It appears that this question has been asked many, many, many times and yet a clear, concise answer hasn't been provided. How do I change my updates from the beat release channel to standard updates? There should be a simple procedure to do this without a lot of unnecessary information in the answer and ultimately no answer to the question.

Why is there now no option to close present tab only when clicking on X. The old (default) warning was excellent. With no warning, clicking the X kills Firefox - and all open tabs. This has lost me hours of work already. i certainly don't want to go down the route of restoring all tabs first. I can't rely on it, for instance, holding all comments made on a form. And for that matter, I wouldn't want that to reinstate a login.

Please can we return to the warning with 2 options Close all tabs and Close current tab only.

Until recently, I resisted allowing updates for Firefox because of the announcements of changes to prevent access to some technical kinds of website which I use. These include the public websites of the Paris Observatory which include useul informational ftp pages with important text, data and software files.

  I did recently allow a Firefox update, and now I find that I am cut off from access to these ftp pages. 
  How can I re-enable access to ftp? If it can't be done in the new version of Firefox, how can I return to an older Firefox version that does allow such access?

Firefox stopped working on me recently, so I had to close it through Task Manager and then reload all my tabs.

However, istead of Firefox doing this it 'refreshed', now all my tabs are gone, and worse still all my saved passwords.

I rely on Firefox remembering these passwords as I can't, how do I get them back? My life is toast without them.

Please help, I need to talk to someone on how to get them back.

  • When I try to print a webpage using Firefox, the page enlarges 4x and therefore I only get 1/4 of the webpage on an 8.5 x 11 sheet. If I change my browser to Chrome or IE, it prints correctly. If I scroll to the bottom of the Firefox Print Dialog window and select "Print using system dialog" it also works correctly.
  • I have the zoom set to 100 and the Print Dialog paper size set to Letter, It is set to print to page width, I tried it with Scale 100 but it didn't help. I also went to about: config and checked that the paper size and scaling were set to 1.
  • The the picture of the Print Preview looks exactly like should be when printed, but when it is sent to the Lexmark S505 printer the size is too large.
Since I print 50-100 individual webpages a week, I cannot use Firefox if this can't be corrected.

Thanks, Randall Win7 Pro

Create DEFAULT firefox profile via command line before the first run

Hi,

I want to setup a number of addons via command line on a completely fresh Firefox ESR installation on Linux (i.e. while Firefox hasn't been opened yet for the first time by the user). To do this, I first need a default profile directory, but the .mozilla folder is missing from the home path when I install Firefox (it is only created when I run the browser for the first time).

So I tried to create a profile immediately after installing FF:

firefox -createprofile default-esr

This creates the .mozilla folder containing a XXXXXXXX.default-esr directory and the profiles.ini file with the following contents:

[Profile0] Name=default-esr IsRelative=1 Path=XXXXXXXX.default-esr

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

However when I run FF for the first time later on, it completely skips this profile and instead generates a new default one, YYYYYYYY.default-esr-1, and profiles.ini is edited with the following contents:

[Profile1] Name=default-esr-1 IsRelative=1 Path=YYYYYYYY.default-esr-1

[Profile0] Name=default-esr IsRelative=1 Path=XXXXXXXX.default-esr Default=1

[General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

[Install3B6073811A6ABF12] Default=YYYYYYYY.default-esr-1 Locked=1

I can revert to the profile that I explicitly created by going to about:profiles and setting it again as the default, but this defeats the purpose because I want to prepare my profile via the command line without having to open FF to change a setting. Is this possible?
