My albine worked with the last version before I upgraded to 17. I did not save that version and would like to go back to it. I did save firefox 9 and that is what I am using now but I believe you have a later version that i could use. What was the version before 17 and where can I find it? I hate to go back to windows explorer unless I have to. You should let us know what will not work with your upgrades before we start them. Had I known Albine would not work I wouldn't have upgraded.

Thanks.

is there any FF own controls or external plugin which would allow me *full*, comfortable (via dialog panels), interactive control of Search Bar providers like, say, Opera browser does (and always did)?

for some reasons, the current FF UI only allows me to edit a 'keyword', or I am missing something?

When I use javascript to change font/color/size or inner html, it works temporarily only. Changes does not remain permanent. e.g.

<title>Showing Charset</title> <style type="text/css"> .head_class {color:red;font-size:60;font-family:impact;} </style>

<script type="text/JavaScript"> function chngFont() { var el2 = document.getElementById('myfont'); var sfont = el2.value; document.getElementById('head').className = 'head_class'; document.getElementById('head').innerHTML = sfont; // alert(document.seefont.fonttosee.value); } </p><p></script>

Charset

<form name="seefont"> <input type="text" id="myfont" name="fonttosee" size="20" value="arial"> <button onclick="chngFont()">Change font</button> </form>


When I click the button class head_class is applied to heading id "head" and even the text is change to font name entered but just momentarily. If I use alert in the function, the changes remain only till alert is on the screen. The same code works in IE forever ( The changes remain permanent. What are the settings in firefox to make the changes using javascript permanent ?

There used to be a drag and drop extension that no longer works, and then sometimes it could be accomplished by clicking "customize". Now I can't figure out if this is an option but it slows me down to search for what I need (for example I need Roboform toolbar on the bottom so it's right above my pages)

To easily increase page text size in the previous version of Firefox, I used to be able to press control + option + two finger swipe up or down (trackpad equivalent to scrolling up or down). This functionality seems to have been removed in FF 17.0.1. Can it please be re-added?

I am changing from Safari to Firefox, and I am used to the shortcut of (apple)+(shift)+(right) to change tabs. I was looking for a way to change the default shortcut of (ctrl)+(tab) in firefox to the apple behavior. Is there an easy addon/change so I can customize this behavior? Or will I have to look into writing/changing the basic code within firefox? If so, can anybody provide tips on how to do so?


thanks,

Kevin.

Hi, I have been using Mozilla Firefox for years (currently Firefox 17.0.1) , but lately the convenient (sidebar) option to search the web or pages from New Zealand disappeared.

I can click on 'Search tools' - 'The web' - 'Pages from New Zealand' (and do the same again when I want to search the web), however this is definitely not user friendly.

Is there a way of getting back the one click option choosing between web search or local search?

Thanks!

When I open a second tab in Firefox, it does not go to my home page. Instead it goes to a page that displays what looks like a collection of pages (or links) that I have visited in the recent or distant past. I would much rather have it go to my home page which is much more useful to me. I have tried to change this in 'Options' but with no luck. Please fix this.

My FF decided on 12/1/2012 to open in browser, overriding my settings. No matter what I do, how I change settings, PDFs open in FF. I even totally uninstalled Acrobat 11 and reinstalled Acrobat 10. Still opens in browser (so does that mean it's FF causing the problem?)

My settings in FF were to open in Reader, overridden. Changed to save file. Overriden. No matter what I do, PDFs open in FF. My settings in FF for years have been to open in Adobe, but now I cannot find the setting!

So now, haha, PDF opens in FF and FLASH is mucked up. So I've increased the problems and spent an hour and a half. Can you help? What am I (or they) doing wrong?

I installed this addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tree-style-tab/ and it changed my tab settings. I preferred Firefox the way it was where if I right click on a link and click open it new tab, it opens it *right beside* the current tab. Now they all open at the end of the tabs, and when I close the tab its doesn't go back to the tab I was on. I removed the addon and it's still broken.

How do I reset it back to the default?

I've just activated Facebook Messenger for Firefox after updating to Firefox 17 for Ubuntu. To my surprise I now find the messenger sidebar (ticker and chat) on the left side of my Firefox window. On all articles about Messenger for Firefox I've seen on the Internet the sidebar is on the right side, and that's the way I want it.

Is there a way to move the sidebar to the right?

SeaMonkey Mail: When I type a paragraph of text into an e-mail message, send it to myself, and read it, I find that SeaMonkey occasionally merges words together leaving out the space. The original text has spaces but the received text doesn't. I am using 2.14.1 and have been having this problem only for the last month or so. At approximately the same time, I noticed that SeaMonkey began underlying parts of words in red. This happens when I backspace to correct a misspelled word. Are these problems related and how do I fix them? Must I reload SeaMonkey? The same occurs when I run in safe mode without addons.
