Even when I highlighted in a seperate window that I want PDF open automatically with the PDF reader I always get this confirmation window to choose from. Is there a way to stop getting this confirmation window ? To perform a test I had with IE browser that by default selected PDF reader it does not ask me each time which option to choose from.

Just updated to version 15. When I click a link that opens into a new window or tab, if it is a new window it loads fine but if it is a new tab it goes through the motions of loading but gives me a blank screen - although the tab header shows information relating to the new page. I have also used the 'Open All in Tabs' feature, and each page's info has loaded into the tab to its left, with the rightmost tab blank - although the tab preview shows the correct page information for each page.

Firefox keeps asking if I want to restore the previous session and this has been a problem since Firefox 4.

I have told Firefox to not save any history or cookies and also clear everything when Firefox closes, I have told it to show my homepage when Firefox is starting and I have tried deleting sessionstore.js. I use the following settings in about:config

browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo 0 browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo 0

browser.sessionstore.privacy_level 2 browser.sessionstore.privacy_level_deferred 2 browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash false

I'm currently using Firefox 15 beta with no add-ons on Windows Vista. Firefox sometimes doesn't ask if I want to restore the session, but only if I did close it from the drop down menu and not the x button. Firefox is closing properly.

Thanks in advance.

This site works fine in Safari but not in the latest version of Firefox on 2 of my computers:

http://ase.tufts.edu/biology/labs/levin/resources/books.htm

I've cleared cache, restarted, etc. - no good. On Safari, I see a bunch of tiled thumbnails for various books on Amazon. On Firefox, I see absolutely no thumbnails, just rows of text and horizontal lines (I can't figure out how to upload attachments here).

Suddenly, I am having problems loading games on fb (words w/friends, Word Trick, Bingo Blitz, etc.) and do not have the same issue in other browsers. Starting in safe mode has not helped and neither has disabling all of the add ons. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the latest flash player, checked all other plugins & extensions thru ff tech support website. please fix this problem as I HATE OTHER BROWSWERI am so frustrated trying to fix the "sudden" issue with my facebook games not loading. Words w/friends, bingo blitz etc. I do not have the problem when using Internet Explorer or Chrome so firefox is the problem.

I have spent days starting firefox in safemode, disabling add-ons, combing thru help pages in firefox & on facebook sit.  I have the troubleshooting info, but don't know how to submit to you .... please help  as i hate the other browsers.

I am on the beta channel and one would think that Firefox would want to and have an easy way to report issues, but that does not seem to be the case.

Anyway I have found that FireFox 15 just closes unexpectedly from time to time. It does not seem to be a crash (ie there is no freeze nor is there any restart attempt) it just closes--seems to be just like I intentionally closed the program. I would say that it does this every couple of hours--a pain if I am in the middle of something and have not saved, but mostly just annoying. If I leave the computer for any period of time with FireFox open, when I return to the computer Firefox is almost always closed. I have found this to be the issue for both 15.0b1 and 15.0b2.

Thought that someone might want to know; though since there is no way to report such issues I have my doubts. Not sure what the reason is to have us on beta.

FF 15 is constantly jumping from a normal screen to full screen and when it does I loose my menu bar, Navigation Bar, my tabs and my Task Bar. I have to sit with my finger on F11 so I can switch it back when it jumps to full screen. I have tried setting my options and that doesn't help. I know that it will probably be a year (if ever) before anyone replies to this with any help but it's worth a shot.

I've been having a problem on my work PC for a couple of months now, and only found 1 other person suffering from this. The PC is running the newest version of FF just like all my other machines (both mac and PC) but when I try to use the google search box up there *nods upwards* to the right the google page doesn't load I just get a load of these symbols:

��?�ڷ0�^��d�df2����U��?e��n[����?�Վs�9�=�["�Ba+? �B�GA�?ﶡ�*�ɗ_�??�:��m���?

The weird thing is, I have located a URL for google search that doesn't do this, and I can use it normally through this, but if I click on any other google links (video, shopping, help, forums, gmail) it reverts straight back to the symbols. This is also happening on twitter, I can't load ANYTHING form twitter either.

I know it sounds like a google problem, but it's only hapening on this one machine, with FF, all other machines I can use google fine, and obviously through my workaround link I can use google, so I suspect I've broken Firefox :)

Any help would be appreciated.
