I cannot open any local files or folders in Firefox.

I have tried opening the following file types in Firefox: htm, html, txt, pdf, xpi.

I have tried opening files in the following ways: -Drag drop onto Firefox from windows explorer -Right click file in windows explorer and open with Firefox -Double click files that would be opened in Firefox by default -"Open file" from Firefox file menu

I have experienced this problem in Firefox 3.x and Firefox 4.0. When I try to open a file in Firefox it creates a new tab with the file's path in the address bar but the file does not open.

Any idea what could be going wrong?

thanks Rob

After downloaded the new FF4, they had a layout showing the new look of FF and where everything was moved to. On their layout is shows the tabs under the Firefox menu (button). It would show more of the persona if it was like this, but after downloading the new version and opening FF the tabs are beside the Firefox menu, bunching everything at the top and not leaving much room to show off our great persona's we downloaded. Does anyone know if this can be fixed in options or by and add on?

The Manage Bookmarks option is no longer shown when I click on Bookmarks in the Navigation Toolbar. I have just found out that by opening the sidebar I can move a folder manually while holding the Command key. However, the Manage Bookmarks option was much more convenient. Can you put it back?

Yesterday, no videos would appear for me: Youtube, Hulu, you name it. Youtube videos still autoplay the audio, but the player does not appear. Clicking on where it should be does nothing, and right-clicking does not give a menu. The videos work fine in IE.

I am using Windows 7 64-bit, Firefox 4.0.1, flash version 10.2.159.1. I have tried disabling Adblock Plus. I have repeatedly tried reinstalling Flash Player with reboots. I have tried disabling all plugins except the Shockwave Flash plugin. I have looked on Adobe's support and found nothing helpful.

Thank you for your help.

If not is there any other way to access favourites without having to close Firefox?

Thank you in advance. I upgraded to firefox 4, and since then I have had a problem. When opening a new tab I have chosen to be directed to google.com. In the past my cursor automatically went to the search bar on that page when I open a new tab. After upgrading the cursor just stays in the address bar, but I would like it to automatically move to the google search bar on the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks again.

I really don't like the new version of Firefox, when are they going to change it back? The idea for this layout is worse than mircosofts Vista mistake.

It's not that I don't like change, in fact I love it. However, the way tabs open and new windows open needs to go back to the original format. Sure it's a fancy transition but it is more annoying than nice. I never complain about things like this, in fact this will be my first ever complaint about a browser, I quit using explorer, and it looks like I'm going to start again until they change the format of this upgrade. I will not get use to it, I refuse to and everyone else I know feels the same way.

When I was using Internet Explorer, the browser allowed me to export my favorites into a text file that I could attach to an email, or just keep. This made sure that if the program ever crashed or those kinds of things were lost, I would always have all of my favorites that I could then import again if necessary. I was just wondering if that feature occurs on the Firefox browser. If it doesn't, will I ever lose my bookmarks? How can I ensure that I don't have to remember all of my favorites off the top of my head?

I downloaded Firefox 4 on to both my desktop (XP) & laptop (Win7). On the laptop the tabs are a bright color, including the tabs that are not open. On my desktop, they are a dark color and the unopened tabs are difficult to read.

T tried going to Tools/options/content/colr and changing the background but that doesn't work, even if I close FF and reopen it.

Any guidance would be appreciate.
