Ever since I installed the add-on Favicon Picker 2 that lets you change the bookmark icons, I can't open tabs any more. The second tab will open, but if you try to go to a site, the FIRST tab redirects to that site. Basically, I can only use one tab at a time. Is there any way I can keep this add-on and use tabs?

How settings for privacy and security are supposed to work vs. how they work

1. I have ALL cookies blocked in all windows, through the CUSTOM option. Some websites defined in the Exception list as Blocked and some websites that I cannot recognize … (read more)

1. I have ALL cookies blocked in all windows, through the CUSTOM option. Some websites defined in the Exception list as Blocked and some websites that I cannot recognize (and are not on the Exception list as Allowed or Allowed for session), still save cookies that I can see under Manage Data. The first two screen captures )on the left) show Google as blocked, but still saving cookies. Is this a feature or a bug?

2. I am using a website called athenahealth. It forced me to allow for session a bunch of domains and subdomains, including one that starts with 8752-2.

The last 2 screen captures show: - info in the Shield for cookies, where the subdomain starting w. 8752-2 is shown as blocked

- the list of exceptions that shows this same subdomain (starting w. 8752-2) as allowed for session.

How is the above possible? Is this the way this is meant to work?

3. Is there a way to copy out, export or at least print the list of websites under Exceptions? I am concerned that somehow they are deleted (I was reading that Refresh deletes them, maybe something else does that too) and it took me quite a lot of experimentation to figure out what is that I have to allow for websites that I need vs. what I can safely block, when blocking ALL doesn't do the job.

4. Is there anything planned to allow a preview before printing (like in Safari) to facilitate printing only what one wants to print?

I'd very much appreciate answers to the above.

"Bookmarks Toolbar" recent usage change/update

Why did Firefox change the way one could hide or display the "Bookmarks Toolbar"?

Before all one had to do was click on "View" and one could hide or show the Bookmarks Toolbar, but with the latest change/update, now one has to chose select "View", then hover over "Toolbars", then hover over "Bookmarks Toolbar", and finally select "Always", "Never" or "Only on New Tab". How could that be an improvement? I miss being able to toggle it off or on in a rapid manner, because now I have to waste more time to just hide or display it again.

Is there a way to be able to view or hide the "Bookmarks Toolbar" in a more efficient manner? I'm asking because I normally have to hide them and later display them back again tens of times on a daily basis, mainly because when I take screen captures, I don't want the Bookmarks Toolbar to appear. So this new feature really annoys me.

Hopefully there's another alternative to be able to toggle it on or off.

Is this a Firefox 9.01 problem or a problem of the website? I've never had a problem using Firefox on this site. Thank you.

I have been getting Pop Up Emails from a site that says it's conducting surveys or offering discounts to click on and proceed to another site. It usually says it's conducting the survey for a known company like Quest, or often uses the name of the company site I'm trying to go to. I have tried restricting cookies, pop up's , etc. but can't seem to get rid of this annoying site. I even had it come up 3 times while trying to navigate the Firefox site. Ex.address .... http://spinandwin.com-eso.pw/us/initial_p.php?t=rp

How do I stop or block this site? Thanks, CCS
