IThank you in advance for any help provided.

Typing within my gmail has been painfully slow for the last few days, with it sometimes taking up to 10 seconds for what has been typed to appear. Initially I thought it maybe a virus affecting the whole computer, however having checked typind speed in Word documents, then my Gmail on Chrome it would seem this issue is localised to just when I use my gmail within Firefox. The typind speed of this message is perfectly fine!!!

I would welcome any advice on how to fix this, as Gmail is a huge part of my life and Firefox is very much my preferred browser.

Phil.

why use xmarks when already can sync bookmarks?-- for possible QuickFox notes app, &does QF provide offline access?

Hi, i am seeking a lightweight note-taking app that will sync across my windows XP and my Mac OS X (yosemite), and also even my Android phone if possible, and that will provide offline access. In my search, i found a great Chrome browser-based one, but i don't have Chrome nor do i prefer it-- Firefox is the only one i like to use in any system. (I use FF on win, mac, and my phone.) Okay, so in my search for a firefox-based one, i found QuickFox, and in the info for it says, “if you already have either a bookmarks synchronization add-on (e.g.: XMarks) or a file synchronization software (e.g.: Dropbox, SugarSync, Syncplicity), your notes will be synchronized automatically, no more setups! *** It is highly recommended to use Xmarks to synchronize QuickFox Notes ***”

This has me confused-- can anyone please explain? You see, i already have Dropbox installed on all 3 of my systems. (I use OpenOffice now and sync via dropbox between mac and win, but its way too cumbersome/heavyweight/sluggish... i love the lightweight &instantly-syncing Notes app on my Mac but it is not available on my Win XP...) I don't understand if the QuickFox app would use m Dropbox to sync in the same way (?), or what, but it seems that they are recommending this “Xmarks”s the best option-- and what i don't understand is: why use Xmarks,when you can simply use the builtin Firefox sync to sync your bookmarks? (which is what is already do.) What advantage(s) does Xmarks have over just plain old firefox sync for these bookmarks?

(and while i'm here asking things-- would QuickFox be the best Note-app for my needs? (eg. Very simple, quick, win+mac(+hopefully android too)-syncable, and, very importantly-- with offline access? (ie., for when my internet is down,which happens LOTS, it would still let me take notes on my computers, and would then sync when the internet was back up again)

Thanks so much for your help!

(btw, the quote above: "Be nice. Our volunteers are Mozilla users just like you, who take the time out of their day to help." is great, and i think every forum should have it! It always amazes me how many help-seekers can be so rude and demanding, when usually the help-givers are so kind and generous with their time!)

I just re-did Mozilla to what it was in the beginning and everything disappeared. I want Firefox toolbar back I want Norton toolbar back I want the bigger text back...why are the text so small (right now even on my mail) I can't read it without magnifying glass

and while you are helping me...please tell me how I get rid of a black page with the logo American Megatrend that comes up instead of my desktop when I open the computer. I don't know where it's coming from and I certainly didn't download it. Does anyone know what it is? Thank you for help

Can't find any instructions for getting thumbnails to appear on new tabs. Only thing in Help is how to restore ones that are missing, and those instructions are totally worthless in my case. Ever since this "feature" was first available, it has never worked for me.

In relation to Firefox for Android. I don't like panels so how do I get my homepage/startup/newtab page set up? I want to open up Firefox and see the website I selected, not a panel listing sites, needing extra clicks. I succeeded in removing the panels in the windows version and getting my homepage back but in Android I'm stumped.

I intended to delete Chrome once all my data was saved in Firefox but now I cannot because none of my saved log on usernames and passwords I have saved in Chrome imported to Firefox. Is there any way to fix this? I have followed all the directions. When going to Tools/Options/Security/Saved Passwords - they are not there.

I can't play any videos which are now HTML5 or the newer Flash. It's frustrating that sites change my format so I can't even watch my own videos. Especially on Photobucket. Even Facebook is changing up so the videos are choppy, yet Chrome and Opera play them fine because they run Flash 18.0.0.160.

Hi

I am having the typical "This Connection is Untrusted" message visiting a website.

When clicking in technical details, instead of having the button "Add exception", i have this message


XXXXX uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)


How can i do to trust this certificate? I have tried to add an exception, as explained in different threads, but still not working

Thanks
