I find it annoying that I have the Find tool on, then open another page in a tab and it's off, or navigate away from a page and have the Find box go away. That box isn't very big and in the way, and it would much better to keep that box open ALL THE TIME. Having to press CTRL+F evertime I need it, is painful. Okay, so I'm lazy! But I don't think it would impair the user's ability to view a page. That row it sits in is as high as only one line of text!

How about implementing this, Mozilla? I mean, your browser is the browser of choice. It's superb at viewing images and retrieving image information. It plays Youtubes and other videos flawlessly. It's as fast as Google's Chrome at performing a search across the net. Firefox wrocks! It would only wrock a little more if one could enable this feature and leave it on all the time. I do a lot of research, and finding a phrase on a page at Wikipedia or elsewhere is performed often. So let's allow new tabs to have the tool on if it is already on, and let's leave it on until we purposely turn it off.

Please?

This add-on is an important one to me and tens of thousands of others as well. Sadly this very useful add-on and functionality is now gone from my FF as of 17.. Many people are downgrading or refusing to upgrade solely because it will break this add-on.

In FF17 a major change was made to the function tosource's return value that broke not just this but many other add-ons as well. Now I don't have a problem with a change of standards and requiring everyone to update code to work with that. But this was handled in completely the wrong way by Mozilla IMO.

Where is the support to the add-on community that has loyally supported your product all these years and giving them a proper chance to migrate/change code to work with the new function return values? Why was there no schedule with a phase-in plan and a deadline for such changes?

Heck, a phase-in plan could have included a phase-in period where the function would support both methods by issuing an extra parameter for the new functionality. Then you could gradually switch the main return to be the new format. That way existing plugins would still be fine.

It seems a bit horrible from an end user standpoint suddenly not having this great tool that improves the firefox experience so much. I know many others feel that same way about this add-on as i've seen countless comments about it, and i'm sure many others feel that way about add-ons that they use that also are now broken too.

I'm writing here to ask either Mozilla to offer a fix, or the larger community to see if there is some workaround/middle ground that could be found. Perchance write a JS Function that could be included/injected into the broken add-ons that would convert/reformat the response of that function call so it remains usable to them with the data they need?

I really hope someone can come up with some temp solution for everyone until more permanent ones can be developed.

Thanks for reading..

SeaMonkey Mail: When I type a paragraph of text into an e-mail message, send it to myself, and read it, I find that SeaMonkey occasionally merges words together leaving out the space. The original text has spaces but the received text doesn't. I am using 2.14.1 and have been having this problem only for the last month or so. At approximately the same time, I noticed that SeaMonkey began underlying parts of words in red. This happens when I backspace to correct a misspelled word. Are these problems related and how do I fix them? Must I reload SeaMonkey? The same occurs when I run in safe mode without addons.

This happens on every image on a page. Why would anyone in their right mind want to tweet, google+, gmail and facebook every single picture on every web page they visit throughout any given day? The tile that comes up obscures information that I actually want to read. That is why I am on the web page in the first place and not to tell everyone about a site that is now rendered unreadable by some thoughtless and banal piece of programming. If it cannot be switched off I will be dumping Firefox.

Auto-complete is working for my frequently visited sites except for recently failing when logging-in to my Internet banking facility. No longer is my banking user name available as the drop-down list of several users no longer appears.

I checked with my bank to be assured that auto-complete has not been blocked by default within the site configuration.

As this is a recent failure I have to wonder, as the bank has disclaimed responsibility, whether auto-complete can be restored for this one site.

While browsing the Web with Firefox, I often want to view an htm (or html etc) file that is recorded on my computer, by double-clicking it in my Windows Explorer, hoping it will open automatically a new tab. When I try this now, I get the error message "Firefox is already running (etc)" . In my current setup, Firefox is associated with the htm and html file name extensions. If, instead of double-clicking the filename in the Explorer, I choose the Firefox menu item "Open a file", this works OK. In old versions of Firefox, double-clicking a filename in the Windows Explorer or File Manager caused Firefox to open a new window every time which was ok. I have the same problem with Thunderbird, which I have associated with the "eml" file name extension. How can I view a series of recorded ".eml" files with Thunderbird when Thunderbird is already running ? Thank you.
