I don't call it automatic (I really would be disturbed if links did open on their own) but right clicking on an active link should give you the option of 'Copy Shortcut.' Left-clicking on that copies the URL to the clipboard.
I prefer to open links in separate tabs instead of losing the site I am viewing.
You can then in turn, paste it into the address bar.
This avoids the necessity of manually marking and copying at least.

To disable all of Firefoxs add-ons, you have to open the browser in its Safe Mode by clicking Start > All Programs > Mozilla Firefox > Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)
If that won't work, then you will just gonna have to uninstall Firefox then download and install a fresh Firefox from Mozilla.

Firefox will not let me install adobe flash player .. I get error message after error message


Fire fox should have nothing to do with it. You could uninstall fire fox, install your flash player and then reinstall firefox. A couple of reasons for this problem could be, one, the flash player is from a dodgy site and fire fox is at odds with it, or the second is you have not got the latest version of fire fox. The only thing that should be at odds with the flash player, if there was something wrong is your operating system, not your web browser.
