When I try to download a software up date for another program in Binary File (eg. C Cleaner or a Microsoft file) in Firefox they all just come up in the download window as 'Canceled'? When I go to the destination folder the download file icon is there with 0 Kb's for size...Then when I click 'RETRY' the download it appears to download fully, but when I go into the destination folder the downloaded file is not there? I need to know if there is something in the Firefox options to resolve this problem or much more!!

I would like to know if FIREFOX allows keys to be remapped. I want to be able to make the F1 key paste my email address into a textbox on a website to make it easier to type stuff. I have seen other programs that allow you to "remap" the keyboard and I wanted to know if FIREFOX allows this or not?

When clicking external links (from Emails, Twitter Client, Messenger/Skype windows), if Firefox is closed it will open two windows; One with my homepage and a second with the actual link. However, if firefox is open, the external link will just open in a new tab as instructed.

It was reported a while back (https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/560561?s=clicking%20external%20link%20opens%20up%20two%20windows&as=q) however, the questions seems to be 'solved' with someone saying they have the same problem.
