When I use a shortcut (to open a web page at Yahoo.com) with the application Launchbar, if Firefox was not already launched, it launches, opens a blank window, then opens another window with the requested web page.

This problem is already listed in the list ofproblems, and it is stated that this has been corrected. IT HAS NOT.

As a matter of fact, this is new behaviour since 3.6.x

Thanks.

When I want to download something from the Internet, Firefox immediately begins the download either before I am allowed to chose the destination file or just after. I have little time or control to direct the download. This just started happening after an update. How can I change this?

I can't begin to tell you because the whole set up is a mess. Tiny print (regardless of instructions) pages won't open, often can not get access to page, and each time you make a change, it get's worse. With 2 new updates your requested me to make (3.7 & 3.8) I afraid my computer will be ruined. You also request I upgrade to adobe 10.1. I don't know how. Am I suppose to simply install it or do I uninstall 7.9 first and when will all your problems with firefox stop being my problems? How do I talk to a real person? You sure aren't like dealing with Apple. Firefox not user friendly unless you are a scientist.

I'm tired of shopping on a website and then going to a news site only to see ads from the shopping sites as if I'm being tracked and the ads are being customized for me. This happens all the time. I've recently seen Zappos.com and Bobbiebrown.com do this. Is there a way to prevent shopping sites from tracking me?

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

I used to be able to starting typing a web address whenever I opened a new tab. But ever since I did a Firefox update, now I get this address whenever I open a new tab: chrome://vuze_remote/content/aboutTabs.htm. So then I have to select that address and delete it before I can start typing a link in the window. How do I get the address window to be blank again when I open a new tab?

I have lost years of bookmarks upon upgrading from 3.5 to 3.6. None of the suggested solutions on forum have helped and in fact I don't see any responses from Mozilla just other users. I've reinstalled 3.5 as some other users said that reinstated their bookmarks but it did no good with mine. What's up Mozilla? Are you going to leave us all hanging out to dry without a fix to your really bad mistake. Help your users or you are going to lose many.
