How can I set the New Tab Page so that it only shows my Bookmarks (Like chrome) and not the history ?

Hello, I've recently installed Firefox on my new PC after giving Chrome yet another chance (I've had bad experiences with it) and after seeing crashes everywhere I just gave up. I'm a long-time Firefox user but I've never been able to figure out how to prevent the New Tab Page from showing the Browser's History. Is there a way to make Firefox show Bookmarks and Folders on the NTP instead ? Also, is there a way to make the Bookmarks bar show on the New Tab Page ONLY ?

The new tab button disappeared from my navigation menu. No changes or upgrades had been made. Whereas all the support topics suggest going to Customize Toolbar, the new tab button no longer exists there either. It was there in the morning, gone in the evening for no apparent reason. The + does exist at the end of series of tabs, but not in the navigation toolbar, and the add tab + does NOT exist anywhere on a page there there is only one tab. I do have HIDE TAB BAR WITH ONE TAB 1.1 but have had it for weeks and the new tab button was always there. How can I restore the New Tab button to the Navigation bar if it is not available in the Customize Toolbar selection?

There is no "manage account" option for sync on any of my devices, and I can't set up any new sync devices. How do I fix this?

Since none of my devices have a "manage account" selection under Sync (or Sync set up), there's no way to get or reset my recovery key. I only see "Set up Firefox sync" and "Pair a device". Everything else leads to a dead end without access to a recovery key or being able to manage the account.

Firefox has been "NOT RESPONDING" in title bar and cursor spinning when I have multiple tabs open. Is there a fix to this?

In the last couple of weeks, I noticed that when I had multiple tabs open--e.g. 4 or more, here is what happens:

1-when I am typing (even now as I type this), the cursor frequently stops for a few seconds and that blue circling symbol shows up and it says Mozilla Firefox (not responding). This processes for a few seconds and then it stops. This keeps happening ongoing every time I am typing! it can be very annoying and frustrating and hard to get any online work done...e.g. ordering a product, trying to scroll through and read an article online, etc.

2-I have tried closing out the whole program and all the tabs and starting over again with creating new tabs and it happens again.

3-The only time it stopped is when Firefox crashed a few weeks ago and I submitted a crash report, and it went away for a time, and then it started happening again out of the blue.

I use Windows 7, and use Firefox version 23.0.1

If you have any questions that I can answer to help you diagnose the problem, please ask.

thanking you in advance for your help in resolving this.

have re-installed and repaired my existing Adobe XI, but I cannot print any PDF documents. I keep getting an error message when I try to print. I have checked to see if my Adobe plugin was up to date, and it apparently is. When I try to open a PDF file, first, it asks me to download (or save) the file, and then when I open up the downloaded file and try to print, I get this error message:

"Cannot load library DLBAPRB.DLL. Using Defaults. Error: 126"

Locking as duplicate of /question/971280

I would like to know why FIREFOX doesn't act like a native mac app when it comes to the red-close button. Or maybe it does but I am not sure how to activate it.

Basically when pressing the red X it closes and loses all saved session information. Would be good to have it act like, say, Safari, where it saves the session information and just runs in the background instead of actually closing.

I've tried all the suggested solutions in: What to do if you can't download or save files. I can't download from Yahoo, but can from Gmail. I've tested using copies of the same file on both. Someone suggested checking malware, but I've run a scan and don't have a problem, and as I say, i can use Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. Someone asked for a screen shot, who knows why.
