After upgrade to Firefox 36, extremely slow start up--- the hour glass comes on, then off, then eventually in the left hand corner "New tab" shows up and finally my home page arrives. Previous version of Firefox loaded almost immediately. I have Windows 7 and use Norton.

I tried setting master password yet appeared that submit or accept was greyed and it gave no confirmation of setting it. Did not use PC for over a week (out of town for funeral) afterwards and came back to find it now required a master and had no idea what I had used the day I tried setting it. I backed up my bookmarks and now wonder if I install a new version if importing those will require the master password I don't know.

I suggest that the master password set should confirm that it was set. I had "cancelled" on that screen so assumed no password was in place. Tough lesson to learn if I have to reset and lose all passwords.

I was wondering if there is a place in the forum that takes suggestions from end-user that would greatly enhance use of firefox?

My suggestion is related to browser customization layout.

It would be nice if we could put "breaks" in the bars going across the top and bottom,  so that when we add one of the shortcut icons, they don't all bunch up on the left side of the browser.

For example put all the privacy related icons on left, all the browsing related icons in middle, and all the chat related icons on right side. This way they are not all lumped on the left is a small area.

So it is easier to see security related info while not being distracted by chat related icons for example that are bunched right next to it.

here is a very good example of what I am suggesting from VLC interface customization. http://www.vlc-player-download.com/vlc/interface-customization.html

note the "<->" this says put space here between control icons.

Maybe that's all you need is a square that is blank without an Icon that can be repeatedly placed to give user control over how much space is between control icons.

I suspect doing it this way would minimize the coding needed All I can imagine you needing is the new "repetitive" part blank icon block. Letter O is the blank block other lefter first letter of control icon. Example: S-A-G-O-O-O-O-O-O-D-T-O-O-O-O-O-C-V-R see how the control letters are now spaced with blank "O" in between? Now when I am looking at the security related control icons on left I do not have D,T,C,V,R distracting me from S,A,G.

The Web Site I use is http://www.forexfactory.com/market It has regional time settings and viewing preferences that allow settings to be saved for levels of news. This means the next time you login, your local time is right and the settings are held. It has been working fine in Microsoft IE. But I'm moving everything to Firefox and this is one site that when using Firefox won't hold the settings etc.

The support forum seems well designed overall, but I wish there was an "undo" button for the "I have this problem too" button. I am constantly clicking on this button by accident, and there seems to be no undo. It distorts what problems are truly important, and is confusing. Maybe just a button next to the option to receive email updates?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, please let me know if it isn't.

Under the tools drop down I found this: Przycisk aplikacji . The arror allows you to create a new button.

A web search suggests that might be Polish that has something to do with Windows (or maybe FireFox?) in that language.

haven't figureout how to get rid of it-or get it back to an English tool that I can understand.

My OS is Win7 x 64, FireFox is 36.0.1.

I don't check the tools very often, not sure when this showed up. And my language is English with a little bit of Spanish.
