Question about Mozilla Firefox

"Find" highlighting broken

Lately, when I've tried using "Find" (ctrl+F) to locate words on various websites, the highlighting has been undependable. Sometimes it will highlight the first instance of the word, then not highlight any others, and sometimes it won't highlight any instances of the word at all. I can tell that it is still locating the words, because the page moves around in the usual way. It's just that the actual highlighting itself is missing.

I'm using Firefox 3.0.6 and Windows XP Pro.

Any ideas?

    Thank you for your advice, Undercut. When I looked up what version of Firefox I was using to add it to my problem, I realized that I had been upgraded from 3.0.4 to 3.0.6 without knowing it. I believe that is the root of the problem. I've experienced a few other issues (Screengrab! add-on not working) that started recently and may also be due to the upgrade. If I don't find a better option, I will go back to 3.0.4 tomorrow.

    For the record, I'm sure that it's not the resolution. Occasionally I can see that word that it just found for me, but the highlighting just isn't appearing. Firefox is usually so reliable. :(

    Hi Peapod. I'm not quite certain what you mean by "bullet." But I am certain that it is "broken." I am very familiar with this feature and how it usually functions. Thanks so much for your advice though! :)

Have you tried re-installing FireFox? If not, give that a go. Otherwise, you may be better off contacting Mozilla. Check your screen resolution too. Running a low res these days can sometimes mean webpages wont display properly on Firefox, and it will sometimes highlight the words even if they are out of the windows view range. Try pressing "Ctrl-" a few times to zoom out and get a better view, then try again to see if you can spot the green highlights.
Hope that helps.

http://download.cnet.com/internet-explorer/3000-2356_4-10497433.html Internet Explorer 9 is surprisingly competitive across the board. Zippy browsing speeds, minimalist layout, and innovative features make this not only the best version of IE to date, but will catapult Internet Explorer back into the browser wars. The one big drawback? You must have Windows 7 or Vista to use it. XP users are stuck on IE8. Forever.

I want to delete a program in my control panel. It won't let me. It says "close all web browsers". How do I do that?????? Wayne


Hello,
If all your internet windows appear closed, but the uninstall program is still complaining that they are open, you may have to kill the process. Press ctrl + alt + del. Select processes tab. scroll down the list and highlight and press end task on all that say iexplore.exe, firefox, chrome (if you use).

Microsoft front page


hi,
to be straight Microsoft Frontpage and Office 2003 is not the same. They do differ.
*. Microsoft frontpage is a web site building application. It is also called a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor. Using this you can build your own website and publish it in internet. It is fully loaded and various website solely use this a web-code generator. check this site for instance www.assammedicalcollege.org made with frontpage.
*. Microsoft office 2003 on the other hand comprises of a number of CDs'.
--In the 1st CD you have Microsoft word, Microsoft excel, Microsoft powerpoint, Microsoft Access, Microsoft outlook etc.
--- in the 2nd Cd you have Microsoft Frontpage.
-- In the 3rd you have Microsoft Visual Basic and Microsoft SQL probably.

Generally people install the 1st Cd with word, excel, powerpoint and access.

Hope it helps.
would be glad if this information is rated helpful.

regards
