    Firefox question about the "tabbed browsing"
    I recently started using Firefox browser, unfortunately, I messed around with customizing it and somehow It does not do the "tabbed browsing" feature.
    I lost it and cannot find where to fix it.
    I did delete the program, the Firefox and reinstalled it hoping it would go back to the default settings, but no, all my changes were still there .

    Hmm... I'm not sure how you managed to do that, but if you delete your Firefox profile directory, your configuration will be erased and Firefox will go back to the default (working) settings.

    This directory will be randomly named, and located in

    $HOME/.mozilla/firefox (linux)


    %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ (windows NT/2000/XP)
    (%AppData% is usually C:\Documents and Settings\[Your user name]\Application Data


    C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ (windows 9x/ME)

    Hello fellow FF user
    Some times in ones life we have to admit defeat to the tabbed browser god,
    But not today.

    Are you saying that when you were done with a tab you just closed it right or did you open a web page then you wanted to see another page and you opened a new tab to vew said web page right?

    You see tabs are used for viewing other pages while keeping the page you started with, and when you turn off your PC or what ever god you worship, the tabs go bie bie they are not stored in memory.

    Try this right click on any link you see... how about the top right hand corner of this page... your see "ads by goooooooooogle"? Right click and pick "open link in new tab" this will make the page jump and if you look next to "aske me for help desk - ?" tab you should see "ads by google" tab right next to it on the 3rd or 4th tab down form the top of your screen.

    You see the tab you picked sometime won't appear unless we click on it and if your still having troubl up grade to FF 1.0 its far superior to the others and some security issuse have been addressed.

    Well lots of luck
    I hope I didn't insult your ineligence.

    MAGIKPOO... Smells GREAT!
