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.

My location bar has vanished. I also don't have a Forward or Back arrow. I tried updating but it didn't help. Anyone know where it's gone? (I've got Version 7 and Windows Vista, I think.)

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!

A friend of mine occasionally runs into a web page that causes him problems. To be sure, he should note the URL and submit a bug report if a page causes a browser crash, but in any case, while by default he likes the browser to restore windows and tabs from the previous session, in the case of an obnoxious web page, you *don't* want that to happen. I'm hoping that I can set up an icon for him to click on that will start the browser up on his home page instead of restoring previous windows and tabs when he gets into trouble.

I have firefox and it's having a strange problem today. When I'm on facebook, I can't click on the icons at the top. I can't click the message, friend request, notifications, home, profile icons and can't click the one that allows you to sign out. So i can't even sign out. What I mean by can't click is when I put the cursor over those icons, it doesn't change into the finger. When I left click it anyway, nothing happens. This doesn't happen in internet explorer, but I want to keep using firefox. What's causing this? I also noticed that this doesn't just happen on facebook. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox. I restarted the PC. It didn't help.

When I access the internet, there is about a two-inch strip across my screen, below the toolbar that is not responding to my mouse. The nonresponsive section is located where I log on to Facebook, but, the problem is on every webpage.

For example, on the Firefox Help page, my mouse can't select the options in the blue section at the top of the page.

Every web page and the top of the bookmark sidebar when open does not respond to the mouse. Everything above the browser wind seems to work fine, and everything below the top 1 1/2 inches at top of page seems fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 7.0.1 without any change. The initial update to 7.0.1 did not seem to have any issues, and I don't know exactly when this changed.
