When I open Firefox a second Firefox window opens with http://www.weeklyhealthnewscanada.com/latest/articles/breakthroughdiet/vc/ca/index.php in it. This is a form of spam since I do not want this site to open on my computer and I have not subscribed to it.

Windows 7, wide screen monitor, script overlap as well in some areas. Font size has no effect. As an example on the Netflix site the the box which allows a choice of DVD or Bluray overlaps the remove X line. As far a script its as if the line space between two lines is halved.

It just started recently. I disabled all plugins but it still didn't fix it. I also tried reseting my preferences and using safe mode, but it still didn't fix it. I've opened firefox on other users on my computer and there's no problem with them. When i put my cursor over any icon on my toolbar, menu bar included, it used to just appear as rounded edge rectangle highlighting the icon. but now it's a white lined not rounded rectangle. I just like the way it used to look. now it just makes firefox seem like an older version

When I try to download a software up date for another program in Binary File (eg. C Cleaner or a Microsoft file) in Firefox they all just come up in the download window as 'Canceled'? When I go to the destination folder the download file icon is there with 0 Kb's for size...Then when I click 'RETRY' the download it appears to download fully, but when I go into the destination folder the downloaded file is not there? I need to know if there is something in the Firefox options to resolve this problem or much more!!
