In any webpage on any tab: Cmd-d or click star twice. The Edit Bookmark dialog appears, with the Name field highlighted. My cursor doesn't change when placed over the highlighted Name field. If I click or double-click anyway, nothing changes. If I press Delete, the field contents are erased and I can type something in. The mouse still can't be used to move the cursor or highlight any characters in the field. I don't think I had this problem before 3.6.8.

Almost every time I quit Firefox, it seems to close down, then it pops open again after about 60 seconds. If I quit the second time, it closes as normal. I checked to make sure it doesn't happen because the next program I am using is opening it to display some connected content. I also checked to make sure I don't have two instances of it open or something like that.

When I am logging in to my email, Firefox offers multiple suggestions for my user name as soon as I start typing. One of the options it offers combines my user name and password, which is a real security issue for me. I've tried clearing cookies (the email account is through Cavalier Telephone, which is powered by Google), but that doesn't change anything. this also happens when I type in the subject of my email. I hate autosuggest features and want to get rid of it entirely. How do I do this?

Often, when I'm trying to close a tab, I get a drop-down asking if I really want to close it. Really Annoying.

Usually the tab is a site that is trying to advertise, or get me to fill out some form, etc. It's very irritating that these sites have the ability to stop me from closi… (read more)

Usually the tab is a site that is trying to advertise, or get me to fill out some form, etc.

It's very irritating that these sites have the ability to stop me from closing them immediately. Most of them carry data mining components, so the longer they stay open, the more likely they are doing something on my computer -- it seems to me that Firefox (which I prefer as a browser in every other way), by allowing the drop-down is complicit in their activities.

I am running on a Mac OSX 10.6.4. After updating Firefox to 3.6.10, a few add-on disappeared. Specifically, Delicious, 1Password, Stumble ON and Buckts. I looked for updates and none were available. I've run through the view menu and preferences but can't find an option to restore these functions. Do all these add-ons need to be updated to be compatible with 3.6.10 or is there something in the update that wiped out these views.

First website used first use of FF 3.6.1: 1. My password didn't work to open my existing account on a website. 2. I called the site's customer service and changed password. 3. It would only open in new window. Each time I wanted to go to my account I had to open new window. 4. If I go to page 2 of my account, I have to reenter login info. If I go to another page on the site, I have to reenter login info. I have never had to do these things before, unless it had been a day or two since I last opened my account. Anyone else with this problem? Any suggestions to fix it at my end? Will FoxFire fix it at their end?

Since I use this site frequently, I have just begun using another browser and might have to stop using FF after being longtime user.
