Why Does Firefox Re-emulate The Qwerty Keyboard Layout ?

I rearranged the keys on my laptop to dvorak with the exception of u, f, j and h (because j and f have backwards sockets). Then i set windows to use the dvorak layout. Excellent! It works. Now let's go browse the internet. Wt? Firefox uses the qwerty layout? Everything else in windows uses the layout windows specifies (which is dvorak). In short: firefox seems to emulate a qwerty keyboard rather than relying on windows for the keyboard layout. This is absolute retardation. Why isn't there a firefox plug-in that forces firefox to comply with windows' layout settings?

Edit :: never mind, this is retarded. Windows' layout feature is broken. The qwerty layout is used when i type in games, remote desktop, etc. Windows keyboard software emulation sucks. (Underline x100000000)

Video Lag In Firefox

Just as the post says, i try watching stuff, e.g. Youtube, and the video lags away from the sound. I press pause, the video then stops and then a second later the sound. Any patches or fixes out there. A link will do. Just don't understand why is only does it in firefox. Other videos that are on my hdd have no lag.

Firefox Untrusted Connection

What to do when firefox says "untrusted connection" on Im on firefox, my facebook has worked before , and a few minutes ago for the first time, i saw this message: "this connection is untrusted, you have asked firefox to connect, securely to login., but we can't confirm that your connection is secure. Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue. " Ive tried logging in like 5 times, and this always keeps popping up!

Thunderbird, Firefox, And Other Programs Sometimes Freezes

I'm not very good with hardware - but here it is:

1) a few months ago my desktop computer fan was giving me problems, making 'motor' like loud noises as if it were hitting some other hardware. I sent it to my service centre and they changed the fan and all was fine. 2) meanwhile i moved over my work to my laptopl, . But used my desktop every once in a while. Now my laptop has gone bust (!) And i have moved over my work to my desktop and using it more often. However, there has been an issue which i noticed since it came back from the service centre. Some programs 'freeze' or 'hang' randomly for a few seconds and come back to life after. I mainly use thunderbird and firefox. And these softwares are hanging once in a while. My desktop has been on all day, and this is what has happened:

* Initially i thought this was a software problem. I couldnt figure it out. So i decided to start fresh. We reinstalled windows (on my c: partition). * However, that didn't help. In fact, i've been downloading avg and spybot and firefox and thunderbird, and installed a few other applications like my dvd writer software. Now, this 'hanging' problem is happening too regularly. I'm using firefox for example, and as i am typing this post, my firefox froze twice. For about 5 seconds each time. I am now using notepad to finish typing this message before i pasted it back in to the devshed box and post this out. Basically, this 'freezing' problem is happening much more regularly making the computer unusable (or at least firefox and thunderbird). I've tried using photoshop and it froze too, some time back (i haven't worked on photoshop in the past day but i'm pretty sure this is nothing to do with software. Especially since i reinstalled windows). Therefore, it should be a hardware problem. Does anyone have any recommendations on where i could start? Could this be a memory problem? Or possibly the new fan?

Transfer Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks

How do i transfer my mozilla firefox bookmarks from one computer to another? I just bought a new computer, and downloaded my favorite browser, mozilla firefox. My main computer is still set up and connected to the internet. Is there an easy way to transfer all of my bookmarks from the browser in the old computer to the browser in the new computer? I was thinking of visiting each web page, pasting the links into a word document, and mailing it to myself, but that just seems tedious. Is there an easier way?

Flash Player Installation For Firefox

I first went to adobe's website to install flash player but instead it installs adobe download manager (dlm) which really seems to be useless. I've tried going back to youtube to see if i can actually watch a video but it says i need flash player also. They all end up taking me to here: http://get. but then it won't install automatically and it says there are missing plugins, but then fails to find any for me. An important thing to note is i already had flash player installed before this mess. Youtube i think was just trying to get me to update flash player but now i've uninstalled the original flash player and have tried to reinstall it since then. Adobe download manager is the only thing that i've been able to reinstall so far. What is going on? Since when is flash player this hard to install? Are there any suggestions on what to do?

Flv ( Flash Video ) Lag On Firefox

Youtube video or any flv (flash video) are not fluid on firefox. They were not on firefox 3. 0, neither on 3. 5 . What's causing that problem ? Firefox is so badly coded ?

Basically, i love firefox for the great addons community that enable us to customize it any way we want to. But having to use ietab every time i want to peacefully watch in a non-choppy way some flash video is boring. I'd like to rely on only one browser to do all my activities. If any solution exist, i'm listening to you. (And it should be set by default on ff) by the way, if i start firefox and watch right after a flash video, it seems to be fluid, however, after 10 mins, if i try to watch another video (or the same) it will be choppy)

I don't want my fingers to feel cramped. I was also wondering how much smaller the screen is. Are items on the screen actually smaller or do you just have to scroll around the window?

Intermittent Keyboard Problem - Keyboard Is Non Responsive

I bought a compaq presario sr1630nx a few months ago and i've noticed an intermittent keyboard problem for the last month or so. I don't know if it's a hardware or a software problem or how i would tell. The keyboard has a ps/2 connector. I have not changed any of the default hardware. Symptoms: i sometimes try to type and no keys on the keyboard do anything. The mouse works fine. I am not aware of performing any particular action before i notice that the keyboard is non-responsive.

Rebooting makes the keyboard work again. This problem occurs with a frequency of 2 times a day to once a week. I've installed more recent keyboard/mouse drivers for this machine (posted on the compaq site), but that's hasn't helped. Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be? Is there a utility that i could run when the problem happens that would give me more information?

Looking For New Keyboard

Looking for new keyboard. As an old-school computer user, i have always used these old clackety clack keyboards. Either scavenged old keyboards or newer ones based on old technology. (At the moment i use keytronic kt1000, great keyboard) reason is simple, i can press almost unlimited number of keys at the same time, no matter what the combination. When keyboards at first started "evolve in technology" to smaller and lighter ones, the ability to press multiple keys was lost or at-least it was limited to certain combinations. Is it still this case in nowadays? (I haven't followed the evolution of keyboards, really) while my trusty keytronic is still functional, there is a thing that i would like to have: back-lighted keys. This would be so handy when playing in the dark whenever you suddenly loose "the feel" where the keys and your fingers are!

But this pressing multiple keys is a question mark. Being able to press any keys at the same time in any combination is important for me as a gamer. One thing though, macro keys are not needed. Never felt the need for them with my old keyboards, and most likely they will remain unused in possible new ones, so personally i would like to not have them at all, they would just make the keyboard bigger.

How Much Would You Pay For A Keyboard ?

I am considering getting a razor lycossa mirror gaming keyboard which is more or less in my budget, now i never knew a keyboard could cost so much until i saw the price on their tarantula keyboards. All this because i recently (yes just recently) added a blue cathode tube to my antec 902 & now i want a keyboard which glows in the dark to go with it so i can sit here, play in the dark & enjoy my master peice. Would you pay almost $100 for a gaming keyboard or is $80 more then enough?
