I have my browser set to open on comcast.net webpage and to never use tabs. I have been using firefox for years and am very familiar with it. Suddenly it has started opening on the last page it was on when shut down, and has started using tabs. When I delete Firefox from my computer, it still remembers all my settings. I had this problem once before years ago and ended up having to wipe my entire drive to fix it. I would like to avoid a drive wipe this time. I need to know how to get ALL of the browsers information deleted from the registry so I can get a truly fresh install. And yes, I have tried all the normal avenues and am pretty computer savvy. Please help before I go nuts. Thanks.

I recently deleted the photos in my iPhoto, and I gather from information given by other Mac users that I can't recover them because I hadn't activated the Time Machine until after the deletion. However, I'd like to know if I can set up the Time Machine for future use. I'd like to send information to my hard drive rather than some outside source. I do have an external hard drive I could use if needed. When I enter the Time Machine, I don't know what to put into the box for place to send info.

In firefox most of my clickable button links appear as strange little boxes with numbers in them (see the screenshot). They still function normally but just don't appear as they should. I tried to disable the "no script" add on and change some browser settings but nothing works. My chrome doesn't have this problem so it's only an issue with firefox.

Also many videos don't work. They do on youtube, and similar websites but not on yahoo, or veehd(divx) etc. I don't know if these issues are related.

Huge thanks if anyone can help.

Mozilla keeps telling us we need to update to Adobe Reader version 11.0.10.32. Nowhere in the Adobe site is there such a version. Have looked, have contacted, so will Mozilla PLEASE TELL US WHERE? Additionally, this is being sent from my Vista OS, and Adobe has no Version 11 for Vista. SO neither my XP PRO systems not my Vista Systems will update to the Version Mozilla shows in the Add-ons Plugin Manager pages.

Why the master password window is opening when there is already one?

Everytime I start a Firefox window the first time there is a certain delay, after the the delay Firefox ask me for my master password. That's fine! But if I start Firefox and move to a website which require a password which is stored in the Firefox password manager before the end of the delay, Firefox ask me instant for the master password. The problem is, if I start to enter my master password it often happens, that at the end of the first mentioned delay and in my writing process a second window with the master password opens. Isn't it possible to deactivate the second master password window if there is already one? Would love that feature and would improve my usability experience. Thank you so much, for what you do! Richard

Often, when I start Firefox, it immediately crashes. But not always right away. Sometimes it takes a few seconds or I have to type something into Google or open a page and than it crashes. And sometimes it doesn't crash at all. It started on 31.03.2015 and I haven't been able to find the source. My plugins are updated, I am using the newest Firefox-Uptade, my Windows is updated, my Anti-Spyware programs detect no virus, even if I start it in the save mode (with deactivated add-ons) it crashes. Thunderbird also crashes, but not as much as Firefox. The only big change before Firefox started crashing is that I exchanged my 1GB RAM for 4GB RAM but I used RAM that is supposed to be compatible to my notebook.

I am using a pair of virtual servers running IIS 7. SSL 3.0 is disabled on both of them. FIrefox, starting with v37 is not allowing users to connect. Anybody else seeing this?

EDIT: I am updating my question because it is sure to come up for others. To disable SSL 3.0 on IIS 7, I used this:

https://www.digicert.com/ssl-support/iis-disabling-ssl-v3.htm

It appeared not to work because firefox had cached the SSL version information and not just the cert. Clearing my cache fixed the problem. Unfortunately, this is going to continue to cause problems for my user base. It is a bad idea to use SSL 3.0. It is also a bad idea for FIrefox to cache the SSL version, IMHO, but there you go.
