Problem with touchpad using firefox and windows 8.1. I don't have a problem with explorer 11.

new HP computer with windows 8.1. Firefox does not work well with the touch pad when scrolling . very slow and erratic, most noticeable when using facebook. I don't have this problem when using Internet Explorer 11.
Old computer had windows 7 and my preference was to use firefox over explore. At this time i'm being forced to use explore and firefox is to aggravating to use.

Currently Firefox is not available for metro devices.
However, make sure that the touch features are enabled by searching for "touch" in the about:config entries.
In order to change your Firefox Configuration please do the following steps :
# In the [[Location bar autocomplete|Location bar]], type '''about:config''' and press '''Enter'''. The about:config "''This might void your warranty!''" warning page may appear.
# Click '''I'll be careful, I promise!''' to continue to the about:config page.

  • Yahoo mail using firefox and windows 7 drops graphics text in boxes???

    when in yahoo mail, the graphics text within action boxes, ie, send; move etc do not display. sometimes the box outlines do not display. any fix? site works fine with IE. was using 3.6 , tried going to beta 4 but has same problem

    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
    *Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    *https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode
    *https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes
    In Firefox 4 and later [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode Safe mode] disables extensions and disables hardware acceleration.
    *Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
    If disabling hardware acceleration works then check if there is an update available for your graphics display driver.

  • I use Firefox and Windows 7, when I'm using my main account on computer it starts old version of firefox and when I use the guest account it start the new version. Why and how to fix it?

    Guy that repairs my computer asked me if i saved new firefox just on guest account, but i didn't, i re-installed it again and again.

    Apparently it's related to the Firefox plug in.
    This isn't exactly a solution but more of a way to avoid opening PDFs with Firefox's plug in.
    1. Highlight "Tools" from the Menu Bar in the top left of the screen (or click "Options" if using the Firefox Compact Menu)
    2. Select to "Options
    3. Select "Applications"
    4. Look for "Adobe Acrobat Document" under Content Type and to the right under Action select "Use Adobe Reader (default)" instead of the using Adobe Acrobat in Firefox
    5. Open a test PDF. It should open in it's own window now.
    Again, not a complete solution but something that'll at least let you scroll with PDFs open.

  • Using Firefox 4 & Windows 7. Everytime I start Firefox from a shortcut to a website it comes up with the following error 'there was a problem sending the command to the program'. The requested website does load after this. with no problems.

    Using Firefox 4 & Windows 7. Everytime I start Firefox from a shortcut to a website it comes up with the following error 'there was a problem sending the command to the program'. The requested website does load after this. with no problems.
    If a shortcut is used while Firefox is already open the error does not occur.

    As reported in earlier replies, the annoyance disappeared after I upgraded to Roboform 7.5.6, from 7.5.4.

  • Keep getting a pop up at the top of many websites I visit 'firefox security error content at *web address* may not load" I am using the most recent firefox and windows 7.

    Keep getting a pop up at the top of many websites I visit 'firefox security error content at *web address* may not load" I am using the most recent firefox and windows 7. This is happening at many sites, such as hotmail, google reader, and many others.

    Sorry, I don't think that is a message from inside Firefox, the wording doesn't sound correct - at least the beginning of that message. My "gut" thinks that is a MSN Live message to explain and compensate for their lack of security with a re-direct from a secure domain to an un-secure domain. ''(the end of that message)''
    {Ctrl + Shft + J} will open the Firefox Error Console - I'm curious what Firefox has to say about that situation. If you find the error message for that domain, you can right-click the message to '''copy''' it and then paste that error message here.
    Maybe '''TonyE''' or '''cor-el''' will be more familiar with the situation at Live and maybe at Google Reader, I don't use either of those services and have never seen a message like that myself.

    When i use Firefox and do a Google search, find what i need and click on the link I keep getting automatically redirected to another search site called http://www.scour.com
    Can someone tell me if this is a problem with Google or Mozilla? or both? or neither?

    This type of behaviour can be caused by malware. Try running several malware scanners. It is best to run several as each will pick up things that the others miss. Some scanners you can try are:

This does not happen when using IE (which I prefer not to use). I have turned off the anti-keylogger in ZA (an old, and no longer successful fix). Can anyone help? I need my question marks at work.

  • So I just bought a used MacBook from Amazon with OSX 10.5.8.  I am trying to install new software and operating system, but I don't have the passwords to the Users set up in the computer.  What do I do?

    So I just bought a used MacBook from Amazon with OSX 10.5.8.  I am trying to install new software and operating system, but I don't have the passwords to the Users set up in the computer.  What do I do?

    Put your install DVD into the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) and reboot. Be sure to either use the disc that came with your Mac, or, if you installed a later Mac OS X version from disc, use the newer disc. As soon as you hear the boot chime, hold down the "c" key on your keyboard (or the Option Key until the Install Disk shows up) until the apple shows up. That will force your MacBook to boot from the install DVD in the optical drive.
    When it does start up, you'll see a panel asking you to choose your language. Choose your language and press the Return key on your keyboard once. It will then present you with an Installation window. Completely ignore this window and click on Utilities in the top menu and scroll down to Reset Password. After resetting the password use Startup Disk from the same menu to choose your hard drive for startup and restart.

    Setting up a small business network using mac and windows??

    Ok that sounds great. What is your actual question as it relates to AirPort networking? Is it: Can I set up a wired/wireless network with an AirPort base station that support multiple Mac & PC clients? If so the answer is yes.
    If, instead, it is how to I configure an AirPort network to support a small business you will have to provide more details on both your networking & computing equipment in order for any of us to help you.

  • I am using firefox on Windows 7 home premium platform today I updated my firefox to its latest version i.e. 3.6.12 I restart my system but when I click on firefox icon nothing happened in fact its exe was running in backend

    Hi! I am using firefox on Windows 7 home premium platform today I updated my firefox to its latest version i.e. 3.6.12 first I uninstall the firefox but keeps my personal setting and then restart my system but when I click on firefox icon nothing happened in fact its exe was running in backend firefox version 3.5 is working fine on my system as I low grade myself to 3.5 again. Kindly help.

    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox without informing you about that, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox.

  • I cannot get on my email exchange using firefox, and it has been working until today.

    My company uses a owa.postoffice.net exchange, and we are supposed to use internet explorer, or firefox. I have a Mac, so I use firefox, and it has been working fine for the past 90 days, and today, I go to the exchange, type in my password and user name, and I am then sent to just a blank page. I talked to two other Mac user's today within my company and he is not having any trouble at all, so that tells me that is my firefox that is having these problems. I would like someone to call me about this @ 919-669-4909. I do not want to talk over email.

    While using Firefox, a window will start popping up asking me to type in my Kerberos password.'''bold text'''

    I have the same setup, and the same issue. I've gotten to the point where I don't use Firefox for anything anymore if I can help it, because I can't get rid of the popup. Clicking "Cancel" will only stop it for a while, but it'll eventually come back.
    It's happening to my coworker as well, also on the same setup. Both of our issues started on the same day, maybe 3 weeks ago?
