Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

I don't have a question, just a suggestion for others with a similar issue.

I recently upgraded to FF 17.0. I also tried a couple of new extensions because my old ones were incompatible. It seems that one of the new extensions installed Ask.com on any New Tabs that I opened. I searched for a fix and could only come up with

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/837470

I started FF in Safe Mode with everything disabled and it still happened. I removed all the new extensions and it still happened.

Finally, I figured something out that DID work. If you are having a similar problem, try this:

Type "about:config" into the address bar.

Type "ask" into the Search bar.

Find the following entry:

browser.newtab.url

Double-click on it and simply delete the value. Now all of your New Tabs will open to a blank page. Or, if you want a different page, type in the address (e.g. google.com, bing,com, etc.).

Problem solved.

Win 7 Starter -- FF17 I enter F11 and the screen sort-of goes full-screen. The title bar remains -- and does not update when going from tab to tab -- so I'm guessing that it is a cosmetic bug associated with the release of 17.

I am trying to to figure how to select multiple items (email addresses) using firefox on a mac. I use a web based manage my business. I am trying to send emails to multiple people.

I have tried clicking on the first email and hold the command key while selecting the others. The selection just jumps.

I tried holding the shift key and and it selects everything between the 1st and 2nd email address I want to use.

I also tried the control key which just brings up a menu.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently changed to a wide screen monitor, hoping to use it to view multiple windows at one time. Now, however, the windows are just really wide. I tried to change the window size, but then I just ended up having to use a horizontal scroll bar-- which is really inconvenient for me. So, can I change the window settings so they just don't fill my whole screen? I'm not super computer savvy. Thanks for helping!

Win7 Pinning Private Browsing Command Line Icon to taskbar in addition to the regular one?

I have a habit of keeping all my often used apps on the taskbar and keeping the desktop clean save a few folders contained overly organized shortcuts/shortcuts to hard drives for all downloads,rar extractions, general workspace and pretty pictures and this minor thing is bugging the crap out of me.

I basically want to pin the command line shortcut with its different icon to the taskbar in addition to the normal one because I use firefox so frequently I don't want to right click,go through the tools or have it on the desktop eating away at my soul! Single click from taskbar a must :)

I know its possible somehow but I don't have the first clue on what to do. If anyone else has a similar compulsion and has figured it out pretty please hold my hand through this.

I answer emails based on my priority. Sorting unread emails to the top helped me to remember to deal with all unread emails, however old. I opened Firefox this morning and that easy sort facility has been removed. Why? I have unread emails going back a month or two. How do I easily find them now? Also I sorted on the star on the right. That has been removed as well. Why? Keith
