Hi There

Hotmail have this week updated their website, since then on Firefox I can't seem to open, delete, compose or do anything with my emails. All I can do is get into the inbox and that's it.

For the past month, maybe longer, Firefox has been extremely slow. The videos are also delayed. I have used firefox for many years and now I am disappointed with this browser. I cleared the cache and cookies, twice within a week. No improvement. I've been using Safari for my videos, but all my bookmarks are on firefox. How can we fix this problem? Whats going on ??

When scaling in page setup, 1st page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly/too large for the paper, parts of the text missing

When trying to print in Firefox, and when scaling the page size in page setup, the first page prints correctly, but subsequent pages do not scale correctly and are too large for the paper, with parts of the text are being cut off at the top and right. This is not fixed by checking or un-checking the "ignore scaling/shrink to fit page width" in the print window, or by changing the scaling%.

I am running Firefox 15.0.1, on Mac OS 10.5.8.

The same problem happens in the print preview and if I save the print as a .pdf

I have tried all the fixes in the how to's and others in various forums with no improvement.

This happens every time I try to print a document scaled up or down only in Firefox.

I'm using FF5 for Mac and recently installed Java for Mac OSX 10.5 update 10. Since then java no longer works in FF and I cannot find any java plugin in my add-ons (don't know if a plugin was there before the java update, but java worked ok). I tried reinstalling the java update, uninstalling and reinstalling FF5....no luck. My mac won't let my install an older version of java. I don't know if it's directly related to the update or if something is corrupted in FF. Java is working fine in Safari. I installed Google Chrome-java doesn't work. That makes me think it's related to the java update, but I never had Chrome before so I can't be sure. I thought if it was directly related to the java update many people would be affected and the internet would be filled with similar questions, but I haven't heard any yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Firefox is extremely slow for the past couple of weeks. I can't even open my banking site. I can't scroll or type without painful delays. I keep seeing the color wheel spinning and then after several seconds, it seems whatever is happening is finished and things return to normal for a few more seconds and then I get the same thing. Everything is fine on Safari.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I think it started when I updated to 3.6.3

Is there some kind of hidden requirement I don't know about?

I keep getting demands to update my version of firefox every time I wake up my computer, but I use a Power PC and the newest version isn't compatible. Please, either create a version that will work with OS 10.5.8 or fix the updater so it does a comparison between the OS of the host and the system requirements of the update. I know you should be able do it because you have the full details of my PC listed below. Otherwise, I'll probably give up firefox because of the nuisance value! Sorry

I keep getting popups to update to Firefox 9.0 because its faster etc. I look at the tour and it tells me it will prompt me if I already have one open. I WANT THE SAME SITE OPEN IN SEVERAL TABS depending on what I'm working on. Is that still possible with the updated version. IF NOT, I don't want it, but none of the FAQ questions even address my question.

Use Firefox all the time, but on the page where it tells you what plug-ins are oudated there is a message saying that I don't meet requirements to run FF.

I have an iMac. Mac OSX .... Version 10.5.8 I have had Firefox installed for a long time, and use it more often than Safari lately. However, when I am on the FF page where it tells you which plug-ins are okay and which are outdated (with a warning), at the top of the page there is a message saying that my computer "Does not meet the requirements to run Firefox". And yet I have it and use it! Maybe the message actually means that I can't update to the latest version? But also I don't know if I should go ahead and try to download the updated plug-ins. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I recently updated to the Firefox version suggested by Comcast. I had previously been running Firefox 6.-.- The "update" took me back to Firefox 4.0.1. (I did this because a Comcast tech was blaming a Comcast problem on Firefox. Finally I found a tech who identified the TRUE cause of that problem which had absolutely nothing to do with Firefox.)

After the "update" to version 4, old tabs that I had deleted a couple of years ago began reappearing on startup. I have deleted the bookmarks for these tabs, and cleared History and Downloads, Cookies, and Cache. But the outdated tabs continue to reappear when Firefox opens.

For example, if I want to sign into gmail, it asks for the username. As soon as I type in the first letter, it gives me a selection which it stored. Once I made a mistake and typed my password in there which also begins with the same letter. How do I clear the list? Actually, how can I set Firefox so that it doesn't automatically store that information.

I did do some due diligence, and asked the knowledgebase, but I admit I didn't poke around too long. Two or three upgrades ago, I was able to save bookmarks and a little menu (I want to say drop-down, but not) appeared, asking for tags, the precise placement of the new bookmark, and for me to edit the name. I'm sure that wasn't dropped, so why isn't the little menu showing up?

Also, the answer I did find said to click on the star, which autofills blue; clicking it a second time brings up the menu. Only, it doesn't.
