When I right click on a link, a very long menu comes up with lots of choices that have nothing to do with links (like "copy image"). When I select either "open in new window" or "open in new tab", nothing happens. I just updated to the newest version of FF yesterday (05-08-13). I have not customized anything since the new install. Before the new install everything worked fine.

when opening Firefox (or any browser), I get an hijack alert. Instead of home page I get "https://search.perk.com/perk/mystart" I apply action to block hijack but firefox opens to it anyway. The firefox home page is correct. The properties for firefox don't show anything related to "search.perk". Scan on hard drive doesn't reveal any program / script for perk.

any ideal on how to remove "search.perk"?

I always run Firefox in private browsing mode. Normally I don't accept cookies, but turn on the 'Accept cookies from sites' when necessary. Until recently when I've selected 'Accept cookies from sites', cookies have shown up in the 'cookies list'. Now they don't. As far as I can tell, I'm not doing anything differently. Resetting Firefox makes no difference.

I've looked at all the old topics where opening a site by entering a URL into the Windows Run box or clicking a shortcut invariably results in "Go to a website" greyed-out appearing in the address bar instead of the actual URL.

Again, disabling anything does... not... work.

And, for example, griping to a plugin provider such as Real also does... not... work.

Look over my troubleshooting list and tell me if I'm missing something here.

To log in on a public network without a password-key (not secured), a user login is required. After connecting to the network, the browser, upon opening it, normally automatically loads the login page, in order to enter a username and password and connect to the internet. Firefox doesn't find the login page automatically, so I need to switch to google Chrome just to log in to the network. Does this have anything to do with user settings in the options of firefox?

Any ideas?

thx!

I was using a theme which increased the height of tabs. Unfortunately, the theme conflicted with tab menu setting using the TabMixPlus extension. I am stuck with the default theme or others which do not increase the tab height. I have tried a variety of codes in userChrome.css to no avail. I am presently using the default theme with Firefox 20.0.1 (a Linux operating system).

Every time I turn my computer on, I click my Firefox icon in taskbar at bottom, BUT, not only does my homepage tab show up, but lately I have been seeing another tab showing up beside it called "New Tab" but it is Blank. I don't how it all of a sudden showed up, but I can't seem to get rid of it. I right click & "close tab", but I have to do this every time I turn on my computer. Isn't there a way to Permanently Remove this Tab so it doesn't keep showing up on my Tab Bar?

My Mozilla used to show Korean characters till last week, but now it displays them in shape of squares with tiny numbers. I've tried all kinds of encodings but they're still not shown. I'm sure that my computers has the East Asian Support for languages, it displays Korean files correctly but in all of my browsers ( Mozilla, Explorer and Chrome ), suddenly, Korean characters are shown as squares.

I'll be thankful to the one who can solve my problem, 'cuz Korean language displaying is really important to me.

I have Mozilla 20 Beta.
