I get this error on every page I go to, Connection closed by remote server. I can not connect to any web sites. Explorer works and so does my SlimBrowser. I have turned off my firewall, uninstalled my anti virus. Installed another one. Uninstalled FireFox and downloaded the latest version, no luck. I unistalled it again and wipe out all my favorites, settings and etc. I still won't go to even one wab site and I have tried a lot of them. It started a couple weeks ago, failing on a lot of sites, but would go to some. It seemed like every afternoon it got so it wouldn't go to any. But the next morning it would go to a few, then quit. Now it won't go to any. Any help would be appreciated.

I have talked to my service provider and they can't see anything wrong.

I can only print first 80 or so pages after I download firefox - if I do a system restore and uninstall firefox, the problem goes away... until I download firefox again and then I again can only print the first 80 or so pages - even if I am using IE!

This began when business increased in January and our print jobs got big (printing invoices off the internet). It can print any small job no problem but if it's over 80 or so pages, it will stop and show a spooling error. I have done system restores and uninstalled firefox and then Internet Explorer will print the big jobs UNTIL I REINSTALL FIREFOX. Then the problem resurfaces whether using firefox or IE!!! Why?! I don't care why - how do I fix it? All 13 other computers use firefox and that is how my staff is trained. I hate IE.

My present Firefox is version 9.0.1 since update when I click on Back button after filling in web form or making online payment etc., I can't go back to my main page, if I press BACK BUTTON (arrow mark) a message says " Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier".

I do not want to re-order or repeat the process already finished. The only thing I can do is to exit Firefox and start again which is very painful.

Any solution will be appreciated.

I'm using FP2003 and have made changes to many pages that have simple tables that are all centered in FP and after uploading these tables are all justified to the left when viewed in Firefox but in IE they look fine. I have had this site for many years and have well over a thousand pages with tables that I have changed numerous times in the past without issue.

When I load FF 9, then click on the + to open a new tab, it does so, but in the quickstart bar in Windows 7, it shows as another window of FF, although the new tab "seems" to be in the original instance of FF. Effectively, what I mean is, if I have 4 tabs open, it shows 4 Firefox windows in the taskbar.

Is there a fix for this?

Thanks and regards, Clive

As I scroll or as I go to a new page, most any time, the display within the Firefox window becomes mis-displayed. That is pehaps as diagonally across the window or perhaps a sub display field will be displayed distorted diagonally. I could send a screen shot. This happened a little when using Thunderbird, which I understand has the same rendering engine but not lately. If I close Firefox and restart it, it might behave for a while. It quickly starts problems again. Right now, as I type this, this sub window for entering text is blinking on and off and it has now started going diagonal in its display. At the same time, I can continue to enter text. Is there a way to send you screen shots? As I type this and went on down the page, trying to copy and past the trouble shooting information requested below, I had a great deal of trouble with the screen flipping around. Finally I noticed the link to copy it all to the clipboard to paste below. I cannot tell you if it made it because I cannot get the window below to display properly.

I have a Windows media bar in the middle of my screen that just sits there. It cannot do anything other than show me its properties. I tried rebooting Firefox, rebooting the computer, running a virus scan and running Eset's deep virus scan and it is still there. I cannot get rid of it. It will not close.
