If I start a download of some large files and f0r some reason say, I've to go out and thus have to turn off my PC while the download is still on. How can I resume the download, the other day from where I left rather than starting it all over again from 0%?

Firefox opens multiple (up to 30) windows despite following help for "Firefox keeps opening many tabs or windows," & there's no malware. How can I fix this?

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 620 running Windows 7 Professional. 64-bit. I have ZoneAlarm Security Suite, which does daily virus scans, and Webroot SpySweeper, which does a daily scan for spyware. Neither has found any virus or threatening spyware (just cookies I could delete myself). I keep running various deep scans, including Malwarebytes, TDSS Killer and BitDefender Removal Tool TDSS TDL4, and no malware shows up. I've cleared cookies, cache, etc. and restarted.

I made a new desktop shortcut, which helped for a couple of times opening Firefox, then the problem came back.

I downloaded and ran Revo Uninstaller in Advanced setting, then reinstalled Firefox. Helped a couple of times, then the problem came back.

I checked the Firefox help link. No programs are set to use Firefox. I deleted mimeTypes.rdf according to the directions, then restarted Firefox. Same problem remains.

I've completely cleared history, but after once or twice opening Firefox, the problem returns. I've restarted my computer after the above.

Hello,

I was using Internet Explorer 9 as my default browser. I downloaded Firefox and imported everything over, but Adobe Flash Player is not on Firefox. It's asking to manually install the Plug-in and, after I click the icon, it doesn't install.

Since I already have flash player installed, which works fine in IE, how do I fix this problem?

Thank you.

Hi. I have been running firefox since it first came out. I remember it made internet explorer look like your were browsing on dialup no joke. Anyhow, with the latest firefox it runs very slow on my laptop. My laptop is older. It's a HP 6735s. I tried a different browser - Opera. Opera runs perfectly fine on this laptop but does not display everything corrects(forms,buttons). I did notice Opera uses way more memory than firefox.

Is there anything I can do to speed up firefox or make it use more memory? Currently if I try running firefox in safemode it uses at least 80% cpu usage and does the same w/o safemode. I really would like to continue using firefox as it does seem the best browser. Is my laptop too old to run firefox? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

I am using a Mac OSX 10.6.8. & Firefox 5.01. Certain pages have overlapping text which sometimes results in partialy covering some click boxes. If I use Chrome or Safari they are ok on same pages. The example below will show a little of what I mean but on this site in particular when I go into it further the problem increases and I cannot for example access my account because the button I need to click on is covered over with text

I just downloaded Firefox to my Mac. Now there is a permanent icon of Firefox on my desktop. Not the Firefox icon though, it is a blue diskdrive icon with a white fox on it.

Also, when I open Firefox a window opens up that has another firefox icon with an arrow beside it pointing to my Applications folder. This happens everytime I open firefox.

How do I get rid of these?

How do I disable transparency for the menubar and addressbar in firefox? (This does not mean disable windows aero or transparency in windows 7. A workaround has been posted. Stop spamming threads with disable transparency and aero everytime someone asks about this.) It is difficult to read.

Edit: Is there a setting to tone down the Aero usage of the in Firefox 5 so it looks more like Firefox 3.6. Is there a way to do this in the preferences or inside about:config?

I know what Aero is and how to turn it off.

The 2nd reply has images attached show why it is difficult to read. An light spot on a desktop background or an icon can make it very difficult to read. This is the #1 reason why I keep going back to 3.6.

I was trying to copy/cut a link from my Address Bar, and I must have hit some really obscure keyboard shortcut and messed up how the address bar shows webpage URLs. Now it shows them over to the right side instead of the left. Here's a picture of what it looks like:

http://oi51.tinypic.com/123w8yf.jpg

This absolutely bothers me and I want my URLs to be back toward the left. How do I fix this? What weird CTRL or CTRL+SHIFT command did I hit?
