So they have locked the thread that relates to this question, on the spurious grounds that FF13 has a new new tab interface. But that new interface actually prevents you getting your homepage in a new tab. I used to use New Tab Homepage add-on, but that hasn't worked for several versions. So I then used NewTabUrl, but now they have decided to break that.

I am thoroughly fed up with firefox continually making me re-learn the interface of my browser every couple of weeks. I have more important things to do than spend hours trying to fathom what some vacuous 'designer' now thinks is a really cute way for me to get to where I want to go.

All I want is a new tab to give me the page of my choice, not some ridiculous irrelevant algorithm devised in a conference room with too many whiteboards and not enough common sense.

Anytime I want to view a video from within Firefox (YouTube or other) I am not able to view it. With YouTube I get the message "Error occurred. Please try again later." Other videos just give a blank page. I checked my plugins, they are all up to date. I am using Firefox version 13.0.1. I don't have this problem when I use other browsers such as IE. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello

I want to configure firefox 14.0.1 with default settings for all my users using a file mozilla.cfg But the command defaultPref () is not valid. I use pref () but then the user can not change the parameters

With Thunderbird 14.0, I have no problem, the command defautPref () can be used

Why?

Firefox just updated itself to version 16.0.1. Now, when attempting to close multiple tabs, I get the "Confirm close" warning even though the "Warn me when closing multiple tabs" option is unchecked. I tried checking that option, confirming the change, then unchecking that option again & confirming the 2nd change, too. This has made no difference. Firefox is not obeying the option setting.

The problem didn't occur before the update to 16.0.1 but did occur in the first session afterwards & has persisted since.

I have tried all options under tools options advanced update and NONE of them disable automatic updates. Whichever one is selected, at some point Firefox will upgrade without getting user approval, which is complete and utter crap.

I have to maintain an application which must run on Firefox version 3.6, cannot be ported to any later version, and is only used to access the control application.

I'm sick and tired of having to uninstall and reinstall Firefox every time it goes in direct violation of my settings and updates itself automatically. Why even have a setting for this if hte setting is completely ineffectual?

Why is it that now for every new FF update a feature is removed?

With the latest release I can no longer "hover over" a link with my pointer to see what URL it is going to.

This is a very important feature and should never have been removed.

To FF programmers, STOP removing features! Please!

Hi Friends, I was just updated to 14.0.1 a day or 2 ago. It seems the icons on my navigation toolbar, which used to be black, have been changed to white w/black border.

What annoys me most of all, is why in the world do you waste your time on things like that.

But the most immediate problem is that some of the icons that I have on that navigation toolbar, cannot be seen against the Persona that I use. Apparently they use some transparency. The ones that are solid white, I can still see, but those with apparently a little transparency seem to have disappeared (except on mouseover, I do see a white square).

So my question is, do I have any control over those icons? Or will my only solution be to change the persona to a darker background?

Thanks for your help :-)
