I scanned some documents and wanted to send them to a website. When I get to Web Publishing Wizard it asks me to select a service provider to host. The only thing it shows is MSN. I no longer have this service. How do I get Firefox to be my provider?

I keep updating Firefox, but I never have the option to choose my country.

In the search bar, I cannot seem to select a different version of Google...

This seems so simple and yet I can't figure it out. Saw something on character encoding, but cannot find that in the settings.

Thanks!

Is there a way to download Firefox 4 without going on a 3rd party site? Many of my addons do not work with Firefox 5 and 6.

Quite a few of my addons don't work with firefox 6, and I would prefer to keep them, but my pc crashed and I had to reformat. I don't want to have to go on a 3rd party site, since they could easily put a virus on my pc. I couldn't find anywhere to download it on the site. Thanks

How do I make a feature request for Firefox? Need for "Keep this website" in right-click menu for History viewing.

During my daily Firefox sessions (w/over 300 RSS feeds), I commonly visit about 50 web sites. At the end of a session I may only want to keep one or a few history entries and have to manually delete the rest. I always keep one in particular.

It would be infinitely easier if the capability of "Keep this Site" option were available in the right-click menu which would mean deleting the remainder of the history entries not marked to be kept, in conjunction with the History delete options in Firefox Preferences.

Note: This is a real User need I have, and possibly many others would like the versatility.

Firefox will not close completely

To Whom:

ever since firefox upgraded to version 5 and now to version 6 I have an issue with the "firefox is already running, but is not responding. To Open a new window, you must first close the existing firefox process, or restart your system."

I have became a master at the ctrl-alt-delete and ending the firefox process, but I have to say that this is becoming very annoying and frustrating (specially when I need to check something quickly on my computer).

I've been an avid user for years. I just looked at Google Chrome and was disappointed with that program because it does not have the features that I have relied on for so long with Firefox.

I've been through the firefox help. I was unable to find the parent.lock file in my profile. I tried deleting my profile and recreating the profile. I have deleted the entire program twice now and reinstalled and basically I am left with the same issue.

I must say the definition of insanity is starting to show. Any additional help / correction would be beneficial. If I need to send you my computer diagnostics I can send via hijack this or any other program you need.

I want to get this resolved so that I can continue using firefox and enjoy using the program.

sincerely Daniel Schwerin, MD

This started yesterday in the middle of a session. If I move the cursor to the very top of the page the tab line comes back, but only as long as the cursor is there. Otherwise I have a full screen, which I don't like. I resized it and in the smaller size it's fine. I logged off & back on yesterday, no help, and just logged on for today and it's the same thing. I opened Explorer just to see if it happened there, it didn't.

I tried upgrading to firefox 4.x and was no longer able to log in to several forums. I've heard this problem exist for other members too. So I went back to 3.6 and it worked again. I like Firefox very much and want to keep my system up to date but I need to have access to the forums that I moderate.

The unknown user agent message happens with all higher versions then 3.6. I hope this can be solved or that there is a proper workaround.

Best regards, Paul

I click on the bookmarks menu which has several sub-menus. If I want to go to, say, the third sub-menu, I have to scroll right to it. If I stop, even briefly, at the first or second my cursor stops and will not move further down (or back up). I have to exit the menu and try again.
