I have lost years of bookmarks upon upgrading from 3.5 to 3.6. None of the suggested solutions on forum have helped and in fact I don't see any responses from Mozilla just other users. I've reinstalled 3.5 as some other users said that reinstated their bookmarks but it did no good with mine. What's up Mozilla? Are you going to leave us all hanging out to dry without a fix to your really bad mistake. Help your users or you are going to lose many.

Any links that open as new windows or pop-ups will not work in Firefox, even when I disable pop-up blocker. For example in Gmail I can click a person's e-mail as a hyperlink and it is supposed to open a new e-mail message to that address in a separate window. However, when I try it in Firefox, nothing happens, the window won't open. No link that operates this way will work. I have tried disabling pop-up blocker but the problem still happens.

I am having to run v3.5.10 because even now with latest 3.6 that version - every 30 seconds or so I hear a process open and then close. Can't track it down even in task manager - too brief but it's insistent! So stuck having to use 3.5

I have to use V3.5.10 despite wanting to run 3.6 (just updated to 3.6.6 too). However when I run 3.6 I hear thru my sounds set up a process open briefly and then close every 30 seconds or so - it's very regular and insistent and I'd like to know what it is and why. It's too brief to spot in Task manager processes listing. This did happen once under 3.5 I seem to recall but was cured when it upgraded.

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

Everytime I use firefox, this page opens in a new tab at least once every five minutes. It's super annoying and is getting in the way of everything I do. I find myself using my lap top instead of dealing with it. What can I do to stop this from popping up? Here's the page it pulls up:

When I open "Preferences" dialog and try to edit any options which are represented with checkboxes or radio buttons when I point mouse at them the text becomes the same color as the background so you can't read it. First I thought it had something to do with my gtk theme settings but other gtk programs show their dialogs fine, so it must be a firefox issue.
