Since the inception of the home computer I have always used Internet Explorer. I decided to download Firefox and I am very confused as to how I need to set it up and can use some really good expert help. I have tried doing this for many years with no success. Can someone help me out configuring Firefox for me? I also have many other questions and I really need guidance.

Thanks, Gary

I changed a Firefox setting several months ago that no longer allows me to click and open the link in on that tab. I now have to right click and open link in a new tab. I cannot find anywhere to change the setting back. I find no settings for links. Where can I change the setting back so that I can click and open links without going to another tab?

this just started today.

i've followed every single step on the support with no change. -i've updated to firefox 10 -i've cleared both caches 10 times, also used third party programs and manually after that did not work. no change. -i've tested the font size (it's where it should be) -tested java script (it is on) -tested zoom. When zooming in or out the page fixes itself and goes centered, but when at the default zoom, the site is left justified instead of centered.

i would really appreciate some help here. bad enough firefox crashes enough for other reasons, but now that the number one page i go to on a daily basis isn't working right it's basically enough reason to leave for good.

The selections below my drop-down menus keep blacking out - for example, I'll click on my Bookmarks list, and as I try to scroll through the bookmarks, every selection blacks out so that you can't actually see the bookmarks except for the one at which the mouse is currently pointing. This occurs with all drop-down activities, including when dropping down from the orange Firefox button and working through those menu selections. Also, when scrolling, I can only use the scroll wheel on my mouse, I'm unable to use the mouse arrow to click on the scroll up/down bar on the right of the screen.

The list of search engines on Firefox installed under Windows 7 (on 2 different systems) does not match the list of defaults shown in the Firefox help, specifically it does not include Yahoo but instead includes yahoo.co.uk. When I look at the list of available search engines I cannot find either Yahoo itself (US) or Yahoo!7 (Australia) so I can select one of them. I really want to use Yahoo!7 (Australia) not yahoo.co.uk. By the way, the same release of Firefox (10.0.2) installed under Windows XP *does* include Yahoo, and if I select it as my search engine, the searches are performed not on Yahoo itself (that is, US) but on Yahoo!7 (that is, Australia)
