When I do a Google search and then click on one of the links it shows, I always get redirected to a different page. It never goes to the page I clicked on. I have to copy the link and post it in the address box in order to get there. I can't always do that, because some links don't have the address for the link.

Ok on my brothers account, he has no adress bar, the file edit veiw, or the Getting started/Google thing. The only thing he has is the new tabs area. He can't fix this in any right clicking of the screen, as far as we see. He doesn't want to delete the account because it has all of his iTunes songs and a lot of them were off CD's. Any way to fix it? We tried uninstalling and installing it again, but it didn't work, even if i ticked the box.

https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/704242 claims to be a closed question because a "solution" was provided. What solution? You say what plugin-container is supposed to do, but you don't say how to disable it and still use plugins or whether anything is being done to address the resource concerns that were raised. It's a POS and should be fixed or eliminated.

I have FF 3.6.6 and Flash 10.1. When I enter a site the entire computer hangs. The mouse operates but I cannot go to another site, leave the browser or even bring up the Task Manager. The entire PC is hung. This lasts 45 seconds of course and then everything is fine. Is this how the plugin containment code is really supposed to work?

For the past few weeks I have been trying to play some games to pass the time away. my firefox is current, my internet is cable, and I have called my internet company a number of times telling them to fix it! but the more that i think about it. the more I see its related to these games... I fear saying the games out of embarrassment. but when I looked up the games, 1 brought up that FF had a memory leak(witch I do not see how that would go into my internet connection) and the other does have a history of lagging... but flat out cutting off my internet to my laptop? I bought my laptop brand new 4months ago, all I can tell u is its an acer.. I'm VERY anal about running my spywear program. and the desktop connected to the same internet, never has any problems. I tried to play my game in IE, and it was fine. But I've been a firefox user for YEARS! I'm not a fan of IE. I don't want to have to close Firefox to play a game for awhile, then reopen it later just to finish browsing...
