I removed Bing from my computer as I did not like it much. Since Google has now become such a useless piece of junk I decided to re-install Bing but each time I try I get the following message. Quiote: Firefox could not install the search plugin from "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/54407/bing-20090601.xml?src=category" because an engine with the same name already exists. This engine does no show up anywhere on my computer except for an XML file in Firefox/searchengines. I have deleted them but it makes no difference. The files do not show in Tools\addons nor in about:config. Please don't tell me that Firefox is become as useless as Google...............I don't want to have to use IE.

How to open links in new tabs in a new tab directly to the right? (the default beheviour)

I installed this addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tree-style-tab/ and it changed my tab settings. I preferred Firefox the way it was where if I right click on a link and click open it new tab, it opens it *right beside* the current tab. Now they all open at the end of the tabs, and when I close the tab its doesn't go back to the tab I was on. I removed the addon and it's still broken.

How do I reset it back to the default?

Disable "back" command for mousebutton 3, "the wheel"-click.

For as long as I can remember the mousebutton 3 on my Logitech MX518 has had the following function: 1) When pressing on a non-link item, nothing happens 2) When pressing on a link; that link opens in a new tab.

Sometime in the last 6 months new behaviour was introduced as follows: 1) When pressing on a non-link item, the "back" command is executed. 2) When pressing on a link; that link opens in a new tab.

The annoying part here is that if I miss-click a link, the current tab loads the last visited page which is sort of the opposite effect I want. I want to open a link in a new tab and still stay on the current page I'm reading.

So my questions: 1) Is this a feature of Firefox (or perhaps website specific behaviour?) and if so, when was it introduced? 2) Can I disable this feature, e.g. in about:config?

Firefox says JAVA is outdated, JAVA website says it's fine???

I currently have Java Platform SE 7 U9 v 10.9.2.5 and Java Deployment Toolkit v 7.0.70.10 / 10.7.2.10 installed and working fine on my Win XP SP3 machine, running FF 17.0… (read more)

I currently have Java Platform SE 7 U9 v 10.9.2.5 and Java Deployment Toolkit v 7.0.70.10 / 10.7.2.10 installed and working fine on my Win XP SP3 machine, running FF 17.0.1.

When I run an Add-Ons check, it says both are outdated and potentially vulnerable. When I go to the Java website, it says I have the latest version, and when I download and attempt to install, it says I already have that software installed.

How do I get FF to stop giving me false warnings about outdated Java. Ever since FF v13 this has been an issue with various add-ons, false warnings, and extraneous dll files that need deletion. Suggestions? Thanks.

Every time I click on a link of any kind, it opens a new tab. This includes things like clicking a youtube video after finishing a different one, which should just go to the video in the same tab, not open a new one. How do I get it to stop opening new tabs every time I try to click something? It even opens new tabs each step of making this question. It's slowing down my computer because it's making tons of new tabs for no reason.

Auto-complete is working for my frequently visited sites except for recently failing when logging-in to my Internet banking facility. No longer is my banking user name available as the drop-down list of several users no longer appears.

I checked with my bank to be assured that auto-complete has not been blocked by default within the site configuration.

As this is a recent failure I have to wonder, as the bank has disclaimed responsibility, whether auto-complete can be restored for this one site.

I save many files in many different places. I'm looking for a solution that quickly lets me choose the right folder. Something like Q-Dir, with tabs and such. The "Favourites" in Windows Explorer don't do it for me. Is there any way to change FFs behaviour?
