Ubuntu :: Firefox Doesn't Display Site Menus Properly?

Oct 17, 2010

I'm using Firefox 3.6.10 for Ubuntu 10.10 with the smooth-scaling ppa (only addons I'm using are Firebug and the Ubuntu modifications pack).Several sites with navigation menus the menu is spread over two lines when it obviously shouldn't be (eg. The Telegraph online, BBC News...) this happens no matter what the zoom level is set to. Chromium renders all these pages normally.

Ubuntu :: FIrefox - Get Supplementary Chars To Display Properly?

Nov 9, 2010

Right now I'm getting little boxes with hexcode instead of text-critical marks in my Greek texts that have been marked up. Also, I can't get xml to display in my firefox browser. What am I missing? Shouldn't Firefox parse xml and display something like an html page?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Kubuntu Doesn't Display Properly / What To Do?

Feb 26, 2011

I have an Apple iBook (ancient I know) and whenever I boot from the Live CD (Kubuntu 10.10) it boots up in 800x600 (as far as I can tell that's what it is). This would be a problem however it simplely leaves a huge black column on the right side and has a partially duplicated desktop below it.
When I go to display settings it won't let me change to a higher resolution (1024x768 is what the iBook natively runs at).
This is an iBook G3.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Save Firefox Display Page Properly ?

Jul 16, 2011

I am using firefox 3.6.18 in Ubuntu 10.04. My problem is that if I try to save some webpage in postscript or pdf format, I go to file>print>print-to-file option and choose output file as ps or pdf format. Now if I click to print, I do get the corresponding page saved in ps/pdf format but only the first page is printed(i.e., saved in ps/pdf format) this way, leaving major portion(may be eight pages for example) of the corresponding webpage unsaved. (the option: range of printing: all pages is chosen by default.) Why is this happening and what should I do to print the entire page? (one example is the following page which you may try to save in the way I described above: [url]

Ubuntu :: Firefox Doesn't Render Pages Properly

Feb 12, 2011

It seems that I have been running Firefox unbeknownst to me with a broken configuration. It seems that if I enable the Quote: Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above in Edit->Preferences->Content->Fonts&Colors->Advanced, pages will no longer be render properly -- they are mostly blank.When running on the command line, I notice that I get errors from Pango (whatever that is) and think there may be a connection.

I tried doing sudo aptitude reinstall libpango-perl libpango1.0-0 libpango1.0-common libpangomm-1.4-1 but it didn't fix the problems. (I haven't yet tried uninstalling pango since it looks like it removes some crucial components.)I also tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig and it didn't help.I'm guessing that the fonts cannot be scaled.This otherwise wouldn't be an issue, but it seems that some Firefox addons forcibly ignore the configured fonts and those pop-up windows are mostly blank/empty and therefore useless.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Doesn't Display Italic Text Under GNOME 3?

OpenSUSE :: AbiWord And OOwriter But It Doesn't Display In Firefox

The above link shows a sample which is really very bad at all levels of zoom. This site (I think this is the same problem) is also terrible, until I zoom to a very large size, when it smooths out. GNF - Gambling Network Forums I have set the firefox smoothing to 0, so it is not that. (browser.display.auto_quality_min_font_size;0) Here are screenies, if your browser shows the pages OK: The last one is magnified in an image editor. But here it is, zoomed with Firefox [ctrl + +], it goes smooth at a certain level of zoom. Here it is magnified:

Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.6.11 On Karmic - Menus Do Not Appear?

Oct 26, 2010

When I right-click in firefox, or click on a folder on the bookmarks toolbar (which should drop down a menu of bookmarks within that folder), nothing happens.

Clicking on 'File, Edit, View, History...' menus also does not drop down a menu.

Shutting down firefox does not restore menuse, nor does logging out, or even rebooting the machine.

I think that I may be missing tool tips as well.

