I bought a new Lenovo Windows 7 machine and installed the latest version of Firefox on it. Unfortunately my homepage setting will not stay modified! I can set it and use it, but the setting goes away each time Firefox is closed or the system is rebooted. :-( Any suggestions? This feature works fine on my two XP machines.

Thanks.

My question is this:

If I do as you suggest in the General Tab of Preferences - see below - how do I get all the other tabs back if only the last one shows? If they are hidden, I need to know how to access them.

Your directions which I need help with....Don’t load tabs until selected. Voila! Now, only the last tab you were working in will be loaded on startup.

THANKS.

I'm VERY frustrated. The new version 11 is still in Beta and I got automatically upgraded without even being asked. As it is 3rd party software I've been sent made for FF hasn't been compatible to V10, so I've lost the ability to use them. How do I shut that feature off? Now I feel I got stuck with this beta release yet there's almost no add ons compatible with this release and at this point I need them in order to function properly. How do I go back to V10?

Attempted to modify these settings to solve another issue which is that FF 11.0 now updates itself every single time I open FF. It goes through the add-on check then displays the same "Welcome to FF" tab every single time I start FF.

So, in an attempt to solve this, I changed the general settings to "Show Home Page" and clicked OK, quit and restarted FF only to be presented with the same exact issue. Checking the general options revealed that it changed itself back to "show tabs from last time".

So, I have two problems. The incessant updating and displaying of the welcome tab has happened before, with other versions.

I called the 800 # and was answered by an Indian sounding individual. I proceeded to tell him my problem and he had me on the line for 45-50 minutes to understand the e-mail problems I was having. He said it would cost $100 for a thorough cleaning of my files and $300 for Security services for one year. I should have backed off because he kept pushing to extend the security services. I proceeded to have them clean the files using something Clean. Has anyone heard of this as a Scam?

Whenever firefox opens a new window a bar comes across the screen at the top with the word "allow" or an "X" on the right side. When I use allow, it closes.

This happens when I have only one tab, or window, open. Example, I am on a site like my banking site, and each time I click for a new operation, the black bar comes on just under my tool bar and asks if I want to allow the move to a new page, but it does not open a new window. If I hit allow, it usually closes my site and I have to log on again. If I hit the x, it also closes the window and I have to log on again. This has happened on a pc and at home on my mac.
