Firefox 78.0.2. In the address bar, when it is opened, there are addresses in the list of suggested addresses that I need to delete. Previously, I could just hover over a tab, press the delete key, and the corresponding address will be deleted. But since some time everything has changed and now nothing can be done there. I looked at the Firefox FAQ and found that you need to delete such addresses using shift+delete, but this also does not work. I've been trying to do this all day, but I can't do it. How do I do this? Why do such simple things cause such difficulties now? It used to be a very convenient browser.

On start up, a tab opens to an advertising tab of Simple spider solitaire advertising this game that I already have as a download to my pc for a very long time. This is very annoying since I already have many tabs open to work in to reminding me of my project. This has been going on for over 2 weeks now. Why am I having a game advertising itself and it is the tab that I see immediately. I would like that adverting to stop. I love having the tabs I need available on start up but not ads.

This is the tab that opens to this address automatically: https://pages.pubfinity.com/randomsaladgames/spider/welcome.

Is there an easy solution? I am not too savy with pc stuff. Or is this an issue you need to know about? Thank you for your time, Unhappycamper

When I'm minimized or maximized the browser, there's these white bars that appear around the browser. If I restart the browser, the bars will be gone for awhile and it will happen again. See attached image for a clearer idea of what I'm saying.

Also, if I minimize the browser completely, I can never open it again until I close and restart the browser. Not sure what is happening.

A lot of addons are not compatible with latest versiosn of Firefox! It has become unbearable!

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.

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.

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...
