While on Firefox and using Google as the search engine, it randomly opens a separate window asking "You have chosen to open-Search ". I didn't even press any commands or any sort for it to pop out. It's becoming very frustrating as each time I close it and continue to type it appears again.http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/412/firefoxerror.jpg/

When using Firefox to print most documents ( boarding passes, mastercard statements,genealogy documents) the printing only shows on 1/4 of the page, is in the lower left quarter and does not print part of the right side of the information. When I go into Safari and print the same documents within 2 minutes they always print fine. We like Firefox and would prefer to continue to use but if we can't print we will have to use Safari more often

I don't want Firefox to "remember" the folders I've saved in from websites before. How do I return Firefox to its old image saving habits?

I recently got a new computer and upgraded to Firefox 8. Now, when I save an image from a website, Firefox will "remember" and, the next time I save an image, open a random folder that I saved an image in last time I was on that site, and choose to save it there. This wouldn't be a problem if, 1) it wasn't a random folder out of the several I save into, and 2), if I have to cancel out of an image for any reason, the next time I go to save (seconds later, without refreshing/leaving a page), it will have chosen another random folder for me to save in and I'm misplacing my files.

I'd like to return Firefox to the previous image saving habits, where I have to choose the folder each time, and it doesn't "remember" anything that I've done, as it is only causing headaches.

The computer will be used only for online catalog access in my library. I need to remove the location toolbar, but keep the back buttons and home button. If I use Kiosk mode, I don't have the back buttons. I can set it up so that I have the buttons but not the URL, but a user could right click on the menu bar and re-enable the location bar. I need to prevent them from doing that. Thanks!

When I try to start Firefox I get a message saying it's already running but not responding and telling me :"To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." Since it's not running and task manager does not show a running process I obviously can't do that. I have restarted my system several times, all with the same result. I have even tried uninstalling Firefox, downloading it from scratch and installing it again - but the result is still the same.

Recently my weekly virus scans have taken longer and longer. The number of files scanned increased by tens of thousands every week. A carefully crafted search shows that files in the directory C:/Documents and Settings/userxxx/application data/Mozilla/Profiles/....../Cache/ is the probable source of all the now hundreds of thousands of files that my virus scan is encountering. Does anyone know which Mozilla application these files are being created by? Are they important or just temporary 'work' files?

About 50% or more of the time when I click on a link or go to a bookmark or website I get a fail message - Firefox cannot find the server - and have to "Try Again" or reload. This has only started since I got version 8 (I now have 8.0.1)

It does not happen in Chrome - so it does not seem to be my internet connection. But it happens in all versions of Firefox now.

It is getting irritating (5 weeks) to have to load every website twice. They always come up eventually - so it is not the particular websites.
