Internet link and browser problem firefox and internet explorer

My internet browsers have been acting up.

Using Firefox and Internet Explorer; when i click a link it automatically opens it in a new tab, also often it goes to a website that i have not clicked. I have tried to uninstall Firefox but am unable to for some odd reason. I have ran many virus and spyware checks to no avail.

Your help would be much appreciated.

You can't force a link to open in a present window, if a link instructs a browser to open it in a new tab/window. (that is the case with most of the download links, and more of them.)
If You want to open it in a new window instead of a tab, go to Tools, Options, go to Tabs, and in the firs row, select in a new window instead of in a new tab.

Stopping browsing history


Step 1:
Stop Web History on Internet Explorer b> Every time you visit a website, the web address, date and time of your visit is recorded in your Web browser history. The length of time this information is saved varies depending on what browser is used. If privacy is a concern, popular browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer offer enhanced privacy features that allow you to prevent your browser history from being stored.

Update your Web browser to the latest version of the product. Browser updates often include important security patches. Automatically clear your browser history each time you exit. In Firefox, this option is located under "Tools" and "Options." Select the "Privacy" tab and check the box marked "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox." If you're using Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" and "Internet Options" and check "Delete browsing history on exit." Use private browsing if your browser supports it. Private browsing prevents your browser from storing any information about your browsing history, including cookies, temporary Internet files and history. Pressing CTRL+Shift+P on your keyboard will activate private browsing mode in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. It can also be accessed in Firefox by clicking "Tools" and selecting "Start Private Browsing," and in Internet Explorer by clicking "Safety" and selecting "InPrivate Browsing." Private browsing must be activated each time you open your browser.

I logged into facebook and it will not let me chat because it says that i have to upgrade my browser to internet explorer 9 how do i dothat


You can download the latest Internet Explorer from Microsoft's website.(http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home)

You can only upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 unless you have Windows 7 as your operating system.
Personally, I would suggest using a different browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Both of these browsers are more secure and faster than Internet Explorer and should allow you to chat on Facebook. Here are the respective links:
Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/
Chrome: http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/landing_chrome.html?hl=en
I hope this helps!

When I try to login facebook my computer now says internet explorer cant display this page, why? and how can this be corrected


This may or may not work, but try https:// instead of http://. If you look at the address bar at the top of internet explorer you should see it. Another thing to try is either updating internet explorer, or using a different web browser. Personally I like using the Chrome web browser but there are other excellent options like Firefox. Firefox is a little more convenient. If neither using https://, updating your browser, or downloading a new one works, than depending on the network you are using Facebook might be being blocked. (if you are at a school or at work). I hope this helps!

Latest Internet Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx If you have windows 7 than you do not need that link up there. Chrome browser: http://www.google.com/chrome/intl/en/landing_chrome.html?hl=en Firefox browser: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

Internet exploer can find the internet i'm after but when i try to log on it has the follwoing error message: internet explorer can not display the web page. can you help me


Hi there,

You should bee able to see all the internet pages with internet explorer 7.

Try to use this browser instead to log in and see if you can instead. Firefox portable. You simply compy the content to a folder of your wish and find the folder and press on firefox file. If you do not wish to keep the browser you simply delete the folder.
OR you can also use the stable version of firefox, both links are provided here:

Firefox portable:
http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

Firefox (stable):
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html

IF it is working you need to reinstall your Internet Explorer, I suggest you use windows update to upgrade to Internet explorer 8, you find windows update many places, one place it is, is in internet explorer 7 under the menu tools (just next to help).

Hope that helps
IF NOT then return here
Have a nice Sunday

When I try to open internet explorer an error box pops up saying There is a problem with internet explorer and this has to close.


Internet Explorer would sometimes act like this when you have multiple toolbars or addons installed. Try this:

- Go to the control panel
- Go to internet options
- Go to the programs tab and click on manage addons
- Disable all unnecessary addons

This must work

Internet Explorer wont let me get on facebook


Try using a different browser, it's a pain to switch from a browser you've been using for a while, but since IE is known as one of the slowest browsers, it might be a relief. Try Safari, Firefox or Chrome.
Hope this helps!

Every time I try to access internet explorer, it closes.


Stop using Internet Explorer. It is not a safe or reliable browser to begin with. See this article.

Here are the steps:
  1. 1. Download and install Firefox. It is an amazing browser and is surprisingly light weight and safe. Download here.
  2. When Firefox asks you if you want it to be your default browser select "YES".
  3. Delete the shortcuts on your desktop to Internet Explorer and start using FireFox!
You are done!
