple idea and should be accomplished somehow with FireFox right? Can anyone shed some light on this and give a suggestion how to make this work?

For example: N:\KNOWLEDGE BASE\Cisco Price List\2012\pricelistaugust2012.xlsx i am trying to share with a hyperlink like:

Looking for any suggestions on how to make this work. Thank you so much!!

Why do I persistently get this particular script error that makes my browser hang for dozens of minutes?

chrome://global/content/bindings/tabbox.xml:73

It has nothing to do with any of the extensions or plug-ins I have activated. The only ones I ever have activated almost all of the time are Status-4-Evar in the Extensions category, and Adobe Acrobat in terms of Plug-ins. Both of these are up to date. It's also not about hardware acceleration, I don't believe, because I've disabled that feature in my options.

No, the error seems to pop up when I'm dealing with "busy" webpages with a lot of graphics and such. I've tried all of the little tricks they have here in the help, and it's still not stoping the script. I use to get a similar perisistent script error on older versions of Firefox.

A little help, por favor, to solve this once and for all, because I know I'm far from the only one experiencing this.
