I've read many other posts on this issue, don't seem to find a solution. So I have to ask. . I'm wanting a different default zoom level other than 100%. I understand Websites create their websites to generic 100%. I have UnTicked "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above",... but this still is not enough to "Have it my way". I have scoured "about:config" for ZOOM and changed many settings to (for say) 115% and this includes removing the 100% from the 3 lists of zoom levels... but oddly it still defaults to 100%. LASTLY: I am trying to do my best to keep ADD-ONS to a minimum, requiring the installation of yet another ADD-ON seems counterproductive. . It seems it be easier to have an eye transplant than getting a simple default zoom of my choice. .

Locked due to age. If you still have a problem, please start a new thread

After doing a search, I will click on suggested websites. It will start to load, then will redirect me to another site that generally has nothing to do with the original search.

It is quite a common event to send friends a lead into a web address for interesting articles or videos (Youtube urls). To do thjis means you do a copy and paste into the Email. When I was using Aol the address presented itself in bold type which allowed the recipient to just click on the address to be connected instead of doing a copy and paste into the address bar. Is there a way this can be done in Firefox?

I am a professor and frequently need to open pdfs of academic journal articles from electronic databases. Within the last two or three weeks, when I try to do this using Firefox, only the first page of the pdf displays and the rest are blank. In addition, a bar appears across the top with the message "This pdf file may not display properly." So I have had to switch to Internet Explorer to open the files and do my research. What is going on and how can I fix it so I can open pdf files from the Web in Firefox and have them display properly?

How do remove www.superfish.com permanently - it interferes whenever I open my Firefox browser ... no matter which website I wish to visit ?

Whenever I open my Firefox browser (7.0.1) and no matter which website I wish to visit, I see that during the open page process that (in the bottom left corner of my screen) a number of URL's start to load - before my desired website page opens. Depending on the number of such URL's, my desired website can take a long time to open. One of these URL's is "www.superfish.com" - I want to remove this permanently ... such that "www.superfish.com" never ever runs. When I look into my Firefox Add On's and my Firefox Plug In's, I find that "Superfish" does not list as installed on my computer. When I look into my Start/Programs, I also find that Superfish is not listed. When I go into Add/Remove Programs, I also find that Superfish is not listed.

HOW DO I REMOVE "SUPERFISH" ... PERMANENTLY?

(My computer is running on WINDOWS XP Professional ... fully Updated).

(NOTE: I originally posted my question some 2 weeks ago. To date, it would seem that no one in the Firefox Community has got the answer to my problem. Surely this cannot be so - when I Google on the subject, it would seem that many other Firefoxers have encountered this problem; but - NOBODY SEEMS TO HAVE THE SIMPLE SOLUTION!!! Who can help me (and all the others???)

Why won't Firefox let me add an exception?

Firefox tells me that a site has an invalid security certificate, which I know. It asks if I want to Add an Exception and I click to add one. It pops up the Add Security Exception window and that window tells me that this site has a valid certificate and there is no need to add an exception; but I DO need to add an exception and it won't do it for me. Why? I am working in a secure test lab and use Firefox to login to our systems under test. Each time we change or add hardware we must add exceptions to login to a system. I have done this for years with Firefox but now Firefox 4 seems confused. We now need to use EI, which I would rather not.

I am desperate to remove Delta Search from my new tab page. What do I do after I open about:config? I have done at least a dozen resets, have removed DS via add/remove, am running a virus scan at present...this is TERRIBLE, and there HAS to be a way to get rid of it. When I do a reset, the new tab page is what I WANT...my previously saved pages. However, when I CLOSE FF and reopen, the new page is, once again, Delta. Can you hear me SCREAM? Can you see my TEARS? I am really fed up. Thanks for getting back to me with a solution that WORKS. jo

Many versions ago I customized the background color if none was given to a brown to go with the skin I was using then.

Now I find displaying a simple text file is unreadable with unbolded black against the brown, but I cannot find in today's version where to set it back to white (or at least a pale color).

Any help appreciated.
