Was having script errors using IE8. SmugMug recommended I try Firefox. The script errors have stopped, but is very slow to respond to clicks compared to IE8.

On a screen that has pick lists. In IE8 they open fully imediatley. But in Firefox the response is very slow and the pick lists open almost in a jerky fashion.

Also when starting Firefox for the first time I was offered and accepted the option to import IE's bookmarks and such. I let it run for 20 min. then a script error dialog box came up:

Warning: Unresponsive script A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. Script:resource:///components/nsPlacesExpiration.js:632

I elected to Stop it. It importing continued until Firefox came up. But guess what; no IE Bookmarks were imported. I have a barebones, no addons Firefox running. And like I said, it is very, very slow.

When I click onto the Mozilla Firefox icon and open the browser up, it doesn't automatically connect to the online server. Instead, a message appears that it is in offline mode. If I want to go online, I am instructed to click a "Retry" button. This then initiates the online mode. It doesn't happen all the time but most often first thing in the morning and/or if Firefox has not been opened for a few hours. Is there something I need to change in the Firefox Preferences under Network/Connection/ Settings?

I reinstalled firefox recently and now every time I click a link it opens in a new tab instead of in the same tab. I would rather change it so it opens in a new tab only if I tell it to but for some reason that option is no longer in the options tab. How do I disable this function in the newer firefox?

I send 1000 or more faxes at a time. I have a Dell desktop and I use a Robotics 56K external modem.

When i try to end a fax the fax "monitor" reads 'no dial tone" for the receiving fax yet when I pick up a non fax line phone, I get a dial tone.

I enter a large group of numbers and set a time to fax and all the numbers come up no dial tone. The Windows XP fax program has been malfunction in one way or the other almost since day one. I need a program that is free (no ads) that WORKS. I do not use emails when faxing. I fax 3 or 4 pages to each fax number.

I am faxing press releases to all 3700 newspapers in the country from time to time.

I've seen a few posts about the AVG 2012 Search, but none match what I'm looking for.

My homepage is set to google.ca, and my quick search toolbar is set to google as well with all other search engines removed.

I didn't have this problem before until yesterday when I formatted my computer and re-installed everything.

If I type in the address bar terms to search, hit enter, it use to come up with a Google results page. Now when I type up there, hit enter I get an AVG secure search page powered by Google, and the address bar icon changes from a Google logo to AVG.

Only if I type in the address bar. When I open a new tab the cursor always defaults into the address window not the google search page so, always forget to click into the google page and type. In any case, if I search with the google search bar or on the google webpage it's fine, it's just if I type in the address bar and hit enter that I get this http://isearch.avg.com page.

Anyway to switch it back to google?

My home page is just www.google.com with a search box and a picture of some planets as a background from my computer. While I was dragging the restored down browser window, I slipped with my mouse and now I have a light gray two inch bar across the top of my background picture. It's below the; Search-Images-YouTube-News-Gmail-More icons. When I right click on it and select inspect Element (Q) it says div#gbx1.gbqfh in three different colors. I would like to get rid of it, but I don't know if it's a google or Mozilla issue. I know google has been changing things so it wouldn't surprise me if it was just a coincidence.

When I close Firefox, the process doesn't end unless I open task manager and do so manually. Additionally, sometimes the webpages won't load unless I close (and again, end the process) and restart it.

I can't for the life of me figure out what's going on. I tried reinstalling, rebooting my computer a few times, and the problem persists.

On YouTube and other Flash based video sites, Flash drops a huge number of frames, making playback very choppy even with the smallest resolution (360, 480). This doesn't happen with IE, not even while using the highest resolution (720, 1080) available. I know my computer is more than powerful enough to play back full HD, even without hardware acceleration. Is this Firefox's fault or Flashes and is there anything I can do about it?

I normally keep about 8 tabs open all the time. Today, as I was send a birthday greeting on Facebook, all of the tabs closed without Firefox crashing. Now I cannot get the tabs to reopen even when I close Firefox and reopen it. How can I restore what was there when this happened? I think it has something to do with Tab Groups, but I'm not sure.

Hi there,

I am looking for some help. I am running FireFox 10 (Latest Build). Each time I go onto a website the requires Flash, I download it from the adobe website and I can see the content on the page, GREAT! But when I close FireFox and reopen it and go to the same website, the Plug in "Lego brick" is back and says, can you download the Flash Plug-in for the content to be seen. What am I doing wrong, Why is FireFox not keeping the plug-in in it's memory. I am not having any problems with any other browser but I am a FireFox Girl!!!

Just for info I am running:- Windows 7: 64bit FireFox: 10.0.1 Flash: 11.1.102.55

Thank you Jaki
