Updated to this version but the new tab page didn't save my most visited sites as is the intention. Dragged my most used websites over there and worked but there is no thumbnail-picture or anything to show, just empty boxes with just below the site described as in my bookmarks.

Previously when I use the 'Search Google for' context menu - (the menu item is shown when you select any text on a page and right click on it) - the search results page would open in a background tab. Now after the upgrade, seach results page is opening in the foreground. Really annoying :(

Ok so, I was just curious as how I can get rid of this new pinning website thing when I open a new tab. I don't want my most visited websites or any site for that matter being shown. Please if anyone can help me get it back the way it was, that would be great, and if not, just tell me how not to have my most visited auto pinned. Thank you so much for your time. Hope you have a great day!

In Firefox 13 they have now included a speed dial page which was once an add-on. My questions about this are, is there any way to create groups like the speed dial add-on. If so can I change each individual groups layout to a 3x3 or a 5x5. This is more aesthetically pleasing, seeing as I may have gaming sites in one group, wallpaper sites in another, social networking in another, each group having a different number of dials.

Last week I changed some of my passwords and now some of the sites I changed the login info for no longer keep me logged in even after I've ask them to do so. As an example, I will ask Gawker sites to remember that I want to view their sites in blog view as I always have but after an hour it will always revert to the default settings. Other sites I will sign into and 30-60 minutes later I go back and am logged out.

I can load the home page, but if i click on anything past it, it acts like it continually loads, nothing comes up on the page, it sticks at "Transferring data from www.instructables.com..." or "Read www.instructables.com" it seems to only have happened after upgrading to firefox 13. I have an old version of firefox aurora that came with the tor browser suite and tried instructables on there. worked perfect, and i was going to instructables on a regular basis before the update, so it's gotta be from the update right? what can i do to fix it?

P.S. It's not just the specific URL under "URL of affected site" because none of the pages will load after the home page.

Since a recent FF update, the letter S using google webfont Nobile in bold appears distorted for font sizes under 17px. Here is an example: http://www.aucc.ca/test-google-webfont/

This seems to be a FF for Windows specific issue as the font renders properly in other major browsers. This has been tested on multiple systems as well. Other Google webfonts render properly as well.
