How can I separate the "Icons and Text" of the browser control buttons (Back, Forward, etc.) from the Icons on the Add-on toolbar?

At home, this is not an issue. I don't know why it's different here at work--same installation, same settings (as far as I can tell). Windows Vista Firefox 7.0.1 Status-4-Evar installed to turn add-on bar into a status bar

I have a NoScript add-on icon in the corner, which works fine. If I add a GreaseMonkey icon from the Customize menu, the "Icon and Text" appears for that icon, like the Icon and Text from the browser controls (Home, stop, etc). Other add-on icons also show Icon and Text (S4E, for instance). NoScript is the only one I've found so far which collapses down to just an Icon.

This leads to the status (add-on) bar having a much larger height than I like. Essentially what I want is for only the Icon to appear in the Status bar (Add-on toolbar), while keeping Icons and Text in the Browser controls. My current workaround is simply removing the other add-on icons from the status (add-on) toolbar, but that takes away the ease of toggling and setting options.

Please tell me if I can provide you with anything else, and thanks for your help.

Edit: I've got some screenshots to show what I mean. desired behavior problem when icon is added

I read from many creditable sources that Firefox 13 or so will have its own built in speed dial much like Chrome or Opera so here are some questions and suggestions I have. 1 Will the built in speed dial for Firefox have the option to select how many columns/rows (AKA windows) and groups I want. 2 It should at least allow someone to have 14 windows and up to 10 groups. 3 Also will there be an option to import my Speed Dial extension by Josep del Rio settings since this is a very popular/common extension.

I changed browser.newtab.url to a website with links i often use. Now I've got the problem that I not always want to use one of those links. So when I start typing in the location bar the text is just added to the url of my chosen website. The problem would be solved, if the text in the address bar is selected every time when I open a new tab. (I could press every time crtl+a of course, but I'm used to just type)

Is there anything in the config I can change or an Addon?

Since I just updated to firefox 13, I can no longer customize where a new tab opens, thanks to the new 'new tab page' feature. I've had my new tabs open to my home page for years now, it's how I'm accustomed to it, and it's frustrating that I now have spent so much time trying to work around this new 'convenience'. Just to clarify: I would like my new tabs to open to my home page. not a blank page, and not frequently visited tabs page.

I just want to use copy/paste with my mouse. Why can't you make it just a toggle in Firefox? Why do I have to enter someone else's resume in my user.js file?? That makes even LESS sense.


For Firefox:

   Quit Firefox. If you have Quick Launch running (in Windows, an icon in the toolbar), quit that too.
   Find your Firefox profile directory.
   Open the user.js file from that directory in a text editor. If there's no user.js file, create one.
   Add these lines to user.js:
  [edit: removed personal information]

Note: The preference is site as well as protocol specific. For example:

user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites", "http://www.mozilla.org")

is not the same as:

user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites", "https://www.mozilla.org")

This is because the first uses HTTP while the second uses HTTPS.

If you want to allow multiple URLs to access the Paste operation, separate the URLs with a space. For example:

user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites",

"https://www.mozilla.org https://developer.mozilla.org")

For more information about security policies, see http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/components/ConfigPolicy.html.

This was an option in previous versions of Firefox. What sense does it make to remove functionality?

I don't want to have to middle click my home button, and it's absolutely ridiculous to have to install an extra addon to restore basic features that were included in versions that came out 5 years ago.

What's the deal?

When I open mail.yahoo.com in two different tabs, one to see a message I compose, another to see a message I read, I can not set different zooms to the two tabs, such that I either see one of them too large or the other too small. This was not the case before the last update, and I believe that it is a very costly simplification.

I am facing much problem with padlock in address bar. It does not open on many clicks. But sometimes it does.

I need this padlock very badly as I m a developer and I remove specific cookies and settings specific to the website. I do it by clicking on "More Information" button in padlock.

I had also faced this issue once I had upgraded to 6.0 in past. I tried a lot but I couldn't resolve this. It works fine after re-installation of Windows.

Followings are what I have tried: 1. Re-install Firefox. (Didn't help) 2. Uninstall using Total Uninstall and Installed Firefox again (not worked) 3. Installed 3.6 (Padlock is working fine in this version) 6. Again upgraded to 9.0 (Padlock is not working)

Please help me. Otherwise I have to use 3.6 that I don't want. 3.6 has so old look.

I often use the shortcut Alt FWF to create new directories on Windows.

When FF 15 is set as default it alters the File New menu from Windows Explorer.

It inserts a "Firefox HTML document" item.

This item seems to sabotage the above key combination. It intercepts the last F.

In addition I object to the naming which is plain wrong, for me.

I have deleted the registry key that inserts this thing. Unfortunately it re-appears.

I want to stop this behaviour.

How do I kill this. (Other than by making another browser the default.)

Please I need someone from Mozilla to contact me regarding this issue.

On the Tools, then Options tab, under Show Update History, Use A Background Service To Install Updates, so now I can't check this box to not allow the service to install updates.

I just updated from 15.0.1 and the above option was there, now that I have upgraded to 16.0.1 it is gone.

Mozilla updated correctly on my laptop and husband computer but not mine, so what do I do?

Did I get a corrupted version of Mozilla Firefox? Do I uninstall Mozilla Firefox and re-install it again?

Thank you.
