I seem to recall, albeit in error it seems, that 'in former times' there was an option to open an existing tab in a new window. I cannot find this option and I cannot find any such topic in the forum so far. This is an extremely useful option. I am using FF28 beta on a W7Pro 64bit machine and with tab add-ons: tab history, tab mix plus and prevent tab run-on .

For the past two days, sites that I have logged into show cached credentials so that I don't have to enter the username or password. I specifically have Firefox set not to remember passwords and I block the sites from remembering information. I also have cookies and history set to delete immediately. And the browser is running in private mode.

Currently running Firefox 28.0

I've just updated to version Firefox 28.0 on my iMac and my Windows laptop. The Windows version seems to be working fine but the Mac version is constantly crashing when I try to open a new website (whether from bookmarks or the Search Bar). My home page (BBC News) launches okay. I've tried resetting and reinstalling but neither has fixed the problem.

Running Firefox 28.0. Just updated, that did not help. The font size on Firefox and Thunderbird increased for the headers, tabs, toolbars, drop down menus, etc. What is in the display appears normal and can be adjusted using the ctrl +- keys. That has no effect on the toolbars, headers, etc. My resolution is at max, icons small, text size at 100%.

Two weeks ago I started to have intermittent problems with gmail. It would work fine for a few days and then I would have problems again. I can sign on, but can only open one mail at a time, as gmail freezes. I have to sign out and sign back in again to open another mail repeatedly. I can compose a new mail but when I click <Send> the message never gets sent, so I have to sign out. The message doesn't get saved to "Draft" either.

At times I was unable to open my contact list. I looked in the Help Files and there really doesn't seem to be anything in the indexes that apply to my problem. I looked and saw that their servers are not down, but they've had some issues with "chat" . I am at a loss and opened another email account in hotmail just so I could communicate. Please advise as it would be very tedious for me to have to update everything with a new email address. Thanks in advance.

OS is Windows Vista with all updates. Using Adobe Reader X version 10.1.9. Checking for updates from within the Adobe Reader program generates a message from Adobe that the software up to date, no updates available. Firefox advises Adobe Plugin version 10.1.9 is vulnerable and to update the plugin. Attempting to update from within Firefox connects with the Adobe update site. Attempting to update from within the update site brings up a message from Adobe that the latest software is installed. Please advise.

At start up. My home page comes up and a "new tab" opens at the same time. The new tab opens with links to ebay, face book, twitter, booking.com etc. On the far left side, at the bottom in small lettering, is "my search dial". At the top are some boxes for customizing the look of the page and the layout. I just want to be able to stop this second tab from opening. I've checked the options-general-home page to make sure the url has no added characters but the home page opens just fine, it's the new tab I want stopped. Thanks

I have a new computer and want to sync my FF bookmarks etc. Email and password are accepted. I did not know my activation code. I checked the website and I clicked on lost my device to generate a new password, but this new activation code was marked an error. Now FF will not give me another activation code if I click on Lost again but simply crashes. I tried to set up a new account with another email address but this is refused. Will I ever be able to sync my account to my new computer?
