I'm tired of wasting paper when a job prints pages of hidden text. I need a hot key to bring up the 'print preview' so I can restrict the printing to specific pages and not the junk that I don't want.

In the past I managed to add a 'Custom Search Engine' to Firefox's 'Search Bar' (Windows Version) by just right-clicking that site's own 'search bar' and choosing 'Add to search bar'. I had no third party plugin installed to do this. It was provided by Firefox itself.

Or am I mixing up this feature with Google's 'Add Custom Search Button' ?

Anyhow, is there a way to add a 'Custom Search Engine' to Firefox's 'Search Bar' from any website, WITHOUT having to:

  • install an add-on (like: Add to Search Bar 2.0)
  • acquire search engines on 'mycroft.mozdev.org'
  • acquire search engines from 'Manage/Add Search Engines' from the drop-down menu in the search bar ?

Thanks!

I have dual monitors and occasionally set my 2nd monitor as the primary when testing software. On reverting back to use my 1st monitor as primary (using display settings) I find FF disregards the changed setting and always opens on the second monitor. Reboot does not resolve the problem. All other apps open in primary.

Any way to resolve this?

A couple days ago my Firefox stopped opening. I click on the icon a million times and nothing happens. I can't think of any reason why it would suddenly do this. When I tried to delete it and redownload it, a box popped up saying I needed to close Firefox before proceeding. But it wasn't open so I had nothing to close, and consequently I couldn't download it again!

How to stop "Werbung - Mozilla firefox" advertising in Mail.com page

After starting Firefox 3.5.11, opening mail.com, and clicking on the username field (to enter my username), I started receiving a pop-up titled "Werbung - Mozilla Firefox." My operating system is Windows XP. The problem described below does not appear in Windows Explorer.

I believe Werbung is German for advertising, but I am not certain.

One of the ads that appears in the popup window says "congratulations! You have won and ipad..." To close the popup, you have to go to a "daily contest winner" page. Using task manager closes firefox.

Across the bottom of the screen, just above the "Start" button, I noticed "addclient.uimserve.net" I do not know if this is related.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this nuisance?

I have one PC where the "folder view" is working as it should when browsing an ftp site / contents. Where you can click the last modified heading to re-arrange the list. This is really great. But on the other PCs (over 30) I get a standard list. if you look at the following article and check the screen shots you will see what I mean by "folder view". How do I get this to work on all our PCs? https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Accessing+FTP+servers?s=ftp&as=s

Often when I am typing a private message on facebook and i have been typing for a while this "runtime error" happens and closes my program.

The message that comes up is titled: Microsoft Visual C ++ Runtime library

and in the body of the message it says: Runtime Error! Program: c:\programfile (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I should do. I would be ever so obliged!

I downloaded the check4change automatic refreshing feature but do not see it in my tool bar. Ive used it before on a different computer, so the way I understand it, I should highlight a section of the page I want refreshed, find the Check4Change feature in my tool bar and indicate my preferences in time, noise, etc. How do I get the option to appear on my tool bar though? Thank you, Jessie
