Every time I turn my computer on, I click my Firefox icon in taskbar at bottom, BUT, not only does my homepage tab show up, but lately I have been seeing another tab showing up beside it called "New Tab" but it is Blank. I don't how it all of a sudden showed up, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I right click & "close tab", but I have to do this every time I turn on my computer. Isn't there a way to Permanently Remove this Tab so it doesn't keep showing up on my Tab Bar?

Hello, I've used Firefox for years, but last time I migrated to Chrome. I'ld like to come back, but I have problems with blur / fuzzy fonts on Firefox.

Before I create this question, I checked several topics. - Disable HA - no results - Use Anti-Alias Tuner - no results - change gfx.content.azure.enabled etc. - no results

I tried several version - stable, ESR, beta, aurora... still without results. Change graphics driver... nothing.

Last option - I compared fonts in Firefox and Chrome during changing settings. All is very silimiar, except one details - alias colors, see:

I think, this may cause blur effect and tired eyes. Is it possible, to change this?

My problem lies with the about:home page.

when I click home, it goes to the firefox start page. I can't search anything there.

When I type something in, and press "Search" (the blue button), it doesn't do anything. If I use the address bar or the search beside it, it works, but it won't work on the about:home.

Any suggestions? I've added the troubleshooting information as well using the plugin

Hi,

I've been using Firefox for man years, on all my devices.

But since yesterday, on my main PC, Firefox crashes constantly.

It appears to be random, on various sites, at various times (ie 10 seconds after restarting, or 10 minutes after restarting).

I have tried:

- Resetting Firefox. - Reinstalling Firefox. - Disabling/re-enabling extensions or plugins (though I don't believe I updates any since yesterday when the crashing started).

It's really annoying, and I've had to use Chrome (gulp) today. :-(

In light of the latest Firefox and the fact that it does not listen to my download retention setting and that "browser.download.panel.removeFinishedDownloads" no longer exists, how do I clear the download history automatically after each download without clearing browser history too? If this is not an option then it is either a serious bug or an important feature removed. If this continues, this is a big reason for me to discontinue using firefox. Really guys! Why?!

Hi, all :)

Lately, I've been having a problem with some links: they become unclickable when zooming in(Ctrl + Mouse Wheel), but when doing some mild zooming out, it becomes clickable again.

Here are some screenshots I've taken, to make my problem clearer:

http://i.imgbox.com/adlB9NtJ.png As you can see, when zoomed in so it would fill the screen, the mouse cursor isn't detecting any hyperlink and clicking on it won't link me to the desired page.

http://i.imgbox.com/adyPwwFh.png In here, as you can see from the mouse cursor, after zooming out a little, it becomes clickable again.

I would really appreciate if anyone could offer any solution to this. Thanks.

The Logitech mouse is a Logitech Anywhere MX Dark Field with Logitech Control Center for Mac OS X v3.6.0. I'm using Firefox 20 in Mac OSX 10.6.8. The problem has only been detecting after updating the browser to version 20. I have not customized the Back key on the mouse for any other function other than returning to previous page. Same configuration and Control Center version was being used before with Firefox previous versions without any issues.
