Preferences>Applications>Content Type: Portable Document Format (PDF) ... Action: Use Preview (default) OR Action: Preview in Firefox OR Action: Always Ask

Same result: Dialog box which says: "You have chosen to open (filename) ... Which is: (file type) ... From: (URL) Would you like to save this file?" Options are Save File OR Cancel. There is no way to actually open the file without saving it first. I do not want to save the file.

Why do complete web pages download as a file and a folder on macs as opposed to the single file downloads in safari?

Is it necessary to have both a folder full of files and a individual file appear whenever I want to download a complete web page in firefox. This is not the case in safari. It is inconvenient to have to keep two icons for every web page, and if I put the file icon into the folder of other files that download with each web page it is not a simple click of an icon to open the page offline. I have to go into the folder and find the file icon. Am I missing some setting to make this work as easily in firefox as it does in safari? Thanks.

I got what I thought was a genuine request to answer a Firefox survey as to its service and as I am very happy with Firefox I wished to communicate this fact. I soon relised however that despite the genuine look of logos etc I had been fooled. Now everything I do seems to be infected by this. Documents and posts to work sites are littered with an icon circular in shape with an arrow breaking the circle at around two o' clock. When the cursor is placed over this you get a text box offering jobs and contact sites etc.

Your assistance would be appreciated.

An ad "popup" has injected itself into Foxfire. Bottom left corner of browser window is populated with an ad window. It floats the screen. With Google it seems to work but under Bing it stalls and scripts crash. Often the crashing browser. It's not an addon or extension but the net does have info on how to remove a similar addon. Perhaps their first version of this more malicious item. McAfee and ClamXAV don't see it. The only way to actually even identify it's source is to look at the Page Info, Media and look at the image locations. This article seems to describe the identical problem I've experience but no posted solution. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18540776/shopping-guide-onlines-com-superfish-com-injected-script-into-firefox

Every time i try to open gmail it gives:

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Otherwise all other Google products work fine! Only gmail is not working.

Since latest update of Mozilla a few days ago (Mac) I have noticed at least 2 items that I used to use regularly have lost functionality:

1. Used to be able to reorder bookmarks by drag and drop (Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks). No longer able to reorder except manually cut and paste tediously

2. Used to be able to click download arrow in toolbar to see progress of downloads. Click no longer works. Now can only see download progress by (Tools -> Downloads) pop-up menu.

And no, the mouse is working fine, can click on other things and drag and drop photos etc. just fine. Please advise. Thanks!
