I run multiple tab that monitor various tools. These pages refresh themselves. The pages have to wait for each other to finish before they can start.

In version 28 this was fine. The page would just wait indefinitely and kick in when a previous page finished doing its thing.

Now in version 29 it returns with a "The connection has timed out" message after some minutes.

I have adjusted

network.http.connection-timeout network.http.pipelining.read-timeout

to high values but problem is still occurring. Any thoughts on how I can return the behavior to FF28?

How do I move the page refresh button back over to the left where it belongs next to home and navigation? It is absolute silly to have some buttons on one side of the address bar and some on the other. It seem some dumb ass coder decided that docking the reload button to the address bar was a great idea.

How do I search a specific bookmark? No, not "sort" bookmarks to find it (I don't know in which of the many folders it is located). I need some kind of search field, or similar, where I type words in the name of the bookmark. This existed in FF28 but I can't find it in 29.

Thank you!

I had hebrew calendar in the status bar of Firefox 28 and it was very useful for me. In Firefox 29 it's impossible to use it. I will probably go back to FFox 28 if I can't solve in 29. Thanks a lot in advance.

I have used Expedia many times in the past without difficulty. Recently, however, whenever I try to search for flights on Expedia, I get a message that says "Sorry, we're having a problem on our end. Please try your search again later". But I'm able to search without problem from other computers. I've cleared my cache, cookies, and browsing history. I'm using the most recent version of Firefox. I had let some people borrow my laptop recently to check gmail accounts, but I've logged them out of everything. Any suggestions?

Every time i try to open gmail it gives:

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Otherwise all other Google products work fine! Only gmail is not working.

Today firefox shut itself down and then apparently "fixed" itself by updating without asking me since it looks completely different now than it did before it crashed. My biggest problem is that now that it's on version 29 I can't open a new tab. There's nothing in the menu to do that, I can't use a ctrl+T to open one and clicking on the little + tab next to the existing tabs does nothing. I can switch between existing tabs and close existing tabs, but that's it! The only way I have of getting any kind of additional tab is to open a bookmark or right-click on a link, but I can't start a new one from scratch. Anyone have an idea of what could be wrong?

My home page is set for Mozilla Firefox Start Page, but when I start Firefox, I am automatically redirected to: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?shva=1#inbox, which takes me to my Gmail account instead of my home page. I have tried resetting the default, but nothing has changed. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but that didn't work either. I have checked my computer for any suspicious programs, but I can't seem to find any. Is this a malware that i can't find? This has been occurring for about 3 weeks now and it is very frustrating. I don't want to automatically open my e-mail. Can you help me fix this problem. Thank you.

Running FF 29.01 on Windows 7. You can see the image linked below for a comparison of how browsers should render font and how my browser actually renders font. It is not a magnification issue. I've already installed the Anti-Aliasing Tuner extension. I've added the layout.paint_rects_separately boolean as well.

Various websites I regularly use are no longer working properly in this latest version of Firefox. When I go to my bank website and click on a link to give me a printable version of my statements, nothing happens. The javascript is javascript:printVersion()

I am at a loss because it looks like javascript is enabled by all the measures I can see. Anyone know what the issue would be?

How can I make Firefox use another installed Java runtime version?

For development purposes I have several Java runtime versions on my Windows 7 64 bit machine. I try to keep the number of installed JDKs and JREs to a minimum and I want Firefox to use JRE 1.7.0_21 (32 bit) since this came with a JDK version I am forced to use for another application.

Firefox however uses JRE 1.6.0_31, and correctly reports this as insecure. It offers me the option to upgrade, but I do not want to download and install another JRE since I already have said JRE 1.7.0_21 installed. I would highly prefer to just be able to point Firefox to that JRE. I don't see an option to select another installed JRE however.

I have already attempted to manually modify the pluginreg.dat file (I know, it says Do not edit...) by changing the JRE 1.6 entries to JRE 1.7, but upon restart my edits were overwritten and the old JRE was back. As a result I cannot view certain web sites (also corporate/internal) without having to switch to lesser browsers.

Please let me know how I can make Firefox use the already installed JRE 1.7.

I do not like the new tools feature, liked the toolbar better. I can no longer zoom to the required %, only is in whole numbers by 10's. Sometimes need to use in between setting to get pages to display right and be readable. Can't figure out how to do that. You cannot click in the 100% box and change it, only the + and - buttons.

I'm still on XP on this older PC, this all started because of this stupid bing toolbar that has infecting many computers, and I started unistalling a few programs that looked like they didn't belong, I ended up getting rid of the bing but now I have a much bigger problem, I still have my adobe flash player of course, all the sudden when I go to a site like wiziwig.tv to stream baseball games it just doesn't work. I tried system restore to a previous date but that wiped out all my bookmarks and everything. I just think there is some file or program I need as I've been streaming shows at sights like watchseries.ch until today. If that bing toolbar hadn't came out of nowhere I'd be watching right now!

just updated to firefox 29.0.1. now i can't highlight and print a selection. I can highlight a section, but when i hit the print button it goes to a print preview page, the highlighting is gone, it shows the full web page(on which i can't highlight), then when i hit print again i get the print properties menu, but it won't let me choose "selection" in print range- obviously because my "selection" disappears when i go to print preview page. Can anyone out there help? I would sure appreciate any tips! Thanks.
