When the Print... dialogue comes up in Firefox, it shows that it will print to PaperPort. My system default printer is a Lexmark network printer. I checked my computer's Devices and Printers, and the Lexmark is checked as the default. Firefox is the only application that prints to PaperPort as a default and only since a recent update to Firefox 29.0.1. I would like the Lexmark to be the default printer for Firefox, as it is for all my other applications. It is annoying to have to manually select the correct printer each time I want to print.

I used to make a backup or saved copy of my favorites with internet explorer on my XP computer and the result was an easily opened list of all my links in order. Recently I installed firefox and I now tried to do the same thing. I did a backup to my bookmarks and could not open the file initially. After some searching I was able to open the file with several programs but all of the results were useless. I kept getting a document with tons of data from the extreme left to right side of the screen in no format or in a usable list. So how can I get the backup or a saved copy in microsoft windows works (not word) processor like all my other windows XP documents are in?

I have used Expedia many times in the past without difficulty. Recently, however, whenever I try to search for flights on Expedia, I get a message that says "Sorry, we're having a problem on our end. Please try your search again later". But I'm able to search without problem from other computers. I've cleared my cache, cookies, and browsing history. I'm using the most recent version of Firefox. I had let some people borrow my laptop recently to check gmail accounts, but I've logged them out of everything. Any suggestions?

My home page is set for Mozilla Firefox Start Page, but when I start Firefox, I am automatically redirected to: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?shva=1#inbox, which takes me to my Gmail account instead of my home page. I have tried resetting the default, but nothing has changed. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but that didn't work either. I have checked my computer for any suspicious programs, but I can't seem to find any. Is this a malware that i can't find? This has been occurring for about 3 weeks now and it is very frustrating. I don't want to automatically open my e-mail. Can you help me fix this problem. Thank you.

Various websites I regularly use are no longer working properly in this latest version of Firefox. When I go to my bank website and click on a link to give me a printable version of my statements, nothing happens. The javascript is javascript:printVersion()

I am at a loss because it looks like javascript is enabled by all the measures I can see. Anyone know what the issue would be?

just updated to firefox 29.0.1. now i can't highlight and print a selection. I can highlight a section, but when i hit the print button it goes to a print preview page, the highlighting is gone, it shows the full web page(on which i can't highlight), then when i hit print again i get the print properties menu, but it won't let me choose "selection" in print range- obviously because my "selection" disappears when i go to print preview page. Can anyone out there help? I would sure appreciate any tips! Thanks.

I have tried for over 2 weeks, deleting registry entries in safe mode, changing browser settings, deleting addons, I have tried EVERY solution Google searches have to offer and this thing keeps coming back! All the solutions only work until a reboot happens or a few hours later. Is there any other way that I haven't found yet that will kill this thing besides FDisk?

When I run an online application, such as Horde Mail, I see no buttons, nor words that are clickable. Instead I see a small box where the button, or clickable-word, should be. The small box is rectangular, is in outline, and has four tiny characters in the middle. What are these? How do I convert them to the buttons they are supposed to be?

Hi, since I updated to FF 29, my browser has gotten unbearably laggy/choppy. If I type, letters appear slower than I hit the keys, and if I move my mouse over a link it takes a second or two before the link overlay effect (underline, highlight etc) appears, same goes for all buttons, tabs, menus etc. If I enable hardware acceleration, the choppyness goes away, but I get a different problem in exchange. With hardware acceleration on, the text and sometimes images on my screen occasionally get really blurry. This does not happen with hardware acceleration off. How can I fix these or atleast one of these issues so I can comfortably use Firefox again?

Sorry folks for asking a "dumb question" but here goes:

( preamble: I have started to read: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/995356?esab=a&as=aaq but that was for IE - so I ask myself why is it being asked in the Firefox forum, but anyway.....

I have seen these "weird" icons in the address bar too. Someone asked: What were they BEFORE you updated/upgraded to the new version? Fair enough question, but maybe like me the person didn't bother to note them and only noticed the "change" to a new icon and investigated (or tried to).

I have also seen a "Lego block" in there as well. Dunno what it means, but I hope nothing bad. end preamble )

Well folks, I am using FF 29.0.1 and I too have noticed this "Grey padlock" appear when I am in/on GMAIL too. The other thread was YAHOO, and I didn't want to contaminate their thread.

This site is a green padlock.

LUCKILY I worked out how to get the "View certificate" to work and now am stuck on how to attach the image. (I don't come here that often and so am not familiar with how to do things. Every forum is different.)

It looks ok, and it says it is from Google, but....... I am maybe missing something.

Not panicking yet, but help would be appreciated.
