After starting a new firefox window and browsing www.twitter.com, I find that clicking on a link on one of the tweets will briefly pop up a new window, but then the original twitter window will cover it up again.

This only happens once. After that, all links pop up windows that stay up, until I restart firefox.

This doesn't happen on an identical version of firefox on a different windows 7 machine.

Any help would be very useful. I've tried disabling all add-ons, and have tried deleting and re-installing firefox from scratch.

Thanks.

I run a smart board in my classroom through my MacBook Pro. When I open Firebok, I can only get Firefox to open on the extended desktop. It will not open on my main screen. The only time i can get Firefox on my main screen is to disable the extended desktop or drag it over to the main desktop.

I have been working on this problem for days and I just can't find a resolution. I have a slider that hold several Google Charts. The Google Charts need to load prior to the slider loading. The issue is that there is a display:none in the CSS that will throw off the Google Charts. I removed the display:none that was causing the problem and adding a simple jQuery script to add the display:none back in once the DOM is loaded...

<script type="text/javascript"> $(window).load(function () {

       $('.ls-layer').css("display","none");

}); </script>

This works with Chrome and IE, but not Firefox. I've tried many different options and I still can't find a fix for this. It appears that the window.load is just firing off too darn early in FF. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Below is a link to one of the pages I'm working on that has this issue...

i just recently moved and had comcast come setup my internet. They installed alot of homepages and a link in my bookmarks toolbar. i didnt want that stuff so i deleted it. now, all of my bookmarks in the toolbar keep moving around and unorganizing themselves. when i go to drag them back into the order i want, i can move some but only where it wants to go. not where i want it to. when i restart firefox the order is different every time. this is weird. i just want to be able to organize and drag and drop bookmarks but its acting weird and wont let me.

So, back in the last version of Firefox, Flash v11.3 wouldn't load correctly. The official solution was to roll it back, install a previous version, and I guess that's alright, but I was really hoping it was a temporary solution.

So now Firefox has updated to version 15. I thought this would solve the problem, and according to the old entries about Flash not working, it has. But then I updated flash, and now it's 11.4, and after updating twice I'm right back where I'm started.

Maybe this hasn't been articulated well enough? The problem isn't that it's a specific version that doesn't work and I'm willing to keep all my plugins in eternal limbo, it's that it doesn't work period. So, I guess I'm just supposed to roll back again? What should it be this time? Flash or Firefox? Does it matter? Which one hates the other one more? Will there ever be an actual solution to this, or will I just have to have outdated versions of one or the other forever?

And also, this is curious, according to this thing below that automatically reads your plugins and what not, I not only have 11.4, but also still have Flash 10.3 installed somehow. Maybe that will make it easier to roll back, but... does that make a difference? Is there anyone with Firefox 15 and Flash 11.4 that doesn't have this problem? I'm kinda hesitant to delete 10.3 because I might... you know, need it.

How do I keep the resend? window from popping up when I click the resend button? Some people say, don't use the back button. That does not apply to me, because when I want to refresh the page, i NEVER use the back button. This happens only on certain web pages, not all of them. (I do use the back button, but not to refresh a page. When I do use the back button, I almost never get a resend? window.)

I created two websites and check on them often when making changes. I have been using Firefox for some time (and may switch back to Internet Explorer). When I visit one of my sites, no problem. When I visit my second website, it says "Webpage Attack" and this just started happening. And when I visit this same site on Internet Explorer, I do not get the "Webpage Attack" message. It didn't happen before. The software that I used is by Serif Webplus 10. I went to the Serif forum and got all kinds of suggestions, about clearing my cache--which I did, as well as the history, cookies. When I visit this website on my cell phone, no issues.

My webhost said that a virus--Blackhole Exploit Kit was in the code and it was being used against me. He stated that my website had been hacked. Then, one of the forum members stated that the server my webhost uses could have been hacked.

I run my virus software everyday and it still didn't detect a virus. I even found info on YouTube about how to remove the Blackhole Exploit Kit virus and followed the steps and I still didn't have that virus on my computer.

So, I need help, because I do not get a "Webpage Attack" message when I look at my website on Internet Explorer and neither have other people when they visit it.
