Can you guys kindly point me to an object/api by which i can extract/access referrer information of a page.

Things like: 1) Referrer Url (I am already able to extract it) 2) path to current page (i.e. by clicking a link/ form submit in referrer page or through address bar) 3) whether user arrived at this page by clicking backward/forward button

For google chrome, I understand that the above information can be extracted through transition qualifiers (http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/webNavigation.html).

I would be most grateful if i am pointed to the right url / source within mozilla docs (not able to find it :().

I find multiple pages simultaneously opening in firefox when i try to open a link in stored bookmarks. It is splitting the about:home page in to two and displaying two pages simulataneously. I really like this.But is this feature intended. I find this behaviour intermittent and not happening for all the links. If firefox provides such a feature to open multiple windows at the same time it will be great other than the splitter add on

Running the latest version of FF (24.0) on Windows 7 x64. While multiple browser windows are open if a link in the current window opens in a new window the current window moves behind one or more of the other windows instead of being behind only the new window which opens on top of it. Is there a fix for this?

The tab's web site takes over the entire screen, even the Windows apps row at the bottom. Hitting ESC does nothing. If I close FF and re-start it, it goes back to the same state it was when I killed it. There are no FF control buttons so there is no way to reset it. The tab's web site occupies the entire screen. Help! I am using MS Internet Explorer to send this info as FF is presently useless.

locking as a dupe of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/976793

I have asked this question in another category and thought a change will hopefully get it answered. For example I save and quite on a webpage at a specific spot an article and lets say said article is fairly long, well I'm scrolled half way down when I last closed it when reopened however its has either scrolled up all the way to the top of the page or is scrolled up to close to the top. I have no idea what this is or where the problem would be located. I have already used the troubleshoot reset Firefox problem still persists. Did not have this issued on Firefox 24.

Hi, I want to increase the number of recently closed windows which Firefox remembers. It currently remembers three recently closed windows, but frequently when I click on hyperlinks (not pop-ups) they automatically open in new windows, which functionally deletes the record of windows I had open and wanted to refer to again... only now they're gone, seemingly forever. Is there some setting to change this? I don't need or want Firefox to remember my entire browsing history, I just want to be able to revisit 6 or 7 recently closed windows because 3 is not enough. Thanks.

Using Firefox 25.0 Yahoo Edition yahoo! 1.24. When I access a website that creates a .pdf , I can VIEW the file just fine in the Tab window...but when I used the "download" icon (upper right menu bar), the file that is created on my iMac, my Win7PC, my Win8 laptop and/or my old winXP cannot be viewed with Adobe XI...it says the file is "damaged".

HOWEVER, when I use the "Save Page As" option (instead of the Tab's "download" icon) ... the downloaded file works just fine with Adobe XI.

Would seem to be a bug???

I used to use new tab king, and when I opened a new tab, it would always open the new tab to the very right of my session, out of the way and not somewhere randomly in the middle. However, I wanted my restored windows to open where I had closed them in my session. I have since changed to use new tab plus instead, and it worked that same way before, but since I updated to firefox 26, it seems to have reset that option (as well as others), it opens in the middle of the session now instead of the end.

Alright, so about a month ago, I downloaded paint SAI. This was clearly mistake, since now everytime I open up a new tab in firefox, it immediately goes to findr, so now I cannot restore my tabs, or go to anything other that it. I thought that downloading a manual session manager add on and deleting the file would help make it go away. No, every time I go back to one of my previously used tab, a random, blank pop-up shows up. Not only that, but the 'new tabs page', it insted goes to some thing called wisersearch.com. I really have to know, how do I make my browser normal again? I mean, Firefox apparently just updated, and now it's spreading to my google chrome. I need to know, how can I completely delete all trace of whatever is doing this, and how do you get the standard new tab, most visited sites page back?

Somehow my new tab page changed. Instead of the new tab default page its search.conduit. I have tried typing in the about:config into the location bar and changing the browser.newtab.url back to about:newtab but it will not save my changes. I can type in the new address but as soon as I click ok it is still the search.conduit. I have checked I have no add ons and no added toolbars. I have tried everything.
