So, my most used action within Firefox was utilizing the middle mouse button in order to open a new tab on a link. Now suddenly after a format on my PC, the middle mouse button refuses to be acknowledged at all by Firefox; can't even hold it down to auto scroll or anything. I want to confirm that the button works on other programs and games with no issues. Using using ctrl/shift+click is not optimal but what I'm doing so far. I'm using the latest version, here's a list of the things I've already tried:

- Checking out all the related about:config's with "middle" as searching field.

- Made a new profile and reset Firefox numerous times

- Disabled/removed addons/extensions

- Wiped and installed Firefox completely - Tried with no addons

- Checked options

So far no luck at all, even tried some other browsers such as aurora & chrome with the same issue essentially.

I just checked my Add-ons Manager to discover that NIS 2014 and Firefox v27.0 are not compatible so Norton has been disable.

I'm not sure who's responsible for making it compatible but the issue needs to be addressed quickly. I use Firefox as my default browser and everything I do requires access to Norton for my passwords. NIS 2014 has been out for quite some time so this should have been addressed by now.

Can someone help me with this?

Thank You Michael

Some pages have 3, 4, 5 or more adobe flash advertisements running at the same time, which slows the browser down tremendously. Then, if you happen to have multiple tabs open, the browser crawls to a virtual standstill, and many times, stops responding at all.

I would like to be able to choose whether or not a page can run flash content - not have it be something that runs all the time for every page, with the only option being to kill the plugincontainer process in taskmanager - which kills even the Adobe Flash items you might want to view; such as a youtube video.

Why is there not a way to turn Adobe Flash off in the browser? I have updated both Firefox and Adobe Flash but nowhere is there an option for turning it on or off depending on your needs.

Can a control be added to the Internet Options, that you can set, to have a page ask before it is allowed to run Flash Content? Having that kind of control would GREATLY enhance the enjoyment of browsing multiple pages.

Any information on how to do this, would be appreciated.

I am trying to access the GUI administration page of my wireless controller. It is using a cert issued by the vendor that makes it, so the names do not match. I have created a permanent exception for the certificate. Whenever I try to access the site, I now get the following error every time:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 172.24.6.10:4343. SSL peer reports incorrect Message Authentication Code. (Error code: ssl_error_bad_mac_alert)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

This page worked fine before the most recent update.

Is there a setting or something I can change to allow this page to load?

I recently had a malware infection but all traces have been removed, except in firefox. The residual effect is that when I am searching google images and right click to open an image in new tab, the new tab window is blank. I have tried running with all plugins disabled in safemode without effect. I have run "search engine reset" from the app area of mozilla. This does not occur with new profiles, nor in privacy windows, only my current profile. I even clean installed mozilla and added my profile from a copy. I can not find the setting in "about:config" "newtab" either. Thus it is a profile issue only, but where is it hiding?

Thanks.

I have the setting on the general options screen for Firefox to open my home page when it starts. I would like it to do this. If I wanted it to open my previous session I would use that setting. When Firefox crashes it does this anyways. Apparently my web browser thinks that it is smarter then me. This is a problem. I've tried to have words with it but it is apparently not smart enough to make this possible. This makes the problem worse.

Even when Firefox crashes I do NOT want it to open my previous session automatically. How do I turn this feature off? If I want my previous session restored even after I crash, I am still capable of doing so through the history menu. I have Firefox 27.0.1.

I was about to post this problem on here but I found a solution, I wanted to post this so hopefully others can benefit from it.

I checked all the current solutions on the Forum but none of them worked. From reinstalling Firefox, creating a new profile, disabling and troubleshooting plug-ins, starting in SafeMode, unchecking the 'expand to current folder' option in Microsoft File Explorer... I even ran 'sfc /scannow' in an elevated command prompt and rebooted my machine. Nothing.

However, I went browsing on other forums and someone mentioned a program called CCleaner. I had used this program years ago and knew it to be reliable, so I installed it once more and cleaned Windows, my applications and registry.

It worked! Nice and easy fix that I wish I knew about 3 hours ago. Hopefully this helped others out there, you can find CCleaner here: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download

Let me know if it helped!

(EDIT: Nevermind, the problem has come back. Help?)

Pop-ups continue to appear in great number when I am using Firefox. I have Norton 360 as a protective program, and Norton spent over an hour cleaning up and protecting my computer, which is a laptop with Windows 8 operating system. If there is not way to control the pop-ups and other interference, I will have to stop using Firefox.

I want to prevent pop ups, pop unders, etc. Literally not one answer was appropriate, so I am rephrasing the question. I want firefox to simply not even acknowledge the request to open ANY new window or tab from the html code, website, server etc. I don't even want it to alert me that is hasn't acknowledged the request to open a new window or tab. I don't EVER want to see a firefox window or tab or instance that I haven't directly caused via mouse or keyboard input, and I want it to be COMPLETELY transparent. How do I do that? (I don't care if the answer is long or technical.)

This problem just happened while looking through the Mozillza support site.

while scrolling (two finger or with scroll bar) , after a few,(3-5) seconds, the display jumps to the top of the page.

I usually only have one site open at a time and this was the case during this most recent occurrence. Please couch answers in simplest terms as I am old and unaccustomed to techspeak. Thanks!

After clicking on link, Firefox opens 2 duplicate address tabs of that link. Here is the the website: http://www.hifishark.com/search?q=sony

On the right side of page, When I click on SHOW, 2 duplicate address tabs of that link open. I have been on this site before and 1 tab would normally open.

I think this started to happen when I clicked on "Restore Default Set" in the Customize Toolbar window.

This does not happen with IE or Chrome browsers.

The SHOW link from above website, seems to be the only link that this is happening. When I right click on SHOW and click on "Open Link in New Tab" 1 tab opens.

No change when in safe mode.

Does this happen for anyone else?

Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks,

http://www.southernpersuasion.com I have maintained this site for years. Recently, rather than post pictures on a photo storage provider and post them to facebook, I have posted them to facebook and then linked to them from this site (select the Pictures link). When I click on a link, I get a blank page in the frame. When I right click on the link and select Open New Tab, or Open New Window it comes up. I don't think I've messed up the html... in fact, I think I just changed the links from previous entries that were actually linked to PhotoBucket or the like. What is wrong, and how can I fix it? Thanx.
