why does 3.6.13 cut off part of each printed page 3.6.12 ok on computers we haven't upgraded, IE okay on all machines

After I upgraded two of our computers (both running Vista) to Firefox 3.6.13 I noticed that the top was cut off of printed web pages to all printers. I tried IE(8.0.6001) and it printed correctly on both. This had not been a problem using 3.6.12, in fact another one of our Vista computers had not been upgraded and it still printed correctly. I've done nothing to printing preferences to either of the computers running 3.6.13 and compared all settings to the 3.6.12 computer and they're identical.

When there is only one tab, using Ctrl F4 will close firefox and cancel all downloads. This happens when clearing a few tabs and pressing Ctrl F4 a bit too long. Alt F4 gives a warning that firefox is still downloading, just Ctrl F4 just doesn't. Ctrl F4 is supposed to close a tab, it should not terminate firefox in the first place. It should leave a blank tab after the last tab is closed, or, if you insist it must close firefox, then give a downloading warning just like with Alt F4. I suppose there is no way to change this? If so where can I make a complaint so it gets fixed?

When using Facebook in Firefox (doesn't happen with IE), anytime I click to view previous comments to a post or to play an inbedded video, a question box appears asking "are you sure you want to navigate away from this page". Any ideas?

The problem occurs only with Firefox. Answering 'Yes' to the question box simply opens Facebook in another tab where the problem persists.

For some reason I cannot open a new tab unless I right click on a hyperlink on the existing tab and select "open in new tab". When I click "File/New Tab" nothing happens. When I click the plus sign on the tab list nothing happens. When I press Ctrl T nothing happens.

By the way, IE has the same problem and started at the same time.

I am rebuilding my win xp pro pc after a trojan horse killed it (it was ugly!). I want to avoid installing Internet Explorer at all and install Firefox as my only browser. How can I get a complete installation file so I can run it from a disc and get on the web without any other browser installed on my computer. I don't know if this is possible or not, but I hope it is. The only other computer that I have is a MAC portable and I can't get to Windows possibilities on the Firefox site. Any one got any help for me? thanks, Michael

I'm a novice at this but found where you could create a custom persona after right clicking fox mask and add a picture. It looks like you can add text too (it says default text color), but I couldn't figure it out. How would I do this? Also are there step-by-step instructions online for creating a more robust custom persona? Thank you so much!

When I opened Firefox, got a popup from Product Testers asking 3 questions: gender, how many social networks I use, and how many hours/week do I spend on social networks. After answering the questions, I was given a choice of 3 too-good-to-be-true gifts: a $1000 gift card, and iPhone4 or an iPad. Then I was asked for cell phone and email address. I stopped at that point, beginning to question the wisdom of what I was doing and the validity of the request.

I've re-downloaded multiple times, changed to Foxfire default online AND on my control panel setting etc and each time i open Foxfire it acts like I never downloaded anything or that it ever WAS made default. It did permit me to make my Comcast acct. as home site. I am so fed up with Chrome, don't trust Internet Exp. anymore and had so hoped that returning to Mozilla Foxfire would be the answer to my woes.

Needless to say, I'm not much of a techie, and I sure do wish I hadn't gone from Foxfire to Chrome in the first place!  : ( Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
