I have tried several different ways to change my default homepage to Google.ca:

- I tried changing it in TOOLS - OPTIONS - GENERAL - STARTUP - HOMEPAGE - "use current page" (while on google.ca)

- I tried changing it in TOOLS - OPTIONS - GENERAL - STARTUP - HOMEPAGE - "use bookmark" (selected my google.ca bookmark)

I am using Firefox 3.6 because installing Firefox 4 caused my Back button to malfunction (pressing back once would often make Firefox go back twice... I posted about that problem already but Firefox support forum was unable to help)

I know how to assign a default homepage under normal circumstance but that isn't working, can anyone suggest what else I can try?

Thanks very much.

Please help. Each time I try and use FF, it periodically stops working about once every minute for about 10 to 15 seconds. Sometimes it will display a white screen and at the top of the blue bar it will say (Not Responding) after Firefox. It begins working again after the 10 seconds or so. I have increased my virtual memory, but this did not fix it.

Also, each time I load FF, the session restore screen appears, despite having a normal shutdown previously.

I have not seen this problem explained earlier, and hope that someone can help. Thanks

Latest versions of firefox are not playing nice with the old version of RedHat/Fedora that I am running on one of my systems. The firefox version I had on there is now corrupted and needs a reinstall. Upgrading the operating system is not an option. Where do I find old versions of firefox for download? I can only find versions 3.6.15 or later on the mozilla site, search as I might.

I have a webpage that will change with time but I cannot print it out for awhile. How do I preserve a copy in its present state (cache?) to print out when I get to a printer.

I think bookmarking will result in the contemporary version of the page when I get back to it. It probably will not exist.

Thanks for any advice!

For every other application, (including this text field on Firefox), the shortcut "Command left/right arrow" brings the cursor to the beginning or end of the line you are typing. It's a great shortcut I use a lot.

HOWEVER, when you're typing out an Email in a txt field (say on Yahoo Mail for example), this command works as a "back" or "forward" button in the browser (previous page or next).

For this reason, I've lost pages of text I've typed into an Email just by habitually using this command. Once the page goes back or forward, I lose everything.

Is there ANY way of disabling this shortcut.

Thanks for your time, Brian

After I search using Google in Firefox, and hit the back arrow button to return to the main homepage I use, the browser won’t take me there. Instead, I’m left at the initial results page from my search.

Assume I start at Google as my homepage. I search for Federal Reserve. Google then brings up a number of selections for Federal Reserve. I can scroll through to more search results on page 2, 3, 4, etc. Now suppose I want to use the back arrow button to go back to Google as my homepage. I’ve found what I was looking for. When I try to get back to Google, the furthest back I can go is to page 1 of the search results. The browser won’t take me back to the original starting page which was Google. Also, it doesn’t matter what the starting page or initial page was. The browser will only take me back to the initial page after the original homepage. By the way, I did not install any new software or applications prior to this problem occurring. My guess is that it may have something to do with the function keys at the top of the keyboard. But I can’t figure out what the problem is with the function keys. It’s only a guess.

USING computer: MacBook.com, Office System: 10.6.7. Firefox version: 3.6.16

PROBLEM: Loading: http://www.yahoo.com/ the site comes up but icons, images etc don't load, whilst the load on my safari 5.0.4 browser.

HOW I TRIED TO FIX IT: In Firefox under: Preferences -› content - I have unticked: block pop-up windows; I ticked: Load images automatically and ticked: Enable Java Script.

Under: Preferences -› security - I ticked: Warn me when sites try to install add-ons and: Block reported attack sites and: Block reported web forgeries. Plus I ticked there Exceptions: and put in: http://www.yahoo.com/

- I closed the window, quit Firefox, restarted, but it still does not work.

I don't know what else I could do?, any suggestions welcome. Thank you. Victoria
