When I use a shortcut (to open a web page at Yahoo.com) with the application Launchbar, if Firefox was not already launched, it launches, opens a blank window, then opens another window with the requested web page.

This problem is already listed in the list ofproblems, and it is stated that this has been corrected. IT HAS NOT.

As a matter of fact, this is new behaviour since 3.6.x

Thanks.

I can't begin to tell you because the whole set up is a mess. Tiny print (regardless of instructions) pages won't open, often can not get access to page, and each time you make a change, it get's worse. With 2 new updates your requested me to make (3.7 & 3.8) I afraid my computer will be ruined. You also request I upgrade to adobe 10.1. I don't know how. Am I suppose to simply install it or do I uninstall 7.9 first and when will all your problems with firefox stop being my problems? How do I talk to a real person? You sure aren't like dealing with Apple. Firefox not user friendly unless you are a scientist.

I upgraded last week to Firefox 3.6.7 and found it prone to massive hang/unresponsive issues. I updated all my plug-ins; still happened. I tested with disabling plug-ins, and it only happened with Flash. This morning I upgraded to 3.6.8, hoping it would fix the problem, but it's still tripping into hang.

== various sites or windows were active or attempting to be opened. It's happened when I've opened the Add-Ons window, but my usual test has been gmail. It goes into limbo there when I try to delete a message, load another page of inbox, or sometimes load a message.

When I go to "Organize Bookmarks", I want to find what folder my bookmark "Ask.com" is in, so I type "Ask" in the search bar. It then gives a list web sites/bookmarks, some of which don't appear to have anything to do with "ask" . But it doesn't tell me which folder it's in.
