Ever since the new update (3.6.11) My favs & history won't show up in the url bar as I type. Anyone else having this prob or know how to solve? Also, its not a privacy setting issue, ive double checked this. For that matter, when I try to adjust my privacy settings to custom, the setting bounces back to remember all. I don't know if this is an update glitch or an add-on glitch. All I know is the previous 3.6.10. wasn't doing this.

Help if ya can, please and thanks. ;)

Under Tools>Options>Privacy tab, until recently, there was a cookies button that allowed you to type into a list the URL of specific tracking cookies that you wanted to block. If any anti-virus scans found any such cookies, I could add them into the list. That was a great option. It seems that list and that option no longer exists. Why

I installed Firefox beta 4, but every time it opens I cannot see any content. The tabs and toolbars are on the top, but the rest of the screen has the glass look and shows only the stuff behind firefox.

Also, what appears to be a status bar, (with noscript icon and sync controls) shows up on the top left just below the toolbar.

I can navigate to pages, go back and forward, and see it all load in the tabs at the top, but I see nothing below.

I would like to know how to access Add-Ons on the other user account on this same computer. As well as how to hide the Add-ons from showing on the bottom bar of the screen but still have access to them

My third question is how to automatically disconnect from Sync once I close Firefox. So that only the person with the master password has access to the saved information.

After I was forced to update to 3.6.11 my bookmarks (about 610 of them) search from the sidebar very slow. It's painfully slow. Makes my blood heat up when I think of Firefox now :(

I've tried clear cache, create new profile and import bookmarks, running an add on to clear dns issue bookmarks and duplicates, removed all live bookmarks.

I have the "Remember passwords for sites" and "Use a master password" boxes checked and a master password successfully set - but Firefox has stopped asking me whether I want to remember passwords or not and, of course, does not save them.

I have tried unchecking them, clearing the master password, clearing all remembered passwords then rechecking and setting a new master password but no luck.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help.

The second bar is inside of the sizing grip on the right side of the status bar. It does nothing, but take up space. The functional progress bar appears only when it is working inside of the message panel and outside of the authentication panel on the left side of the status bar. I've turned the status bar off and then on again--no luck. I've also tried disabling all add-ons--no luck. I've also changed themes--no luck. Do I need to re-install the browser?

When I start typing XYZ in the address bar I want it to come up with autocomplete suggestions for URLs that begin with XYZ such as http://xyz.qwerty.com or http://www.xyzqwerty.com and NOT http://www.qwerty.com/asdfgXYZhjkl/

The worst thing is that it also looks at the title of pages. What use is it for me when I type 'er' in the address bar and it comes up with the URL for a page titled "In Twin Peaks: THE REAL FWWM WOODS AND DEER MEADOW...AND WIND RIVER' because of the ERs in the titles, when the URL of the said page is http://www.intwinpeaks.com/2008/05/real-fwwm-woods.html ?!?!

That is to say to behave like it did on FF2. In fact that's one of the major reasons why I stayed with FF2 until a few wees ago.

The other thing is that you combined the small back and forward arrows into one, which is very inconvenient I see that on IE, not sure whose original idea it was but it certainly isn't making the browser more user friendly.

I wish these were OPTIONAL features, features we can adjust from the settings.

I am not sure how I did this, but now when I go to drag a web page lower on the right side slider bar another mini bar shows up. If I accidently hit that I suddenly have two pages up at the same time and I can not get back to where I was without closing the page entirely.

How do I avoid this? I rarely want two pages at one time.
