Please "forward" this to the Firefox development team for consideration!

Proposing the dialog box text should become:

"Firefox is designed by Mozilla, a global community of contributors and developers, all working together to keep the Web open, public, and accessible to all."

The added comma after "public" above, is referred to as an "Oxford comma" (see Rule #1 at http://www.grammarbook.com/punctuation/commas.asp ). It should be used because this section is a three-part adjectival series with "open," "public," and "accessible" each referring back to how "the Web" should be kept for us all!

As with Boolean ANDing, using "public and accessible" without a comma after "public," binds them together to tightly for a three part series of adjectives!

This support webpage cannot upload a screenshot for some reason, but you all know how to see the about dialog in Firefox for yourselves! Someone should please also add what types of images work best for uploading screenshots next to "Add Images:" on this submission webpage too.

Thanks!

It all started when I wanted to print a recipe for dinner from my laptop to our lexmark wireless printer. i was able to print it but it was faint b/c "low on black ink'" was the reason ... new ink cartridge was installed - but "low on black ink" popped up. So hubby put in new ink cartridge but "low on black ink" showed up again. he restarted/cleaned the printer. still same message. he called lexmark "customer service" and hubby followed their directions for 4 hours. then i was told to quit firefox - i had many pages open b/c of our home remodel project so that i could show our contractor what i wanted. i was in the final stages of putting links in a folder when i was told to quit firefox. how do i retrieve those links. there's no history to restore.

It's frustrating that Firefox sync doesn't include toolbar customisation data. It's otherwise a great piece of functionality that means when installing Firefox I don't have to set anything up apart from remembering to rearrange the buttons to my preference. This also goes for whether the menu and bookmarks toolbar are displayed.

When I'm completing online training for my airline work, I get a warning from their site detecting that it is running firefox 36 instead of adobe flash and I can't proceed to launch the window which will work just fine outside of firefox. Is there a way I can disable firefox 36 so that it doesn't use the mozilla version but only uses adobe flash player to launch the app?

Recently I've lost the ability to use the options available with a right click on a bookmark in the main menu bookmarks. I can't move them around up or down, can't delete any either. The weird thing is in assorted bookmarks I'm having no problems at all. Do you have any advice to help me, I want to thank you in advance for any help you might be able to give me with this problem. I have installed the latest update sent to me to no avail.

Issues with search engines and Adblock

Regardless of which search engine, I look something up, go to the page I'm interested in, and if it's not useful, click 'back' to take me back to the list of relevant results on the search engine (Google, Bing, etc.). The page I'm currently on will not allow me to go back, instead refreshing its own page.

In addition, despite reinstalling Firefox and Adblock (plus or reg) and checking the relevant updates/software, etc., within the last few weeks I've been receiving ad 'boxes' (void of actual ads but taking up the space where they would typically be) on every page I visit.

I'm not happy, but I love Mozilla and want to continue to support you.
