The problems with it are escalating. I would like to reinstall v10 perhaps? (Advice?) . AND not lose all the extensions etc. Can I uninstall V11 or just get a new copy of 10 and load over - or try v11 again? I really need to get back to work and my options are to go to another Browser without all my workaday tools..... Hate to go to I.E> and try and import.

There seems to be an unwelcome change to toolbar since I received the updated version of Firefox. I now keep getting the above notice and always a notice asking if I want the site to remember my password. None of this information is wanted/needed for my usage. I tried to follow the directions to change preferences, but nothing that shows up on those directions has solved the problems.

The following error comes up when I try to install the updated Firefox: "The operation can’t be completed because some items had to be skipped. For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure “Locked” is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again."

When I follow the instructions in the error message, it shows that my user name has read and write access. There are a couple other items that are read only. I tried to change this to read and write, but the Sharing and Permissions options are greyed out and will not let me change them. What is the work around for this? I would really like to install the new firefox.

Thanks.

I can use Alt+D to get to the Location Bar to type in a URL, but is there a way I can then go to the default text box, to enter data, once the search engine page has been opened, by using a short-cut key? I didn't recognize any of the commands in the Shortcut Keys page as being what I want.

But also on a lot of other sites, which is why I didn't put my question at specific sites crashing. "Igoogle" seems to be missing all the boxes I added. Facebook has everything scrunched up on the left half-in half-out but what there is also looks unrendered. But forums and many other sites also look weird.

I removed adblock, reinstalled firefox. Basic page style is off. All preferences deleted.

This happened just after I installed CCleaner and it installed Chrome because I forgot to uncheck the box or something. Don't know what else it did.

My java is up to date. My only antivirus is MSE.

Anyone know what's going on?

I recently installed Flash Player to preview an FLV file that I put on my website. I can't remember if the problem started after that installation.

Hi FireFox support, We are developing a web application with javascript, we use firefox as our default browser for our users.

Now we met a problem when we use window.open in our application.

In our application, we need to open new page in a new browser tab, we used code : window.open('http://ourUrl.com', '_blank');

The action of the browser is different according when this line of code is executed.

situation1: user clicked a button, the click event will trigger our js function, in this function, execute this line of code directly, then the browser may open the page in a new browser tab. (this is what we wanted.)

situation2: user clicked a button, we firstly submit the data on page to our server, and in the callback function, we execute this line of code, it may pop an independent new window without tool bar.(this is not what we wanted).

I don't understand why the action of browser is different, can you help to explain? Thanks.
