On starting Firefox, my last pinned tab is focused by default, instead of the homepage.

Something I've observed since at least today is that if I have more than one pinned tab, and I close Firefox then start it again (it is set to open my default homepage), my 'focused' tab by default is the right-most pinned tab. If I have one pinned tab, the homepage is focused as it should be.

I have tried starting Firefox with a -safe-mode and gotten the same result, however starting a new profile didn't seem to carry over the problem, therefore my problem is restricted to this profile (but at the same time, has nothing to do with my extensions).

I do not recall making any changes to the browser by myself (I'm careful about it, so I'm pretty sure about that regard). Whatever the problem is, it has crept in from somewhere else.

I tried resetting what few changed about:config entries I have, but have had no solution, and it's a minor annoyance, but it's driving me up the wall because if I have a homepage, I expect it to be open when I start the browser!

I'm having multiple problems with firefox, ever since I updated from Firefox 15, to 16. First off, the bookmarks toolbar doesn't show, unless I click uncheck then recheck the view bookmarks toolbar button. Second, I can't use the back/forward and refresh buttons. An lastly, whenever I click on a lnik that usually opens in a new tab, it opens in a new window instead. I've heard that this is a problem with the places.sqlite file in the profile folder of Firefox. I read that to fix this multi symptom problem, I have to delete those places files while firefox is closed, an open firefox. That doesn't do anything but screw up my fastdial bookmarks. All the problems still occur.

How can I fix firefox to work the same as it normally should?

Hello!

I have a problem in the chat (German). An user can't install Firefox anymore. It gives the error message, not having the required rights to install. The user couldn't uninstall Firefox before but had to as it was not able to start Firefox again. The reason maybe was a addon-bar that he don't know how it appeared there.

Do you have an idea how to solve it?

Problem 1: All update (beta, RC) fails in my computer. After download, when I click in apply button, Firefox closes and a process "firefox.exe"starts with (~2.800 kB) and nothing happens. Every time and every versions in my 2 computers (Vista and Seven). It occurs since ~10 version (9, 10, 11... i don't remember.

When I download the exe from Mozilla, the update works.

Problem 2: Since the ~10 version or flash version, mostly embedded youtube videos doesn't load in firefox (in all pcs again). In youtube site it works, but embedded only shows a black square. In Google Reader it occurs all the time.

In installing Foxfire for the first time, I was prompted to update my plug-ins. When I click on "update," I get a window asking if I want to save this file. I click to save, then I get the original screen with the same plug-in and others still listed as needing to be updated. I seem to be going in circles here. What am I missing?

I signed into yahoo mail okay. what happens is after I open my mail the past two days all of a sudden the page would get fuzzy and I couldn't read anything or it would turn white. This never happened before and I looked at the top of the browser and it said mozilla firefox is unresponsive. I tried signing out and nothing worked. I tried minimizing the page and closing it manually and it would not let me. I tried deleting cookies and what happened it that the temporary files kept deleting for about five minutes. it was very upsetting. I have no idea what is causing this. Even when I went to control panel-internet options-delete cookies it sometimes went unresponsive. that's a first. any advise is helpful

I was noticing that a lot of features (e.g. StumbleUpon) were not working on my GlobalMojo internet browser because I apparently did not have the latest version. The best version I could find was the latest model of Firefox, which I downloaded, but I'm not sure if this was the right move. I like the Firefox platform, but for GlobalMojo, and wanted to stick with Mojo. Is there a way to update that existing browser instead of switching to plain Firefox?
