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.

How to know which port Firefox is connecting to a website with ?

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 ?

When I search for a word using the Find bar, Firefox does not highlight all the hits on the page. (Sometimes it highlights some.)

It apparently sees the hits, because it jumps to each one as I click Next. But it doesn't highlight the hits. I can't see what Firefox has found.

I fear this is a Windows 7 issue (I am not a Win7 fan).

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!!

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.

Running Firefox 3.6.10 Suddenly the Tools menu contains only a couple of options and sometimes opens blank. I seem to remember being able to click Options to set my tabs as the current addresses. Obviously I cannot do this now. The problem seems to have occurred having downloaded some software which included Google Chrome (which I didn't want, incidentally). I have since removed this software. I have tried re-starting the computer. I tried re-installing Firefox on top of the existing one. How can I return the Tools menu to how it was? If I remove Firefox from my computer and do a clean install, will I be able to retain all my bookmarks and tab settings? Or is there an easier way?!
