Apple :: Firefox Scroll Lag

Aug 11, 2009

I got my first mac (mbp 13") and I love it, but I'm a firefox user. Everytime I do two finger scroll, the browser lags. Its pretty annoying.

Also when I'm typing fast, the browser can't display the text fast enough, and I'm not even a fast typer.

Dell :: HOW TO: ALPS Touchpad With Circle Scroll And Back And Forward In Firefox

Oct 12, 2008

I have been looking to make my alps pad better and with some info i found on here i was able to do just that. now i have "back/forward" slide gestures and circle scrolling, in firefox! this will also enables alot more things.

first of all thanks to fonduekid for letting us know of the new drivers.
and to SpotMe for the regedit info.

to start off go HERE, and download that driver.

Install, restart.

after windows restarts run regedit
with in that folder look for "UseCustomGUI"
double click and change the value data to "0"
close regedit

open mouse properties and you will have all the features unlocked. circle scrolling are within the dell tab and the back/forward is under gestures tab.

Unfortunately Alps still will not recognize Firefox. To be able to use the "back and forward" slide gesture you will have to go here and download a firefox addon called nightly tester tools.

once installed, with in firefox go to tools>addons and click on options for Nightly tester tools.

Apple :: How To Get ALL My Data From Firefox To Safari

Mar 9, 2009

how to get ALL my data from firefox to safari? (Passwords, History, Bookmarks, Cache...etc) I tried foxmarks but that doesn't bring all my data.

Usally when you start a new browser it ask you if you want to import any thing. But Safari 4 didn't. If I can't do this I will not switch, witch suck because I hear it's good.

Apple :: Lost My Firefox Bookmarks After Formatation

Jan 3, 2010

This afternoon, I erased the hard disk of my Macbook Pro 13'' with the idea that I had carefully saved all data on my external hard disk. After OSX Leopard was installed, I attempted to restore my Firefox profile to only find out that I had copied the wrong data to my external hard disk. Namely, the Firefox cache data instead of the profile itself.

The Firefox cache data can be found in 'user name' -> library -> caches -> Firefox -> Profiles, whereas I apparently should have copied the profile that can be found in 'user name' -> library -> application support -> Firefox -> Profile.

Now it seems that I didn't format the system properly as there are several files in the trash bin that I deleted before I erased the hard disk - even though I did erase the disk through the Disk Utility.

Therefore, I want to know whether there is any possibility to retrieve the profile that I need in order to restore my bookmarks/configuration for Firefox.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340, Win 7 And Firefox

Oct 17, 2009

I've been running Windows7 on my laptop for a good month now, or longer, and I've always had this issue with Firefox, it constantly crashes. I can't really reproduce it at will, but its often enough that in a one hour browsing session it can crash 2-3 times.

All drivers are up to date, Firefox is up to date...I run the same on my desktop and have never had an issue so it must be something specific.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Firefox Browsing Gets Slower

Feb 9, 2013

I have got a Latitude E6530 laptop with an Intel quad-core i7-3720QM CPU and 8 GB RAM.

The strange thing is when I use Firefox (with not more than 6 tabs) specially using gmail, after a while scrolling and browsing become very slow; even typing become slow. As I wrote the laptop is one of the latest generation. I can not realize where the issue could be.

Dell :: My Inspiron 1420 Can't Play Music & Browse Firefox

Oct 2, 2008

Everytime I open iTunes and play music while browsing Firefox, iTunes ALWAYS skips & crackles when the webpages are loading. CPU usage is very low and memory usage is usually at 1.15GB of 2GB. I tried changing the priority of itunes.exe to "realtime" but the problem still persists...

Anybody have any solutions? All I ask of my Dell is for it to play music while browsing the internet and it seems like it can't even do that...

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X31 - No Sound When Viewing YouTube On IE Or Firefox

Apr 18, 2014

I don't have any sound when viewing Youtube on IE or Firefox. I think it disappeared after a windows xp update (before the Microsoft cut-off date). I still get beeps from the X31 Thinkpad though, just no sound with Youtube or XP on start up for example. By the way Youtube is lagging too since the win xp update -it wasn't before though. I updated all the drivers for the X31 from your Lenovo site but to no avail. I have the latest Flash installed.

Installed Shockwave too Direct X installed - didn't make a difference I think its something to do with the windows xp update cause after that my Thinkpad got stuffed up, Youtube slowed and Soundmax drivers kept disappearing and reappearing. I tried the regedit trick for audio whereby you trick windows into thinking it's service pack 2 (I'm on service pack 3, XP). Also checked Device Manager under audio, no ! marks beside the audio. I tried CCleaner as well. I disabled the video accelerator under settings in Youtube video as well I don't have many 3rd party programs installed on the Thinkpad eg no iTunes, no Skype either.
