Hi here!! I review a lot of mozilla docs (out dated or without complete info), forums, googling ... about how to share firefox/thunderbird/ligthing data between platforms on dual/multiple boot system. Every user in same trouble are repeating (copy/paste) in the solution to share the SAME FULL PROFILE on all platforms. I review profile data and folders and I can see files and config data that are platform dependent; then I think that share FULL PROFILE between is not the best approach, for example Linux and Windows will produce several problems (and a lot of problems with the add-ons) In these same mozilla docs recommends to share only data and maintain custom profile for each platform, but not more info how to do it. Please can some kind advanced :) provide some info about the correct approach. Or a better tech info about how is possible the recommendation of sharing same profile between platforms without problems. Because with the current doc info, there is no way to get a clear answer (Almost I can't :~). Thx guys!

Hello, I am a bit of a tinkerer and a tech junkie. However, I still find sync to be a very useful and handy tool, and have it applied to all of my devices (tablets, phone, multiple computers). Due to my never-ending quest to make things better, though, I am frequently changing OS'es and uninstalling apps/rearranging registries on many of these devices, so I often find myself needing to reinstall firefox (and thus re-sync).

The only problem here is that sync recognizes each new iteration as its own separate device, even though a vast majority of them cease to exist entirely and are gone forever. This makes my "Tabs From Other Devices" page a huge pain to access, as most of the device names are the same and a lot still have active pages in them.

How would I go about deleting these old accounts from my sync account? Changing my password does no good at all, as since the devices cannot access the server any longer they are still present in my database, and as such are still annoying. Any help is appreciated!

Two pictures of the problem is as follows. As you can see, there are many apparent duplicate devices: http://imageshack.com/a/img14/5290/a29b.png http://imageshack.com/a/img59/6697/6sp4.png

On Linux Fedora (19 & 20 at least, likely others) Firefox automatically finds network attached printers, completely independently of CUPS. The printer it finds for me is legitimate, but it doesn't install drivers to make it work correctly. If this printer is used, it will print out gibberish; sometimes PDF control language, other times total junk. It won't render the page right, and wastes tons of paper.

Thanks!

The default Chrome new-tab page ( http://i.imgur.com/RTvdGze.png ) has a search field, that when typed into, enters text directly into the url bar, allowing you to type mozilla.org ect and having it take you direct to the web page instead of just searching it. Firefox, however, doesn't do this and just searches any querys directly through the search engine.

Is it possible for to make a firefox new-tab page that works like the chrome one? Preferably, I want my new-tab page to only send data to the url bar when I've pressed the enter key, but it doesn't really matter.

Recently had a HD crash and had to re-install windows and all my browsers.

Previously, Firefox would immediately load all my previous tab but now I have to click on each one to get them to load. I have looked in the options and there is no longer a checkbox to tell Firefox to load these tab immediately. The previous version I was using had this option.

Is it still available and if so, where do I find it to enable it?

I just switched to Firefox from Chrome and so far Im loving it, except for one tiny bit, which unfortunatly drives me crazy:

When I use the search from the adress bar to look up functions with dots '.' in them, Firefox always assumes these are websites, add 'www.' and takes me to ' Site could not be loaded' instead of using google to search.

Is there any way to change this behaviour in the adress bar?

The Opera Homepage has changed a lot, since the last time I used it. First, let me say, this question has NOTHING to do with assigning a homepage.

When I open the Firefox Home Page, it brings up a watered down version of Opera's Speed Dial Screen. It's marginally okay. I hope it gets better.

My question is, when I open a favorite website, and I want to make it a favorite and have it appear as an option in the Firefox Speed Dial (homepage) screen. Then I want it to show an icon for the website I accessed. It currently shows a single letter (the first letter of the website's name) in the middle of the little box. As it currently stands, I have three little boxes all containing the letter A. Having an icon makes it much faster for me to find and access the website I want.

I want an icon (picture) to indicate the website site, not just a single letter. I found a place to edit the little box, where I can enter a URL for a custom icon. I have not a clue where to find such a URL. I guessed at various things and they all get an error message that it's an invalid URL. When you put a website on the Opera Speed Dial, they give you a choice of 3 or 4 icons specific to the website. So it is possible for those icons to be automatically found, without me having to figure out where to find them.

How can I make the Speed Dial page appear as I've described? Thanks for your help.
