Upgraded from 60.9ESR to 78.8ESR Tons of empty white space being wasted in my address bar drop down, and the preferences+addons pages now only occupy half the screen so I have to scroll more to see all my options, click to fully read text boxes and open sub-menus?!

How can I make these things more compact? The Customize options don't affect them, though I've changed the "blow-up" address bar behaviour using policies.json.

I started using Firefox before I got a monitor to use with my laptop. Back then, font size was not an issue. As soon as I plugged in my monitor and dragged Firefox into it, then dragged it back to the laptop, the font was so small it was nearly illegible (in the laptop). Drag it back into the browser and it's fine.

Has anyone else had this issue? I've tried going to about:config, devp and adjusting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx up and down. I keep ending up with font that, if it looks good in my laptop, is WAY too large in the monitor. I just want a normal balance. Chrome doesn't have this scaling issue. Please help! It's affecting my ability to work!

I have allowed auto updates of FF to version 17 For all of the updates since I thin FF15 Kasp PM has failed to work with FF but works fine with IE (this is of course highly irritating). The Kasp website forum keeps issuing patches that it claims fix the problem but they don't. The add-on manager in FF always reports PM as incompatible and disabled. Has anyone had this problem and worked out a fix. The Kasp forum showed a bit of interest in my posts but now never seems to answer.

My McAfee SiteAdvisors is activated but doesnt show in the add-on bar. I double checked the situation under « Tool, Add-on, Extensions » and the add-on is enable. Also the « Add-on bar » is activated.The green McAfee SiteAdvisor button dissapeared after firefox update 16.02. I updated to 17 in case it would resolve the problem with no success. McAfee is still working by giving a warning page if I try to go on a suspiscious site. Also in google search result I no longer get the little McAfee evaluation icones.

I love Firefox, but I have 2 distinctly different needs. I need 2 separate Firefox browsers with very different settings, consistent with very different uses:

1. This use of Firefox will be for visiting many different websites, a wide variety of interests.

2. I need this use of Firefox to be very limited and restricted, consistent with handling personal investments, banking, financial transactions. There will be very few websites, but with extremely secure, private, connections.

After installing latest ff (17.0) session manager was no longer installed. re-installed, but all previous sessions (as I stated dozens, with placemarks where I left off with online courses, pages with possible Christmas shopping items, etc etc) are ALL GONE.

I recently moved from London to Kampala. I used to use Property-Bee to help me to buy a flat. Found it quite useful. There is a property listing website www.homehippo.ug in Kampala that I used to find a house to rent. It's a new website and apparently they are going to have sales section soon. Was wondering how to make Property-Bee work with this homehippo.ug site as we plan to purchase a house here next year.
