I just got a new AIO with windows 8; not may favorite thing but I'm learning. I use Firefox as my browser exclusively but Window 8 help, of course, won't explain how to pin sites through other browsers. I had to set up my desktop on my start screen so I can open Firefox from there and then I can start browsing with Firefox - but there has to be an easier way....I've tried to search through the Firefox support but I'm an accountant, not a techie and this is getting very frustrating. lol I hope someone can explain to me how to do this. And in very small words please - remember I'm bean-counter. :) Thanks y'all.

I like the autofill feature for the Awesomebar, however a lot of the addresses that it autofills are addresses that I don't really use anymore, so I was wondering:

Is there is a way to remove entries from Location bar autofill or just reset them?

Note: I'm talking about removing-changing the address that Autofill will populate the location bar with, not removing entries from the suggestions list that pops up under the Location bar

Today, I noticed an advertisement on a page I visited. This advertisement was labelled "Download Keeper" and showed a few pictures with products and prices in dollars. I didn't expect such advertisements on the site in question and so I looked more closely at it. In the mark-up, I find a lot of elements containing classes starting with SF_ like SF_IIAD_EXPL and url's starting with http://www.superfish.com. Also, some javascript files are loaded from http://rvzr-a.akamaihd.net. Then, I looked at my add-ons and found 4 suspicious ones: DDoowload keeper 1.6 DoWnlOad KeeEper 1.6 Download keeper 1.6 DownnlOadd KeepEr 1.6 How could these have come here? I certainly didn't add them intentionally. Will they have come in with some software installer? Is there some way I can prevent these types of add-ons to be installed?

When I open a new tab, I would like it to open at the end of the row of tabs, not next to the tab I'm on now. I'm used to it opening on the end like it did in older versions of Firefox. I'm sure this is an easy fix but I can't find anything in options and I'm getting frustrated.

Thanks!

Each time I open a PDF Firefox makes me activate the Acrobat reader plugin. "Allow and remember" only remembers on a site-by-site basis. How do I get Firefox to always allow Acrobat reader plugin?

This behavior is really annoying and excessively controlling. Although years ago the Acrobat plugin was buggy, it has been stable for a long time. I don't care for the Firefox builtin pdf viewer and I want to continue to use the Adobe viewer.

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.

On my laptop running Windows 7, there is a check-box to print double sided. My new printer (old one perished in some excessive rainfall induced sewer failure) duplexes automatically, so I enjoy using that feature when possible. However, when I try to print on my new computer running Windows 8 (previous computer met same fate as printer), there is no place I can find to influence the dialog box to offer me duplex printing. Please help.
