I get a tab on yahoo email that flashes and says "babyjennyvfzf sent you a message" when I click on the tab it will never open, just shows the "loading" icon and when I X it out, it re-appears. I opened on IE and left it overnight and it never happened. Opened on Firefox and there it is again. Tried restarting, same results.

I am a concerned parent and I want to know if my child has has been erasing part of the history in firefox. How can you tell if part has been erased? I see it is VERY easy for them to erase portions and even selected sights. This is great for the person trying to hide, but not for a parent wanting to check.

I submitted several crash reports but there are none on the pc I can pull up. I downloaded a new Firefox but when I tried to install it windows said I had to have administrator privileges to do it. I am the administrator and I put in my password but it would not take it, I checked the password, changed it and eliminated it but still no go. Also tried installing as just a user but when I did the install window just disappears\. What can I do? Thanks for the help. At about this same time I had a malware attack which affected my firewall. Got it fixed but it didn't help Firefox.

Why are app tabs excluded from the "load when selected" option in Firefox 9?

I was using the "don't load tabs until selected" option in Firefox 8 and I appreciated it a lot. Now it seems app tabs are excluded from this option.

From what I can find, Firefox programmers decided to exclude app tabs because most users would want the apps they contain to update at all times, even before they have been selected. Here's my problem: 4 of my 6 app tabs are Google apps. Until I'm logged into my Google account, those tabs won't refresh to anything anyway. Now not only do I have to wait for six tabs to load at the same time when I start my browser, but I have to select all of them separately to log into my various apps.

I do not appreciate that Firefox programmers would remove an option because they assume it will be for the user's own good. Trust your users to know how to tweak their browser and don't take option away from them.
