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?

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!

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.

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 ????

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.

This is a continual problem. Even when I close Firefox and try to access it again, it takes minutes before I can access it again. Today was the first time that I received the window saying that another window of Firefox had to be closed before I could access Firefox when I hadn't even tried to access it to begin with. I don't want to have to restart my computer every time I try to access Firefox each day. Please help!

Id like to do a custom version of FF for our machines (Linux based) which prevents the auto update mechanism working and prevents the user re-enabling it. Any updates would be done by the Linux .deb package management system.

Is there a way to do with by editing the config files of the default binary version or do I need to build my own from source?

For the past few days, when i try to open my fireforx, it will crash immediately.

At first, i thought it was due to my Flash Player. However, i have already updated it to the latest version.

I tried uninstalling the Firefox, without removing my bookmarks, it works fine. However, the next day, the issue comes back again.
