I never set up a tab group but somehow I have one with three tabs in it and I have gone to the group and clicked on the X in the top right corner but it continues to open every tab in the group every time I open a browser. I don't want ANY of these opened, I don't even want a tab group, how do I delete this group thing and how do I make it stop opening these web pages?

Hi...I'm having a lot of issues recently with Google Music. (FF v. 11)

Initially the problems started last week. I suspect Google changed something in their codes as many of their programs (music, offers) suddenly stopped working. I discovered if I unblocked the tracker "Google Analytics" that I had blocked (through Ghostery extension), it started working again. All was well for a few days.

Now, suddenly....it is once again not working even though Analytics is unblocked. Now, one thing that did happen in the interim is that Microsoft released a slew of security updates which affected both my XP desktop and Vista laptop, both of which run FF 11.

Whatever went wrong, though, it only affects FIREFOX. Internet Explorer plays it just fine. Music works no problem. Offers works no problem.

So the question is ....what else going on here?

There is an unusual problem that keeps cropping up with firefox 11.0. I am running Ubuntu 11.10 with an encrypted hard drive and for some strange reason firefox cannot be loaded. I keep receiving the Your firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. Error message.

I have gone in through the profile manager, deleted, and created a new profile. That didn't work. Then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, no luck. I even tried changing the location of the profile folder with a brand new profile, that didn't work either.

The strangest thing of all is, is that I can still use and load up firefox, but only if I open up a terminal to type in sudo firefox. Then it loads up with no problem, but that is the only way I can get it to load without the error message.

This is an unusual firefox bug I have never encountered before and I have no clue as to how to fix it. Any help fixing this problem will be extraordinarily appreciated. Take care, stay amazing, and have a wonderful day.

How can I retain hyperlinks while saving a webpage as PDF via Print?

This is the title of an apple forum question, and it is a bug in both Safari 5.1.3 and under, and I find it to also occur in Firefox browser (at least 9.* 10.*, 11.0), running on Lion OS (10.7.2, 10.7.3). See: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3212301?start=0&tstart=0

Under the newer Mac OS mentioned, and Firefox 10.2, 11.0, 9.*, if I select: File -> Print -> PDF -> Open PDF in Preview" (and view / save the PDF in Preview, you will see none of the links in the original web page are active or using File -> Print -> PDF -> Save as PDF... same problem. Try this using any Wikipedia page, for example.

When this problem was posed in Apple forums, by a user of the Safari browser, it was found to be a bug (since Aug 2011) fixed in a Safari browser build 5.1.4 circa Jan 2012. I tried the newer Safari browser and sure enough the problem went away (except that links embedded in the PDF no longer appeared as blue text - ARGH - but "hover over" with the cursor showed the link and clicking the link in Preview viewer activated the link in a browser window).

So I post this to the Mozilla community, please fix this 'cause I don't want to have to switch over to Safari browser every time I want to archive a PDF with active links!!!!

P.S. I did a spot-check and with the newer add-on Enjoy Reading 1.0.1 and FF11.0. When the Enjoy reading formatted version appears in the browser window, all URLs/links are preserved and highlighted in blue, but when I print that browser window as PDF, the links are dead (don't work) even though they appear in blue in the PDF.

So, what's going on, can the Safari fix be researched and applied to FF?

Also, on some forums, people are responding, Well, try installing Acrobat reader. Well, I don't want to, Preview reader has worked fine for me for years.

I have Firefox 11 on Ubuntu 12.04. I have disabled antialiasing of fonts in the system, but Firefox seems to ignore this setting. Fonts are still blurred, which is very annoying and makes eyes tired. Is there any way to make fonts in Firefox sharp, as they are on Windows?

Since minor crash yesterday (which dis configured my settings), downloaded files now go to firefox download folder. I can see the files but I will like to move them to a folder/location of my choice. Kindly advise how to move or copy files from Mozilla download folder to a system file folders or even the desktop. I think the mini crash (which I fixed by a system restore) has disabled "Open Containing Folder". Otherwise Tools > Downloads to open the Downloads window and right-clicking files to > "Open" would have worked.

My problem or challenge is NOT how to direct downloads to a folder of my choice in the future going forward. Its an easy fix through Tools>Options.

My problem is how to move the files that are CURRENTLY on the Firefox folder off the Firefox folder.

The irritating thing is these files currently on the firefox folder are visible - i can see them, folder-searchable but unopenable. I cannot resave the files and I cannot copy them either.

The reason for my post is to seek/ask a way to move the files that are CURRENTLY on the Firefox folder off the Firefox folder.

Optimizing Video Playback in Firefox

I'm having very choppy and lagging playback on videos in general, and in youtube in particular. I'm running an old Dell Inspiron, but not so old that I should have be having such hard time watching basic Youtube videos, and I've got a pretty stable cable connection.

To optimize and speed up regular viewing of Youtube vids, does anyone have any tips on which add-ons should be running in my browser and which ones may slow down and conflict with others? Currently, the only add-ons I'm running are Status-4-Evar extension, and Shockwave Flash plugin, but I've had a lot of stuff that has already automatically downloaded, but that I keep disabled out of fear that it'll use up too much memory.

So, again, any tips of increasing video speed?

Hello, I've had firefox for awhile now and I was used to the updates, but for some reason Firefox has ceased updating for me and I am stuck on version 19, I have attempted uninstalling and reinstalling which is what was suggested when I looked through for an answer.

When I do uninstall and reinstall even though it tells me its updating to the 22nd version it reverts directly back to 19. I know it is not updating because one of the websites I visit tells me if my browser is not updated to its latest version and prevents me for getting certain tasks done, when I contacted an administrator they told me Firefox was still on its 19th version on my computer. I'm not exactly sure what the problem is, any ideas?

How to enable private mode from commandline, with an URL. I am a software dev and I wish to have my application open links in Firefox. Using ShellExecute(), i can do with with commandlines like:

firefox.exe http://support.mozilla.org

But I also want the option to open the link in private mode. I am able to start firefox in private mode by doing this:

firefox.exe -private

However, if I add a link to the command line

firefox.exe -private http://support.mozilla.org

I get strange results.

If firefox is not running, it launches 2 copies of the application. One that opens in private mode and the other opens in normal mode and goes to the URL specified.

If firefox is already running, it just opens the URL in a new tab. No private mode instance is launched.

Am I using the command-line syntax incorrectly?

For the past 2 weeks, Ubuntu Upgrade Manager has said that the latest Firefox upgrade (from 11.0 to 12.0, if I understand correctly) cannot be installed.

This is from the Ubuntu Update Manager "Description of Update": Changes for the versions: 11.0+build1-0ubuntu0.10.04.2 12.0+build1-0ubuntu0.10.04.1

Is anybody else experiencing this problem, or is it only me?

Any ideas about what to do?
