When using Firefox I continue to get these left hand pop-out strips for links to Facebook, Email, Twitter, Reddit, Stumblupon and more. This strip of links covers the text on the page making it impossible to read any article.

How do I get rid of it? I've installed AdBlock, AdPlus, NoScript and still can't get rid of the thing. Here's a picture:

I want Firefox to stay in the current tab window after clicking a link. I want the link to open in a new tab window, but not switch to it automatically.

In a nutshell, I want to be able to click on a link and have it act the same way it does when I right click and select "open link in new tab".

Why is a % symbol suddenly being automatically added to my links in my Wordpress site when the links are copied in Firefox

About two weeks ago, I started having a problem with my links to videos. The videos are not opening at all, as they have been for the past 6 months. After many days of troubleshooting, including all of the Firefox recommends, and searching support threads, I discovered that when a link is copied in Firefox a percent symbol % is being automatically added to the link's code string. That % symbol is preventing the video from playing, or even appearing on the page.

When I copy the link in Chrome, it works fine, as it has for the last 6 months, and no code is being added. Why is this suddenly happening in Firefox, and how can we stop it? It is killing my business. None of my members can see the 76 video greeting cards.

Here is the one that never loads (just get bouncing circles) https://wordpress.com/post OR https://wordpress.com/post/13725633/new/ Now that I restarted my browser, I can't get anything to come up on my Wordpress account. I have been through this with Wordpress and still cannot fix. I gave wordpress.com an exception in the blocking preferences

Also, my blog on Wordpress has a grey warning mark on the address bar.

I can load all of this on safari just fine.

I've tried Safe Mode and I've looked for the crash report in Application Support, unfortunately, there is no Firefox folder! Version 33.1 works OK.

The Troubleshooting information below is for version 33, since I can't get 35 to start. I don't know if you'll find anything useful in there or not.

I hope this is useful. I note that the log entry above suggests I'm running 10.9.2 and the troubleshooting data shows, correctly, that it is 10.10.

I'm at a loss to figure out how I can bookmark a page and have the bookmark be in a subfolder of my bookmarks. I used to be able to do this easily, now I have no idea, other than to click the star, which animates over into the icon next to it, then go into manage bookmarks and manually drag it from my recently bookmarked folder into where I want it to go. Is there an easier way? (using FF35 on a mac) RJH

I'm running Firefox 35.0.1 on a MacBook running OSX Yosemite. I open the Add-ons Manager, navigate to Plugins, and click "Check to see if your plugins are up to date". This takes me to the Plugin Check page. However, none of my plugins are listed on that page. I use Firefox as my primary browser and mainly work on Windows machines. I'm new to Mac, so perhaps that's the problem.

Any suggestions, tips, or other help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