Firefox version:

$ firefox --version
Mozilla Firefox 3.6.11, Copyright (c) 1998 - 2010 mozilla.org
Ubuntu version: Ubuntu 9.10

I'm not sure what caused this... I can't think of anything that I've done that might precipitate this, or even exactly when it started.

Ubuntu :: Firefox 4 Menus Are Unstable?

Mar 26, 2011

after a while, all my menus that pop up on Firefox 4 become unstable. When I go to click on the "file", "edit", "view", etc. buttons, they never stay when I go down the list. Also when I right click, the list will not stay either.
This is a bug that needs to be reported, so I am reporting it now. Hopefully we can get this problem fixed in the next update

Ubuntu :: Icons In Firefox's Menus Have Gone Missing?

May 5, 2010

ubuntu 10.04, ff 3.6.3 with some addons installed.

how to reproduce:
open firefox, download and install some plugins/addons that generate menu entries with an icon in front of them.
e.g. "downthemall" (down them all)


there is however space for these icons in the menu. and I can see icons in the bookmark and history menus. (web page favicons)

these icons improve the usability greatly because they offer a visual guide to the menu not only to the item they belong to but also to other items because I know that the item I want is e.g. one above the green triangle.

I have a slightly impaired vision so this a far greater issue to me than you well sighted folks may think. Just put on some glasses with lots of fingerprints on them and you will see the difference.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Minefield Dropdown Menus

Feb 26, 2011

When running Firefox 4.0b13pre (2011-02-25) Minefield occasionally and suddenly I can't access any item in a drop-down menu. The menu appears but just disappears when attempting to move the mouse cursor into the drop-down items list. When the problem starts it applies to all menus. The only solution is to close Firefox and reopen when, of course, all is fine until next time. The problem seems to begin entirely randomly and I can't reproduce it at will.

Ubuntu :: No Right Context Menu For Firefox Menus Under Unity

May 1, 2011

When Unity is disabled, you can delete a bookmark from Firefox by right-clicking on the bookmark, under the bookmark menu, on the Firefox menu bar.When Unity is enabled, you cannot delete a bookmark from Firefox by right-clicking on the bookmark, since a right-click behaves the same way a left-click does. In other words, there doesn't appear to be any context menus.I reverted to the so-called "Classic desktop." There are other aspects about Unity I take issue with, but I will not go into them here.

If the Unity desktop is to be the default desktop for Ubuntu, then it must retain, at a minimum, mind you, the same functionality that was provided by the prior desktop. Access to an application's context menus is one functionality I see no good reason to forgo.

Ubuntu :: Context And Tool Bar Menus Disappear In Firefox?

May 31, 2011

This has been happening sporadically over the past month. I thought it was a problem with 10.04, so I upgraded to 11.04 and it is still occurring.I can't seem to pin down a cause or something that I do to make this happen.Every so often, I will lose the ability to see right click context menus and I am unable to click on the menu buttons. Rather, I can click on the menu names (file, etc), but no menu comes down. I cannot use the keyboard to bring down the menu (alt-f, etc), but I can use keyboard shortcuts to do specific actions (ctrl-t, etc).I was using Firefox 3.6 and now I am using 4 and it is still occurring.

Ubuntu :: Tweak Doesn't Have All The Menus Listed?

Oct 19, 2010

consider reading this [URL]..Ubuntu-Tweak doesn't have the option Startup which includes Session Manager Session Control and few other options are not there. I am running the latest version available to download. I remember having all those menus in lucid. for a better difference comparison see the menus in the ubuntu tweak homepage [URL]..how can I get these option back. here is the error I get when I run Ubuntu Tweak from terminal

Ubuntu :: Firefox Loses Pull Down Menus And Right Click Menu?

May 18, 2010

I'm running 10.04 w/ Firefox 3.6.

Often, and esp after adding something with apt-get or Synaptics I find Firefox will lose the ability to display either pull down menus or a menu from a mouse's right button.

