I removed Bing from my computer as I did not like it much. Since Google has now become such a useless piece of junk I decided to re-install Bing but each time I try I get the following message. Quiote: Firefox could not install the search plugin from "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/54407/bing-20090601.xml?src=category" because an engine with the same name already exists. This engine does no show up anywhere on my computer except for an XML file in Firefox/searchengines. I have deleted them but it makes no difference. The files do not show in Tools\addons nor in about:config. Please don't tell me that Firefox is become as useless as Google...............I don't want to have to use IE.

I recently changed to a new computer and I have been having problems with Firefox that I haven't experienced before. Whenever I use Firefox I find myself having to force refresh (Ctrl+F5) a site almost every time. I do this when I see the site that I am at looking weird (like the picture below) like it is ignoring the styles. Can anyone help me fix this?

I have tired running Firefox in safe mode, Chrome renders just find all of the time, and I have cleared the cache and everything multiple times

In FF 17.0.1 I have several bugs to mention. I am only able to open bookmarks by right clicking them and selecting Open In New Tab from the drop down menu. I am unable to open a new tab by clicking on the new tab button or by clicking open new tab from the FF drop down menu at top of browser. Also, none button work in FF, such as Home, Back, Forward, or refresh. This is so aggravating!!

We have two computers in the home, one faster and better than the other. The slower one will receive web videos at full 1080, but the faster one will receive at only 360. I've done a test on one particular website video here to ensure a proper apples for apples comparison. Can you tell me why this is, and how to get the 1080 result on the better computer. Many thanks

For as long as I can remember the mousebutton 3 on my Logitech MX518 has had the following function: 1) When pressing on a non-link item, nothing happens 2) When pressing on a link; that link opens in a new tab.

Sometime in the last 6 months new behaviour was introduced as follows: 1) When pressing on a non-link item, the "back" command is executed. 2) When pressing on a link; that link opens in a new tab.

The annoying part here is that if I miss-click a link, the current tab loads the last visited page which is sort of the opposite effect I want. I want to open a link in a new tab and still stay on the current page I'm reading.

So my questions: 1) Is this a feature of Firefox (or perhaps website specific behaviour?) and if so, when was it introduced? 2) Can I disable this feature, e.g. in about:config?

Until several weeks ago GMAIL worked fine in HTML. Then, after a Firefox version change it worked only in the low res version. This has happened before after a version change but remedied itself after the next version change. This time it is still not working in HTML even after several version changes!!

What can be the reason(s) for that?
