I see this issue is widespread, but some of the "easy" fixes are for computer geeks only. I would like to know if anyone could tell me how to get rid of the welcome page without delving into the guts of my computer? I don't write software, and I'm not going to jump through hoops to try to get rid of this nuisance.

There has to be more people like me who look at some of these replies and think, "What?"...especially when we don't see what you're apparently seeing when you "walk us through" steps to correct this issue.

I feel Firefox should address this personally, since it's their update that screwed us all up. Supposedly, updates are supposed to get us "ready to enjoy the very latest in speed, flexibility and security"...yeah, okay. How about fixing this bug, Firefox??? Instead of making your users solve the issues for you. This is ridiculous.

If no one can help me solve this without me having to get a degree in computer science, can someone tell me how to get rid of the update altogether? I'll take my chances by NOT being "ready to enjoy the latest in speed, flexibility and security"...

I'm sorry for the frustration, but this is just unacceptable. We shouldn't have to go through this every time we update. Thanks for any help!

Sometime along the movement to FF 10, my tabs do not act as before. I load dozens of tabs at a time. 1- As I go from tab to tab, the next tab just beyond the right tab would show that I could just 'hit' on it and it would open. The tab after would also show a bit. Now I have to hit the right arrow, then 'hit' the tab to open. It increases my workload tremendously. 2- Along with '1' above if I 'hit' the left or right arrow, the tabs shoot across more than the width of the tab bar. I sometimes have to go back and fourth a few times to get where I was. It never was this "sensitive" or acted in this way.

When trying to access Live Chat, a message appears "There was an error checking the queue." I have seen this for quite some time so I know it is not an intermittent issue. A link appears underneath this message "You can try starting a chat session." When I click this I am brought to a blank page with the title "Leave A Message." What is going on? Even at the bottom of the Contact Us page there is mention of live chat under Technical support.

It's quite simple. I have a Canadian English dictionary installed on Firefox, but whenever I set it to that dictionary, it will be back to en-US when Firefox restarts. This did not used to be a problem, it kicked in only a month or so ago. Before then, it was permanently on en-CA.

I've seen a few questions on this site talking about all preferences not saving, which is not the case, and some talking about some preferences not saving if you have a user preferences file, which I don't. It's really just the dictionary thing. Any information to keep this switched to Canadian would be appreciated.

I came back to Firefox recently after trying to use Chrome for awhile. I was gratified by my return, except that in the update from v9 to v10, I found that one of my favorite keyboard shortcuts no longer worked as it had.

In v9 and previous, Ctrl-Shift-Click opened a link in a new tab and switched to it immediately. In v10, Ctrl-Shift-Click still opens the link in a new tab, but does not switch to it, even with Options: Tabs: When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately enabled.

When using the mouse method of opening a link in a new tab, it does switch to it immediately as expected.

I thought I was going to have to live with this (or not), but then found a bit of documentation noting that Ctrl-Click now provides the functionality I was used to.

Great! But on the other hand, backward compatibility with the old functionality would have spared me some temporary disappointment and some extra digging.

BTW, I note in another post several of the reasons why I came back to Firefox from Chrome.

I've had problems with the past 3 Firefox updates but this latest appears the worst. As of a couple hours ago, all websites are not loading correctly, to the point that I am unable to use the Firefox link to reinstall Firefox. I did run a full scan on my computer yesterday so I know it was OK as of about 6 PM, 2/14/12. Prior to 2 hours ago, I was having problem with only a few websites and had the same problem as with the past 2 updates---I am unable to use the adobe flash plugin. If I install the plugin, the links from email will not work--I cannot move from email to internet easily. I'm really losing patience with Firefox. This has been going on now for at least 6 months off and on, with most of the time not good. After looking below at the assumed browser and OS, I currently have no Adobe plugin for the above-mentioned reason.
