Need a shortcut to "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above option preference" I know where it is and how to use it but I have to go through 7 mouse clicks to change it, then a few minutes later change it back. I also know the sequnce is alt t, alt o, alt c, alt a, then ok, ok. Got to be a way to make a one key short cut for this. I use a black background to reduce eye strain, but about 10% of the webpage I go to can't be send with black so I have to go into tools and hit 6 or 7 things to chnage it then after through with webpage have to do it all over at Not allow webpages to have own color. Very very cumbersome.

This happened

A few times a week

I am currently helping to develop a mobile site and it is very useful to view firefox in a smaller, windowed mode to emulate a mobile screen. The problem is when I try and use F11 to toggle hiding of the taskbars - it automatically makes the window full screen.

I know I could just manually hide the taskbars, but having to remove and then add them continually is a laborious process. Is there any way of using F11 whilst in a windowed, non-full screen mode?

Firefox 4.0b1 and b2 rendering incorrect weight of some fonts

The first thing I had noticed when I upgraded from FF 3.6 to 4 beta 1 was that Firefox was incorrectly rendering fonts as bold. After some digging I found out that it was the font-family:"helvetica neue" line in the css file that was causing the ugly bolded font (black weight, actually). After editing the css to "Helvetica 55 Roman", the font displays okay.

Example site: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/?browse=featured The thing happens in the very mozilla addons site.

Also have noticed that the same bug occurs on different fonts, where the font name in css is specified in alternative namings, as in "나눔 고딕" for NanumGothic (korean font).

The bug didn't seem to have fixed in beta 2, nor could I find any other thread/document on the web with the same problem. I doubt it's my own problem, since it worked just fine in older versions and I have the very same font files installed since the start.

When I loaded the i-tunes programme it asked for a link programme to open it. I did not realise that Mozilla was a programme in the box and I had pressed enter before I could stop myself. Ever since, thousands of tabs open at the top of the Mozilla page corresponding to each of my tunes. I have taken i-tunes off but if I try to reload the programme the same thing happens. I need to get rid of this link but don't know how.

I went into Firefox and saved the setting: "Firefox will remember my tabs and windows from last time." But I also told Firefox to not save my history, now whenever I close it and reopen it, it takes me to one tab, Google. When I had 6 tabs opened when I closed it, do tabs count as history?

Mozilla displays html code in stead of the correct page. I checked the content-type in the header, it is text/plain. But inside the html file the content-type is mentioned as text/html in the meta tag. Is there any way to force content-type to mozilla to use text/html instead of reading from the response header.
