Now the htm and html icon looks like a blank white page that is bent on the top right hand corner.. I tried a firefox reset and it didn't help.. I don't wanna do a reinstall of firefox because I want to keep the old firefox download manager and not the new one that is on the right of the search bar.. ( I saw it on my ubuntu linux computer) BUT my computer with the html file icon problem is Windows 7 x64

My printing options do not show that. They just say Format For, and Paper size: and Orientation:

How do I temporarily suppress headers and footers when printing in firefox? (Why would I want to uglify my paper with it in the first place when printing passes, maps, return receipts, etc?).

I can use Alt+D to get to the Location Bar to type in a URL, but is there a way I can then go to the default text box, to enter data, once the search engine page has been opened, by using a short-cut key? I didn't recognize any of the commands in the Shortcut Keys page as being what I want.

first i removed header and footer, and set the all margins to be found in about:config(Linux) or in Dialog (Windows) to zero.

On all html documents i get a little gap on the top of the first page, but not on the second one. The gap appears on paper print, on file print(PDF) and on preview - under firefox (17.0) for Linux and Windows. IE 8 on windows has other abnormalities, but equal top margin on all printed pages.

How can i remove this difference top margins between first page and the following once in firefox ?

My 8.0.1 version does not have either "symbol" or "Wingdings" fonts listed and when I render my html document those characters end up using the Arial font. I have documents with lots of less-than-and-equals, greater-than-and-equals, and a host of other symbols as well as wingdings characters. IE9 works fine. Chrome has the same problem Firefox has.

I now use Windows 7 OS and Firefox as my default browser. Previously, in Windows XP, when I entered a website address it automatically changed to a (HTML?) link and if you clicked the link you went straight to the relevant page on the website. I may not have added the relevant Plug-in or Add-on and this may be the reason I am having the problem. I would like to have a simple way of doing this and not some of the suggestion I found when trying to resolve this myself.

I see in Thunderbird that there is an Insert menu where I can do this very thing but I can;t find the Insert menu in Firefox.

I have Removed the FoxTab addon, which hasn't functioned for the last 2-or-3 Firefox upgrades. I really liked FoxTab, & so was happy to see Firefox adding this as native functionality!, if only I can Add specific sites to the 'Top Sites' displayed in the New Tab!

With the new 'Top Sites' function, when one clicks to open a New Tab, there are some sites automatically displayed/listed. However, none of these are sites which I wish to be readily available, even after Removing those sites I don't wish to be displayed there.

@ the "Learn More About The New Tab Feature" page (below*) it's shown how to "Organize"/"Pin"/"Remove"/"Rearrange" sites, but not how to Add sites...
