I want to prevent pop ups, pop unders, etc. Literally not one answer was appropriate, so I am rephrasing the question. I want firefox to simply not even acknowledge the request to open ANY new window or tab from the html code, website, server etc. I don't even want it to alert me that is hasn't acknowledged the request to open a new window or tab. I don't EVER want to see a firefox window or tab or instance that I haven't directly caused via mouse or keyboard input, and I want it to be COMPLETELY transparent. How do I do that? (I don't care if the answer is long or technical.)

Hello I´m having problems with MP4 files on windows XP it´s weird it looks to me as I am missing some codec because in windows 7 in the same computer works fine. The problem is mainly in sites that only have the MP4 option like VINE... the native firefox player wont load so it will default to the flash player ... Flash player loads and all the controls load as well but something looks weird a message displays saying the video could not be loaded... and if I press play nothing happens

I had Java 7 update 10, which has the 0-day exploit. Oracle released Java 7 update 11. I installed that and uninstalled Java 7 update 10. Now I can't get Firefox to recognize Java. It tells me that Java needs to be installed, but when I try to install the plug in (Java has been installed twice now), it fails. Now I have no Java.

I used to be able to change zoom using ctrl_scroll and it worked fine (to fit whole page on one screen with no scroll bars). Now, even after I do that, as soon as I go to a new site or change folders in gmail, it keep reverting back to a default zoom making the page too big to fit on one screen. It is particularly annoying with gmail..

It saves space to have icons rather than the page description.

I need to import passwords from an old version of Firefox (3..0.5) into version 28.0. I have read the other threads, but they refer to signons.sqlite which I do not have, instead there is a signons3.txt (which does appear to contain valid details but with encrypted names/passwords. I do have a key3.db however. What would be the best way to import them, preferably without uninstalling V28, installing 3.0.5, porting the necessary files, then upgrading repeatedly until the signons.sqlite is created?

I want to reverse, undo, prevent, disable or even remove the following (see link below), WITHOUT having to change versions, or update actual plugins:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/why-do-i-have-click-activate-plugins

I repeat, WITHOUT having to change my Firefox version, change the plugin version, or UPDATE versions on either.

I want Firefox to quit bugging me about having to ACTIVATE a DEACTIVATED plugin.

I DO NOT want to UPDATE VERSIONS of plugins or the browser and I DO NOT want to have to "click to activate plugins."

It seems that Firefox collaborates with plugins to determine if the vendor has put out a new update. If there is a new update, Firefox inconveniences me.

I keep having a script run when I am playing Face Book games Especially Battle Pirates and it freezes everything. What can i do to stop it? Or fix it so it dosen't freeze my game?

This script runs over and over while I am playing Battle Pirates. Every time it runs it freezes the darn game and I have to click and click on the screen before a box pops up with a long string and asks if I want to stop the string. This is what it says:

"A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete."

" Script:http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php/...tS5XVSwP/ks:42 "

What is this and dose it need to run or is it a hacker messing with me and my FF browser ?

When I'm in the middle of a battle screen and it freezes it messes me up. If I am in full screen when it freezes it throws me to another open Browser tab or out of full screen if i don't have another open.

What is this? Something to do with FaceBook? A Hacker ? A BP game glitch. please help. This is driving me crazy. Imagine being in the middle of the best part of a BP battle and freeze.... then click click click i go and zoom to another open window away from the battle so i no longer have a view of the fight let alone control it or boom to non full screen and 1/2 the screen is obscured.

It just happened again while I was typing this request for help. I have a window open with BP also and it took me there. HELP

I often use the shortcut Alt FWF to create new directories on Windows.

When FF 15 is set as default it alters the File New menu from Windows Explorer.

It inserts a "Firefox HTML document" item.

This item seems to sabotage the above key combination. It intercepts the last F.

In addition I object to the naming which is plain wrong, for me.

I have deleted the registry key that inserts this thing. Unfortunately it re-appears.

I want to stop this behaviour.

How do I kill this. (Other than by making another browser the default.)
