Good day!

In trying to use the app tab feature, I notice that the app tab does not re-appear after closing and then re-opening Firefox. I am using Firefox 5.0.1 on a Mac (latest operating system). I am able to easily create the app tab, but it does not save - the next time I open Firefox, the app tab is no longer there. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

In my preferences, I have the following, among others: Enabled - "tell web site I do not want to be tracked." Enabled - "clear history when Firefox closes." Cookies are only kept until Firefox closes. Enabled - "block pop-up windows" Enabled - "enable JavaScript"

If other information is needed, please advise.

Thanks for you assistance. I've been using Firefox since it first came out. This is my first question.

Regards, Ray T.

Problem typing address in location bar. I start to type "mail" and FF suggests "http..." and doesn't erase the leading "h" when I continue typing.

Something new & annoying just start happening with Firefox 5.0 (and continues with 5.01, Mac OS). I want to go to a frequently used location, mail.yahoo.com, so it's in my History. I start to type "m" for "mail" and instead Firefox suggests "Switch to Tab: http://www.mysqueezebox.com/player/playerControl" (which *is* a currently in-use tab) and (probably critically) the initial "h" is NOT highlighted, but the rest of the address is. So when I keep typing, I get "hail" instead of "mail." If I backspace and start over it just happens again. It won't let me simply type "mail"! Any suggestions? Thanks, ...Chuck

I have a real problem signing in to various websites. I have posted 3 questions and not received a response. i have tried getting help from Live chat. As i live in Australia, i used a time zone converter, which told me that b/n 7-9am EST is equivalent to 2-4pm PT. I have tried connecting during this time and it still says "We're closed" I have no other way of solving this problem. Please let me know if I have the time zones incorrect or is there another way i can speak to someone directly. Many thanks!

I have 1Password for Mac and recently updated to Firefox5 for Mac and cannot locate 1Password in Plug-ins or extensions....How can I add this vital plug-in to FireFox5 OR how can I roll back things and re-install FireFox4?

I am running FireFox5 on a 2008 (Santa Rosa) MacBook Pro. OSX 10.5 Leopard I have the current version of 1Password v.3.5.13 (FireFox5-friendly) I am running FireFox5 for Mac. I have the Add-on Compatibility Reporter 0.8.5 (which, by the way is reading "Compatibility Problems" with an orange exclamation mark) My Extensions tab shows 1Password for FireFox3 & FireFox4& Add-on Compatibility Reporter, but no 1Password for FireFox5. (I can email a screenshot of this if you like, let me know.) Any ideas? I'd really rather use FireFox than Safari, but if it's a no go, (no compatibility, no rool-back) I'll be forced to dump FireFOx and use Safari (only my choice of last resort.)

I'm getting a not-quite crash in which I lose ability to interact with the window at all. Is there any way to fix the problem itself? All I can do is an inconvenient "fix" in which I open a new window, and it works in the second window for some reason.

I'm experiencing a not-quite-crash every time I attempt to open firefox on my new computer. What happens is that the menu bar (which I prefer to have visible instead of that orange single-button menu) has all the letters on it turn gray, and I lose my ability to click anywhere on the page, including to close it. If I attempt to close the page via the taskbar it doesn't let me. It does, however, let me open new windows via the taskbar which don't have the same problem, which allows for an easy-but-inconvenient fix. I've tried it out and it does not have the same problem in Safe Mode. As a result of not being a "true" crash I can't give a crash ID, so you won't be able to trace it that way, sorry.
