I am on arch linux i386, firefox update from 15 to 16.0.1 erased all my extensions. I tried to install them again, also tried it with the firefox 17beta, nothing works. If I could find the binaries for v15 to check if it is the same there I would try it.

My profile is still loaded, bookmarks and history is here, but all addons are gone.

Periodically, including right now, Firefox displays the Google search navigation tree horizontally verses the usual vertical layout/display. I've noticed it tends to be after a computer restart, and obviously isn't always an issue.

The horizontal navigation limits display options particularly in Google images compared to the vertical.

first i removed header and footer, and set the all margins to be found in about:config(Linux) or in Dialog (Windows) to zero.

On all html documents i get a little gap on the top of the first page, but not on the second one. The gap appears on paper print, on file print(PDF) and on preview - under firefox (17.0) for Linux and Windows. IE 8 on windows has other abnormalities, but equal top margin on all printed pages.

How can i remove this difference top margins between first page and the following once in firefox ?

I can find nothing online to tell me whether migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 8 will cause me significant problems in running FF (latest beta version) with extensions. Is this likely to be a major, minor or non-issue?

I've gone under the Customize options screen and moved it to where I want it, however every time I'm done editing, the icon is still on the far right side of my screen. However I want it on the left so that as I open folders within my Bookmarks they all lay out nicely. Not each box on top of the other as it's currently doing. Am I stuck with it on the right or do I need to reinstall Firefox?

Hello,

Right now, my browser is formatted such that the tabbar is on top. This works fine but there is a tiny gap of a few pixels from the top of my screen to the top of the tab. This results in not being able to move my mouse to the top of the screen and selecting tabs. Is there some way to remove it so that I can select tabs even with my mouse at the top limit of my screen?

Also, when I have two or more tabs opened at the same time, the whole info bar (where the tab bar and nav toolbar sit) shifts downwards. For instance, when I have one tab open, the whole info bar is X height. But when I open a new tab, it widens to an X+ height. If I close this new tab, it will shrink back to X height. How can I fix this?

Thank you for you're help
