Is there a way to change 'Find in page' to put the focus back at the bottom of the page? (FF 12.0)

With the update to Firefox 12, using the 'Find in page' feature now centers results on the page (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=171237 for specifics). I checked the about:config page and I don't see anything that would change this back to the prior behaviour. I find myself struggling at time to find the highlighted text now, whereas before I knew exactly where to expect it on the page.

Is there any way to go back to this earlier behaviour without having to revert to an earlier version?

For my website I currently use .flv videos.

I want to switch to .mkv videos to show on my website but I don't believe firefox has support for mkv videos, only chrome.

I want to create an extension that allows for the viewing of .mkv videos.

I know firefox supports .mp4 videos and I would like a view of that source code so that it would be far more easy to incorporate support for .mkv videos.

Is there a place where I can get .mp4 support source code so that I can write an extension for .mkv videos?

Thanks,

I can't display certain symbols on Firefox. Example: does not show anything on the browser. However, would show the correct symbol.

I discovered a hack that displays the symbol by changing the tag.

will display the symbol. This hack, however is semantically incorrect and I don't want it in my site just so the symbol can display on Firefox. Any other suggestions?

Java is just not running on Firefox 11 or above, it keeps telling you that is not running and it needs to be installed, my operating system is Windows 7 x64bits. I don't know if this problem also exist on x86 bits OS. I really like Mozilla and for now I've been obligated to use IE9 for Java based webpages and I don't like it. Any help on this issue will be appreciated.

Tabs no longer converge on the position of the last closed tab like Chrome (so you can close a long series of tabs without moving the mouse). Plugin fix?

1) Open enough tabs force them to change width (compress horizontally).

2) attempt to close several tabs quickly.

3) get frustrated as the tabs automatically re-size to fill all the available horizontal space, moving the closing X button out of the way of the mouse, as opposed to the remaining tabs simply converging left, placing the next tab's X button where the previous one was.

Firefox behaved this way in 11.x and now suddenly it doesn't. Slightly annoying...

Works on all other browsers on both PC and Mac, only Firefox (and I have the latest version 12.0 on both PC and Mac) has the issue, which of course will make everyone seeing this scary popup click the "get me out of here" button.

What is causing this issue to happen on the very specific setup of Firefox 12 on Mac and not anywhere else?
