I have read a lot of threads, but I have not found that any help. I just reformatted my hard drive and installed FF4 fresh. . I open firefox to my homepage. No tabs opened at this point. If I right click on on the page to open a new link by opening a new tab, it stays on the current page and opens a new tab in the background. My problem is if I am on a page and I open a new tab by selecting a BOOKMARK, it switches to the new tab immediately. I want to stay on the current tab and have the bookmark tab open in a background tab. Any help? Thanks.

P.S. I have tried checking and unchecking "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately", I have tried safe mode, I have tried disabling all of the add-on's....nothing seems to work.

Need to undo "Prevent Site from Creating Anymore Dialogs" checkbox on gmail.

When using my eprint function (e-mailing attachments to my printer through gmail), I have to send the attachment without subject or text in body to prevent it printing extra pages. Gmail automatically asks me "Send message without text in body?" and "Send message without a subject?" which was getting annoying. SO, I clicked the checkbox marked "Prevent this site from creating any more dialogs," hoping that would stop the pop-ups.

Now, the pop-ups don't appear, but gmail simply doesn't send the message, so I get stuck unless I enter a subject and body text (which is a pain and wastes paper by printing an extra page). I can't figure out how to 'undo' what I did in either Firefox or Gmail. I'm using version 4.0.1.

Help???

At times I run across an image that I want to "save" but it has a link attached to it, usually a link to the site's home page.

When the link is there I am not given an option to save the image, just options relating to the link.

How can I save such an image?

I noticed that my search bar was changed to Yahoo instead of Google, and reset it. Also had entered a couple of sho.rt/urls and came upon a redirect to search.yahoo.com.

A few days ago I installed a freeware that loaded a program into my Windows XP startup to change my MSIE home page or search preferences to Yahoo from Live, and IE alerted me and I blocked the change. Then to get rid of the bootup notice that a program has attempted to change things and was blocked, I ran Spybot Search & Destroy and removed the offender from the start sequence.

There are Microsoft and third-party ways to lock-down MSIE, and I am looking for a way to do this in Firefox.4.

Addendum: DOWNLOADED IOBit SMART DEFRAG 2 and it loaded that starter to change MSIE settings, and gave Firefox two new toolbars: IOBit Toolbar 4.4 and Widgi Toolbae Platform 4.4. They will be disabled as soon as I send this. And I will toss IOBit Smart Defrag too. I discovered all of this when I pasted troubleshoot info below.
