I used GNU/Linux, and when I look the properties of desktop and panel shortcut to firefox the command are /usr/bin/firefox %U. What does %U means? When I typed it manually on my terminal it the firefox start and goes to http://www.%u.com/. But that not occured when I click on the shortcut. What is the reason for this different behaviour? Thanks in advance.

I'm running Firefox 11.0 (Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu 1.0) in Ubuntu 10.04. Ever since updating to Firefox 11.0, I have been unable to turn off Tor, or to browse without using Tor. There used to be a button in the lower-right that allowed me to toggle between Tor enabled/disabled, but it is no longer there. I have been unable to find any mention of this in the Tor documentation, so I'm asking here in hopes that someone has had a similar issue and has been able to solve it.

When I try to print a web page from firefox almost everything freezes. and the only thing I can do is to press ctrl+alt+del and then logout then login again and startup all the programs.

Note that I dont have an actual printer installed, but I'm trying to use adobe acrobat's printer.

I had windows 7 32 bit and lately changed to 64 bit and pretty much installed every thing I had before. I did not have this issue in my previous OS.

and also I checked with IE8 it prints fine.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi,

Thanks for any help in advance.


Of course the new Firefox is messing with me...But I have one specific question...

Facts...

1) I own a iMac...17 inch...So I can open lots and lots of tabs at once.

2) I just rebooted my computer back to brand new.

3) I'm working on finding all my old stuff, but can't seem to find two specific items...

In the previous version, and before I rebooted, I had about 40 tabs (Including Cluster Tabs) opening-up whenever I started a browse session. But now, I can't seem to control the size of the tabs, so they get less narrow as I had them?

I've already downloaded "Vulcanize Tabs" but that's no help...I think it was a specific theme that allowed me to do this, but many of the themes don't work with this new version of Firefox.

I suspect I'll just have to wait until the themes are updated? Or, do you have a better idea?


Also...

I want to get rid of the "X" on each tab and only have a close tab button on the far right of my tabs navigation bar.


Any help?

If so, thanks again!

Ps...Is there a way to reverse my downloading of this newest Firefox version and go back to the previous one until this new one gets many of the bugs worked-out?

I left for a while and my girlfriend used Firefox while I was gone (about 20 minutes). Now that I've come back, Firefox does not load ANY css bg images at all on any sites. I've tried disabling all add-ons and restarting firefox and restarting the computer and clearing the cache and all that good stuff. Settings are not blocking images and are surely loading all image content automatically and all. In fact, according to firebug, css background images are loaded by the browser when i visit sites, they just don't display. safari works fine.

confused.

The options menu only has "notify but do not update," with no way to turn them off completely. But, since Firefox is apparently just as pushy and stupid as Microsoft programs, Firefox absolutely refuses to stop accept my answer of "no" and then never ask me again... I can't imagine why anyone would willfully update to Firefox 3.6.4, since this adds 1.5x memory to Firefox which is already a HUGE memory hog according to task manager, by adding another process which does absolutely nothing useful at all (any "crashed" pages have to be reloaded anyway - and that's all of them, not just one). It should be pretty obvious to Firefox engineers that no one would want to ever downgrade from 3.6.3 to 3.6.4 , so I can't imagine why it keeps asking me to update, but I definitely need to know how to turn it off.

I have been using Firefox for some time and I have never had a problem with it. Recently, some settings that are apparently beyond my control to change. Every time I open a new tab, it goes to:

http://search.yahoo.com/?fr=freezetype=W3i_NA,132,3_6,Tab%20Search,20100520,6693, 0,16,0

Here is some info. So far, I have deleted all of Yahoo's cookies, deleted all Yahoo licenses, and deleted everything Yahoo from my computer, yet this persistent little vampire of a website remains. I have looked through the settings on Firefox a hundred times, and it seems that there is no way to influence where a tab goes when you open it. It will probably fix the problem to reinstall Firefox, but if it happens again I want to kill it. I am a Google man folks. I have Google as my homepage, and I don't appreciate Yahoo sticking its ugly purple nose into my business every time I open a tab. Please help!
