My computer shut down for updates overnight. I turned it on this morning. I needed to print out a couple things from Firefox. The printouts all came out in a large format. The print was larger then normal. Only about 2/3 of the page width actually printed out. I experimented to locate the problem. I tried two different printers, both with the same result. I printed out directly from two others programs (Outlook and Word) and the printouts were normal. So it's when i print out from Firefox that the problem occurs. What can I do to return the printing to normal size?

I lost my bookmarks in FF 3.6.3 on one computer. I was able to copy the places.squalite file and place it in a desktop folder of a new computer also using FF 3.6.3. I'm not sure how to import this file into the new FF. Can I go into the program files, rename the places.squalite file there as "old..."and substitute the copy I placed in the desktop folder? Or is there another way to salvage the info?

Some websites which I have accessed without problems will no longer work with Firefox. My digital banking site says that I should have Firefox 2.0 (at least) & I have 3.6.8 installed. My Yahoo mail will not open in the new version - again it suggests Firefox 2.0 or above.

URL of affected sites

Unfortunatly I'm not versed well enough in computer phrases to probably properly explain this. Yesterday firefox worked fine. It loaded all my pages beautifuly. But today when I turned it on my three homepages (gaiaonline.com/tiny.cc/youtube.com) were all set on text only. I tried searching other sites but it did the same thing. Even now there are no images. Just a white page with black text. I searched this in the support and the onlything that I could see that may help is that the page style may have changed to none but it didn't. An example would be that I tried putting this information in on firefox and couldn't because I couldn't see the numbers at the end.

Not sure how often

I woke up this morning and started it up.

After I update FireFox to version 3.6.8, I could not open the new page in the last tab, it always opens the new page in beside the tab.

Mmm…I could not make sure the new page or new tab I said is the same with you…?? (I use Chinese version so that I don’t know if it’s the same or not…)

A window could open several pages with different tabs, and I could click different tab to different page, right?

If I right clicked a link to open the page to “new tab” in the same window, the new tab opened in the last tab of my window.

But after I update FireFox to version 3.6.8 and I click a link to open the page to “new tab” in the same windoe, the new tab will open beside my page. (Mmm…Open on right of my page.)

I would like the “new tab” open to the last tab in my window, not “beside” the tab I used. How could I change the setting??)
