To understand better i'll show in images:

1) Change these bars

2) Change navigation toolbar

  • Navigation toolbar is in menu bar, because menus can't be dragged

3) And it should look something like this

  • Is it possible?

Solution would be moving menu bar to right side of the orange mozilla icon and under it would be a tab strip, but i don't know how!

P.s OK i got that by just unclicking menu bar and clicking tabs on top, but menu bar only shows while Alt pressed - how to freeze Alt function?

I have two screen shots, one of each browser. I don't see anyway to attach anything here. I did nothing to change my system when this started and the owner of the website says they made no changes during the time this changed.

I checked the knowledge base and only found one thing that might have addressed my problem. I did it anyway just to see - View, Page Style and it's set to Basic Page Style. Changing to No Style did nothing.

I understand that since Firefox 4, the number of days Firefox will retain history for is directly related to system hardware. Firefox calculates how much history to retain without impacting system performance.

I have firefox 6, now I want it to retain everything I have ever searched and entered and everything I will ever will.

I don't care if it slows it down, I want everything.

Maybe you know about a user-set preference I can use to accomplish it and override firefox default settings of removing my history :(

Thank you!

This morning as I was typing on a site, suddenly a disembodied voice started to tell me what I was doing, often interjecting "Ten four Fox Has A New Window." or "CAPS LOCK ON" followed, of course by "CAPS LOCK OFF" How did this get started--and more importantly, how do I remove the voice entirely? Did I inadvertently punch some key that starts something for the visually impaired? Help!

Using Firefox well over a year with a Lexmark printer. Switched to an Epson printer yesterday and used the Epson install disk as instructed. Tried to print 2 different items from the internet tonight and got a msg that the printer could not communicate with the PC. Called Epson who had me print a test om Notepad and print it. Printed fine. Epson said it is not a problem with the printer but rather a conflict with Internet Explorer (which I no longer use at all). Can you advise. The Epson shows as Default in my control panel and I have disconnected and reconnected my USB cable, the printer power cable and have restarted my PC.

Is anyone experiencing problems with McAfee SiteAdvisor, latest version, and Firefox v6? I have to disable SiteAdvisor so that Firefox will run properly. One thing I have noticed is, that with the current version of SiteAdvisor installed, SiteAdvisor is listed in the "Add-ons" in two places ... as an extension and as a plug-in. I don't know if SiteAdvisor was listed twice for previous versions. So .... my main question is .... is McAfee SiteAdvisor an "extension" or a "plug-in" for Firefox ? SiteAdvisor, as an extension, is showing the version of "3.4.0" and as a plug-in the version shown is 3.4.0.135. The current version of SiteAdvisor is v3.4.0.143. Please advise and thanks.

I upgraded to 6.0.1 and experimented with the tab groups. Now I cannot turn it off. It seems to force the same tabs to be opened with the next session. I had (and still have) the warn me when I close multiple tabs. It overrides that option if I click the close the window. It just closes the firefox window and reopens all the tabs with the next session. This nullifies the best feature that firefox had over chrome.

Please help me to get my old Firefox back...

When I go into Tools, Options, Privacy and set 'Use custom settings for history' and then click okay it will not save. It stays on 'Remember history', though it will save 'Never remember history' as I tested this. This seems to have happened after recent Firefox latest update. Does anyone know why I can't choose 'Use custom settings for history' as this is the setting I want to use?

Most Windows applications let you open files on the disk. They use a set of menu conventions that have been around since at least windows 3.0 back in the early 90s. What does MOZILLA do? Oh, lets throw all of that out the Window (pun intended) and leave you this vestige "Firefox" tab that you can pull down a tiny minority of those menu item.

So back to my original question: Where the fuck is the FILE-> OPEN menu?

I want to check a file on the hard disk attached to my PC. Guess what? I can't Maybe you made the menu so blindingly obvious that a software engineer with 30 years of programming experience like me just can't see the forest for all those pesky trees. I have no clue. So am I supposed to put the path into my URL window? That's easier than "File -> Open?" WTF Mozilla?

Greetings,

I'm currently experiencing a problem using JavaScript with Firefox. I can load fine JavaScript in the website, and it's enabled and everything. In that sense, JavaScript is fine.

However, when I try to run a JavaScript with the "command", "javascript:" in the browsing bar, it doesn't works anymore. I can't even do simple stuff like "javascript: alert("Hi!");". I wish to know if there is some way to fix this. I do use this "feature" pretty often to test small scripts.

Thanks.
