I've updgraded to Firefox 4.6 beta to 4.7 Yesterday everything was ok Today when I search something it goes to Bing ! I don't mind if you suggest to go to Bing instead of Google, but there you're FORCING me to this change and I HATE that ! More than this, nothing clear in the options show how to change of default search engine ! WTF ?

I like having a start page that I can put "boxes" on for local news, local weather, sports info, entertainment info. You could set that all up in Google Chrome so that once you logged in, all those boxes were on your start page. Right now, when I sign into Firefox, all I see is the Google Search box.

When I select a drop down menu - Feedback, say, the drop down flickers in and out of visibility as I move down the menu. I can select an item, even though I can't see it, but it is hard to use menus I'm not familiar with. Same thing happens in the address bar with the drop down address 'help' - the bar constantly flickers in and out, and, in this case, when I attempt to use the drop down, the menu items disappear just as my mouse approaches them, then reappear as the mouse moves to the next item.

I have tried this with all addons (I don't have many) disabled. I have tried the nightly build. Nothing has fixed this problem so far.

Too bad, since I'm definitely liking the speed and the new look.

I would consider this a showstopper. I'm amazed that it hasn't been reported before.

I am trying to set my home page and specify which pages open when I start Firefox. I dislike that the pages I had open last time automatically open up. Sometimes I close FF to get rid of unwanted pages and it annoys me that they all open back up when I restart FF.

So far the Firefox upgrades are nothing but trouble to me and my computer. Where is the homepage. Why when I open Firefox from the desktop shortcut do I not get a homepage, but rather the last page I visited. I was doing bills, and finished but couldn't find the log off button, so closed the page, and then closed firefox. When I re-opened, it opened right to the page where I was still signed into my account!!!!!!! A security failure if I ever saw one. There is not one thing I have found to be helpful since Firefox first updated me to 3.6.14, then quit responding completely! So I tried the 4 Beta, and it is so far a disaster.

I could just show icons in the Bookmarks Toolbar in previous Firefox versions but was this done via an Add-on? Anyway, would like to do this in Firefox 4 (beta 6). I can delete the text item by item but this is laborious and means that the text no longer displays when I hover the mouse over the icon. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

In FF 3.x two commands: "open in window" and "open in new tab" have got just this order. But - I don't know why - in FF 4.x the order is reversed. Every time when I click right button of my mouse and select the second option - where in FF 3.x I've got "open in new tab" I can see web site in a new window, not in a new tab.

How can I change it? I tried editor menu and I edited userchrome.css, but it's not working or I don't know how to change it. Without it I must uninstall FF 4.x because it's unusable.

I bought a new laptop with a resolution of 1920x1080. Whenever I open sites with firefox, they appear small. I have to press ctrl++ to zoom in for every page I visit. This is getting annoying. Is there any way to permanently zoom a page so I don't have to do it for every website?

P.S. I know that I can increase the font size permanently that that doesn't help with the images and the page doesn't render correctly.
