Old tabs keep appearing above the location/address bar with the same old content in them even though I have tried everything to remove them.

How can I remove these old tabs with content I am not interested in?

I have a MacBook Pro and I have followed every instruction provided by Mozilla and from Google searches.

How do I prevent Firefox from updating itself if it is going to disable one or more add-ons which are critical for me?

I am running Firefox 19.0.2 on Windows XP (SP3). As a part of my KASPERSKY INTERNET Security 2013 the following add-ons (all version 13.0.1.4250) are installed (a) Kaspersky URL Advisor (b) Content Blocker (c) Safe money and (d) Virtual keyboard . They were all enabled and active when the KIS was installed on 17-2-2013 but a subsequent update of Firefox has disabled them all. I want that Firefox should update itself only if all the existing add-ons are compatible with it, else the existing version should continue unchanged. How do I achieve this? What is the last version of Firefox that is compatible with these add-ons?

The context-sensitive Firefox menu that appears when I right click on a link appears exactly over the context-sensitive application menus that come up in Yahoo, Box, and other sites, so the Firefox menu blocks me from seeing or clicking on the Yahoo or Box menu options. Is there a way to prevent the Firefox menu from appearing on top when another menu is active? or a way to disable the Firefox menu when on certain web sites? Even having the Firefox menu appear in a different location (to the left, for example, instead of to the right), would enable me to see and access the website's application menu.

For the last few days my Firefox does not display the downloads window. I have tried to follow the suggestion set out in Firefox Help ie Tools --> Options --> General

But my General Tab doesn't show under Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file". Under Downloads, the only option shows "save files to Downloads" and "Always ask me where to save files".

Any suggestions on how I can get to --> Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file".

Thank you in anticipation

When I watch a video with Mozilla Firefox on sites like YouTube, Google Video or Bing Video in full screen the taskbar shows at the bottom of my screen and doesn't disappear like it does in Internet Explorer. How do I watch videos in full screen without the taskbar showing? It's not a website problem, it's not a Windows problem, it only does this on Mozilla Firefox's browser. All three websites play perfect full screen video on the Internet Explorer browser with no taskbar showing at the bottom..

I really don't like the look-and-feel of the new pdf.js viewer. On my machine (6 yr old HP running Windows XP with sp 3) it displays slower than Acrobat Reader did, and I was perfectly happy with Acrobat Reader plugin. Frankly I want to disable pdf.js, but haven't been able to figure a way to do it. It doesn't display anywhere I could find on Add-ons Manager. I don't want to be compelled to use a feature that seems to be a performance detriment, at least for me. Mozilla, please rethink this!

The issue I am having is that when the firefox browser is opened, the contents are really-really small and reduced in scale. I do understand that this would be caused by the high resolution of the screen, however, if I open the I.E. browser, everything is at a normal viewing size.

Is there an add on, or some way to make firefox [19] work so that it displays correctly? I really don;t want to have to use I.E. !! I am asking this question on my old computer, so don't go by the operating system this query was submitted on. The computer I am inquiring about is a samsung series 17 chronos touchscreen 15.6 HD screen laptop.

So our System admin forces upon us a really slow internal website as our Home page. Fortunately it is not that big of a problem in Firefox (as it's in IE, but who uses that?) since I've set the browser to start all last opened tabs and windows on a Firefox restart, but as soon as we start a new window, that page opens up and I hate that. Any way I can override these system forced settings? Whenever I change that back to about:blank or Firefox Start page, probably on next system restart or whenever the group policies are enforced again it's changed back to that slow website.

Since Firefox is open and highly customizable, I was thinking there might be a way to do that (I won't mind an add-on to do that). Thanks!

I don't know which update did it... but I noticed today for the first time that Firefox "find" function (CMD + F on the mac) is no longer case sensitive!

Lord Jesus, Hallelujah! I can't tell you how many times I was looking for some text on a big page and was stymied because the word started a sentence, or was in all caps, and the silly case-sensitive search function wouldn't pick it up. I almost (ALMOST) switched to Chrome just because of this craziness. But now I don't have to.

To whomever fixed this in whatever update, bravo, sir, bravo. Or madam. Bravo, whoever you are!

I've read every answer to every question about downgrading Firefox. This time I want to upgrade from 19.0.2 to Firefox 22. I know where the index of versions reside. What I don't know is how to identify the English version. I want to download the full version... no stubs please. I've found three different setup.exe... one is empty, and the other two are not in English.

Can someone please point me to the correct directory so I can upgrade to version 22. I use Kaspersky virus software and they seriously cannot keep up with Mozilla updates. So I stay several versions behind. I would change my virus protection BUT I won't ever use Norton again as they allowed trojans onto my machine. I'd rather have Kaspersky but they're not updating their password manager or tool bars as fast as Mozilla.

Any help here? I really am a Firefox fan and would like to stick with it.

See here: https://support.cdn.mozilla.net/media/uploads/images/2013-03-07-20-12-39-1f0313.png

I've read through many suggestions about changing options in about:config, and various other settings, but nothing seems to work.

The browser is totally useless like this.

Any help on how to fix the font issue would be greatly appreciated!

I use my email on Cox.net. Yesterday I started having issues with their webmail. When I log in the page doesn't appear correctly. In my message preview pane it overlaps another item. So I contacted Cox about the issue and I've tried to clear cache and cookies on my computer, make the security level in Java high instead of very high, uninstall Firefox and reinstall it, restart Firefox in safe mode, change the advanced Javascript settings in Firefox, uninstall Java and reinstall it, I've restarted my computer after the installations, and clear Java cache. Yet in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome it works perfectly fine. Firefox displays it correctly on my mom's computer. What haven't I done because apparently it's only doing this on my laptop?

When I download a file, Firefox does 2 things: changes the file name to gobbledy-gook of letters and numbers, AND, adds a .part extension -- therefore the files won't open. This is a NEW problem. If I manually remove the .part extension in the download folder, the file will open, but I still have the problem of the name change. I believe that the .part extension is supposed to go away when the download is finished, but that does not happen. Also, my downloads always used to come with their original name, not a numbers/letters name. Thoughts?
