When I click on feedback button to say something about the beta version flaws or praises, the following message gets displayed instead of taking my input. Earlier it was working fine.

"""Oh! So, you want to offer us feedback on the next version of Firefox. Thank you, but you'll need to be on our latest beta.

To do that, simply go to our download page and install/update to the latest Firefox Beta!"""

Hi,

I have just received the following message: "You have chose to open ff-update.exe .... from: *. Would you like to save this file."

I've never seen this message before and can't find any references to either the exe file or the http address. Is this file and/or http address safe?

Regards,

Ian

I just installed the new Firefox 4.0 beta 5. I was using Firefox 3.6.9 previously.

In Firefox 4 beta, I cannot find the menu item for changing the location of the cache. Has this feature been deleted, or simply moved to some other menu?

Specifically, I need to switch the cache location from the default C:\Users\{username}\ ..... to a different drive. This is something people commonly do if they want to minimize fragmentation on their system disk.

How can I specify a different location for the cache?

When I click the 'return to home page' button, only 'http://' shows in the address bar (the rest was accidentally deleted) and an 'Invalid address' alert shows. I've tried entering the address that shows when the mouse hovers over the button and then it works of course. When I use the button again, I get the same alert and a new 'http://' tab appears.

I've already imported most of my bookmarks, but it's been a while since then, and I'd like to add those I've acquired since. However, I'm worried it will simply double the ones I already have, as well as adding the newer ones. Will FF know not to add more of the same ones, or will they all just be piled on?

On the left is FF 4b5, with slightly blurry text on Lifehacker. On the right is Chrome 6.0.472.59 beta, without the blurry text.

I should note that the blurry text was not an issue in FF 4b4 or earlier.

I have also upgraded just now to 4b6, and the same issue is present.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix it? Already tried to reinstall flash plugin.

Because my question involves the appearance of firefox, I have taken screenshots and posted them on a free image hosting service. After clicking the link, click the image to view it in full-size.

Figures 1-3 Figures 4-5

I am running Windows 7, and Firefox 4.0 Beta 6.

I recently turned off cleartype, but because Segoe UI is designed for it, I switched my default system font to Tahoma. Now all my fonts in all my programs are much clearer. There is only one program that didn't follow-suit, and that is firefox.

Figure 1 is an example of the font issues with firefox, figures 2 and 3 are examples of the same font displaying without any issues in Windows Explorer and IE. In figure 1, note how the vertical line letters such as 'i', 'k', and 'l' look terrible next to other letters, as in Edit and Tools.

Figures 4 and 5 are enlarged examples. The letters in the exact same word, 'Tools', using the same font, Tahoma, are all squished together in Firefox. It also appears the word is 3 or 4 pixels shorter in width, while being the same height. It is as if Firefox is trying to force a font size of 9, while the rest of my system uses 10.
