Whenever I am online, new tabs open up to advertisement websites. Also, when I'm searching for something on Google, it doesn't go to the proper website, instead it goes to an advertisement website and sites that are deemed dangerous.Why am I getting these new tabs?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Firefox fixed the random pop-up windows that used to open up.

When i am on different webpages and i try to copy information (URLs, data, links etc) from the webpage and try to paste it into either email messages, MS Outlook 2003 or a MS Word 2003 document, it will not paste. Not sure if this is a Firefox problem or a MS Office problem. It worked fine until about 2 days ago. Now it won't do it at all - have tried from several different webpages, different types of data, different types of desinations (documents, email, etc)

== noticed it about 2-3 days ago. No changes made to the system.

I did not get a chance to select the restore feature and firefox exited with a lot of import tabs and links up. Then, it just restored an instance with one tab, instead of the many tabs with important info. I see there is a book mark history, is there a session history for previously used tabs and their urls? Unfortunately, I had just before that, selected, to close history when firefox exits and when it crashed, it cleared that history.

Every time I log onto MySpace, on every profile I go onto to look at, there are at least some if not most of their pictures blank, it won't show me their pictures, even when I look at my profile pictures it won't show most of them, it'll be a blank space when at the top it say picture 34 out of 70 or something. It isn't my computer doing this because google chrome and the other internet program I have show all pictures on myspace.

When I attempt to print a web page w/current Firefox version I get a miniaturized version of the page that fits into a small space on the upper left corner of the printed copy. Prior Firefox versions did not present this problem. I just want to know how to set up so that a full page on screen is printed in a full page format on my copy. I tried to find solution on line but, to no avail

I have lost years of bookmarks upon upgrading from 3.5 to 3.6. None of the suggested solutions on forum have helped and in fact I don't see any responses from Mozilla just other users. I've reinstalled 3.5 as some other users said that reinstated their bookmarks but it did no good with mine. What's up Mozilla? Are you going to leave us all hanging out to dry without a fix to your really bad mistake. Help your users or you are going to lose many.
