One icon that appears is the one prompting to move it into the applications folder, along the blue one (flat box shaped, with the white Firefox icon, and a slot in the front, on the right side of the screen). I can't get these to stop reappearing.

When I scroll a page down rapidly, and then stop, the page keeps scrolling down even though the mouse wheel is no longer scrolling down. I believe this is a Firefox issue, because in the same exact page in Safari, it doesnt do it.

It is still in my preferences section. but even when I paste it in, I still get the Japanese site. How do I get the English site back, and ensure that I never see the japanese site on my computer ever again?

Automatic Download Mirror Selection Not Working - Easy Way To Disable?

Hey Guys,

There's something wrong with automatically detecting my location when downloading Firefox.

I went here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

I clicked the download button. I am located in Thailand. The first time, I got the download from a website in Belgium. Connections to Europe are dead slow, so this was very slow. Next time I tried, I got Germany! Again, dead slow download.

I eventually found the mirrors page and was able to download at my normal 10 Mbps from the USA.

In general, automatic mirror detection for Thailand should work like this: - If there is a mirror in Thailand, use it! Connections inside Thailand are the fastest. - If there isn't, use a (any) mirror in the USA - Ignore all other countries, even if they're right next to Thailand. Speeds are going to be abysmal.

All other countries are dead slow. That's because nobody ever accesses websites in Belgium, Germany, or even Japan, Malaysia.. etc. 99.9% of all traffic out of Thailand goes to the USA. That's why all ISPs optimize speed to the USA. The rest is an afterthought. Malaysia is right next to Thailand, but it's 10x slower than USA.

So please - either fix the automatic download mirror selection. Or provide an easy way around it. This is apparently for people outside the USA, and it's not working for them.

Sometimes, when I go to a page in Amazon.com (Recommendations, Your Account), Firefox will display a blank page with this at the top:

‹���������������

If I reload, the correct page is displayed. This has happened several times since I converted from Safari to Firefox. This behavior never occurred in Safari.

I'm running Firefox 3.6.8 under OSX 10.6.4 . This problem also happened sporadically under the previous release of Firefox (3.6.7). I have not used a version of Firefox before that one. This problem only occurs with Amazon.com . Other sites I have visited have displayed correctly. In addition, it's not always the same page that generates the garbage, although it's never the Amazon.com home page.

URL of affected sites

http://www.amazon.com
