I have looked around for a download concerning "ad remover" similar to Norton and supposed Firefox had a free or cheaper one already? For example when following education videos on YouTube (w/o being a premium visitor) it's a blessing not to be interrupted constantly. I tested Norton, works fine but it's quite expensive.

I have searched for above at Mozilla, but get articles "ad blocker" and how to prevent users URL addresses from being saved when visiting a site and these are not the same if understanding right?

Please advice link to an "ad remover" at Firefox when visiting other websites because it saves hours every week. If Firefox don't have one, my proposal is that Firefox develops one, either for free or for a limited amount of monthly cost (say $0.5-1/month?). I'm pretty sure it would be a success.

Sorry if I've asked for something that already exists, in that case please advise where I can find it. I'd be glad to download and take advantage of it.

When I go to a web page the browser opens the page and then automatically goes to the bottom of the page. I have to scroll to the top of the page. Every time I click within the page and return to the main page, it goes back to the bottom of the page. Is there a way to prevent this? It gets to be very annoying and when I am on a site where I will be moving around a lot, I change to another browser. None of the other browsers do this. It doesn't do this on every page, but more than 50%. Thank you.

The autocomplete feature keeps showing me the US version of the KLM website when I type "kl" in the address bar instead of my local version. And I can't seem to get rid of it, or to get my local version instead.

How to control what is the first result shown in the address bar ?

I have no problem with Firefox automatic updating, but I have a problem with the irritating popup coming every time after every update. Why do you nag your users like this? And why is there no "don't show this anymore" checkbox? Why is there no close button and you need to click trough the 5 steps every time??? Is there any way to disable this irritating popup in about:config ?

I installed my first Firefox years ago to get rid of popups and now Mozilla is slipping them in our face. Not nice.

I use Thunderbird with two different ISPs (one with multiple email accounts), which require different outgoing mail servers. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings box, one of these is set as the default - i.e. in bold with (Default) after the server address. I can change which of the the email accounts is the default (and therefore its outgoing server) using the Set Default button to the right of this box, but I can find no way to deselect any of them from being the default. How do you do this?

Hi

On a recent automatic update, my mail merge extension was replaced. I can no longer find the old extension. Is there any way to relocate it and reinstall perhaps to an older version of Thunderbird? I think the old extension was v. 3.8.0 from an Alexander Bergman.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Dave

Running 64 bit 102.50 in WIN 7 PRO I have two accounts. Thunderbird confuses the user id's of the two accounts such that when sending from account 2 it uses the user id of account 1 and thus fails. I cannot configure the SMTP servers to prevent this, cannot clearly differentiate credential configuration for the default vs non-default SMTP servers

i ve been sing firefox since 2006, but now it is becoming v annoying cuz of the f 10 option.. a user ve to enable the menu bar to avoid shuffling between show and hide the menu bar which makes the page v small, when there is already an option ( alt button ) then why there is another ( f 10 ) button is bound to it? plz remove f 10 as i ve to use this for another purpose.. and do not show the password window until any login page is browsed as we ve to cancel it each time we open firefox and most of the time we do not need it..its extremely annoying .

Hi,

If I'm running a sort of "client-server" network model setup, I was wondering how I can have thunderbird installed on all computers and when a user logs into the machine for the first time, Thunderbird be already configured with incoming servers, accounts, smtp servers, and everything? Maybe a config file I could export from a current setup and have a policy or logon script run it?

I need a fresh new windows user to be able to log in and have thunderbird already configured to them with specialist stmp servers that I'd need to tell it to use (not the ones thunderbird picks up itself) and have passwords already remembered.

Many thanks
