please give me back my green, yellow and red buttons for my firefox. I just downloaded this and they are not there. It is not clear how to get them back either. Why am I expected to simply sort this out myself? What is wrong with you guys? I cannot find this... Doing business with you software interface designers is like an impossible game of telepathy. If this were to happen at work it would be referred to as 'constructive dismissal' , this means setting someone up to fail. For people, you, to advertise a product as easy to use and fantastic is just crazy!

I'm trying to change my new tab, and I've already reset Firefox as well as going to about:config, and using search reset. Can someone help?

This has happened a few times, and every so often the new tab would reset itself, and I went back to about:config to put it back. Now it won't change at all! I've already reset Firefox, so please don't mention that. I also tried downloading search reset with no luck either. Please don't mention those two. I need another option!

I always get sites that tell me that Seamonkey is not supported. They can be sites like Yahoo mail, Epic Citidal etc. These sites reject when Seamonkey reports being Firefox compatible. Now I can understand at some level that other sites do not recognize the product, but why does Mozilla not recognize its own product?

I have been informed that the" adobe flash player" has been giving people problems with their computers. Therefore it was strongly suggested to me to update the player on the website: get.adobe.com\flashplayer When I went up to that website, and went to install the adobe update - it asks me to close the Mozilla Firefox program. I do not want to lose my Mozilla Firefox, so could you please let me know how I can close it and then install the adobe update, and then reopen Firefox. Thank you in advance for your information, as I am not hugely computer literate. Regards to you, Sandralee

Don't know what else to say except that I've tried every suggestion to stop the multiple tiled icons in the task bar as I could find. When I say tiled I mean that the second and third (etc.) icons are slightly offset to the right of the top one. If there are several there and I click on the top one every page I visited but did not close before going on to another website will appear in a small window just above the taskbar.

A person helped me change my browser from Internet Explorer 7 to FireFox. Now I cannot find the email link on FireFox. I right click in the upper toolbar & hit customize. Their is no email. When I hit customize, the icons shrink & I can see more icons on the upper toolbar. When I cancel out of customize, I can only see 2 of the icons & I cannot bring up any others. Does Firefox not use email or does it have to be G mail, ect. ? My email is dolls@xxxxxxx.xxx.

because: 1) I forgot my FIRST username, and that account uses my correct email address, which made me use a different one for the second account (this one), which leads to cause #2: 2) Live.com has changed their protocols; I can no longer log into the account I used to register THIS Firefox Support account because I am routed to a DIFFERENT account there that I had to create because the FIRST account there became unavailable to me, and just you try getting support from Microsoft!

The email address associated with this account is no good. The GOOD email address YOU won't allow me to use..AND IT'S MINE!!!

When I right-click an underlined word in the spell checker and chose the option Add To Dictionary it doesn't. Everything appears normal, I get no error messages. However, the next time I use that word the spell checker will again tell me it is misspelled. Help please. This is very frustrating.

services.sync.syncInterval is reset/overwritten when I 'Sync Now'

Hi,

I use Firefox sync with multiple devices and I wanted to reduce the sync interval so that my stuff gets sync'ed more frequently.

Note I sync "Add-Ons", "Bookmarks" and "Preferences" between devices.

If I go into the about:config preferences and change the "services.sync.syncInterval" value from the default 3600000 to 60000 I see the value change.

HOWEVER if I then perform a "Sync Now" from the menu I immediately see the "services.sync.syncInterval" value reset to 3600000.

I was expecting that the 60000 would instead be sync'ed across to all my devices and would remain.

Can someone please advise how I might resolve this?

Appreciate any help, thanks for reading!

For more than a year now Firefox has been the bane of my existence. I cannot go through a single day without it crashing at least ten times. Some days it crashes so much I cannot complete my work. I have tried everything from uninstalling and re-installing with a totally new profile. I have sent in crash reports which NEVER elicit a response. I have even gone so far as to format the entire goddamn machine and reinstalling everything from the OS on up. NOTHING! Crash, crash, crash all effin day.

What use is sending the crash info if you NEVER BOTHER TO TELL US THE RESULT???

I am an IT professional; I have installed Firefox on EVERY client machine I work with. Thanks for making me look like an ass.

Chrome opens a whole new process every time you make a new tab. That slows down the computer to a crawl. IE is a piece of shit and has been for far longer than Firefox has. What are my choices?

Why is there NO BROWSER that can deliver the internet to me anymore?
