Why dont you put a button on your browser for tools like all the other browsers do? I have to do a search to figure out how to make any changes.

I removed Bing from my computer as I did not like it much. Since Google has now become such a useless piece of junk I decided to re-install Bing but each time I try I get the following message. Quiote: Firefox could not install the search plugin from "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/54407/bing-20090601.xml?src=category" because an engine with the same name already exists. This engine does no show up anywhere on my computer except for an XML file in Firefox/searchengines. I have deleted them but it makes no difference. The files do not show in Tools\addons nor in about:config. Please don't tell me that Firefox is become as useless as Google...............I don't want to have to use IE.

WinXP SP3, Firefox 17.0. Pentium 4: 1 CPU w/hyperthreading @ 2GHZ, 1.5GB RAM Firefox is installed on c: (plenty of empty disk space) Drive E: is a 4GB SSD which is mostly empty. (Actually a flash drive on an INTERNAL USB 2.0 port, so it is NOT removable. I don't care if multiple read/writes wear it out - it is a cashe drive, not for any kind of permanent storage.) I want to set the Cashe to E: for better performance

Just updated to Firefox 17 on my Windows 7 PC. The close tab buttons are now on the left side of the tab instead of the right side. How do I move them back to the right side? I can't find any other help on this and have tried playing around with about:config userchrome, but to no avail. I can change the color, add a button on the bar, but can't affect the positioning of the close tab buttons on the tabs themselves.

HELP!

I used ad block to block an annoying ad within a PayPal email. This resulted in my entire page of email messages being blocked. I can log in to my email account but can't access my messages. How can I undo my block?

My computer is Microsoft Vista and Firefox is my browser.

My albine worked with the last version before I upgraded to 17. I did not save that version and would like to go back to it. I did save firefox 9 and that is what I am using now but I believe you have a later version that i could use. What was the version before 17 and where can I find it? I hate to go back to windows explorer unless I have to. You should let us know what will not work with your upgrades before we start them. Had I known Albine would not work I wouldn't have upgraded.

Thanks.

is there any FF own controls or external plugin which would allow me *full*, comfortable (via dialog panels), interactive control of Search Bar providers like, say, Opera browser does (and always did)?

for some reasons, the current FF UI only allows me to edit a 'keyword', or I am missing something?

When I use javascript to change font/color/size or inner html, it works temporarily only. Changes does not remain permanent. e.g.

<title>Showing Charset</title> <style type="text/css"> .head_class {color:red;font-size:60;font-family:impact;} </style>

<script type="text/JavaScript"> function chngFont() { var el2 = document.getElementById('myfont'); var sfont = el2.value; document.getElementById('head').className = 'head_class'; document.getElementById('head').innerHTML = sfont; // alert(document.seefont.fonttosee.value); } </p><p></script>

Charset

<form name="seefont"> <input type="text" id="myfont" name="fonttosee" size="20" value="arial"> <button onclick="chngFont()">Change font</button> </form>


When I click the button class head_class is applied to heading id "head" and even the text is change to font name entered but just momentarily. If I use alert in the function, the changes remain only till alert is on the screen. The same code works in IE forever ( The changes remain permanent. What are the settings in firefox to make the changes using javascript permanent ?

There used to be a drag and drop extension that no longer works, and then sometimes it could be accomplished by clicking "customize". Now I can't figure out if this is an option but it slows me down to search for what I need (for example I need Roboform toolbar on the bottom so it's right above my pages)

I am changing from Safari to Firefox, and I am used to the shortcut of (apple)+(shift)+(right) to change tabs. I was looking for a way to change the default shortcut of (ctrl)+(tab) in firefox to the apple behavior. Is there an easy addon/change so I can customize this behavior? Or will I have to look into writing/changing the basic code within firefox? If so, can anybody provide tips on how to do so?


thanks,

Kevin.
