  • I can't get the menu bar to appear, I've tried everything I can find to do on the web. I have a MacBook Pro and I downloaded the lates version of firefox.

    I've tried ctr click, rt click in the toolbar space and looking throughout the available menu items. I need the toolbar or I can't use FireFox

    The poster '''''RobKelly55''''' is using OSX and the menu situation is different.
    *The page link that I posted ( [https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Menu%20bar%20is%20missing Menu bar is missing] ) will automatically detect the OS and Firefox version that you are using when you go to that page.
    *To see the OSX information, you can go to that page with any browser but select MAC on the right hand side, then you can see the information for OSX.
    *After viewing the information, be sure to change back to your OS or re-start Firefox.

  • I purchased my daughter the new ipod. I downloaded the latest version of itunes and after syncing the new ipod, I was unable to get the majority of my songs. They all appear with an exclamation point. Even the ones purchased on itunes. Why?

    I purchased my daughter the new ipod. I downloaded the latest version of itunes. After syncing the ipod, all my songs appear grayed out. They have an exclamation point next to them. Even the ones I purchased from itunes. How do I get my songs back?

    Usually, the exclamation mark tells you that the song was not where the program expected to find it. It may also mean that there was an error with the file itself.
       If you click on the exclamation mark, it may give you a reason. You can also double click the file to make it play. If the file is not found, it will tell you. Just follow the prompts to look for the song again. It will ask you if you want to look for the other missing songs in the same folder. You can do it, but unfortunately, the last few updates have made the program blind to the songs that are there and you sometimes have to do the same process for each song.
       If neither of these help, I would suggest starting from scratch and reinstalling iTunes. I have had to do that before. Do your best to back up the library and such first.
       Sometimes a computer will rename a hard disk (Windows) and all the songs on that disk will be gone to iTunes because it will think it's looking in the right place. It can't recognize that the hard disk or partition has been renamed.
    I know that this is a podcast, but the principle is the same. A dialogue box should pop up to tell you just what the problem is.
       I hope this helps!

  • I have a Max OS X. I have tried over and over to download the latest version of Firefox without success. When I open Firefox it props me to download the lastest version. Why is this not downloading? nruddell@primus.ca

    Why can I not download the latest version of firefox onto my Max?

    If you have problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.
    Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the DMG file to the desktop
    * Firefox 4.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
    * Firefox 3.6.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html
    * Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install
    * Install the new version that you have downloaded
    Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Firefox Profile Folder], so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.

  • Hi, I would like every new tab I open to open my homepage. How do I do this? I'm on a PC and downloaded the latest version of Firefox today. Many thanks!

    Hi, I would like every new tab I open to open my homepage. How do I set this? I'm on a PC and downloaded the latest version of Firefox today. Many thanks!

    Have a look at the [https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage/?src=ss New Tab Homepage] or the [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/my-homepage/?src=search My Homepage] extensions. With My Homepage, if your homepage is set to a search engine, it will give focus to the homepage search bar instead of the address bar when opening a new tab. If you have any questions about installing extensions, [[Using extensions with Firefox]] can help.

  • I accidentally downloaded the latested version of firefox to my outdated Mac 10.3.9 and lost the older version of firefox. I need to get the older version of firefox back?

    firefox won't open on my computer as it says that it might be damaged. I downloaded the latest version of firefox and realized after the fact that the latest version is only compatible to mac 10.4 or higher. My computer is only 10.3.9 so it seems that it's too old. I tried downloading an older version from your website and it failed. Please help. I hope I don't have to go out and purchase a new computer!!

  • The other day I had downloaded the latest version of Firefox and now none of the icons for the different websites I normally go to are there?

    As I said, the other day I had downloaded the latest version of Firefox and after doing so none of the icons for the different websites that normally go to are no longer there. Websites such as MSNBC, MSN, Most visited, that entire strip is no longer visible. I tired resetting Firefox and still nothing. Can anyone tell me how to get them to appear again? It's a hassle every time that I want to go to one of those sites I have to type it in the search bar, instead of just clicking on it as I did before. Please keep in mind if you answer, that I'm still learning about these things called computers and not very well versed in some of the things that you experts know:) Thanks

    On Windows XP Firefox shows the menu bar by default and not the orange Firefox menu button that is shown when the menu bar is hidden.<br />
    The menu bar is the toolbar at the top that shows menu items like File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help.<br />
    You can press the F10 key or tap the Alt key to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily in case this bar is hidden (View > Toolbars or Firefox > Options).
    The Navigation Toolbar shows the Back and forward button and the input field where you type the address of a site that you want to visit (aka location bar) and also has a search bar where you can type items that you want to look up with a search engine (Google).

