I don't want the option to mute the tabs at all. I just simply want to switch to the tab when I click on it.

In our domain we have different user languages. Windows adapts it's gui depending on the username they login with. We have configured Firefox settings through GPO's and build a pakcage with the FF GPO add-in included, with also the 5 different language packs included we use in our domain. We can switch manually the GUI language, but we are looking for a way to automate this, depending on the profile language. I know we can change the user.js file, but I was wondering if there is a way to automate this through GPO's. Something like a variable we can place in the general.useragent.locale that looks for the sytem language? Or another way to automate this?

Normally, when Firefox encounters a link with a pseudo-protocol that it doesn't know how to process (such as iTunes store links, which Apple only wants you to open with iTunes), usually Firefox puts up a "Launch Application" dialog each time, which allows the user to choose a program to use for the URL (or, for the way I usually use this dialog, to cancel the attempt to act on the URL completely) - unless you check the "Remember my choice" option, in which case it will stop asking, but put an entry on the Applications page of the Options dialog, in case you want to change the chosen action in the future. However, in the case of the new Windows store URLs, I don't get that dialog and I don't have an entry in the Options; I automatically get thrown off the Desktop and into the Windows store app every time, with no obvious way to change this behavior. What's different about these URLs (or about Firefox's reaction to them) that won't allow me to modify or abort this action?

I recently downloaded PowerISO and it changed my search engine to Bing. It did not install any program or plugin that I can plainly see. When I go to control panel and "Uninstall or change programs" I don't see a Bing, nor do I see a plug-in or extension on Firefox. I was able to change my homepage back to Google, but now Firefox always searches through Bing whenever I open a new tab.

So, my main tab works fine, but all my tabs automatically search through Bing. How do I fix this?

I decided to try my hand at creating a theme. I filled out all of the forms, uploaded the images (that were the appropriate sizes), selected the colors, was happy with the preview and clicked 'Submit'. The following screen said, "Oops! You are trying to do something that you are not allowed to do." I clicked the back button and re-tried, then received the error message that the theme name was already taken. I re-named it, re-submitted and went back to the 'oops' screen. This cycle repeated no less than 20 times. I tried theme names that were so off the wall, there's no way that all of them were taken. I think that it was failing due to whatever error it was encountering.

I don't have (nor want) shockwave flash, but it shows that I do in the addons. In addons it shows shockwave flash 12.0.0.44.

How can I be sure it is only flash player and not shockwave flash?

I triple checked that where I update at adobe.com is the proper place for flash player, and I have the correct version, but I don't believe it ever showed as shockwave flash in addons.

I read that there is a critical update for shockwave flash, which wouldn't concern me, except I noticed the addon shows as schockwave flash.

Is this a bug in how firefox shows flash?

Thanks for your help!
