My kids were messing with my computer and must have pushed something and everything disappeared. I need to know how to put an address bar (back button, refresh, ect) back up into the top of my window. Part of the problem is that my computer screen is cracked and I can't see anything in my menu easily. A command that would restore the address bar would help. Thanks.

Dont laugh, but yes I have firefox 3.6.28 with windows xp and sp 2. and just recently this stupid plugin check keeps popping up every time i open my firefox. My version 3.6 was fine until today. and nothing on my end has changed with my knowledge.

Yes i know most would tell me to update my firefox to correct it, BUT I DO NOT WANT TO UPDATE. if i wanted a newer version i would download it.

Personally I hate the new versions of firefox, and have no use for them. and do not want to update to something I DON'T WANT. I choose to keep my old firefox, I do not want to update it every time mozilla feels like changing or adding some stupid feature i do not use, need or want. leave versions alone for petes sake mozilla

With that said how can i permanently stop that stupid checker ?

I have Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 and I was wondering if it support the newest version of Firefox and if it runs alright on there. I haven't been updating it since 3.6.28 because I really didn't like the look and my mom was having all sorts of issues with hers and Adobe. I have recently lost my Norton Toolbar that was on the top when the latest update for 3.6 came out. I'm planning on upgrading soon and wondered if it would work well on it. My moms comp her adobe keeps crashing on there and her browser sometimes doesn't want to reopen after being shut down.

My laptop has limited RAM - about 2GB. Of the browsers I've tried (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), Firefox uses the least RAM, but it still uses around 1GB of RAM to display about 10 tabs (gmail, facebook, reader, and assorted other websites) - this seems insanely high.

Thinking back, this didn't seem to be a problem "back in the day", so to speak, so I tried installing Firefox 3.6 again.

Lo and behold, with the same addons and the same tabs open, Firefox 3.6 is using 300MB of RAM where Firefox 21 used 980MB of RAM. In addition, navigation is noticeably snappier in Firefox 3.6 - probably because it doesn't have to page to disk as often (which would often lock up my computer using Firefox 21).

I thought that newer versions were supposed to improve memory performance, not triple the required memory...

Basically fire fox will open to the homepage and that's it. If I type in the search bar or link/navigation bar and hit enter, nothing will happen. Clicking on a bookmark or a link from the history will not do anything. FIrefox simply will not respond. Using another browser gets working results, so my internet isn't the problem.

I went back to firefox 3 to get things working again. I Tried to re-install firefox 18 again and everything installs correctly but NOTHING works.

So any help would be appreciated.

Following a recent Flash upgrade, I cannot hear sound on YouTube videos. I can still hear sound on the FF video test page, here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/navigational-sounds

So I went to this help page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/No%20sound%20in%20Firefox?s=sound+youtube&r=0&e=es&as=s

On that page, it references a Windows function called "Volume Mixer". The screenshot shows three applications in the Volume Mixer function, these are called "System Sounds", "Mozilla Firefox" and "Plugin Container for Firefox".

I only have the one called "System Sounds". The other two are missing. Why is this so, and how do I reinstate them? On the Microsoft forum, they tell me that applications are added here automatically.

Another forum suggested the plugin was blocked by my firewall. This is not so. And yet another forum suggested that I disable crash protection using an about:config setting: there is no way I am going to do that.

I have been trying Xmarks for a short while and am upgrading to FF12. Can FF12 sync directly (automatically) with IE.

I use IE rarely, usually when some program forces a call to it. I'm more concerned with moving the IE favorites I might create than FF bookmarks to IE.

I dislike the idea of have to go though the export/import process over and over.

How to keep Firefox from changing download designations

Here's the problem with latest Firefoxes (15-17) as well as Palemoon:

Create three folders on your desktop - name them A, B and C. Now open up Firefox. Go to webpages that have multiple images to download. Click open the images from the various webpages while holding down the Ctrl key.. You will now have multiple tabs of the various images. Now open each tab with an image, right click the image, save as a random name and make the download designation folder A. Do this for all tab images.

Now go back to the first tab image, right click the image, save as a random name and make the download designation folder B. Continue doing this for remaining tab images. As soon as you attempt to download an image from a different webpage, Firefox will change the download designation to folder A.

Typically when you set a download designation in a browser, the designation does not change unless you manually change it. Firefox will keep changing the download folder for each new webpage with images.

Now do the same as the last paragraph but save the images to folder C. As soon as you get to an image from different webpage, Firefox will (I do not see why it is doing it) change the download folder to either A or B, but not C.

Hello,

I have a problem with Mozilla Firefox: the browser doesn't open certain sites such as www.google.com, www.youtube.com and others, without some connection or similarities between them. There is no error, just remains a blank page when I write those sites on the address bar. If a page is already loaded and I write www.google.com on the address bar, nothing happens, remain the same page. In the search bar if is set www.google.ro, still doesn't work. I specify that those sites work well on other browsers. Operating systems is Windows 7 Ultimate.

I've tried:

  • disable antivirus,
  • disable firewall,
  • Disable all add-ons,
  • delete cookies and Cache,
  • Create new profile,
  • manually delete profile,
  • full uninstal (remove all components),
  • Installing oldest vesiune (3.9 , 6.0),
  • installing new version (12.0 , 15.0a),
  • installing x64 version (Nightly 15.0a x64),
  • reset firefox,
  • new user in Windows,
  • virus scan,
  • malware scanning.

The only thing didn't try is reinstalling Windows, and I want to avoid that. Please HELP!

Thank you for your time and consideration

No matter whether I am using FireFox on MAC or Windows my new posted home page is not showing up when I access the domain. The home page in question is only a jpeg image labeled index.html in the prime directory. The jpeg or "home page" is accessible and is coming up correctly in IE. I am checking it on a desktop MAC and a Windows 7 laptop. Again the home page is only one file.
