I use the "about:" page as my home page (have been since Netscape 4.6 :-)). The Firefox variants used to contain a link to Mozilla, via the image, that I used for a quick check of the current Firefox release. It also contained a link to the release notes. The links are not there anymore. I was wondering why?

When my Firefox was updated to the latest version I was no longer able to print, save images and more! I tried downgrading at least 6 times with a few different versions with no success. When I look at my "about:config" page there is NO reference to "print_printer". I do see many references to my default printer, but I can NOT print or save any images. When everything works Firefox should be left alone!

i.e,

after i've initially synced, i'm wondering if like chronosync does...... say I move some unsorted bookmark links into a bookmark folder i created, during my next sync will firefox make two copies of this bookmark link now on each device? let me try and explain - so one will be added into that folder on the other device because it's missing (not yet sorted into the folder) but will the bookmark also be added back to the unsorted tabs of the device on which i moved it originally, because on the other machine the bookmark will be present because i haven't sorted yet. so in the essence i now have two copies of the link on each device which is not what i want. hope i'm making sense, i'm confused after typing this. thanks in advance.
