I have reverted to 3.5 because the latest versions of FF include some nonsense called plugin-container. FF was brilliant prior to the plugin-container but now it is noticeably slower.

Are there any early versions of 3.6 without the plugin-container available for download.

Can someone fix the plugin-container nonsense. FF was perfect prior to the plugin-container

It's been about a week since I last manage to download from Mediafire. When I click on a Mediafire link, the download link does not show although the page has finish loading. Refreshing the page repeatedly does not help and I've tried the solution to delete all cookies as stated on a similar thread (http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/673873) but it doesn't work either. After deleting all the cookies, clicking on the Myfiles link brings me to Mediafire's main webpage instead. Are there any ways to solve this? =( Please help!

Whenever I download something, especially smaller files such as a .jpg or .torrent, Firefox scans the download for viruses. In theory this is a good thing. In practice, at least for me, it means my browser is locked up for as long as 2 minutes (average is closer to about 10 seconds) while it scans the file that I have ZERO concern over a virus in the first place. Now, it's entirely possible that because I'm not a gaming nerd my computer is "slow" by elitist standards (2gHz is slow?! 2mB RAM is slow?!), but that is neither here nor there; I want this "service" gone and I want it gone now.

Hello,

this css style, which works fine with IE, does not display a colored scrollbar in Firefox:

BODY {

  scrollbar-base-color:#F06F6F;
  scrollbar-track-color:#D04F4F;
  scrollbar-face-color:#C03F3F;
  scrollbar-highlight-color:#C03F3F;
  scrollbar-3d-light-color:#C03F3F;
  scrollbar-dark-shadow-color:#C03F3F;
  scrollbar-shadow-color:#C03F3F;
  scrollbar-arrow-color:#E06F6F;

}

Are colored scrollbars not supported with Firefox, or do I have to change something within the code (it should also work with IE afterwards).

Thank you, newnexo

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!
