  1. i have htis weird problem sometimes if I press the home page button or the previous page button on my Navigation toolbar a save as dialog button pops up, if I click yes or ok it saves the page in question. Once I had disabled my antivirus temporarily and when I enabled it, firefox started working properly again. But generally the only way around it is to exit the application and start it again.

    make sure your AV is not running when installed
    you may have to change startup for AV then reboot
    check make sure Av service not running
    then re-install firefox
    if Av app is also firewall allow firefox exe in rules
