Also, the Menu Bar unnecessarily shows what page I'm on --- I know that. Is there some way to get rid of that part of the Menu bar and keep the rest?

Arrrgh.

Hi,

I can't enable any plugins.

Today I had a problem with firefox using too much CPU ressources. I restarted my browser in safe mode to see if any addons were the cause. I also disabled all plugins. After I found the faulty addon, I restartet firefox in normal mode. Unfortunately there is no way to enable any plugins now.

Whenever I enable a plugin it shows as enabled in the plugin list. But plugins are not loaded on sites requireing them (Mozilla's plugincheck doesn't find any enabled plugins either: https://www.mozilla.org/de/plugincheck/).

Restarting the browser doesn't help either. After every restart, all plugins are shown as disabled again.

What way is there to enable plugins?

Thanks in advance

In the sent mailbox the headings are Subject - From - Date. I want it to show Subject - To - Date. This would allow me to scan my sent messages for a message I sent to someone. Now it shows From and this of course is my email address which I already knew.

I did a system restore and afterwards the only search remaining in the searchbar in the top right was a custom one I had added. I got Amazon and Wikipedia back by simply readding them on their homepages, but Google doesn't give me that option.

How do I get google back (I can't find it in the list of searches you can add, and restore to defaults is greyed out)?

Updated to FF18 in January or December, received warning that my ZoneAlarm Pro browser security extension (or add-on?) is incompatible and was disabled.

 I contacted Zonealarm and was told they were working on a fix.
 In the past, they have always released a fixed extension within a few days of a new FF release, so I waited for a week, but nothing.
 I then contacted ZA and the agent said I should revert back to FF17, but when I researched that with Mozilla, it was strongly advised NOT to roll back to FF17 (I couldn't figure out how to do so at the FTP site anyway), so I got back to ZA and was told in January that a fix should be released in 2-3 weeks.
 It has been 6 weeks now and NOTHING from ZA.
 I just spent an hour on-line with ZA and eventually was told they may never release a fix so ZAPro will work with FF18...that agent today wouldn't give me any info, even whether they were working to fix it or not...his solution was to use IE which is something I will NOT do.
 I would just like to know whether Mozilla plans to work with Zonealarm to address this problem or not so I can try to decide what to do.
 I HATE browsing with no firewall, so the follow-up question is whether you are aware of some other firewall (preferably free) that I can ALSO use with my installed ZAPro firewall and incorporate that other firewall to just work with FF18 and allow ZAPro to be my primary firewall for all other protection.
 Any help would be appreciated because I'm thoroughly disgusted with ZA at this point for hanging me (and thousands of other FF users) out to dry with NO protection when browsing.
 Also, by using FF18 by itself with just an AV program (eset NOD32), what security exposure am I incurring by not having any firewall protection in place?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Chas Pearson

The issue I am having is that when the firefox browser is opened, the contents are really-really small and reduced in scale. I do understand that this would be caused by the high resolution of the screen, however, if I open the I.E. browser, everything is at a normal viewing size.

Is there an add on, or some way to make firefox [19] work so that it displays correctly? I really don;t want to have to use I.E. !! I am asking this question on my old computer, so don't go by the operating system this query was submitted on. The computer I am inquiring about is a samsung series 17 chronos touchscreen 15.6 HD screen laptop.

What is exactly the difference between these options? I have done a few tests but am not 100% sure. Currently I'm assuming extensions.update.enabled does only check for new versions of addons but it does not install them while extensions.update.autoUpdateDefault does only install addons if Firefox has already found a new version of them.

In this case setting only extensions.update.autoUpdateDefault to false would disable the automatic installing of addons and setting only extensions.update.enabled to false would disable the automatic searching for new addons which also implicitly disables the automatic installing of addons.

If my assumption is correct setting only extensions.update.enabled to false would be enough to disable any communication to an addon server.

I reinstalled Firefox and deleted all personalized data and the issue still arises. The resizing is really small for the first branching menu and really big if there is a second branching. The cycle repeats for a third and so on. The issue only affect the branching menu pop up and not the rest of the Firefox page. The error is hard to describe so I uploaded a picture of the first branching error using windows 7 snipping tool. http://oi49.tinypic.com/35idehh.jpg

A solution will be much appreciated.

I want to record the history to an offline folder, as a backup.

It is important to keep this information as a time allotment record, to bill our clients for time spent online on their behalf.

I need it to be like a backup or archive, but easily readable or searchable in the future, preferably as text file, so the person reviewing it does not need to have Firefox installed on their computer.

How do I accomplish this?
