Ok, random tabs open in Firefox often enough to really get annoying. I don't want to switch back to IE (ew), but I will if I can't fix this. Normally, it's a Google ad that opens, but today, a site for adult products opened. I have a 13 yr. old daughter who does NOT need to see this.

Here's what I've done to try to correct this problem so far...

-I've un-installed and re-installed Firefox at leas 4 times -I've run Malware Bytes Anti-Malware, Ad-Ware, AVG scans and Super Anti Sypware...multiple times -I've deleted and replaced the dll file WS2_2.dll with a new one -I've re-configured add-ons according to another support site.

Anyone got any better ideas? I really don't want to go back to IE! Please help!!

Every time I open a new tab it defaults to Yahoo search engine page. I hate this. I want a BLANK page as in earlier versions of firefox, or I want ability to customize tab (set website of my choice). How can I remove Yahoo from being the default page when I open a new TAB, and set my default tab website of choice.

Does yahoo own Firefox? If so I will install another browser all together.

I have visited this website thousands of times before using Mozilla Firefox, but now when I try and load the website, all I get is "Content Encoding Error. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression." I have talked to my friends over Instant Messaging and none of them are receiving this problem.

Firefox automatically starts itself on start-up every time. I don't want it to. If I want it on, I'll click on it. I don't go on the internet every single time I start up my computer and don't like having to WAIT for it to start up so I can quit it. I don't know why it does this - never did before - and it is EXTREMELY annoying! HELP! I'm on a Macintosh operating with Tiger OS.
