I love how firefox will save tabs from a previous session and I've found out how to enable these settings thanks to your useful support site. But I was just wondering if it were possible to not simply restore tabs from a previous session but to save a whole window of tabs for later occaisions other than the next time firefox is used? I would rather not bookmark the whole lot because there's simply too many to keep it organised so i could flick back to the page i wanted. Thanks!

The notice is a window that appears while I am in Google. The title is "Browser settings change" below, along with the yellow triangular [!] warning, is a choice: "Keep my current settings", or "I am aware of this change and approve it" Regardless of any choice, clicking on the [Yes] button has no effect. Neither will clicking the [X]

I don't know what this means or how to remove it.

I'm on Firefox 16.0.2. About a week or two ago this change spontaneously happened. When I open a fresh tab, I want to see a blank screen. That's what I'm used to. Now for some reason my new tab is populated with up to nine websites that I visited previously. I do NOT want this! How do I change it back to get a blank screen??

for some reason, i now have a developer toolbar, even though i haven't installed this myself. what's even weirder is that it pops up every time i hit shift - thus the lack of capital letters in this post - and it doesn't show up on my extention- nor plug-in list, so i have no idea how to disable it. it shows up under the tools tab and i can shut it down there, but it shows up again whenever i hit shift.

In one of the recent updates of Firefox, I think I was offered a choice of opening it in the minimized mode, and foolishly chose that. Now, every time I load Firefox, it is in the minimized mode, and I have to restore it to open it. Not a big problem, but annoying. How do I undo this setting? This only occurs on my desktop. It still opens in the viewable mode on my laptop, which is running windows 7.

It seems this happened after Firefox latest update. I can't seem to be able to copy the translated text box in Google Translate. I tried using IE and that worked. Hopefully you guys can test it on your side to see if it's working for you?

I also tried it with disabling Adblock Plus, but that didn't help.

There has been no upgrades or updates done to Firefox or any other software yesterday or today. Just suddenly out of nowhere, Firefox can not load Yahoo's Home Page (which is my home page). I opened Internet Explorer and it can load Yahoo's Home page with no problem so it is NOT Yahoo.

Navigation, menu commands and Bookmarks toolbars all disappear

Hi---started up and suddenly ---No Navigation buttons or customized buttons --no bookmarks toolbar --no box in which to enter a URL and change to another page --no menu commands --pretty much nothing, in fact, except the content of my home page. There's not even the series of commands for "about" or "help" NOTHING

Now, I discovered by accident that if I click on a link from my portal (netvibes) that happens to open in a new window, then all my old stuff appears.

But every time I open the first instance of the browser as a default--it's unuseable as it even lacks a place to put a url to change sites!

I've tried right-clicking along the strip as I saw in a FAQ; all I get are Windows commands (restore, minimize, close, and a nview command added long ago by my video card), but no options to CUSTOMIZE and or VIEW and restore toolbars, etc-

I tried f11 to make sure that I was not accidentally running full screen (although clearly I was not) and that test demonstrated I was not.

I hit f10---nothing happened.

When I right click elsewhere on the page (other than on a link from some feed on my portal), it gives me a host of commands from various extensions, like "open tab in new window" or "add to evernote" or "fireshot" but nothing that seems directly related to Firefox except I can see navigation commands like back/forward in the right click menu.

Clicking on the Firefox icon in the upper left just brings up the "close" "minimize" "restore" commands mentioned earlier from Windows.

Any advice?

Firefox 22.0 has 1386 code (as well as x86_64), and the only difference within Info.plist is basically LSMinimumSystemVersion being 10.6 instead of 10.5 as in Firefox 16.0.2. So why can't Firefox 22.0 run of Leopard (10.5.8) with simple changes to Version numbers?

I have an Intel Mac-Mini core duo running Leopard, and an Intel Macbook Pro core 2 duo running Snow Leopard. I'd like to run Firefox 22.0 on my Mac-Mini, just as I do on my Macbook Pro, but with i386 code, which is built-in to Firefox 22.0. Currently I can only run Firefox 16.0.2 on my Mac-Mini, also using i386 code.
