Upgrading to new version changes new tab behavior

Whenever I use the search window, I always want the results in a new tab; when I click on one of the results, I always want the clicked on link to open in a new tab so that the list of search results remains in its own tab UNTIL I CHOOSE TO CLOSE IT. Whenever I click on a link on a site, I want the page with the link to remain and for the new link to open in a new tab.

How do I get this behavior to remain forever and why does firefox, google, yahoo whomever keep trying to change this ? I do not want to use a key combo (Alt+) or whatever for those rare occasions I want to do those; I never want to see any other behavior

The about:config change false=> true no longer works?

Why are upgrades unable to just read a users preferences and maintain them after each upgrade. If I wanted someone else deciding how I use a browser, I'd use MSIE.

I'm able to download the images just fine, but when I try to open them, I see the same error message- "The file "name.png" could not be opened. It may be damaged or use a file format that Preview doesn't recognize."

I've tried creating a new Firefox profile, running Firefox with ad-ons disabled, and just plain deleting the one ad-on I had running. (AdBlock Plus.) Deleting AdBlock Plus seemed to have no effect, so I put it back.

I know it's not the website I'm trying to save images from, because I have the same issue saving images from other websites. I've even tried right-clicking and saving stuff from my own Photobucket account, so I know there shouldn't be anything wrong with the images, and have gotten the same error message I mentioned above when trying to open them.

Also, I can save anything I want from Safari, including the same exact image files that won't save in a usable fashion from Firefox.

I really hope someone can help. This has been very frustrating.

Hello All,

I am having a very aggravating problem with Firefox. It is the latest version that has been updated and only has the AdBlock add on installed. Each time I start Firefox the Bookmarks Toolbar appears at the top under the browsing tabs.

I have tried unchecking the box in the "VIEW" menu, that doesn't work. I have tried clicking the 3 horizontal black lines in the right corner and customizing where I click the "Show/Hide Toolbars" and that doesn't work. I have just done the REFRESH of FireFox and that didn't work. I checked and I DO NOT have a USER PROFILE so there is nothing there to change. I have Googled it and went thru 5 or 6 pages of results and tried any of them that looked promising only to see that no matter what I do, the BOOKMARKS TOOLBAR is still showing up in it's usual place.

This is really annoying. I am on a laptop and I don't have the screen real estate to spare. If I had a HUGE desktop monitor, I wouldn't care, but I don't. I can't believe that this is such a problem. Something this simple should be something that can be taken care of with ease, but it is proving far different than that.

Can anyone out there help me out? Surely there are more users than me that are irritated by this problem. Hopefully someone can chime in and tell me how to stop this toolbar from appearing any more.

PLEASE....help if you can.

Thank you for your time and any help you can give me.

I keep trying to reset Firefox, enter it in safe mode, disable add-on/plug-ins and nothing works.

When I pull up a youtube video, the video stays on a black screen and the video thumbnails are plain white. Also loading is almost instantly stopped when pulling up a video. When I visit other websites (Gaia Online mainly) and I scroll over a tab that would normally drop down a list of links to click on, nothing is dropped/opened.

Firefox/Flash seems to crash at least a couple of times a day.

I updated Flash in Firefox 42.0 to version 2.0.0.235. It crashed 90% of the time, even with hardware acceleration off. It does not crash with Flash Protected Mode turned off. I then updated Firefox to 43.0. Flash crashes every time, even with Flash Protected Mode off. No Flash problems on this Win-10 PC with Microsoft Edge or Chrome. Seems that FIrefox 43 and Flash are incompatible. Hopefully Mozilla and/or Adobe will fix in the next release.

Hi Peoples - I thought I would be pleased with the new "Private Browsing" facility - unfortunately this is NOT the case: -

It does not appear possible to toggle between a Private and a non private window - for the use of "Firefox Hello" (quite why such is not available within a Private Window can only be due to some poorly written software... ).

Anyways - my Firefox homepage would appear to be STUCK in Private mode - no amount of restarting appears to fix this... changing browsers does not solve this.

As a further comment - when one selects remove history and "Never remember history" the auto-fill memory for email addresses etc is lost - this is most inconvenient. Why can we not have a simple cache which allows the storage & remembrance of common items such as email addresses but does NOT remember browsing history?

