When I go up to "file-edit-view etc and I put cursor over it the word it's pointing to disappears. How can I make it stop. I need to see what I'm pointing at!!

I'm using Windows XP and this issue just started this morning. For some reason my firefox crashed. I got everything fixed but now when I go the the top where it has "File Edit View History etc" and I put the cursor over it the word blanks out. It never used to do this and I can't work with it like this. I prefer Firefox over any other web browser. Please tell me how to change the settings so the word stays there when the cursor highlights it and doesn't disappear. Thank you.

Did you already reboot the computer?
Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • I can't seem to find the bar with "file, edit, view, etc". I can view it if I press "alt", but when I hit any other key it disappears again. The back and forward arrow, house, refresh and "url" space is missing

    * In Firefox 3.6 and later on Windows you can hide the "Menu Bar" via "View > Toolbars" or via the right-click context menu on a toolbar.
    * Press F10 or press and hold the Alt key down to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily.
    * Go to "View > Toolbars" or right-click the "Menu Bar" or press Alt+V T to select which toolbars to show or hide (click on an entry to toggle the state).

  • How do I get "File", "Edit", "View", etc. to show up on my toolbar rather than them all being consolidated into "Menu"?

    I don't want everything consolidated under "Menu", I want to see "File", "Edit", "View", etc. listed across my toolbar. I played around with it as much as possible, and I have searched Firefox Help to no avail. I can't believe this option would be non-existent. The consolidation may be visually pleasing, but functionally it's annoying and is slightly more time consuming. Please help, thank you very much. (^-^)/

    I am using CS6 InDesign on a PC using a Windows 7 operating system.
    Due to eyesight issues, I need to have the menu bars of programs in easy-to-read font and picture size.  Specifically, the menu bar across the top (File, Edit, View, etc.), and the menu bar on the left side with the graphic depiction of options.
    In earlier versions of Windows (e.g. XP), whenever I changed the screen resolution on my computer to a lesser resolution in order to show the link icons on my desktop in a larger, more readable size, all the software programs, including yours, appeared on my screen with the menu bars in the larger font size that I needed.
    However, in Windows 7, this is not the case.  Even though I have selected the lowest resolution, making the icons on my desktop extremely large, I cannot read the options across the top menu bar of your program, nor the pull-down menu items that they contain.  I cannot see the graphic depictions of options on the left side of the screen. They are all too small.  How can I make your program increase the size?

    NO way.

  • I updated to Firefox 4 and there's no orange Firefox button and the Menu Bar is still there (File, Edit, View, etc.). Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

    As the question states, I tried updating from Firefox 3 to Firefox 4 two different ways and though I see a difference, it's definitely not all of Firefox 4. I updated with the auto update installer and downloaded the exe and installed and it's still not right. I don't have the new Firefox style or the Infamous Orange Firefox button. My Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, Etc...) is still there as well. The only thing that has really changed is the tabs going above the URL bar. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

    To get the new style UI you need to hide the menu bar. To do that in the View menu select Toolbars, then click on the "Menu Bar" entry.
    If you need access to the menus you can press either Alt or F10 to temporarily display them.

  • When filling out a form, some fields copy to others when I tab to the next. How can I make this stop?

    When filling out a form, some fields copy to others when I tab to the next. How can I make this stop?

    You can't using Adobe Reader. It looks like whomever created the form used the same identifiers (names) for various fields. Each field with the same name will populate with the information used in another field of the same name. This is intentional.
    Normally when I see this, it tells me that someone created an initial field then copy/pasted it to make additional fields but forgot to change the names.

  • Just restored my iPhone from iCloud. My wife and I have always shared one iCloud ID. But since my restore, when a call comes in, it rings on both my phone and hers. How can I make this stop?

    Just restored my iPhone 5  from iCloud. My wife and I have always shared one iCloud ID. But since my restore, when a call comes in, it rings on both my phone and hers. How can I make this stop?  We had it all set up fine before the restore, and there was a trick to it in the settings.  I've noticed that since my restore, her phone has picked up what looks like the symbol of a phone in the upper right corner of the display, right next to the Bluetooth symbol.

    Hi Big Slick,
    Welcome to the Apple Support Community!
    It sounds like your iPhones may be using a new feature in iOS 8 called Continuity. The following article and information explains how to set up this feature for phone calls. You can review the information on the setup to reverse this effect. My suggestion would be to turn off FaceTime on one of the devices.
    Connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac using Continuity
    Phone calls
    With Continuity, you can make and receive cellular phone calls from your iPad, iPod touch, or Mac when your iPhone is on the same Wi-Fi network.
    To make and receive phone calls, here's what you need:
    Sign in to the same iCloud account on all your devices, including your Mac.
    Your iPhone and your iPad or iPod touch need to use iOS 8 or later. Your Mac needs to use OS X Yosemite.
    All devices must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
    All devices must be signed in to FaceTime using the same iCloud account. This means any device that shares your Apple ID will get your phone calls. Look below for instructions on how to turn off iPhone cellular calls.
    Wi-Fi Calling needs to be off. Go to Settings > Phone. If you see Wi-Fi Calling, turn it off.
    Cheers,
    Joe
