left-click on the icon of firefox in the taskbar displays a list of all the tabs. How to open just to the last tab?

I use the tab grouping feature a lot. It means that I have 100s of tabs open at any time.

The problem: once a switch between tab groups, the Firefox icon in the task bar changes in what looks like multiple echoes of the Firefox icon. I guess this is supposed to represent several groups of tabs.

Before the 20th of Firefox might click on the Firefox icon in the taskbar, and would come to the top and show the last tab, I worked on Firefox.

Since Firefox 20 a left click on the Firefox icon in the task bar now displays a list of the 28 tab + seemingly random tabs. Many of them said only: "Mozilla Firefox" instead of the site represented by this tab (because the tab has not been accessed recently).

To open Firefox to the last tab, that I worked on is now a real chore. I now have to choose one of these tabs 28 + (which is 99% of the time the tab bad), then switch to the Group of the appropriate tab and then find the tab I've worked on. It usually takes 5-10 clicks to get back to where I was before I've minimized Firefox, or before that Firefox has lost focus. (In the past I could simply click on the Firefox in the taskbar, and restored Firefox icon where I left last.)

How can I disable the list that is displayed when a left click or move the mouse over the Firefox icon in the taskbar? I would like the ability to minimize/restore Firefox by clicking on the Firefox icon in the taskbar, as it was in the past, do not get a choice of random tabs.

I think that I thought about it. Under OPTIONS > OPTIONS > TAB, uncheck the box for "Show glimpses of tab in the Windows task bar" and then click OK

  • Whenever I have press and hold to my left click on the mouse button, it automatically highlights everything from this point to the top of the page

    Whenever I press and my left click without releasing, it atomically highlights everything from this point to the top of the page. Also, note if I'm now left click on the scroll bar, it goes back to the original location, even when I try to drag it upwards or downwards.

    Open internet Explorer and the problem does not occur there.

    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that disables certain parameters, disables most Add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • In Firefox 29,0 and above, click on the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    • In previous versions of Firefox, click on the Firefox button in the upper left of the Firefox window and click help (or click on help in the Menu bar, if you do not have a Firefox button) and click on restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Mode safe mode as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. Please follow the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

  • Left click of the mouse does not respond in the office and I could see 2 together (Picture) Office

    Everything works well today that the left click of the mouse is not responding on the desktop (icons does not meet the double click). Right click works ok, and left click works well on programs and in the taskbar.

    Weird things here, it's that I can see two desktop at the same time.

    Can someone help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    I got disabling the system restore, so I can't go back to a good version.

    Turn off the system restore makes things much more difficult. Your problem is probably due to an inappropriate registry setting. You can restore your registry files manually to a previous point through the steps described below. The process is complex and requires some careful typing. Ask a computer-savvy friend to help you if you lack experience in this field. You may reset your password to an earlier value.

    Check the date of the file C:\Windows\System32\config\regback\System. It precedes the date when you became aware of your problem? If so, follow these steps:

    1. keep tapping F8 during the first phase of startup.

    2. Select repair in the menu that looks like this.

    3 log in as administrator if you are prompted.

    4. Select repair when prompted.

    5. Select the command line in the menu that looks like this.

    6. identify the correct drive letter for your Windows installation. It could be one drive other than c, but it will not X:. You do this by typing commands
    DIR C:\Win*
    Dir D:\Win*
    dir E:\Win*
    until you find the Windows folder.
    I'll call this "Q:" drive
    7 type these commands exactly:
    CD /d Q:\windows\System32\config
    xcopy *. * Q:\MyRegBack\
    CD RegBack
    8 type these commands:
    copy software / y...
    /y copy system...
    /y copy Sam...
    (the two points are part of each order)
    10. restart normally. If things don't work then you can go back by copying files from the original register of Q:\MyRegBack to Q:\Windows\System32\config.

  • left click of the mouse program

    I have a button on the Panel before the VI. I can set the key Focus on true property node.

    Then, I want to do a left click of the mouse.

    Apparently this can be done by calling user32.dll.

    Is there a better way?

    Is it possible to help generate the user event without having to resort to calling the Windows API?

  • Holding the drawing rectangle left click on the screen - what is it?

    On my desk and some Web pages, I can press the left mouse button, drag it, and he draws a rectangle - as it is to select a field. Release the mouse button the rectangle disappeared and wondering what it was all about. The area inside the rectangle is not highlighted in some way. However, when there is a picture (photo) on the page, SOMETIMES (without moving the mouse), the left click highlights the image in blue degraded even if the pointer is not on the image. It's like a painting - where the rectangle selects an area to be edited, only this doesn't give any options or menus to consider after the rectangle has been established - and then disappears with the release of the button. What is c?


    This design, and you don't have to worry about this. It's normal.

    When we have a left-click on the desktop or any empty space (white) away from all the folders and drag it will show you a rectangle, also an area shaded inside the rectangle will appear.

    The function of left click drag is to select so it continue to look the same.

    It will be useful.

    Original title: left click not working not not on HP laptop

    On my HP Elitebook 2760p running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, left click on the touchpad button has stopped working.  The right click works, the works of pad, (scrolling and click on) it's just the left click.  It started after the execution of the new update of adobe.

  • I keep running the update of firefox, but next time I click on my icon of firefox, it opens an older version and asks me to update. What is going on?

    I downloaded and ran the update of Firefox. It said it was successful and then the homepage etc came. However, after I had closed and starts again the 'old' version came when I clicked on the icon of Firefox with the usual comment I have an old version and that you need to update. I tried this three times with the same result. I have a laptop Compaq Presario 2200.

    What I am doing wrong?

    If you use the www.google.com/firefox as homepage site that previous versions of Firefox 3 use as homepage you can ignore the message about not using the latest version of Firefox on this page.

    Google seems to keep this page.

    The text on the implementation of the latest version of Firefox is in the code of the www.google.com/firefox site that previous versions of Firefox 3 use as homepage and it seems that Google is no longer do not update this page.

    The current versions of Firefox 4 + is no longer use this website from Google as home page, but use the build-in on: home page as the home page.

    Google assumes that you are using an older version of Firefox if you still visit this site, and warns you that you are using an older version of Firefox and invites you to update.

    You can use a different page than the homepage as subject: House or www.google.com or www.google.com/ig (iGoogle).

  • left click in the web browser options are disabled in the latest version

    In all previous versions of firefox, I had no problem in the drop-down list when a left click to open a link in a new tab or save the highlighted text or even to save an image on my disk. But now with the last update (20.0.1) I came across something that bothers me by the length of the drop-down list (too long, too much stuff on it) and half the options are disabled, making it harder for me to surf the web that I used to do. I took a screenshot of my question. I hope this will help. In addition, that my OS is windows 7. http://www.darkworlds.se/images/other/firefx20bug.jpg

    It is a problem to have an out-of-date version of Firebug, most likely you have disabled the automatic update of the addons.

    The best way to fix it is to go to tools-> Addons and then clicking the wheel upwards button near the search box. From there you choose ' Check for Updates ' and unless you need specific versions of an add-on, choose "automatically updated addons ' while you there.

    You will probably need to update Firebug twice, because it updates a version obsolete and from there to the newest one.

    It's the solution, I came on as I had the same exact problem, I tried to create a new profile and tastes.
