View Full Version : Trying to FIX Firefox, now it's really messed up ...

... yes, I can't even make a list of "New Posts," then tell it one-by-one to "open in new tab," as usual. All it will do is open a new blank tab ... and the only way I can read a post/thread is to make it open in the same tab as the list ... not a good option.
Have played endlessly with both the "Tab Utilities" options and the "Tab Mix Plus" options [working right now, BTW, without seeing the cursor anywhere ... have to just click somewhere and hope I got it in the right place.
Even went to find the file re saved "browser settings" from month ago that I'd saved when it was doing OK, did the "import" re that file, and it's still not working right. Stumped! :(

Any possibility of just deleting it and re-downloading the whole thing?

Thanks, Dana, but that's where I got messed up in the first place. Seems each time they have what they call a "security update," I cringe (see a cpl of typos above, but leaving them, anyway!). Why? Because it seems there's always something weird going on with how I can do tabs, or not, once the "update(which downgrades me, it seems!)" is down. So many times lately I've had to try to work & work to get them tow rok at least partially like they used to.
BUT this time ... ???
PS * tho't of giving up on FF, & trying MSIE ... but I don't seem to get along well with that one ... maybe so long w/FF that it just doesn't seem quite right?? ;)

Oh, man! Went ahead and told it in both tab option places to just go back to defaults.
But, for some odd reason now, I can't seem to get into my Yahoo mail to read it. It comes up what looks to be inside the mailbox, after I put in name/password, but I cannot get it to let me read what I try to click on! Things are really going weird here. :(

OK, I succumbed to daring to wipe it out, re-download it. Weird thing is that some of those tab things that were not there at all on the last download, so I had to play around with the "tab options" of various sorts, are suddenly here now ... did they do something to 3.6.10 to have them back with the download, without having to reinstall them again ... or what?
Whatever, won't worry about it since most -- not all -- of them are back. ;)
Uh-oh ... forgot about the mail problem we had, too ... the "sign-in seal" (yahoo) had disappeared last time, and is still not there now, either. :( Hopefully someone had not gotten into the mailbox again, as happened last year/early this year sometime.
