By comparison, Control-F did work in the IE browser. At least that's what happened to me on the other laptop, on some forums. Just now i tried it on gardenweb, and it functioned OK.

But for a fact, it sometimes glitches. The proof is, that I'd tried Control-F in Forum XYZ, in Firfox, and it failed to work. Then immediately opened IE, and tried Control-F in Forum XYZ, and it worked perfectly.

Each time i post something, prior to Preview, i try pasting the text within my textbox to clipboard, because i learned from past experience that failing to do so puts me at risk of losing everything i typed.

When I use Control-Home & Control-End in I.E. and then drag mouse to hilite the text within the box, it functions perfectly.

On the other hand, when doing so in Firefox, the mouse sloppily rolls BEYOND THE PARAMETERS of the textbox.

That's very unruly & stressful.

I should add, that within this box i'm typing into right now, Firefox scrolling is working OK, but it glitches in other textboxes, such as on forums.

Javascript error when starting Firefox 5

I've just upgraded Firefox from 4.0.1 to 5. Now when I start Firefox, the following error message appears:

JavaScript Application TypeError: Components.classes[cid] is undefined

When I click the OK button, Firefox loads. It looks normal, and seems to behave normally. I have Java Version 6 Update 26 installed (Windows XP), which is the latest version.

Seems to be a Firefox problem, as I didn't have it before with the same version of Java installed. Is there a Firefox setting that needs to be changed, or is it maybe a Firefox bug?

The instructions state:

Right-click on the tab you want to turn into an App Tab and select Pin as App Tab from the menu.

But when I right-click, the resulting menu does not have that option. Is it possible that one of my add-ons or plug-ins is disabling it?

I have a screenshot but I cannot see a way to add it from this form.

I change to firefox 5 this morning, it made me aware that google toolbar was not compatible but did not mention Trusteer Rapport. It was not working so I 'repaired' it, although it seems to be working it put up an error message about a mail package and asked me to connect to google or any website. The error then disappeared, and rapport said it was ok, but the green rapport icon that was visible to the right of the address bar in 3.6. is missing, where is it now incorporated?

After installing Firefox 5, the bookmarks pull-down window has changed. First, the area to the right of the file name is extremely wide. Second, when clicking on a filename including bookmark links, the screen listing bookmarks covers the filenames, thus making it impossible to simply scroll back to the filename list.

Everything works on Facebook as before, but when I go to the "messages" option, the messages do not display (but works fine in Explorer).

I have not added any new plug-ins or add-ons.

Everything worked without a problem before I upgraded to Firefox 5. Other Firefox users I've contacted do not seem to have this problem, so I assume it may be a setting, although I've made no changes.

Hi,

When searching with the Google Search Bar in the upper right hand corner of the browser, and the Location Bar my search results appear up on the "www.google.co.il" website. I would like this to default to either Google.com, or Google.co.zm [Zambian site].

I have completely uninstall Firefox 4 and upgraded to Firefox 5 losing all of my bookmarks and customizations, with no luck. The 'Bing', 'Yahoo' and other engines work fine, so I presume its a setting that was changed and not a virus [also because it takes me to an official Google page]. Also, my homepage searches work as they should.

I believe the page it brings me to is Google in Israel, I am currently living in Zambia, Africa and on occasion the web service is bounced through Middle Eastern providers, so that may be a clue.

Understand that I am not extremely technical on a computer [I can hold my own BUT I'm sure I can really screw it up if I wanted] so if I need to adjust host files [or something] I will need and appreciate step by step instructions. I am on a HP laptop using Windows 7 [64bit].

Thanks in advance, I am really at a loss.
