At times I run across an image that I want to "save" but it has a link attached to it, usually a link to the site's home page.

When the link is there I am not given an option to save the image, just options relating to the link.

How can I save such an image?

I have read a lot of threads, but I have not found that any help. I just reformatted my hard drive and installed FF4 fresh. . I open firefox to my homepage. No tabs opened at this point. If I right click on on the page to open a new link by opening a new tab, it stays on the current page and opens a new tab in the background. My problem is if I am on a page and I open a new tab by selecting a BOOKMARK, it switches to the new tab immediately. I want to stay on the current tab and have the bookmark tab open in a background tab. Any help? Thanks.

P.S. I have tried checking and unchecking "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately", I have tried safe mode, I have tried disabling all of the add-on's....nothing seems to work.

I have just upgraded from Firefox 3.6.x to Firefox 4. I had assumed that the new version would use the same settings as the previous one but it doesn't

The previous one always asked if I wante tabs saving when I closed it but this version (4) does not.

Is there a way of making it ask?

Sometimes my wifi connection is choppy (darn that microwave popcorn!) and I hate it when I'm in the middle of reading the links in Drudge and it reloads....sometimes shifting the layout a bit or just hanging while it waits for some adserver to respond.

Is there any way to stop this from happening? Tried Freezing the tab. And for some reason, firefox is not preventing this page from automatically reloading like it does others.

Any ideas?

When I try to access sites like www.xhamster.com or xvideos.com, somehow, it is always redirected to a different web site www.sedoparking.com. Could this be due to blocking of web site by service provider? This happened to all the computers in my home.

A user on my workstation uses Firefox and has visited a site that installed "Win 7 Internet Security 2011" on this machine. I successfully identified and removed the Trojan virus software. The browsers where neutralized by this virus and are inoperable. I created a new user account for this person. This user has been reinfected with the new account.

I want to find out where this user has been to identify where this Trojan virus is coming from. The only way I know how to do this is by reviewing the history log file to see where this person has been. I want to review the history location as the administrator of the machine; not use the infected user account. If there is a better way to do this outside of the infected user account, I am open to suggestions.

I use check point SSL network extender on my mac to access my company's VPN. Since upgrading to 4.0.1, I get the message "Please confirm the use of this Java applet and then refresh or reopen the window.

If you have already disapproved using this applet, you might need to restart your browser before attempting to connect again" I'll accept, refresh, wait, and then the message comes back. I never get through. I just uninstalled 4.0.1 and went back to 3.6.17 and it's working fine on the old version.

I went to play something on netflix and it said I needed to restart in 32 bit mode, so I clicked restart in 32 bit mode and all it did was exit firefox and reload everything.

I visit a few known intranet locations that do not have proper certificates installed; therefore, I receive the "This Connection is Untrusted" notice.

In 3.x versions of Firefox, I could click the "Add Exception" button to add an exception and continue to the site.

In 4.x versions of Firefox, the "Add Exception" button simply doesn't work. There is no way to add an exception from the "This Connection is Untrusted" screen.

Just recently Firefox started displaying websites (Yahoo, Youtube, and basically anything other than Wikipedia, Google, and Mozilla.com) incorrectly. The sites show up without any banners or formatting, everything appears like the page's site map. On Youtube videos won't play and just navigating on any page is impossible. Everything is just URL's, there is no real layout to the site anymore or buttons to click. Basically each site is just completely messed up. I've tried clearing all of my history including cache and re-installing Firefox.
