I used to be able to refresh a page by hitting the F5 key. That does not seem to work anymore. Is there a keyboard shortcut for refresh, or can I create one?

I used to be able to refresh a page by hitting the F5 key. With 4.0.1, that does not seem to work. Is there a different keyboard shortcut, or can I create one?

When using my eprint function (e-mailing attachments to my printer through gmail), I have to send the attachment without subject or text in body to prevent it printing extra pages. Gmail automatically asks me "Send message without text in body?" and "Send message without a subject?" which was getting annoying. SO, I clicked the checkbox marked "Prevent this site from creating any more dialogs," hoping that would stop the pop-ups.

Now, the pop-ups don't appear, but gmail simply doesn't send the message, so I get stuck unless I enter a subject and body text (which is a pain and wastes paper by printing an extra page). I can't figure out how to 'undo' what I did in either Firefox or Gmail. I'm using version 4.0.1.

Help???

I noticed that my search bar was changed to Yahoo instead of Google, and reset it. Also had entered a couple of sho.rt/urls and came upon a redirect to search.yahoo.com.

A few days ago I installed a freeware that loaded a program into my Windows XP startup to change my MSIE home page or search preferences to Yahoo from Live, and IE alerted me and I blocked the change. Then to get rid of the bootup notice that a program has attempted to change things and was blocked, I ran Spybot Search & Destroy and removed the offender from the start sequence.

There are Microsoft and third-party ways to lock-down MSIE, and I am looking for a way to do this in Firefox.4.

Addendum: DOWNLOADED IOBit SMART DEFRAG 2 and it loaded that starter to change MSIE settings, and gave Firefox two new toolbars: IOBit Toolbar 4.4 and Widgi Toolbae Platform 4.4. They will be disabled as soon as I send this. And I will toss IOBit Smart Defrag too. I discovered all of this when I pasted troubleshoot info below.

Running XP/SP 3, with FF 4.0.1. Flash v 11 is not supported, so I downloaded and installed Flash 10.3 from Adobe archive. Installation appears successful, Control Panel sees it, but it does not show up in FF. Trying to install the exe file from the plugins window does not work - I get a 'file is corrupt' message. Restarting the computer did not help. Thanks

In FF4, the remember password box pops up from the left of the address bar. However, when I press 'remember password' the button seems to be locked and nothing happens. I've checked the password area in the control panel and it's empty. I've checked the files - key3.db and signons.sqlite - they seem to have data in them. I've disabled all plugins and addons, but still doens't help.

Can you please advise how to resolve this? Thanks

Firefox tells me that a site has an invalid security certificate, which I know. It asks if I want to Add an Exception and I click to add one. It pops up the Add Security Exception window and that window tells me that this site has a valid certificate and there is no need to add an exception; but I DO need to add an exception and it won't do it for me. Why? I am working in a secure test lab and use Firefox to login to our systems under test. Each time we change or add hardware we must add exceptions to login to a system. I have done this for years with Firefox but now Firefox 4 seems confused. We now need to use EI, which I would rather not.
