In Firefox 14 (Beta), after discovering New Tab Tools I decided to ditch Speed Dial and use the default new tab page. Didn't miss anything.

Yesterday, I upgraded to the FF15 beta and now when I click a link on the new tab page I can't go back to it. I need to open a new tab to go back to it, instead of being able to view a page, go back, and view another page. I tried looking in the about:config to see anything that could look remotely like an option to keep the new tab page in the back history, but I found nothing. Any way to fix this?

I also checked on Firefox UX, and it as that "feature" too. So it's not an add-ons problem, but instead a regression in Firefox.

Even when I highlighted in a seperate window that I want PDF open automatically with the PDF reader I always get this confirmation window to choose from. Is there a way to stop getting this confirmation window ? To perform a test I had with IE browser that by default selected PDF reader it does not ask me each time which option to choose from.

I noticed that the majority of sound comes out of the right sound when viewing videos with firefox. I checked with IE and non-browser audio like video games and video files and the sound balance is fine. What's weird is if I load a video, and quickly switch to a different tab, the audio balance is just fine. But if I stay on the video page while it loads, it'll be imbalanced. Anyone know what might be wrong? I'm on Windows 7 and updated to Firefox 15.

Ok lets say a youtube video is embedded on a forum or i'm on youtube.com when the video starts to play my up and down keys used for scrolling will only control the youtube players volume the page will no longer scroll (yes i know you have to click outside the video i have done that makes no difference) I have to go to a different tab and back to the page with the video in order to scroll like normal but if i have to restart the video or skip forward or backwards a little bit i have to switch tabs and back again to scroll.... Also if i close a page with a video playing or just switch tabs with the video playing whatever the video was showing last gets caught on the new tab i have to scroll up or down to clear it. So for example im watching a basketball clip showing a dunk i close the page when he is holding the rim that image goes over to the current tab that's open and i have to scroll to clear it that didn't happen before this whole scrolling issue. Main thing i want to fix is the scrolling tho..

Just updated to version 15. When I click a link that opens into a new window or tab, if it is a new window it loads fine but if it is a new tab it goes through the motions of loading but gives me a blank screen - although the tab header shows information relating to the new page. I have also used the 'Open All in Tabs' feature, and each page's info has loaded into the tab to its left, with the rightmost tab blank - although the tab preview shows the correct page information for each page.

I know Mozilla recently created a "feature" that had Firefox load only one tab/page from a previous session upon starting up, regardless of how many tabs/pages were open when Firefox was last closed. I want to reverse this, and have all tabs load simultaneously when Firefox is started up. Can anyone provide the about:config command I can use to revert to previous behavior?

I'm using version 15.0

- many thanks

Firefox keeps asking if I want to restore the previous session and this has been a problem since Firefox 4.

I have told Firefox to not save any history or cookies and also clear everything when Firefox closes, I have told it to show my homepage when Firefox is starting and I have tried deleting sessionstore.js. I use the following settings in about:config

browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo 0 browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo 0

browser.sessionstore.privacy_level 2 browser.sessionstore.privacy_level_deferred 2 browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash false

I'm currently using Firefox 15 beta with no add-ons on Windows Vista. Firefox sometimes doesn't ask if I want to restore the session, but only if I did close it from the drop down menu and not the x button. Firefox is closing properly.

Thanks in advance.
