When I get links sent to me in Gmail and I want to view them I usually "press cmd + click link" to open the link in a new window. When I do this in Gmail it opens as a foreground tab even if my default action is to open in the background.

This is not the case in Hotmail or on other site - just Gmail. If I rightclick and Open in new tab then it opens correctly in a background tab but I would like this action using "cmd+click" if possible.

I just upgraded to OS X Lion, and when I went to work, I noticed that Firefox 5.0.1 stopped connecting to the Internet.

It refused to connect me through the corporate proxy (MS ISA + NTLMv2 Auth). After repeated attempt, it would sporadically connect me to http sites but NEVER https sites.

If you need further information, please let me know.

Greetings all,

On my Macbook, I have Firefox and all of my bookmarks are contained within. I am attempting to export my bookmarks from Firefox, and then import them into my Safari browser. I have read just about every Firefox tutorial, and am still hitting a dead end. If I follow the Firefox tutorial, I am led to believe that clicking within the Firefox bar at the top of my computer, on "Bookmarks" (which is just to the right of "History"), I will see a drop down menu, and then I will be able to scroll down to "Organize Bookmarks" When I click on "Bookmarks", indeed there is a drop down menu....but unlike the tutorial, where you can plainly see "Organize Bookmarks", this does not appear for me. I am so stumped, and so frustrated. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all, so much Jeff

FireFox 5 for Mac doesn't seem to play well with PDFs. Not only doesn't it view them, in some cases it won't download them.

On several sites, such as SouthEastern Toyota's site and the Florida Department of Transportation's SunPass site, the site systems will serve up PDF files which simply do not display in FireFox and which do not get downloaded. Earlier versions of FireFox did not have problems with those sites; FireFox 4 and 5 do. Other web browsers, including Safari, Opera, and, over on Windows, IE 8 and 9, have no problems. Is there a fix and when will it be available?

When I search for something, regardless of the search engine used the results of the search appear in the "active" tab. Is there a way to configure Firefox to automatically open a new tab and show the search results in that new tab? Yes, I can do it manually by opening a new tab, than doing the search, but it would be much more "user friendly" if this would be automatic. I use an Apple Mac Pro running Mac OSX 10.7

Is it possible to open multiple pages at once (like a home button), but allows you to select/ sort under different topics. e.g one click opens all financial tabs, another opens sports, etc

Consider that I want to sort these vairous topics as a way to review all my regular interests individually, without having some many pages open when I click the home button, only to close non relevant pages.

In essence I see it as having 2 or 3 home buttons. Does this exist?

When I am in Fullscreen mode, the toolbar at the top disappears and only appears when you mouse-over the top of the screen.

Is there a setting somewhere so that when I go to fullscreen mode, I can choose to keep the address bar, tab bar and the bookmarks bar visible (not auto hide)?

I seem to be in the beta channel. Which I am finding that for my busy lifestyle, has too many incompatability issues with add ons and extensions. I don't have time to keep finding and waiting for new solutions and upgrades from your developers. I just upgraded to firefox 7 and lost some add ons that I'd rather still have.

1. can I just go back to firefox 6.3.4 or wherever I was

2. should I switch to some "slower" upgrade channel, and where would I find this?

This has happened on several different websites, in several different contexts. I enter the information but then receive a "Please provide your name and email address" or "That's not a properly formatted email address" message (depending on whatever the form's code provides for error messages for blank required fields). I've double checked, of course, and the text is entered correctly. This did occur once with autofill, the other times I entered the text myself.

I am using Firefox on my 27" IMac as the default browser, and it works well. I need it to default to a more zoomed in setting. I know I can zoom in using "Command +", but I am compelled to do this after every screen. How can I change the default screen setting for a larger display of Firefox every time, consistent with the large and fine pixeled display at 2560x1440?

I am using Firefox 7.0, Mac OSX 10.7.1, on a mid 2010 27" IMac with an I7 cpu and 16Gb of RAM.

Thanks!
