My problem just started today. I seem to have picked up some pop-ups one of them involving "trackjumpclick.com" another one tells me that my Java version is not up to date. I updated Java and still get this message. Any ideas on how to get rid of these things? Thanks in advance for any help.

I am using a laptop running Win 8, and I ALWAYS want to open Comcast with Firefox, which I set up to be my default browser. But after creating a shortcut icon to the Comcast URL on Firefox, Comcast still opens with IE. I can't find where anyone else has reported this exact same problem, which is very frustrating. Please help!

Thanks,

Barry

Downloaded the update to FF 33.1.1 only to find the TAB bar is now at the top rather than the bottom under my bookmarks.

Tried the solution I have used in the past... about:config / tabs / browser.tabs.onTop but the 'browser.tabs.onTop' isn't listed for me to be able to change to 'false'

In the past when I have done that the tabs revert to my favoured position but not with the new release of FF 33.1.1.

Can anyone suggest a solution ?

(I do wish that when updating Firefox would not interfere with the users previous settings or if thats too difficult for them, make it easy so you could just 'drag' all the toolbars, tabs bars etc etc into the position you want them)

Can you add a totally new functionality, which would be similar to email spam. If I get to a website I don't ever want to see in any of my searches or anything I would just click WEBSPAM button and the site is gone from my web viewing experience. It is sort of an opposite of favorites or bookmarks. Negative bookmarks could be a good concept name.

So again, the negative bookmark site would not show in any of my searches. The idea is to make this simple. A one click solution.

Hello, for a while now, before opening a pdf document, I reach a dark page where I have to click to activate the Adobe Acrobat plugin. I have Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 9.5.5 and I know that it is outdated, however, upgrading to 10 or 11 is not an option due to Acrobat 10 and 11 not being compatible with our enterprise systems. I get black screens whenever I try to view pdf in Firefox and I have to click on them to view pdf. Whether I am running in XP, Windows 7 or 8, it doesn't much matter. How do I disable the warning about acrobat and how do I get the plugin to stay activated?

Any suggestion as how to disable the warnings and vulnerability screens or to update the plugin without installing Adobe Reader? Thank you

Several sites have videos that start up whenever you visit whether you want to see them or not ...most are ads. Whenever I go to any site that does this my computer gets to a point that my mouse jumps all over the place and it slows to a point of not being able to use it, I have to go to task manager to stop it ....then it starts right back up when I change the page. It is always the plug -in container and if left to run the memory just goes higher and higher. I would like to just turn it off at this point, it makes my pc pretty much useless. It has something to do with the adobe flash player and I have updated it more than once but still no luck. The guesses look about right about os etc.

the tab x deletion needs to be moved away from the tab addition plus. If you get in a hurry you can wind up deleting the tab you wanted open because that is where you are working and that can be very very bad. This really isn't a question for the community, but I couldn't manage to send a message to Firefox. Hopefully someone passes this on. And I don't want any comments about slowing down. That won't happen.
