I have just updated to Firefox 17; I have used it back from version 3, and I feel it's time to say goodbye to Mozilla Firefox!

I have used a lot of other programs, and I don't think there is any other program that updates as frequently as Firefox - every couple of months there is a new version!

It's not bad thing itself, but very, very bad thing is that, each time I update Firefox, one third of my plugins and addons are not compatible with new version! That completely ruins my joy of surfing the internet; since updating from Firefox 14 to current Firefox 17, I have lost at least five addons that were very important for me; the last one, now, is Tab Mix Plus, it's not compatible with Firefox 17, and my Firefox now looks completely different from what I'm used to, I cannot use it!

This has become unbearable any longer: I cannot cope with constant updates of program and addons, and finding replacements for addons that became incompatible! I want to browse internet, and not always to maintain something within Firefox!

You offered me some half of dozen years of excellent experience of browsing the web, but you've become too user enemy for my liking; , so bye, bye, Firefox!

I installed ShopAtHome toolbar, now Yahoo has hijacked my new tab. How do I fix this to the last visited tabs?

Multiple forums have addressed the fact that Yahoo is hijacking new tabs. I installed the ShopAtHome toolbar - which I love - but then I get Yahoo installed (mysteriously and uninvited).

I would like the new tab to reset to its default of: either the panels of previous sites, or the blank page. The prior issues relating to netassistant do not work.

Any help would be appreciated.

The add-on extension "NewTabURL" (by "sogame") provided the option I want and used for a number of years. But it stopped working when Firefox was updated to version 16.0. When I click for a new tab, all I get is a completely blank tab. How can I automatically have the new tab always be a copy of the current active tab?

Can the extension "NewTabURL" be revised to work in version 16 and/or version 17? If not, how else can I get the new tab functionality that I desire? I can't seem to find any other extension that provides that functionality.

I downloaded the update for Firefox 17.0 and installed it with no problems. After completion, I discovered that I could not open additional tabs as with previous versions of Firefox. I tried various methods, including the File pulldown menu, clicking on the tab stop next to an already open website, and using Ctrl+T. Nothing worked. I can open additional windows, but find it much more convenient to use tab stops, and am currently unable to do so using the latest version of Firefox.

It used to be that when I opened a new tab in Firefox (16?), the cursor would go to the URL bar and I could type in any URL i wanted. Now, it disappears and I have to position the cursor in the URL field manually. What happened? I really need the cursor to jump right to the URL field when I open up a new tab.

when addons are updated, FF restarts and the websites of the updated addons open in tabs to let u know those addons were updated and to be able to check their website fa further info (changelog, etc)...

however firefox is now opening addon sites (first only from download helper and now including tab mix plus), even tho those addons werent updated...

i have a screenshot i can send if its possible...

this only happens when firefox first opens, as long as its open, any other instances of firefox open correctly with just a blank tab and no other website tabs...

i downgraded to FF v16 bc i cant get tab mix plus in 17 and i hate how firefox handles tabs, so i will not upgrade until tab mix plus works with v 17...as an aside...i always use the previous version of FF until tab mix plus works with whatever th current version is...

no matter how i configure the tabs setting in firefox (open links and new windows in a new tab) , all links, URLs and bookmarks open in the same tab, instead of as separate tabs, unless i first open a new tab and then select/enter the link, URL or bookmark.

for this reason, i ALWAYS use Tab Mix Plus extension...this has mastered the use of tabbed browsing and is very easy to set up and keep up...i dont have to open blank tabs first and TMP has other options too...

i just downgraded from FF 17 to FF 16 bc Tab Mix Plus doesnt work with FF 17 and i wont have my browsing hindered by FF inability to make their tabs work...

btw, i always revert to a previous version of FF until Tab Mix Plus is updated to work with the current FF upgrade...

My close tab icon on Firefox appears too large, and is stretched and blurry. My laptop has a screen resolution of 1366x768, but it's not an issue with the resolution because other laptops of the same resolution have no issue. All the other icons are fine, including the close tab option when you go into 'about:config' and change 'browser.tab.closeButton' to 3. Can anybody help?
