Several months ago, my smallest window size was less than 2 * 2 inches. Then for no reason, the smallest size became about 2*2 inches. This was larger than I wanted but couldn't figure out why the change occurred or how to change it. So I learned to live with it.

Yesterday (12/19/13) when I logged into Firefox, the minimum size became 4*2 inches. This is too wide for me for many of the views that I want. I have not updated Firefox or Java recently. I don't know why this change occurred and would like to know how to redefine the minimum size window on Firefox.

The minimum size window for my IE browser and my Chrome browser is still 2*2. So the problem with the minimum 4*2 window is with Firefox only.

I'm working with a DELL Desktop DV051 with XP operating system 2002 Service Pack 3; 2.79 GHz; 1.99 GB Ram; Avast security

Flash will not work on certain web sites. I never had a problem before with flash on FF in the nearly 15 years that I have used FF. Just recently it stopped working for some reason and on certain sites flash will not work, NHL.com and a kid's website Herotopia being just two of them. I updated FF, Adobe flash to the newest version reinstalled them several times deleted all files that were stored on my laptop; i.e. profiles, saved bookmarks anything that I could locate and in all the user accounts and in the app data local, local low, and roaming folders. What is strange is that I cannot adjust the local storage setting for flash either. When I visit Adobe's site to view the Adobe Flash Player settings manager I can move the scroll bar but cannot check the: allow third party flash content to store data on your computer. I cannot do that on a website where flash will not work. When I try and changed it on any website it goes back to zero. Not sure it that is part of the problem. I tired numerous suggestions on the support pages here but nothing works. I even tried to this http://forums.adobe.com/message/4566499#4566499#4566499

The other odd thing is that I used to get the "Warning: Unresponsive script" prompt that says "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete." sometimes when I would shop on Macy's.com. That would be the only site that this happened on. I know I have only limited tech knowledge but I have been trying to figure this out for a few days now and just do not know what happen. The only thing I can think of is that I have corrupt files somewhere that is causing this issue. I just updated to Windows 8.1 this evening in hopes that may help but to no avail. I would be very disappointing if I could not use FF or have to go back and forth using Chrome and FF. Sorry for the long posting but any solutions would be very much appreciated.

I answer questions in several different forums.

What I have tried so far, resetting firefox, running firefox in safe mode, restarting pc, restarting firefox

I can copy/paste in xp forums here:

http://www.xpforums.com/

as you can see above the link is not in link form the address would have to by typed in or copy/paste into the address bar of a new tab.

I generally can copy paste links with no problems except here in firefox.

can copy text between tabs and from documents to reply box, links from my documents will show up in reply boxes as links.

Not sure what other details are need but will provide whatever is needed.


Edit: it appears now that the link did post as a link. will test on the microsoft forums. 12:25 am

Edit 2: no it did not work after submission on the microsoft forum, still copy/paste as plain text.

Solution: Saving All The Tabs And Reloading Them Anywhere (From Archived Thread)

Hi,

My problem "was" that I was working on Firefox at my home and at my office. As computers are fast these days, I am in habit of opening large number of tabs in firefox. And I always wanted to open the same tabs at my office which I was opening at my home and vice versa. I further wanted to clean the browsing history after leaving the computer at my work as well as home.

While searching through the forums, I reached to this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/960096

And to my satisfaction, the exact answer was not there.

Anyways, doing a little more search, I found why I will never stop loving Firefox and its because of its wonderful "addons".

So here I re-write the problem,

I want to save the addresses of different tabs opened in my Firefox and save them to a file that can be re-opened by Firefox on the same computer or on a different computer with the option to clean the browser history after leaving the computer.

Solution: "Session Manager Addon" of firefox.

Steps to the solution:

1. Download and install a firefox addon called "session manager".

URL: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/

2. After installing this addon, go to Firefox -> Sesion Manager -> Session Manager -> Session Manager Options. (or to Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Session Manager Options)

Go to "Advanced" tab.

Now change the default location for saving the session. Say you name it to your desktop.

Now, you have "Session Manager" addon installed, the default location of saving the session file is known to you (say your desktop).

3. Now go to, "Firefox -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Save Session" and give your session a name under the option "Save the current session as". (or to "Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Save Session")

4. Suppose you give your session a name called "New Session". In your default location of saving the session (say your desktop), you will get a file named "New Session.session"

5. Now this file is the key. It's a small file and you can simply email it to yourself or carry it to your work with you.

6. Just place this file at same location on the different computer and repeat Steps 1 and 2.

7. Now Session Manager is installed and configured on the other computer and the file has been copied to the desktop of this other computer.

8. Go to Firefox -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Load Session (or to Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Load Session) and the saved session will be loaded to the different computer by Firefox.


Now, how this addon can help someone?

1. It is extremely useful for people like me who are addicted to opening many many tabs at once and want to resume working from the same set of tabs whether they are at home, office or some other place.

