I do not have the suspect web page saved as a "Favorite". Nothing is showing up on any bug/virus/spyware/...et.al. programs. WHERE is this pita hiding??? `

I installed a new, second printer and made it the default printer. I'm also using the old printer. Firefox doesn't recognize the new default printer and only works with the old one. How can I get Firefox to work with the new printer? I'm using the latest version of FF. Thanks.

I am not sure how I did this, but now when I go to drag a web page lower on the right side slider bar another mini bar shows up. If I accidently hit that I suddenly have two pages up at the same time and I can not get back to where I was without closing the page entirely.

How do I avoid this? I rarely want two pages at one time.

Thanks

I really REALLY loathe the way the address bar works on FF3

When I start typing XYZ in the address bar I want it to come up with autocomplete suggestions for URLs that begin with XYZ such as http://xyz.qwerty.com or http://www.xyzqwerty.com and NOT http://www.qwerty.com/asdfgXYZhjkl/

The worst thing is that it also looks at the title of pages. What use is it for me when I type 'er' in the address bar and it comes up with the URL for a page titled "In Twin Peaks: THE REAL FWWM WOODS AND DEER MEADOW...AND WIND RIVER' because of the ERs in the titles, when the URL of the said page is http://www.intwinpeaks.com/2008/05/real-fwwm-woods.html ?!?!

That is to say to behave like it did on FF2. In fact that's one of the major reasons why I stayed with FF2 until a few wees ago.

The other thing is that you combined the small back and forward arrows into one, which is very inconvenient I see that on IE, not sure whose original idea it was but it certainly isn't making the browser more user friendly.

I wish these were OPTIONAL features, features we can adjust from the settings.

"Invalid username/password combination. If you continue to get this error, try entering your email address as your username."

Obviously it is happening with one of my email addresses/usernames & password combinations of which I know the username for (which I choose not to post here) and I'm not sure where to begin looking for a resolution to this problem.

I would like to know how to access Add-Ons on the other user account on this same computer. As well as how to hide the Add-ons from showing on the bottom bar of the screen but still have access to them

My third question is how to automatically disconnect from Sync once I close Firefox. So that only the person with the master password has access to the saved information.

When I first start Firefox everything is fine. And everything remains fine as long as I don't type into any web page's text boxes. I can type into the address or search bar all day long without any problems.

But, for example, just typing into the edit box to ask this question on this site will result in the problem after I type in over say 150 characters. After that typing ANYWHERE in Firefox will be painfully slow, even the address bar or the search bar. It doesn't seem to matter which site I use to type in text. All cause the problem to occur after typing in enough keystrokes.

Browsing & mouse clicking remains fast -- it's only typing that seems to be affected. In order to recover I have to restart Firefox.

If I look at the Firefox.exe cpu usage in Process Explorer I can see that once the problem occurs, the cpu usage starts spiking every time I type a key. In fact Firefox maxes out one of my dual cores so the cpu is at 50%! It drops down to 0% again once I stop typing.

As mentioned in the subject this is in Safe Mode with all extensions & plugins disabled. I am running on Windows XP SP3 with an old AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ (1.81Ghz) with 2.00GB of RAM.

I think this started to noticeably happen with Firefox 3.6 (it's amazing how long I can browse without typing) but it used to happen occasionally with earlier versions. Now it is annoyingly repeatable.

I have to use "-no-remote -P ForTyping" to start up a separate Firefox session that I just use to type into text boxes so I can restart it at will. I also compose messages in an external editor and just paste them into Firefox to avoid typing as much as possible.

Ever since the new update (3.6.11) My favs & history won't show up in the url bar as I type. Anyone else having this prob or know how to solve? Also, its not a privacy setting issue, ive double checked this. For that matter, when I try to adjust my privacy settings to custom, the setting bounces back to remember all. I don't know if this is an update glitch or an add-on glitch. All I know is the previous 3.6.10. wasn't doing this.

Help if ya can, please and thanks. ;)

Under Tools>Options>Privacy tab, until recently, there was a cookies button that allowed you to type into a list the URL of specific tracking cookies that you wanted to block. If any anti-virus scans found any such cookies, I could add them into the list. That was a great option. It seems that list and that option no longer exists. Why
