Can you fix , the fact that If you leave the firefox update window open for a long period (say 20 minutes in the background), then close all other windowns, then choose to install, it uses this extra time to estimate the download?

Can you fix , the fact that If you leave the firefox UPDATE window open for a long period (say 20 minutes in the background), then close all other windows, then choose to download update, it uses this extra time to estimate the download? (Mine said, 12 Hours to start with, but took under 2 minutes!)

Ctrl-N for New Window gives me a gratuitous tab. How do you turn that off?

Every time a new window is created (e.g., via "Ctrl-N"), besides the single tab with my default site, I also get a gratuitous tab with a search engine. The first thing I … (read more)

Every time a new window is created (e.g., via "Ctrl-N"), besides the single tab with my default site, I also get a gratuitous tab with a search engine. The first thing I then ALWAYS do is delete this tab. I'd sure just like to turn off that stupid gratuitous tab from showing up in the first place! I scoured the "Options" dialog, but it doesn't seem to have anything related to this.

What's up?

== I reinstalled Firefox (about a month ago)

hi, i have a wordpress based website. it exhibits a strange problem - on some computers, when using firefox, the site will load just fine the first 5 - 10 times. but any visit after that, the site will load without any graphics (no background, header images etc...), as if the .css file isn't loading. again - this never happenes the first time you load the site, and it never happenes with chrome. i have had this problem on my computer, and another user reported this problem. is there something about my site that could be messing up firefox caching and is causing this? the problem can sometimes be fixed temporarily (sometimes by shift-refresh, sometimes by re-installing FF) but it allways comes back after a day or two. please, a lot of my users are FF users (as am i) and i'de hate to lose traffic because of this - does anyone have any idea what the problem is? ( i believe the problem is somehow with the site itself, but i can't figure out how that can be)

thank you

I use Internet data to do homeworks at the University. I am legally obligued to write the source of what I copy. When copying web addresses (source data) to a word processor sheet (like Word), Firefox replaces accents, symbols (like exclamation marks "¡" and "!") with unexpected strings of "%letters%letter" and so on. It doesn't happen wit IE, but I would better prefer to continue using Firefox, providing the trouble is solved. The troublemaking web addressess are in Spanish sites. I myself live in a Spanish-speaking country, and use Spanish to do my homework. My Firefox is in Spanish, and the version is 3.6.4.
