When i visit websites which use JavaScript pop-up windows to display content, if i click on a link, the window will not pop up. The same sites works fine on IE though.

I reinstalled FF no luck. I also notice that the Google search bar at the top of the window does not work, neither pressing enter or clicking the search icon.

Any ideas?

I spent a few hours drafting a document for a post and my internet connection froze (a problem I have been having) so I copied the post text and forgot save it before restarting my computer.

Is there a way to retrieve it after restart? Does the clipboard get completely erased after restart?

This is one of those annoying little things. I enjoy working the Samarai Sudoku puzzles available from djape. The solutions for all the different puzzles are available all on one page: http://www.djape.net/sudoku/wp/index.php/solutions/

For the puzzles, I can right-click on the puzzle image, have it open in a new tab, and print it from there. But the solutions are different - they are png graphics that are a link from the solutions page. I can't just right-click, because the image is a generic blank puzzle graphic. The link takes me to a .png file, but I can only choose to open the graphic with Preview or save the file. I would rather open it in a new tab and print it from within Firefox, because the page title (and thus the date of the puzzle) can appear on the printout and I can know which solution goes with which puzzle!

I looked for add-ons that might allow me to fix this - no luck. The Firefox preferences only let me choose between the QuickTime 7.6 plug-in or Preview, and they both just open it in Preview.

Whenever a web page just has a png graphic as part of its page, that loads just fine (including the graphics on the Mozilla support site). Why is this a different issue just because it's accessed by a link?

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I am unable to edit bookmarks neither in the "organize bookmarks" menu nor in the bookmark tab (star) itself. I followed suggestions for another user to delete cookies, clear the cache and uninstall themes.

My theme is the default and I have not installed add-ons. Everything I am using in Firefox 3.6.12 is exactly what Firefox added. Prior to installing Firefox 3.6, I had no problem whatever.

PLEASE, help! If necessary, I suppose I could go back to an earlier version of Firefox.

I am trying to download firefox 3.6.10 from the ftp server (yes, i know that 3.6.12 is available, but i need 3.6.10 to resolve a plugin issue).

For some reason, I cannot start the "Firefox Setup 3.6.10.exe" download from "ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/3.6.10/win32/en-US/". I think the file is missing on the ftp server?

When displaying a Google map I get about four vertical strips that alternately display good and in gray bands. The gray area displays the message "we are sorry, but we don't have maps at this zoom level for this region." Zooming out doesn't get rid of the gray areas.

I've had this problem for over a year and get around it by using either MS Internet Explorer or Google Chrome which work Ok. Otherwise Firefox works fine and I use it for everything else except Google Maps.

I've tried an uninstall of FireFox and then reinstall but it didn't help. I don't remember what I was doing when this problem first showed up.
