I blocked an image in photobucket storing site and found that instead of one particular image I had block the url http://s208.photobucket.com/home/Gibelgirl/index while in Firefox and while images are in there I can not see them. This only happens in F irefox as in other browser there is no problem. Photobucket has informed me that I have blocked the site with the FireFox browseer. Can you tell me how to unblock please as I need these images. Thanks JanUK

When I open a new tab it opens a Bing search window instead of a blank page like it used to. When FF starts it opens a blank page like it should, but if I click on the + to the right of the current tab is when the Bing tabs open. It's just a Bing search window not the Bing homepage. If needed I can submit a screenshot of the new page. I use 2 addons affecting tabs. Multiple Tab Handler, and Colorful Tabs. I think SlimBrowser is an IE based browser. I use Win pro 64 bi on a HP laptop and FF 3.6.8 I've never had this problem all the years I used FF until now Any Ideas? Thanks Floyd

I restrict access to my computer by using "Accept cookies from sites" - "Exceptions".

Every time I reinstall FireFox, I have to manually add the sites one-by-one to this exceptions list.

If I knew what file these exceptions were stored in, I could backup the file and wouldn't have to re-create every time.

Thanks.

I'm not sure whether or not the cursor activates this problem as it happens to pass over a word that wikipedia is programed to respond to w/ this definition balloon--it happens too fast for me to back track and figure out what i might have done that triggers its appearance. Seems random. No X to close balloon. Sometimes clicking cursor outside the balloon shuts if off...sometimes i can't get rid of it.Random occurrences of balloon but enough to be annoying.NOTE! Just now in hilighting "trouble shooting info" from Help menu, a balloon appeared w/ 4 icons:google, search Wikipedia, search duckduckgo and search surf canyon. This balloon appeared when the cursor went over the hi lighted text...it's like the Wikipedia dictionary definitions balloon i get when i'm reading online text! Connected?

All I wanted was to download a Power Point reader. Instead, I got I don't know how many add-ons that I never requested and now have TWO Yahoo tool bars at the top of my Firefox browser! How do I get rid of these? I tried installing a previous version of Firefox, which didn't help at all. Apparently, Firefox can remember everything you ever did because the tool bars are still there. I am really getting pissed off about web sites loading things onto my computer without my permission. Please help, anyone!

Despite following both Firefox and Flash directions, Firefox won't play videos from YouTube, Hulu, etc. They either never load or they load and freeze within seconds. Before I got the latest versions of Firefox and Flash, I did not have this problem. So there must be a problem in one or both of them. Since I understand from various websites that this is a widespread problem, can Firefox fix this? It's a major flaw in the latest Firefox version.
