Over the past couple of weeks of using firefox 4, I have had the annoying problem of tabs opening after I have closed them.

Ex: I go to two sites (cnn.com and abc.com). I close the cnn one and continue on my way. Some time later (seconds to minutes), it opens back up again.

or

I go to two sites (as mentioned previously. I close the cnn tab, but a few seconds or minutes later the tab that I am CURRENTLY on (the abc.com tab) will redirect back to that cnn.com page.

Both of these have been happening on and off for some time now, and it is getting real annoying. I tried looking up the answer and found someone talking about deleting sessionstore.js or something but I could not find it in about:config.

At first launch of firefox, to a site behind our proxy, the request for credentials still pops up. It only happens once, and then doesn't come back, but we don't give proxy access to everyone, and don't want it popping up at all unless they need it. I've removed as many auto update preferences as I could find, but it still happens. We connect to the proxy using an autoconfig script. We are working with thin clients so I don't have the ability to just upgrade software. But I can change the preferences at will.

I've lost features that I had and used frequently. I tried to get info and found suggestion that customizing toolbar by dragging buttons/icons to toolbar would work. I did that for Refresh. Stop, Print, and Home, but the Stop and Refresh don't work. I've lost the down-arrow that was next to the Forward and Back buttons; the down-arrow at right side of URL bar does not take the place of the arrow I've lost. I've found statements from others who do not like the new version and want to go back to previous version, BUT THERE WAS NO INFO ON HOW TO RETURN TO 3.6.?

I'm using Ubuntu. I can't find how to install the new Firefox, although I have downloaded and unpacked the updated version. There is no obvious "install" option. I also don't seem to have an applications folder, the downloaded version is located in Downloads at present, please advise as I'd like to try the latest Firefox. Currently using Firefox v 3.6.17 although I have downloaded ~"A Web Browser" trying to resolved the prob, no difference. Thanks.

I've recently updated the Firefox to version 5 with Update Manager. After starting Firefox I found out, that it is still version 4.0.1, even if Synaptic Package Manager shows 5.0 Recently I found out, that the old FF4.0.1 is in the directory /opt/firefox, and the new FF 5.0 is in /usr/lib/firefox. All starting icons are linked to the old one. How can I uninstall the FF 4 and update the icons?

I changed email address and don't have access to the other mailbox (domain expired, got nabbed by another person).

I requested a "password reset", yet mozilla's waiting for this confirmation. I remembered my password, but can't send this confirmation now.

I just wonder if there's a way that I could cancel this confirmation?

I"m trying to find my "applications" to go to the scan feature, among other things. It seems to have disappeared. I went to " help" but they're talking about a top and bottom bar. I don't have a bottom bar and the catagories on the bar on the side are not useful to me.

Thanks for any help you can give.

I have been trying in vain for over one hour to access information about the minimum hardware requirements for Firefox 3.6.20, to which I have upgraded today. Why do you make it so hard to find such information from your support page?

I am running this version on an old 450-MHz AMD K6-III+ system that is packed to capacity with 384 MiB of RAM, although from what I gathered from the page I accessed immediately before the upgrade, all software requirements have been met; I am running it on the openSUSE 10.2 platform. I have reason to suspect that this version of Firefox handles memory badly, causing some of my JavaScript applications to behave badly, although these applications work correctly in older versions such as 3.5, and in Opera 10.
