  • Why the function "move to new window" that I used to use does not work when I right click on the tab more?

    It was when I right click on the tab in Firefox I could use the option 'Move to the new window'. Now when I go down to this option, it seems it will work, but nothing happens. The other day I changed some options in Firefox, but I don't remember changing anything that sounded as if it would have this effect, and now I can't find all the options that seem to fix. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hello Beorn, probably the problem is an extension that is not working properly. Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most of the modules.

    (If you use it, switch to the default theme).

    • You can open Firefox 4.0 + in Safe Mode holding the key SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • Or open the Help menu and click on the restart with the disabled... modules menu item while Firefox is running.

    Once you get the pop-up, simply select "" boot 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. To do this, please follow article Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems .

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

    When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. It might help others who have the same problem.

    Thank you

    Hi DickCookVS

    If the offline files option is disabled, you will need to enable it, if you want to work with files offline to a network folder.

    a. open offline files by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type offline filesand then in the list of results, click manage offline files.

    b. on the general tab, click enable offline files.

    You will need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

  • That is why when I right click on the Firefox icon I get a purple flag with "new private window? No there is no way to remove this item?

    I'm a prisoner of the "new private window? Is it OK if I don't want that? God is going to punish me? It certainly looks that way.

Someone tried to help her by suggesting new privacy settings. So I lost most of my desktop shortcuts but not the private window! I'll be back most of the shortcuts, but I'm still stuck with the purple flag company. I have a background of tech and only for this reason that I try to keep things simple. It is vital that, how did you before? Any help or clarification will be appreciated. Thanks for listening.
