I'm trying to change my new tab, and I've already reset Firefox as well as going to about:config, and using search reset. Can someone help?

This has happened a few times, and every so often the new tab would reset itself, and I went back to about:config to put it back. Now it won't change at all! I've already… (read more)

This has happened a few times, and every so often the new tab would reset itself, and I went back to about:config to put it back. Now it won't change at all! I've already reset Firefox, so please don't mention that. I also tried downloading search reset with no luck either. Please don't mention those two. I need another option!

When I try to play a YouTube video, It says an error has occured. I did look at help articles for help on this, but it required downloading something, and I don't have enough disk space. Is there something else I can do?

I have been having trouble with some orders I have made online. The webmaster from one online store told me I should be regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. Is this accurate? I know when I do this with Safari, some banking websites want me to enter my passwords again because they say I am using a compute that has not visited this website before. As far as my problem with ordering items online and having problems with the store getting my order, I was told by the webmaster that any good computer practice includes regularly deleting the temporary Internet/cache files. How do I do this on Firefox? I am new to using Firefox. Thanks!

I've tried various methods of sorting tags. None of them really represents the conventional output one would consider "sorting". I've had to, for example, prefix categories of tags in order to get some semblance of order. Lately not even this works very well after going through various updates to Firefox.

Further, there doesn't seem to be anything on the Mozilla website for Firefox that addresses this question. Perhaps my library of Bookmarks is more extensive than most, and those who program the interface have never seen a need to provide this capability to sort tags. In my case, since I've used tags to introduce order and fast access to information, tags have become indispensable to that end.

Maybe the reason this capability is missing is because it is not technically feasible. I would like to know whether or not it is so I don't continue to search for a solution.

When I on Facebook, I have to scroll to the right using the 'toolbar' at the bottom to get to 'home'. Even when I am on my News Feed page I have to scroll to the right to see HOME I have changed the font to 9 in TOOLS, OPTIONS, CONTENT, ADVANCED but this has not resolved the problem I guess I want to know how to adjust the page set-up so that MOST of the Facebook page is visible, particularly the HOME button?

Before, when I would reopen my browsing session, and I was halfway down one of the pages, it would start back at the spot where I left off. Now, though, it just opens up at the top of the page and I have to scroll down to find where I had ended before. Can I get it back to the way it was? How?

Hi, the keyboard shortcut cmd+shift+m works for most of my other applications, and it's listed in the Window menu item, but it's not working in Firefox. I should note that cmd+m does work to minimize the window. Also, clicking on the Zoom menu item works as intended, just not the keyboard shortcut.

Could use some advice. Thanks. :)
