When I click on a link, I would like the new web page to open in the same window. What settings do I need to do this ? Thank you.

I tried the options / tabs and I could not find a setting for this. I am running Windows 7 with Firefox 5.0 Thank you.

'''Try Firefox Safe Mode''' to see if the problem goes away. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.
''(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)''
* You can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the '''Shift''' key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
* Or open the Help menu and click on the '''Restart with Add-ons Disabled...''' menu item while Firefox is running.
''Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode"''
'''''If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode''''', your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] article for that.
''To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.''
Please report back soon.

    I have a hitachi hard drive from an old pc. I would like to transfer pics and music to my new macbook air. What cord do I need to make this possible?

    Some external cases include cords others (like some printers) consider the cord to be "optional" - read the package or product description. Other World Computing, HH Greg, OfficeMax, any box store or local computer store should have a case for your old drive.
    You are fortunate in that the Mac will automagically read the DOS format disk... you'd never be able to connect and old Mac HD to a WinDUHows machine.

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.<br />
    You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.<br />
    You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

  • I have lost my simcard but would like the same number?

    I lost my simcard but would like the same number. I cannot ring up as I live in Sweden currently, but I am coming home for a week later in August. Is there a way I can get a simcard posted to my home address in England with the same number I used to have?  Also is there an email address for EE mobile network? I have looked all over but have not found anything. Thank you! 

    Order it online https://explore.ee.co.uk/Order-a-new-SIM for £10. It will be sent to your registered addy. There is no email for mobile custs.

  • When I click on a link in an email, the comoputer locks p and the screen goes black, requiring a shut down from the on-off switch. My version of Firefox is up-to-date.

    The on-off switch is the only way I can turn off the computer, because the screen is black. Then I turn on the computer again to reboot, and when I click on Firefox again it takes from 30 to 90 seconds before Firefox opens, at which point I get a message asking if I want to begin a new session. Then I open emails and don't click on any links. If I check my email using Internet Explorer, the problem does not occur. Your help would be appreciated. After 50 years of operating comoputers, I have never seen this problem. Regards----Lloyd Schultz

    Fred...thanks, but this is not about one site. The same thing happens often, with many sites, when i click a link that has come up in Google search, or on Twitter or Facebook or within a story I'm reading. The link takes me to the url of what it was supposed to take me too, then within a second or so it switches to that Yahoo 'error handler' url, a page that offers search for similar sites.
    Again, thank you.

  • When I click on a link it moves to the top of the page

    I am new to this forum and fairly new to dreamweaver so I hope this isn't a silly question. I am designing a large number of web pages which will only be viewed on the C:\ drive and not posted on a server.
    I have inserted hyperlinks on the index page linking to other pages in the same folder. I am using a css sheet to define each of the links.
    Now to the problem. When I preview the index page in internet explorer and I click on a link the link works but the actual link itself moves to the top left corner of the index page.
    An example of the html code is:
    <a href="channel.html" title="Channel" id="Channel"
         Channel
         </a>
    The relevant css code is:
    #Channel:link {
         position: absolute
         left:372px;
         top::235px;
         width:100px;
         margin-bottom:0px;
         color:#FFFFFF
         font-weight:normal;
         font-size:12px;
         font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    #Channel:hover {
         color:0000ee;
         font-weight:normal
         text-decoration:none;
    #Channel:visited {
         color:#551a8b;
         font-weight:normal;
    #Channel:active {
         color:0000ee;
         font-weight:normal;
         text-decoration:none;
    If anyone could explain what I am doing wrong I would be most grateful.

    Your whole presentational approach on that page is flawed.

    You have the body tag, followed by oodles of absolutely positioned elements, followed by naked links with a spurious </p> tag at the end.  Not only are you not allowed to have naked links on the page (they must be contained in something like a <p>, or a <td>, or a <li>, etc.) but since the content above the links is entirely composed of absolutely positioned elements (which are removed from the normal flow), the links are exactly where they should be - at the top of the page.  There is nothing in your layout that would place them anywhere else.

  • Sometimes, when I click on a link, I see in the address bar the words: "Search bookmarks and history" (greyed out) just before I am taken to the link. Should I be worried? Is someone searching my personal data? Is this just a FireFox error msg?

    Sometimes, when I click a link on a web page, I see in the address bar the words: "Search bookmarks and history" (greyed out) just before I am taken to the link I clicked. A moment later, when I'm at the link, its address appears in the address bar, and all is normal. It seems that this happens only from some particular sites. Is FireFox reporting that my bookmarks and history are being searched?
    Should I be worried? Is someone searching my personal data? Is this just a FireFox error msg when it has trouble finding the website I requested?

    That is OK. Firefox will only display the link in the location bar after the DNS look up has succeeded and a connection to the server has been established. Until that has been done you see the default setting for the location bar: Tools > Options > Privacy > Location Bar: When using the location bar, suggest

  • When I click on a link in an email, nothing happens; Firefox used to open the page. I am using a Mac computer, latest OS, and the Mac mail program.

    I have tried quiting Firefox and setting Safari to my default browser. Links open on Safari just fine. When I go back to Firefox as my default, I continue to have the same issue, links will not open in Firefox.

    You can also quit and relaunch Firefox and then
    the link will open in mac mail.

  • When I click on a link on my email the page does not appear in the forefront in safari.... it gets "hidden" behind whatever page safari is displaying

    I recently started having this problem after downloading Lion and some updates after that. Not sure what to do to fix it or if its not fixable on my end. Is anyone else having this problem?
    Thanks
    Paul

    Yes its the same and I already tried that, Thank you. the crazy thing is that the link opens up a window but i can't even select anything on it or make it active, its hidden and if I swipe to the next desktop I can see it. But i need to already have the mouse pointer over the close button or i would not even be able to close it. Very strange. ANYONE?

  • In email, when I click on a "pdf" file, how do i get it to just open instead of being asked what program I want to use?

    When I get a "pdf" in an email and I click on the "pdf" button, I am always asked what program I want to use. How do I get the file to just open automatically?

    You can specify in Windows what program to use for a given extension, for instance Adobe Acrobat Reader, for files with PDF extension. How you can connect the program and the extension, is described in this article; [http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Change-which-programs-Windows-uses-by-default "Change which programs Windows uses by default"]
    In Firefox PDF links get opened automatically with Acrobat reader. When clicking on PDF attachments in Thunderbird, however, you will need to associate the program and the extension as described in the above article.
    Hope it helps!
