I am a loyal mozilla firefox user. I just want to give advice to mozilla, why not make a cloud business or server for the mozilla blog website business?.

I mean, like bloggers from google products, or wordpress and so on. Why not make it for mozilla, later it will sound cool "Mozilla Blog".

I will tell you a little, nowadays all technology is getting more sophisticated, where generally most people will look for information from a video, but there are still many who look for it from website sources, so, many people rely on their advertising through an "Ads". Many also become "Publishers" to earn economic income in this day and age, survey facts are increasing. But there are also many obstacles, especially regulations that are getting crazy from blog providers or advertising providers they work with.

For that why Mozilla does not just make a blog for all webmasters?. My advice is to make it, but it's different in terms of the ads itself, it will be more interesting and of course Mozilla will be more successful. believe me.

I give an example, create a cloud or server for a mozilla blog, when members or bloggers create a website they have a choice between free and premium. (it's mandatory). when they make an ad, they automatically become a "Mozilla Ads Publisher" and can immediately make money for them. This is the point, surely many will switch to Mozilla, I guarantee it.

For the difference between a free mozilla blog and a premium mozilla blog, you know, the order 1-10 or something like that belongs to the premium one and below it belongs to the free one, and there is also a calculation about CPM/CPC or CPA, which is of course bigger for the Premium blog. mozilla.

For the problem of income from advertising, he calls it "Mozilla Advertiser", I guarantee that there will be very many who want to work with mozilla ads, I guarantee that, given the uniqueness, ads will spread more quickly to existing webmasters because the regulations are not too strict will produce a boom. You just have to manage, the rules are minimal, minimal, but still for the clear and not cheating, that's all.


That's all my advice, considering technology is getting more advanced, why not just make it. The main key is: The more tightened the regulations, the more they will be abandoned.

If you need something for example about managing a blog server or blog cloud, I am ready to help.

Thank you.

FF keyboard shortcut "move tab to start" (ctrl + shift + home) does not work for me. I've tried using my regular FF profile (a dozen addons or so) and a VANILLA profile with no addons. The same is true for Ctrl+Shift+End shortcut.

i've also tried on two different keyboards.

so, is it me, is the documentation wrong or is this broken?

thanks

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

I run Firefox with multiple profiles, as there are several people that use this computer. I start firefox with -p <profilename> -no-remote.

This all works fine except if I'm in try to open a link from for instance in an email, I click on the link and it opens the profile manager. If I select a profile that already has an open window I get an error message stating

"Firefox cannot use the profile "Rick" because it is in use. To continue, close the running instance of Firefox or choose a different profile."

Is there anyway to have it open the link in a new tab of an already running profile, rather then having to close the profile and then click the link.

HDD was failing in my other computer. Put in a new HDD and transferred bookmarks (FFox. 16.++ on both) but don't remember how to transfer my saved passwords. Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I'm running XP Pro SP3

How do I restore the original appearance?

I just updated to the newest Firefox. I'm sad that the google toolbar is no longer supported. But I'll soldier on... <big sigh>.

Seriously though: The function I miss from google toolbar is the drop down menu in the search bar, allowing me to 'drop down' and reselect a previous search phrase... what can I say, I'm scatter brained and easily distracted, so I often return to a concept multiple times a week.

How can I emulate the same function in FF 17?

I have an Apple Mac (running MacOS 10.6.8) at a remote location. I want to be able to run Firefox on this machine but with the Firefox display window redirected to my local Mac. I used to be able to do this with UNIX (e.g. LINUX etc.) systems running X11 by setting the DISPLAY variable on the remote host. Is it possible to do this using the X11 on the Mac? and, if so, do I need to rebuild Firefox to display using X11? At the moment, whatever I try, Firefox just starts its window on the system on which it is started.

I would like to know if there's an extension, or if I need to write a script so that Firefox will stop a redirect to a trap yahoo page, that yahoo causes when I try to access my yahoo mail account. Yahoo redirects from my email page every time I try to access it. I can force my way back to email if I highlight the following from the address bar and delete it: /neo/trap?dm=cl&ncrumb=IvdoOqzobdy&.rand=1254591153

That address qualification appears when I try to access "mail.yahoo.com"

If there is no extension I can use, can you explain what I should use to write a script? And where I can research to learn how to write it.

If you could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
