In older versions of Firefox I could right click on a URL and then select "Open Link in new Window" and a new window would open to display the information. In newer versions, V5 or later, if I select "Open Link in New Tab" the new information will be displayed in a new tab, if I click on "Open Link in New Window" all I get is a new window with two blue bars across the top a "New Tab" and an empty window, no information is displayed.

When I ran Firefox the second time a tab containing the firefox plug-in assistant was on top. The first thing on that tab was to update the Adobe Flash player. I did this and during the installation Flash player required that I close Firefox. When I restarted Firefox the plugin assistant tab was not there.

I noticed that there were several plugins that needed to be updated. I would like to find that tab or the plug-in assistant.

Using Firefox for months with full page screen on my laptop when suddenly it changed to a split screen while I was on an AARP game site and it stays that way now - making it useless by cutting off pertinent info when I search for other sites. The left side stays on ther AARP site but the right moves to a new site as I browse.

I had FF running fully OK, but then tried to upgrade to FF9. After downloading the FFicon was crossed over, an a dialogbox said that my system did not support this version. So I threw this away and downloaded version 6, but this still has the crossed over thing, and won't open. How can I get a version of Firefox running on my Mac? Everything else works perfectly.

When I try to use the in-browser Add-ons Manager, I can never progress beyond the "Loading..." phase. I still have the Download, Search and Options available. I have waited 5-10 minutes to see if the loading finishes. So far, it has not. I do not remember what theme I am running. The only add-ons I remember are NoScript, KeyScrambler, and Privacychoice. All my add-ons and themese should be up-to-date as of 8/31/2011.
