Downloaded the update to FF 33.1.1 only to find the TAB bar is now at the top rather than the bottom under my bookmarks.

Tried the solution I have used in the past... about:config / tabs / browser.tabs.onTop but the 'browser.tabs.onTop' isn't listed for me to be able to change to 'false'

In the past when I have done that the tabs revert to my favoured position but not with the new release of FF 33.1.1.

Can anyone suggest a solution ?

(I do wish that when updating Firefox would not interfere with the users previous settings or if thats too difficult for them, make it easy so you could just 'drag' all the toolbars, tabs bars etc etc into the position you want them)

My Firefox Options page does not show the np-mswmp.dll as installed. I downloaded the WIndows Media Player plugin from dlldump.com to my downloads folder (XP OS) per your webpage instructions here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Windows_Media_Player#Installing_the_new_plugin

I changed the about: config flag to True for plugsin.load[etc]. Firefox did not detect the new plugin. I tried to move it to c:\Program Files\Firefox\browser and Windows would not let me. (I could not find a \plugins folder there.) Then I tried to install it by using the gear icon and "Install Add-on from file". Firefox would not let me, said it was corrupt. What gives?

I just reset Firefox because it told me that it was running slow and could be fixed that way. It works perfectly but there is this annoying bar on the bottom of my screen and I don't know what it is. It doesn't have any icons and is only about a cm high. It matches my theme as well, but doesn't go away when I change my theme. I can't figure out how to get rid of it or find someone else with the same problem. Please help! And thank you.

I am working with a customer that has Windows 7 Premium with Flash 16 installed in Firefox 34. However she is having trouble with sites not playing Flash material. I have found that under the Application Tab in Firefox options no .SWF is showing. I have the same setup on my Windows 7 computer and the swf does show.

Any Idea why the application is not recognized?

If you read long texts with a web browser, it is easier for the eye to have something that guides them.

One simple solution is to read at the bottom of the screen and scroll down one line after the other.

Up to now I could not find a way to scroll exactly one line with firefox. Cursor-Down moves more than one line in my setup.

A plugin which provides a ruler or something like this would work, too.

Dashlane operates correctly when working with firefox standard browsing window BUT When Kaspersky Safe Money automatically kicks in and opens a protected window I lose all sight and use of Dashlane

I need a way to apply Dahlane extension to Firefox that is active in the protected window mode which is activated automatically by Kaspersky when I try to enter preset sites-namely financial types like banking etc.

Both of these programmes are important to me and I would really like them to work together.

Any advice would be appreciated

Change what Firefox does when you click on a file depending on current website

I need to process PDF files with different apps frequently. I need to open PDF's off one part of a site in one program and download the PDF's off another part of the site to a specific directory. I need to do this several hundred times a day and so any kind of manual switching is impractical, every click counts, and so I dont want any extras. My current solution is to use Chrome for downloading and Firefox for opening the pdf in a program. I don't like chrome nor do I trust google, I would prefer to only use Firefox. I also already use the inlineDisposition 2 add-on so firefox can correctly identify the files as pdf's. Is there a plugin that can help me accomplish this?

I want w3schools website on 'One-click search engine' to search within address bar by using keywords. Unfortunately, add option doesn't appear on search bar. I don't know if it's a bug or not. If not, then sure it has another way to put it in search suggestions.

Now I'm very use to 'One-click search engine' feature that lets user to search directly to that webpages by using keywords. So if there's any alternative way to add websites into search lists, just let me know. :)
