With Thunderbird 14.0, I have no problem, the command defautPref () can be used

Why?

Almost every time I open a new window, a little toolbar pops up that tells me ,"Firefox " has blocked this site! It gives me the option to "ALLOW". When I click on "ALLOW" , the site will open. I have the pop-up blocker turned off, so why does Firefox keep blocking me??? It is very frustrating!

When I play flash games on facebook, I notice after a few minutes that my computer seems to get slow and continues to be. When I looked at the Task Manager, plugin-container.exe is using up to 1.2gb of my memory. For example, the moment I no longer have Castleville running, it drops to about 40mb, which is alot more acceptable.

Before in version 10 of Firefox I could disable the plugin-container but now the option seems to disappear in version 11. Please help, I wish to disable it so my computer can run normally. It's crazy that I can't just have only one tab open, to play Castleville for 5 minutes before it gets a little bogged down.

I've tried the suggestions for [[High memory usage|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/High%20memory%20usage]] , but it hasn't helped or already done that before reading. My Flash is up to date (11.2.202.233), Firefox is 11.0.

Any help would be appreciated to disable/ limit the plugin-container.

Since I just updated to firefox 13, I can no longer customize where a new tab opens, thanks to the new 'new tab page' feature. I've had my new tabs open to my home page for years now, it's how I'm accustomed to it, and it's frustrating that I now have spent so much time trying to work around this new 'convenience'. Just to clarify: I would like my new tabs to open to my home page. not a blank page, and not frequently visited tabs page.

OK. I really liked the new-tab page Firefox came up with, then my brother downloaded Yahoo crap and I uninstalled it. The problem I have is that whenever I open a new tab, it still opens a yahoo search page. I looked everywhere online for information to get my new-tab page back, but all I found was how to get rid of it.

I'm not a computer person, so when they say 'open Firefox and type ___________.' I have no idea what they are talking about. To top it off, there is no little box in the upper right corner to click like all the help sites say. It's just a regular yahoo search page, and it's driving me nuts. I've looked about the web all day off and on for this. At this point, I'd be happy with figuring out how to get a blank page, but I don't know how to get to where I'm suppose to type 'about:blank' to do it.

I tried uninstalling Firefox and then installing it again too, thinking that it might reset things. It didn't. I still see yahoo. I hope you can help. I really miss my new-tab page.

I fail to understand the difference between auto scrolling and smooth scrolling. I have some issues with the scrolling experience on Firefox but I think it improved today and felt happy. Then I read that enable smooth scrolling by default has been changed on Aurora recently. But failed to understand the difference between smooth scrolling and auto scrolling. I find scrolling in Chrome and Safari to be very aesthetic and nice but never found the above two scrolling types in them.
