I reinstalled my linux box recently, and now that I'm trying to print a web page in Firefox, I have no printers listed in the printer dialogue. I use the CUPS system, and both printers Canon and PDF-writers are shown under other Linux apps, but not under Firefox.

Nonetheless, printers are present in the about:config dialogue, I can find keys such as print.printer_CUPS-PDF.print_bgcolor but also others like print.tmp.printerfeatures.CANONPIP3000.paper.1.is_inch and print.tmp.printerfeatures.CUPS-PDF.can_change_num_copies

just to mention a few. The strange thing is some settings appear under a "tmp" section.

I've seeked the forums, but none of the problems there match mine, nor solutions solve my problem.

What can I do to add the printers to Firefox?

I assume this is not a Linux/KDE problem, as other applications correctly detect the printers.

Most of my bookmark folders have disappeared from the "choose" option for where to store a new bookmark while you're creating it, although the folders all still appear in the "Organize Bookmarks" Library. I didn't change any settings, and I'm not aware of anything I could have changed inadvertently. It may have happened when Firefox had one of its crashes, which it's been having fairly frequently lately, but I don't remember for sure. I don't know, but I think the crashes might have something to do with running low on memory. Restarting the computer didn't fix the problem.

I was on Facebook, trying to delete a picture from my favorite sport teams. I right clicked and chose "block all photos from static.ak.f....." When I did that, I couldnt see any thumbnail size pictures on FB. How do I unblock the site?

It seems that I have blocked pictures from http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php/v1/yL/r/wErnZ_tAQMR.png. This is a Facebook question, but I searched their site and cannot find it. When I tried to repeat the action that blocked pictures, a pop up came up and said Firefox will now block pictures from http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php/v1/yL/r/wErnZ_tAQMR.png. I want to know how to undo this, I cannot see any profile pictures of myself or anyone else on FB. Thanks for your help! natalietallon@hotmail.com

I keep getting prompts saying that a website is unsecure and not protected. I also get prompts telling me to update, but when I follow them I'm told my operating system is too old and that I should go to Mozilla's website to get the latest version which works with OSX 10.4.11, but I can't find said version, but I do find plenty of references to a particular version being on the brink of no longer being supported.

Firefox 3.0.19 on Kubuntu9.04 (jaunty) keeps crashing when I try and download files. I have tried deleting downloads.sqlite. I have also tried creating a new profile. Neither has helped.

If I right click on a link and choose "Save link as" I can download files. But If I left click on the link the downloader menu does not appear and Firefox completely shuts down.

I'm running Wamp Server on my machine. Cant upgrade my Firefox 3.0.19 because then it is no longer compatible with my Wamp Server.

Problem is, That Adobe Flash Player 10.1 is not compatible with Firefox 3.0.19.

Do I need an older version of Flash Player or is there an alternative Plugin I can use on Firefox 3.0.19?

DETAILS? OK OJ, here's the details. Firefox has crashed a b'zillion times (I'm an artist, Jim, not a mathematician!) so when they said download 4.0, I wasn't sure about it. But I did it. And, when I turned my attention to what it had given me, I found that it had absconded with ALL of my internet passwords that weren't supporting my specific name. Except that confounded BonemanHA which is what Google used to screw up my account at youtube. (thanx, again, googz! I know you're watching all of this) but, that's besides the point. Then it crashed again. Froze and crashed. I'm starting to think the firefox is nuzzling the arctic poles. I swear on a stack of bibles...and lightning comes down and kicks my ass. I calm down, the next day I pretend nothing has happened, go about re-establishing my passwords (is this too long? Will someone come out of he electronic closet in my computer to tell me if it is? I HATE writing a bunch of words only to look up and see it stoped at Dear so'n'so,) Anyway, now it asks me if I want to download 4.0.... I should mention now that I LOVE to bring laughter to folks. Times are too hard on paople as it is, and a small mission of mine is to bring a smile, however small to people that i can. My smiley face is a lil hat guy with a big smile: d=^)) and if he tells a joke (did you hear about the two guys that walked into a building/ Man...You'de have thought they would use a door or climb in a window or something.) dX^D

But when it regularly asked if I would download fire 4.0 I was more of d=^|

so. I downloaded it again, because like everyone else, I get tired of the nagging whiney attitude. Only, it didn't download the second time, either. It DID... but, it didn't. I know it was a partial because my pretty birds are gone. That was what I chose for the top bar. And...before you get too much of a laugh going about a guy having the pretty birds up top, consider this... I'm 6'5", 225 pounds, and although 60, can still cut and chop a cord of wood a day for burning in the Winter. But, it doesn't matter, does it? The birds have flown the coop. (maybe they're pigeons?) I still get asked to download 4.0 some of my passwords are still a mystery to me. (I use different passwords at different places...just a security dealio, eh?) So...dunno what else I can say. It still freezes occasionally (once a day) but that beats crashing two and three times a day. I get done with shipping out error reports, too, because sometimes it's my fault. Impatiently banging on the keypad doesn't normally get ANYTHING done, but, it worked once...so I do it again. Sometimes. Well, I see there's more questions below, so, I best be moving along. I'm almost sure that I'm leaving behind a mad techie who's sure I wrote too much or someone sitting there getting a good laugh. Hope for the laugh, but...could you explain this to a tech, please? I'm not so much a tech.... more of a user. (ps...mixt reviews on Tron 2 It was good to see a second try but I think it went askew with a mismanaged plot line) boneman d=^))
