External links restore Firefox
I *always* run maximized.
Whenever I hit a link in Thunderbird (which is how I get virtually all
my links), Firefox pops to the front *restored* and I have to click the
widget to maximize it again.
This is driving me nuts! It didn't used to happen! How can I make it stop?

You asked why I took it off but did not ask more than the basics. I put
security but in fact I put on Fire fox today and found a GOOGLE front
page for searching when I had nothing there before. I wondered if I had
been hijacked or you had done a very stupid update. I still do not know
for sure. I do not ever use Google that I know of. The biggest spy on
computers in the world and you should know better. If I find it is
correct on Firefox I will go back to IE. At...External Link Loads Firefox Portable with Wrong Profile
I have Firefox Portable installed in a folder below "My Documents"(1).
My Firefox profile is there too(2). However, when I click on an external
link (e.g., in an e-mail), and Firefox is not running yet, Firefox will
load with the default profile located in the "normal" profile directory(3).
But I want Firefox to load the profile located in the directory where my
Portable Firefox is installed(2).
Is that a bug or a feature? Bug#?
Thanks for any insight you can provide!

Summary: FireFox -update- installed over FireFox Beta (links)
In the past 35 hours I've had two updates: the first installed a FireFox
update. That was fine except it overwrote my FF3 BETA -- my default
browser. [By "overwrote" I mean the links and default browser appeared
to now be the regular FF, updated, instead of the FF3-beta.]
Just this morning, an FF-beta3 update arrived. It overwrote (in the
same sense) the previous default/links; now I'm back to where I wanted

First, this is not a problem with making Firefox my default browser.
I have been using IE but recently switched to Firefox because I run
Win98, and IE has lots of security problems. But with IE, in Tools
>Options > Programs, I could assign a certain email program to open
automatically when i clicked an email link in a Web site. I use Web
mail; my email domain, sbcglobal.net, uses AT&T Yahoo Mail, which is
actually just Yahoo Mail. So in IE I specfied AT&T Yahoo Mail. When I
clicked an email link, another IE window opened to a Yahoo Mail

For a short time now (likely since upgrading to FF 1.5.02) I've noticed that
when running a Firefox session, ZA will popup a notice that Firefox --
verified the same exe as the running one -- is "trying to access the
internet." This is confusing because it's already accessing the internet,
However, the destination IP is always along the lines of
126.96.36.199:DNS, which translates to dns1.chcgil.sbcglobal.net, part of
my ISP. So I've been saying yes. But I'm wondering why of a sudden this
access is taking place, or being questioned, or what...Firefox, and Firefox Portable

After several hefty fallouts with AOL, and the complete dogs dinner we
are presented with that they claim is worthy of using, be it the AOL9
browser, I decided to try Firefox....
I am very annoyed.
Why?... because stupidly, I had not tried Firefox EARLIER....
I have now replaced AOL9 completely on all the family computers with

When I quit firefox (closing the window) and I run "ps -C firefox" and
"ps -C firefox-bin" both are shown as still running even a minute later!
How do I get firefox to actually close?
It could be killall firefox.bin

I don't know if this will go anywhere, but as both a die-hard Firefox
user and an advocate for wildlife, I think it should be said.... As you
may or may not know, "firefox" is the literal translation of the Chinese
name for the Red Panda. Yes, the OTHER panda -- the cute, orange,
raccoon-like one, not the big, black-and-white, bear-like one.

When I click on an external link, e.g. web page link in T'bird email or

not responding. To open a new window you must first close the existing

Firefox is my default browser - for certain!

each with their own profiles.
