For example, if I want to sign into gmail, it asks for the username. As soon as I type in the first letter, it gives me a selection which it stored. Once I made a mistake and typed my password in there which also begins with the same letter. How do I clear the list? Actually, how can I set Firefox so that it doesn't automatically store that information.

For the past month, maybe longer, Firefox has been extremely slow. The videos are also delayed. I have used firefox for many years and now I am disappointed with this browser. I cleared the cache and cookies, twice within a week. No improvement. I've been using Safari for my videos, but all my bookmarks are on firefox. How can we fix this problem? Whats going on ??

I updated Firefox on my daughter's account, which is in French, then went back to my own account, which is in English on the same Mac OS X Version 10.5.8 computer, and opened Firefox. It had updated there as well, but in French, and it won't go back to English. I even deleted French as an option in the Preferences-Contents-Languages option page, and restarted the computer. Still loads in French. My kids know French, but I don't, so this is a pain in the butt. How do I fix this?

I have an Intel Mac using OS 10.5.8, and Firefox v3.5.17. It works fine and I do not want to change as I like Firefox "exactly" the way it is! That said, I will be forced to update soon I'm very afraid. In looking at and trying to update to the latest version, many conflicts have come up. The update consistently brings me to the wrong version for my OS. So, what version will be the latest that will absolutely work for OS 10.5.8? WHY do I find that 4.0X is best then, 16.0!! is the correct one?

   Why are the versions so vastly separated??  
   Nothing makes sense. Please help before I convert to Chrome permanently! 

Thank you.