  • Ever since I downloaded the latest version of firefox..is running slower, I am not really liking the new format, is there anyway to go back to the old one?

    Ever since I downloaded the latest version of firefox..is running slower, I am not really liking the new format, is there anyway to go back to the old one?

    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, 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 and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
    See:
    *https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Server+not+found
    *https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Firewalls
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration 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.

    The best maintained PowerPC browser at the moment is TenFourFox:
    http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/
    It is a Mac port of a newer version of FF thatn any PowerPC Mac can support natively. It runs, looks and feel like FF.
    I found some add-ons that helped TFF with speed issues. Pleae see my post in another PPC forum:

    Tonight opening Numbers caused a 'free update available box' advising me to install the latest version of OS X and then download the latest version of numbers. 'OK' is the only choice.
    I can't force quit Numbers or even shutdown the iMac.

    What to do?
    Thanks.

    NOTE: Just discovered that Adobe is making a bigger mess than any previously.
    They now have a 32-bit uninstaller for Flash '''''AND''''' a separate 64-bit uninstaller for Flash. You will need the 64-bit uninstaller for what you had installed above.

  • How can I uninstall the numerous Firefox applications and then download the latest version. I inadvertently installed Firefox applications . Can you please help?

    Hi, Barbara! Is the problem that you have a lot of different versions of Firefox on your launch bar? Or that you have a lot of different versions in a directory somewhere?
    Either way, on the mac, you should be able to simply:
    1. Close all versions of Firefox
    2. Drag the applications to the trash folder, which will remove them from the folder or your dock
    3. Download Firefox with Safari at getfirefox.com
    4. Open the downloaded file by double clicking it
    5. Once that happens you will have a Firefox icon and a folder with an "A" on it
    6. Drag the Firefox icon onto the A, which will install it into your Applications folder
    7. Open your Applications folder and drag it onto your main dock
    8. You should be able to launch it from your dock by clicking on the Firefox icon.
    Thanks!

  • I just downloaded the latest version of firefox (5.0). Can I delete all the older versions that are still on my drive? 2) When I call up some web sites sometimes the web site comes up 3 or 4 times...how do I stop this from happening?

    I just downloaded the latest version of firefox (5.0). Can I delete all the older versions that are still on my drive?
    When I call up some web sites sometimes the web site comes up 3 or 4 times...how do I stop this from happening? For example if I click on a link the exact same link comes up 3 or 4 times and I have to manually delete all of them but one.

    Do you organise your email into separate folders, or do you just let it accumulate in the Inbox?
    I would strongly advise you not to let it sit in the Inbox.
    When you see this happening, try right-click on the affected folder, select '''Properties''' then '''Repair Folder'''.
    Large folders (actually, a folder in Thunderbird is stored as a file, so it is sensitive to file size limits set by the underlying file system) can be problematic. This is one reason not to let messages collect in one folder. I use Thunderbird's Archive folders so that accumulated mails over several years can happily coexist because they are effectively stored in many small folders. No single mail store folder then exceeds the 2GB or 4GB sizes that have been known to stress the OS. I appreciate that current builds of Thunderbird and a modern 64-bit OS should be able to cope, but practically I find it slows down when given huge files, so I err towards a pragmatic solution; a large number of not very big files.
    Archives are searchable, and a Saved Search folder can give you a virtual composite folder allowing access to the entire Archive.

  • When you downloaded the latest version of Firefox on July 2/11 I lost all my picture files

    When you downloaded the latest version of Firefox on the 2nd of July all my pictures were wiped out even my desktop wallpaper which was one of my pictures. I have looked in all the places I could think of but haven't been able to find them. To try and find them I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it but still none of my pictures have been found. They were in my Windows live photo gallery and some in Documents & Pictures.

    Make sure that you allow pages to choose their colors and that you haven't enabled High Contrast in the Accessibility settings.

    == When I downloaded the latest version of Firefox, the print was so small I could bvarely read it. what do I need to do to enlarge the print without losing some of my tool bars...?

    THIS ISSUE IS RESOLVED FOR ME.
    When I opened this pop-up to view the settings (File > Page Setup > "Format & Options": Scale ), the Scale value was 40%. Changing it to 100% corrected the issue I observed.
    To my knowledge, I have not been inside this pop-up window before to set the Scale option. Could this value be affected by other actions within Firefox? I noticed this while using v12 which was installed 24Apr2012.I know it worked correctly since that installation, so why did the Scale value change?
    UPDATE: I just realized that the Scale option in print preview sets the Scale value in the settings. NOTE TO ALL: This is a sticky setting, not just a setting for a specific output request.
