When I watch videos on you tube they play fine. but, when I minimize the window, the video overlays on whatever was behind it. This includes the desktop and all other programs.

The only way I can get it to disappear is to close the browser. This started happening with the last minor update of Firefox.

Any help.

I'm using Google's DoubleClick for Publishers to track clicks-throughs on outbound text links. I have text ads and banner ads on my site.

(DoubleClick for Publishers is here: https://www.google.com/dfp/info/welcome.html)

I made a successful text ad with a website text link in DoubleClick for Publishers. The text ad shows in IE and Chrome but does not show in FireFox 3.6.15.

To see problem go to: http://www.helicopterlinks.com. See the three columns of helicopter companies listed on this page.

The very upper left-hand corner of the three columns is blank, in FireFox 3.6.15. This is where the DFP tracking text ad is and the ad is not showing. The text ad shows in IE and Chrome.

The ad works using JavaScript. I just updated my JavaScript on my computer and the ad still does not work.

This is a serious problem. According to my Google Analytics account, From January 1, 2010 - March 5, 2011, 24.03% of people visiting my site are using FireFox.

If some one will please email me with updates, I'd appreciate it.

When Firefox 4 is uninstalled, it will leave behind the jumplist task items: - Open new tab - Open new window - Start private browsing

When after that Firefox 3 is installed, the jumplist items are still displayed but they should not exist anymore. Since Firefox 3 does not have jumplist items, this causes a lot of problems with Windows 7.

The jumplist items will still appear in the start menu. Also when Firefox is pinned to taskbar and launched from desktop or start menu, the pinned icon will not be used and another icon will be place on the taskbar.

The jumplist items are left somewhere inside user account settings (registry or appdata) and that's probably why the uninstaller fails to remove them.

To reproduce the problem:

  1. Install Firefox 4
  2. Open Firefox after installing
  3. Uninstall Firefox 4
  4. Install Firefox 3
  5. Pin Firefox to taskbar from desktop but not from the taskbar's opened Firefox window item.
  6. Close all Firefox windows.
  7. Right click on Firefox icon on taskbar and see that there are no jumplist task items.
  8. Open Firefox from desktop and see that the pinned icon is not used and the used taskbar item will show the jumplist task items.
  9. Also if Firefox is pinned to start menu, it will show jumplist tasks in start menu.

If possible I would appreaciate help with removing the jumplist task items.

I have multiple google accounts. I have been able to save a username/password combo (automatic prompt) for two of them, but have not been able to get Firefox to prompt me to save username/password for additional accounts. I've checked everything I could think of -- site exceptions in the "options" menu, clearing the saved passwords list and starting over, reinstalling the browser -- but can't seem to fix the problem. Any idea why it would save username/password for some accounts but not others? Thx

In the previous versions of Firefox when I began to enter my username, it would automatically complete the name or show a box with previously used usernames from which I could select the one I wanted to use. I can no longer do this?? This was a feature I used regularly since usernames are sometimes long.

I can get Firefox to remember usernames AND passwords, but not usernames alone. I do not want my passwords remembered.
