What the hell happened? Today I noticed that the links provided by Google search no longer work. If I click a link offered by google search, nothing happens! The same screen is presented. I tested it with both Firefox 10 and Firefox 6. Same result. Only the google previews are available, but the links to the actual source are not clickable.

I also tried the exact same search with IE, and I'm sad to say that the problem is not with Google.

Deactivating Adblock did not change this anomaly.

Trying to view & check Add-ons using Add-ons Manger as follows: Tools - Add-ons which results in new tab opening, but all that is displayed is the Loading Icon with the timer animation. I have now left it running for over 45 minutes prior to writing this information. The problem was also evident after the upgrade from Version 4 to Version 5 earlier this year.

Even after clearing the history (FireFox 6.0.2) the history sidebar still contains all of a friends history.

After deleting each item individually, and telling it to forget each site, they all come back again.

I don't care for firefox updates, trying to be bigger and better than the competition, I get it. However, each update is 100% incompatible with Java and in case the individuals who collaborate and makes such updates are unaware, the entire world wide web uses Java. Why would anyone want to use firefox when they can't even use the internet?

In a prior version of Firefox I found a website somewhere that told me what to do to enable spell checking for text boxes that are just one line. I got used to being able to send an e-mail with a Subject Line that didn't have a misspelling. Now it doesn't work. Please tell me how I can enable that again. I am on a Mac using Firefox 6.0.2. Thanks!

For past month or so, when I view Wikipedia a few other sites, sections of text are displaying in a large, cursive font. I can't find any rhyme or reason to what sections are showing this way. It's not happening on all sites but there are two or three where I'm seeing it. It makes things really hard to read. For a screen capture, see this file I put on YouSendIt YouSendIt.

https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/871548 I suffer from this, the solution to use a bookmark works however I want to know how and what changes prevent the use of the URL Bar for such things.

Sometimes Firefox will respond to it being pasted in the URL Bar and sometimes it won't. there does not seem to be any logic behind it hence my question.

Edit: and just for the sake of it, not really important but how do you make mailto links always open in a new tab?
