Something I've observed since at least today is that if I have more than one pinned tab, and I close Firefox then start it again (it is set to open my default homepage), my 'focused' tab by default is the right-most pinned tab. If I have one pinned tab, the homepage is focused as it should be.

I have tried starting Firefox with a -safe-mode and gotten the same result, however starting a new profile didn't seem to carry over the problem, therefore my problem is restricted to this profile (but at the same time, has nothing to do with my extensions).

I do not recall making any changes to the browser by myself (I'm careful about it, so I'm pretty sure about that regard). Whatever the problem is, it has crept in from somewhere else.

I tried resetting what few changed about:config entries I have, but have had no solution, and it's a minor annoyance, but it's driving me up the wall because if I have a homepage, I expect it to be open when I start the browser!

Hello!

I have a problem in the chat (German). An user can't install Firefox anymore. It gives the error message, not having the required rights to install. The user couldn't uninstall Firefox before but had to as it was not able to start Firefox again. The reason maybe was a addon-bar that he don't know how it appeared there.

Do you have an idea how to solve it?

Firefox has stopped opening links from a search when I click on them. I get a new tab with "about:blank" in the address bar. I think this problem just started today, after a lot of Windows Updates this morning, Chrome isn't having a problem. Is anyone else having this problem with Firefox and have any idea which windows update is causing the problem?

Using Win 7 64-bit. Everything suddenly disappeared from firefox except the URL line. When I ran a checkdisk, there was corruption in a bunch of files. May have caused the problem. Went to try the mozilla support reset suggestion. Can't do it because I have no Firefox icon in top left corner to click and thus can't get into Help menu or anything except what I can access through the URL line. Can't find any other advice on what to do. Is uninstalling Firefox and starting over the only answer? Won't I lose bookmarks, add ons, etc? Thanks.

This , above, is the message I get agter I sign on to my password protected PC. I am not overly technical and am not confident with program files. I don't what RH120.bpl does but am worried that it may somehow place the security of my PC at risk. The funny thing is - the computer does start up and run.

In one of the recent updates of Firefox, I think I was offered a choice of opening it in the minimized mode, and foolishly chose that. Now, every time I load Firefox, it is in the minimized mode, and I have to restore it to open it. Not a big problem, but annoying. How do I undo this setting? This only occurs on my desktop. It still opens in the viewable mode on my laptop, which is running windows 7.

my address book was hacked and 100s of emails sent in my names with a blank pdf file. No one could open the pdf and some people got warning notices of the malware. Since you have the storage of my address book, I am assuming that is how the hacker got in. I have since changed my setup, but there are still notices in my box about failed delivery and others from people who did not recognize it as malware and tried to open the pdf. I have tried to find a way to report this to you, but this appears to be the only way.

The page titles and URLs are not displaying in the location bar dropdown that should display the history. The page icons are there on the left, as they normally are, but all the text is missing.

I recently had to end the firefox process as my browser was hanging. The problem has been occurring since then.

Wireless lap top computer: Internet speed to this computer is about 18mb up load 3mb. runs great

PC computer: I have been having problems with downing loading short video such as a YouTube. I have tested cables for modem and router. For this computer I have less then 1mb download and 2.3mb upload. Defrag, cookies, disc, all are as they should be, 4 ram, and Charter Security Suite up to date.

Is it possible Mozilla is part of the problem with the PC slow download and higher up-load?
