I want to be able to use email address links in a browser window by just clicking on them and have them go to the yahoo tab I already have open. Instead, Microsoft opens its Mail app and I have to login separately even though I already have a yahoo window open and logged in. Currently I have to copy the email address and go to my yahoo tab and start an email message there. It's not the worst thing to have to do, but if I could just click on the address and have it automatically open up my yahoo mail that would be more convenient.

I often want to keep a tab open and go back to the search. It used to be that clicking on a search result opened a new tab,but now it replaces the search with that link so that I have to back out of it to get to the search and use history to see where I have been. This is a dealbreaker for me. There does not appear to be any way of restoring this behavior, even in about:config. Help

I'm coding a website with Google Maps. I add a bunch of markers to the map and to each of those an infoWindow that is activated by clicking on the marker. Was working late 1/14 and early 1/15 (5 AM ish), but by 11:00 AM it wasn't working. I changed it to simply alert() when a marker was clicked and that didn't work either. The Google page explaining infoWindows has an example map (https://developers-dot-devsite-v2-prod.appspot.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/infowindow-simple) and it doesn't work either. My code and the Google example work on Chrome and IE. I did all the restart with add-ons disabled, restarted Firefox fresh, got rid of add-ons to no avail. Please help! I love using Firefox, but will be unable to if this isn't resolved. Thank you, Alan

How to stop Firefox from closing multiple tabs when I only want to close single ones?

When closing tabs by clicking it's own "close cross/button" I often get a popup sayin I'm about to close x many tabs. If I don't click the popup firefox closes also tabs that I haven't clicked to close (because I want them to remain open). If I don't clikck the popup, the tabs that get closed seem to be ones that I've opened through a tab that I do want to close.

As you can guess, this is highly frustrating. I have loads of tabs open at any given time and I'm using Tree Style Tabs to keep them a bit more organized. I haven't found anyone else with this problem so could it be causing this behaviour?

I thought Shumer's site had some secret government way of knowing it was my home address, but then repeated on the flower ordering site and on this support Mozilla site. Asks for your email account, begin to enter it, and it autocompletes including my home address, city, zip state, before I offer to enter that info. This is an invasion of my privacy. It's like when you call someone on your phone and they already have your phone number on their caller id, but in this case, includes your actual residence address. How to turn that off would be a very helpful bit of info, and searching it online only gives results that don't understand the question at all.

'Never Remember History' Option Clarifications: Issue Resolved

Do I have the following information correct:

1a) Selecting 'Never Remember History' means that I do not need to click on the 'clear history' option (even though all of the options are selected) because none of the history or any of the selections will be remembered to begin with.

b) Clicking the 'clear data' option is also unnecessary with 'Never Remember History' selected because this data will be cleared when the browser is closed but I can delete it manually if the cache becomes too large during a session.

2. Since 'Always Remember History' saves the history and 'Never Remember History' does not remember the history to begin with, what is the point of manually clicking 'Clear History?'

When I try to access downloaded files in Firefox after my latest windows update (Installed today), I cannot do so. Instead it either opens infinite tabs of the blank file, or it attempts to open the file name in four different tabs (such as putting the word spring in the search bar of the third tab opened if it was the third word in the file name). I need Firefox to function for school, please advise.
