If I open a new browser window so that I have 2 up, for some reason I cannot open any new tabs in the second browser window. If I close the first browser window for whatever reason, the 2nd window will still not let me open new tabs, nor can I open any new tabs if I close all Firefox windows and open a new one. The only thing that seems to work is to open Firefox in safe mode and tick the box which puts the settings back to default. This gives me the ability to open new tabs in an original browser window, but again, as soon as I open another browser window I can no longer open new tabs. I also do not change any settings in between one Firefox restart and the next. I would very much like to know what is happening here, and if there is anything I can do to remedy it.

I used to be able to change zoom using ctrl_scroll and it worked fine (to fit whole page on one screen with no scroll bars). Now, even after I do that, as soon as I go to a new site or change folders in gmail, it keep reverting back to a default zoom making the page too big to fit on one screen. It is particularly annoying with gmail..

Every time I use the search feature on the top right of the tool bar, I get a ebay banner that continuously scrolls down the screen. The web page initially opens ok but is quickly covered by the scrolling banner. I have pop-ups blocked but this doesn't prevent the problem. If about:config is part of the solution, please walk me through it. I don't know how to access about:config

I open up Firefox and all I am allowed to access is this page. If I click on the tab to open that, nothing happens. I've gone into the options page to look at the tab configuration and everything seems fine. With this happening, I am only able to look at one page. I can't even open another internet page.

Firefox and SeaMonkey do not show any webpage backgrounds and hot buttons don't have borders and entry windows like the one I'm typing in don't have borders. The only reason I can type here is I saw a cursor in this big blank area.

Firefox 3.6.16 and SeaMonkey 2.0.13 yesterday stopped displaying webpage background color. Everything is white. This text box has such a faint grey line around it that I didn't know it was there. Every webpage I look at has the same issue. Bing works correctly. IE got corrupted a month ago and I've stopped using it. My Windows 7 programs, Outlook, Word, Excel changed their color settings and some icons, Print & Paste, on the toolbars are larger like 1995 quality.

I run enterprise operating systems on several servers and workstations. Firefox 4.x won't run on either Redhat 5.5 or CentOS 5.5, which I am locked into using for my OSs. I need links for the 'older' 3.6.xx series, but can't find a useful link; the one on Mozilla's page directs me to 4.0, even though it is listed as being for the 3.6.17 release.