I've encountered a strange glitch with YouTube specifically, only in Firefox. Namely, numerous pieces of the interface - the icons on buttons (like the Like/Dislike buttons) and things, menu buttons, the logo in the upper left - are simply invisible. It's most noticeable along the top. I've attached a screenshot. You can see the logo is absent, there's no button for the upper left dropdown (even when I'm logged in), and there's even no magnifying glass in the search bar button. These are only missing in Firefox. Strangest of all, these DO appear when I access the site via a proxy. I've tried mucking with my hosts file and flushing my DNS, as well as running Firefox in safe mode and resetting it, to no avail. It's possible I'm overlooking something, but I haven't yet noticed similar problems on any other sites.

I recently re-installed Firefox after obtaining a bunch of adware/malware. I've successfully cleaned my PC of all the junkware, but now, every time I click a link or Firefox is loading something, the browser flashes. It's almost like it's flickering above the menu bar and says "Not Responding." I've tried using Firefox in safe mode, which didn't help, and I've disabled "hardware acceleration if available." Didn't fix it. I have also uninstalled my anti-virus suite, just to see if it was that new program causing the problem. This did not fix it either. This is my favorite browser and I would rather not have to switch. Please help!

Yesterday, with Firefox 42.0, my LastPass and ePub addons were working just fine. The problem started when I decided to install the "binary" version of LastPass in Chrome (which lets me type my LP password just once to unlock all browsers). LP had me download the installer, and I proceeded to install it. At the end of the install, a tab opened in Firefox, saying "Switch to the Install Addons tab, and 'allow' the install of the Firefox plugin" Well, there was no such tab. On that instructions tab, it said "if that tab isn't open, click here" so I clicked there, and it brought me to another page with a button to Install LastPass, so I did, and it had me restart Firefox, you know, as it does, but when Firefox restarted, LastPass wasn't there. I have since rebooted, and restarted several times, completely uninstalled and reinstalled LastPass, used the "Refresh" button in Firefox to reset to defaults and deleted some extension.?? files from my profile. Still, I can not get LastPass to display like it did just yesterday with this same version of Firefox. The refresh also removed the ePub addon, which I have also tried to reinstall to no avail. Help!

My tabs (all the pages I want to see every day when I start Firefox) were no longer loading after my last upgrade of Firefox. The system was loading the last browser selections open at the time the program was shut down. If there was a SINGLE tab on the last active browser, that tab and only that tab was loading when I re-opened Firefox.

SOLUTION FOR ME WAS: 1. Generate the string of tabs you want by opening them in a single browser. 2. Go to Options -> General (access via the top right triple bar symbol just below the + sign). 3. Select "When Firefox Starts" "Show My Homepage." 4. Click "Use Current Pages." 5. Save a copy of the list of pages that is generated in step 4 (i.e. save code from step 4; it is the list of pages you want to start when you open Firefox) in Windows Notepad or equivalent. 6. Enter just "about:config" (no quotes) in the browser address bar at the top. 7. Ignore "This may void your warranty" and click on "I'll Be Careful..." 8. Click on "browser.startup.homepage" on the list and Right Click the line and select "Modify." 9. Enter the code you copied in step 5 and put it in the space provided. 10. Click "OK." 11. Close the browser after closing a few of your selected pages for startup and be sure that when it reloads, you see the entire set, including the pages you closed just prior to closing the browser.

I have not tried to do this with two open Firefox browsers. It WAS previously possible for me to open up multiple browser sets by simply opening Firefox. I'll test that after publishing this solution. (IF it was in fact here already, I could not easily find it.)

MY QUESTION: If you know the code for opening up multiple Firefox browsers on start-up of Firefox, could you please supply that below? Thanks.

I wasted a lot of time checking all the other things people had listed such as malware etc. etc., so I hope this saves someone some time!  ;)

This is extremely annoying and I will switch to IE after upgrading if there is no immediate resolution IMMEDIATELY since every time I open the browser or click on anything, I get solicited to revert back to my old homepage which was not set by me. I don't want "Ask.com" as my homepage (or search engine) as I do not like it and want the freedom to have my own homepage without being harassed and/or solicited every time I click on something! This is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by me. I don't have the time to deal with this and have already WASTED my time by posting this question, then having to set up an account, then giving details, then having to login only to have my details gone causing me to HAVE TO RE-INSERT THE DETAILS INTO THIS QUESTION WHEN I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO BE DEALING WITH THIS AT ALL.........NO RESPECT FOR MY TIME AND I AM NOT HAPPY!!!

I can only get there by clicking the Home icon. Also, if I do that, then visit a differenet linked page (still within the BBC site), I do get a Balck Back arrow available BUT only to the other linked page, NOT the Home page.
