I had 3.5 for online cci.edu it work just fine. I downloaded 3.6 and now I can't attend my classes. Above the web page it says: Firefox Security has redirected your page.

I just updated to Firefox 3.6.8

In 3.6.4, when I opened a new tab by clicking on a link, the tab would open to the far right of the tab bar. Now it opens a new tab directly to the tab I currently have open.

Is there an option where I can change this back to when it opened the new tab to the far right?

If, by accident, I click on the bottom part of Firefox (above Windows´ taskbar) the browser sort of minimizes and I can´t reopen it, I have to cancel everything I´m doing. As I usually work with many tabs, a pop-up asks me if I want Firefox to save my tabs for next start, and I click on "Yes", but then, when I open it, I can´t restore them at all, even if I go to History-> Recently Closed tabs...

How can I solve this???

Please, I´d really appreciate it if you could help me, because this is so annoying, and makes me waste a lot of time!

All the details can be found there, https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/733503#threadId734327 In response to Morbos, disabling the theme and using the default doesn't help. Also, with the zoom, I really would like firefox itself to be bigger, like it normally is. I really don't know why this is the only program that this happens to :/
