Whenever i open firefox, it *always* makes itself windowed, but with the dimensions of my screen, meaning it's overlapping under windows' task bar, which is really annoying: I always have to manually maximize firefox after i started it.

  • If i right click on firefox's icon and go to properties > Shortcut > Run and set to "Maximized", nothing is changed.
  • When I maximize firefox manually, close it, and reopen it, i see briefly firefox maximized, then it quickly changes to windowed mode again.
  • I checked in the options and failed to see anything that could help.
  • Out of despair, i even tried to blindly search in the variables available in about:config, without luck.
  • I tried this on 2 different systems, both with windows 7 x64 installed and 8GB of RAM, without luck.

My system:

OS: windows 7 home premium x64 RAM: 8GB CPU: i7-920

When I try to send an attachment on my hotmail msn account, the line of options which contains the "Attachment" option briefly appears, then disappears so I cannot do an attachment. It's normally always there when I do a "new" email. I wrote to MSN hotmail windows, and they said to optimize my browser, but I don;t know how to do this. It does work on my other computer and also works on Safari on my Mac. Just doesn't happen on my usual Mac computer with Firefox. So, what to do?? Thanks. DK

Using FF 9.0.1. This feature has been around for a while, but never thought to ask this question. The feature is - you can click on a tab, and then drag it, and it separates and becomes it's own window. Sometimes, I want to take a window and re-attach it to the other FF window I have open. Then that window becomes a tab. Or sometimes I have grabbed the tab and moved it from the window by mistake and want to put it back. How can I do that? I use both Windows XP Pro and Win7. Chris

When I use multiple usernames for the same website, Firefox remembers the usernames. In Firefox for Windows, I could delete these saved usernames by highlighting the username I wanted to delete (arrow down) and hitting the delete button. This does not work on my Mac. How do I delete usernames I don't want saved?

Hello fellow Firefox users!

For most of us, Firefox suffers from an insane memory leak, this can cause slow-down, and maybe even crashes. This happens mainly because when you close tabs, the RAM they took is still taxing your computer. That among other things cause this annoying leakage.

-SOLUTION- I recently switched to Firefox, and has this leak. I would not put up with it, so I set out for solutions. Here is what I came up with.

Some add-ons I've handpicked, that when combined, are extremely effective.

RAMBack https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ramback/?src=ss

MemoryFox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/memory-fox/?src=search

MemoryRestart 1.1 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/memory-restart/?src=ss

-ALSO- Firefox acting slow? Try these great add-ons!

SpeedFox 0.9.11 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/speedfox/?src=search

DownThemAll https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/?src=search ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Get all of those together, and make a leak free, and faster Firefox!

I have recently decided to take the plunge and have installed two addons but, unfortunately, I can't find one of them on my Firefox's Toolbars, including the addon bar. I thought they would both automatically be added to one or another of the bars. One is on my addon bar but the other is missing although, according to the Addons Manager, it is enabled. Is there something I have to do to be able to add this to either one of my Toolbars, or the addon bar? I use Windows 7 and Firefox 9.0.1

Hi.

My son installed Freecorder hoping it would help him download YouTube vids on to his MP4 player. Me, I like things simple, so was cheesed off by added toolbars and stuff - so I uninstalled them. All fine, except when I highlight a word or phrase and then right-click for the search drop-down menu, instead of the usual option to 'Google search for...', I now have 'Search Freecorder Customized Web Search for...'

I have looked at all my Firefox extensions and add-ons, and also at my program list for things to uninstall (anything to do with Freecorder, Applian or any other unwanted garbage), but there's nothing obvious there.

So, how can I revert my right-click search option to 'Google', and how can I destroy the a***holes responsible?

Ta very much.
