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

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

How to add Custom Search Engines to Search Bar

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 downloaded some extensions that you have to open to use. The problem is that I can't figure out how to open them. They are not on/can't be put on the toolbar, are not in the "tools" tab, the only way I even know they are on my computer is by going to Tools > Addons > Extensions, and I can't even open them from there.

This happened

Not sure how often

I have two profiles for firefox. But sometimes Firefox starts with the first active, sometimes with the second. The question is: How can I force firefox to use the profile "default" as the default profile on startup when there is no other instance running? When I want to use a second profile in parallel I use the command "firefox -P --no-profile" to start the profile selector.

My computer was attacked by malware and could not boot. Tried upgrading Windows XP but can't because it needs a working Windows install. Can't re-install because there is not enough space on the HDD. So I replaced the drive and got Windows 7 working on it.

Now the Firefox question: how do I get my bookmarks on the old drive into my new one? I can access my files on the old drive by putting in in an external HD enclosure. But i don't know where to look for my bookmarks database folder so that I could move it to my new drive.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I have years of bookmarks in the old drive.

Thanks Paul

Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Why is this saying this and how do I fix it so i can see the site I want to see. It has let me see the site I want before...just did this today.
