this problem is not duplicated when viewing same page in Internet Explorer8.0.6xxx.

http://www.weather.com/weather/videos/news-41/top-stories-169/cool-problem-snow-still-piled-up-21500

This was most recent website visited and when it automatically redirected to the next video in line, it froze the mouse. I tried to launch the task manager at which point it locked out the keyboard.

(This PC is a Dell Precision T3500 w/ 6G of RAM running WinXP Pro x64, there is no rationale for this kind of incompetence.)

This happens WAY TOO OFTEN, like more than 50% of visits to video oriented sites like youtube etc

why won't firefox open a hot link in a new tab? I have selected the setting that is supposed to do this, but Firefox insists upon opening a new window, every time! It's annoying as hell.

OK...ummmm, I'm running Mac OS10.4.11 (not so sure about the last two digits, but you get the idea). I installed the latest Firefox update maybe a week ago... my monitor crapped out yesterday, so I replaced it with a bigger one that I had lying around. I have used this monitor with this machine before, and had no problems with getting Firefox to open links that I clicked on in a new tab. As per your Help site, I checked the monitor's 'size' and it was as always. I even reduced the 'size' of the monitor, but no joy.

What gives, oh Mighty One?

All of a sudden there is a section on the left side of my Firefox online screen that has:

           Search:  [?]  [View ]

+ Yesterday + Last 7 days

I don't know how it got there, I've tried disabling plug-ins, personalizing tool bar, etc., and can't get rid of it. If I place my cursor on the line that separates this section from the regular Firefox screen, an arrow appears as if I could drag the right part of the screen to the left and "cover up" this search section, but the drag won't work.

Very infrequently it will allow the page to open but 90% of the time I get the error message. It also happens if I click on a link to a yahoo news story from another web site. I had tried Firefox 4, but it was giving me all kinds of errors so I reverted back to 3.6

I have used "View>Toolbars>Customize" to put a "New Tab" icon on the navigation toolbar. This has worked for weeks and weeks, putting on a new tab when I have clicked on it. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, it no longer works and neither does the '+' at the right of a tab.

Could someone tell me how to get the "New Tab" feature working again, please

I'm not sure if that is the proper way to describe it. When a web page opens, random words are underlined (such as laptop on this Ask A New Question page.)

Sometimes if it is a word like "claims," the link goes to an insurance company. I think this should be an option to turn this off because I think it is annoying. I guess it might be helpful if I was doing research but I'm not.

Firefox version 3.6.18 and Yahoo mail classic . All buttons within the browser to check mail/inbox do nothing (shows blue bra loading at top of window but status bar indicates done). Most will if I right click and select open in new tab/window.

Windows 7 starter with java and flash updated. Works with IE8.

I removed and updated to latest version 6.0 and still had same problem. I hate the new ad driven interface with the latest Yahoo mail and will stay classic as long as I can.

I know they are phasing out Yahoo Classic mail but in the meantime is this Yahoo problem?

Basically, I just want to know what happens if I choose not to upgrade to the most current version? I keep getting pop ups to upgrade my 3.6 but it always takes me to the download for 6.0! I DO NOT want 6.0-it sucks! My computer is not even a year old but Firefox 6.0 caused many issues. Plug ins-all updated/current, but 6.0 would not allow some of my programs run properly. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled 3.6. This version seems to be the only one that does not cause problems! If you need any further information, please eel free to contact me @: removed
