The Firefox help on this subject titled "N900 Keyboard Shortcuts" indicate that the either Cntr + Left Arrow or Cntr + Backspace equates to hitting the "Back" button ... Neither work. Perhaps this advice is a remnant from an earlier version that no longer works ... This is an important shortcut for those of us with repetitive motion strain ... Or for using a touch pad ...

Thanks

In early Firefox versions there was a handy Add On named Bookmarks Synchonizer, the last version of which was updated by Torisugari. This allowed individual bookmark folders to be exported and imported.

Great for sharing information between colleagues, where you don't necessarily want them to have access to all your bookmarks folders.

Can this be done in Firefox 4? I can't see how to do it, and XMarks doesn't seem to offer this either.

I have read a lot of threads, but I have not found that any help. I just reformatted my hard drive and installed FF4 fresh. . I open firefox to my homepage. No tabs opened at this point. If I right click on on the page to open a new link by opening a new tab, it stays on the current page and opens a new tab in the background. My problem is if I am on a page and I open a new tab by selecting a BOOKMARK, it switches to the new tab immediately. I want to stay on the current tab and have the bookmark tab open in a background tab. Any help? Thanks.

P.S. I have tried checking and unchecking "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately", I have tried safe mode, I have tried disabling all of the add-on's....nothing seems to work.

I have installed some themes(skins), and I'd like to know where they are located on my HD because I'd like to make some modifications on them.

I have searched in the firefox profile directory with no success.

The 'extensions' folder contains extensions like 'download status bar', 'flashblock' and 'cache viewer', but not the themes.

Thanks a lot.

I see that there is a keyboard shortcut for switching tabs within a Firefox browser window, but I'd also like one for switching between browser windows. I imagine this is easier on Windows, where each browser window sort of behaves as a separate application, but on the Mac OS an application can own several windows. Thus, the OS doesn't provide support for switching between browser windows via a keyboard shortcut; it can just switch between applications, which brings all of the target application's windows to the front.

I've been trying to connect to a FTP server using WinSCP, but the server just won't allow it, despite me having the right login informations and all.

I tryed it on Firefox, and I could connect and see the files just fine. The problem is, Firefox doesn't do uploads and file edits.

My guess is that the problem comes from me selecting the wrong port to connect with on WinSCP.

To test my theory, I wanted to check which port Firefox was using to connect to the server. But I searched in every menu option (I think) but didn't find the info I wanted.

Any ideas on how to find it ?
