When I set Firefox as the default browser, the Short Cuts to Internet Explorer are removed and replaced with Firefox's short cuts. Yes, I know I can create a IE short cut, but there is no reason why Firefox should remove the IE short cuts, as I use both browsers..

Please let me know if there is a fix for this. I have one program (site) that requires me to have Firefox as the default and others requiring IE as the default. I would like to switch back and forth between IE and Firefox changing the default. I do not need 2 Firefox short cuts, which is what Firefox creates.

Windows 7 - I can no longer click and drag anything anymore. Attempting to click and move a tab simply selects the tab. Doing the same thing to a bookmark just selects the bookmark. In addition, Firefox is now hanging every few minutes for anywhere from a few seconds to a minute.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no effect.

I logged in to the Adobe site from Dreamweaver CS5.5. The site recognized me and displayed my name on the page. However, it did not display the welcome bar where registered users like me can make posts. See http://forums.adobe.com/community/gen.../forum_comments?view=discussions&start=0. The bar should appear just below the black Forums box on the left, with an avatar for the user.

After contacting Adobe customer support I just tried it in IE9 and Google Chrome with no problems. Entered the url in a fresh Firefox page with the same result - no access.

So I thought that I would ask you about how to fix it.

I just upgraded to Firefox 12.0 and have found that I can't drag anything anywhere. At first I thought it was a problem with the Menu Editor extension -- I was trying to reposition a menu element just after doing the upgrade from v11.0. In the Menu Editor Options window that can be done by simply clicking and dragging, but it didn't work.

I spent time fooling with that until I realized that other drag-type features don't work. In the order discovered:

  1. Cannot rearrange (drag and drop) tabs.
  2. Can't drag tab off Tab bar to open tab in another window.
  3. Cannot rearrange bookmarks and favicons on Bookmarks toolbar. The Bookmarks toolbar Context menu opens and its commands work.
  4. Can't drag tabs to Bookmarks toolbar or folder.
  5. [Opened Customize window] can't drag items to or from Customize window and can't rearrange or move Navigation toolbar or Add-on bar icons.

There may be more drag-related issues but these are the only ones I can think of and have found. I'm sure if I knew off the top of my head any extension interfaces that accomodate dragging they would fail to work. Basically no elements move when I click on it with the cursor and try to drag. I'm not getting any feedback graphic such as circle with slash.

This may be an extension conflict but before I start toggling numerous ad-ons someone might know if this is a new feature setting I don't know about, which has been the case before when I've upgraded.

I also saw a recent thread opened where the person has a similar problem (but on a Mac -- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/926256?s=can%27t+drag+and+drop&r=11&e=es&as=s). I'm wondering if perhaps there are other items this person also cannot move but hasn't discovered yet, and if that problem and mine might be related.

Hi! :)

I have this page that I created that, while loading, shows an error in Firefox Error Console but quickly disappears when the page fully loads. I suspect the error happens because the JS loads first before the elements (with the ID being called) loads later on and when it does, the error disappears but I wanted to make sure there are no other reasons why this happens.

Thank you so much in advance for your help/assistance!
