The default setting for my printer is A5 (about 8.5X5.5", and each time when printing a page (document) from Firefox I must set the printers preferences to Letter size and which tray to print in. Is there a way for me have Firefox do that for me?

Thanks, Uncle Dewey

Firefox Version 23.0 Mac 10.8.4

With version 23 of Firefox the preference "Load Images Automatically" under the content tab is GONE. The only options that remain are Block Pop Up Windows, Fonts & Colors, and Languages.

I use this preference EXTENSIVELY and I have searched every corner of the preference panel in case it was moved and I cannot find it anywhere. Please do not tell me you got rid of this function.

When I try to save an image to my Mac - I have the option of saving it to my Desktop, my Docs folder or a few others, but not to a specific folder for different things I'm saving. I can't scroll through my Documents folders for example and save it to one of them.

So i end up saving things to my Desktop and that soon gets out of hand.

How can I save to a specific folder, and a different one each time if I choose. I can do this in Safari, but prefer Firefox.

Thanks.

Just last week I began receiving huge pop-up notices from familiar places - like my bank, Firefox, anywhere - and everytime - I open up a new page. My pop up blocker on Foxfire is engaged! So, that's not the problem. It's annoying and I don't understand it. A voice recording comes on and tells me some useless information.

Could I have a malware on my computer? Please advise. Thanks

Changes in Firefox 23 - not for the better

I just got Firefox 23, and found there is no more Enable Javascript checkbox in the Content area of Preferences and there is no more ability to prevent changes to the functioning of the context menu and prevent the changing of the size or position of the window. I really do not understand why certain settings to control what may be done by web page code to the browser are being gutted out. Presumably it means that any smartass who can write a web page can force my browser window to be whatever size he wants it to be. That used to drive me crazy in the past, and it will do the same thing again. Is there any way to make a capability policy that could stop the resizing of the window? I just found out that I can still use the context menu if I use Shift-right-click. Why the change?

Autohiding the tab bar does not work any more. I thought the big argument for trying to put tabs on top and into the title bar was to save space? Forcing the tab bar to be visible all the time will certainly not save space, so why do it?

My bookmark menu was removed from the bookmarks toolbar. I tried to find a button that would put it back, and there are two bookmarks buttons in the customize window. Are the developers trying to make things harder, or what?

I can't seem to find the settings button. I have looked for answers similar to mine, but no success. This is such a confusing web browser.! I thought maybe it would be near the star, down arrow, and home button..but it's not. So I looked under the orange Firefox thing. No luck. No matter where I look at, I do not find my solution. All I wish to do is change my homepage and a few other things. But I am having no such luck on changing my homepage. I thought maybe going into Control Panel --> Network & Internet --> Internet Options --> Change homepage (Internet Properties)..but that didn't solve my issue nether. I just don't understand why the developer did not place the settings tab/button right in clear view. The developer would have such more users if he/she changed the way the browser was set up. Please help! Thank you for your time.

Running a version of Linux, the default application for PDF files is "Use Document Viewer (default)", which appears to be /usr/bin/evince. I'd much prefer to use /usr/bin/okular; how can I change the default. This question is NOT about how to change the function that is automatically applied when I access a link, in this case "Preview in Firefox", but rather to the default application that I can select when I download a file being viewed in Firefox's previewer.

I have a sidebar that pop up on the left hand side of my screen whenever I am on the internet. It does contains a X and will close with you press that, but reopens as soon as I click on something else. It is very annoying and gets in the way of looking at pages. I've accidentally clicked on it and it takes me to weird websites. It is not listed in my toolbars or sidebars as an option to turn off. My virus detector hasn't detected any viruses. I have Firefox version 23 and Windows 7

I have a copy of the screenshot, but not sure how to post it in this question. Any suggestions will help.

Thank you, Jess
