After upgrading to Firefox 4.0.1, it no longer will open external links - anything from emails, IMs, databases won't open - how can I fix this?

No links from external programs will open - this is usually kind of ok since I can cut and paste, but some links from databases don't provide copy-able links, meaning I cannot access information via Firefox.

Hi BladedxRayne,
You should look at the article [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Preferences_not_saved Preferences not saved].
Hopefully this helps!

  • After upgrading my iPhone 4S to iOS6, my Find My Friends app no longer links to my Contacts and does not show contact names. It only shows e-mail addresses and does not link up to the corresponding email address in my Contacts. How can I fix this?

    I am also having problems with a site I am building. No matter what websafe font I use it displays as New Times Roman in FireFox. The correct fonts show in both IE9 and Chrome.
    In addition, text shifts in FireFox. I have to position other text objects farther and farther apart as I go down the page or they start to overlap. Nav buttons and other images also have to be positioned in the wrong place for them to be in the correct place when the page is opened in FireFox. FireFox should display pages correctly by default. I can't expect th average user to have to tweek his/her settings to display my site.
    I have been recommending FireFox on my website as the best browser. I might have to change that and abandon FireFox myself.

    Hi Deb,
    Deauthorizing all is definitely the way to go.  You will just need to authorize your computer again after, as well as your husband's.
    Here's some additional information on deauthorizing all:

  • I'm trying to uninstall firefox and reinstall it as it keeps freezing, but it wont close and so I cant reinstall it. How can I fix this?

    For the last fortnight or so, firefox kept freezing, but it would always fix itself within a minute or so. I did a computer scan and everything was clean and I reduced the number of tabs I had open to try and speed things up, but even when I had only one tab open, it would freeze. Today, it froze and hasnt fixed itself even after 5 hours, and after ive restarted my laptop. A message keeps popping up about 'a script has stopped working' and whatever I press makes no change (stop script, or continue). Im trying to uninstall and reinstall firefox, but I can't uninstall it until the programme is closed. But I cant close it as it is completely frozen. How can I fix this?
    Thanks in advcance.

    Usually uninstalling and reinstalling only helps if the program files are damaged. When the issue if an add-on or setting, then you wouldn't expect to see any change. (I am assuming that you do not remove all your personal data, as that would blow away your bookmarks.)
    If this started after you installed Firefox 27, do you want to test whether Firefox 26 still works smoothly? This article has a link to download the installer from Firefox 26 (you need to visit using Firefox 27 to get the link): [[Install an older version of Firefox]].

  • Firefox has been unusable because of crashes; I want to delete it from my desktop and re-install; please, how can I do this? I'm stuck with using safari and I want to be able to get back to using firefox!

    firefox crashes on opening, every time, and very speedily; I have sent reports in, when it began, without receiving any help; since then I've been trying delete firefox and reinstall it, but have miserably failed; I have very little time to play around with it, so have fallen back to safari, but I want to get back to it as simply as possible! I am the opposite of a computer nerd, as you can imagine! But I know what I like ...
    Simple help, please? Many thanks.

  • I have firefox 4 Beta installed on my computer and I can't get the new Firefox 4 to install, so some of the functions don't work,such as dropdowns on Google Toolbar? How can I fix this?

    I installed Firefox 4 beta when it was available as a tester before Firefox 4 was released, so I had two versions of Firefox on my computer. When Firefox 4 was released this week, I installed it and it replaced Firefox 3.6.15. For some reason it seems it didn't install the full version of Firefox 4, instead it's a similar version to the Beta version. For example, the drop down on Google search doesn't work when you click on an item in the drop down. Also the orange button that is supposed to replace the buttons on the top left of the browser is not there. It still has the 8 buttons, ie File, Edit, etc. How can I get the full version to install on my computer? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling it and I get the same result. My computer runs Windows XP Media center Edition OS. Please advise me on how to fix this. Thanks.

    Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache. In order to try to fix these problems, the first step is to clear both cookies and the cache.
    Note: ''This will temporarily log you out of all sites you're logged in to.''
    To clear cache and cookies do the following:
    #Go to Firefox > History > Clear recent history or (if no Firefox button is shown) go to Tools > Clear recent history.
    #Under "Time range to clear", select "Everything".
    #Now, click the arrow next to Details to toggle the Details list active.
    #From the details list, check ''Cache'' and ''Cookies'' and uncheck everything else.
    #Now click the ''Clear now'' button.
    Further information can be found in the [[Clear your cache, history and other personal information in Firefox]] article.
    Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!
    I also have a question. Have you ever been able to access these sites from the Firefox on that computer?

  • Firefox has always opened with an extra tab that says "server not found." How can I fix this?

    Several years ago, I downloaded Firefox for the first time on my Xp machine. The browser opens to the home page, but up in the tab area, there is always, and I mean through EVERY version and upgrade since that first one, including the most recent version 4, there is a second tab just to the right of the home page tab that says, "server not found." Now, since the home page loaded, it is obvious to me that the server WAS indeed "found." what I don't understand is why this second tab is there. Any ideas? I have read through the FAQ about not finding the server, and nothing there is relevant to this, as far as I can see.

    How many pages do you have set as your "homepage"? <br />
    Firefox allows for multiple homepages in separate tabs, separated by the pipe | symbol.
    Try resetting your homepage. <br />

  • Firefox won't let me enable the setting to re-open my last session from ethere hostory or the main settings how can i fix??

    i got to the menu-settings-geniral-i only have use home page or a blank page it will not allow me to select in-order to re-store my last session and same in the history menu it wont allow me to click on it!

    This is not a reply. I just want to elaborate on this problem.
    My computer freezes occasionally when it is used after being sleep for a while. The spinning ball appears and everything is totally disabled. Nothing on the keyboard works.
    The mouse moves, but does not work.
    The only solution is to turn the power off and on (losing all data in open applications.)
    I kept the System monitor running on the side to find out which program was running when the computer froze. The Monitor as well as all other applications froze, but the data showed:
    Firefox 18.4%
    Activity Monitor 0.9%
    Firefox Plugin 0.2%
    This is all the information I have. By the way, I am using iMac with OS 10.6.

  • When I try to open Firefox, I get a message saying that firefox is already currently running, although it is not running. Close and try again or restart computer. How can I fix this?

    I always close Firefox when I am finished with the web. When I try to open it later, I often get a message saying that firefox is currently running, so close it first. As far as I can tell, firefox is not running. The message then says to restart your computer and try again. I restart my computer and then firefox opens.

  • Using 6.0.2 just updated, Firefox has stopped responding to web page calls from other programs such as Thunderbird. How can I fix this?

    running Windows 7, Firefox 6.0.2 and Thunderbird 3.0.2

    Unfortunately I tried that and it didn't work. Thanks for the help though. I tried to uninstall and it said I couldn't because the file is corrupt or something, but I think I finally got it uninstalled and/or deleted or whatever, but now I try to reinstall/download it again from the beginning and I can't. No matter what I do I can not get Firefox working again. No matter how many times I try to redownload it. Any other suggestions?

  • When I close Firefox it often disconnects my broadband link (the broadband reconnects itself in a few seconds) how can I fix this?

    This began happening several months ago. Calls to my broadband provider and work on modem did not solve the problem. I completely recovered my computer and reinstalled everything. At first everything seemed OK. Now it has happened again several times.

    For the list of teachers there are email addresses in the right hand column, did you click on an email address?
    If you did that could explain the multiple tabs being opened. What may have happened is you have the mailto protocol set to open Firefox which results in 100s of tabs opening when you click on an email address. For details on fixing that see [[Firefox keeps opening many tabs or windows]], in particular the section on "Change the action for a content type". My guess is you will find mailto is set to "Use Firefox".

  • I have done the update to Firefox 7 yet when I open Firefox it tells me I need to update to the newest version which I just did, how can I fix this?

    I keep my Firefox up-to-date at all times but the last few weeks Gmail has been telling me that I am using an older version which it no longer supports even though I have the updated version. I was notified that Firefox could be updated to the newest version, which I did. After the update when I opened Firefox it told me that I needed to update to the newest version which I had already done. How can I fix this?

    Glad to hear it
