When I run Firefox I find that the "plugin-container.exe *32" is a drain on resources for my computer. Is there a way to disable this? I understand that its purpose is to help if Firefox crashes but because my Firefox hardly ever crashes I just feel it's a drain on my system resources (11,820K of RAM).

Like many people I suck at typing. For some reason, a certain accidental keystroke combo makes me go back the to the previous page, thereby losing everything I typed, such as form data or forum comments. This happens randomly and I NEVER use keyboard shortcuts while browsing because I always use the mouse except when typing. I really, really want to disable all keyboard shortcuts but there is no option to do this. What do I do? Go back to Exploder? I hope not!

A few times a week

I noticed it a few weeks ago. When I just search in the address bar as I normally do Firefox has begun using Bing search as oppose to Googles "I'm Feeling Lucky". This is very frustrating, as Google is far superior to Bing.

This only seems to happen however when I search one word in the address bar. If I search 2 or more words, it continues to use Google.

I have searched for solution to this already and nothing seems to work. I don't have any Bing/Microsoft search bars installed. I have no search extensions from Microsoft. And there are no updates on my computer that have been recommned to be removed on other forums.

Please get my Firefox back to normal!

Orbit allows you to save items while they are streaming. Normally when you begin streaming orbit will show a 1 at the top. By clicking on the 1 you can then click download and it will begin the download. The new forefox will not load the toolbar at all. Please help

There is a cursor which flashes in the HTML in pages, in parts where it's not an input field, it's there for people with reading/accessability issues, but I don't know how to disable it? It causes major problems on, for example a long Facebook page, when you press an arrow key instead of scrolling the page it goes all the way to where the cursor is?

Want to turn this off: This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to login.facebook.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Technical Details

login.facebook.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate will not be valid until 7/23/2009 8:03 AM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)

My bookmarks show a lot of favicons, but not all. Those added later do when I open them, but then the favicons again disappear from the bookmarks list. Is, maybe, some cache for them full? How can I in that case increase the cache size? I have set Firefox to delete history at turn off. Maybe I have to allow history to store favicons and then again set it to delete history?

I find mouseover "info links" that pop up these little information windows to be extremely irritating. Some pages are so densely populated with these things that moving my mouse will invariably pop unwanted stuff. I have tried addblock, and it generally works to filter commercial content, but really, I am not out to eliminate the adds, I just want to take control of MY browsing experience, and get my blood pressure under better control. I read a lot of articles on academic sites and such, where terms and definitions are often hyperlinked, and the mouseover popups can make reading tedious.

Is there some about:config setting or settings file that I can tweak to control this insane behavior? Maybe I am wrong, but in addition to the annoyance, I view mouseover popups as potential automatic malware launchers, and do not appreciate this unsolicited behavior whilst browsing.

There seems to be a conspiracy of silence on this topic - google links on the topic seem to lead to deleted posts. IMO, this does not seem to be an unreasonable thing to ask from a customer perspective.
