We've a new software which always opens a pop-up window when clicking on the Java links. The content of such a re-sizable window perfectly fits into a new tab. I'd like to force those new windows into a new tab. Pop-up blocker is active and that internal site is in the exception list. So it would be nice to have an option field for that in the general settings or in the Pop-up blocker settings. This is no bug, but could be a new feature of Firefox (like in IE). Thanks &

Kind regards, Peter Marbler

I have set Firefox so that every time I start it, it shows the tabs from last time. However, just recently it has started with the tabs from last time plus an extra tab.

The other day I installed three addons which all required Firefox to be re-started and each time it did so, there was an extra tab so that by the end of my addon session I had three extra unasked-for tabs. Not a problem really, just an irritation that I want to stop. How can I stop this?

Until recently this did not happen and I just got the tabs from my last session unless I had closed them before shutting down Firefox. Even if I make sure that there are no new, unused tabs before shutting Firefox, I still get a new tab when I start it again.

Firefox window is stuck as maximized, the restore down function does not work correctly.

"restore down" minimizes the window & it won't then return to the screen unless I right click on it on the task bar & then click maximize.

The minimize button works as it should & the window can be restored (maximised) by clicking on Firefox in teh task bar.

When this first happened I closed Firefox & restarted Windows (Vista). This has not solved the problem

Firefox used to open with my iGoogle homepage when I opened it up. I have created my personal homepage and that's what I want when I open. Suddenly, it started opening with the last page I was on in a previous session. When I noticed this, I made sure to close every page that was open before I signed off Firefox. Still, it will open with the last page of the previous session.

All I want is for Firefox to open my iGoogle page every time, as my homepage, when I go online with Firefox. How do I do that? I think I've checked some box I didn't intend to but I cannot find what it is. Is this something I do through Google? If so, sorry, but this is annoying and wasting a lot of my time figuring out how to make my life 'easier.' thanks.

I use Command+W to close windows. Unfortunately I often hit Command+Q by mistake, and quit Firefox when I don't want to. Back when Firefox used to ask if I wanted to save my tabs, that gave me the opportunity to cancel quitting. But now there is nothing to prevent the huge pain in the neck of having to restart Firefox and wait for a zillion tabs and pages to load.

Please put in a choice to be warned before quitting regardless.

I receive constant script errors and non-responsive errors using Firefox, as do many of my friends. I am using Facebook and Mafia Wars by Zynga

Here is an example of one:

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: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=508888121:7

I have tried the instructions on this page http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Warning+Unresponsive+script?s=script+errors&as=s

however, I get an error message when I try to access Config and enter: Navigation to the webpage was cancelled

Please help fix this or I'm going to have to use a different browser and I like Firefox better than the other options.

Thank you.

Naturally I have pop-up blocker functional but there is a new and really, really annoying "coupon" pop-up that is always on Amazon but also on other sites. Close the coupon window and it pops up every time I navigate to look at any product. It really is bad and vexingly doesn't even offer anything that the Amazon template doesn't already offer ("free shipping" above a certain expenditure on some items etc.). It has a distinctive green border and appears on other sites as well. How did they get around your software? How can I make this stop?
