Why does opening in a new background tab work less and less?

It seems so simple. You're reading a page and run into a link you want to read later. You use the standard Control+Click to load it in a background tab leaving your present reading uninterrupted. But more and more often you're taken to the new tab immediately which means you are not only interrupted from your present reading but have to remember to go back to where you were (not a habit when you're used to opening in background tabs and closing them cleanly when finished) and find where you where on what may be a multi-page document. Often tens of pages. Wasted time.

Is there any way of making Control+Click work properly? One sure fire but more long winded way is to right click and hit T. That seems foolproof.

Mozilla Firefox update display

I am using the older version of Mozilla Firefox and do not want to download a new version at the moment. Up to now the Firefox settings offered the choice to 1. " Install updates automatically (recommended)", 2. "check for updates, but ask before installation", and 3. "do not check for updates".

Currently, the third option "do not check for updates" is no longer displayed in the Firefox browser window, and each time Firefox is opened, an update display opens in the upper right corner, which does not close automatically, and it is necessary to close this update display manually.

It should be up to me as a Firefox user to decide if and when I want to update Firefox. It should also be possible to choose whether or not the update display should continue to be shown when Firefox is opened.

I teach classes that use Adobe Connect and Flash. In trying to login this week, the window is zoomed in and I can't zoom out. When I try, only the pane with text and attendee list shrinks. I don't have the problem with Safari but I like Firefox better. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, Adobe Connect and Adobe Flash. The problem continues even after doing this.

How do I change/customize key commands (hotkeys) in Firefox?

I'd like to be able to remap most of the key commands in Firefox to be more ergonomic such as

  • Ctrl-h: select tab left instead of Ctrl-tab
  • Ctrl-l: select tab right instead of Ctrl-shift-tab
  • Ctrl-j: scroll down half a page instead of Space
  • Ctrl-k: scroll up half a page instead of Shift-space
  • etc

Is it possible to change these key commands by configuring Firefox or modifying its configuration files? I've considered setting up an external program to remap keys when the Firefox window is focused, and compiling Firefox from source, but I'd like to know if it's possible without doing this.

Hi!

I just bought a new computer with Windows 10 Pro, and use the Adobe Creative Cloud suite with Adobe Acrobat DC. With my old computer, with Windows 10 Home, I can convert a webpage to PDF with the Adobe plug-in. FIrefox is updated and current.

On my new computer, the plug-in is no where to be found. I have looked in Add ons... Extensions, etc, but it simply is not there.

I did find a place to have PDFs open in Acrobat DC, but where is the plug-in or extension to enable the conversion of a web page to PDF with Adobe Acrobat DC?

Thank you,

-)

Since update to version 81. a few days ago, my flash player ( adobe ) is not working properly on Facebook Farmville game. Page loads and prompts me for flash - but when page loads up it is way way oversized and unable to get it to normal size. Unable to play the game at all on Firefox browser.

I have spent a few days trying everything I could think of ( including re-installing adobe flash player). I have found no fix.  I now have to use my google chrome browser to play my daily game, of which I am not happy..  don't personally like google. 
Do you have any suggestions ..  or can I go back to the previous version of firefox, where I had no problem with flash player?
