Why is display:block; required in FF 3.6 to get HTML5 styleable elements to work properly?

I had all sorts of problems getting styleable elements to work in Firefox 3.6. The below code works:



Test

 article { display: block; border: 1px solid red }



Welcome This is a test.



However, it works only because of:

display: block;

when styling the HTML5 article element. If I leave the above code out of the style then the red border is not displayed properly. This code works fine in Chrome and even versions of IE when the article element is added to the DOM.

I never save passwords - never have, never will. Using evil IE, Gmail works correctly in that it prompts me for ID and password for each new browser instance. Yet when I open gmail with FF, it goes straight to my inbox without prompting for ID or password. I use gmail in "always secure" mode. Cookies are enabled, of course, just did not expect my password to be saved and loaded from a cookie. How can I rectify this problem?

The options menu only has "notify but do not update," with no way to turn them off completely. But, since Firefox is apparently just as pushy and stupid as Microsoft programs, Firefox absolutely refuses to stop accept my answer of "no" and then never ask me again... I can't imagine why anyone would willfully update to Firefox 3.6.4, since this adds 1.5x memory to Firefox which is already a HUGE memory hog according to task manager, by adding another process which does absolutely nothing useful at all (any "crashed" pages have to be reloaded anyway - and that's all of them, not just one). It should be pretty obvious to Firefox engineers that no one would want to ever downgrade from 3.6.3 to 3.6.4 , so I can't imagine why it keeps asking me to update, but I definitely need to know how to turn it off.

Hi.

Just reporting issues with the latest Firefox 3.6.6 release where it does not load heavy flash use pages well at all. See www.tsn.ca for an example. It takes 20-30 seconds to fully load the TSN homepage which I noticed started occurring after I had updated to the latest Firefox version. I had the latest Flash plug-ins installed so that wasn't the problem.

I uninstalled Firefox 3.6.6 and located my previous Firefox version 3.6.3 and installed that which totally fixed that issue in loading any Flash websites. Must have been something that was changed in the latest release.

Others I am sure have reported this issue but thought someone should know....to hopefully work out the bugs/issues.

I want each page of hits for google search to contain 100 hits. I login, change the number, save the preferences, exit the browser and it is reset at 10 again. On my desktop at home this fearture works fine even if I don't log in. Why does that matter anyway. Logging in is for an account and is not required for the browser.
