With recent versions of Firefox, I haven't found how to open all tabs from another synced computer. They use to be displayed in bookmarks or history lateral menu and I could use the right button to open all. If this option has been removed, I don't understand why going steps back.

BT webmail - problem with saved draft emails

Since the last update, I have found a problem with BT webmail. For my 3 different ....@btinternet.com email accounts, since the update, when I save an email to the drafts folder, then re-open it to edit and send, I can no longer re-save or send an email that comes from the drafts folder. Pressing the send or save buttons does nothing. New emails started and sent straight away (without going into the drafts folder) are not affected and still work perfectly, only those saved in drafts. This is a feature I use a lot - are you aware, and can it be fixed next update?

Ok so the question I was originally asking is why Firefox won't adjust to my computers Settings. For instance I have to Zoom to 150% to read my emails even though the minimum font size is set 20. So I went on the Help page and it kept giving direction do Refreshing the page, which I believe I've done before but the tutorial said they've changed the way it looks and where its at and unfortunately on my current, newest version, Firefox its nowhere. For starters, click on the 3 lines ie the Menu Bar on the right, good, then go down to Help, no Help listed in the Drop-Down Menu, No Troubleshooting, no More Tools? I am stuck? Ok under Share Data it says "safe-mode false" ?

Hello.

Current Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection-Standard Without the Free Adblock installed.

Goal: Minimize tracking and pop-up ads from appearing during my browser session:

Please answer each question separately:

Q1. Is the Standard option sufficient or should it be set to strict?

Answer:

Q2a. Does the Standard option OR the Strict option provide the features of an ad-block or does the free Adblock needs to be installed as well in order to receive full protection?

b. When I was about to install the Free Adblock, a warning came up asking me if it was the best adblocker and confirming that the extension would have permission to access my data from all websites, extend developer tools to access my data in open tabs, display notifications to me, access my browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation/

Do I really want to install Adblock knowing all of the above details?

Javascript causing FF to hang

About 2 weeks ago my FF upgraded to 3.6.8. At the same time FF started hanging after only a few hours. To be more precise, at 15 minutes scrolling would become choppy. by a couple hours everything was slow and choppy. and by 6-9 hours FF would be near locked up. my memory usage increases a little, but nothing drastic. and never goes higher than about 350k, well below the 8gb of ram on my system.

At the bottom of this post is a list of everything i tried. but my final test was to turn everything on. all add-ons, extension, 23+ tabs, 3 windows, ect. But i turned off one thing in FF options, javascript. 12 hours later, everything was still silky smooth.

But how do i fix a javascript problem? I've tried uninstalling the browser / reinstalling. clearing cache / history. tried older version. tried 4.0 beta. tried a new profile. tried deleting all profiles. tried as few as 5 tabs with very little javascript on them. i even tried a hard refresh (cntrl+F5) of all open tabs, none worked.

there's only 2 times i can clear the problem. 1) turn off javascript. 2) use only sites with no javascript. i tried one test with 23 open tabs, all to a msg board made out of php, and no hanging.

i have a quad core 2.83ghz, 8gb ram, windows 7 ultimate 64 system.

complete list of what i've tried: tried running fewer tabs tried disabling addons tried disabling extensions tried running in safe mode tried clearing cache and history tried creating new profile tried running in vista sp2 compatability mode tried turning off proxy tried FF 4 tried FF 3.6.3 (pre plugin container) tried FF 3.5.11 tried java update 19 (current is 21) tried complete uninstall (not just through uninstaller, but extended directions) tried disabling the plugin container tried scanning for malware / viruses, none found tried a chkdsk on the hard drive made sure all extensions were up to date (flash / java / quicktime / ect)

I'm now out of ideas on how to fix this asside from a complete reinstall of windows. which i'd rather not do since i dont even know if that will solve the problem. i see alot of win7 64bit users on here with hanging problems.

likewise, please avoid comments like "use chrome". i'm using chrome. i'm using it to post this support question. i'll tell you, i dont like it. it gets the job done, but is severely lacking in several major features. among them a competative add-on catalog, and the ability to temp download files for viewing. every single thing being downloaded to my hard drive for good is annoying. constantly clearing out the download directory is annoying.
