I want to turn off the header that says firefox prevents opening new page. Others have asked and been answered to make a selection under "tools" to do this, but my version (3.6) does not have the same configuration under "tools" that previous questioners have been advised to use. I can only select web search, downlaods, set up synch, erros console, web console, page info, start private browing, clear recent history. Which one?

Using Firefox 7.0.1 on a MacBook Pro with OS 10.6.8 and NO OTHER applications running, I am consistently getting the message that Your Mac OS X startup disk has no mor space for application memory.

I see a note about iPhoto plugin 6. I have iPhoto 9 app.

When I receive an attached document (Word or OpenOffice), I click on it. I get a Norton Antivirus window that says it's clear and I click on the yellow Download button. Then nothing happens. 1. I don't get the windows that asked Open? or Save?. 2. The documents are not in the Download folder. 3. I reset the downloads to my Documents folder - nothing appears there either. 4. I search my iMac with the file names, and no results show up.

UPDATE: Problem Solved. For some reason cookies from nytimes.com were marked "block" in the Preferences>Privacy list. I'm not sure how this happened, since it was not a site I would have blocked.

In Firefox 7.0.1 running on Mac 10.6.8 I get stuck in loops at the New York Times nytimes.com log in. This is not a problem in Safari, but Firefox has Zotero. I have cleared cookies, cleared the cache, and re-started in safe-mode (add-ons disabled), and I still have the problem.

Recently switched over from Internet Explorer. One of things I liked about IE was if I adjusted some of the tabbed browsing settings, whenever I opened a link in a new tab, it opened it at the very end of the tab bar. No tab grouping, no opening next to the current tab. Seems like a pretty simple thing, but I just can't figure out how to set that up in Firefox.

Any suggestions on how to take care of that? Thanks!
