I have several tabs open in my Firefox (45.0.2) window (on a MacBook Pro 15 c2009 running El Capitan 10.11.3). After 24-48 hours of use, the spinning beachball shows up a lot. At some point Firefox crashes, and while the window goes away (and a crash report is submitted), Firefox does not shut down completely ... that is, the firefox icon still shows up as open on the dock, and if I try to Force Quit, it ignores my attempt. The only solution is to reboot my Mac.

I have had a problem with Trusteer Rapport in the past, but it doesn't seem to be the issue this time (I think).

The latest crash report id is UUID bef0db86-351d-4955-ae58-025412160415

Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks ...

Why does clicking a link open a new tab instead of using the current window?

Suddenly, Firefox is doing something new. When I'm browsing on Amazon, for instance, and I click on a product, it opens in a new tab, instead of staying on the current page. This is causing problems as (1) I now have WAY too many tabs open and (2) I can't use the back button, since each tab is "new." I prefer to look at a product, then click "back" to go back to the search page.

I have checked my preferences, and my tab preferences. I have restarted Firefox. I have restarted Firefox in safe mode with no add ons. I just want to be able to shop in ONE tab and not have six running tabs while browsing.

Firefox does not ask me to sign in when I first open it. I could be using it for up to half an hour before I am asked for a password. Password manager is obviously working as it lets me log in to secure sites such as online banking. This means that anyone could go into Firefox and access my bank account. This is a scary lapse of security.

okay, so sometimes firefox will freeze for a second, then when it unfreezes, firefox gets all "sticky" as in content from another tab will stick unless i highlight text or something activates, ect. Also, when I minimize it when it's like this, when I open it again, it's all white and I have to run my mouse over my tabs and favorites and do the things mentioned above to see even a tad of the website.

Yahoo.com is my opening page on Firefox. Yahoo has a list of news stories, etc. when I click any story it opens to a blank page. This started happening about two weeks ago. It could be a security setting not sure how to fix this. When I tried it on Safari it works fine, but I prefer using Firefox (obviously!)

Thank you, Charles

I have a web site that I maintain. The graphics will not display on a Windows 10 machine. On a windows 7 machine the web site works fine. The first time I tried to open it in Firefox the graphics would not display in Firefox. I had to modify the index.html file and then the graphics displayed. I did all the work on a Windows 7 machine. That was yesterday. Today I tried to open the website ion a Windows 10 machine and the graphics will not display.
