I have Firefox version 5.0.1 on MS windows XP. My problem is that Firefox open a website automatically at a new tab from time to time which is very annoying. I have scanned my computer for viruses and malwares using lot of programs but this did not fix this annoying problem.

The websites which automatically open are:

- http://www.netadfusion.info/r.php
- http://www.humananatomycourse.com/
- http://www.lonelylonelylonely.com/

Any idea how to fix this problem?

Let me explain, when I open a webpage with a lot of images like for example an official thread about a game in a forum, the connection in Firefox is stuck, I mean It loads the web but not the images and saying "connecting with... " and It doesnt load any image.

But the weird thing is the connection is out forever, I mean if I go another website is still "connecting with..." and the only fix is reboot Firefox 6.

Also Let me explain what things I tried.

-IE and Google Chrome works fine. -Firefox 3.6.20 and Firefox 5.0.1 works fine. -APB+ disabled in Firefox 6, the problem is still there.

So I dont know what kind of problem this thing has, also browsing with 5.0.1 its not safe right? because its not longer supported.

I've a macbook pro, OS X 10.6.5, Firefox 5.0.1. Each time I try to load a web page, also a simple Google search or a Facebook post, Firefox hang on "connecting" for many seconds, with nearly no network I/O activity at all. Then, after 30/40 seconds, the page magically loads quickly. The problem doesn't happen with Safari or Google Chrome.

I have tried two ways to mark my Homepage: General Tab "use current" at selected Page - then OK. Then I tried the suggested moving that page's icon to the "home" icon and confirming that I want THAT page as my Home Page.

When I open a new window, I only get the 3 pages I got when I upgraded to new version of Firefox - these methods do not hold my desired page as a "Homepage"

Lately whenever I go to download a file from the Internet it gives me a message I've never seen before. It says a file name (which doesn't exist on my pc) then tells me that I need to either change the properties of the file or try downloading to another file. But the download box never pops up anymore and it says this for everything I try to download. What's going on?

In the past few days I have been getting the following popup when I use firefox as my browser: Exc in ev handl: Error: Bad NPObject as private data!

I assume it came from your latest update. I have windows vista with a 64 bit processor, and I am using the latest version of firefox. I checked to see if I was getting the same error message with explorer and I am not. It appears to be some sort of conflict with java script. Can this be corrected?
