Where did I see that article on XYZ. I'd like to regain a train of thought/investigation. Is bookmarks and history all there is? In reading about "Activity Stream" this seemed like the solution but it seems to lack an awareness of clustered, goal-directed activity. Is "Top Sites" and "Highlights" all there is to Activity Stream? Looking for some deeper integration/intelligence around re-displaying my history.

First thanks for all the help with ff when I had a dying system. Now setting up ff 59.0.2 on a windows 10 box and need a basic bit of information.

In the previous version I had I could type for instance, 'imdb' and hit ENTER then I'd be taken right to the imdb page. Now a search engine page opens up. Only way I can go directly to a site is if I type the entire address as in, http://www.imdb.com/ Either one of these ways of navigating are an inconvenience.

What do I have to do to get ff to a state where I can type the site name, say tigerdirect, hit ENTER and go right to http://www.tigerdirect.com/ ?

Thanks in advance.

The firefox logo pops back to the apps logo list when I try to drag it down. I may have created a problem when I made a second Firefox and tried to drag it, too. On my screen it was called Firefox Alias. I dragged it to trash.

Have been to China, but now I'm in Australia. I downloaded Firefox in Australia, not China. However some of my Firefox buttons are in Chinese?! How can I stop this. Also does Firefox have a 'translate' button. If so where is it hidden.

I want Fire Fox display its SEARCH RESULTS (not web pages) in the middle of the screen when using a WIDE SCREEN MONITOR (with text size 150% increased).

  • I guess the increased text size affects the length of text folded before reaching the right side end of the screen, but large font size is quite important for me, so changing the font size would not be a fix for this problem.

The link below is an image of my screen. http://www.fastpic.jp/images.php?file=8926352964.jpg The monitor resolution is 1920*1080. The right side is of the screen is empty so the best sitting position is in front of left side of the monitor and that is quite uncomfortable.

So would you please teach me how to 1. increase the left side margin (I guess this can be done with an add-on) 2. (Important) reduce the RIGHT SIDE MARGIN so that the text length toward the right side before folded be lengthened and the text be displayed toward the right side end.


Thank you for your kind help.

I am using the Beta version of Firefox (27) but I have seen the same behavior in recent released levels. I enter a search at www.google.com , such as rc heating and cooling nj I then get a page of results. I click on any result (first one is fine, though an Add, any of them work the same way). I see their page. When I hit the Back arrow to get back to the page of results and try another link, it flashes some google redirect URL on the address bar, and then goes right back to the same page I was on. It always brings me back to the same page I was on. If I click on the Back Arrow button with the right mouse button I see three links in the history for that tab, and I can chose the bottom one to go back to the Google search page: 1) Bergen County Heating & Air Conditioning ... (www.dbheatingandcooling.com/?gclid=CNft9ZLC57sCFel9OgodkWUAqQ ) 2) http://www.google.com/aclk?sa=l&ai=CES...&adurl=www.dbheatingandcooling.com 3) rc heating and cooling nj - Google Search ( https://www.google.com/search?q=rc+heating+and+cooling+nj&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-beta&channel=sb ) When on 1) back arrow causes 2) to flash and I go back to 1), always. I can use the right button to drop down the entire list and if I click on 3) then it takes me back to the search results page. Clicking on 2) also takes me back to #1) , BTW. The Google redirect (#2) is sometimes http://www.google.com/url?sa=... instead of aclk?sa=... depending on which link I click, but it is the same behavior. This does not happen in Internet Explorer (IE 8). I see the redirection URL also flashing by in IE, but the back button works and takes me back to the search results page.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Processor: AMD FX 8350 8 core black

Ram: 8.0 g

Antivirus: Kaspersly Pure 2.0

Since using Firefox (for over 10 years now) I see increased instability and a catastrophic inability to handle Adobe Flash. I experience more and more frequent total crashes to desktop because of it.

In the process, I lose all the work I was in the middle of, doing research on various web pages in order to write technical postings.

At this point I am experiencing 3 to 5 crashes per day, with an average of 5 hours total time spent using the browser.

This is no longer acceptable, as Mozilla appears to be doing NOTHING to alleviate the problem - which appears to be an inability to free the memory resources used by Flash. When the files are unused for a long enough time, they should be automatically deleted, instead of accumulating to approx 500 mb.

Since Mozilla seems completely uninterested in correcting the issue, and more interested in pointing the finger of blame everywhere else, I am now forced to return to using IE.

I can't stand IE. That should illustrate how completely fed up I am on inaction to this issue.

Firefox would be ideal - IF IT WAS RELIABLE. It no longer is.

And I cannot continue to reduplicate my research and resume writing long articles from scratch every time it crashes.

I would much rather use your product, but as long as it continues to crash, I cannot.

I switched to Firefox and Thunderbird after having a lot of trouble with MIE and Windows Live mail. I love them both and am very grateful to Mozilla. Now I have some problems with my hands and find voice recognition software a great boon.

I find I can do less with voice recognition in the Mozilla programs than in their Microsoft counterparts. Voice recognition "experts" tell me the reason is in the Mozilla programs rather than in the voice recognition software that I use.

Whether or not this is correct, I do not know. However, I don't want to be forced back to the Microsoft browser and email client, and so have posed my question to you.

I'm not sure exactly where this question should go, so apologies if I picked the wrong category. As far as I can tell, it fits into 'other problems': So I was getting an 'unresponsive script on page, do you want to stop it' dialogue for a Facebook page I frequent. Got sick of telling FF to stop the script every time, so I checked the 'do not ask again' box, hoping it would automatically just stop the script whenever it became a problem. Well, it's working a little too well. Now the page loads zero content. I'm just wondering how to 'undo' checking that box. Is there maybe a line in about:config I can look for, some setting I can adjust, to reset the 'do not ask again' option on 'stop unresponsive script' dialogues? Thanks in advance for any help!

We are logging on to a site that we need in order to do business but we are having issues. Initially we were getting a shield next to the back button. We would try to click the shield and disable but the page would still repeatedly reload. I did a little digging and with to about:config and disabled the mixed content security options. This removed the shield but the page still refreshed rapidly (100+x a minute). To get to the page I needed, I needed to log in, then on the next page click a button. Once on that page there were no issues. The page after logging in is where the refreshing was happening. There was a security window that came up near the back button. after clicking on it it told me that the connection is partially encrypted. Another window also told me that this website does not supply ownership info and it was verified by Not Specified. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling FF. What should my next steps be.

Accidentally (2 days ago) deleted my firefox browsing history by running CC Cleaner on windows 8.1. The index.dat reader I use tells me that Win 8 doesn't use such files anymore. The "places.sql" file in my profile folder has all my history in it. But it still doesn't show up in the history tab or the search bar (the dropdown display of matches, when I type a few characters) i.e the browser acts like there ain't no history. The history tab shows just 2 days' history !! yelp!!
