Firefox 32.0.1. Win7. When I click on a tab Firefox immediately refreshes the page. Before this the last copy of page stayed until I manually refreshed.

In the last couple of days since the last upgrade to Firefox I've noticed a major change in behaviour.
It used to be that when I started Firefox and clicked on one of my tabs I would be presented with the web page as it looked the last time I looked at it. I then had the option to refresh the web page either by forcing it to load again or by selecting an option within the web page.
Since the last automatic upgrade in the last couple of days ago when I click on a tab after starting firefox it's immediately going off and reloading the web page from the html address.
This has two problems:
On some sites I have configured information within the page about my preferences. Normally I click buttons within the page to go forward or back a page. With the new bejaviour I'm takne to default page and have to manually re-enter all my preferences and filters again.
Second problem is on many sites I can a list of where I was at the last time. I then know which articles I;ve already looked and can then remember where I was at the last before updating. With the new behaviour I don't know where I was.
How can I get the old behaviour back ?
I'm running Firefox 32.0.1 on up to date Win7 .

I've kept investigating this further.
I've now found that this is a cache management issue.
I found that the cache options (Tools-Options-Advanced-Network ).
The Cache file on Firefox was set to a limit of 350 MB and the Cache was using 350 MB of storage.
I tried clearing the cache.
After I cleared the cache I found that when I had loaded a web page after I shut down Firefox and restarted and went back to the tab it loaded the web page as it had been the last time I visited.
This suggests that the problem I was encountering was that the cache was full and that rather than clearing out old content from the cache that once the cache filled up Firefox stopped writing new data to the cache.
I also note that the button labelled "Override automatic cache management" was ticked. That would tend to suggest that Firefox was being told not to delete old content when the cache filled.
I've now unticked the "Override automatic cache management" box and will see how I get on.

  • When I click on a tab it comes up blank. Before it came up with website, how do I correct it so it's not a blank page?

    I just want to be able to click on on the tab and have a search engine come up instead of a blank page. It used to do that but now it doesn't. How can I correct the problem???
    Thanks.

    The default action in Firefox when you open a new tab is to display a blank page. Many extensions can change that action, try this one.

I want my background, that is provided by the theme, to stay pemanently when i click the new tab button because the white background for a new tab is totally not my style..

    If you go to [www.zigboom.com ZigBoom] there is a customization tab that will explain how to set your about:blank (New Tab) background image using the Firefox Add-On Stylish. Hope this helps.

  • When I try to load firefox it only shows in the bar at the bottom of the screen. I can highlight it but when I click on it, it just returns to the bar.

    When I try to load firefox it only shows in the bar at the bottom of the screen. I can highlight it but when I click on it, it just returns to the bar. Can't get it to maximize. Please help.

    The "System Tray" is located at the very bottom right of your screen and is a list of most/all running applications that will show in this list.
    For your SysFader issue, this "may" be the problem:
    1 Find the "My Computer" desktop icon and right-click it. A pull-down menu will appear. Select "Properties."
    2 Click on the "Advanced" tab. This will load a new page of options.
    3 Select the "Visual Effects" tab at the top of the window and deselect "Animate Windows when minimizing and maximizing," "Fade or slide menus into view," "Fade or slide Tool Tips into view" and "Fade out Menu items after checking."
    4 Click "OK." This will remove most if not all of the Sysfader effects, at the same time correcting related errors that used to come up during opening a new file or program.

  • When using more than one tab, once I have opened a pdf using firefox my laptop will not allow me to type or click in another tab unless I drag the pdf into it's own window?

    when using more than one tab, once I have opened a .pdf using firefox my laptop will not allow me to type or click in another tab unless I drag the .pdf into it's own window? not a major problem just irritating.

    I found the cause but no solution, it's actually a plugin that does that: divx plus weblpayer (it gets installed when you install DivX on your system), if you disable it and restart firefox it all works again. But I want that plugin... so DivX need to fix this, unless it is a Firefox bug in its own core... anyway these two together creates the problem.

    I also wish firefox tab tear out tab worked more like chrome's tab tear out, much friendlier...

  • When i click on a hiper link, i get the following response: firefox doesn't know how to open this adress, because the protocol (blockedhttp) isn't associated with any program.

    when i click on a hyper-link, i get the following response: firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (blockedhttp) isn't associated with any program.
    My question is: how do i get this hyper-link to open?

    You have blocking software to change the url to prefix blocked to the url to get '''blockedhttp:''' to prevent you from opening the file. It might be the "Blocksite" extension, but I just typed in something I blocked into the location bar and I didn't see that happen. but that might not be the same as clicking on a link.
    * http://kb.mozillazine.org/Blocking_bad_sites_and_annoyances
    Maybe it's from the blocked sites list used by Firefox and other browsers maintained at google, or a parental controls application.

    We have recently seen reports about a Community Toolbar extension causing this issue with not being able to open a new tab.
    Your System Details list shows:
    *The Great Fun Community Toolbar 3.21.0.1
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • I downloaded Firefox 4.01 and now when i open a new tab, i get a blank page, instead of my home page. How do I change that? Thanks

    I downloaded Firefox 4.01 and now when i open a new tab, i get a blank page instead of my home page. How can I default to my home page when a new tab opens?

    You can do that by using an add-on such as:
    * NewTabURL - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/newtaburl
    * New Tab Homepage - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/new-tab-homepage
    Another way of opening the home page in a new tab is to middle click on the home button in the navigation toolbar.

  • I need to find my own links when i click on (new tab +)

    www.bbcarabic.com ....etc

    When you open a new tab (or ''about:newtab'' in adress bar) you should have thumbnails of most used webpages. If you see white page, you should have button in top-right corner enabling this feature.
    You can manage thumbnails, pin them or remove.

  • After migrating data from Time Machine, some of my photos are not showing up in iPhoto. I get a 'dashed rectangle." When I click on it I get ' ! in a Triangle" When I click on that, I actually can see the photo. I want to see my photos

    After migrating data from Time Machine, some of my photos are not showing up in iPhoto LIbrary view. I get a 'dashed rectangle." When I click on it I get ' ! in a Triangle" When I click on that, I actually can see the photo. I want to see all  my photos in 'Library' view, and I can't figure out how these photos seem to be arbitrarily hidden. Help, please.

    First be sure to have a backup copy of the library if you already don't have one.

  • I want to open a folder in a separate window by clicking on it.  For some reason when I click on a folder it just replaces the one I was just in.  I want them both to be open at the same time without having to go through several steps.

    I want to open a folder in a separate window by clicking on it.  For some reason when I click on a folder it just replaces the one I was just in.  I want them both to be open at the same time without having to go through several steps. Old apple operating systems made it easy to have several folders open at one time. 

    Eric, thanks that works but seems like an extra added step also to do it that way.  I've got to move and organize a ton of files and I'm looking for a easy way to get this done.  I could also open the folder into a separate tab and then drag the tab out so it becomes an open window but thats a lot of fussing around also with extra steps.  Not sure why these newer operating system seems more confusing and less user friendly than what they used to.  In the past I could just click on any folder and it would open in a separate window making it really easy to copy or move files from one place to the other just by simply dragging them from one window to the other.  Seems like I'm going through several extra steps now to do a simple task.
