When I first open Firefox I usually get a message that we cannot find that page. I have my start page set to Google. Then when I refresh the page it usually opens but sometimes I need to refresh more than once. Then after that I can surf normally. Does anyone know what causes that? Is it an issue with my ISP or my router or something else? I though it might be the New Tab Override extension, but disabling it won't solve the problem. I have a 100 Mbps cable connection. I do not notice the same problem with Chrome.

Hi,

I cannot make the chart in Firefox go into full screen like the one in Chrome. In Firefox, every time I click the chart's full screen button, it will just remove the surrounding clutter but the chart's size won't change. Please help. Thank you in advance.

I recently reset my computer because of performance issues. When relaunching FireFox, MSN is now my Home Page. I never selected or used MSN, but its there and I can't get rid of it. I have tried several times via the Settings tab, I have also tired on several occasions to drag a different tab to the Home Page Icon, but MSN just won't go away. I also tried to restore to an earlier version of FireFox, but no success. When working on the Settings tab, there is no "save" option. Is that normal?

Occasionally some websites will render a few icons of some particular type in a weird way. It's this crisscrossed celtic-looking pattern of yellow green and red. It's not a monitor or GPU issue, although does sort of look like my GPU is broken.

Here's an example. Curiously enough, this happens occasionally but here are some concrete examples where it ALWAYS happens. On 10forums, EVERYONE'S profile looks this way. https://www.tenforums.com/drivers-hardware/111899-stereo-mix-no-longer-appears.html

(look in pictures)

And so this didn't matter because this happened like once when I was doing a captcha, the whole captcha was rendered weird, and on tenforums. And almost never anywhere else.

But okay now it's a problem. A newgrounds game is rendering weird. (image attached) The boxes move around a tiny bit, they walk up and down.

I have to use chrome to fix this issue.

Anyone know I should do? I'm like 80% confident I've tried disabling ALL extensions but didn't fix the issue. I can try again if you really think it's important.

Webpages don't display properly; text and images too flushed to either margins.

Here are an examples using one site: [Image 1] is Firefox's default 100% zoom. Note the flushed text at the left margin. Ideally, it should look like [Image 2], however, that was zoomed down to 90% where the text body also shrinks along with it and making reading a tad harder. Obviously, not the best solution. [Image 3] is the same site on Safari. [Image 4] is taken from Palemoon. [Image 5] is reddit.com's comment page, again with the unsightly margin problem.

Any ideas how to fix this? Would really appreciate any troubleshooting tips.

Suddenly in the last few days, I can no longer view images on a stock photography site where I sell content. I can view the thumbnails of my and others' images, but when I click to enlarge, I get only a white box the size the image would be. I can also no longer view images posted in the forums. I've logged out and back in, cleared cookies, run CCleaner, rebooted, updated Java, and nothing helps. I can view the content if I log on with a different browser so this is a Firefox issue.

On the other the info isn't remembered. What can I do to restart the automatic log on? The problem isn't due to virus protection. I'm using Firefox 3.6.8, Windows 7.

I have the latest version of Firefox as well as Java. On Pogo.com some games play properly while others do not. The screen just has game loading. Now if I log into Pogo.com on Firefox in the safe mode, every game works properly. Pogo says it is a Firefox problem and I tend to agree. On the same computer I also run Internet Explorer 7.057 and have no problems with it on Pogo. However I do not like using Internet Explorer. I much prefer Firefox. Any suggestions?

With forum sites that run using vBulletin, when you mouse over the subject line of a thread in the forum, you get the first sentence or so of the post (about 80 or so characters). When browsing Forums that are running on vBulletin, prior to the installation of Firefox 4 Beta 2, this works. However, after I upgraded from Firefox 4 Beta 1 to Beta 2, this no longer worked. Does anyone know a fix for this, or is this a bug in Beta 2? I've checked other sites that use vBulletin, and they have the same problem.
