I upgraded to 6.0.1 and experimented with the tab groups. Now I cannot turn it off. It seems to force the same tabs to be opened with the next session. I had (and still have) the warn me when I close multiple tabs. It overrides that option if I click the close the window. It just closes the firefox window and reopens all the tabs with the next session. This nullifies the best feature that firefox had over chrome.

Please help me to get my old Firefox back...

If, say, the URL of a web site is put in the address bar and Firefox opens it in a new tab in the normal way then the firefox window looses focus, the window's bar at the top greys out. I have to click the page to restore focus.

This has a much greater irritation value than it may sound.

Same thing with clicking a website from, say, google.

When I try to go to or close almost every web site. The message appears at least twice. This has happened since I upgrade to 6.0.1 (which I did as my previous version was crashing every 30 seconds or so!) While I can still do what I need to this is most time consuming and annoying. Anyone have an idea?

I recently downloaded Firefox 6, and Facebook was working fine but all of a sudden yesterday it started loading all content down the center column instead of on the left & right side. I noticed on their Help wall, that others are having the same problem - I tried clearing the cookies & cache but this did not help. Also, my facebook profiles on other browsers are using FF 6 and are loading just fine. Any ideas?

Woke up to find my Firefox was updated automatically to Ver 6+. The usual issues arose, with a few plugins not working. The annoying one is the Adobe flash player. I downloaded the latest Flash player and installed Ver 10, however non of my webpages pick up on this. Any Flash content I wish to view (from a webpage) tells me to install the latest Flash player. Have done so 3 times to no avail? Any ideas? NB: Switched on IE and flash worked fine on same websites.

How can I do this?

I just upgraded to Firefox 6.0.1 and Firefox now says that the website https://www.focusireland.ie is not trusted because because no issuer chain was provided. There is no problem with the SSL Cert (you can check the site URL here - http://www.digicert.com/help/) so why has this error suddenly shown up? I have made no changes to the site and the Cert is valid for another year. It used to work perfectly with no error message but now it shows the error. I know that I can make an exception on my browser but this makes the site look unsecure for any other users. It is a major problem as this site is for a large Registered Irish Charity and it will have a big impact on donations.

This site works perfectly on all other browsers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank You!
