Just last week I began receiving huge pop-up notices from familiar places - like my bank, Firefox, anywhere - and everytime - I open up a new page. My pop up blocker on Foxfire is engaged! So, that's not the problem. It's annoying and I don't understand it. A voice recording comes on and tells me some useless information.

Could I have a malware on my computer? Please advise. Thanks

I can't seem to find the settings button. I have looked for answers similar to mine, but no success. This is such a confusing web browser.! I thought maybe it would be near the star, down arrow, and home button..but it's not. So I looked under the orange Firefox thing. No luck. No matter where I look at, I do not find my solution. All I wish to do is change my homepage and a few other things. But I am having no such luck on changing my homepage. I thought maybe going into Control Panel --> Network & Internet --> Internet Options --> Change homepage (Internet Properties)..but that didn't solve my issue nether. I just don't understand why the developer did not place the settings tab/button right in clear view. The developer would have such more users if he/she changed the way the browser was set up. Please help! Thank you for your time.

I just got Firefox 23, and found there is no more Enable Javascript checkbox in the Content area of Preferences and there is no more ability to prevent changes to the functioning of the context menu and prevent the changing of the size or position of the window. I really do not understand why certain settings to control what may be done by web page code to the browser are being gutted out. Presumably it means that any smartass who can write a web page can force my browser window to be whatever size he wants it to be. That used to drive me crazy in the past, and it will do the same thing again. Is there any way to make a capability policy that could stop the resizing of the window? I just found out that I can still use the context menu if I use Shift-right-click. Why the change?

Autohiding the tab bar does not work any more. I thought the big argument for trying to put tabs on top and into the title bar was to save space? Forcing the tab bar to be visible all the time will certainly not save space, so why do it?

My bookmark menu was removed from the bookmarks toolbar. I tried to find a button that would put it back, and there are two bookmarks buttons in the customize window. Are the developers trying to make things harder, or what?

I have a sidebar that pop up on the left hand side of my screen whenever I am on the internet. It does contains a X and will close with you press that, but reopens as soon as I click on something else. It is very annoying and gets in the way of looking at pages. I've accidentally clicked on it and it takes me to weird websites. It is not listed in my toolbars or sidebars as an option to turn off. My virus detector hasn't detected any viruses. I have Firefox version 23 and Windows 7

I have a copy of the screenshot, but not sure how to post it in this question. Any suggestions will help.

Thank you, Jess

I use Groupon and recently tried to purchase one but when I hit "BUY" I got "400 Bad Request" error message. I did call Groupon, and they did the purchase for me. However, when I went on Internet Explorer which I rarely use as optonline does not work well with it, the purchase went through fine.

Why am I getting that error message with Forefox and what can I do about it?

Ever since Monday, August 21, my browser has been having many unexpected crashes. As these crashes have been happening, I have done some research and found out that the latest versions of the Firefox browser and Adobe Flash Player have been using up a lot of memory and CPU. For instance, a recently opened browser uses up over 100 MB of memory, and a single YouTube page will cause the Flash Player to take up about 50-60 MB of memory. Since then, I've been using various programs and add-ons, such as MemoryFox and Firemin, to reduce Firefox's memory usage to 6-7 MB. However, the Flash Player is still using large amounts of memory, and the browser will still crash under conditions that it would have handled properly 3 or 4 weeks ago. If you could provide any help on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it, since I need my laptop in good condition for college work. I apologize if this letter was too long, but I thank you for you time irregardless.

This has been a problem for years now. Why don't in-page anchor links work? I'm just using html with Wordpad to create my pages, not any CSS.
