When I open a new tab and display a website, is there any way I can if I want to make the page fill half the screen so when I open another tab I can have the option to do that on the new website so in effect I have two tabs open with one website on the left and the other website on the right, I know I can drag the corner of the page and make it fill only half the screen then open another window and do the same with that tab, but just wondered if there was either a plugin or shortcut rather than carefully dragging so both fit on the page, and if it can be done with having only one window open. Hope that makes sense! I am using apple macbook pro with firefox.

I have looked at the KB on this issue but none of them seem to answer my problem. I have a late model Macbook Pro undated OS. No addons. I am UNABLE to bookmark in anyway. That is not just save, I am not able with any method I am aware of to bookmark. If I click on the star icon it does not fill in. If I use shortcut keys the Bookmarks menu item highlights while I hold the key combo down. If I use the pull down menu nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated.

When trying to forward and e-mail or retrieve it from "drafts" more often than not only the heading will appear and the space where the body of the e-mail belongs is empty. If I try repeatedly - going out and then back in to the e-mail - I can eventually get it and successfully send it on. If I send it while the field is blank the person receiving it will just get a blank e-mail except for the address and subject line.

This happened

A few times a week

whenever i close firefox (osx 10.6.3, firefox 3.6.6), i come back to find the history gone. i've looked for answers and tried all sorts: my prefs all are set to saving history, i'm not set to start in private browsing, i've downloaded a new copy of firefox and replaced the old, and following advice from a forum i went into about.config and checked that general.useragent was not in bold, it wasn't. the problem even persisted when i recently upgraded from osx tiger to snow leopard

the weirdest thing is that using history>show all history, it is completely blank when i start up. but if i type stuff into the url bar, it comes up with history results (not bookmarks, i've checked) that i haven't visited in months, years even, there's history results for maps for a game i sold 2 years ago

I went through the features and add-ons available with recent (approx. 1 month ago) UPDATE of Firefox. One thing I chose was a gimmick that adds color and graphics to (I believe) the SHELL of all pages. I don't really like it: find it too hard to read my tool bar and other info at top. I want to REMOVE THIS and have STANDARD SHELL. I can find NOTHING within my preferences that will lead me to the (NO idea what it is called) add-on involved. I want to know HOW TO FIND IT and HOW to REMOVE IT. Thanks!!
