I am really getting fed up with this browser, it is constantly more work than it is worth. The damn thing keeps giving me error messages in individual tabs that are silly and insulting (at the same time), telling me it is sorry but it had to close the damn tab because of some stupid problem it can not even identify. Screws up everything one is doing at the time and happens MUCH to often to be a serious browser. Also, several times a day, that damn thing closes completely dumping everything that is open, including downloads, and destroys hours if not days of work that just go out the windows, who the hell thought this one up. In addition, many serious websites will not support it's functions making me have to use IE or Chrome to do some things that are so simple it is beyond explanation why someone, anyone, who is trying to push the use of a serious browser would allow such problem to persist past the first one, let alone months of the same problems. This browser sucks and is nothing to be used seriously, what so ever.

Hi - When I set Firefox to run in Private Mode by default - it no longer displays the purple mask. How do I know then that I am actually running in Private mode? I have since switched and gone back to manually invoking the mode. Thank you.

I fear someone's hacking my network (router with internet connection). With the recommended type of security, I added MAC filtering. Since then, my browser crashes when I search with the word "hacker" or open a website with "hacker" in its URL. I know someone in my area that may know my MAC address and they are near my wifi. I need help, at least with the "hacker" in firefox (and other browsers) problem so I can look up a solution. If allowed, please help me with protecting my network. Please respond quick.

My previous versions of Firefox allowed me to open a new window and get a large, long search block in the middle of the new window. The option to enable this now seems to be missing. That is, when I open a new window now, it is completely blank. Is there any way to get the search block back? (I search a lot and use many words at times; these run out of the tiny search block in the toolbar.)

I went against the security settings I have set up on my browser and gave exception for a non-recommended site to be one my computer has permission to visit. Now I want to change that but when I went into my security options, I cannot find a delete button for the line items. When I highlight the line item it just provides an edit option which doesnt seem to do what I want.

This entire AOL layout is not as it was... not only are there no labels (those boxes in upper left should show font/color/size/text placement choices, etc.) but there's no "X" box in upper right corner of received emails so you can close it when it's been read. Other functionalities missing.

Also major problems with FB - formatting and functionalities missing, as I've mentioned earlier.

I don't like these new looks and find it hard to work with them... please help me re-store my previous settings!

Previous question: Problem with mouse pointer jumping up and down very quickly as if controlled by someone high on caffeine and jittery wanting to drive me crazy :)...I have no control over it. It will move side to side and leave the screen even...just have to be patient and try to 'catch it' when it reappears. The original question concerning this problem failed to mention that I use a Lenova ThinkPad laptop computer with a touchpad mouse. Thank you for the 2 replies I have received...would the recommendation still apply? Thank you.

I don't know if I am just getting paranoid, but now when I open a new tab, I am seeing an "advert" at the bottom of the screen.

I say advert, but for want of a better term....

See attached. Some details have been hidden for my privacy.

Is that red rectangle at the bottom "legit" or does my machine have gremlins in it?
