Per your support page:

https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Opening%20PDF%20files%20within%20Firefox?s=pdf&as=s

it says that for Macs with Intel processors, the Firefox PDF Plugin extension can be used to view PDFs inside Firefox. However when you try to install this plugin on any 5+ version, it shows up as incompatible.

When I accessed a "https" on Safari, I was never warned that I had requested a page containing unencrypted information.

Why does Foxfire warn me when ... on a supposedly secure link with Bank of America? Why does it say that info I enter can easily be read by 3rd parties? Bank of America thinks my contact with them is secure. Thank you, ...

I have recently submitted a query because I was unable to uninstall Butterscotch toolbar. I had tried all the usual ways but to no avail, however, I have now resolved the problem. I use AVG 2011 antivirus software and found the ofending files in C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG10\Toolbar\Firefox\avg@igeared\chrome\content\libs where there were 2 files include.js and include_lite.js. There was also a Toolbar.old\Firefox\avg@igeared\chrome\content\libs containing the same two file names. I deleted the Toolbar folder and rename Toolbar.old as Toolbar and the problem disapeared. I don't know why, you are the experts, but it may help others with the same problem.

In the past, when I had multiple tabs open in the browser it used to ask if I wanted firefox to remember them when I would quit. Now, it doesn't ask that anymore. If I have multiple tabs open and I quit it just closes and when I reopen firefox they're all gone with only one tab showing the home page. Under preferences I still have the box checked to warn me when closing multiple tabs. How can I get firefox to remember what tabs I had opened up? Sometimes I want to shut down my laptop but if I close firefox then I'll loose any tabs I still need to use.
