I'm using Firefox 16.0.1 and the Adobe PDF viewer 10.1.4.38. The viewer defaults to 198% and "fit width" (I use a 24-inch screen). I want it to default to 100%. I've tried changing that setting, but it reverts to 198% and "fit width" with each new PDF document I view. How do I set the default to 100% and get it to stay there?

PDFs opening twice using 'open with > Firefox' when browser is not already running

Windows 7 - Firefox 15*-16*

if Firefox is not already running, opening a PDF document using Firefox (eg right-clicking PDF from desktop, selecting 'open with > Firefox) is always causing Firefox top open the PDF in two different windows. Happening with PDF plugins enabled and disabled.

Maybe this is a bug and I should report as such?

It's always worked until this past week, nothing changed by user that I know of. I've checked pop-up blocker to no avail. Using Avira free security, it updated a few days ago, did a restore after it was updated to before the update, didn't help either. Want let me open Hughes net mail in Fire Fox at all. Can access it from Explorer but hat Explorer, it's slower than Fire Fox. Any help is appreciated as I've run out of ideas.

For some reason I cannot edit text boxes on any webiste other than this one. Browser was working fine earlier (was on 15.0.1) until I went to my homepage (google) and clicked the gmail link which caused it to freeze. After finally managing to close the page when I restarted I found I couldn't edit text boxes on any page I went on and all the text shows up bold. I tried updating to 16.0.1 and also tried starting up in safe mode with all plugins disabled but it has made no difference. I've run a virus scan which has found nothing so now I'm at my wits end, any suggestions??

A dramatic reduction in performance (especially tab switching performance) is experienced on when hardware acceleration is enabled in the settings menu.

System info: Laptop - Win7x64Pro - Core i7-372QM - Mem: 16GB - Storage: RAID0 Intel 330 SSDs with 750MB/sec sustained read. In other words, this is a screaming fast laptop.

I've disabled a variety of plugins such as FireBug. These don't make much of a difference. The only thing that changes tab switching performance noticeably it is disabling hardware acceleration. Found this solution here: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/787024 : "Discovered that disabling hardware acceleration resolved all the remaining issues..."

This is a massive performance hit. I suspect that this has been the same issue across all my PCs (some laptops, some desktops, some gaming desktops, some integrated graphics, some dedicated graphics, various addons enabled, various versions of FF installed... all fast computers with high RAM and screaming fast SSDs and they have all been experiencing slow tab switching, especially after getting 10+ tabs open, but even with just two open).
