I have the latest Firefix update, and I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. It's annoying, specifically for games because I have to make sure the cursor is to the right (by a certain amount) of the item I wish to click. This issue is only in Firefox, I have tried in Internet Explorer *shudder* and there is no problem, I do not have any web browsers currently installed.

I have read a lot of threads and pages on Firefox not saving passwords. I do not have "Private Browsing" on. I have cookies and history saved "until they expire". I have "save passwords" checked. I have no exceptions.

When I go to enter a password, no little window pops up to ask me to save it. However, a little key _does_ appear. But the key is greyed out and clicking it does nothing. It doesn't "un-hide" the password saver.

I have disabled all add-ons, restarted and tried it again. It was still the same. The sites are all ones that function perfectly well on my desktop computer, but not on my laptop. The laptop is the one that will not save passwords.

It is a Samsung running Windows 7.

How do I prompt Firefox to ask to save a password. Once I say "no" it never asks again (but now I would like it to remember the password for certain sites). I have also changed my password on some sites (while on another computer) and I cannot find out how to get Firefox to remember new passwords. I'm using Firefox 6.0.1 on a mac. I'm not using private browsing. I have 'remember passwords for sites' clicked and there are no exceptions. I've tried removing cookies, history, looking at page info.

Before Firefox updated to 6, my user ID's and passwords that I had saved or ask the website to remember were always available. If I shut off the browser and later started a new session, my ID's were still on the website when I went to them. After yesterday's, 8/31/2011, update to 6, when I close the browser after a session, the ID's and passwords are gone and must be re-entered. This happens only when I'm surfing as a 'standard' user. If I surf the web as an administrator, all my saved info is still there.

To understand better i'll show in images:

1) Change these bars

2) Change navigation toolbar

  • Navigation toolbar is in menu bar, because menus can't be dragged

3) And it should look something like this

  • Is it possible?

Solution would be moving menu bar to right side of the orange mozilla icon and under it would be a tab strip, but i don't know how!

P.s OK i got that by just unclicking menu bar and clicking tabs on top, but menu bar only shows while Alt pressed - how to freeze Alt function?

Using Firefox well over a year with a Lexmark printer. Switched to an Epson printer yesterday and used the Epson install disk as instructed. Tried to print 2 different items from the internet tonight and got a msg that the printer could not communicate with the PC. Called Epson who had me print a test om Notepad and print it. Printed fine. Epson said it is not a problem with the printer but rather a conflict with Internet Explorer (which I no longer use at all). Can you advise. The Epson shows as Default in my control panel and I have disconnected and reconnected my USB cable, the printer power cable and have restarted my PC.

I've been using web browsers for almost 20 years and this is one of the strangest problems I've encountered. When some Firefox pages are launched that are supposed to be straight forward English language pages, they are displayed as an entire page densely filled, top to bottom, full width, with tiny Chinese characters. I have tried to troubleshoot this by: disabling all add-ons, especially translators; clean uninstall/reinstall of the current version of Firefox; rolling back to previous versions of Firefox - 1st FF7, right now FF6.01; clean uninstall/reinstall of my graphics card driver; rolling back to previous versions of my graphics card driver; system restore back to before this problem started; run deep scans, multiple times, of each of the six anti-malware apps I have on my computer, including root kit scans. None of them have solved the problem.

Strangest part of it is that it seems to occur randomly. For example, in my latest Firefox session, I re-enabled a number of add-ons after disabling them as part of my ongoing troubleshooting. When I clicked on Options for all the others except the Groowe toolbar, I got normal English pages. But for Groowe toolbar options I received a full page of Chinese characters like those shown below.This happens pretty much every time Firefox session but not for all pages; only 1-3 of them per session. The rest are normal.

I have yet to detect a pattern of when it will happen. A given web page may display normally or it may display as all Chinese characters like this sample of the page just displayed for Groowe Options. The last time I set Groowe Options (= the last time I reinstalled Firefox - yesterday) it displayed normally.

This paste of the first few lines of the Groowe Options page is a bigger font than the one displayed on the web page it was copied from. I don't know how to make it paste the same size font, but I think you'll get the picture from this. Now just imagine tiny versions of these lines completely covering the page display -- and I do mean completely - no spaces, no blank lines, just non-stop characters like this but much smaller font.

It is quite a common event to send friends a lead into a web address for interesting articles or videos (Youtube urls). To do thjis means you do a copy and paste into the Email. When I was using Aol the address presented itself in bold type which allowed the recipient to just click on the address to be connected instead of doing a copy and paste into the address bar. Is there a way this can be done in Firefox?

I recently downloaded Firefox 6, and Facebook was working fine but all of a sudden yesterday it started loading all content down the center column instead of on the left & right side. I noticed on their Help wall, that others are having the same problem - I tried clearing the cookies & cache but this did not help. Also, my facebook profiles on other browsers are using FF 6 and are loading just fine. Any ideas?

I recently purchased a new computer, and now my website (www.tree.org) shows in italics! It is probably not the fault of the computer (ASUS 1215B), because the problem only appears on Firefox. I upgraded to the latest version (6.0),and it still shows in italics. In Google Chrome the pages display correctly. However, my desktop computer, running the same versions of Firefox, displays correctly. I thought my font file might be corrupted (Goudy Old Style), so I copied a known good font source (from my other computer that displays correctly) -- no change. I have tried clearing cache.

  All I can figure out is that there is something between the ASUS processing and Firefox that is causing this.  I have written also to ASUS, but this problem baffles me.  Any ideas?

Is anyone experiencing problems with McAfee SiteAdvisor, latest version, and Firefox v6? I have to disable SiteAdvisor so that Firefox will run properly. One thing I have noticed is, that with the current version of SiteAdvisor installed, SiteAdvisor is listed in the "Add-ons" in two places ... as an extension and as a plug-in. I don't know if SiteAdvisor was listed twice for previous versions. So .... my main question is .... is McAfee SiteAdvisor an "extension" or a "plug-in" for Firefox ? SiteAdvisor, as an extension, is showing the version of "3.4.0" and as a plug-in the version shown is 3.4.0.135. The current version of SiteAdvisor is v3.4.0.143. Please advise and thanks.
