I have two PC's I have Firefox on both and I have some time in the past set up sync as from the firefox (top left) icon it has listed 'sync now'

What I would like to know is what exactly gets synced !

When clicking 'Sync Now', is this an upload or a download from the PC ?

If a download then how do you do an upload of changes and if a download how do you do an upload of changes from either PC.

I am totally confused how it works please explain as my two PC's only seem to have been synced once after the first time I joined them with the code !

When I opened my computer, Firefox had crashed with the bug report window open. Without thinking however, I clicked on the Firefox icon in the toolbar which opened a new session in the homepage instead. When that happened, it didn't give me the option to restore my previous session (the option was grayed out) and hitting "Restart Firefox" in the crash window only opened another new tab at the home screen.

I had a decent number of tabs open that I would have like to keep open and I'm not able to remember all of them so is there a way to retrieve a lost session at this point?

I want to be able to paste my email signature into Gmail in Firefox, with a few links, e.g. a link to my Twitter account but displaying just my Twitter handle.

The source is text in a RTF file.

Copying and pasting this text into Safari works and preserves the links, but not Firefox. In Firefox, the signature is displayed, but without the links.

Any idea why?

Hi,

I'd like to block specific images, on specific sites, so I can load the sites without the images. I can use Kill Button to remove the images, but I would prefer not to load them.

P.S. I tried searching, but even Advanced Search took "turn" or "off" as synonyms of block.

Hello,

I just switched to Firefox and so far I've been the setting up process has been going smoothly. I've almost got the browser exactly how I want it to.

I am missing one last feature that I would really like to have; the ability to minimize and maximize Firefox with the use of my keyboard instead of having to rely on my mouse so I can switch between screens more fluently.

I don't know of there's an option available in Firefox itself or if there's already a combination of keys that do just that or if there's an Addon I can use. Any advice is therefor more than welcome.

I'm a web designer, trying to move away from Chrome because of privacy/security issues. I'm also 63 years old. My eyes are old. The text size on the tabs and bookmarks is very difficult to read. I don't want to increase the size of everything else - ***just the tab and bookmark text***. I've tried the fix seen elsewhere in the community for this question, but that doesn't change the size at all. If I increase the size, say by Zoom, that's a problem with my page layout. Can anyone help, please?

I'm on a Mac, but using an LG monitor, so no Retina display.

I recently ran into this problem after cleaning up my Windows 7 notification icons, which, required the deletion of 2 Registry Keys: IconStreams and PastIconsStream. This did a great job of clearing out the old icons, however, I ended up with this side effect!

I found this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/943001, which, gave me several remedies, including: create a new Boolean preference name: 'browser.shell.shortcutFavicons and set the value to false. None of the remedies worked.

  1. My solution was a simple one, I backed up my Firefox Profile, uninstalled Firefox, then, reinstalled Firefox, transferred my original profile back back and the problem was solved!

To make the re-installation easier, it's a good idea to download a new copy of the Firefox Installer, that, way you don't start another browser and searching for it, you can just simply run the installer. Also, don't forget to make a copy of your current Firefox Profile.

I hope, that, this helps and I hope, that, I haven't put this in the wrong place!

I want to import the EXACT way my firefox looks like from one computer to another, as I'm planning to purchase a new computer and I've seen what other people's firefoxes look like and that's not the one for me.

http://i.imgur.com/nnRjFFk.png

This is the way my firefox looks like, you'll notice it still has file, edit, view, history, etc etc and that's exactly what I want when I import my firefox along with my bookmarks of course. As well as my extensions like the hand grabber I have.

I was wondering if that is possible to do.

hi all

Ok. To my knowledge (and I've checked the mozilla keyboard shortcut listings), CTRL + SHIFT + V performs 'paste as plain text' (some people call this paste special). A really excellent option, if, for example, you're copying from MS word etc and don't want any extraneous crap coming with the text :)

This has definitely worked for me in previous versions of firefox.

However, using FF 33.1, CTRL + SHIFT + V does not currently work (it does nothing). Nothing is pasted.

CTRL + V works fine.

Interestingly, SHIFT + right mouse click paste works too (I suppose it's possible that the SHIFT keystroke is ignored though).

I've checked but there doesn't seem to be a paste special option in the edit menu, just as an alternative.

I am aware of a documented conflict (could just be historical) between the adblock plus sidebar keyboard shortcut and this 'paste as plain text' option in FF.

I've checked in about:config and the relevant preference "extensions.adblockplus.sidebar_key" is set to "Accel Shift U", so no apparent conflict there.

I have of course checked this operation in safe mode and have replicated the problem.

Setup:

firefox 33.1 windows 7 64bit home premium (with all patches, etc)

It would be reassuring if someone could at least replicate this issue (or tell me what I'm doing wrong :) ).


Regards,

Gary
