We've a new software which always opens a pop-up window when clicking on the Java links. The content of such a re-sizable window perfectly fits into a new tab. I'd like to force those new windows into a new tab. Pop-up blocker is active and that internal site is in the exception list. So it would be nice to have an option field for that in the general settings or in the Pop-up blocker settings. This is no bug, but could be a new feature of Firefox (like in IE). Thanks &

Kind regards, Peter Marbler

The download pop-up window save or cancel. At save the download begins with the download window monitoring the download. When the download is finished the right-click option is not accessible for "open". Double clicking the download does not open it. The file is not saving in the specified "Downloads" folder that I have selected in the options window. I just bought a DVD Decoder downloaded it and now I have to open it or I have to buy it again. Is there someway I can open the file? Mozilla 3.6.8 did not allow the Troubleshooter 1.1.a

I have been using Firefox since you guys started & never had a problem till now. I cannot save any images from any website no matter what the type & it is only happening on Firefox & it started when I upgrade to Ver. 20 which by the way I HATE....I prefer the older version so I loaded that back onto my computer BUT THE PROBLEM IS STILL THERE. It is only happening on FIREFOX cause I downloaded these images using Internet Explorer which actually is easier now to use than your new Ver. 20.......

Anyway if I click on image & then "save as" & tell it where to download....it goes through the process & even shows up in the download window like it has downloaded....but if you click on the download window to see the image...nothing happens.....if you go to the file where you downloaded the image to, the file is NOT there??????? Now like I said this started after it updated to version 20...I now have Version 3.6.8 loaded....cause I do not want this new version 20....I am an old man, I have Windows Vista Ultimate on my desktop.....and I do not like the layout of 20 & it is very hard to do anything....anyway can you TELL ME PLSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS what is going on & why did this all happen & the big thing.....HOW THE HECK DO I FIX IT PLSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.......

thank you...William

The link connects to my G drive and it should open up a folder for me to store things on my hard drive. This works on IE although I usually use firefox at home so I changed my browser at work. Can you tell me how to make these links work so that i can use a website online that will connect to my offline folders?

Would appreciate it very much.

hai. i need help. and just for heads up, i;m not computer/tech savvy.

i dont remember when this problem was started (maybe around 2 or 3 months ago) but everytime i opened some sites, the page displayed for a while then it reload itself and shown a blank page. the link is still the same with the link i tried to access, it just keep loading and shown blank page till it stop loading. refreshing the page wont help. usually i need to click 'Back' then while it shown the page i click 'X' to stop the page loading, so i can see the page.

but if i need to download files, stopping the page wont make me able to downloaded the files since the page didnt fully loaded.

the websites i encountered this was (so far) :

- Indowebster (download page)

- wiki.d-addicts.com (a wikipedia kind of page)

- photobucket (just encountered this today)

- and 1 or 2 other sites, i forgot.

but i can access all those sites just fine with IE. I also able to access it in Mozilla thru my work computer. at first this dint really bother me as i can just click 'stop loading page' or found another download sites for downloading. but as today i experienced it with photobucket 9which as far as i know didnt happened before) it made me worry that soon i would experiencing this with another sites too.

editted to add info :

i already clear cache and cookies. also disable all extensions in my add-ons. from some discussion page, many of them found that this was caused by Real-Player. i have uninstalled Real Player and have disabled the Real Player Plugins long before this problem occured. so i dont think Real Player was the caused.

I use a (dilapidated) Mac, and a couple weeks or so ago I was having issues with the history while using Firefox (back button didn't work, most noticably). I remember finding a fix, something about renaming a file. Only now have I noticed that my extensive bookmark collection is kaput. As directed by Firefox troubleshooting and other Google searches, I attempted to restore from all of the dates on file in Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/~/bookmarkbackups, but none of them restored a single bookmark. Do I have any other options?

Problem: All tabs/websites return a "Server not found" error message. History: I updated Ubuntu today 8-10-12 to 10.04.4 LTS kernel 2.6.32-42. I assume that an update of Firefox came with the Ubuntu update. Troubleshooting Information says that I am using Firefox version 14.0.1. The desktop with the updated Ubuntu is connected to a DSL modem which in turn is connected to the phoneline in. There are no filters, no other computers, no routers, and no phone connected to this line. When I disconnected the desktop from the modem and connected the laptop in its place, internet access was okay. The laptop runs older versions of Ubuntu and Firefox. This means that the problem is not in the line or the modem or the ISP. I am posting this question using the laptop, so any system information retrieved automatically is about the wrong computer, operating system, and version of Firefox. I copied the correct information from the malfunctioning desktop to the Troubleshooting Information box below. I tried all of the Help suggestions that I could find during three hours of attempts to solve this problem, but they all blame a firewall that I can't find in Ubuntu. Thanks for any help!

Firefox window is stuck as maximized, the restore down function does not work correctly.

"restore down" minimizes the window & it won't then return to the screen unless I right click on it on the task bar & then click maximize.

The minimize button works as it should & the window can be restored (maximised) by clicking on Firefox in teh task bar.

When this first happened I closed Firefox & restarted Windows (Vista). This has not solved the problem
