Internet Explorer gives the following options for opening a new tab: "When a new tab is opened, open: - A Blank Page - The New Tab Page -Your first home page"

On Firefox 3.6.10 the only option is the new tab page. If you click "close" a blank page appears. There is no option for a new tab opening your home page.

In addition, you cannot right click the home button to "open in a new tab".

Is there a shortcut for this, and if not, can firefox include this option in it's next version?

When using Firefox as the browser, if I go to amazon.com and search for a particular cd, the title and all other info about the cd come up but there is no cover image. This problem just came up a few days ago--everything was fine for the past several years--but now there is no picture on anything. If I use Explorer as the browser and do the same search, the pictures are all there as they should be. What's going on here?

I'm new to Firefox. After a couple of days, I began getting a list of add-ons including a message that SlipStream SP Integrator 6.0.30 is not compatible with version 3.3.10. I assume that's true, so I click on the "Uninstall" button and the uninstall is confirmed after I tell FF to restart. However, a second window then thanks me for installing SlipStream and installation will be complete when I close the window. There are no other alternatives, so I guess SS is promptly reinstalled. How do I get out of this loop? I can provide screen shots, if I only knew how.

I am having real problems with FF3.6.6 not showing some text fields on a page. I run Windows XP with 3.6.6, Mac with 3.6.6, and a virtual machine running 3.6.6+ (along with 2 IEs, Chrome, Safari, Opera) but it is fine for me but more and more people are saying the fields aren't there. The fields are in the address section of a registration form which has been used for years. Can anyone take a look to see if they can see all the fields here, or why the fields might not show in certain cases. I am not trying to spam you to look at the page, this is legitimate.

Thanks a lot
