I am trying to access a webpage, both from links in mail and from googling.

An example page that I am trying to get to is this:

https://support.illumina.com/downloads/humancoreexome-24-v1-0-product-support-files.html

However, every time I click the link, I get to the desired webpage for a few second, before I get redirected to another page: http://emea.support.illumina.com/?langsel=/no/

I have tried both from google, and from using links in the address field, with same result. I do not have this problem on Safari. Neither do I have the problem on another mac (with probably an older Firefox version).

Why is this? It is extremely frustrating not to be able to get to the webpages I want.

Thanks for any help!

I can't figure out how to change the autocomplete settings in option settings on the newest version of Firefox. I used to be able to fill out an entire form with one click. Now I have to click on each individual category to use autocomplete. I would like to be able to still just do one click to fill out entire forms if at all possible. Can someone help me?

Feature request: Fix the status bar

The current 'on-the-fly' status bar has many issues, especially with infinite (or long timeout) loading/hanging of resources on a website with fixed layout. Especially when the given website is more of a webapplication, where you can't scroll, and sometimes the footer provides you with essential dynamic information.

The common feature request is to add the possibility of a fixed status bar, for people that want that (you can leave the default as is).

And my own idea: make the URL in status bar hover on top of the address bar (or part of it, for example aligned to the right so it's never on top of the domain of the current website). This may sound controversial at first, but I think it's definitely the better way in terms of UI design, and makes a lot of sense especially when you are hovering links in a website.

But in any case, everything is better than a browser that forcedly displays something that hides part of the website and cannot be manually removed.

Even the ability to just turn it off for loading resources, and only display it during hovering of links would be a huge improvement! Who cares about the resources that are being loaded anyway, you could always press F12 for that. Or make a popup menu while you hover the address bar, that will show all the resources currently being loaded.

This is seriously a huge design flaw. I hope my message came across.

I don't like how email providers like Yahoo, Microsoft etc. are giving all my personal information to other companies. Since Firefox does such a good job of keeping our browsing private, I was wondering if you will ever have email available for us like they do? Except of course keeping our information private and not giving information to other companies. Thanks !!

was on wsj.com Briefly went to another site. Tried to go back and get error message (multiple tries, including after closing browser) that site is doing something and it probably has something to do w/my denying cookies. Did NOTHING related to cookies - simply went to another site. Can access wsj.com on same computer using IE. First time this has ever happened.
