When I use the Firefox browser to surf the web, on nearly every web page I visit an invasive advertising platform creates anchor links on the web pages (anchor keywords with two hyperlinks under the anchor word) which when clicked takes the viewer to an advertisement. Most of the links seem to be part of an advertising platform owned by "Text Enhance," which I have contacted to complain about. They sort of played dumb. I said I thought it was the result of some malware from which they were the sole beneficiary and they assured me they didn't instigate it. I went to the Warrior Forum and some members suggested it sounded like it came from one of your extensions or plugins. My security and technology consultant scrubbed my computer and they deleted some of your extensions and plugins and the problem went away. But two weeks later, it's back and it's pervasive. Even words in my online banking accounts are showing these text links.

Aside from security concerns, my biggest fear is that they are stealing traffic from the websites I publish--websites where I'm trying to sell either my own or affiliate products. And that upsets me greatly.

I'm sure I'm not the only web user experiencing this problem. If other web publishers are also getting their traffic stolen and directed to a competing site, you can bet that there will be a class action lawsuit on the horizon for Mozilla. So I suggest you get to the bottom of this situation and rectify it, because a lawsuit will be the inevitable result.

I don't mean to alarm you because I use Firefox as my primary browser. However, I checked IE and Chrome and Chrome is exhibiting the same situation. So I'm not really sure how this is happening, and that's why I'm contacting you about it.

Please let me know if you know how to de-activate this invasive pest.

When I am in Fullscreen mode, the toolbar at the top disappears and only appears when you mouse-over the top of the screen.

Is there a setting somewhere so that when I go to fullscreen mode, I can choose to keep the address bar, tab bar and the bookmarks bar visible (not auto hide)?

Until the last week, I have been successfully using http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0 to disable Google's insistence on forcing users' searches to use the infuriating auto-complete and Instant Search functions (the option to disable the former was removed by Google from Preferences while the latter doesn't retain the disabling in Preferences). However, Google now seems to have beaten my first choice workaround. Before I switch to one last possible workaround, I wondered if Firefox users knew of any others? Failures so far are: *http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0 *www.google.co.uk/firefox *https://encrypted.google.com/

Firefox 7.0.1 on Win7 pro 64

Hi FF team & community,

sometimes FF 6/7 shows a VERY strange behaviour: while doing "normal" things on websites (click links, edit text boxes, scrolling, changing tabs) FF starts to ignore my single clicks. The only way to work is using double click instead of single click (i.e. for links, enter a textbos, changing tab, even for open a Firefox menu) for ALL actions!!!!!

A minute ago, the last example was on

 https://plus.google.com/circles/find 

while moving a contact to a "circle" - FF changes to only accepting double clicks. No error, no message.

I found this buggy behaviour on many different websites - simples sites and sites with complex functionality, too - in the last weeks since FF6+7 are current versions.

With my other two questions I'm getting the idea, that current FF releases contain more bugs than releases between FF1 to FF3.

Over the last week or so, whenever a video box appears on a site, Adobe Flash Player has a Settings popup appear. Why is this suddenly happening? It was never a problem before.

I don't want information stored anywhere, so I click "Deny," but the message keeps popping up.

I upgraded to Flash Player 11 but it hasn't made a difference.

I went to the Website Storage Settings panel and chose "None" and "Never Ask Again" but it makes no difference. The settings popup still appears, and when I return to the panel it has unchecked the "Never Ask Again" box.

This problem is driving me insane. I've searched the web but can find no answers. If there is a quick fix, I would be extremely grateful.

Ever since I installed Avg free 2012 I have been forced to put up with Avg isearch appearing on every single page which I did not have previously I absolutely hate when something is imposed on me and I think it it totally unfair that I dont have the final say on whether I want it or not. I would appreciate it very much if your team could provide a solution to this problem as I cannot find one myself. I have tried to remove this several ways none of which worked. I have disabled the addon, uninstalled Avg free 2012, went through the Avg settings and disabled linkscanner and all of its settings and I am still stuck with it. I would have asked Avg to help but you can only get help from avg if you have a paid version of Avg and besides Avg is probably benefiting in some way. I typed youtube and the window address bar returned: http://isearch.avg.com/search?cid=%7Bab7f8f1d-568b-443e-90b9-c7517ba5f649%7D&mid=26d73d20be7247d1b7acd16f6b948aa4-56940bc882bc5afd7a8a09149449efc60dfa3b03&ds=AVG&lang=en&v=8.0.0.34&pr=fr&d=2011-09-01%2010%3A57%3A31&sap=dsp&q=youtube

We're publishing Firefox through Citrix which works correctly. We want to set a few settings that are locked and some that are set as initial preferences. When creating the mozilla.cfg with minimal settings that are locked, everything works correctly. When using additional settings that are not locked we get the "Failed to read the configuration file" error. We've tried to remove some of the settings to make is as basic as possible and still get the message.

There apppeared a message "It can't continue because couldn't find the source of the file on the disc." What can I do to avoid starting from the beginning? If there's a solution, Does it work with download managers too?
