When I open a new tab, it immediately shoots me to a search site called "trozi". I've searched for a solution all morning and nothing helps. I've tried to go into the menu and reset the values, I've completely reset firefox, I've tried disabling add-ons; nothing gets this site to go away. I'm getting really, really frustrated at this point and am thinking of switching browsers just to get the problem to stop, but I'd rather not do that.

Although I'm using Linux I am not very knowledgeable with PCs so please do not give me very complicated instructions. Using the method under "Installing outside a package manager" on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux I put Firefox on my PC long ago, and I'd like to wipe it off and start anew. The uninstall support page says to delete the firefox folder in the home directory, but after doing that and using a fresh copy it still had my old settings so I suspect there are more files elsewhere.

Firefox opens at my home page as desired, but it is on a window in the upper right corner, about 4"wide and 3" tall. It readily drags out into a full-sized display, but I want it to open that way, as it did before I updated to yesterday's version of Firefox. i find no options immediately obvious to set this opening size as a default. How do I do this? Also, I now have a problem with Flash crashing that I did not have before the update. How do I fix that?

Hi all,

Thanks for your attention.

I am using the last version of Mozilla Firefox on Windows 7.

I want to reduce the height of the title bar and tabs bar, in order to save a much space as possible. Now, my title-bar and tabs-bar look like in the attached picture (default height, default theme). I want to kill all that blue space in terms of height. I'd like the blue region (I guess is the tabs-bar) to be as tall as a classic Windows Explorer title bar, which is 18 pixels (picture attached). Then, I'd like the grey area below (containing the address bar, the icons of Home, Add-ons, Bookmarks and so on and so forth) to be reduced too, to a height that is the minimum required to host the address bar, or maybe just 1 or 2 pixels more than that. If necessary, I would reduce all icons too, to fit in it. I want to do it manually (no external add-ons).

I have already created chrome folder within the active profile folder and user.Chrome.css file (plain text, .css, UTF-8). I have tried a number of code lines to customize the tab height, read here and there around this and external websites, but still it does not work. It seems that Firefox ignores the .css file. To be accurate, if I increase the height, it works, if I decrease, it does not, like if there is a minimum threshold.

I currently have the following text in my .css file (my last trial):

@namespace url("https://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

/* Tab bar: adjust height - chrome://browser/skin/browser.css */
#tabbrowser-tabs,
.tab-background-start[selected=true]::after,
.tab-background-start[selected=true]::before,
.tab-background-start,
.tab-background-end,
.tab-background-end[selected=true]::after,
.tab-background-end[selected=true]::before {
  min-height: 18px!important;
}
#tabbrowser-tabs {height:18px!important;}
#tabbrowser-tabs toolbar button > .toolbarbutton-icon { padding-bottom:2px !important; }

For the icon and the text you can modify the padding or margin of those elements with these selectors:

.tab-text {padding-bottom:3px !important; }
.tab-throbber, .tab-icon-image  {padding-left:2px !important; }

Can you help me to reach my target?

Some abusive Google AdWords ads exploit the input tag's autofocus attribute to override links to internal anchors deep in the page.

When I follow a link such as: http://www.example.com/page.html#paragraph5

This should set the top of the page as the internal link with name (HTML4 or less) or id (HTML5) "paragraph5". This has been the case pretty much since the invention of HTML.

Unfortunately, HTML5 introduced the attribute "autofocus" to the input tag. Some abusive advertisers have noticed that they can exploit this to override the behavior of the actual website, and scroll the page to focus on the advertisement instead of the site's content.

Here is an example of an obnoxious, abusive AdWord advertisement from Adobe: https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/richmedia/studio/pv2/40930760/20160126194122120/AdobeStock728x90.html?e=69&renderingType=2&leftOffset=0&topOffset=0&c=8dPnUcilTf&t=1

Google AdWords is not going to police this abusive behavior. Google likes it when people view its advertisements instead of actual site content.

It is possible for the owner of a website to individually ban certain advertisements from his website. However, there is no way for an individual who does not own a website to ban certain Google AdWords advertisements from a website he frequents.

I find the "autofocus" attribute to be completely useless for normal browsing and highly obnoxious when misused by abusive advertisers. It is very likely that more and more advertisers will use this trick to break websites. Therefore, I would like a way to completely disable / ignore the "autofocus" attribute within Firefox.

How can I do this? Is there a configuration I can change? Is there an Add-On I can install?

I am concerned these characters suggest that the browser's secure connection has been breached. I do not see these when I use Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. I am aware there was a security concern with https connections that is supposed to have been resolved. I have updated my FireFox browser to the latest version, but the characters still continue to display when I am logged into one particular financial institution. That is the only time they appear. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I get this error message when trying to access my microsoft accounts, including hotmail, from my desktop. This is the only site that has an issue, I can access other website, secure or not. I have the same access issue with chrome and IE, but Tor browser works. I can access my microsoft accounts from my laptop which is on the same home network. I have tried clearing cache, cookies, history. I have run ipconfig /flushdns and ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew. I have run firefox in safe mode. I have tried disabling my firewall and virus protection. I have connected direct to the cable modem instead of through a router. I have run a virus scan (i'm using bitdefender). I have tried everything that seems appropriate from this website: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Error_loading_any_website#Router_configuration. Nothing seems to work. I'm out of ideas for what to try next. Any help is appreciated.

Don't know if anyone will answer this question correctly? And when it comes to time, I have very little of it. I work my butt off to be sitting here wasting time on finding simple info. So the real question i have is, Where is the bookmarks folder located on my Desktop PC? I have Windows 7 Pro and I am using Mozilla Firefox 34.0.5 I am fed up with Internet Explorer, however I do like the way Internet Explorer stores my favorites on my Desktop PC. I gave a direct description to what i want to know and i expect a direct answer, not some long drawn out run me here and there answer. Like all support communities, everyone thinks everyone asking a question has time to spend days, weeks, months looking for a simple answer to a simple question. Like day and night is there such a folder for Firefox, like there is for Internet Explorer, saved to a PC. Thank You For Your Time And Info.

I've been changing my bookmark names in "Properties" and I normally "Right-Click" on the bookmark and hit the "Up-Arrow" once to get properties.

I've got the bookmark saved somewhere else but it's much more convenient in the "Most Visited" location and I can't get it back.

I'm very limited by the current test search features. And I'd like to see some advanced features like: 1) I HATE that the find bar disappears all the time. I would like it to be visible all the time -- not disappear when I change tabs, or open a new tab. 2) I HATE that the toolbar is on the bottom and not the top. All my work is done around the top of the window and when I need to enter a something in the find box I have to go to the bottom... very inefficient. 3) I would like to search for multiple words at the same time. Currently if there's multiple words that I'm searching for in multiple tabs, I have to type in each word individually for each tab. I'm in the process of searching for five word in 20+ tabs... you do the math. Even if I could enter: oneword OR twoword OR threeword OR fourword OR fiveword... this would be very helpful. 4) The nicest feature of all would be: the ability to highlight multiple links in a webpage and then get firefox-addon to search all the links for any of, and all of, the requested words (ie. oneword, twoword, threeword, etc) This would save me hours and hours of keying in words. AND please note: searching a specific site with google site does not work in most cases as it is not specific enough or Google is for some reason not able to search the site (the site must somehow be search while hidden from the user and then opened in a tab if there are any results -- and I would like the results highlighted).

I have been wanting this for years and am very surprised that nothing like this has been developed... maybe it's not possible to do? (But I doubt is, as I've see greasemonkey scripts that have done similar things...)
