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!!

Every time I open a new tab it defaults to Yahoo search engine page. I hate this. I want a BLANK page as in earlier versions of firefox, or I want ability to customize tab (set website of my choice). How can I remove Yahoo from being the default page when I open a new TAB, and set my default tab website of choice.

Does yahoo own Firefox? If so I will install another browser all together.

Is there a replacement?

Firefox automatically starts itself on start-up every time. I don't want it to. If I want it on, I'll click on it. I don't go on the internet every single time I start up my computer and don't like having to WAIT for it to start up so I can quit it. I don't know why it does this - never did before - and it is EXTREMELY annoying! HELP! I'm on a Macintosh operating with Tiger OS.

I see that there is a keyboard shortcut for switching tabs within a Firefox browser window, but I'd also like one for switching between browser windows. I imagine this is easier on Windows, where each browser window sort of behaves as a separate application, but on the Mac OS an application can own several windows. Thus, the OS doesn't provide support for switching between browser windows via a keyboard shortcut; it can just switch between applications, which brings all of the target application's windows to the front.

I go to the login page for gmail - it doesn't matter how I get there, via bookmark or not - the page always appears with my username and password already filled in. Issues (a) this isn't secure, anyone could sign in as me simply by hitting 'return' (b) other users in the house have to backspace my details away in order to enter their own.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox - no use. How do I get gmail's login page to open with blanks username and password boxes?

thanks in avance for any advice!

I've been trying to connect to a FTP server using WinSCP, but the server just won't allow it, despite me having the right login informations and all.

I tryed it on Firefox, and I could connect and see the files just fine. The problem is, Firefox doesn't do uploads and file edits.

My guess is that the problem comes from me selecting the wrong port to connect with on WinSCP.

To test my theory, I wanted to check which port Firefox was using to connect to the server. But I searched in every menu option (I think) but didn't find the info I wanted.

Any ideas on how to find it ?

Is there a way I can delete a security exception that I added? I tried to order from a website whose security certificate had expired, and I decided to add the exception on my laptop, and then wasn't able to order from the site anyway. I've not had any problems with my laptop, but I would feel better if I knew the exception had been deleted. I wasn't sure which menu I needed to use to delete it, if it's even possible. I have no idea why I thought adding the exception was a good idea in the first place, because now I'm just paranoid. Thanks!!

EDIT: The operating system on my laptop is Windows 7, if that helps. Thanks again!
