Can anyone help me this is driving me bat! I'm using Firefox 16 64 bit and whenever I play any video my mouse cursor gets very laggy and choppy, especially when moving the cursor over the video itself. I'm completely updated with my Adobe Flash and FF but it still happens. I never had this problem in FF 15. Is there some way to downgrade without losing my settings and stuff?
I updated my Firefox to version 16 and where I used to be able to middle-click on links to open them in a new tab, now NOTHING happens when I do it. No new tab opens or anything. I've looked through all of my settings and can't find anything that has changed from my previous settings regarding opening middle-clicked links in a new tab / window. HALP!
Here's my problem, I have a shortcut to the regular 32 bit version of Firefox which I use as my main browser because there isn't a real 64 bit version of it to use (common already Mozilla! Get with the #$(*# times!! ), BUT I also have a shortcut to the FF Nightly version which is 64 Bit. Stick with me here!
I'm using Firefox 5 although this was also happening on version 4, when I have a lot of tabs open or if I run it for too long navigating to a web page will stop loading until I move my mouse cursor over the tab bar. I used to have a problem where I just needed to move the mouse to get the page to finish loading but oddly even that doesn't really work now, it has to be moved over the tab bar at the top of the browser window. Does anyone else have this problem?
We all know there are possibly hundreds of ways to tweak Firefox to speed it up in this way or that. Well, here's another one, . This tiny, free program is about as easy as it gets to do, as opposed to many of the other tips and tweaks that have you digging into weird config files and settings that you don't understand. It's as easy as 1 .. 2 ... (in case you were wondering where the "3" is, there isn't one ... you're all done after "2").
In an effort to clean up the top of my Firefox display I inadvertently turned off my main menu bar.. OOOPS! Once you do that you can't get to edit to turn it back on.
Here is how to fix:
To turn it off again (if you want):
I'm a personally a huge fan of Del.icio.us, and it's Firefox addon. I don't even use the regular Bookmarks option in my browser anymore and use that instead. That way I have access to all of my bookmarks, tagged, from anywhere I want.
Anyway, one thing about the addon that has always irked me is that I had to manually check the "Mark as Private" checkbox every single time I added a new bookmark, since I like to keep all of mine private. But no mas! Here's a slick tip on setting up the addon to automatically check the Mark as Private for you.
Tab Candy is currently in Beta testing at Firefox and I'm really excited about it. I'm one who has a dozen or so tabs open at once, currently I have 17 open . Anyways with tab candy you can organize them, set them into groups or do a quick look to see what you have by looking at a little snap shot of them. Here is a little video that explains it much better then I can...
Well Firefox 4 Beta is here and it looks pretty nifty. I downloaded it and have been playing around a bit on it this morning, seems to be lots of cool new add-ons and features. There is also a feedback button in the top right where you can let them know what you think about it.
