There are just so many people complaining about Firefox 4 - all with the same basic problem - Firefox 4 consumes far-too much memory and appears to increase memory usage over time.

So far I have heard NOTHING from Mozilla regarding this problem.

Have Mozilla identified the problem? Is there a work around? When will there be a permanent fix?

After running firefox a long time, i close it. But it appeared that it was still opened using a large part of memory.

I kill firefox, then reopen it, and 4 windows open with blank pages on the website infomoneyservice.com.

It appears these pages were opened before, but in an hidden way, and they don't show in history.

It happened to me 5 or 6 times since 1 week before i wa able to reproduce some symptoms in a systematic way.

I think this problem is also related to some interceptions of google results.

URL of affected sites

V 12 Firfox creates 1,000nds of .TMF in temp folder never deletes them

Using V12 Firefox with MS windows 2000 Pro Unknown to me is Firefox makes as many as 2 .TMF ( not .tmP) per minute and only a check of hard drive found over 15,000 .TMFs in a temp directory sucking up over 900 MEG bytes of hard drive !

Shutdown of laptop, reboot, etc or using MS to clean unused files, nothing deletes these .TMP other then me now going to temp directory and deleting them

With my business I am on internet like 14 hours day, 7 days a week so Firefox is used most of the time

I have found no setting in Firefox including cache settings but know no other program is doing this and monitoring temp directory while using Firefox I can see these .TMF files being made/saved about 22 to 70 K bytes in length.

Also why is Firefox not supporting MS windows 200 pro for newer version to V 12 I have now to be installed ?

Hello to everybody :o)

several websites, i.e. YouTube, Facebook and Google, detect the actual version of Firefox despite the fact I set a different version number (more recent) by means of the "User Agent Switcher" plugin.

So my question is twofold:

1) how can I change the "fingerprint" of my Firefox effectively, in order to make *any* website recognize the version number which I set (and not the real one)?

2) how those websites do detect the ACTUAL identity of a given browser, despite the changes to the User Agent string that one may have made by means of a switcher?

Thank you in advance to all you folks!

When importing IE favorites to Firefox bookmarks I would like them to mix & mingle - not come in as an added folder in the drop down bookmark list. With IE you are able to go to Favorites folder in 'C:/documents and settings/user profile/favorites and directly edit. Can't seem to do that with Firefox's 'Profile' file.

After installing Firefox 11, whenever the computer awakens from sleep mode, and new tabs created do not appear on the tab bar, although they do appear on the pull-down list on the far right.

This is the most obvious problem, but there is other strange behaviour when in this state, such as the screen not refreshing when switching tabs, and Firefox crashing with "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library" "Runtime Error!" "abnormal program termination".
