After installing Firefox 4 I got the following message when on the weatherunderground page: "Firefox prevented this page from automatically reloading". Clicking on the allow button will get rid of the message but it comes right back. I uninstalled Firefox 4 and downloaded Firefox 3.6.16 but I still get the same message. How do I get the page to automatically reload?

I've found a few larger images (986 x 1024 and 2420 x 2514) that I'd like to view over the entire screen. Is there a way to do this by toggling off (then back on afterward) all of the tool bars--including the status bar and the task bar? Or is there an FF add-on that will perhaps do this even easier?

FYI- I'm using Firefox v. 3.6.16

Until Shockwave flash works on FF4 and doesn't cause pages to hang for long periods of time even those that have no video there is no real point in using it. Even if you disable it, so many pages depend on it somehow again whats the point.

How do I capture & save a video which I've seen on a website, and is now (probably) in a temp file somewhere?

I sometimes see a video on a website that I'd like to save. I'd expect to click on it, and hit [copy], and [paste] it in a folder. Or [Save as...], and give it a name and address. But no: no can do. Is there a utility or plug-in I need, or is there a Firefox feature I'm unaware of? I'm running Windows Vista, on a dialup, so once I download something I'd rather keep it than do it again.

About a month ago I had trouble with my internet access so eventually deleted Firefox and reloaded it from scratch. Since then, if I open a new window I get a lot of tabs opening. They seem to be the tabs I had open the first time I tried to open a new window rather than tabs I now have open. This means that opening a new window is slow (about 14 tabs to open) and does not even include tabs that I want to use.

On Firefox 4, how can I put one "new tab" on the "tab bar" (The + sign) and one next to the "back/forward" buttons (as in FF 3.6)?

In my current Firefox, the "new tab" icon/item from the "customize" pop-up window menu of items is placed next to my home, back, forward buttons near the top-left of my header (Button 1 for "new tab"). Then, the tab bar automatically come with a small tab (with a + sign) to the right of your last tab opened (so you click on + and a new tab opens. Button 2 for "new tab"). I like to have this "new tab" button twice (as a + mini tab, and next to my "home icon".

When I upgraded to Firefox 4, I seemed to be only able to "customize" or use the "new tab" in one place. Either as an icon next to home button, or as a "+ minitab", but NOT both.

What can I do to put this button in Firefox 4 on BOTH places???

Your help is really appreciated. I want to upgrade, but I want my buttons on both places...

I upgraded to FF 4, but downgraded again just because this feature... that's just me of coarse :-)

Is there a way on this forum to find my previous questions and problem reports? Since posting a question earlier today, I've found MOST of the answer and would therefore like to append what I found to the question, without waiting for someone else to answer it. I don't remember the title I gave the earlier question, or I'd use that title in searching for it.

The troubleshooting information below is more relevant to a previous problem than this question.

I'm not sure if this is a Firefox problem or MLB's problem. When I try to access MLB.com's scoreboard: http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/scoreboard/index.jsp?tcid=nav_mlb_scoreboard

or Gameday (including Box and Wrap): http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/gameday/index.jsp?gid=2011_04_02_sdnmlb_slnmlb_1&mode=gameday

I get the page's header but then the rest of the page is blank. I asked MLB.com and they instructed me to clear my cache, which I did but that did not help. All of my plugins are up to date as of today (something else I checked), so I am not sure why I am having this problem. I have been able to use these in the past.
