How do I open a .nrl extension in firefox, currently it returns a string of text instead of opening the file with the default program.

When I click on a .nrl file extension (belongs to Autonomy I-Manage Software) it returns a string of code (what is in the shortcut link) instead of following the link and returning the document. Is there a way to tell Forefox connect to the document that the shortcut is linked to? The .nrl file extension belongs to a piece of software called FileSite (document management system).

Just moved over from IE. On 10.0.2 on W7

One feature I found useful in IE, was that I could enable a 'favotites bar' which mean the most frequently used links were 'nailed up' at top of browser. Can't seem to get that in Firefox 10

I can enable 'Most Visited' but these are not nailed up and keep changing.

When I go to a website, I get a menu of the website (a list down the left-hand side of the page) rather than the home page itself. Using internet explorer, I get to the home page. Why not on Firefox? It just started happening recently

I updated firefox a couple weeks ago, but updating has never caused this problem. I installed a program to help the computer run more efficiently, called "Fix-it Essentials," and that may have caused the problem, though it didn't for the first couple weeks I used it.

So I still can't get to the homepage of many websites and navigate as I want to.

I'm only updating Shockwave Flash because the plugin page says to do it; otherwise I have no problems. The sequence of updating problems I am having is different from that described by others: 1) Checked for plugin updates: Shockwave Flash 11.1 r102 was highlighted as "Vulnerable" with red UPDATE NOW. 2) Clicked on Update Now and was prompted to download Adobe Flash Player 11.1.102.62 (not Shockwave Flash); Ran downloaded .exe file to install; Closed Firefox during install as requested and installation completed. 3) Opened Firefox; Checked plugins and now saw notice that Flash Player version was out-of-date and disabled. 4) As test, played a youtube video; Clicked on prompt at top of screen for "missing plugin"; Update self-executed, requested closing Firefox, and completed installation. 4) Opened Firefox; Checked plugins and once again saw that Shockwave Flash needed UPDATE NOW (as described in #1 above). Adobe Flash Player is not listed anywhere in the plugin list. So now I'm back to where I was before, wondering if I really am vulnerable due to this version of Shockwave Flash.

Just keeps randomly crashing. Crashes when I do things, crashes just sitting on the screen.

Only thing I can think of that is possibly suspicious is that I updated to stand alone Roboform 7.7.3 from 7.72 last night. No crashes before then. I've tried FF in safe mode - it crashes. I've reinstalled Firefox 10.0.2 and Roboform 7.7.3. Still crashes. I've rebooted - still crashes.

IE 9 and Chrome 17 are stable using Roboform.

I have sent a help request to Roboform without much hope of an intelligent reply.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I use the community forum on Cakewalk.com and found that Firefox 10.0.2 does not allow for responding to the posts of others, nor does it allow for proper formatting of paragraphs when posting and often causes the forum to issue error messages.

I never had this problem with earlier versions and to verify that Firefox is the problem, I accessed the forum using Internet Explorer and found no problems.

I have recently formatted my computer (doing a full system wipe, not just a settings wipe) and now Firefox isn't behaving. If I change my Firefox homepage to another homepage (IE Google) it will save it until I close out all my Firefox windows, then it goes back to the default homepage. I have tried doing a full Firefox uninstall, and deleting my profile and it's not working. I set the files to 'read only' and changed my homepage, and it still went back to the default. I have even deleted the prefs to no avail. I'm positive it's not malware as I have just formatted my computer (It was doing the same thing for a while last time I formatted as well but it somehow fixed itself) I do have Adblock and Status-4-ever installed, but those have been in my PC since before I formatted last time and have never caused a problem. They're also on my other computer, and it works fine as well. Any ideas on what I can do to fix this?

PS. Sorry if I'm in the wrong area. I'm a little bubblebrained today. =P

Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." The solution I have found to solve this on a previous version, does not work for this Firefox release. Has anyone who had this issue found a solution for this bothersome problem?

I'm starting this again, as the previous question is called solved even though for some people including myself it was not solved. With every release since 8 (windows xp) my screen saver no longer comes on. I tried opening firefox in safe mode to see if that would help and it did not. I did just discover today however, that if I go to private browsing that the screen saver will come on. So something must be running that private browsing stops, but safe mode does not. Any ideas out there?
