I had version17 update installed over version 14 without my permission as I have set my preferences & setting's......how can this happen?? anyway I am now trying to correct this because I do not want my TABS on top, I really hate Tabs on top I have win7 & IE9 elsewhere & they dont impress me much.....so is their a SHORT FIX to either have, the choice of selection on my MENU-VIEW-BOOKMARKS- above Customize or just set to bottom position permanently without any choice......thanking you, yours sincerely liamo777

Maybe this has asked before, I already checked some older posts, but didn't find exactly the same type of font rendering I have.

The thing is that on some websites (some only, and rarely) I get these funny looking fonts, they are not like symbols or just gibberish, it can be read and understood like normal characters but I perfectly know something is not right, I will post 2 screenshots for you to see:

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B89XHw6WcgFvZ0ZFTjRMd2cybFU and https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B89XHw6WcgFvU0pacy1kdFIzWEk


So my thoughts are that I'm probably missing some font or misconfigured setting. I have tried disabling the "Allow websites choose their own fonts..." settings with success, but I do want to leave that option enabled, so what to do?

NOTE: I am on Debian Linux using latest firefox from official website.

Thanks

Joe

hi: absolutely love love the new "pin tab" feature. maybe it's not new. I just stumbled on it.

I like it's sizing. neat and compact.

my desire is to use it, but Firefox not try to open page until I click on the tab (so it's really acting as a bookmark located on my bookmark toolbar )

I don't want Firefox to try and open page as I have 9 tabs and it takes sooooo long to load ... and wastes data. I am on broadband but still 9 at once taxes my beloved Firefox

OR

if cant do above, I'd line to resize my bookmark toolbar just on left say first 10, to be the - compact neat (so no separator space) - icon only and no text

how do I do either of these?

I have noticed this for quite some time now, but the "top of page" (Home) and "bottom of page" (End) hotkeys don't work properly anymore.

Sometimes it works as expected.

Sometimes, it only change the line the cursor is pointing to (despite not being in a modifiable area), and I need to use Ctrl+Home / Ctrl+End to make it works (ie: the official firefox hotkeys help page)

Sometimes, none of this works (on forums most of the times).

Is there some settings to make it work like old firefox (as I said, that issue is going on for quite some time now so I don't know which version was working correctly)

When I begin typing in the awesome bar, I always get a particular result and I can't figure out how to remove it. It is not in my history, not in my bookmarks, I can't find it to remove it. Most annoningly, it is autocomplete suggestion so I have to consistently move around it.

It occurs everytime, as I type "read" - headed to Google Reader, but the autocomplete result is "readbility.com" though I can't find how to remove that.

The problem is when site provides you with "Wiki translation" service. If I point cursor on the line the site shows in an floating window the translation of a string or it's original. It's very annoying service! I may turn it off by not allowing scripts in browser, but I need them (scripts playing) on the other tabs!...

Is there any other way to stop this function.

The question is a little abstract so let me explain.

Suppose I make a webpage solely for offline use, say an Image Viewer so that users can view their photos full screen.

The user has the option to either select files or drag n drop files https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Using_files_from_web_applications

The files are then iteratively stored in IndexedDB.

When the user closes the browser and comes back the next day and opens up the webpage, the images are automatically loaded instead of having the user select the images again.

The problem comes when the user first uploads the images. Some images might have the same name.

Do I have to check if the 'key' already exists in the DB before hand or can I store the file path of the images in the DB as the key?

Hello: I recently discovered about:about, about:config, and i love these hidden bits of info. But i will forget about them... (as im just not a technical so i dont remember stuff like that) --- please note: I dont want to add to bookmark as i will even forget there as i have 100s.... and these are classed as firefox things for me... so not in my bookmarks (my bookmarks are my things v technical ffox things) --- similar to PageInfo option that is provided under Tools menu


So i would like to add to my Menubar Tools/About:About Toolbs/About:Config and Tools/Customerise Toolbars (rather than right clicking in grey space between icons on the toolbar)


is it possible? if so, how do i?

My webmail account works, though slowly, when I'm using NetScape 7.1. When I try to use the same program and service with FireFox 12.0, I can receive email, but sending email gets me an error message that's something like "Could not establish an SMTP commection with the server." The service tells me that my outgoing smtp port should be 465 if I'm using SSL, and 25 if I'm not using SSL. Also, if I'm asked about "authentication," it should be "the same as incoming." Where do I find these settings in FF12.0?
