When I download something, it downloads but I have to click on it to get it to open and install on my computer. I did a new install of windows and it started doing this when I installed Firefox. I used to automatically start the install.

When I download a program, example Java, it will not open to the run or save box. I have to click on the link in the download box of Firefox. I had to do a new install and when I did, Firefox started doing this. It was fine before I had to do the Windows install.

My windows XP is useful for browsing and printing information. I was using Mozilla/firefox as the browser. However, with Google as the main page now without the bookmarks, and the save/save as, print icons/terms, it is awkward to print what I want. I suppose I could cut, copy and paste the article onto Microsoft word and then save and print it, but that is tedious and unnecessary.

I initially thought that Google toolbar or Norton toolbar would be helpful but they are not. I recalled that about 5-10 years ago I used Netscape and thought perhaps Netscape would have a browser with the useful features. Netscape unfortunately does not and moreover Netscape wanted me to sign up for $24.95 a month for something I do not need. I have been trying to get out of signing up for Netscape after I found out that Netscape wanted to charge me. I have to get out of Netscape first.

I do not understand why firefox doesn't display the 'keywords' property of a bookmark when I create a new bookmark.

(I have had mixed luck updating the install script for openbooks on newer firefox versions, but it would be nice to not have to do this..)

I was having trouble with a question on a college discussion board. Every time I clicked on it, the reply was set option failed. I called support through the college. They told me how to clear all history on Firefox.Well I did that and nothing was cleared I have tried several times and the history will not clear at all. The technician stated that it sounded like java script was acting crazy. Could this be true? I have had no other problems. Is there a phone number that you can be reached at?

I have bookmarked several sites which require a password. Firefox remembers the password ok. When I click on the bookmark, a page comes up with the password request, already filled in, and I have to click again to open the page I'm after.

Can I set it so that the page opens automatically, without having to click on the 'submit' button?

Firefox takes ages to open with the start page and when it does it continually freezes on me. I type and it stops so I continue typing and eventually it catches up with me! I try to open a bookmark and again it takes ages or I get a message on the top bar saying 'NOT RESPONDING' . My mouse does not move around the page smoothly and sometimes the pages jumpes to a different area.

Whenever I open Firefox it welcomes me and up till a week ago was also reinstalling all addons.

I have tried removing addons and updating them too but they return to original settings when it restarts.

This is on my work computer which means I need to get an administrator to instal anything, I am not given any permissions for this.
