Hi. I'd like to know how to remove the redirection to the navigation bar when I open up a new tab. Everytime I open up a new tab I've set it so I come to my homepage, google. But instead of directing me to the search bar in the center of the site, as it usually does when you type in the address and hit enter, it redirects me to the navigation bar, removes everything there and puts out the text "Go to a website". I don't want that, I want so it puts me in the search bar like if I'd have typed in the address in the navigation bar. Thanks in advance.

Yesterday (19Feb) FF was working fine and I hadn't experienced a crash in several weeks. This morning, the program had crashed, and when it recovered, it said it was updating. Since then, it has crashed 4 or 5 times, usually just in a static (not bringing new pages up) condition. My computer hasn't been changed. The only add-ons running are McAfee Site Advisor 3.6.0, Noscript 2.6.5.7, and Xmarks 4.1.3

It really more of the formatting. It seems the pages have been coded wrong. Text does not fit into boxes for the text. Some items are behind others. Sometimes the text is huge. A lot of the time the text is squeezed together very closely in bold. The pages seem to work. I have enlarge and made small the pages, that does not correct the problem. I use FF on an iMac, but that is not the problem. This just started in the last couple of months. It does not affect the functioning of the software, just the visual presentation.

Hi, I am on the verge of deleting Firefox from my computer as it has wasted hours of my time, and none of the online trouble-shooting answers are of any help.

Until recently I could open PDF files in my browser window, and today its impossible to open any pdf file, it will not even download if I choose to download it.

This issue has been going on and off for nearly a year, and I downloaded Nitro PDF add-on to solve it previously as the Adobe reader add-on didn't do anything. Today In the options menu of applications where I can select the program I want to open the PDF files with I can no longer find the NitroPDF reader as an option, so I choose the Adobe add-on and no matter how many re-starts it refuses to initiate any PDF files, all I get is a open and empty new tab.

Internet explorer opens PDF files fine, so I know its not computer related.

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate, Firefox Version 19.0.

If there is a way of fixing this, please help because currently I am at the end of my patience.

Regards,

Emre

I am an immigration attorney and have an online immigration program I use daily. Since the last upgrade of Firefox, the immigration forms (adobe acrobat) for my clients do not load correctly. I get a message that the forms may not display correctly with an option to open with a different viewer. The form opens correctly if I choose this option, but the form does not allow me to add and save information to the client's file so it is of no use to me. if this cannot be corrected I will stop using Firefox.

Since I updated to the latest Mozilla Firefox 19 I have been having a few problems. I no longer have the Firefox box in the top left hand corner. I can open Mozilla to go online but when I want to ask question it wont recognize my password, when I try to retrieve it via email it does not arrive. When I try to register I'm told the account already exists, I can't remember how I got to this page now. Flash video won't play full screen on YouTube, Facebook and other websites, it pauses on screen but is still working under neath until I move the mouse. It is almost fine on the small screen. It appears to work ok on I E. I disabled "Use Hardware acceleration" I've updated Real player and Adobe Flash 11.3 and I'm using Win 7.

and when there aren't that many tabs, it looks fine. http://i.imgur.com/vXjLcDo.png

However, when tab overflow occurs, app tabs don't look quite right. http://i.imgur.com/8XLuWka.png

Is there a way to fix this?

Also, when are the svg versions of the firefox logo coming out? The status has been "will be released soon" for over a year now.
