When I am in Fullscreen mode, the toolbar at the top disappears and only appears when you mouse-over the top of the screen.

Is there a setting somewhere so that when I go to fullscreen mode, I can choose to keep the address bar, tab bar and the bookmarks bar visible (not auto hide)?

I seem to be in the beta channel. Which I am finding that for my busy lifestyle, has too many incompatability issues with add ons and extensions. I don't have time to keep finding and waiting for new solutions and upgrades from your developers. I just upgraded to firefox 7 and lost some add ons that I'd rather still have.

1. can I just go back to firefox 6.3.4 or wherever I was

2. should I switch to some "slower" upgrade channel, and where would I find this?

This has happened on several different websites, in several different contexts. I enter the information but then receive a "Please provide your name and email address" or "That's not a properly formatted email address" message (depending on whatever the form's code provides for error messages for blank required fields). I've double checked, of course, and the text is entered correctly. This did occur once with autofill, the other times I entered the text myself.

I am using Firefox on my 27" IMac as the default browser, and it works well. I need it to default to a more zoomed in setting. I know I can zoom in using "Command +", but I am compelled to do this after every screen. How can I change the default screen setting for a larger display of Firefox every time, consistent with the large and fine pixeled display at 2560x1440?

I am using Firefox 7.0, Mac OSX 10.7.1, on a mid 2010 27" IMac with an I7 cpu and 16Gb of RAM.

Thanks!

Why is Firefox so slow after the upgrade to OS X Lion? Safari opens pages immediately, like Firefox on Windows, but on Lion it can easily take up to 30 seconds.

Running OS X Lion 10.7.1 Mac mini early 2009, 4GB RAM. No other problems except both Firefox and Chrome are incredibly slow opening web pages when compared to the same two browsers in Windows or to Safari in OS X.

This happens whether other applications are running or not. Internet speed has not changed (tested 6 Mbps), not using proxies, etc. Yes, I did test after Quitting all other apps. It makes no difference.

I have recently moved from PC to Mac. I can't figure out on the Mac how to edit bookmarks. In other words, I have a URL I use to log into applications for work, but depending on the available servers, that first URL gets rerouted to a different URL by the time I'm accessing the application. Only at that time am I able to save the bookmark, so it's saving the wrong URL to launch the next time. I'd like to edit the bookmark so I can put the right URL in the bookmark. How do I do that? Also - is Firefox synch available between PC and Mac? I don't see sync as an option on my PC's firefox.

In the old firefox, if you typed a word into the navigation bar it would automatically add the .com extension and redirect you to that page. However now, it automatically redirects you to a google search page. How do I get that old feature back?

For example, if I were to type "cnn" into the webpage address field, it would automatically go to cnn.com. Now, it goes to a google search page which functions just the s… (read more)

As a web designer, I've used xara dropdown menus on a number of sites and they've looked fine until Firefox 7; now the menus have shifted to the left. Can you tell me a workaround? The menus are fine in other browser. Thx.

Some of these sites have used xara menus (which are javascript-based) for years without problems. Since I've used Firefox as my default browser since its first release, so I would have recognized the problem right away if it were happening before version 7. Also, I run Firefox on my iMac with Lion; I don't know if the menu-shift problem also is occurring on Windows machine with the new version of the browser. Sure hope you can tell me a quick workaround that I can install on the affected sites.

I installed Firefox 7.0.1 on a MacBook Air and an iMac, both running Lion as the OS. The iMac is fine, but every time I start Firefox on the MacBook Air two tabs start up -- one is my home page and the other is the Mozilla Firefox Startup Page. I can't find any Preference to eliminate the Startup Page and it's really annoying to have to always delete it. What am I missing?

Here's the message: The operation can’t be completed because some items had to be skipped. For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure “Locked” is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again.

I'm using a new Imac and I guess that they're asking to check something (in finder?) but nothing works
