Since upgrading to Firefox 10.0.2 my AVG extension has had to be disabled, as after typing in any web address in the address bar, the enter key had no effect and I could not go to the site without pressing the Reload arrow on right.

I have recently upgraded Firefox to the latest version 10.0.2. After that I could not enter any website address and press the enter key and get to the website, nor could I select a website from the dropdown list of previously visited websites. The only way I could get there was by pressing the arrow on the right side of the address box (Reload current page). Once I disabled the AVG extension, everything worked normally. As soon as I enabled the AVG extension, it stopped working again.

The latest Flash download has incapacitated Foxtab, I have UN-installed it several times only to discover it goes back to original state when I re-install. I have UN-installed Firefox 4 times and this has made NO difference. There is clearly something VERY wrong with the Adobe Flash download.

I have great difficulty updating Firefox . I'm told: " "The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again."'

However, there are no other copies of Firefox running. I tried rebooting the PC just to be sure all Firefox processes had been terminated but problem persists. Both user accounts of my PC have administrative privileges. After trying to update Firefox for both users a number of times, it eventually updates, but process takes many tries and much time.

Following the update to Firefox 10.0.2 for Windows (running on XP), all group tabs were lost and only the opened group of tabs were restored. This has happened with previous updates as well. Any thoughts?

I tend to use groups in a way to allow me to have different sets of resources available by simply switching to a different set of groups, i.e., a group for technical sources, a group for social sites, a group for email, a group for online shopping, a group for travel information, etc.. With some previous updates, there has been no loss of these group tabs and I did not receive the session restore page when Firefox restarted. With the update to 10.0.2, the session restore page was presented when Firefox restarted, and when it did restore, it only restored the tabs from the group that was open when it closed to install the update. All of the other, (perhaps 14-16), groups were gone and could not be restored via History or in any other method that I've been able to determine. Is there a way to periodically save all of the open tabs *and* group tabs so I can restore the basic sets of tabs and groups that I use if they are lost?

For about a month now whenever I "save as" such as images(doesn't matter what type) or try "save page as" it will automatically add a ".rb" file extension to the original extension. So if the image is called "image.jpg" it will look like "image.jpg.rb" and its really starting to get aggravating to keep deleting the extra extension every time I want to save something. The only thing that doesnt do this are programs and zip files and such. I also tried "saving as" on other browsers and it doesn't affect those. Its only on Firefox. I have updated firefox a few time after this has happened and nothing helps.

Logging in to several financal sites (most work ok) results in a message stating that the computer is not recognzed and asks a security question if I wish to continue and want to register this computer (as opposed using a public computer) . The next time around, after registering the computer, I get asked the same thing. Seems like the Adobe flash stuff is not sticking for some sites. Any solution ?

After the recent updates, the browser refuses to load a new home page at start. It "remembers" the old address, always. Probably it has not altered the registration line after the change even though it appears to have at that session. Therefore, when open again, it reverts back to the old home page address. Cheers.
