Upon opening a new tab it will sometimes get moved to a new window. Just now as a matter of fact I was opening 4 new tabs in succession. When I opened the final fourth one I clicked back to the main tab (#5) & immediately all following tabs were moved to a new window. Why does this sometimes happen & is any 1 else having the same problem???

I am so frustrated. Just spent hours trying to upgrade to firefox 6 so I could watch videos on Vimeo. I finally succeeded in doing so and now my computer will not open firefox as it says it the architecture doesn't support it. I tried to go back to Firefox 3.6 but that didn't work either. Now I am stuck without firefox and it has lost all my book marks too. What can I do? I have an old mac lap top 10.4.11 Michele

I have installed the last version of Firefox. A message appeared telling me that my anti-virus could not work properly during the installation. I pressed the "Accept" button. Since then, my AVG antivirus 2011 does not work at all. I restarted the browser and the computer but it is useless.

When I click to play Farmville, or Cityville, etc, the page text goes really small, including the facebook logo, and the window for the game is tiny. The graphics in the game are normal sized, so everything is bunched up and impossible to click on or get to. This is only happening on Firefox, everything is fine on Chrome and I.E.

I don't want to remove and reinstall Firefox as I have a lot of bookmarks and it'd be a huge hassle having to go through them to C&P etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I got a new update. I installed it and it said that some of the features were not installed because they incompatible with this version of Fire. I figured "Okay" and continued. When Firefox opened it said I have the "Newest" version. Great, then how come some of the features are not compatible with the "Newest" version. That makes no sense!

I'm running Windows 7 x64 SP1. I use the scroll wheel to click items in the task bar to open another instance of those items. Eg I scroll-click a Firefox or Excel or Explorer or whatever item in the taskbar, and it opens another instance of that program. I use this feature to open a new instance of FireFox rather than switching to the FF window, then using control-n to open a new window.

I just upgraded to FireFox 6 from FF4.x. Since doing so, scroll-clicking the FF item in the taskbar does not open a new FF window. It does, well, nothing.

I installed FF6 on a clean Win7 x86 (RTM) build in a VM. When I use the scroll-click feature in the taskbar, it works as expected: it opens a new FF window.

Things I have tried: A different mouse; updating video drivers (I doubted this would make a difference, but it needed to be done anyway, so I thought I'd mention it); running FF in safe mode (ie with all plugins etc disabled).

I'm doing a little experimentation right now with respect to x86/x64, RTM/SP1, clean FF6/upgrade from 4.x and other differences that might highlight why it works as expected in my VM but not on my physical machine.

I'm curious to know if anyone else has experienced this problem since upgrading to FF6.

I downloaded the update for the newest Firefox for installation on Fedora 11 64 bit Linux. I untarred it to the home directory and found the old version of Firefox launched when typing firefox in the terminal. A search for the old firefox was conducted which was found in /usr/bin, so I untarred the new firefox from /usr/bin as su. After this, firefox will not launch at all. Any suggestions on where to start? Thanks much.

PS: I believe Firefox 3.5.8 was running originally. See more system details for the command line troubleshooting information.

I read my e-mail from AOL on FireFox. In new mail when I click the "next message" down arrow it will function for a few times then grey out and become unresponsive. If I click on "new Mail" I will be able to use the arrow again for a few messages before it greys out again. If I use The AOL browser the "next message" button will function properly for all my messages. I use Windows XP and have not had this problem before. This problem also occurs withGoogle Chrome.