2. Suppose, you are surfing some personal sites that you do not want other people to know and you can't bookmark those sites. You are on a different computer, say at your office and want to clean the browsing history too.

The best option in such cases is to save the session completely and re-load it on a different computer.

I personally found "Session Manager" addon better than "copy urls expert".

The only improvement I would like to see is that Firefox itself should allow multiple tabs to saved to a file that can be opened by Firefox just like we open a saved HTML page.

And thanks to Michael Kraft for creating this wonderful addon... Really liked and I hope my post help others.

thanks

In addition to the question below, another problem is not only are my email responses erased when the browser refreshes, the message itself is no longer available. I have to start from the beginning point in my email list, rather than remain on the once-opened email.

By the way, I have reset and restored my Firefox as a solution, which didn't help. I did this twice, following instructions. The process was tedious and I had to recover quite a bit of information, not to mention a problem with merged bookmarks. I'd like to avoid this solution, at all costs. Here's what I said earlier. Again, thanks for any/all help you can provide.

For the past several weeks, now, I've noticed that my browser "refreshes" the feed more frequently, so frequently, in fact, that any emails, forms, or survey questions that I am answering get wiped clean. This started happening with the latest update. I am unable to locate any setting in my preferences that will stop the constant refreshment (reload? page update?). This is also frustrating when trying to make purchases on line, and as I said, write emails, complete forms, complete surveys, etc.

Thank you in advance for quickly resolving this most frustrating problem? I use a Mac, and am running Mavericks. This problem was present with the previous OS, too. Thanks again!

I am running Firefox 26 on Windows 7. Last night Windows needed to do some security updates so I closed Firefox as I normally do by using the exit tab and let Windows go ahead with its updates. This morning I found that Firefox had been deleted. I looked to see that my sessionstore.js file from last night still existed and it does. When Firefox came up all of my tabs were gone, also my bookmarks, add-ons, etc. I clicked on "restore previous session" but nothing happens. I have a bookmarks file from last night in the bookmarks folder, and the sessionstore.js file is dated from last night when I closed Firefox in a normal manner. I'm stumped. Firefox didn't crash, I closed it as I always do before I allowed Microsoft to update Windows and reboot. What am I missing/doing wrong? I'm leaving this session open so that I can continue to have access to that sessionstore file, plus I have copied it to a folder I use for these kinds of disasters. This necessary windows update also deleted my MailWasher Pro program, changed the way that Windows Explorer operates and other "fun" surprises. Thanks Microsoft. It is barely possible that I can recreate my tabs and that would be hugely aggravating, but I have no way of re-creating all of my bookmarks. I need help.

I have Firefox 26.0 installed (though this has happened in previous versions). I have been through all the previous questions about this problem, but none match what I'm seeing. It's happening to others accessing my web site. I have a sample web page that I have up that presents the problem at http://flory.net/gabl/docx.htm.

When I click on the link on the above page (an office 2007 word document .docx), I get a page of gibberish as though it downloads the file as a text document. I've been through all the steps I could find in support to fix this to no avail, including resetting all defaults, etc. .doc works great, but I cannot find anything in the Options/Applications that will allow me to modify/add info to handle neither .doc nor .docx.

Hello, I am using a c# program to send Firefox some commands.Everything works great, but sometimes when I send a -new-tab command like: "firefox.exe -new-tab http://www.google.com"

Firefox freezes for few seconds before opening the new tab.I tried removing all the parameters from the command and just send "http://www.google.com" to the system while Firefox is set as the default browser, and the same problem arises again.

I also tried doing the same while Firefox is in safe-mode and still the problem appears sometimes. How can I troubleshoot this and know what makes firefox freeze for those few seconds?.

Thanks in advance

I have an Intel-based Mac Mini that really works well despite it's antiquity, but I obviously need to upgrade the OS. I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me whether Firefox will be dropping support for Mac 10.6 soon? I'll spend the $25 for the Snow Leopard install disk, but if it's soon to be unsupported, I guess I'd better save the dough and put the money toward a "newer" used Mac. Hate being cheap, but finances are tight. MANY thanks for any help you might offer!

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "Update Now" for VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0. The 'update now' link invites me to download Plugin 2.1.2. but i already have 2.1.2 installed so the plugin checker is detecting the wrong version. I have had v2.1.2 installed since December 9th 2013 and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 26.0 on Windows XP

Hi, I am developing a website that uses audioContext as the main audio playback mechanism. While the site works with chrome/safari and opera, I have trouble making the audio playback smoothly in firefox 26 on the desktop and android. The issue is that the playback functions are fired (and all my logs shows up perfectly fine), but no audio would come out. Then when I navigate away from page, the audio suddenly starts playing when I am already in another page. Then after awhile the audio would halt. However, this does not happen every time. It seems that when the computer is under load, this happens more often. So I am suspecting a bug in Firefox. Unfortunately, under my corporate rules, I cannot give out details about the code I am developing.
