I just installed Ubuntu 10.4 on a new partition on my hard drive and booted into Linux. File/Import (Bookmarks) almost started but the next screen reported "no programs that contain bookmarks, history (etc) can be found". That worked back in Version 1.x as could browse to location. Aagh!

Erratic text editing in Firefox 3.6.3 after upgrade from 2.x

I upgraded to Firefox 3.6.3 because of slow flash player activity, and that was not resolved (Slow CPU, Pentum SSE2 machine). Configuration still identifies browser as Mozilla 2.0.1 -- but browser is clearly upgraded version with skins and new features working, etc .

When I attempt to edit text (UTF locale, but US only or foreign doesn't matter) the cursor in the web based text edit boxes (eg: Forums) becomes mis-aligned and off by 1/2 to one character, the graphics of the character are repeatedly rendered offset from proper position causing "ghost" characters. In the rendering of Forums when not being edited, occasional characters overlap as well confusing the spelling of words. etc.

Wrong rendering does not appear in normal HTML pages, but only in ones created by standard forums software. Vbulletin, etc. The problem is especially acute on a couple of sites devoted to religious/inter-religious dialog -- problem does not exist in 2.x versions of Mozilla; but I prefer not to downgrade.

I have a laptop that I upgraded: ubuntu8.10 -> ubuntu9.0.4 java stopped working in yahoo bridge. (firefox = 3.0.19) I followed Sun's instructions putting the link to the correct .so file to java6u20 plugin but that did not help. I tried clearing cache. still nothing. I have another PC with firefox3.0.19 and there is no java plugin but there are two flash plugins (1 free, the other non-free) it is at ubuntu8.10 and java is working just fine in that firefox. I have followed all of firefox's steps for enabling java in the preferences dropdown. I can provide more details if you need them.

Other browsers on the same laptop work fine.

Any link or button which is processed with Javascript causes firefox to hang. Its window doesn't responsing, however, after some seconds, a small window (that seems like a js-alert window) is shown. This window has 2 buttons, but there's no text in a whole window. Window's title in taskbar is just "Untitled window". If i close this window, firefox hangs again for a few seconds (the main window is having artifacts of other windows until that small window will be shown again)

In certain cases, after i kill the main window process, there is appeared the requested by link window.

I've got these bugs on Gmail options page, for example (but that trouble finding me everywhere on the net, on forums, sites, portals etc.)

I've tried to disable all the plugins, remove my ~/.mozilla, rebuilding firefox – no results.

Firefox is built on Gentoo linux OS. `emerge --info firefox` can be found here: http://pastie.org/1318950

Here are some screenshots: http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/86fd071c0143d6977f9bce91585da346.png http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/128419a536bec6e65a940e0546aa6741.png

Because of eye problems, I have a very hard time seeing these icons. In fact, I can't. I just figured they had to be there and moused over them. While this works for me, I am building this box to donate to a nursing home where many residents have worse eyesight than mine, and no familiarity with computers. Is there a way to darken the color of the icons? Thanks.

To understand why I'm making this ? you need to know the following:

  1. 1 I'm using a VAIO notebook that has no hdd, so I'm booting up from a Lucid Puppy 5.8 live cd;
  2. 2 have a 128MB CFCard with 2 versions of FF, a PET (not updated) & FF ver 3.6.13 that I recently downloaded & unzipped (because thought it was going to contain an updated ver od Flash - which is the one I'm using right now);
  3. 3 as you might already see, every time I start-up the system have to login to every site again & sometimes check for login-data for certain sites which I don't visit often.

I understand that if, before I shutdown the system, I save these data the next time I'll be taken faster to those sites without having to remember all the login data. I'm interested in saving the cookies, a Master PWD & the individual pwds for the sites. Any other data that you know of & you point out that'll be needed for my purposes that I'm not aware of will be appreciated. Thanks in advanced for any help on this! PS. This OS runs from RAM (which is at 512MB).

When I start FF4 on Fedora 8, I am getting this error: ./firefox ./firefox-bin: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by /tmp/firefox/libxul.so)

Indeed, libstdc++ supplied with Fedora 8 is old:

strings /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 | grep GLIBCXX GLIBCXX_3.4 GLIBCXX_3.4.1 GLIBCXX_3.4.2 GLIBCXX_3.4.3 GLIBCXX_3.4.4 GLIBCXX_3.4.5 GLIBCXX_3.4.6 GLIBCXX_3.4.7 GLIBCXX_3.4.8 GLIBCXX_FORCE_NEW

If I try to install libstdc++ from other distribution, I am getting other dependency problems (libc and others)

How do I run FF4 on Fedora 8?

I go to my Credit Union site and my accounts come up. And I can get into my accounts. But the menu that lets you, among other things, go to online banking doesn't. At the bottome of the page it says "starting applet" and then immediately "applet not initialized." How do I get it initialized? I think, but am not really sure, that it has something to do with Java.

Hi,

I thought I had done this before, but now I cannot figure out if it works or not, as I don't see anywhere to change it. Sometimes I'll subscribe to a group or something, and the emails they send seem to overwhelm the inbox. If this is a Firefox feature, I need to figure out how to do it (again?). If not, I may just not subscribe to any more boards!

In other words, check the address. If the address has "@xxx.com" in it, put in in THIS folder. I'm not sure if this is a Firefox thinh, or if I need to use the ISP!

Thanks.

Hi there,

This website's really twisting my mind: I posted some question some time ago and there is no way to get back to it because my dashboard is empty and there is no apparent link to the questions section of this website. Thanks to Google I sneaked my way through https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions and then only I could find my question again.

Turning in circles again and again on a website is not nice for the end user. I know you seem to want people to go through your troubleshooting process---which I can understand, but all I want is to review my already asked question.

It would be nice if you added some link somewhere---if I missed it, please point it out to me.

I would rather not re-write the old IDE's I've been using for years but rather replace them with html/xml web style pages. Konqueror will locally execute binaries with a launcher script. Firefox, Chrome, re-Konq, WebPositive, and IE Explorer will not. If Firefox or SeaMonkey would execute my binaries I could easily replace the old IDE's and save myself and my clients a lot of time and money.
