Requirement: On click of button, I want the browser window to be closed.

Solution: I am calling below java script on "onClick()" event of button.

function close_window() { window.close() }

This works in internet explorer but not in Mozilla Firefox. What is the reason behind it. Is there any way out to close the browser window in Mozilla Firefox?

hw acer atom cpu n270 1,6ghz 1gbram

sw os microsoft xp sp3 v2002 ff v16.0.2 (not upgradable not to v18 nor v20) several plugins (few classics, see below) and addtional components (noscript, etc.)

problems 1)can't upgrade from v16 to v18 or any other higher version; downloading and installing v18 and restarting ff does not make any change, if not resetting all options and settings; i've tried several times within months; 2) although automatic check of new versions is unticked, at launching it often starts in default modus (all resets, history deleted, default starting page, etc.) as if made an autonomous upgrade/renewal to a higher version;

couldn't find any literature or contribution, if not the one of v12-13 for xp sp1 or 2;

theory could it be that ff 16.0.2 is the real last working version for ms xp sp3?

solution what are the solutions? if above mentioned theory is true, what can i do? at what stage is ff OS?

thanks to all foxes

I'm trying to play an audio clip on a website. The site shows that the clip is playing, but I have no sound. My speakers are on and none of my volume mixers are muted. I played a clip from a different website and had sound. I spoke with Customer Service for the website where I'm not getting sound, and they tried playing the same clip on their computer, using Firefox, and it played the sound. I also tried playing a different clip on the same website, but again didn't have sound.

I'm using Firefox 16.0.2 on Windows XP

The issue of occasionally getting a redirect to "wyciwyg://(number)/http://(regular URL)" in the Firefox address bar, when trying to return to some previously visited sites, has NOT been fixed.

  NONE of the previously entered alleged fixes, are fixes, or they would work for me, and they do not. A "fix", would fix it, period! 
  My workaround: simply highlight the part preceding the correct protocol and URL, delete it, and the remaining address works.
  But no Mozilla coders have come up with a way to absolutely PREVENT this from occurring. And it is very disconcerting. Others had it happen for different but specific addresses for them, I have had it only for trying to return to my yahoo.com email address by any of several methods. I have tried EVERY suggestion posted. It happens on two different computers running Win7: Pro32bit purchased retail, and Home64bit on a "stock" Dell laptop. I also experienced it on an XP Pro computer decommissioned last year.

A dramatic reduction in performance (especially tab switching performance) is experienced on when hardware acceleration is enabled in the settings menu.

System info: Laptop - Win7x64Pro - Core i7-372QM - Mem: 16GB - Storage: RAID0 Intel 330 SSDs with 750MB/sec sustained read. In other words, this is a screaming fast laptop.

I've disabled a variety of plugins such as FireBug. These don't make much of a difference. The only thing that changes tab switching performance noticeably it is disabling hardware acceleration. Found this solution here: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/787024 : "Discovered that disabling hardware acceleration resolved all the remaining issues..."

This is a massive performance hit. I suspect that this has been the same issue across all my PCs (some laptops, some desktops, some gaming desktops, some integrated graphics, some dedicated graphics, various addons enabled, various versions of FF installed... all fast computers with high RAM and screaming fast SSDs and they have all been experiencing slow tab switching, especially after getting 10+ tabs open, but even with just two open).

Hi there,

I have a drop down selection menu (<select></select>) on my website that triggers an ajax function to display a specific table using jquery's datatable. Prior to firefox 16, the selection menu worked fine. I clicked on the menu, and the options showed up. However, ever since I upgraded to firefox16, the selection menu doesn't work as expected anymore :S

Here's the thing, first time I clicked on an option, selection menu expanded, and I can click on any option to trigger the table change function. Everything is working fine till that point.

It's when I clicked on the selection menu the second time, the selection menu stopped working. It didn't even expand and show any options. I checked with firebug (No js error). I tried safemode/hardware acceleration option I read from another thread, it doesn't work either.

I checked with the firebug console log and I noticed the click event was being triggered whenever I clicked on it, but my selection menu somehow just won't expand (The options are in the html). I checked with all the other browsers as well, and everything seems to be fine (Even the previous version of FF).

Strangely enough, when I click on any other elements on the website and then go back to clicking that selection menu, the selection menu seems to have reset to my 1st step's state. (It stopped expanding as soon as I chose an option though and I will have to click on another element again.)

I have an insidious homepage that I cannot get rid of. It is called findwide. I have tried to contact their website but emails always comeback. Cannot deliver. I have searched the web but nothing seems to come up. I was using WaterFox and I thought it was part of the problem. It wasn't. I have tried to use every method to get rid of this insidious homepage but nothing works. I need help. I was able to get rid of it in Internet Explorer but not FireFox.
