Need to PREVENT automatic re-painting of non-focus pages as content on them changes.

I use multiple tabs in 1 or 2 windows, and SOME of the pages have continuously updated information in some areas. Apparently Firefox is set to SWITCH FOCUS from whatever I am looking at to whichever page/tab has a fresh update. This causes no end of grief, as I may be in the middle of reading a sentence, or scrolling to find a particular item in a page, or responding in a text field, and all of a sudden my display bounces to an page that is unrelated to what I am doing. Unacceptable. I note, in addition, that this is a problem EVEN IF I ONLY HAVE ONE PAGE/TAB/WINDOW open, in that it can bounce me from where I am looking to where I haven't asked to look, and this can happen EVEN WHEN I AM HOLDING DOWN THE LMB WHILE CONTROLLING SCROLLING TO FIND SOMETHING ON THE CURRENT PAGE.

None of these behaviors make sense, and all interrupt browsing, rendering it annoying to completely ineffective. The correct way to handle continuous updating of browser information is to ONLY shift to a new location when the user is NOT actively controlling the current activity on the current display, either by using navigation commands such as scrolling, or by active input to the screen.

Does Firefox currently have a way for me to STOP the automatic re-display of updating pages?

I am using v12.0. (I note that I do NOT recall this being a huge problem until I upgraded from a much-earlier version.)

I have had to revert to Firefox 12 because if I use Firefox 17 I cannot sign into eBay. Page says "not responding" I have always had all the new updates up to version 17, but obviously, if I can't sign into eBay there is no point in having version 17.

I am trying to to figure how to select multiple items (email addresses) using firefox on a mac. I use a web based manage my business. I am trying to send emails to multiple people.

I have tried clicking on the first email and hold the command key while selecting the others. The selection just jumps.

I tried holding the shift key and and it selects everything between the 1st and 2nd email address I want to use.

I also tried the control key which just brings up a menu.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently changed to a wide screen monitor, hoping to use it to view multiple windows at one time. Now, however, the windows are just really wide. I tried to change the window size, but then I just ended up having to use a horizontal scroll bar-- which is really inconvenient for me. So, can I change the window settings so they just don't fill my whole screen? I'm not super computer savvy. Thanks for helping!

Win7 Pinning Private Browsing Command Line Icon to taskbar in addition to the regular one?

I have a habit of keeping all my often used apps on the taskbar and keeping the desktop clean save a few folders contained overly organized shortcuts/shortcuts to hard drives for all downloads,rar extractions, general workspace and pretty pictures and this minor thing is bugging the crap out of me.

I basically want to pin the command line shortcut with its different icon to the taskbar in addition to the normal one because I use firefox so frequently I don't want to right click,go through the tools or have it on the desktop eating away at my soul! Single click from taskbar a must :)

I know its possible somehow but I don't have the first clue on what to do. If anyone else has a similar compulsion and has figured it out pretty please hold my hand through this.

The title says it all

I'm on a chatsite and as I go to copy paste instead of keeping the 'logs' in this nice line by line base, where each time a person speaks they have their own line, it meshs it together in a giant paragraph. At first i thought this was MS Word, then i tried just copy pasting from FireFox to fireFox and it still didn't work. Chrome, IE, Opera, and safari can all copy paste the lines and keep them in lines on this particular website.

I'm in a bind here because it's my job to save 'logs' here and I cannot do that well if i have to go through and start each line just so it's easy to read.
