This seems to only have happened as of late. Thanks

I often use Tor to browse the internet, but after I recently updated to Firefox 11.0 (Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu 1.0) I don't know how to disable Tor or to open a non-Tor browser; Tor button is gone from the bottom right corner. Thanks!

I'm running Firefox 11.0 (Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu 1.0) in Ubuntu 10.04. Ever since updating to Firefox 11.0, I have been unable to turn off Tor, or to browse without using Tor. There used to be a button in the lower-right that allowed me to toggle between Tor enabled/disabled, but it is no longer there. I have been unable to find any mention of this in the Tor documentation, so I'm asking here in hopes that someone has had a similar issue and has been able to solve it.

I have a redirect problem, as noted earlier this week, and have yet to find a solution for that but also have another problem. When I uncheck "Accept Third Party Cookies" under options it will not stay unchecked. In fact any change I make goes back to previous settings each time I reboot, etc.

I never save passwords - never have, never will. Using evil IE, Gmail works correctly in that it prompts me for ID and password for each new browser instance. Yet when I open gmail with FF, it goes straight to my inbox without prompting for ID or password. I use gmail in "always secure" mode. Cookies are enabled, of course, just did not expect my password to be saved and loaded from a cookie. How can I rectify this problem?

Infinite "Press OK" dialogs from bad advertisers are allowed to hijack Firefox. How do I stop them?

Some "nasty" advertisers use a popup dialog that says "Press OK to Continue" or something along those lines. I know the OK button will take an action I do not want to allow, but the advertiser is exploiting something in Firefox to infinitely generate new dialogs whenever one is closed, until I press OK. During this, the Firefox browser will not allow me to close the offending tab or the offending browser window, so my only escape is Task Manager. After this happens I cannot restore my previous session because that session contains the hijacker.

I have included a URL that generated a popup that had this behavior, but it may or may not show up repeatedly, and it appears plenty of other places online as well.

Please take action so that an open dialog cannot prevent a tab or browser being closed.

WARNING: Following link in "URL of affected sites" may result in unpleasant browser behavior as described above.
