Hi,

I am using latest version of Firefox with few Tab Groups extension. I have following problem - I have several tabs open and grouped. When I close tab from group a I am moved immediately to latest opened tab in group b.

Looks like Firefox returns me to latest opened tab in order - can this behaviour be changed to stay on current group of tabs?

Best Regards Wojciech

Frequent updates to latest version, non-beta, require enabling all add-ons. Help me keep my Firefox browser!

Every day, multiple times a day, every time I open Firefox (latest updated version 45., non-Beta), multiple tabs open for every single one of my add-ons, prompting me to manually update them. For each update, I must go through a two- or three-step process, pushing a button twice if no restart is required, three times if it is. To say the least, this is driving me up the wall. Sadly, I have yet to find a solution on the support forum. I am a long-time Mozilla devotee. I believe in Mozilla and Firefox, and prefer this non-profit, community-driven product to any commercially-driven alternative -- hands-down. But this constant updating of add-ons is making my Firefox browsing life simply untenable. I cannot continue to do this. Can anyone give me guidance on a way out? I would so love to NOT have to switch to a different browser. Many thanks in advance to this amazing global community.

When I click on email link, I get several options to try for the purpose of sending a link. When I click on one of them, one of two things will happen. Either the link page will immediately close without even giving me much opportunity to select a potential email means or, if I get to select one, I try to set it up and get an error code. Sorry but I didn't record the code.

Let me try again:

First: I'm running Windows 10 and have the LATEST Firefox ver. 45.0.2. I HAVE read through the support forum and have not found a response that addresses the issue(s) I'm having. IF YOU RESPOND, PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE MESSAGE FIRST so you know all of the steps that I have *already* taken.

Second: Firefox is not saving login and password information on this computer (this has been ongoing for months).

Third: Firefox is not Sync-ing login and password information with my Firefox account. Also, it periodically loses the Sync connection and I have to re-enter my password. (I also have a Win XP computer running Firefox ver. 45.0.2 that has never had a problem retaining login and password information.)

Fourth: BOTH of my computers have Firefox setup IDENTICALLY--all the same settings, both are logged in to the Firefox account.

Fifth: Both of my computers ARE Sync-ing all other data (bookmarks, extensions, etc.--all of the check boxes in Settings are "on").

Sixth: I have reinstalled Firefox on both computers. I have quadruple checked that all of the settings are the same. The ONLY thing I haven't done is a complete uninstall of Firefox on the Win 10 computer (all files--exe, data, profile info, everything). I really loathe the simple, nuclear option "necessary step" so often given to solve any problem, whether or not it really needs a sledge hammer when a tack hammer would do fine. Know what I mean?

So, finally, PLEASE help!

When I go to this website http://www.foxnews.com/ it keeps returning back to the very top of the main web page instead of returning to where I left off on the main page after I click on a news article to read it and then go back after reading it. This causes me to have to scroll back down the main page to find where I was. This is very aggravating to keep doing. This is the only website this is happening on. Troubleshooting done as follows: cache cleared, add on's disabled and restarted and still happens, computer restarted and still happens, safe mode tried and still happens, Firefox refreshed and still happens. I have tried this website on IE11 and it works fine by returning to the part of the webpage where I was.

Thanks

I would really appreciate some assistance on this matter as some of my previous requests have been minimally answered and then completely ignored, or ignored from the onset. I would also appreciate an email to my inbox letting me know that someone has had the courtesy to answer my question, or ask for more clarification, and provide me with a reasonable solution to clear this matter up.

I have an HP Pavillon, Juno email and Firefox is my default browser, At some point while accessing my email I will get the "unresponsive script" error and although it gives my options to continue, debug or close, none of it works and computer freezes. So I have to go to Task Manager and close everything down and start over. Very frustrating. It has also happened when I have been on other websites or with Internet Explorer. HP has tried fixing it, Juno has tried ....all to no avail. I've tried refresh, done many virus/malware scans, etc. It seems to me there is a plug-in or an add-in or some box somewhere not checked. Any ideas?

I first clicked on this link to opt-out of their adverts, but since then, for several weeks now, every time I open Firefox on my chosen Home Page, it also opens a tab for this site. I have written to them several times but get nothing but a boiler-plate answer telling me how to opt out of their adverts. Any help would be appreciated.
