Found nowhere better to ask for this feature so sorry.

Something like this on my mind: http://i67.tinypic.com/2v322k9.jpg

When you see a concise list of all your tabs with full names it only makes sense to add the ability to close anyone on them. Simple.

I had Windows 8/1 on my Dell Desktop PC XPS 8500 with 24GB memory; a fast machine. I have a solid internet connection through my telephone company, CenturyLink; always works excellently. Firefox worked great. Then, last week or so I downloaded the upgrade to Windows 10 and since then, I keep having problems. Firefox has slowed to a crawl, when it does work. It often crashes, the web pages I go to often won't open. I tried re-setting my modem; no improvement. I "asked" Mozilla how to fix and the answer I received online made no sense. My Firefox - which is the latest - didn't have any of the places the answer told me to go to. The 4-line icon does not open to "options," like the answer said. I am not an expert, obviously, but I am also not an idiot. I can follow directions except the directions I received did not apply to anything I could find on my Firefox of my display screen. When I re-set Firefox I lost too much of what I had saved; I will not do that again. Is there a problem with Windows 10 and Firefox? Like I said, on 8.1 everything was exceptional. Is there a conflict with any software I am using? Where do I look for answers? Also, I could NOT access the Firefox Health Report. The directions to find it I received do not correspond to anything on my Firefox page or my Options. I don't know what to do. Please, I hope you can help me.

Hi.

I've had this problem for a while on Chrome and Edge, so I installed Firefox. The problem is, I think I have a virus called something like cloud scout or of the similar. whenever I click n any link in a website, a new tab will open with a annoying advertising site that sometimes has windows that have text i but no submission box so i have to go in to task manager to exit firefox. I have tried all the solutions online, running different programs and antivirus things. Even my antivirus (Kaspersky Total Security 2016) doesnt notice it. I have tried: CCleaner, Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes antimalware and a few others which i wont name. If you could provide some advice on either programs to use or a fix in firefox, i would be greatly appreciative.

Thanks, PS I just donated £20 :-)

Cursor, keyboard typing, touchpad all slow to respond. Browsing slow to open pages. Everything is jerky, delayed. I tried the refresh, but to no avail. Have done most of the things on the troubleshooting pages suggested for delay/crashing.

MOST aggravating is the sudden appearance of loads of advertising on web pages I've been using frequently, including Youtube that involve streaming. This didn't used to be anything like as bad.

Only using streaming for TennisTV channel or Eurosport, FilmOn TV , and Youtube tennis match replays No extensions or Add-ons and All my few plug-ins (eg Picasa, silverlight, Google update are on 'Request ' to activate except Shockwave which is on always activate for the Tennis TV channel, but due to problems with THEIR update, I went back to the Adobe 18.0 version of that one and that fixed those streaming problems.

Also noticed a delayed audio as others have mentioned - but only in one Youtube clip to date.,

I just updated to Firefox 42 and now I cannot open any embedded links in e-mails--neither by clicking on them (as in Firefox 40) or by right clocking and choosing Open in new tab. (New tabs do open properly if I do a Google search and click on a result.) It is embedded links in e-mail that won't work. My e-mail is @live.com (Hotmail).

This is a huge problem. Can someone tell me what's happened?

I have the WONDERFUL add-on 1-ClickWeather and it now has a message about add-on "signing." Now... I DO NOT want to use an INFERIOR product like the one suggested in the add-on's description.

I Would Like To Use The Add-On That I Already Have On My Firefox, 1-ClickWeather. So, How Do I Turn Off Add-On "Signing" On An Individual Add-On? It Says To "Proceed With Caution" But It Will Not Show Me The Details Of My Weather. I Reinstalled The Add-On But It Does Not Yet Register My Location.

Yes, I KNOW it has been discontinued but is has always worked until this past Saturday. It was discontinued several Years ago but was kept alive by an individual poster whose comments are gone. I have the add-on on my computer. I have continued updating it for the continued Firefox updates. Now, I want it Back but there's this ridiculous thing about add-on "signing" and to "proceed with caution..."

I got a message saying there was an update to Firefox, and started downloaded it but did not install it. When the user account control window comes up to ask if I want to run it, the publisher is "unknown" - which is why I'm asking, is this really a Mozilla update?

I hate the new tab with the tiles. But what makes me angry is that it was pushed onto me. Is there a chance that Mozilla can adopt a respectful attitude and allow users to opt-in to a feature? Unwillingly, I am now in the situation where I have to work, research, and install addin's to disable a feature that is unwanted and useless to me.
