My bookmarks used to open in a new tab automatically (just click on it). After the latest update to 11.0, when I click on a bookmark, it replaces the page I am viewing. How can I get the old behavior back? I cannot find any setting in either "options" or "tab mix plus" addon to fix this. I do not want to have to resort to the right-click context menu option. Thanks!

On 4/2/12 Firefox informed me that Java had serious issues with security and I should let them block it, so I did. Later I found I couldn't play Pogo anymore so I tried to enable Java but it still wouldn't work. My Java is up to date, 6.0.290.11. Now I cannot update Java, error 1606, nor can I uninstall Java from my computer, same error cannot access location, in order to re-install. Since I was using the most updated version, my Java should not have been blocked. Anyone else have this problem? I am stuck and can't update or re-install or anything.

Firefox has been randomly and repeatedly crashing for about a week. I sometimes get a couple hours of uninterrupted browsing but often have to restart Firefox 10 times in 10 minutes too. It is completely random, still happens in safe mode AND when plug-ins/add-ons are disabled. I am using the latest version, I have uninstalled completely and re installed, but this only worked for a day or so. It happens on many different pages and does not seem to have a pattern. Malware bytes has been run repeatedly and nothing is found. Windows has all available updates. The only thing I can imagine could cause this that I haven't tried to fix is the discordance between Firefox and old Windows XP as a possible issue. Any ideas?

If I restart my browser everthing works just fine for at least 5 minutes. When I watch several youtube videos, the lag comes back and the video starts to freeze aboud every second for just a faction of a second. The sound is stil played properly it only affects the graphics... After about 10 minutes watching videos the whole browser gets laggy . Sometimes when I type the fonts appear only about a second later. Scrolling is also affected. Some minutes later everything is back to normal but it't not allways like that?!

I don't know what to do, I allready restarted with add-ons disabled but I didn't notice any difference. The drivers of my ati graphics card are up-to-date and I only have the problem with firefox, chrome works perfectly.
