I think the title explains it all. I can no longer open links in a new tab by "ctrl + left clicking" them. As someone who has a lot of tabs up a lot of the time, this is horribly inconvenient.

Early this week, Firefox stopped loading videos and audio. I have done all the plugin updates, disabled extensions and added them back, and everything else suggested on "Fix common audio and video issues". In troubleshooting information under graphics, this appears several times: "Blocked for your graphics driver version. Try updating your graphics driver to version 10.6 or newer." ATI's latest version is 8.9 so I can't figure out what graphic driver I am supposed to update.I downloaded the latest from the AMD website. When I try to update the driver through Windows device manager, it says I already have the most current driver. Please help.

When I try to use the in-browser Add-ons Manager, I can never progress beyond the "Loading..." phase. I still have the Download, Search and Options available. I have waited 5-10 minutes to see if the loading finishes. So far, it has not. I do not remember what theme I am running. The only add-ons I remember are NoScript, KeyScrambler, and Privacychoice. All my add-ons and themese should be up-to-date as of 8/31/2011.

When I close Firefox, the window closes but the Firefox.exe process and Plug-in Container remain running in the background and have to be shut down using Windows Task Manager.

This happens frequently. Something in Firefox continues to run even when the program is closed. The process has to be stopped before I can open Firefox again.

Why do I have to use bookmarks to then move the URLS into my own created folders?? Why can't I just add the URL directly to my folder?

Here is my issue, I create folders on my bar to organize my sites - I can't find a way to directly add urls to my folders. Only way I see is: I first have to bookmark the site, then go into Bookmarks, then move the site into my folder. This is a waste of time to me and inefficient. I like FireFox but with Safari I can add the site directly into my folder. Why would I want to add more steps? Am I missing something?

The bank page appears blank with the text "Firefox prevented this page from automatically redirecting to another page". I must then click on "allow" to work through a series of blank pages before reaching the bank page itself.

Well I read a sollution to my problem but I can't locate the lead to the sollutions for this 'not responding' occuring status of my program. And I connot remember any of them cause I hardly read the options to solve my problem.

One suggestion was about FirFox saving documents of recovery or so and that certain documents should be deleted, but I don't know which ones. And this was only one of the suggestions to solve my program's problem.

Thank you for any lead.

I recently downloaded Firefox 6, and Facebook was working fine but all of a sudden yesterday it started loading all content down the center column instead of on the left & right side. I noticed on their Help wall, that others are having the same problem - I tried clearing the cookies & cache but this did not help. Also, my facebook profiles on other browsers are using FF 6 and are loading just fine. Any ideas?

A SSL bug with the Firefox 6.0.1

I just upgraded to Firefox 6.0.1 and Firefox now says that the website https://www.focusireland.ie is not trusted because because no issuer chain was provided. There is no problem with the SSL Cert (you can check the site URL here - http://www.digicert.com/help/) so why has this error suddenly shown up? I have made no changes to the site and the Cert is valid for another year. It used to work perfectly with no error message but now it shows the error. I know that I can make an exception on my browser but this makes the site look unsecure for any other users. It is a major problem as this site is for a large Registered Irish Charity and it will have a big impact on donations.

This site works perfectly on all other browsers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank You!
