Just a couple days ago all of a sudden the "Open a new tab" button wasn't working and even going into "file" and then "open new tab" it doesn't open a new tab. I have to go into my bookmarks and right click "open in new tab" for any new tab to open. I've checked my settings and nothing is there about it. Is there anything that I can do to fix it?

After installing Firefox 4 I got the following message when on the weatherunderground page: "Firefox prevented this page from automatically reloading". Clicking on the allow button will get rid of the message but it comes right back. I uninstalled Firefox 4 and downloaded Firefox 3.6.16 but I still get the same message. How do I get the page to automatically reload?

The FF browser will frequently (95%) not completely shut down. I can see it on the Task Manager, yet without CPU activity, after closing FF.

So, I must use the TM to "End Process", before it will re-start.
When this is happening, I can see that FF has no CPU activity, until I click on the FF shortcut. When trying to start FF, there is a brief spurt of activity, then none. The memory usage will change with the activity, then stop.
I have no idea what to do to avoid this annoying problem.
How do I shut down FF completely, every time.

I got a message from "Firefox Security" that my computer was full of viruses asking if I wanted them to correct the problem. The address was not Firefox though. I figured it was a fake. Does anyone know?

It might have said "Mozilla Security" but the address line wasn't Mozilla either. I think it might be a new virus, so I didn't click on it. Today is the first time I s… (read more)

I have faithfully updated Firefox on my Windows XP system and now use Firefox/3.6.16. I also run Photoshop Elements 6.0, which requires quite a bit of memory. It is currently getting slowed down because plugin-container.exe is consuming anywhere from 25% to 50% of my memory. If I use Task Mgr to shut down this task, things are much better. Is there a downloadable version of Firefox that does not include plugin-container.exe, and if so, can I replace my current version with that one?

The topic tabs at the top of the page ("News", "Sport", "Life and Style" etc) are larger than they should be and make more than one row when there should be just one. Below that the whole page is squished to the far right, so most of the page is blank except for a thin colum where article headings, text and pictures truncated and unreadable. No problems with other websites, no problems with The Guardian website if I use Internet Explorer. Any ideas? Thanks. I am not sure what other information would be helpful. :(

How do I get all the control buttons in one place in 3.6.16, like they used to be in previous versions? Having the refresh and stop buttons between address and search windows, and the home button to the far right is awful.

In 3.6.16, the buttons are all over the place. In previous versions, the forward, back, refresh, stop and home buttons were all together. In this version, the refresh and stop buttons are between the address and search windows, and the home button to the far right.

I would love to have them all together as they used to be - much more user friendly that way. I have tried installing alternate themes, but the coding of this version over-rides the themes.

I cannot seem to open new tabs when using firefox. I have tried clicking on the new tab button, right clicking and selecting new tab and have tried File, new tab and none of them will produce a new tab. However if I click on a website link in the current tab it will open a new tab. It just seems to be when I want to manually open a tab.

This problem only started recently. Opening another web page (URL) from my homepage always opens in the same tab and the "go back one page" button is gray and does not work. If I open a series of web pages in the same tab the green "back" button is green. Clicking on the "recent pages" down arrow will allow me to go back, but only to the page after the home page. In other words, after browsing, I can get back to the opening page (my home page) only by clicking on the house icon but not by using the "recent pages" function. Is there an option that changed after the last update?

I like a minimalist toolbar with only two rows of small icons. after the last row with the Google toolbar, there's about an inch of blank space before the browser tabs. I'd prefer to have more space for the webpages.

I tried dragging and dropping and moving things around and it doesn't work. I feel that FF has a minimum height constraint and won't let me make the toolbar thinner. Is this true?

Is there a way on this forum to find my previous questions and problem reports? Since posting a question earlier today, I've found MOST of the answer and would therefore like to append what I found to the question, without waiting for someone else to answer it. I don't remember the title I gave the earlier question, or I'd use that title in searching for it.

The troubleshooting information below is more relevant to a previous problem than this question.