I've been doing some initial searches for a bug report on Launchpad (but it is unclear if it is being used to actively track bugs vs some other place).

My 'hit it with a hammer' approach to a fix, at least to this point, is to reinstall from the local store or cache, the application;

Status Filter
Firefox (in the Quick Search field)
Mark the existing Firefox for Reinstallation

No files get downloaded, but a restart of Firefox and 'tada'; menus return.

Software :: Bad Font In Firefox MENUS (only) In Gnome

Jul 3, 2010

Somehow I manged to mess up my firefox menu fonts.I'm running ubuntu 10.04, updated as of this posting's date.Please see the attached picture of FF (ugly, thin, menu font) alongside OpenOffice (normal menu font) on the same gnome desktop. Interestingly, FF looks little better on the screenshot than it does on my monitor. Something is seriously wrong.

Symptoms:It is only the FF menus that are affected, not the content of the pages that load, or the menu I get when I click on the window title bar (Maximise, Minimise .... Close)
No other applications are affected - all their menus are normal.
No other users are affected - their FF has normal menu fonts. So I am thinking it has to be some file in ~ that is messing this up.

I liked KDE3, but it seems that is history now, and KDE4 is not for me, so I moved to gnome. I am still getting used to it, but it's functional.All was well until I installed the KDE4 desktop, because I thought I'd "give it another try". I logged into KDE4 and ran it under my own username. I managed to open firefox, but that was about it. I logged out because although KDE4 is pretty, it's still useless for my needs.So I went back to gnome, and that's when the problem with FF first appeared.My mouse-pointer cursor has also changed. Instead of a "clockface" spinning when something is waiting, I now have two small circles orbiting an invisible point. No big deal, though it might be relevant.

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Cannot Open Filesystem Menus Like Save As

Mar 8, 2011

Whenever I want (for example) save a file from the internet with Firefox, I can't because Firefox does not open the "save as" window of Dolphin. Also, when I want to save my bookmarks in Firefox, I can't because Firefox can not open the "save as..." window.

There is no failure message, no crash, just nothing. Like as the request is simply ignored. Any Ideas what might be wrong in my system? The system is OpenSuse 11.3 64 Bit with KDE 4.6 and all current updates.

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Drop-down Menus Vanish When Scrolling Onto Them?

Aug 7, 2011

This is a problem I had in Ubuntu some years ago that just seemed to go away; sporadically I will want to select a website by positioning the cursor over the drop-down arrow to the right side of the url box- after the list is displayed it will vanish immediately when I attempt to position the cursor over it to make a selection. Minimizing then maximizing Firefox resolves it.

A minor problem yes - but it would be nice to not have to deal with it.

Ubuntu :: Flash With Firefox With A Certain Internet Site

Aug 24, 2010

At 1 of the computers I have a problem with a certain internet site. Maybe other sites give problems too, but I'm not aware of that. I get this problem with the following site [URL] At the other computers the site is interactive. Normally you could enter an address on the left and also place markers on the map at the right. On the other computers everything works fine. But on this certain computer, the site still indicates that it is loading, and nothing else happens.

I uninstalled flash, firefox, and java. I also remove the folders .mozilla, and .macromedia, restarted the computer, and installed firefox again. Then I installed macromedia flash and java. But when I started that certain site, the problem exists. At last, I installed Google Chromium. With this browser everything works fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Overrides Everything Under Fglrx - Menus Doesn't Show Anything

Ubuntu :: Firefox Never Connects To Site - Server Not Found

Mar 12, 2010

I'm new to Linux and I recently decided to try out Ubuntu. I used the Wubi installer so it's on Windows (just to see if I liked Ubuntu) and it works fine, but with one exception: the internet (or maybe just Firefox) isn't working. The internet connection worked just fine on XP. On Ubuntu, it says that it was able to connect to the wireless network, but when I try to go to any page on Firefox it just keeps trying to load perpetually and never connects to the site, eventually just showing the "Server not found" page.
