The issue reads "transferring data from ping.chartwell.net. The system hangs indefinitely. I've never had this problem in IE. It's especially troublesome when I'm purchasing something and after giving my credit card info etc- nothing happens. Hopefully there is a solution to this since in other respects I prefer Firefox to IE. This is an intolerable situation, however, and if I can't resolve it I will have to recert to IE. thank you. Windows XP.

Hello. This is a family laptop which means children/grandchildren sometimes use it without direct supervsion. Can I disable the private browsing feature or if not is there anyway that I can keep an eye on what sites they may have visited? Private browsing is a good idea ifyou are buying a secret present or something but I am unable to directly supervise them all the time and I do like to check up on what they have been doing. Can anyone help?

Since a recent update (either for Firefox or Thunderbird, don't remember which), links in my Thunderbird emails will not open in Firefox. I can't even open the Thunderbird "help" link. In desperation, I installed Opera, and the email links work perfectly well. There seems to be some sort of disconnect between Thunderbird and Firefox.

Since yesterday, when I switched from Comcast to AT&T as my broadband internet connection, I have not been able to attach files to my Yahoo mail messages using Mozilla Firefox. I don't have this problem when using Internet Explorer, but my default browser is Firefox by choice. Is this a Yahoo issue or a Firefox issue? Can you help me resolve it?

I wish to set my page size one size smaller than the default.

The result of ctr - (zoom out) is exactly what I want (it decreases the size of text AND images). However this effect only lasts for the page I am currently on, as soon as I navigate to a different page (or just refresh the page I am at), it reverts back to the default size.

I looked at Tools->Options->Content, however that deals only with text size (besides it looks only certain pages are affected by this setting anyway).

In other words, how (or where) do I set my browser to automatically decrease size or 'Zoom Out' for all the pages I visit in order not to set it manually for every page every time.

Regards

PS. If this setting can be applied for individual users (I have a multi user PC) that would be even better, although I would be very grateful if I could just set it.

PPS. Additional information. I just discovered it seems to be working now in normal browsing but not in private browsing, my apologies for the omission.

I have a new Windows 7 machine (Firefox 3.6.12) and want to move my bookmarks from my old XP machine (Firefox 3.6.12). I've read the help pages but find it incomprehensible. I don't want my whole profile moved (not that I could figure out how to do that), just my bookmarks. PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO DO THAT IN SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS. Thank you.

Hi,

I wrote the below message on 12/9 but did not get an answer. Please help!


Hi,

For certain Web pages, when I press ctrl-P, the complete Web page prints just fine! However, for certain other Web pages, when I press ctrl-P, only the beginning of the Web page prints!

I do not have such problems with Internet Explorer -- and I am getting tired of copying and pasting the URLs into Internet Explorer to get it to print completely. I would prefer to do all my work in Firefox without having to switch back and forth with Internet Explorer.

Operating system: Vista, service pack 2 Firefox: version 3.6.12

Please help. Thanks.

I am using Firefox 3.6.12. Ever since I downloaded the latest update, whenever a pdf opens in a Firefox window, Firefox tries to "tag" the document. I get a popup dialog box titled "Reading Untagged Document" which states: "This x-page document is untagged and must be prepared for reading. While the document is being analyzed, your assistive technology will not be able to interact with this application." There are choices for Reading Order Options and Reading Mode Options, plus a checkbox for "Always use the settings from the Reading Preferences (Do Not show this dialog again). Finally, there are buttons to Start or Cancel. Have found I can also use esc key to cancel.
