This is not a specific question, as it is more of a general frustration with Firefox. I notice Firefox is much faster if I disable many add-ons I have installed over the years. It seems like Firefox gets a bad wrap because some add-ons slow down Firefox. Aren't there benchmarking tools available to show before and after results of using an add-on? I am using 5 out 19 add-ons at the moment and performance is a lot faster. All this time though, I just thought Firefox sucked when disabling add-ons leads me to believe that the culprit for the slow performance is due to an add-on.

Anyway, I think if Mozilla wants to protect their reputation more, the benchmarking tools should be a tool a browser user can interact with.

Firefox will not print at all to my HP PSC 750 printer and loses all formatting when trying to print to Brother HL-5240 printer

I have no problem with either of my printers when printing from either Avant 11.7 or IE 6.0.2800.1106 but can not print from Firefox 3.6.13 (or earlier). When trying to print to the HP PSC 750 inkjet printer, a "Printing" dialog box appears, showing Title: xyz and a progress meter showing 100% but this is being overlaid almost immediately by a second dialog box stating "An unknown error occurred while printing" and, while the printer continues saying "printing", no printing will take place.

When trying to print to the Brother HL-5240 laser printer, printing will occur but all formatting is lost and what comes out is a block of unintelligible running text.

What can/must I do to get Firefox to print correctly to my two printers?

My current version of Firefox has become corrupt. When I try to download a new version with Internet Explorer or my current version of firefox it goes to 53% unpacked and then it comes up with file corrupt. I have had the same issue before and have solved it by using a linux CD to download a windows version and it unpacks and installs great. I now cannot find a place where I can specify which version I want and it insists on using the download for Linux which is useless for me.

The top left of previous Firefox versions had the left arrow key to go back to the previous web page and a button that would list all the previous web pages so that I could select, say, the 5th previous page. I can't find this button on Firefox 4. Is there a way to do this?

I installed Firefox ver. 4.0.1 but everything looks the same as before the install. The only noticeable difference is that the Home Button did move from the middle to the right side. When I check About Firefox, it does list the version as 4.0.1. When I click on Check for Updates, it says, “Firefox is up to date” When I click on Download Firefox, it says I am already running 4.0.1

According to the TAKE THE TOUR site, the most obvious missing features are: 1) Firefox Button which should be in the upper left-hand corner 2) Bookmark Button which should be to the right, next to the Home Button.

Also, there is no “one click” button for Private Browsing, the Awesome Bar does not seem to have the extra features as described, and new sites do NOT open as Tabs,

According to Firefox 4.0.1 is compatible with Windows 2000 so it should not be a problem with the operating system. One other tip, I did try to upgrade one of the Add-ons (AniWeather) which has been updated to be more compatible with 4.0.1. It would not install because of missing dll’s. This seems to be one more clue that 4.0.1 did not fully install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Firefox 3.6.17, Win2K. Don't laugh at the OS, it just works.

But I get the Plugin Check page every time I start Firefox. It doesn't help, because I have the most recent versions of all my plugins that support Win2K. I just *cannot* update my plugins.

How do I kill off this screen?

Well, you know, short of removing Firefox forever.
