When I try to open a new tab I get this: Server not found




         Firefox can't find the server at www.[r;;iåvÞyevq¾qîx»òki.com.
       
       
 Check the address for typing errors such as
   ww.example.com instead of
   www.example.com
 If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
   connection.
 If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
   that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

In dabbling long ago, I ended up with four different French language packs, and in all my English language browsing (my native tongue), the French packs take precedence over English, AND they are 4:1. I'd like to reduce it to one, contemporary French language pack which must be manually evoked, leaving English as the default.

I have lots of selections to "Install" but none to "remove". If the Language Pack Add-On page had near the top, a link to removal instructions, I would not be asking for support.

Much Thanks.

I reset my profile because of a problem displaying a particular web page.

I am now using the reset profile. Using this profile Firefox does NOT correctly display symbols and diacritic marks in my html pages. Such pages were correctly displayed in my old profile. They are pages containing text in French and Spanish.

Examples: é «

Why aren't the symbols and marks displaying correctly in a brand new profile when they displayed correctly in my old profile.

My problem lies with the about:home page.

when I click home, it goes to the firefox start page. I can't search anything there.

When I type something in, and press "Search" (the blue button), it doesn't do anything. If I use the address bar or the search beside it, it works, but it won't work on the about:home.

Any suggestions? I've added the troubleshooting information as well using the plugin

I'm trying to open the Profile Manager in order to create a 'developers' profile. I was originally following this blog's instructions using the Run command.

http://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2009/01/28/how-to-develop-a-firefox-extension/

The problem is that it's just opening up a new Firefox window, and nothing else. I then went to get more updated documentation, here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles?esab=a&as=aaq

And alas the same results. Here are the commands I have tried:


firefox -p firefox -P firefox -profilemanager firefox -ProfileManager

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -profilemanager "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -ProfileManager


They all return the same result, which is just opening a new Firefox window.

Don't know if it was v19 or v20, but I realized recently that the download window no longer shows the pause button while a file is downloading. There used to be a pause button as well as a restart/retry button. Now there is only a stop (X) button.

I used the pause button fairly often, so I just wondered why it wasn't there or whether there was a way to get it back.

Hi,

whenever i start a fresh Firefox Process and open Websites (example: g2play.net), Firefox will freeze for around 3 Minutes before the Website loads. This happens on a bunch of different Websites. Different browsers work fine (tried IE10).

What i have tried to fix this issue: - Disable all Addons - Disable Javascript - Start in Safe Mode - Clear all Files (Cache, Offline Data, everything) - Completely remove and install Firefox new - Create a new Windows user - Update all Drivers - Closing all the background programs i could close

Nothing fixed my Problem so far.

Computer Specs: Windows 7 64 bit SP1 updated to the newest versions AMD Phenom II x6 1100T - 6 core proccesor running at 3,30 GHZ noname 8 GB DDR 3 RAM ATI Radeon HD 5750 noname 2 TB Harddrive

Programs running in the background: Steam, Thunderbird, Avast, Winamp, Piclair, Brother ControlCenter3, Brother Status Monitor, Razer Lachesis 5600, AMD Vision Engine Control Center

I think (im not 100% sure on this) that the problem first appeared with Firefox 20.0.1. Also it only happens when loading that website for the first time, once its cached it doesn't hang anymore (i have my firefox set to clear the cache everytime the browser exits).

edit: it's not my connection, neither my DNS Server. I got a 100mbit connection running and i have tried to access the website directly over the IP but the problem still remains.

"Open a new, blank Private Window

   At the top of the Firefox window, click the Firefox button and select New Private Window. A new Private Window will open.

"

That is what it says! But where is this Firefox button at the top of my Firefox (v 20.0.1) window? What I have at the top of the window is:

(1) A blue-background bar with the Firefox icon and the title of the current page

(2) 2 grey-background bars with menus (e.g. File, Edit, ...) and buttons

(3) 1 grey-background bar with the Bookmark Toolbar

(4) The Tab bar

                                 But no Firefox button, and none available in the customise dialog. Have I suppressed it somehow?

When signing in on eBay, I always select the "Keep me signed in" option. However, I have to sign in again each time I access that website several times throughout the day.

I never had any problems with Gmail before this version. Now when I want to compose a new message the compose window and home page will turn into an empty white browser window. It is titled as if it were the inbox, but there are no links or words appearing in the window. I cannot type in this window either. So I am unable to send email from my desktop.

Also, I can only read new messages. When I try to read older messages I'd saved for information purposes, I can no longer open those.

I cant move to a new profile, it's just too much work to set. I just want to know what is wrong this this one.

Video didn't work in safe mode so i can say none of addons is conflicting. I think some about:config pref is hurting this but what. You guys are far more experienced. Please provide me with some insights to solve this very frustrating problem.

Thanks in advance. Regards.
