Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/940362]

Several issues with the new update that I need fixed.

  1. The cursor is no longer in the navigation toolbar in a new tab.
  2. Once the cursor is in the navigation toolbar, hitting tab once no longer takes me to the search field to the right.
  3. Firefox refuses to stick as my default browser.

After creating a new home network, we have experienced two problems.

    My HP Photosmart c410a prints emails in a very small font.  When I try going to File>Page Setup>Change Font, there is no Change Font option. 
    My wife has an identical printer.  When she prints text now, it comes up with whole sentences or paragraphs missing and when she prints photos, they come in in muddy streaks.
   We tried HP support and after 90 minutes, they say they can't reach their Mac department.
   Help warmly welcome.

I always run Firefox in private browsing mode. Normally I don't accept cookies, but turn on the 'Accept cookies from sites' when necessary. Until recently when I've selected 'Accept cookies from sites', cookies have shown up in the 'cookies list'. Now they don't. As far as I can tell, I'm not doing anything differently. Resetting Firefox makes no difference.

using macbook pro with os 10.7.5, was recommended to update adobe flash while in firefox (22.0). did so, which required closing and restarting firefox during flash update. when complete, firefox opened automatically to adobe flash window and restore previous session was grayed out. can't figure out how to find and restore the tabs i had been using. related questions and answers don't find a solution. my settings are all normal and do not appear to have any relation to the problem. rather, it seems to be the closing and reopening of firefox associated with the updating of flash that nuked any memory of my previous session. is there a solution?

Before I shut down my computer, I quit all my open applications. This makes startup cleaner. But now, upon startup, Firefox 23 automatically opens...not Safari, not Mail, just new Firefox 23. This would seem to be the new default. Can I stop this behavior?
