I am changing from Safari to Firefox, and I am used to the shortcut of (apple)+(shift)+(right) to change tabs. I was looking for a way to change the default shortcut of (ctrl)+(tab) in firefox to the apple behavior. Is there an easy addon/change so I can customize this behavior? Or will I have to look into writing/changing the basic code within firefox? If so, can anybody provide tips on how to do so?


thanks,

Kevin.

Hi, I have been using Mozilla Firefox for years (currently Firefox 17.0.1) , but lately the convenient (sidebar) option to search the web or pages from New Zealand disappeared.

I can click on 'Search tools' - 'The web' - 'Pages from New Zealand' (and do the same again when I want to search the web), however this is definitely not user friendly.

Is there a way of getting back the one click option choosing between web search or local search?

Thanks!

When I open a second tab in Firefox, it does not go to my home page. Instead it goes to a page that displays what looks like a collection of pages (or links) that I have visited in the recent or distant past. I would much rather have it go to my home page which is much more useful to me. I have tried to change this in 'Options' but with no luck. Please fix this.

My FF decided on 12/1/2012 to open in browser, overriding my settings. No matter what I do, how I change settings, PDFs open in FF. I even totally uninstalled Acrobat 11 and reinstalled Acrobat 10. Still opens in browser (so does that mean it's FF causing the problem?)

My settings in FF were to open in Reader, overridden. Changed to save file. Overriden. No matter what I do, PDFs open in FF. My settings in FF for years have been to open in Adobe, but now I cannot find the setting!

So now, haha, PDF opens in FF and FLASH is mucked up. So I've increased the problems and spent an hour and a half. Can you help? What am I (or they) doing wrong?

I installed this addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tree-style-tab/ and it changed my tab settings. I preferred Firefox the way it was where if I right click on a link and click open it new tab, it opens it *right beside* the current tab. Now they all open at the end of the tabs, and when I close the tab its doesn't go back to the tab I was on. I removed the addon and it's still broken.

How do I reset it back to the default?

I've just activated Facebook Messenger for Firefox after updating to Firefox 17 for Ubuntu. To my surprise I now find the messenger sidebar (ticker and chat) on the left side of my Firefox window. On all articles about Messenger for Firefox I've seen on the Internet the sidebar is on the right side, and that's the way I want it.

Is there a way to move the sidebar to the right?

If I go to the Add-on website and I try to install one, like the indispensable Adblock Plus, it will start, and the progress bar will reach the end but it won't finish the process. It just stays there indefinitely and retrying the download will have no success. I am in my seventies and as you can imagine I'm not terribly quick, terminology-wise etc. ;-) Thanks for your understanding and help。 Onkobo

SeaMonkey Mail: When I type a paragraph of text into an e-mail message, send it to myself, and read it, I find that SeaMonkey occasionally merges words together leaving out the space. The original text has spaces but the received text doesn't. I am using 2.14.1 and have been having this problem only for the last month or so. At approximately the same time, I noticed that SeaMonkey began underlying parts of words in red. This happens when I backspace to correct a misspelled word. Are these problems related and how do I fix them? Must I reload SeaMonkey? The same occurs when I run in safe mode without addons.

Here's the problem with latest Firefoxes (15-17) as well as Palemoon:

Create three folders on your desktop - name them A, B and C. Now open up Firefox. Go to webpages that have multiple images to download. Click open the images from the various webpages while holding down the Ctrl key.. You will now have multiple tabs of the various images. Now open each tab with an image, right click the image, save as a random name and make the download designation folder A. Do this for all tab images.

Now go back to the first tab image, right click the image, save as a random name and make the download designation folder B. Continue doing this for remaining tab images. As soon as you attempt to download an image from a different webpage, Firefox will change the download designation to folder A.

Typically when you set a download designation in a browser, the designation does not change unless you manually change it. Firefox will keep changing the download folder for each new webpage with images.

Now do the same as the last paragraph but save the images to folder C. As soon as you get to an image from different webpage, Firefox will (I do not see why it is doing it) change the download folder to either A or B, but not C.

For as long as I can remember the mousebutton 3 on my Logitech MX518 has had the following function: 1) When pressing on a non-link item, nothing happens 2) When pressing on a link; that link opens in a new tab.

Sometime in the last 6 months new behaviour was introduced as follows: 1) When pressing on a non-link item, the "back" command is executed. 2) When pressing on a link; that link opens in a new tab.

The annoying part here is that if I miss-click a link, the current tab loads the last visited page which is sort of the opposite effect I want. I want to open a link in a new tab and still stay on the current page I'm reading.

So my questions: 1) Is this a feature of Firefox (or perhaps website specific behaviour?) and if so, when was it introduced? 2) Can I disable this feature, e.g. in about:config?
