I have Firefox 43.0.4 on two different computers. On one of them if I click the current tab it moves me back to the previous tab, a behavior I really like. On the other one it doesn't and I would like it to.

I can't see an add-on or setting that's causing this switch to occur.

Can someone help me, pls?

Up to before v.43, our emergency alert program would open Firefox at http://cad.chp.ca.gov. Now Firefox opens to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/43.0.1/firstrun/learnmore/, and disappears within a few seconds. Accepting "Try the new private browsing" does not solve the problem.

What has changed so we can modify our code?

Thank you for help.

I have got this purple sign in the upper right of the browser. Every new tab I open says " your are browsing in private mode" (in dutch). So my history isn't saved. In my preferences I have UNchecked " always use privatebrowsing", and checked "remember history and downloads". And by the way I also checked 'always ask for where to keep downloads' which doesn't work anymore in this new version. Bug?

When I used to click on a PDF file, it would automatically open in my default PDF viewer. Now it askes me to save even though I have set in preferences that PDF should be opened automatically with my PDF viewer.

Now I have to wait for it download, then click on it again. I do not want these files saved permanently, they should save to the %temp% directory and be automatically opened in the default program. Please tell me what I need to do to get this working again.

Thank you!

I use Firefox as my browser and it usually opens with google as home page and searches are via google. Suddenly it started opening on yahoo and also using that as search engine. I suspect it happened when I downloaded update of C Cleaner which I think has a box I should have unticked. I seem to have got the home page back BUT a new tab still opens in yahoo and searches immediately go to yahoo. I've clicked the options tag (from drop down box top right) and gone through all that several times but it keeps going back to yahoo!!! Please can anyone tell me how to get rid of it.

My PC's time and date were incorrect and were the cause of the site presenting as untrusted. Since I then unwittingly entered it as an exception, I've now decided I want to delete the exception, but don't have any idea how to do so. My browser is Firefox, and my OS is Vista. I would appreciate any help. Thank you, kevindu.

I have made adjustments on the "about:config" once before on how to enable back the feature, but just few minutes ago I have the checkbox for the "Do not ask next time" option ticked by accident, and then proceeded to click the "Save and Quit" button. Now everything just closes, and automatically save my active tab(s)! How do I get the warning message box to prompt up again so I can choose to either Save and Quit, Quit, or just Cancel?
