I am trying to convert to the Mozilla (Firefox) start page for my home page. I cannot follow the instructions given because my default home page in options is Yahoo. (I don't want that.) Can you give me the address of the Start page? I know how to make it my home page after I have navigated there.

I am one of those users who prefer the tabs below the toolbars. In version 29.0 there does not appear to be any solution to getting them there. I have searched all the menu bars and gone the route of changing browser.tabs.tabsontop to false. Nothing has worked so far and I'd hate to load an older version of Firefox just for tabs. Has anyone else used version 29.0 and solved this dilemma successfully?

Thanks for any help or advice...ahava1313

Hopefully someone who uses Firefox on a personal desktop computer that is not connected to a network can answer this question:

In Internet Explorer, I know that unchecking 'the Automatically Detect Settings' option in the LAN settings under the Connections tab allows webpages to load faster.

In Firefox, there are four Internet Setting Configurations: 'No Proxy,' 'Auto Detect Proxy Settings For This Network,' 'Use System Proxy Settings,' and 'Manual Proxy Configuration,' 'Auto-Detect' being the default option.

1. Which of these four settings allows webpages to load as quickly as they would in IE by unchecking 'the Automatically Detect Settings' option and what is the order of the other three configurations from 'fastest' to slowest?'

2. Under 'Cached Web Content,' should the 'Override Automatic Cache Management' option be checked? If so, how many MB should the cache be limited to? Right now, the option is unchecked and set to 350MB.

Some webpages are loading slowly so perhaps the above settings need to be changed.

Also, is there an 'Email Notification' option at the top/bottom of each thread created so that I know when someone has responded?

-Much appreciated.

Is there a tools option in ff28 when changes or adjustments is needed. I have noticed that support advice refers a lot to things that aren't there. If I am too much of a newbie and missed the obvious, my apologies. Otherwise please help. It would be a good idea to have a list of changes to options available for new migrants to firefox because it would be gutting to revert to IE or chrome. Thank you.

After every time I close the internet, upon re-opening it I have to receive a one time pass code from a website or enter my email ID and password (even though I previously clicked Keep Me Signed In for 2 Weeks) or answer security questions then confirm for the 15th time that this is my private computer. I've checked the privacy settings every time and they are correct. I never had this problem with Internet Explorer. The problem began 2 weeks ago when I switched to Firefox.

It seems to me that every time Firefox updates the browser, there is some kind of design thing that pisses off a bunch of people, myself included. You seem to have a sizable part of your fan base that has spent all the time they want to spend on getting the controls, the gui experience just right. We are told that nobody forces us to use the new browser and here is the link to the now unsecure version. I would like to suggest whenever you have an update that is required to fix a security flaw, include a ticker option to include any new skins that might be involved. You surely do not have to change the layout to something that folks are possibly going to hate just to fix a security flaw. Let us make the decision on whether we want to try out a new design. If some of us want to try the new design we should be able to click yes, I'll try it. If we don't like it we can go back and download the new version again and not click yes this time. Firefox has been my browser of choice for years now due to the fact of options, options, options. Completely customizable to a larger base of people, but when you force a design change on people that is more properly called a skin, you lose and we do too.

The latest version of FF 30 became so unpopular, at least, I really feel repugnant ! 1. the border among different tabs are not clear, even worse the unselcted tab titles are not easy to read as they are displayed not apparently as previous FF versions, such as FF28. In stead, the Mozilla website offered hundreds of colorful skins, weird buttons for us !!! Sorry, I really do not get it. I REALLY DO NO KNOW why you developers offer those useless skins for us !

2. The most favourite function of the status bar is lost, and could not appear again !!! My habit is using upper tool bar for the management of tabs, the status bar for the management of webpages. In stead, the Mozilla website only told us, based on the safety consideration, it is not safe to use status bar, it is for our users safe concern.

Let me tell you the REAL REASON I chose FIREFOX: Concise, Fast, Designable. Not because it can change skin color !!!

I have read some other users complain about the stupid and disgusting FF 30 version. And one of your developer claimed that you developers have discussed and changed those features of FF seriously. And in the name of safety, you developers did those. OK, let me tell you what I think : 1. The customer's feeling is always the MOST IMPORTANT THING for a product !!! You developer did not give us a choice, and just "think for us" and removed those feactures in the latest version, and offered us a bunch of rubbish skins for us to make fun and hope us would enjoy your new product.

2. If you developers think you CAN CHANGE our customers using habits and TEACH us what is good and what is right, I would tell you I prefer to change to some other kinds of browser.

3. Do you guys really think it is necessary to update so FAST ?! The main success for the FF is because it is designable as the add-on feature. Countless add-on were released for various users to meet their needs, that is REAL REAL big advantages than the IE. At that time, I started to use FF. But your developers should aware: We are playing browser and add-on to enjoy internet, NOT browser playing us !!! We have fun by using FF + addon, NOT like fix compatible problems everyday about the FF + addon for fun !!! So, I really really hope you developers would think about this problem seriously !!!

At present, in order to prevent from I was confused by the your new releasing version of FF which is quite different from the old version. I have uninstallled the FF, and downloaded the old version (FF 28) which I was used to. Your developers may say that is not good, that is not safe, and that is ... Stop, I just DO NOT CARE !!! If one day I really find a problem with FF browser, I just uninstall it and try some other browsers, I WILL NOT CHANGE MY HABIT TO MEET YOUR EXPECTATION !!!

THANKS & GOOD LUCK

Why can't I contact You with ACTUAL FEEDBACK? Why does Firefox Vers 28 allow me to download complete webpage files but Vers 30 does not? Plugins, Addons, Internet Security are all the same on both systems. I can download the files in IE but not Firefox. What gives? I use NoScript, Better Privacy, Ghostery, and Kaspersky Internet Security configured the same on both systems. The only reason I checked is because on certain sites, I can't download files and the view completely. Firefox Vers 30 will download but not create a complete html link in the directory so that I can open and view the file.
