Within the last couple days I'm getting the most annoying pop up ads...in the top right hand corner it says "SKIP THIS AD" and you have to click on it to get past it.

I've searched all around the net and I keep reading that this is specific to FireFox. I've tried running my spyware and protection software, all with no help.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit. I've installed the add on called "Ad Blocker Plus" and have added the different suggested filters, all with no help at all.

Can someone please tell me how to COMPLETELY disable these annoying ads. I've been a Firefox user for as long as I can remember...if I don't get this completely sorted out VERY soon I'm going to completely switch over to Safari.

Can anyone help me with this? Please email me if you have any permanent solutions. My contact email is jamcha00@gmail.com

(it's jamcha "zero zero" @ gmail.com)

Thanks in advance everyone!

whenever i try to watch DivX movies through a streaming website, the extension to the movies are .avi files, only these streams cause my firefox to crash. if i would just let the firefox load itself out of the problem, which i have, it never does until i CTRL ALT DELETE it in the end task manager.

streaming worked fine for .avi files before the new firefox update, so will this error be fixed, or is it something else? and if so how do i fix the problem so i can continue to view these movies online?

When checking my gmail and hotmail accounts, the back button fails to return to my previous page. For example, I can click the little down arrow along the right-side of the navigation button and see that Google is let's say five (three, ten, one, seven it doesn't matter) pages down the history list but I cannot get there with the back button in any way, shape or form. I can click all day long and I remain at the same page.

This is a common problem that has been around for awhile (search it yourself) and has not been addressed in any fashion.

1. No, clearing the cache does nothing.

2. No, I have no add-ons or extensions.

3. No, this behavior is not present in Internet Explorer 8 or 9.

4. Yes, I'm running the latest version - 3.6.13.

I would really like to use Firefox but with all the bugs, and this one especially, I'm forced to use IE. A significant reason for using a particular browser is ease of use. You folks may have a more secure browser than IE but at least IE works and doesn't feel like I'm driving over a pothole ridden road.

And nice attempt to discourage forum participation - seriously, can you make it any more cumbersome to post comments?

I have no idea why this suddenly started happening.. every auction on ebay has a box saying "reported web forgery" it does not allow me to read auction details or see pics but all regular ebay graphics show fine. when i click to ignore the message it pops up a box "get me out of here" or "this isn't a web forgery" after clicking "this isn't a web forgery" I get a new browser to report it to mozilla but i still can not view auction info? This is very annoying. and after years of Mozilla use I am almost ready to go back to IE.

With the possibly millions of people suffering from this including myself, it amazes me this is an issue Mozilla has been unable (0r perhaps unwilling) to fix, despite the fact it has been in at least a dozen versions! I can only assume that this is the result of the really crappy way Version 3 manages Bookmarks; as it can't accommodate bookmarks beyond a certain point, so I have another idea...

If you load the JSON file into notepad or similar application, you are able to see all the bookmarks you have stored. Using this data coupled with the "Import HTML" function, is it possible to create the missing bookmarks by editing the HTML file?

I have been having problems since installing V-Share. I've read many threads about how to fix this, but the behaviour I am seeing is different - updated I guess.

I can not view any Add-ons, although they are all still working. I want to delete this V-Share toolbar, but don't know how to when I can't view the Add-ons. Obviously V-Share is hiding them somehow.

Additionally, a few of my plugins do not appear when I use about:plugins, although some standard plugins do. Ideas?

I have been bugged by this for years and finally decided to do something about it. According to my Google search, this is a well known problem for many of us, and I cannot figure why Firefox has not done something about it.

Using Firefox 3.6 on my PC, the apostrophe does not render consistently.

If I write text for my web page using the standard key to the right of the semicolon ( the apostrophe, i.e., ‘), I then upload to my website with FTP and view the result: The text at that point usually appears as the square with a question mark, indicating that the code does not exist. This also happens on other source’s pages, but here I think I know the source of the apostrophe.

The Google results suggest work-arounds, but Firefox’s inability to render the apostrophe simply should not happen. Reading the same page as above on Internet Explorer shows the apostrophe correctly. So this is clearly a Firefox problem. Who can fix it?

I am trying to watch a missed TV episode. I get a "message" indicating that I have to disable Adblock Plus. Directions given: In right hand corner of Firefox, click on the ABP icon, and uncheck "Enable Adblock Plus". However, there is NO such icon on Firefox' toolbar. I went to your help site; FAQ; checked out forums, etc. You would think "disable Adblock Plus" would be pretty simple, but I guess it's not.
