Now a days, its taking too much time to download images, and sometimes the images doesn't display at all. Apart from this, when I use the down arrow key to scroll down the page, the cursor starts blinking on the web page as if we have opened a word document. And once the page scrolled down it doesn't go up.

Re: Facebook; The games appear enourmous. I've checked IE8 and Chrome for the same FB games and there are no problems, so the problem is obviously on your end. I prefer your product, but can't use w/FB games. The FB home page and my personal AT&T home page are normal sizes and print in all browser so it's just the games.

Why Can't I Thank The Guy Who Helped Me Solve My Problem

A week or so ago, I posted a problem related to FFox not starting with my last session, when it's what I have saved in my preferences - - Well Thanks to cor-el (who is li… (read more)

A week or so ago, I posted a problem related to FFox not starting with my last session, when it's what I have saved in my preferences - - Well Thanks to cor-el (who is listed with an incredible 73,525 posts!) I checked http://kb.mozillazine.org/Preferences_not_saved & found I had 2! prefs.js files - naturally (thanks to MacroSloth) in 2 different locations, so as soon as I deleted the older 1 & restarted FFox, it immediately came back with my latest session, just the way I wanted

I suggest if anybody has a similar problem with FFox not starting with their latest session (when it's what you have set), then you might find the perfect solution is to check whether you have 2 prefs.js files & to delete the older

Anyway, I wanted to post my gratitude To Cor-El for the lead which led to the solution, but the mozilla support site kept telling me, after I jumped thru the hoops they set up, how I couldn't post the reply (namely these thanks to cor-el) I wanted, so I've had to resort to this work around, by posting this question : why couldn't I post my thanks on the thread itself?

My software allows a user to open Attachments. I get a box with the title "Opening message1.txt" which also has an "Open with" radio button. I then click the OK button and my attachment is displayed. However, I also get a second box with the title "Downloads." How do change the Firefox Options to not get the Downloads box?
