I know how to re-enable it manually, which I have to do every single time I start FF. How can I change the default to "on"?

Just today Firefox has began crashes every time I log into facebook. Unlike other users, it is not creating or sending crash reports when it does this. I can access the main screen and log in but when the first logged in page tries to load it crashes. No other sites seem to be affected. I have tried clearing cookies, and nothing seems to have updated in the last 24 hours (other than maybe firefox as I can't find an update date for it).

Thanks for any help!

I just updated Firefox with Windows 7 X64 update number kb2670838 and now I just get sent to the Mozilla error report screen unless I go into safe mode. I have disabled all my addons and the themes. The only way it works (and I could post this) was to use safe mode. I don't know the difference between safe mode and normal mode either. I have updated this after noticing somethings were enabled and my theme was enabled but I have since disabled them. I am also using java 7 update 15 which seems to work.

How can I unblock a website blocked by Firefox?

When I try to click on a link to www.bookbub.com/ in Google Reader and feedly, I get the following message: "Firefox prevented this site from opening 1 popup window", wit… (read more)

When I try to click on a link to www.bookbub.com/ in Google Reader and feedly, I get the following message: "Firefox prevented this site from opening 1 popup window", with an option box to either:

option 1 - "Block popups from google.com" (or feedly.com) - I want the opposite of this!

option 2 - "Edit popup blocker options"

option 3 - "Show www.bookbub.com/deals"

If I click on option 3 ("Show www.bookbub.com/deals"), this website is still being blocked.

If I choose option 2 (allow popups from google and feedly), this website is still being blocked.

So, in Firefox Options settings, the popup blocker box is now unticked - popups are unblocked - but this website is still being blocked.

This is the only site which is blocked. All links to other websites open correctly from Google Reader and/or Google Search. To bypass this unwanted block and access the website, I have to type the url in the address bar.

I would much prefer to simply open it as I do with all other websites from Google reader or feedly, with a simple click on a link.

Suggestions welcome, thank you.

Edited to add:

Same problem when clicking on a link to this website from Google Search (website blocked by Firefox), yet no such problem when clicking the link within *this* post... ?!

No problem whatsoever opening the website from any link in Chrome.

Hi. I'd like to know how to remove the redirection to the navigation bar when I open up a new tab. Everytime I open up a new tab I've set it so I come to my homepage, google. But instead of directing me to the search bar in the center of the site, as it usually does when you type in the address and hit enter, it redirects me to the navigation bar, removes everything there and puts out the text "Go to a website". I don't want that, I want so it puts me in the search bar like if I'd have typed in the address in the navigation bar. Thanks in advance.

The context-sensitive Firefox menu that appears when I right click on a link appears exactly over the context-sensitive application menus that come up in Yahoo, Box, and other sites, so the Firefox menu blocks me from seeing or clicking on the Yahoo or Box menu options. Is there a way to prevent the Firefox menu from appearing on top when another menu is active? or a way to disable the Firefox menu when on certain web sites? Even having the Firefox menu appear in a different location (to the left, for example, instead of to the right), would enable me to see and access the website's application menu.

For the last few days my Firefox does not display the downloads window. I have tried to follow the suggestion set out in Firefox Help ie Tools --> Options --> General

But my General Tab doesn't show under Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file". Under Downloads, the only option shows "save files to Downloads" and "Always ask me where to save files".

Any suggestions on how I can get to --> Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file".

Thank you in anticipation
