I've been using Firefox for quite a while, but it has recently begun opening every previously open tab when I restart a session. I only want the tabs I selected for my home page to open. I've tried going to the options and selecting "Show a blank page" on startup, but even that is ignored and all of the prior tabs open on each new start. I've rebooted the computer and restarted Firefox, but the problem remains.

Clicking on a pdf attachment in AT&T/Yahoo Mail results in "a file was downloaded". Used to open the file in Firefox 25.0 and prior. Switching to IE I can click on the attachment and it opens. Seems it could be something in 25.0.1. I cleared my history (cache, cookies) but this did not fix the problem. I disabled the pdf viewed and that didn't help either.

On my Add-ons Manager, under the Plugins tab, I have 2 Shockwave Flash plugin... Shockwave Flash 11.9.900.117 and Shockwave Flash 8.0.22.0 I think I know why I have the other older version of Flash... It is because I recently installed Macromedia Flash 8... However, what I want is to remove the Shockwave Flash 8.0.22.0 plugin on Firefox without completely uninstalling it from my computer... is that possible?

I've tried deleting the history from the firefox and selecting all of the boxes so that site preferences are supposed to be deleted. I've tried going to the options tab and using advanced network option to clear the cache. I don't understand why the site suggestions are still coming up in the address bar when I type any letter in there are still a range of sites that I have visited yet they don't show up in my history. CONFUSED MUCH?

Recently updated to Firefox 25, Windows 7 and noticed that pages load slowly if at all. I then realized that pages loaded if I had my cursor in motion. Likewise, I noticed videos loaded fine but played audio straight through. The video only "moved" when the cursor is in motion. Otherwise it freezes. Don't know if it's a hardward problem, but I don't get this on IE. Have tried disabling all add-ons, no change. Have reset FF, no change. Please advise.

Hi I am a new user, so am not yet fully aware of Firefox usage.

I use http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/ site many times every day. The site in general is mostly perfectly OK, but one of the links I use all the time doesn't behave in a usable way. The link on the main page is:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business/market_data/ticker/markets/default.stm, which does open, but in a new window without scroll bars. I can re size the window, but not enough to view all the contents.

If I use the link address in a new tab, everything works fine and the scroll bars are present.

I am migrating from the Opera browser and in Opera, when I use the embedded link it does open a new window but does have the scroll bars present.

Is this a Firefox issue, or maybe the site is the source of this problem - I couldn't guess which.

BTW the BBC web site is region based, and for non UK users, it may serve totally different pages.

I have looked through a bunch of FF options, but so far haven't found anything that could be relevant to the problem.

Hello, I am writing as I am experiencing some issues with my favorite web browser after updating to Windows 8.1. Here are some details. I updated from Windows 8.0 to Windows 8.1 and ever since Firefox has run somewhat strangely. In particular when on sites with a lot of images like Facebook. It is like there is some kind of Flikr effect between the desktop and the images and between the images and the browser (almost like old 16 bit video games flikering). It is not too bad but it is an issue. I have tried resetting firefox and restarting the computer. I haven't tried a repair, and I haven't done an uninstall yet.

The support topic on this question says to look for a "pin" icon in the upper left corner of the browser. I do not show one. Firefox used to just automatically populate my new tabs page with the thumbnails, but it is no longer doing that, and I don't know how to fix it. I downloaded some freeware that changed a number of browsing options (default browser, added Bing bar without my full knowledge, etc.). Got that all removed but then Firefox wasn't working well, so I had to uninstall/reinstall the program. Now my thumbnails are gone and I can neither get them back nor create new ones. Help! Cheers, Dolly

Before the recent update of Firefox, I was able to use the Find... (Ctrl + F) feature to find a certain phrase on all tabs that I had open, as the find bar would show up on all tabs even when I just opened it on one tab.

But now, opening the find bar on one tab will not open it on other tabs, therefore I have to keep pressing Ctrl + F on each and every tab, even though I'm searching for the same term on all of the tabs I have open. This has become quite the hassle. Is there a way to fix this? Without downgrading my firefox or installing an addon.

By the way, this happened after closing firefox for a little bit, then it updated. I did not do anything for this to happen, nor did I install anything.

Thank you.

Hello,

I know this issue came up quite a few times but i can't manage to get proper help on this. I'm using Firefox (latest) and i'm getting pretty serious crashes ONLY when navigating . just writing this is a pain since i've crashed twice till here.

so i have a Phenom X4 920 black edition, M4N72-E with latest bios update. and i don't know why, but ONLY when firefox is opened it freezes and i have to reset everything..so i've heard java is responsible, other are saying Net framework, others are saying firefox...so before going back to a 32bit version where i can't use all my RAM but where i don't actually punch my screen, i come here to you to get help..

maybe some of you have good advices maybe on CPU voltage or whatever bugs firefox is creating in conflict with other programs..i'll be grateful.

and so you know, i can run at full power a simulator without crashes but i open firefox and write " ate some cookies" on facebook and there it goes... ^_^ ...so any ideas ?

I cannot remove web developer, however I never wanted to install it.

about:config does not work, neither reinstalling Firefox....

Is there any solution other then switching to Chrome??
