This may well be more of a suggestion for implementation than a 'How do I?' but when a high number of tabs are open I would be very happy if I could right click delete/close individual listings from the alltabs-popup... Any thoughts?

I hit the "plus sign" to create a new tab to go to search a new page- for example google images- and it takes me to a random facebook page of someone I have never met, named Grant.

I am wondering if I should just delete mozilla and go to explorer or someone else.

I cant do my work. Thanks!

Rather than seeing just the small rounded light gray button around the "+" sign for a new tab, there is now a larger, dark grey rectangle (larger than the new button itself) over the "+" sign. When I hover, the rounded part of the button appears, but the larger gray box remains.

It's almost like I'd like to write a short {display: none !important}, but I'm new to Firebug, and can't figure out how to get the name of that part of the screen.

I have a screen shot which I'd like to add to this post, but having difficulty adding it in.

Thanks for your help.

I made a backup folder I saved just in case the folder is "Mozilla Firefox" that was in C:\Program Files (x86).

Hello,

I am currently working on a program where I need to get a handle to Firefox specific tabs. I know Firefox uses threading so it is going to be a little difficult. I researched that I may have to do an extension (since I am using C++) and do some binary component to be able to get them. I wanted to see if there was an easier way. Any help on this would be great!

Thanks!

When a link of a site is clicked with the mouse, or even on any part of a site is clicked, an unwanted site is opened in a new tab, before the required site is opened. In another words for every required site an additional site is also opened. Some times the same site is opened repeatedly, some times an old oped site is opened additionally. I have a paid Kasper-sky anti virus already installed. Also tried free Adware, and Malwarebites Antimalware, but the problems remain. It is creating an havoc. Kindly help solve the issue.

It doesnt matter were I click on the screen, it opens up a new tab. Most of the time it goes to Reimage website. I can click a link it opens a new tab for that link, but on the window i was using before it goes to another website or ad. I can be watching a video, and at some point it goes to a website with an ad on it. I've tried adding add-ons, changing the settings on the comptuer itself, doing that 'about:config' thing, unistalled it completely and reinstalled it. It still doesnt stop.

I havent been on any dodgy websites or installed anything i shouldnt have. It's literally a new computer, I may of got it last month, but becuase of all this, i've barely used it, prob less then 2 hours of web using. I need help :'(
