Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

My browser was automatically updated to version 3.6.7. After this update, I am unable to switch between tabs by clicking on them. I can close whichever tab I wish, but this is a major inconvenience to have to close a tab I wish to continue browsing.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

updated to version 3.6.7

I have checked the option to warn me when a page attempts to redirect or reload, but some redirects are still happening without warning or approval. The redirects are solicitous in nature and hijack me away from a page that I was viewing without me clicking on anything. When it happens, reloading the original page sometimes results in another redirect but sometimes it doesn't. It seems pretty much random. I can only guess that the redirect is somehow imbedded in a banner or something - though I really no very little about how web pages work, so who knows. A few days ago I tried to reste the option by unchecing it and restarting firefox, and tehn rechecking and restarting firefox again. But today I got redirected. It's really a minor annoyance and it doesn't happen often, but I thought throw it out there. Thanx!

This happened

A few times a week

I need to be able to add some cabinet files to firefox for a specialized spellchecker. The exe file was set up for IE; it tries to work in Firefox saying it is installing, but it does not install. For IE installation I am given an alternative to unpack the CAB and install via INF, but I do not know how to do this in FireFox. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
