crash at start when opening bookmark: bookmark menu covers prompt for general password

Firefox asks for a general password using a drop-down window when opening a page with a log-on section, presumably for an autofill. (It's annoying and I wish I could get rid of it, but that's another story.) My home page has a log-on section, so the prompt appears. But, when I try to choose a bookmarked page, and if the prompt appears while I'm doing it, the bookmark menu covers the prompt. Nothing I do dispels the bookmark menu, whether clicking away from the menu, choosing the menu item, or even just typing the password. I have to restart, sometimes requiring 'force quit' from the Activity Monitor. I automatically clear my history when I quit. Seems obscure enought that it might be a bug...

When trying to forward and e-mail or retrieve it from "drafts" more often than not only the heading will appear and the space where the body of the e-mail belongs is empty. If I try repeatedly - going out and then back in to the e-mail - I can eventually get it and successfully send it on. If I send it while the field is blank the person receiving it will just get a blank e-mail except for the address and subject line.

This happened

A few times a week

Navigation tool bar does not display URL

When I go to a web site, the section of the navigation tool bar that displays the URL of the page no longer shows the http://www URL address as it always did in the past. The size of that part has shrunk. The area where you type in URL for search engine has expanded. I have no problems with the navigation bar, history, bookmarks, tabs, etc. Only problem is the URL does not display the page. Even this page has no URL shown on the navigation bar. All it has is the logo for mozilla and when I put the cursor over it, it says "Web site does not supply identity information." The same thing shows for every site I go to. Yes, I can bookmark the page with no problems and can use bookmarks to return to the page. But no URL is actually displayed like it always did in the past. Oh, I have an IMac and use a razor keyboard.

I added the Boolean line in about:config; network.manage-offline-status and set value to false, as FF was going offline every time my Mac slept. The next morning the offline behavior returned. Silly me, I simply added the line again and now have it twice. How do I delete that extra command? Even if it's ineffective it's untidy.

Since upgrading to 3.6.12 (OS-X) when I click on "Bookmark this page" it never asks where to place the bookmark. Instead the bookmark ends up at the bottom of "Bookmarks Menu" and I must move it with "Organize Bookmarks". I must have changed something, but I'm darned if I can figure out what to do to fix it. Help please.

Netflix on demand video was playing properly in Firefox 4 beta 6 but no longer works in the later betas. When attempting to play a movie I get a message which says "Thanks for Installing once installation is complete, please restart your browser to watch this movie". I can still watch in Chrome and in Opera (masked as Firefox). Silverlight is up to date and I can see it in the Firefox plugins menu. Does anyone know why or how to fix this? Any answers would be fun thanks!
