I have used firefox for a long time and had no problems. Now, all of a sudden when I open my bookmarks or hotmail they open a new window and not a tab. I never changed anything to make this happen it just started happening. I turned my computer on and restarted it but it didn't help. I already tried different things and then I went on firefox support and I read my problem on the forum and what I should do about it. (I have a mac) Someone said to go to about:config and then go to browser.link.open_newwindow and chage it to 3 but when I typed in about:config it says warning this could void your warranty do not go here unless you know what you're doing! Needless to say, I got scared and stopped!!

I am trying to open a group of tabs all at the same time. When I try to do so by clicking on the "Open All In Tabs" at the bottom of the folder, nothing happens. The Bookmark tab on the toolbar flickers but that's all.

How do I enable this function so I can open a group of tabs at the same time?

I am using FIREFOX 3.0.6 if that matters. Thanks in advance for the help.

It downloaded but I didn't know where to go from there. The latest version on my computer says it was last modified in 2009. I must be missing a step. I want to play Farmville on FB using the latest version as they suggested. On the old version I could get to FB but not Farmville. Kept saying I needed to enable 3rd party cookies. That blue dot was already clicked so I didn't know where to go from there. There wasn't a place that said accept. So I clueless what to do. Please help

I had a bar beneath the domain box and above my open window tabs on my work Firefox. It had ten, or so, buttons which directed me right to the websites I used most without having to type in the domain or go through a search engine. I came in to work two days ago to find it inexplicably gone. How do I get it back, and how do I prevent it from running off again?

Can this be accomplished? From the registry maybe...?
