I use [control]- and [control]+ on the number pad to zoom the text in and out.

For some reason, [control]+ on the number pad no longer works. It does, however, work using the number keys at the top of the keyboard.

I have tried starting Firefox with no extensions loaded ... no joy. I have tried creating a new profile under my user account ... no joy. I have system administrator privileges.

When I launch Firefox using the Full Administrator's account and password, all the keys work.

I'm using Firefox 22.0 on top of Windows XP Professional.

Since a week or so every time when I close my Firefox browser a command prompt pops up for a short moment. It's not really an annoyance, but it doesn't seem in order.

Judging from the title of the window it's something to do with saving my browser profile.

Thanks in advance.

After updating to release 21.0, I'm no longer able to join an online meeting using Microsoft Lync 2010 if Firefox is set as my default browser. I get prompted to "Join the meeting using your web browser" or "Download and install Lync Attendee". Neither option works. Joining using web browser results in a prompt to install missing plugins, but then no suitable plugins are found. Trying to install Lync Attendee fails because Lync 2010 is already installed.

I also tried installing Firefox beta release 22.0, but the issue remains.

Something is wrong with my web browser, and I'm upset because this is the best browser.

The problems are: - Firefox won't let me set my homepage. It will work fine in one Firefox session, but if I close the browser and then reopen it the homepage is reset to the Firefox Google Search page. - The new tab doesn't show the 9x9 grid.

I have followed the methods of by "Click on Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Info > Show Folder" and deleting prefs.js and then restarting the browser. This hasn't worked.

I have also used the method of getting the SearchReset add-on and this works for one Firefox session but then Firefox resets to the "buggy" version with the problems listed above.

I have also done "Firefox > Help > Troubleshoot Info > Reset", this hasn't worked.

I have also done a complete uninstall of Firefox and downloaded and installed the latest version. This didn't work. I also tried other versions of Firefox, namely the Beta, Aurora and Nightly and none worked.

These problems first occured after installing Freemake Video Converter which installed Delta-Search without me knowing. I've uninstalled Freemake and I've also managed to get rid of Delta-Search. But since getting rid of that problem, I am now left with this. Please help, I don't want to use Chrome or IE. They're horrible.

I have a problem with playing youtube video's on Firefox for a while now.

I am running this on the newest firefox on a Dell Latitude D430 1,33Ghz Core2Duo 64bit 2GB mem Windows7 x64 SP1. The problem is that there is a lot of breaking up in audio and video while even loading the video at 360P In the meanwhile, Internet Explorer runs the same Youtube video 720P without hick-ups in any kind.

Looking at the progress download bar, it holds for a while then loads again, at these moments, the inconsistencies are even worse.

I Have the same problem on my Phenom X4 940 PC with 8GB memory and a AMD HD6870 videocard with newest drivers running on a stripe raid SSD Corsair GT hard drive with Windows 7 x64 SP1.

It doesn't matter if I run firefox with or without the plugins and add-ons or without, (after restart fifo ofc) Or even reinstalling Firefox.

My Notebook is able to run 720P material without any problem. CPU usage is at an average of 70% which is more then enough reserve for background processes. My PC is able to run 2560x1600 without any problem. CPU usage is at an average of 60% which also has enough reserve. This ofc is when the video's are run from the harddrive or even USB.

In both cases, firefox is running terrible trying to play a youtube video. Internet explorer and Chrome is running fine.

Oh and my internet is a 60Mbit up and 6 Mbit down cable connection.

How to fix these problems? I already fixed the Google Maps bug due to Ghostery.

I can't use any add-ons, themes, etc. All of them cause my nav bar to turn red and say I haven't enough data for that site. I'm afraid a virus will creep in if I use any add-ons. What fun is a browser that you can personalize. I know I have beta, but even reg FF was doing this. I have win xp and can't update just yet. I'm not sure what else I can do. I had to begin FF all over again with new data, just to get rid of the add-ons and red nav bar. Are you going to fix this? It's not just one add-on it's all of them.

The last time Firefox actually saved an html page in the history was May 16th. Firefox will only save pages that I visit that are non-html pages, a page that ends in .pdf, jpg, .doc, etc.

I have tried several times messing around with options - picking don't remember history, then restarting and selecting remember history.

I uninstalled Firefox, but kept personal data. Then I reinstalled. Still didn't work.

I then used the reset FireFox. It only made things worse. Now I can't change the home page.

This is Firefox 22 beta on Win 8 Pro 64bit

I am terribly upset with Mozilla. I use Mozilla in conjunction with my AOL account. I agreed somehow to take Mozilla news and now there are all kinds of downloads being forced on me that I do not want. I cannot get past them and some are already messing with my computer. Browser and my AOL News page etc. I do not want these downloads and now I do not know how to get rid of the stuff. It is conflicting with AOL which I PAY FOR - GET IT !!!! I am so angry with Mozilla that I believe I will drop it.
