I often need to duplicate a tab but I cannot do so quickly in Firefox. I can copy the link, open a new tab and paste the link, but a simple shortcut in the 'right click' menu of the tabs would be nice. IE8 has this feature (Ctrl+K).

I would like to completely disable the "this connection is untrusted dialog." I am an administrator and deal with many intranet sites. It is not cost effective to set an exception for each site. Corporate standards require us to use either IE, or Firefox, and I would prefer not to have to use IE.

To be clear: I am not looking for a solution that lessens the amount of overall clicks, like in browser.ssl override behavor in "about:config" nor am I looking for an Add-on (like "remember certificate exception"). I am looking for a way to remove the "this connection is untrusted" dialog completely.

I have two main printers to use at home and whenever I print a web page, Firefox automatically prints using the non-default printer. If I select the default printer from the drop down list, it works fine. I shouldn't have to select the default printer every time I want to print.

I had my favorite radio station bookmarked and could listen to it live while working on my laptop. For some reason, after updates to Firefox, the listen live component of the bookmark does not work anymore and I cant hear anything. I tried typing in the address manually instead of going through the book mark but that doesn't work either. I can access the website of the radio station but when I click on the "listen live" button it appears to load and does not "buffer" or present the play/pause buttons. Cant hear anything either. If I use Explorer instead, everything works fine.

I receive constant script errors and non-responsive errors using Firefox, as do many of my friends. I am using Facebook and Mafia Wars by Zynga

Here is an example of one:

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://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=508888121:7

I have tried the instructions on this page http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Warning+Unresponsive+script?s=script+errors&as=s

however, I get an error message when I try to access Config and enter: Navigation to the webpage was cancelled

Please help fix this or I'm going to have to use a different browser and I like Firefox better than the other options.

Thank you.

Well here's the screenshot of my problem: http://img177.imageshack.us/img177/7263/flashorsomething.jpg

As you can see preview windows on YouTube don't load. Also - user menu won't show.

I think it's a problem with flash plug-in, since the problem started right after I was updating it (even though I didn't need to I guess). And that leads to another problem; I tried to update it since instead of videos on people's profiles I would get error saying that I got Java Script disabled or old Flash version - it was wrong then, it is wrong now - now, cause it still gives me that error.

I post here, because on Google Chrome YouTube works perfectly fine.

I tried to reinstall flash, didn't help. Some suggestions?

EDIT: Also, now I see that YouTube on Firefox got some basic problems with functionality, like can't view "more" of videos description and so on... eh. It gots to be flash or something.

Before the last update Firefox was wonderful! Now i cannot click a link without it being prevented and having to click allow. My Neopets and Facebook games were working perfectly but now they are not. I use my computer to play and for email and not much else and i would prefer to go back to the way things were before the last update. I know very little about computers ... i just want it back the way it was! Is it possible for someone to tell me, step-by-step in plain and simple language, what i need to do to clear out the last update?

-Good day all,

---My service provider has recently implemented this DNS Redirect to http://dnssearch.rr.com/ . Where I use to type sites I have visted into the address bar (E.G., "eBay" or "hotmail") and it would automatically take me to the said site, the redirect pushed me to a search page, like malware would. Now, after weeks of fighting with cookies and such to OPT OUT of http://dnssearch.rr.com and numerous complaints to my provider, including eMails mentioning how I have opted out umpteen times (it wasn't my cookies, cachet, etc.,), and them forcing the site on me required me adding it to my HOST file and that altering settings on my PC is hacking and tresspassing on private property (I drilled them about all I could think of... after weeks of fighting this new "game" they started) and most important, hijacking, the site is gone and there are no more browser redirects. However,

---The function no longer works when I type a recent site into my address bar. I go straight to www.google.com, which I set as my default search page. How do I get it back?

---It's not plugins or add-ons, these do not apply.

---I have completely uninstalled Firefox (using Revo) and reinstalled and the problem is still there.

browser.fixup.alternate.enabled = false keyword.enabled = true

_edit_:

---Forgot, my Wife's laptop is experiencing the redirect problem. I haven't bothered with it because if it was something I accidentally did to my PC that changed a setting, I wouldn't want to reenact the crime on hers. She enjoys the keyword function as well as I, and it would be instant death if something I did ended her enjoyment.
