When clicking on vcards, the only option available is to save the file, firefox does not let me open the vcard for immediate viewing?

Recently, whenever I double click a vcard file, the only option available is to save the vcard. I used to be able to automatically open vcards with Outlook, now this option is not accesible. I reviewed the file type associations within the control panel of Windows 7 and Outlook is the default program for .vcf files.

You can check the settings in Tools > Options > Applications

  • Firefox is not letting me open another tab when I click the 'new tab' button. It says 'done' in the corner, but never opens a new tab.

    Firefox is not letting me open another tab when I click the button or the 'new tab' in file. I have restarted my computer, installed an update, and I still have the same problem browsing.

    In past threads, this problem has been linked with the Ask toolbar.

    Two weeks ago I posted this, but no one replied telling me how to correct the problem.
    I think Firefox engineers need to improve Firefox between now and the next up-date to make it adequate to handle all major websites. There aren't many websites used by as many people as yahoo. So why have Firefox engineers ignored this deficiency in Firefox?

  • Using Firefox 3.6.20 and Windows XP Home SP3. Firefox sporatically deletes bookmarks from the bookmarks toolbar. Additionally, when I try to import from a saved HTML file, Firefox does not import the complete file. Results are inconsistent.

    Using Firefox 3.6.20 and Windows XP Home SP3. Firefox sporatically deletes bookmarks from the bookmarks toolbar. Additionally, when I try to import from a saved HTML file, Firefox does not import the complete file. Results are inconsistent.

    A possible cause is a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.

    I selected save password; but Firefox does not have it in the list of saved passwords??

    Firefox will only remember a password if you click the Remember button on the sliding bar at the top that opens when Firefox detects a password.<br />
    If you mean a check box on a web page to remember you then such a choice is stored in a cookie on your computer.
    * Websites remembering you and automatically log you in is stored in a cookie.
    * Create an allow cookie exception (Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: Exceptions) to keep such a cookie, especially for secure websites and if cookies expire when Firefox is closed.
    * In [[Private Browsing]] mode all cookies are session cookies that expire if that session is ended, so websites won't remember you.
    * Do not use [[Clear Recent History]] to clear the "Cookies" and the "Site Preferences"

  • I was trying to make a purchase from Amazon & a return but FIREFOX would not let me open drop down boxes in the purchase & return areas. I was forced to use IE to accomplish the deed. Can you investigate the problem?

    Thanks for the welcome Karsten! I’ve checked the installer disks – which appear to have all the main pieces of software, but not iDVD. If you or anyone knows where it might be hidden that would be great. Thanks for all the other info too!
    Thanks Lennart – I don’t think my computer could support iLife ’05 as it is running Mac OSX 10.3.2 and I’ve just been looking at its system requirements which state it requires 10.3.4 minimum – if you know differently, please let me know. As an alternative I have considered getting iLife ’04, but your comment about iLife ’05 being the first version to support external drives worried me (“iDVD 5 is the first iDVD version that officially supports external burners“ does this mean there is an unofficial option for iLife ‘04? Perhaps a patch similar to the one mentioned by Karsten), does that mean iLife ’04 would not support an external Lacie DVD writer?
    What is the earliest version of Toast I’d be able to use (as a money saving option!)?
    Thank you both, and apoligies for my amateurish questions…

    When I click on a link that opens a popup, firefox does not open it. Same for "File> New Window." Then, often after Firefox starts to malfunction and no longer wants to open my bookmarks. I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, removed all extensions .. But this does not solve my problem. can you help me please?

    Your above posted troubleshooting list shows quite a few extensions.
    Did you really disable all of them and still had the problem?
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]
    Which security software (firewall) do you have?
    Some can block pop-ups as well.

  • Firefox does not load up, open up when I click the icon, or when I go to firefox using the start menu.

    I downloaded firefox 4 and used it for a few days and then it ceased to open up when I clicked the icon or went through the start menu. I uninstalled and reinstalled it and it still does not open.

    Have you tried opening in Safe Mode - Hold down the Shift key as you double click.
    Your Ask Toolbar is a known problem.
    If Safe Mode works you can work your way through this -

  • When I try to click on a download link for a .pdf file Firefox does not recognize the MIME type and tries to download the file as "index.php"

    When visiting a site I frequent I tried to download a linked .pdf file. Previously I've used Firefox 7.0.1 to download the link with no problem. Using Firefox 8 however I the browser does not recognize the .pdf link's mime type. Instead of recognizing the download link as a .pdf file Firefox 8 tries to download it as "index.php". Firefox 8 does this with .doc files and .txt files as well. When I downgrade to 7.0.1 again the problem disappears.

    Hi hakmacpace,
    I'd try starting Firefox in [[Safe Mode]]. If you don't have the issue while all of your add-ons, extensions, and themes are disabled, you can try adding them back in one by one until you find the culprit. You should look at the [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Troubleshooting-extensions-themes Extensions and Themes troubleshooting guide ] and the [[Troubleshooting plugins]] article as well.
    You could also try [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Managing-profiles?s=create+a+new+profile&r=2&e=es&as=s#w_creating-a-profile Creating a new profile].
    Hopefully this helps!

  • When I use find, Firefox does not let me complete typing the word. Keystrokes effect the page as opposed to the find box (ex. backspace goes back a page instead of a character in the box). How do I fix this?

    When I type in the Find box, Firefox interrupts me before I complete typing the word (usually in the first 4 letters. "Focus" moves from the Find entry box to the page itself. If I type backspace Firefox goes back one page of browsing, not one character in the box. I disabled Searchmenu, but that did not help.

    == This happened ==

    == The last month or so, I'm not sure of the specific trigger.

    Thanks for responding Chris.
    I hadn't restarted after disabling SearchMenu. Having restarted, it would appear that the problem was, in fact, SearchMenu. Which was my suspicion. Once Find highlights a "word" SearchMenu interrupts to offer its services. I guess I'll post on their board, to see if there's a solution.
    I should have restarted before posting. My apologies. Rookie move.
    Thanks again, Chris.
