If I have opened up a link and it comes up as a separate window and not a tab, then I go to close that window, all the other Firefox windows that are open will close too. Is there anything to prevent this? It is extremely annoying when I have to go and open all the windows/tabs again!

When clicking external links (from Emails, Twitter Client, Messenger/Skype windows), if Firefox is closed it will open two windows; One with my homepage and a second with the actual link. However, if firefox is open, the external link will just open in a new tab as instructed.

It was reported a while back (https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/560561?s=clicking%20external%20link%20opens%20up%20two%20windows&as=q) however, the questions seems to be 'solved' with someone saying they have the same problem.

When using "firstview.com" and scrolling through pictures, I wish to return to my initial viewing page. I use the "go back" button and am able to return 30 or so pages, and then it does not allow further "go back." Can I increase or eliminate the limit on the capacity to go back using the go back button?

When I go to http://www.kcrg.com/sports/fish and try to play the video of the weekly feature "Big Ol' Fish" the video won't load. Why does the place where the video should load keep flashing and the animation looks like the video is loading, but nothing else ever happens? Is this video set up to load only with Internet Explorer, or do I need another plug-in? Which one? I have many of them and haven't had trouble playing any other videos. I don't understand these things, so I need a simple explanation. Thanks.
