This has happened a few times, and every so often the new tab would reset itself, and I went back to about:config to put it back. Now it won't change at all! I've already… (read more)

This has happened a few times, and every so often the new tab would reset itself, and I went back to about:config to put it back. Now it won't change at all! I've already reset Firefox, so please don't mention that. I also tried downloading search reset with no luck either. Please don't mention those two. I need another option!

I have changed my home page to what it was before, (MSN.com) but it will not default to what I specify as my "home page" to open to.

I cannot get the above link to stop opening on default. Why?

Since none of my devices have a "manage account" selection under Sync (or Sync set up), there's no way to get or reset my recovery key. I only see "Set up Firefox sync" and "Pair a device". Everything else leads to a dead end without access to a recovery key or being able to manage the account.

I have been having trouble with some orders I have made online. The webmaster from one online store told me I should be regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. Is this accurate? I know when I do this with Safari, some banking websites want me to enter my passwords again because they say I am using a compute that has not visited this website before. As far as my problem with ordering items online and having problems with the store getting my order, I was told by the webmaster that any good computer practice includes regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. How do I do this on Firefox? I am new to using Firefox. Thanks!

I've tried various methods of sorting tags. None of them really represents the conventional output one would consider "sorting". I've had to, for example, prefix categories of tags in order to get some semblance of order. Lately not even this works very well after going through various updates to Firefox.

Further, there doesn't seem to be anything on the Mozilla website for Firefox that addresses this question. Perhaps my library of Bookmarks is more extensive than most, and those who program the interface have never seen a need to provide this capability to sort tags. In my case, since I've used tags to introduce order and fast access to information, tags have become indispensable to that end.

Maybe the reason this capability is missing is because it is not technically feasible. I would like to know whether or not it is so I don't continue to search for a solution.

My minimum size window is 4*2 inches; use to be 2*2; how do I get back to the smaller size?

Several months ago, my smallest window size was less than 2 * 2 inches. Then for no reason, the smallest size became about 2*2 inches. This was larger than I wanted but couldn't figure out why the change occurred or how to change it. So I learned to live with it.

Yesterday (12/19/13) when I logged into Firefox, the minimum size became 4*2 inches. This is too wide for me for many of the views that I want. I have not updated Firefox or Java recently. I don't know why this change occurred and would like to know how to redefine the minimum size window on Firefox.

The minimum size window for my IE browser and my Chrome browser is still 2*2. So the problem with the minimum 4*2 window is with Firefox only.

I'm working with a DELL Desktop DV051 with XP operating system 2002 Service Pack 3; 2.79 GHz; 1.99 GB Ram; Avast security

As stated, I can get all the way to being able to join a channel, but I don't any 'chatting' going on. I can see the user list, I can see the MOTD, I can do a listing, but no incoming traffic from the channel. I installed mIRC just to see, but same thing. I am thinking that there is some generic setting common to both clients that I am missing somehow, but I really don't know.

Is this a common error that I might be making? Is it a connectivity issue, or similar?

There is not a lot of info regarding this specific problem that I can find.

What do you guys think?
