After the last update to 3.6.6, I disabled plugin-container per the instructions given on the forum, and my RAM problems went away. However, after the automatic update to 3.6.8, the memory problems came back, with memory usage going up to 92%. I downgraded to 3.6.4, and turned plugin-container off again; while memory usage is currently at 84%, it is not as low as it was before the upgrade to 3.6.8. (79-80%) (There is very little difference in the websites being opened on the various tabs.)

I want IE to be my default browser on my WinXP PC, but there are certain sites I prefer in Firefox, so want shortcuts for those on my desktop. But every time I drag the icon from firefox to the desktop, the shortcut changes to be for IE, and there doesn't seem to be anything I can change manually in properties to force the shortcut to open with Firefox.

Issue

Firefox is having problems with certain web sites

Description

FYI, (thanks to all developers)

I rarely go to porn sites but the popunder-windows they generate caused the plugin-container.exe to use 40% of cpus (2 cpu). This is after I had closed all tabs and left my computer unattended. This popunder-window might have very-very-unusually slipped my attention due to my errand.

Thanks again

Firefox 3.6.4 on Centos 5.5. If i put a keyword in the address bar rather than a URL then i am always re-directed to "searchportal.information.com". I have uninstalled Firefox and manually removed all files/directories i can find. After re-install the problem is still there. If i disable dns and put a keyword such as "sourceforge" then the status bar shows "Looking up searchportal.information.com". There is no reference to this URL in about:config and changing keyword.URL has no effect. I run Firefox on Fedora, XP and Vista without this problem. What is going on?

I receive the following update alert:

Update Available

A security and stability update for Firefox is available:

Firefox 3.6.6

It is strongly recommended that you apply this update for Firefox as soon as possible


I click on the UPDATE Firefox box and it goes thru the typical routine, finally telling me the installation will be completed when I restart Firefox. I restart Firefox BUT I do not have 3.6.6 installed. I still have 3.6.4 per "About Mozilla Firefox" AND it still asks me everyday if I want to update.

I did download 3.6.6 directly but the same thing has happened.

I have an iMac and am running OS 10.5.8.

Please help!  ;) Thanks

When opening attachments in e-mail Firefox is unable to handle files with white space in the name. This is not the same as the white space file name truncation problem documented on this site (where file names with white space are truncated on saving.) The issue is that the browser will prompt to allow the file to be saved, but it will not prompt to open the file as an option. If I rename the file to remove white space then I do receive the "Open with..." dialog box. I verified that Firefox 2 did not have this problem and I can open attachments with white space in the file names just fine using that version of the browser (2.0.0.20).

So, recently the title bar in Firefox 3.6.4 looks different in my Windows 7, and has an extra button for switching windows between multiple monitors. It kinda looks like Vista, I think. This change seems to come and go, and it only is there in one of the several Firefox windows I have open... the rest are normal. Also, when it gets bogged down it reverts, and when it catches up, the new look returns... I want to make sure this has to do with an update or something, and not malware, because it's pretty weird and the inconsistency is alarming.

This happened

I've did a force quit weeks ago and restarted. The restore tab with all its choices showed in the browser as it should. I wanted the option to go back and open the previously restored ones but haven't yet, and have just been browsing in new tabs. I accidentally quit Firefox and when I restarted nothing is restorable. Is there any way to restore that tab with all my past history, or is it permanently overwritten by a new session history? Thanks, Dan
