I never save passwords - never have, never will. Using evil IE, Gmail works correctly in that it prompts me for ID and password for each new browser instance. Yet when I open gmail with FF, it goes straight to my inbox without prompting for ID or password. I use gmail in "always secure" mode. Cookies are enabled, of course, just did not expect my password to be saved and loaded from a cookie. How can I rectify this problem?

Previously, the icons for add-ons (e.g., noscript, the weather, or reminders) were displayed at the bottom of my screen, and I could click on them to perform the relevant function. Now they are not displayed, and I don't know how to get them back. I'm particularly interested in getting back noscript, as I almost always use it, but I regularly accessed a lot of add-ons from the now-missing information bar. I don't even know what this information/icon bar/display is called.

Locked due to age. If you still have a problem, please start a new thread

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.

About an hour ago, my keyboard layout changed (but only when using firefox) so that, for example, Shift+2 no longer produces @, but rather double quotes ("). Also, pressing the [ key now produces nothing, but the next key I hit after it will produce a hat. Example, the [ key and a g will give ^g. There are other peculiarities, such as the / key now shows é, and a few others.

Everything I check on the internet seems to be telling me the problem lies in my keyboard layout settings in Windows, and possibly having to press LeftAlt+LeftShift (or just Alt+Shift) to readjust them, or bringing up the language bar, etc. But all of my efforts to fix language indicate to me that I'm currently operating with a US keyboard layout (which is what it`s supposed to be), and again, this ONLY happens in firefox and no other programs.

Any ideas?

Ok, random tabs open in Firefox often enough to really get annoying. I don't want to switch back to IE (ew), but I will if I can't fix this. Normally, it's a Google ad that opens, but today, a site for adult products opened. I have a 13 yr. old daughter who does NOT need to see this.

Here's what I've done to try to correct this problem so far...

-I've un-installed and re-installed Firefox at leas 4 times -I've run Malware Bytes Anti-Malware, Ad-Ware, AVG scans and Super Anti Sypware...multiple times -I've deleted and replaced the dll file WS2_2.dll with a new one -I've re-configured add-ons according to another support site.

Anyone got any better ideas? I really don't want to go back to IE! Please help!!
