If I check the "save passwords" checkbox, when I shutdown and restart, the checkmark is gone and the saved passwords no longer function. I have to recheck the box after every startup. The passwords are not lost -- they simply don't work.

I suspect I will be able to use the sidebar to organize my bookmarks, just like organize bookmarks used to work, now that I have found this out. But, it took me many tries over a month, to get the answer, and about 20 minutes just now. So, this is just a complaint. Why did you change the way such an important features works. Why does it make sense?

After installing Firefox 5, the bookmarks pull-down window has changed. First, the area to the right of the file name is extremely wide. Second, when clicking on a filename including bookmark links, the screen listing bookmarks covers the filenames, thus making it impossible to simply scroll back to the filename list.

I have recently upgraded to Firefox 5.0. I am having two problems since the upgrade:

1. Firefox no longer saves the websites that I left 0pen from a previous session even though the box is checked to do so. Additionally, I am never given the option to "restore previous session" from the history menu. It is always "ghosted" out and cannot be selected from the menu.

2. When I open Firefox, regardless of whether I use a shortcut or access the browser any other way, multiple instances are opened automatically. I suspect that the number of instances are equivalent to the number of tabs I left open in the previous session but I'm not sure about this. They all open to a blank page, however, and do not open to the websites that were assigned to each tab in the previous session.

Thank you for your assistance.

Also when I change tabs it will take a good by my guess 30secnond minimum & who knows for the maximum time. This issue really depends what website I am trying to load but even the basic websites this problem happens to me. Also I when I try to do anything that has do with flash like YouTube this problem will happen.
