My FF decided on 12/1/2012 to open in browser, overriding my settings. No matter what I do, how I change settings, PDFs open in FF. I even totally uninstalled Acrobat 11 and reinstalled Acrobat 10. Still opens in browser (so does that mean it's FF causing the problem?)

My settings in FF were to open in Reader, overridden. Changed to save file. Overriden. No matter what I do, PDFs open in FF. My settings in FF for years have been to open in Adobe, but now I cannot find the setting!

So now, haha, PDF opens in FF and FLASH is mucked up. So I've increased the problems and spent an hour and a half. Can you help? What am I (or they) doing wrong?

Is there a function, add-on, etc that will regularly send activity to a web site to prevent it from automatically logging me out due to inactivity? There are several sites that I would like to keep up in my tabs for monitoring purposes, but they have ridiculous time-out periods of 5 to 15 minutes. I get tired of having to log in all over again each time I want to check up.

I have tried malwarebytes, adaware, revo, superantispyware, etc. nothing will get rid of whitesmoke. I even uninstalled firefox and re-installed it. I have IE and it doesn't have whitesmoke, I downloaded Chrome and it doesn't have whitesmoke. I guess I will use other browsers until I can fix this.

Recently there had been problems with Yahoo Mail and java, I updated but still unable to use it. The strange thing is that I have a PC (XP) whre it will not work and a laptop (win 7 ) where it does work. Both computers have the latest update of Java and both have the most current version of FF. Anyone have any ideas why one works and the other does not. Maybe it is not java, but I can't think of anything else. Open to suggestions. Thanks

Under Tools>Options>General I have the browser set when I open the browser to "open up a blank page" but it keeps opening up previous tabs from the day before. How can I stop this? I read the forum boards but either did not find it or overlooked the answer. I checked all my other settings and cannot find anything that would be causing this. Please advise?

My FF was just auto updated to 18.0.1 today and now when I close FF it does not save my tabs. I have always had "When FF starts" set to "Show my windows and tabs from last time".

I saw an earlier 14.0.1 problem that said delete sessionstore.js files but when my FF is closed there is no sessionstore file in my FF Profile folder. Is that the problem? What needs fixing so I have a sessionstore file across sessions?

Thanks.

I understand that there are patent problems in the issue with Firefox. But i'm just wondering will there ever be support for H.264 and other video formats while using HTML5 on only without the addition of the Flash Plugin. While the Flash Plugin works with all video formats that i've encountered, it is also troublesome to use as it crashes quite easily. Not only that, on certain videos it hogs 40% of my Processing power, or uses 30% of my RAM. This is way too much just for a normal video/audio plugin to watch videos online.

I have an odd problem. I have a Logitech M305 mouse on another machine that is scrolling too slow on Web pages. I ordered a new mouse but today I noticed the old mouse scrolls normally on text documents, even if the text document is displayed in Firefox (such as the "about:config" page).

Normally, a page will scroll 3 lines for every click of the mouse scroll wheel. On Web pages this changes and it takes 3 clicks of the mouse wheel to get the page to scroll.

It is unsettling to move the mouse wheel and have nothing happen until the third click.

So the question is, what would make the mouse scroll wheel behave differently on Web pages and text pages, and how can I fix it?

BTW, this is a clean install of Windows 7 64-bit. I am using the exact same type of install right now on another machine with a Logitech M510 mouse and it scrolls normally on all pages.
