have an up to date Firefox and was able to print to HP printer from internet until recently. I can print from internet using Safari so am sure that the problem is in some setting from Firefox. The printer is chosen in preferences and it seems to send a message to printer but only blank paper comes out....and ideas of what to try would be appreciated!

When I receive an attached document (Word or OpenOffice), I click on it. I get a Norton Antivirus window that says it's clear and I click on the yellow Download button. Then nothing happens. 1. I don't get the windows that asked Open? or Save?. 2. The documents are not in the Download folder. 3. I reset the downloads to my Documents folder - nothing appears there either. 4. I search my iMac with the file names, and no results show up.

On several sites I have been alerted that I need to install the Adobe Flash Player plugin 10.3.183.7 in order to seeing everything correctly. When I select the install button, I get the message that it could not be installed and that I had to install it manually. Selecting any choices within the dropdown gets no response. And, interestingly, I already have Adobe Flash Player 11.0.1.152 (the latest one) installed on my computer. How do I install this plug in?

UPDATE: Problem Solved. For some reason cookies from nytimes.com were marked "block" in the Preferences>Privacy list. I'm not sure how this happened, since it was not a site I would have blocked.

In Firefox 7.0.1 running on Mac 10.6.8 I get stuck in loops at the New York Times nytimes.com log in. This is not a problem in Safari, but Firefox has Zotero. I have cleared cookies, cleared the cache, and re-started in safe-mode (add-ons disabled), and I still have the problem.

Greetings,

Firefox used to automatically fill in the username and password when I went to a particular log-in form. Now I have to start typing the username, or press the down-arrow key to view them. How can I get Firefox to automatically show my username and password again?

Thanks, Shane.

I can't think of any more details, but I used to have normal Firefox with a location bar, and now I don't. At the top of my page I have "most visited" and a tab bar. At the bottom I have "secure search". I'm having to get to all URLS by searching for them.

I can not print from Firefox, but can from all other browsers and applications (such as MS Word, notepad, etc.). I get a print error on the printing monitor like it's a spooling problem.

This is a recent development but I can not print anything from within Firefox. The print functions open normally, it is going to the correct printer which works..I can print from other browsers and applications. It acts like it is spooling and then a print error occurs and it won't print. I closed and reopened Firefox, opened it in safe mode, cleaned out history/cache/cookies, and rebooted twice. Nothing makes any difference. Also tried printing from the print preview which had the same result. I can print from all other browsers and applications without a problem so it must be within Firefox.

I use Firefox 13 with Ubuntu 12.04 in two different computer, a desktop and a netbook. In general I have same extensions and preferences in both PC.

In only one of them I cannot display Google maps anymore (the embedded objects in non-Google site), getting this error popoup (ITA): "Questo sito web richiede una chiave API di Google Maps differente. È possibile generare una nuova chiave all'indirizzo http://code.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html .".

I cannot understand - after googling for a while - if it is a matter of Firefox settings or other OS-related issue (e.g. the java machine).

Firefox 7.0.1. Windows7 Pro 64. Yesterday I was streaming audio from sky.fm and noticed that the navigation toolbar back arrow stopped responding and has not responded since. FF restart, computer reboot, same problem. Private browsing has never been used, i.e. the history file is fine. Using it is the only way to go back to a previous page or site. The only visual indication that the arrow has been clicked is that the firefox icon in the tool tray dims. All other indications are normal. The present url is displayed, and FF is responsive to any link clicks going forward--just not back. Any ideas? Thanks, John.

I'm starting the second instance from the system tray icon which in the past created an independently running instance allowing me to login as a different user and maintain a different memory foot print. Can this still be done in FF 7?

Launch an instance, login to my site. Launch second instance. Navigate to my site. FF behaves as if I'm already logged in.

This wasn't an issue, following these same steps, in previous FF version (4, I think).

Recently switched over from Internet Explorer. One of things I liked about IE was if I adjusted some of the tabbed browsing settings, whenever I opened a link in a new tab, it opened it at the very end of the tab bar. No tab grouping, no opening next to the current tab. Seems like a pretty simple thing, but I just can't figure out how to set that up in Firefox.

Any suggestions on how to take care of that? Thanks!
