Within the last couple days I'm getting the most annoying pop up ads...in the top right hand corner it says "SKIP THIS AD" and you have to click on it to get past it.

I've searched all around the net and I keep reading that this is specific to FireFox. I've tried running my spyware and protection software, all with no help.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit. I've installed the add on called "Ad Blocker Plus" and have added the different suggested filters, all with no help at all.

Can someone please tell me how to COMPLETELY disable these annoying ads. I've been a Firefox user for as long as I can remember...if I don't get this completely sorted out VERY soon I'm going to completely switch over to Safari.

Can anyone help me with this? Please email me if you have any permanent solutions. My contact email is jamcha00@gmail.com

(it's jamcha "zero zero" @ gmail.com)

Thanks in advance everyone!

whenever i try to watch DivX movies through a streaming website, the extension to the movies are .avi files, only these streams cause my firefox to crash. if i would just let the firefox load itself out of the problem, which i have, it never does until i CTRL ALT DELETE it in the end task manager.

streaming worked fine for .avi files before the new firefox update, so will this error be fixed, or is it something else? and if so how do i fix the problem so i can continue to view these movies online?

When checking my gmail and hotmail accounts, the back button fails to return to my previous page. For example, I can click the little down arrow along the right-side of the navigation button and see that Google is let's say five (three, ten, one, seven it doesn't matter) pages down the history list but I cannot get there with the back button in any way, shape or form. I can click all day long and I remain at the same page.

This is a common problem that has been around for awhile (search it yourself) and has not been addressed in any fashion.

1. No, clearing the cache does nothing.

2. No, I have no add-ons or extensions.

3. No, this behavior is not present in Internet Explorer 8 or 9.

4. Yes, I'm running the latest version - 3.6.13.

I would really like to use Firefox but with all the bugs, and this one especially, I'm forced to use IE. A significant reason for using a particular browser is ease of use. You folks may have a more secure browser than IE but at least IE works and doesn't feel like I'm driving over a pothole ridden road.

And nice attempt to discourage forum participation - seriously, can you make it any more cumbersome to post comments?

I have tried looking through all the setting that it gave me and i can not find when it wont let me open a new tab. All the settings i have are the default settings and before it happened i hadn't even been into the setting so its not like i was messing with them and then it messed up it just happened one time. I do not have any viruses or anything because i use 3 different virus scans and they say my computer its clean. Also my virus scanning programs are up to date i updated them today.

ever since my laptop got upgraded to Win 7 x64 , and the latest Firefox was installed , occasionally it downgrades to version 3.16.13 (consistently , always to this release !) . Tried deleting Firefox now several times for brand new install. Successfully , uneventfully installs , works fine for a couple of weeks or days and then downgrades again. When it happens , it pops up a message for a reboot and after reboot the 3.16.13 Firefox starts with a request for upgrade and plug-ins. Otherwise Firefox works fine and I very much prefer it to other browsers. Symantec does not indicate any malware on scans on my laptop. Any comment on reasons why it downgrades or how to diagnose this event , would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have no idea why this suddenly started happening.. every auction on ebay has a box saying "reported web forgery" it does not allow me to read auction details or see pics but all regular ebay graphics show fine. when i click to ignore the message it pops up a box "get me out of here" or "this isn't a web forgery" after clicking "this isn't a web forgery" I get a new browser to report it to mozilla but i still can not view auction info? This is very annoying. and after years of Mozilla use I am almost ready to go back to IE.
