I added the Boolean line in about:config; network.manage-offline-status and set value to false, as FF was going offline every time my Mac slept. The next morning the offline behavior returned. Silly me, I simply added the line again and now have it twice. How do I delete that extra command? Even if it's ineffective it's untidy.

I have several Gmail accounts. One particular username/password is not being remembered. It used to be remembered but now it does not appear in the dropdown list of usernames. I enter it manually each time and FireFox does not prompt to have it saved. If I enter a new Gmail username, I receive the prompt.

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.

Hello I have a problem with my flash video. When I play YouTube video and scroll with my mouse wheel, the static part of the video is redrawn with the rest of the website. The dynamic part is rendered correctly. It's hard to explain it in words so, please, see the picture.

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

In firefox 3.x I use a userChrome.css in, among other things, I hide the folder icons and the 'drop-down' "arrow" icon in order to reduce space used, with the following:

/* Remove Bookmark Item Icons */
#bookmarksBarContent toolbarbutton:not([type=menu]) image {
display: none !important;
-moz-margin-end: 0px !important;
}
/*Hide Bookmark Folder Icon*/
#bookmarksBarContent toolbarbutton[type=menu] image {
display: none !important;
-moz-margin-end: 0px !important;
}
#bookmarksBarContent toolbarbutton[container="true"] .toolbarbutton-menu-dropmarker {
display: none !important;
}

This is now longer working in firefox 4.0b6. Can someone tell me how to do this in firefox 4 ?

Thanks much
