Another way to hang FF is to open the add-on manager and click "Update add-ons"

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I upgraded to b2 from FF4b1 and tried to upgrade add-ons

When I navigate (click on) to a bookmark in either the bookmarks folder or in a folder on my bookmarks bar it remains highlighted when I reopen those folders until I mouse over it again. This happens all the time to the point that I can have dozens of bookmarks highlighted in a browsing session.

I use Windows 7 Home Premium and Firefox 4 Beta 2.

When I try to submit feedback for Firefox b2, I get the following message:

"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."

My useragent is 'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 (x86_64); rv:2.0b2) Gecko/20100720 Firefox/4.0b2'. It seems normal, any ideas?

The question is pretty self-explanatory, but this is what is happening:

Every time I go to submit feedback, I'll click either "Firefox Made Me Happy Because..." or "Firefox Made Me Sad Because..." and it will open the correct URL, but then transfer to the Input Download page. I had even thought, because my computer has had a couple issues the past week that I resolved, that something happened to my Firefox, so I reinstalled Beta 2, but that did not resolve the issue.

So, has anyone else had this issue, and is there a way to fix it?

Thanks!

Love the new apps tab but how do I make them permanent? When I get them set up I go to tools-options-general-use current pages. However when i restart firefox, the app tabs are gone and the program starts with some generic firefox home page (not my custom set-up which is I-Google, gmail, weather, facebook and business mail account). I'm running window 7 ultimate on my desktop and windows 7 home premium on my laptop. I'm using a hardwire T-1 cable connection to the internet. My ISP is AT&T.

Hi,starting form yesterday the feedback button in Firefox 4.0 beta 2 isn't working anymore,it redirects to the download page for 4.0 beta 2 telling I have to upgrade to the latest version to use the feedback function-anybody know what's going on? I've already reset to default general.useragent.extra.firefox and general.useragent.locale,still doesn't work-thanks

Edit:well,as someone pointed out on the Input Dashboard,changing general.useragent.extra.firefox to 4.0b3 makes the feedback function work again,however I'm not sure if the message then actually appears on the dashboard-very strange,hope it gets fixed ASAP.

I navigate to Gmail in FF 3.6.8 or 4.0 and log in. The site begins to load but after about 3 seconds it crashes the browser. The crash appears to be tied to the calendar sidebar widget loading, but that may just be a coincidence of the timing.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 3.6.8. That didn't help.

I loaded Firefox in safe mode, disabled / uninstalled all the plug-ins and that didn't help.

So I installed 4.0 to see if that would fix it and it hasn't.

I am on a Dell XPS 1530 with Windows Vista.

(note: I have hundreds of bookmarks) I search the word "idea" in the location bark (with prefs set as searching for Bookmarks) and only SOME of the bookmarks with "idea" in the name come up. I type "ideas" and they all disappear, even though there IS one with the word "ideas". This happens even in Safe Mode.
