How do I stop all those annoying, very thin popup banners that show up at the bottom of the page? I am tired of these unwanted banners.

At the very bottom of most pages, I get these thin, annoying banners all the time. They relate to so many different things it is difficult to list them all. From Facebook page info to adverts. They do have a very small x at the end (be careful which x you chose) that will close them down but not all can be done away with. Some just fold to the side of the page. I still do not want these annoying banners.

How do I get rid of them? I've tried everything listed on the help pages and nothing is working.

It used to be that - unless my Firefox process crashed - when I opened my browser it would open on my designated home page. That's what's in my options. But with the most recent version it restores all of the tabs that were open at the end of the last session. That's not the desired behavior and not the way I have my options set.

I installed Adobe Reader XI on Win7 x86, followed by update of FFox to v19 (apparently the latest browser release). Adobe Reader works normally, and I can open PDFs for viewing in FFox 19, but it seems FFox 19 -will- -not- display the standard toolbar for Adobe Reader XI. Instead, the only options are a 'download' button, a 'slider' button, 'page count' and 'next/prev page'. In contrast, IE8 -will- display the standard Adobe Reader XI toolbar, near the top of the open window. I don't know whether the problem is with Adobe or with FFox 19, and until there is a fix or some kind of work-around, I don't want to update any of my other machines.

Ever since I was upgraded to FF 16.0.1 I have a terrible time playing anything with Flash, like online games or videos on YouTube. All my plugins are up to date and this constant crashing is driving me crazy. I don't like Chrome, but I'm going to be forced to use it if I can't find a fix for this crashing! Absolutely everything is up to date on my computer. I had it serviced about a month ago, something I do every year. This crashing is directly related to the forced upgrade as nothing else has changed. Can we get this fixed please. I feel that things are being rushed lately and I think we'll have a better product if more time is taken to test before it's rolled out.

Thanks

При двойном нажатии комбинации клавиш "Ctrl + Shift + L" всплывает непонятное диалоговое окно с двумя кнопками: "ОК" и "Unshared". Нажатие на эти кнопки не приводит к какому либо результату(по крайней мере видимому мне). Пробовал отключать дополнения и проделывать те же действия - результат аналогичный.

Screenshot: http://smotr.im/81bA

When you double-click shortcut "Ctrl + Shift + L" incomprehensible dialog box pops up with two buttons: "OK" and "Unshared". These buttons does not lead to any result or (at least seems to me). Tried to disable the addon and doing the same action - the result of the same.

I have updated to Mozilla 16.0.1 and yahoo toolbar 2.4.8.20120412011105. Search assist now no longer works on the toolbar, nor does the enter key. I've reinstalled both Mozilla and the yahoo toolbar. I've followed the instructions given in the customize toolbar section, but I am thinking that perhaps this toolbar just doesn't work with Mozilla?

The issue of occasionally getting a redirect to "wyciwyg://(number)/http://(regular URL)" in the Firefox address bar, when trying to return to some previously visited sites, has NOT been fixed.

  NONE of the previously entered alleged fixes, are fixes, or they would work for me, and they do not. A "fix", would fix it, period! 
  My workaround: simply highlight the part preceding the correct protocol and URL, delete it, and the remaining address works.
  But no Mozilla coders have come up with a way to absolutely PREVENT this from occurring. And it is very disconcerting. Others had it happen for different but specific addresses for them, I have had it only for trying to return to my yahoo.com email address by any of several methods. I have tried EVERY suggestion posted. It happens on two different computers running Win7: Pro32bit purchased retail, and Home64bit on a "stock" Dell laptop. I also experienced it on an XP Pro computer decommissioned last year.

Most of my icons are blank in my bookmarks, next to the website I got a new computer With win 7 and imported them from my old computer. I've deleted some of the websites and relaoded them, still blank, for example BB&T bank. I've installed the plugin that's supposed to correct this. From a Google search I'm not the only one having a problem with this. This is driving me nuts. All the icons, or what ever they are called show up in IE, and my old computer This has to be something simple Thanks Karen

Well the question basically says it all. Starting a couple of weeks ago, i have not been able to command click links to open in new tabs (I am on a mac, OS X 10.6.8). This includes links to google books as well as library links. This only happens on google scholar. It also happens in 'safe mode'. I have contacted google support who have stated that this is a browser issue. They have not changed the coding of the scholar site. This is very frustrating. I have used FF for years and am now going to have switch to Safari, whose own command click function continues to work in google scholar. Any thoughts/ suggestions?
