To get to email had to go to history and find past & update! Clicked on browser control...warnings & error! How do I fix this? Not tech y so please easiest fix?! Windows 7...apparently Firefox auto took me to 25.0.1. Normally have only good things to say...this was my doing...hope you all can help me easily undo!!

Hi, I want to increase the number of recently closed windows which Firefox remembers. It currently remembers three recently closed windows, but frequently when I click on hyperlinks (not pop-ups) they automatically open in new windows, which functionally deletes the record of windows I had open and wanted to refer to again... only now they're gone, seemingly forever. Is there some setting to change this? I don't need or want Firefox to remember my entire browsing history, I just want to be able to revisit 6 or 7 recently closed windows because 3 is not enough. Thanks.

I suddenly can't copy and paste text from Word to the internet (Firefox or Chrome, email or other websites), but I can do the reverse. Any ideas? Copy and paste works between Word docs, and it works between internet sites (e.g., web page to email), just not from Word to the internet. Please help. I need to copy and paste my resume for an online job application.

Recently, the "save as" dialog box quit appearing when I attempt to download email attachments. I have the "always ask me where to save files" box checked in the tools/options/general/downloads area. The box still appears when I use Chrome, but not when I use Firefox.

I use a parts look up program called Microcat , the service is used with either a local database or a server database. I use the local database option , when the application starts it uses my default browser which is firefox. That part of the application works fine, but when I go to print within the application all I get is either blank tab, or a pop up with a print button that doesn't print. All these features work fine in IE 10 or 11 I have read through and followed several troubleshooting tips from the Mozilla website. I can send screen shots if required . Another thing if I try to print within the browser , all I get is a blank page.

Versions of Firefox previous to the current one (25.0.1 for Windows) displayed a pop-up of the url when you mouse-over a hyperlink in a webpage. This functionality appears to have disappeared (or been disabled) on my Windows 7 laptop, though it still works on my Win XP desktop (also version 25.0.1). How can I enable it on my laptop? I'd like to know where I'm about to be sent before I click an inexplicit hyperlink.

Thank you, Terry

When I hit print in the file menu, it used to offer me an option of highlighting part of a page and only printing that selection.
It no longer does that after the most recent upgrade of Firefox.
How can I get it back?
The fixes I've been offered on boilerplate pages are useless.

My problem is that when I'm watching Videos in the web it goes about 15 seconds in to the video and then the video screen freezes but the audio continues BUT as a replay of about 10 back in the video. When these 10 seconds have passed the video continues along with the synced audio. After about a minute or two It happens again. 10 seconds video freeze and 10 seconds of audio replay. Which is really REALLY annoying. This only happens with my Mozilla Firefox browser, I've uninsulated it and installed it three times and I'm using Windows 8. (I know it sucks). I also got the latest version of Adobe Flash Player V11.

Thanks.

Almost daily when I boot my computer "static.australianbrewingcompany opens my browser saying that I need to install something or another. the installations vary. This happens on start up before I ever ask Firefox to open and is new since i re-installed my browser. This is not a site that I have ever visited on my own. How do I stop this from happening?

With 25.0.1 installed, my internet credit card application no longer accepts a date from a graphic calendar. Normal input provides a calendar that I can simply select the date in setting up a date range. However after 25.0.1 (Firefox), the graphic calendar is provided but I cannot click on a date of my choosing. The manual date input process works fine and is my work around.

This happened immediately after I installed release 25.0.1. I do not know how to install a previous release or would have tried that to prove the release as the problem.

Last week, I downloaded Mumble, a voice chat program. I was playing World of Warcraft at the time, and needed to download Mumble on the fly, so I was insufficiently careful and downloaded an extension, Websteroids, at the same time. Websteroids highlights words in text documents which, when scrolled over, lead to advertisements. The claim of the Websteroids website is that it turns a webpage into a meteoroids game.

I have repeatedly disabled and removed it from my extensions list, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, deleted files with the Websteroids name on it, uninstalled it and Mumble, and any other files/programs that I could find from that date.
I've run my antivirus program (AVG), spybot s&d, and lavasoft ad aware and followed the advice from their scans. Nevertheless, Websteriods keeps reinstalling itself without warning.
I have restarted Mozilla in safe mode and I've also deleted anything I could find from the publisher, Creative Island Media, LLC.
The next step that I can think of is a system restore. Before I do that, is there any other less drastic step that might work? 

Thank you

If not, should Mozilla because with hacking and identify theft rising, other people may want to avoid electronic payments in the future? Should people be forced to do something dangerous?
