My Netscape has a "Window" option, which lets me save my mail on my computer. Does Firefox not offer this option?

The top tool bar lists "File," "Edit," "View," "History," "Bookmarks," "Tools,"and Help." Netscape lists "Window" between "Tools" and "Help." This "Window" drop-down le… (read more)

The top tool bar lists "File," "Edit," "View," "History," "Bookmarks," "Tools,"and Help." Netscape lists "Window" between "Tools" and "Help." This "Window" drop-down lets you go to "Navigator," "Mail & Newsgroup," "Instant Messenger," "Composer," and "Address Book." Is this feature not available on Foxfile?

How do I get rid of a redirect problem 'bywill.net' It came with the April update and is still around

when going onto bing or google after selecting the site I want to use, I'm diverted by 'bywill.net' to various site similar to what I want. I now click on my site then when bywill comes up click return. This goes on for 10 times until I get to the site I want. This add-on appears to come from an update I did with Firefox back in March or April. It's very annoying wasting time when trying to find some information. I've tried to 'delete add ons' but this doesn't work. It's very annoying. Forums don't help.

1. Out of nowhere, my FF stopped restoring my previous session on opening. I made sure all of the settings were set properly, which they were, yet it still didn't work. The next thing I know, FF isn't opening. Then it opens, but in a slit on the side of my desktop.

2. Now that it opens in a slit, my back button doesn't work.

3. It takes forever to open, if it opens at all.

I've so far checked my settings, uninstalled FF 6, installed FF 6.2 and rechecked my settings. Nothing's changed. I have Windows 7. Any advice is welcome. Thanks!

I can only navigate back/forward one page at a time. The drop down box that used to allow me to see the recent pages and select the page I wanted to go to was immediately to the right of the "forward" button. I can right click over the forward/back buttons and get the dropdown list of recent sites.

Local county website removed a form students use and placed it in another location of its website. I had the form bookmarked in its old location. Now I can't remove the bookmark for the form at its old location. Also, I'm not sure if the old/new location has anything to do with my inability to remove or delete that bookmark.

I am have problems with firefox 5& 6. It does not display correctly. I have tried the no squint and the internal zoom. Some pages load ok, others like yahoomail, load tiny unless I zoom and then other pages have problems. Why? What else can I be doing?

I am frustrated. With the no squint, which has a mind of its own, then some pages are fine, in others the type is too big or too small for the frames. If I use the default Firefox zoom that is no better. I have to set things for like 130 percent and am constantly having to click on the zoom and change things. I never had that with previous versions? Why can't Firefox just go back to displaying text in the correct frames at a decent size?

When I am typing in yahoo mail or in facebook, characters may not print to the screen for up to ten seconds - and then appear very slowly. Sometimes characters are omitted. For instance the last sentence might appear as "Sometimracters ar mitted."

I have not seen this problem in Chrome.

"updated" Firefox and when I click on the "Restore" button the screen is reduced to a little box with Firefox on it. To go back to full size I have to click on the arrow next to Firefox, which opens a window, or box, then click on "Full Screen." What happened to the "normal screen," about a half sized screen ????

For example, clicking on a link to a website in an email returns an Outlook error. This started immediately after updating Firefox to version 6.0.2. For the moment I can't repeat the error without making Firefox my default browser again. Until I find out what to do I intend to keep Internet Explorer as my default browser.

I have NOT tried Firefox with add-ons disabled.

Whenever I update Firefox, the "Apply Update" button still appears under Help->About Firefox. This has happened when updating to 6.0, 6.01 and 6.02 and on 3 computers (two Windows 7 64-bit and one Windows XP). Each time, I've applied this fix described in https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/850542#answer-216220, i.e. deleting the updates\0 folder, etc., but the problem has reappeared after each update.

A web site that I am not familiar with has somehow become my home page on Firefox. I followed the procedure outlined in the Help screen, dragged the icon from my required page to the Home button, but next time Firefox is opened the change is ignored. I sometimes get a pop-up window saying a change to my home page has been ignored at the end of a session even when I didn't try to change it.
