Firefox gets stuck in a loop opening blank tabs when mail link to "NewInventors@intven.com" is clicked, on url http://www.intellectualventures.com/Inventors.aspx

I'm on MAC OS X 4.10.11, and the link goes through MAC Mail, which I never use. I use Firefox. So I looked up how to link Mac OS X mail to Firefox (using WMAP) and set it according to directions.

This problem occurs whether I look the url up on Firefox or quit Firefox and open the url on Safari, and click the link there: either actions start Firefox, and it loops opening new blank tabs. I've tried unplugging my hardwired link from MAC to cable modem, but by then the damage is done.

Quitting and NOT restarting firefox does not clear the problem, until Firefox has done this opening of huge numbers of blank tabs twice - the second time with the modem connection unplugged.

Sounds like either a Firefox bug, an incompatibility with OS X mail (between site and OS X), or incorrect MAC OS X Mail WMAP setup. I don't know how to isolate it any better than that, sorry.

The MAC Mail to Gmail Link via WMAP appears to work normally, in just viewing, reading, and deleting items in my GMAIL incoming mail box.

Sending a test message from myself in OS X mail to Gmail Firefox works fine.

Over time, due to me hitting wrong keys, my gmail login has accumulated several mistyped usernames. Every time I access gmail, they all pop up. I'd like to start clean, but I can't get rid of them. I've followed your instructions for clearing my cache and history, but to no avail. I've followed instructions to click inside the username window and then use the arrow and delete keys--also no success. I'm on a Mac, OSX 10.4.11. Thank you!

In trying to download an update I first received: "There were problems checking for, downloading, or installing this update. Firefox could not be updated because: No data was received (please try again)" It also gave a link to download manually. When I tried from the Firefox website I got: /Users/(deleted for privacy)/Desktop/Firefox 3.6.3(2).dmg.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.

Try again later, or contact the server administrator. I tried this 3 times.

Not sure how often

When trying to start Firefox again I got a message saying "Close Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time." This question is addressed in Mozillazine but nothing I've tried from there seems to work. I started a new Profile from the Profile Manager which at least gets me up and functioning, but weirdly enough the Manager also tells me the old (Default) profile is still running, though I can't find a way to close it. I also can't find the Default profile in my profile manager. can anyone help?

This happened

Just once or twice

I used to type a few letters in the location bar and history and suggestions would appear. Now I have to type in every web address I want to go to -- I don't know why the predictive typing and suggestions suddenly stopped working -- I haven't changed any settings. I've checked on Preferences/Privacy and it is set to Remember History and to suggest History and Bookmarks. I saw a similar question on here that suggested looking at the AVG add-on, but I don't have that. The predictive typing was very helpful -- I wish it hadn't disappeared!!! Can you please help?

I'm not sure whether or not the cursor activates this problem as it happens to pass over a word that wikipedia is programed to respond to w/ this definition balloon--it happens too fast for me to back track and figure out what i might have done that triggers its appearance. Seems random. No X to close balloon. Sometimes clicking cursor outside the balloon shuts if off...sometimes i can't get rid of it.Random occurrences of balloon but enough to be annoying.NOTE! Just now in hilighting "trouble shooting info" from Help menu, a balloon appeared w/ 4 icons:google, search Wikipedia, search duckduckgo and search surf canyon. This balloon appeared when the cursor went over the hi lighted text...it's like the Wikipedia dictionary definitions balloon i get when i'm reading online text! Connected?

Ever since the new update (3.6.11) My favs & history won't show up in the url bar as I type. Anyone else having this prob or know how to solve? Also, its not a privacy setting issue, ive double checked this. For that matter, when I try to adjust my privacy settings to custom, the setting bounces back to remember all. I don't know if this is an update glitch or an add-on glitch. All I know is the previous 3.6.10. wasn't doing this.

Help if ya can, please and thanks. ;)
