Whenever I type in a URL, I don't usually bother to add http://www. in the URL. This has always worked for me up until a couple of weeks ago. Now, when I don't include this, the URL automatically switches to "https://www." format. For example, when I type "example.com" in the URL bar, it automatically makes the URL "https://www.example.com/". I do not have any add-ons or extensions installed that should cause this problem.

Hey,

I downloaded some program the other day but removed it again. Yet my browser opens up my new tabs with the URL: http://newtab.certified-toolbar.com/nff/?si=41460&tid=592&new=true How do I change it back? I've just updated my browser to the latest version and thought that might fix it but it didn't. I've also tried to mail those powering the website above but my mail failed to be delivered. I'm tired of the page - please help. :-)

I recently bought a new computer and downloaded FireFox. When adding my favorite sites to my bookmark, the names are automatically added. They're too long, and I'd like to edit them, however FF isn't letting me right click to edit the name.

When I right click, it just goes to that bookmark as if I used left-click. The right click on the computer itself works, but not when trying to edit anything in a toolbar.

Any suggestions?

firefox crashes when opening a new window

Firefox opens normally and runs properly -- until I close all its windows. When zero windows are present, and I return to Firefox and ask for a new window, Firefox hangs. To resolve the problem I must Force Quit the app, which generates a crash report to Apple. Occasionally Firefox has crashed on its own and generated a crash report to Mozilla, but this is rare. I have tried disabling all add-ons, but that had no effect.

As long as there is at least one Firefox window open, the app functions normally. This problem only occurs when going from zero windows to one window.

Firefox won't allow me to print a Web Page. The only option I am given is to Save the Web Page as a PDF File .

In FF 16.0.1 when I try to print a web page I get dialog box to save it as PDF. There is no other choice in the ‘save as type’ box. I do not want to save it; I just want to print it. This happens whether I use ‘file/print’ or the print button on FF. I use Win XP and HP all in one C7280 and no changes have been made recently to either. I looked for FF add- on to disable called ‘hp smart web printer’ that I read about in a closed FF support thread about this same problem but it is not on plug-in or add-on list. I also read in another closed thread on this issue to remove SWP using add/remove programs but its not listed. I believe this problem began when FF upgraded itself to 16.0.1 recently. The problem does not exist when I use I.E. or Chrome so logically it must be a FF issue. Its driving me crazy and I cannot find a solution that works anywhere. HELP please.

Ever since somewhere around the last FF update, I have been unable to upload pics to ebay. The ebay app appears to be uploading; in fact, it says it has finished. But the pic doesn't appear. If I use IE, it works with no problem. The odd thing is that when I use FF on my other PC, I can upload pics to ebay with no problem.

Another odd thing is that when the upload window appears, it immediately hides itself behind the main window instead of being in front.

Short version: Is there a way of retieving the list of installed add-ons by just looking at the files in the profile folder, without starting firefox?

Long version: Ok, I did a very dumb thing: I installed Waterfox, decided I didn't need it and when I uninstalled it I check "delete all settings". I didn't realize it was sharing all the settings with Firefox.

The funny (...) thing is that Firefox was running at the time, and it kept running without complaining for 4 days... today I closed it, open it again and... everything was gone!

I was able to "undelete" the old profile folder, recovering most of the files in there. Using them, I managed to restore my browsing session... the most important thing.

Now, I would like to re-install all the add-ons I had before. However, many of them were installed long ago, and often they were chosen among similar ones with similar names after trying them all. So, it will save me a lot of time and effort if I could retrieve the list of installed add-ons from the "undeleted" profile folder... any idea? FYI, I tried to just copy the old profile folder onto the new one, but I run a in a lot of problems... so, started from scratch again and just restored the session, and now I wondering how I can obtain the list of add-ons from the old profile, to be able to re-install them...

Thanks

Giacomo
