hello

fr: il faudrait personnaliser la taille de la barre de recherche. Elle est tellement grande que la barre d'adresse est toute petite et je ne peux même plus cliquer sur l'adresse pour la copier. En fait j'ai supprimée la barre de recherche et je tape dorénavant mes recherches directement dans la barre d'adresse


en: adress bar is too small to select the adress and copy it. How to change the siez?

getting rid of ask.com is not a task I can handle on my own. I've tried. don't have printer or other computers available. I was naively hoping that Mozilla or Firefox could do it for me. Following a long list of complex instructions again will not work for just me and my laptop on our own, so I'm afraid other users can't help!  :-(

I get a message that firefox is already open but not responding, I have to close and open firefox and it works one time only. If I cut and paste link from thunderbird it opens it.

I'm not sure but it may have started when I got a "tab mix plus" update ... I don't even remember having tab mix plus? Unless it came with firefox.

After fitting a new SSD following a hard drive failure, and reloading Windows 7, I decided to switch from Chrome to Firefox. Now all my regular websites show subtle differences, as if some of the detail has been missed out. One forum I visit no longer has the grid separating each topic, author answers etc. When I went to ask this question here, I had to search for the box to type in the question by moving the mouse around till it turned into a cursor. Some formatting is wrong compared to Chrome, and some links are difficult to find. I've tried all the suggestions I can find in Help and Support.

Forecastfox 2.3.3 The Addon Bar (restored) 3.2.1 I had to install these because firefox dropped the addon bar when I upgraded. They are the same versions as are on my other computer. Firefox and those addons play well together. The addon bar installed and shows up when I start firefox, I added forecast fox to the add on bar via the CUSTOMIZE button by dragging the forecastfox icon down to the tool bar. Then clicked EXIT CUSTOMIZATION. Forecastfox is in the toolbar and is operational. However, when I restart Firefox, the toolbar starts but the forecastfox does NOT. Help me please.

When in Firefox, if I attempt to print a page (either through typing Command-P or via the File menu), it crashes immediately (even before bringing up the popup to select printing options). It does this for all pages (ie. page content does not seem to matter). Also, if I go to the same URL in another browser such as Chrome, the page can be printed without incident.

Here is the most recent crash ID and report: bp-365ce20b-9536-4107-9937-5b3f52150611 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/365ce20b-9536-4107-9937-5b3f52150611

I have a wildcard SSL certificate used to secure a live and test site. With identical code the test site shows fine in Firefox (Windows Version 38.0.5) but the live site will not show and replaces the page with: "Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to app.cognisess.com. Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response. (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_invalid_signing_cert)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem."

The security details show the certificate as "Verified by: Not specified" in the live site, while test site shows verified by GlobalSign nv-sa

Presumably if it's the same certificate, we shouldn't get an error in one place but not an other. Working fine with no errors on latest Chrome/IE, etc. I've verified there is no mixed-content on the page both manually and via whynopadlock.com.

Live site is https://app.cognisess.com and test site just replace app with testing.

Any ideas? I'd appreciate any help fixing this issue at our end if it's not a bug in the browser.

I have a Canon MG6250 connected via USB. I run Windows 7 with all latest updates and currently the Firefox version is 38.0.5. For quite some time, probably about a year, starting after a new version of Firefox I think , I have trouble printing. (Sorry I can't remember with which version it started happening.) Unless I wait for the printer to ready itself completely, although the print dialogue box appears and I click Print, often (not always) nothing happens. If I try to print again I get a pop-up box saying the print function is not available. If I then close Firefox and try to restart it, it tells me that Firefox is already running; I have to end its process via Task Manager. Often I want to print from several tabs, already loaded with the pages to be printed. Even if I manage to get the first tab to print, somewhere along the line the same thing often happens: before I've printed the last tab's page I get the pop-up box again and I have to end the Firefox process to make it work again. I can usually prevent it from happening if I monitor my computer's CPU activity (via System Mechanic) and make sure all activity has stopped after printing one tab before I try to print the next; this makes printing from Firefox frustratingly slow!

I do not have any printing problems whatsoever from any other application.

Note that fairly recently, due to a system drive failure, I re-installed Windows and all my software. I hoped that a by-product of doing this might fix the Firefox printing problem, but it hasn't.

I'd be most grateful for a solution to this problem.
