We had to download Firefox once we had installed Windows 8. Although we now have a Firefox tile on the new Windows desktop, to enable access to Firefox, whenever we click on it to go to Firefox, we get the option to select Firefox as our default browser. Whether we say Yes or No, the screen then locks up and we have to use Control, Alt and Delete to close it.

I moved user profile folders to my retail copy of Win8. My startups (I start TBird when the system starts) imported - and amazingly Thunderbird started up from the startups even though I hadn't installed it.

Then I installed Firefox, and it immediately booted up and asked if I wanted to restore my previous session! There was no previous session in the Retail - but it was the session from my copy of the Release Preview.

My questions are

"Is this a feature of Mozilla products, or a happy byproduct of storing program info/settings/etc in the AppData folders?"

"Will I lose my info if I remove the old hard drive with the Release Preview - or is everything stored in the AppData folders?"

The Tab on my browser is double sized under Windows 8. I have already searched the forums for a solution and none worked.

Already tried: 1. Safe mode 2. Create new Profile 3. Reinstalled with NO extensions 4. Cleaned out everything entry in appdata/programdata/registry

After everything double sized tab persists.

So I am led to believe that this is some new setting for Firefox where it detects an unknown 'Tablet' mode and sets the default theme as having double sized tabs. -- And just FYI -- I am NOT using a touchscreen. So whatever it is detecting, it is faulty. If you are going to put this in as an option, please add an option to DISABLE it.

When I change to another theme, such as Mx3, it does fix the double sized.

When I check for update in Firefox 18.0.2 it is showing that Firefox is Up to date. However, the latest version is 19.0. After a little googling I found an addon Httpfox which shown me the URL firefox is requesting to check the updates. It is

https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/Firefox/18.0.2/20130201065344/WINNT_x86-msvc/en-US/release/Windows_NT%206.2.0.0%20(x86)/default/default/update.xml?force=1

This is giving a XML with empty update tags

However, if I change Windows version from 6.2.0.0 to 6.1.0.0 like this,

https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/Firefox/18.0.2/20130201065344/WINNT_x86-msvc/en-US/release/Windows_NT%206.1.0.0%20(x86)/default/default/update.xml?force=1

it is showing some update related xml.

Is the manual download and install is the only solution I've left with now?

Firefox works okay but I notice it slow down an lag. When I go on Pandora an play music it'll work fine but once I start opening other tabs it will start lagging the music. This doesn't happen on Internet Explorer. If I play a video YouTube in HD I sometimes have to let it load all the way up or it'll start lagging. I have none of these issues on Internet Explorer. What can I do to fix this?

Hi, I have just brought a new laptop running windows 8 and have installed Firefox. My old laptop was running XP and I didn't have a problem running Firefox on it. I am trying to install Kindle for PC on my new laptop but I keep getting the message "this link needs to be opened with an application". I've never seen this message before on any web browser that I have used. I have "googled" the question and some suggestions are: > reloading Firefox-no point I've just loaded it > downloading through Internet Explorer-which I don't want to do as I want Firefox my browser of choice > Some talk of changing profiles-which I haven't a clue about.

Any help in plain and simple English and assuming I have no prior knowledge (I'm a car driver rather than a mechanic) will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

The following is what is listed in the navigation bar when I get the error message.

http://iphantom.com/wisd/restricted.html?fn=Default&FP=l&ip=10.201.5157&ibip=66.206.97.9&ldu=l&re=0&bu=wps.prenhall.com

I noticed it says wisd/restricted, but I can log on to this website using my wisd computer without issue, and I get the same error message at my home/other locations. So I know that it is not restricted. I have used all the other suggestions "no proxy", shut down firewalls, but nothing has worked.

Any help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
