Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop, Windows 7, Firefox 4. I'm hoping there is a short cut or at least some way to get out of full screen without restarting Firefox. Once I pressed f1 and the task bar came back. But I tried f1 again many times in full screen and I didn't get the task bar back. ( the screen goes dark for a couple of seconds and comes back.)

I figured out how to get out of full screen, by reducing the window size. Is there a short cut to get in and out of full screen?

Whenever I stop moving my mouse (while hovered over a Firefox window) Firefox freezes and does nothing until I move the mouse again (or back on a window). It doesnt even load pages or anything, it just freezes, but unfreezes immediatly when the mouse is moved again. It does also seem to semi-unfreeze while typing.

There also seems to be a related problem with Flash, after some time working with Firefox and then opening a Flash element initially does nothing, but interacting (AKA clicking, hover ing does not affect this but actually affects the flash) freezes the browser, but not the sound, minimizing or attempt to close (with multiple tabs open) fixes the freeze.

I just downloaded firefox 4 -BRILLIANT! However one small problem. I have a 10MB/s wifi connection, cleared my internet cache and history more then once, no other tabs or programs running but my online web videos are loading slow, and I watch them a lot since I miss them on TV. From sites like wisevid or karambavideo they used to load so fast, now they are soooooo slow and it's unbearable. Any ideas?

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.

message continued... Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct. Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working..

When I go to Tools, Options, Advanced Configure how Firefox Connects to the Internet the settings are Manual with theHTTP proxy set to 127.0.0.1 Port 50687.  Then it says No Proxy for localhost 127.0.01.  In order to do anything I change the setting to Autodetect, but it keeps switching back.  Please tell me what to do.  

The only other thing I did today was to run a Malwarebytes scan that found some bad files and they were quarantined/deleted. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it.

It appears I somehow got upgraded to the newest version of firefox. And everytime I try to clear the history it freezes. Then I get errors... Something about a script... or the program will just say "not responding"

Can this be fixed? If not can I download an older version which worked?

I am trying to utilize Citrix XenApp to remotely access my work userid and applications from home. I can login and see my virtual desktop/applications, but when I try to run an application I get SSL Error 61: you have chosen not to trust "Equifax Secure Global eBusiness CA-1" the issuer of the server's security certificate. I have tried to update the certificate (FFx says its valid), add an exception (cannot because certif is valid), uninstall/reinstall application (no good), but still no luck. Have contacted my company's IT and they are baffled as well. Any ideas to bypass or redo a setting that says I do trust this certificate would be welcome.
