Many websites I visit have on the first line of the web page a series of menu options which do not respond when I move the mouse to select any of the options. If I use full screen mode these buttons operate correctly. These buttons work correctly when I use IE or Chrome. I am running Windows 7 and this only happened in the last two weeks.

Firefox asks for a general password using a drop-down window when opening a page with a log-on section, presumably for an autofill. (It's annoying and I wish I could get rid of it, but that's another story.) My home page has a log-on section, so the prompt appears. But, when I try to choose a bookmarked page, and if the prompt appears while I'm doing it, the bookmark menu covers the prompt. Nothing I do dispels the bookmark menu, whether clicking away from the menu, choosing the menu item, or even just typing the password. I have to restart, sometimes requiring 'force quit' from the Activity Monitor. I automatically clear my history when I quit. Seems obscure enought that it might be a bug...

When I click on "Firefox" orange button Top Left Corner of the program, The Menu disappears. Not just that menu but all menus. right click anything the popup menu disappears. Click on the bookmark tab and the popup menu disappears. I was hoping this would have been fixed in Version 9. I have completely uninstalled and re-installed This will happen with a completely fresh install of Firefox with no personal settings, bookmarks, extensions. I wish there was a way to post a video of what is happening.

Before I upgraded to the most recent version of fire fox, I was in the internet options area in the "tools" menu and made changes. Now whenever I try to open an new tab from a link, firefox prevents it from being able to do that. How can I stop this?

I get this message each time I try to open a new tab from a link or whenever a page that needs to automatically refresh tries to do it: "firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page." It gives me an option to allow individual tabs to open otherwise I just get a blank white page. I know this was a part of the internet options before I simply can't find it now with the new upgrade. Please help me, I can't upload videos to FB anymore.

Not much more I can add. I had what I thought was the latest Firefox, then yesterday there was the message under the google input box saying I did not have the latest version of Firefox and a link to "upgrade now". I clicked on the link and down loaded v9.0.1 of Firefox and installed it. I now have the older looking google home page and it still has the message that I am not using the latest version and need to update. I went through the process of updating again and still have the old looking home page with the message to update. What do I need to do to fix this? Is this not really your Firefox? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Firefox updated as I wanted. Now every I reopen the application is goes through the loading/updating screen before opening Firefox. When it does open the Firefox Update page loads. I've have cleared out everything (cache, logins, history, etc.) It will not stop. I hesitate uninstalling and re-installing as it doesn't always re-import past settings, bookmarks, etc. Love this browser and all the software you provide.
