Somehow my default search engine has been changed from Google to something called "My Web Search". I want to switch it back to Google, but I can't figure out how. I disabled the plugin and removed it from my search engine options in the upper right corner, but nothing has changed.

I want to erase all certificate exceptions, that is, go back to the original default set of trusted SSL certificates. I've found the Certificate Manager and its big lists of trusted things, but I have no idea which of them ship with Firefox and which of them were added by me at some time in the past. How do I do this?

I have an email account with TalkTalk which has gone well for a few years. I get it through Firefox. Yesterday when I went into my mail the font was so tiny that I couldn't read it. I phoned Talktalk who said that it was a fault with Firefox and this was proved correct when I went to Internet Explorer and the font was normal. However I should like to keeop using Firefox. Colin

Hello to the to the Firefox team ,

When one click a eMule or aMule (P2P) link , there is no

option to associate it with /usr/bin/ed2k (the P2P program) .

In former versions you had to go in "about:config" and enter a New then Boolean with as name :

    "network.protocol-handler.external.ed2k"  and value :
    "true" 

Then again New String "network.protocol-handler.app.ed2k"

with "/path/to/ed2k" as a value .

I have Firefox 3.6.7 on a Fedora 13 O.S. and the classic

doesn't do the trick . How comes ?

Now I get a warning window witch basically says : (translated & abbreviated from Dutch)

" don't now how to open this address , this protocol (ed2k) isn't associated with any program "

Only option is the OK button , end of history , no way to

associate , as explained in MIME types etc.. ...

I've no idea , and there seams to be nobody else having

the problem , there isn't anything in the FAQ's or the

knowledge base .

Thank you for the attention ,

Sincerely greeted

Martin

The current options for opening a new tab in firefox is to either open at the right hand end of the tab strip, or to open it at the right end of the related content tabs. If the number of tabs between the current tab and the new tab exceeds the number visible across the window, there is no visible indication that the click was successful and a new tab was opened. Is there a way to get Firefox to open a new tab to the right of the current tab but to the left of the related content tabs. This means that you would always see the new tab being opened. It would also mean that if you accidentally opened the tab in the foreground rather than the background, the related content tabs would still stay in order (albeit from right to left rather than the current left to right).

I am unfamiliar with Linux. I want to upgrade my little daughter's eee PC, because Firefox is very outdated. I spent a whole day downloading all sorts of stuff (gtk+2.10, Asus1-files.deb, etc.) and have been typing all the advised commands exactly. Whatever the source (Softpedia, Mozilla, Ubuntu, wiki.eeeuser, 3eportal), nothing gets it done. Is there anyone on this planet that can help a desperate father out? Is there a logical way to upgrade without typing hours of code?

I was given an old Mac desktop G4 (system reinstalled) with Internet Explorer 5.2 which is too old to display the download pages for Flash, Explorer, and FireFox... all I see are blank pages, some artwork, only a few working links, no way to download. Looking at the same pages on my PC tells me that the page displays on the Mac are all screwed up. Since I want FireFox as my browser I thought I might as well skip the upgrade of IE, which I can't do anyway without an IE CD, and just order FireFox on CD-ROM for Mac OS X v10.2.3 (from my PC). I don't see anywhere that offers a CD version (which I am willing to pay for). All I need is a way to order a version of FireFox on CD-ROM that will work on Mac OS X v10.2.3
