Topic: Fire Fox Browser Users, Help, Please

Hi Everyone

Because of a scrolling issue that google Chrome has never been able to fix, I switched over to Firefox which doesn't have that problem, but now Firefox doesn't show images - only writing. Same with going to websites such as SoundCloud - I have to LOOK for where to click now.

I think the problem is that I have Windows 10 S, and it isn't allowing me to download Firefox unless I switch to Windows 10 Pro which costs $125.00.

I guess what I need help with is:

1. Confirming that this is the problem

2. Your suggestions as to a browser (other than Chrome) which doesn't have scrolling issues.

Thanks!

Re: Fire Fox Browser Users, Help, Please

Bill I use Firefox and have never had an issue with it and have used it excursively. What ever form of windows you use, run cclearneer. It is the #1 download, and use the free version and not the paid. There is no difference in how it works and it will clean your Firefox and it will work on any site. Here is the download site to use:  https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner

The best site to download Firefox is :  https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/download/thanks/

If you have any other problem email me.

Wish it were that easy, my friend. I already run CCleaner and that doesn't fix the problem. Thanks anyway! smile

Hi Bill,  you might want to try ditching Windows S for vanilla Windows Home.... the S version does restrict installation of software to only those available on the Microsoft Store.

Despite the reference to "Surface Go" on this article, the steps to change the installed version of Windows 10 should be the same for all hardware.

As usual, I am available to talk you through it if you want.  Either way there should not be any need to pay for an upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, and the change to Home version is FREE !!     smile

Re: Fire Fox Browser Users, Help, Please

I tried FireFox for several months a few years ago, It worked okay, but they kept making changes to their interface so I spent too much time wondering "Where is it now?". They also bombarded my InBox with spam, so I packed it in and went to Chrome.

I use Mozilla Thunderbird for email and have never used any other for email.

Well, I followed the instructions on how to switch, but got as far as "activation", but there was no "go to store" option, so I stopped, Doug.

Here's the deal: My res on my screen is presently at 1766x1026. This is perfect for me to see all my desktop icons as well as the stuff at the bottom of the screen. It allows also for optimal gaming. Firefox completely mucks this up. I finally got back to Chrome with the above res settings and, except for that up-scrolling when I want to down-scroll, it's fine. Because it took both of us 30 minutes (trial &error) to get these settings back, I guess I'll just put up with the scroll thing.

Thanks anyway, Buddy.
