Hello,

Just updated to FireFox 20.0. Ctrl+F no longer shows the total found. This feature otherwise works. I did do a Reset to see if that will help. Now am putting Addons back. Worked fine in prior version (19). Use browser for research so numer is important.

So far I like the new version. Should I go back to 19? How? Using current version of Java and Flash player. Windows 8. Let me know how I can help.

Thanks for your time.

Something happen to my computer yesterday because lots of my program shut down but I was able to open up again and now I discovered today that every time I open firefox it remember my last session even though I didn't ask it to - my homepage is set to my homepage under options and I do remember history and I know if I turn that off it won't do this but it shouldn't be doing this in the first place.

Print Preview - Zoom.

When I zoom it changes the size of the page on displayed on the screen and it also changes the font-size of the text being displayed.

Is this a glitch or am I doing something wrong.

Incidentally I need both the features... i.e. I want to be able change the size of the page as it is being displayed and I also want to be able to change the size of the content on the page - but I would like separate selection boxed / controls for each.

Currently running Windows Vista and using Firefox 21.0 as my default browser. Have heard and read a lot of good things about LinuxMint as an alternative to Windows (which I have never rated).

Are Firefox and LinuxMint compatible with each other does anyone know? I would be most grateful for any advice, but please keep it really simple as I am not a computer buff at all (in fact, they are a complete mystery to me!)

Many thanks

I am not online every day, or even every week. I seems to me that my Firefox is updating fairly frequently. Is this normal? Does my Firefox need to be updated more than once or twice a year? I admit I have not kept a record of the number of times or the dates it has had to be updated. It just seems like it is fairly frequent, and I have not noticed any differences. This is not a problem, it is just a question.

I just installed Firefox 4.0.on my xp sp3 laptop. My desktop, quick launch and startmenu Firefox icons are all on a white background. On the change page it says that the Firefox logo was updated, but I could not find a description of the update. How can I change the Firefox logo to a transparent background? When I search the user area how do I make the search so that both words are in the results?

I am using firefox 22 and using Webex One-Click on the desktop

Everything runs fine and I am able to view sharing fine, however when I share my screen I run into a number of screen update issues.

Dropdown menus on any website do not work.

     When clicking on a drop down menu, often you will see a border or outline of where box would be but no selections are available.  After waiting for ~10 seconds the selections become visible.

When I stop sharing screen is frozen white and I need to end firefox and restart.

I am not using the webex plugin for firefox, and firefox is the only browser this happens in. IE, Chrome both work fine. This occurs on 2 Personal Laptops both running windows 7 64 1 Work Laptop running Windows 7 32
