I have Google set to show results in a new window. When I click on a results page link Firefox reverts to search results page almost instantly

I have Google set to show results in a new window, never use Google instant & search filtering off. When I click on a link on the results page Firefox reverts to the search results page almost instantly. I can of course select the desired page (via windows Aero). This happens on several computers, PCs & Laptops.
Not a major problem but VERY irritating. This seems to have happened from a few update ago ?

  • Can I set Safari to open a new window when I click on it in the dock?

    is there a way to set my safari to open a new window when i click on it in the dock i surf multiple websites at once and i dont like how i have to right clik and scroll up to pick open a new window. can i set it to just open a new window instead of opening the page that already opened

    yeah, instead of using multiple windows, you can use multiple tabs inside one window. That way, you can browse multiple websites at once without having to flick back and forth between multiple windows.
    To open tabs of the websites you want to browse, just right-hand click on whatever website you want to visit (For example a site from your bookmarks or a site from a Google search result) and select 'open link in tab'.

  • Why does firefox intermittantly open a new window when I click on an existing tab? This only happens when I have three or more tabs open.

    Several times now Firefox 4.0.1, when clicking on a tab (three or more tabs open) I immediately moves that tab to it's own window and closes the tab in the existing window.

    That is probably the "tear-off tabs" feature. A slight movement (usually downward) when clicking on an existing tab will cause that tab to "tear-off" and open in a new window. You can drag the tab back to the previous window. You can also install this add-on to stop the behavior: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bug489729-disable-detach-and-t/

  • Finder is not working properly mac osx 10.7.4 it no longer launches a new window when I click the finder icon - I have to right click and open a new window

    Hi
    Just recently Finder has stopped behaving as it normally would. Clicking the icon doesn't seem to launch the finder window. I have to right click the finder icon and then click New Finder Window. Sometimes there is no response for sometime and then finally it does open a window. If I click finder when a wondow is open it does not shift focus to finder anymore. I am sure this did not use to be the case?
    PS. not sure if this is how to put things on the forum as haven't used them before!
    Julian

    Click on the spotlight icon in the top right of your screen (looks like a magnifying glass), type
    Terminal
    and press 'return'.
    In the window that opens up, paste or type this exactly into the window
    killall Finder; killall Dock
    (that's case sensitive) and press 'return'.
    You'll notice the Dock disappear for a second or two then return, as do any open Finder windows.
    Test using Finder as normal. Same problem?

  • My Google preferences are set to show search results in a new window. However, when I do a Google search, it Firefox always opens 2 new windows with the (same) results. How can I fix this?

    I did not change my Google settings. I always have had it set to open search results in a new window. Some time ago, it started opening up two windows that have identical url/content.

    That issue can be caused by an extension that isn't working properly.
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
    *Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

  • Searching Google from Firefox yields strange search results

    When searching Google using Firefox browser my search results are not consistent with normal results. Logged out of Google of course. Example: I search something like ccleaner or firefox and there is not a result linking to them at all. But the links that do show up seem to be related just not the obvious top hits. Search Bing and the first result should be bing.com , right?

    You do not tell us what OS version you have. In OS 10.8.2, do this:

  • Firefox wont display search results on certain engines (Google, yahoo). IE works fine and Bing also displays

    For the past 2 days, Firefox wont display search results on Google or Yahoo. Tried Bing it worked fine, tried Internet Explorer and it worked fine. All that gets displayed is a blank page, no errors or anything like that.

  • I have just set up Itunes match on my new iMac. It is saying I can access all my 9000 songs but only the playlist tab is live. Am I missing something?

    Hi
    I have just set up itunes match on my new imac. It is saying I can access all my 9000 songs but only the playlist tab is live - I can't access albums or songs. Am I missing something?
    Thanks

    Hi,
    I do not understand your problem. iTunes Match does not change the way iTunes looks. When match process is complete, the match screen tells you how much music you have in the cloud.
    Across the top of screen you have options to select songs, albums, artist, composers etc.
    Suggest that from main menu, select view>show sidebar.

  • Why such sorry sound quality on iTunes? On some of my purchases the sound level is suppressed on the audio. On others the volume is so low that if I have it set for another song and a new one starts I have to increase the volume to hear it.

    Why such sorry sound quality on iTunes? On some of my purchases the sound level is suppressed on the audio. On others the volume is so low that if I have it set for another song and a new one starts I have to increase the volume to hear it.
    There is so much distortion on some of the music I have to play it with QuickTime to get a "clean" track.
    What can be done to get a consistent volume level or is this another typical Apple product that you have to take what you get and be happy because it's not a Microsoft product?

    If that's the best you can do why don't you get on another forum?

  • HT4623 I already have ios 7.0 installed in my iphone 4S. Although the size of ios 7.0.2  shows only a few MB, but when i click update using from my itunes it shows it is downloading 1.19GB. Why is this ? Do i have to download 1.19 GB?

    If you update using iTunes, the full iOS is downloaded. If you update directly on your phone, this is called a "Delta" update, & only the changes to the iOS are downloaded. That's why you see the difference you see.

    I did't lose any kind of data.. it was fix on time.
    Anyway, thank u guys....and don't forget that noise !!!  
    P.S. I'll make a song with that noise sample to remember it

  • Displaying Search iview results in a new window

    Hi,
    I am using a basicsearch iview to search a folder. Now, when I do a search I want the results to open in a new window. I was going over some questions in the SDN Forum and for the option "Launch in New Window", I did select Display in Seperate Window. Still, the results are not showing up in a new window. Is there anything else which needs to be done? I did create the component and options set. Does the Layout Set for Search Results play any role here? I am not very familiar with it and hence I have not done any configurations for it. Can anyone please point me in the right direction? Thanks for your valuable time and effort.
    Sincerely,
    Sri

    Hi Sri,
    The content in our implementation (project) is not transported yet, so I don't know if any problems will arise. But I just found a document which descripes a transport procedure. You can find on the SDN KM&C homepage or via this link: https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/ep/6.0/best practice for transporting sap netweaver portal content.pdf
    Hope it helps solving your problems.
    Best regards,

  • MSN results open in new Window

    Up until recently, MSN searches would open up in a new tab. Now though, the results show up in a new window. I've tried this in IE, but there, they open up in a new tab like Firefox before.

    In your documents folder, you should have a file MuseLog.txt. Could you send this file, as well as your .muse file, to [email protected] with a link to this thread? Also, if you could include a description of what element or text you were trying to apply this to, that would be helpful. If your file is over 20mb, you can use Adobe SendNow or SendThisFile. We'll take a look and see if we can't reproduce the issue.
