Firefox no longer opens PDF files. Explorer works OK. I have checked the Applications window in the Tools/Options and it says I am using PDF-xChange viewer....It just does not do anything. I get the message in the Download Error window which says...."could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder. Is the same error which I get when I attempt to open a PDF file on a webpage using the Firefox browser....Explorer works OK so I am now forced to Explorer to read PDF files via a browser.

I must have accidentally turned on the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option, and now can't open videos straight from the web page. Instead I always get the Save As dialog box How do I turn that option off so Firefox always prompts me to open a video file or save it?

Frequently when I click to refresh a page or open an new page I get this message: "The proxy server is refusing connections

Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections.

   *   Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct.
   *   Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working."

Tools>Options>Advanced>Configure how firefox connects to the internet Settings> will show that once again, the browser changed itself from auto detect to manual. I change it back to auto-detect and hit save, sometimes it works right away, sometimes I have to do it 3-4x in a row in order for the change to "stick"

Firefox won't print from websites and tries to save files instead

When I try to print (print an email, print a receipt from an online purchase, etc.) firefox instead opens the "save as" box and wants to save a .xps file. When I then click either save or cancel, I get an error message stating than an unknown error occurred when trying to print.

I am able to print the same items out of internet explorer, so the problem seems to be tied to firefox and not to, say, my printer.

All of a sudden firefox won't go online, but IE will and all other internet enabled applications. I can't remember why but I decided to restart firefox and it started happening. Actually I remember now, Facebook told me I had to close the browser as it was throwing an error. WHen I restarted, no internet connection. However, I have internet just fine in IE and other apps.
