Mozilla has reduced functionality

Postby surfboardfiller » Wed 08.06.2011, 23:42

My Mozilla browser has lost the back and forward functions and there is no address in the http address field. Never seen this problem before.

I turned off the plug ins for AVG and Java but its not helped. Any one experienced this before? or got a solution?

Cheers,

Phil

Phil,

Are you running Firefox 3.6.17 4.0.0 or 4.0.1 ?

I was having so many problems with the add-ons on V4 (not working, or needing to re-install evey time i turned it on), that i went back to V3.6.17 (the last of V3) and havent had any problems.
That said, I haven't tried the 4.0.1 - maybe it fixed the problems?

View > Toolbars > Navigation Bar
You may need to hit the Alt key if File Edit View etc. aren't visible

My solution was slightly more drastic. Moved to Chrome :lol: Much better experience all round.

I went there and then went back as I wanted a browser rather than a 'lifestyle' hence the reason I don't buy Mac. :wink:


I am running 3.6.8 Bizzarly my functionality has come back! Probably not long before it goes again. It happened whilst I was on a flash heavy sight so maybe that is to be avoided. :?

Saska, the navigation bar is there it just didn't work, even the menu stopped working (greyed out)

Thanks for your help Mr P
