After doing a search, I will click on suggested websites. It will start to load, then will redirect me to another site that generally has nothing to do with the original search.

There is a cursor which flashes in the HTML in pages, in parts where it's not an input field, it's there for people with reading/accessability issues, but I don't know how to disable it? It causes major problems on, for example a long Facebook page, when you press an arrow key instead of scrolling the page it goes all the way to where the cursor is?

When I go to my Page Setup dialog box, in Margins tabs, I see that I can specify the margins in inches. However, in my friends PCs, I have seen Page Setup dialog boxes that use millimeters for handling margins.

How can I make my version of Firefox to use millimeters instead of inches? Using this obscure unit is inconvenient for me. I prefer to use the internationally-accepted metric unit.

Quando acesso o Gerenciador de Complementos, e clico em atualizar plugins, abre na mesma hora um site. Este site provavelmente deveria exibir os plugins que eu tenho disponível para instalar, mais a página aparece vázia. Tem conteúdo, mais não aparece nenhum plugin :S

A página que é aberta é: https://www.mozilla.com/pt-BR/plugincheck/

Mesmo se não houvesse nenhum plugin a ser atualizado, deveria ser avisado com uma mensagem do tipo: "Não existe nenhum plugin a ser atualizado".


Acredito que este seja um bug, estou correto?


Obrigado, Anderson Ferreira

When I click on certain links such as the "advertise" link on the Google homepage a new tab is created. The tab is blank and titled (in this case) ads_3.html (GIF Image, 1x1 pixels). I've been noticing that this is occurring more frequently. When I try the same links in Explorer (yuck!) they work just fine. I've tried disabling the add-ons and even ended up reinstalling Firefox with no luck.

Getting annoyed with "Your Firefox Browser is out of date" notification that hijacks the browser page every time I open Firefox. If I wanted to update I would! I do not want to update. I want to remain on the version I have so HOW DO I STOP the annoying notification alert every time I open a browser window ...to which I have been selecting. "No thanks, I will risk it". I do not want this box popping up anymore. It seems like a bullying form of forcing something on someone.

Thanks

I have MSN as my homepage. When I opened hotmail in the past, it would open a new tab right below the toolbar - (you only have one session open). Now, when I go to open hotmail, it opens a new session instead of opening a new tab. Before, I would have tabs like: MSN, live hotmail, Google, etc. It's obvious that I invoked a command to do this and now I don't know how to revers this.
