black dialogue box keeps popping up under address bar asking me if I want mozilla.org to remember my site password. Very irritating, how do I disable this feature? Comes up over and over and over and over.......... DUMB!!!!! I do not want Mozilla to remember my passwords to other sites. That is why they are passwords.

BTW, your spell checker does not recognize Mozilla. Weird.

I updated Firefox, and immediately afterward, my address bar seemed to become unresponsive. If I want to navigate to any website, I have to go to my homepage and Google it. I tried restarting, and nothing changed. (I am not very computer literate, so that is about the extent of my troubleshooting abilities.)

After clicking on "checkout", amazon.com asks me to login. After that, I get a blank screen. This happens with version 9 and 10 of Firefox. If I use version 8, then everything works as expected. Logging in to my amazon.com account from any other page also works as expected in any version of Firefox. But to checkout you always have to login again, and the problem still happens.

Was having script errors using IE8. SmugMug recommended I try Firefox. The script errors have stopped, but is very slow to respond to clicks compared to IE8.

On a screen that has pick lists. In IE8 they open fully imediatley. But in Firefox the response is very slow and the pick lists open almost in a jerky fashion.

Also when starting Firefox for the first time I was offered and accepted the option to import IE's bookmarks and such. I let it run for 20 min. then a script error dialog box came up:

Warning: Unresponsive script A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. Script:resource:///components/nsPlacesExpiration.js:632

I elected to Stop it. It importing continued until Firefox came up. But guess what; no IE Bookmarks were imported. I have a barebones, no addons Firefox running. And like I said, it is very, very slow.

I have the latest flash plug-in installed from adobe's website.

Flash isn't working. It's not showing up on my list of installed plug-ins.

Checking all my plug-ins for updates, firefox tells me "For your safety, Firefox has disabled your outdated version of Flash. Please upgrade to the latest version."

Looking at my .mozilla/firefox/<snip>/pluginreg.datfile, there is an entry for it: [INVALID] /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so:$ 1320112563000:$

This plug-in works fine under 3.6.26.

I have tried removing that line from the file, uninstalled and reinstalling the rpm, but I get the exact same results every time
