I reinstalled firefox recently and now every time I click a link it opens in a new tab instead of in the same tab. I would rather change it so it opens in a new tab only if I tell it to but for some reason that option is no longer in the options tab. How do I disable this function in the newer firefox?

On YouTube and other Flash based video sites, Flash drops a huge number of frames, making playback very choppy even with the smallest resolution (360, 480). This doesn't happen with IE, not even while using the highest resolution (720, 1080) available. I know my computer is more than powerful enough to play back full HD, even without hardware acceleration. Is this Firefox's fault or Flashes and is there anything I can do about it?

When updating windows 7 I get the following response: Windows could not search for updates An error occurred while checking for updates for your computer error(s) found code 80072ee2 windows encountered an unknown error

click here to     get help with this error

When I do this - get help - the "fix" doesn't fix it and I eventually come back to this same window

The last time I was able to update windows 7 was in December 2011.

This same problem has happened before but the "fix" fixed it some time.

I get the same error when I open internet explorer.

Remove AVG Search from Address Bar

I've seen a few posts about the AVG 2012 Search, but none match what I'm looking for.

My homepage is set to google.ca, and my quick search toolbar is set to google as well with all other search engines removed.

I didn't have this problem before until yesterday when I formatted my computer and re-installed everything.

If I type in the address bar terms to search, hit enter, it use to come up with a Google results page. Now when I type up there, hit enter I get an AVG secure search page powered by Google, and the address bar icon changes from a Google logo to AVG.

Only if I type in the address bar. When I open a new tab the cursor always defaults into the address window not the google search page so, always forget to click into the google page and type. In any case, if I search with the google search bar or on the google webpage it's fine, it's just if I type in the address bar and hit enter that I get this http://isearch.avg.com page.

Anyway to switch it back to google?

It only recently started happening, but when I run a search on Google the links provided send me to ad sites and non-recognized search engines.

Searches ran through the Mozilla search bar at top right of browser are unaffected, it's only when running a search through Google.com. Going directly to a site's URL is also not affected.

I ran a malware check, and deleted affected files, but it is still occurring. Any ideas?

I always use Firefox on my secondary monitor. When I close and re-start Firefox, it opens on the primary monitor. All other applications don't show this behavior.

It seems Firefox is forcing itself to the primary monitor. Default Windows behavior is for an application not to move itself around, and then window position and monitor is remembered by Windows.

A month or two ago I started having the issue where Firefox closes itself. It happens a couple times a day and seems to be totally random. Sometimes I'm clicking on something, sometimes I come back to me PC and it has closed while I'm gone.

I have always allowed the automatic updates so I think it's version related where at some point a new version introduced this behavior.

I stopped briefly when I upgraded to version 10.0, at that point it worked without closing for several days (a first). Now it upgraded to version 10.0.1 and it is closing again.

Is there a way to see why it is closing and is anyone else reporting this issue? This is my corporate PC and we run Windows updates weekly so I am current on those updates.

I have been receiving the error "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at..." for a URL that works fine in Firefox on a Windows 2000 PC Cable connected to the router but the Firefox on the Windows XP PC Wireless connected gives the error for the same router.

McAfee Firewall 'Net Guard' on the XP PC was the issue. I changed Action - 'Block' to 'Allow' for the IP address and now both PCs can access the site.
