Sometimes the url of a webpage I have saved spontaneously disappears from the "location" column of the bookmarks organizer page, although it is still in the url field at the bottom of the page. The normal process of clicking on the bookmark and hitting delete doesn't work, so the bookmark becomes a useless phantom whose corresponding webpage cannot be accessed by clicking on the bookmark. How do I delete such a phantom bookmark?

When going to some websites an additional input sneak onto the screen. A "radio button" requires me to pick the button (upper right of screen) which has the word "allow" on the button. This occurs randomly and not on all requests to go to a website. Why does this step occur, why so random and can I TURN THE PEST OFF?

Some photos or game parts do not show in email, game sites, blogs, and so on. Sometimes I get a part of a picture. Sometimes I can click on it, and it shows in another window, but often I cannot.

I have 2 Macs. The latest is OS 10.6.4, the oldest is years earlier; the problem is the same on both of them. I would like to use Firefox, but have problems in that it does not always get photos, whether in email, blogs, or wherever. It does not always get parts of games I am trying to play online. Sometimes, I cannot shop because I cannot see all of what I am trying to order. At other times, it gets photos and diagrams fine. If I switch to Safari I do not have the problem. I have checked all my Firefox settings and do not see anything that could cause this, and I do not know how to fix it. Can you be of assistance?

After the last update, Firefox started asking permission to use fonts located on a external drive. These are weird fonts that were in a font folder I downloaded a few years ago. Also Firefox is making weird noises, like little bongs and cat hisses.

When trying to install the update, I get a message asking me if I want to replace an older item, and I click OK. THEN I get a message saying it could not be completed as I do not have permissions for some items. I clicked command-I and got the information window, clicked the closed lock, entered the correct administrator password, and then said to ignore ownership on this volume. I get the same results.

Since my most recent update I am constantly getting an "indexing" pop-up/status window that says firefox is reindexing my history. Every 30-60 seconds. It's very annoying, and never happened before. How can I get it to stop?

The window says "Indexing Firefox History" and stays up for about 3 seconds, then closes. It's on a MacBook Pro, 8GB memory, 500GB SSD, latest patches up and running. I d… (read more)

The window says "Indexing Firefox History" and stays up for about 3 seconds, then closes.

It's on a MacBook Pro, 8GB memory, 500GB SSD, latest patches up and running.

I don't doubt that this has been going on all the time with the various versions, but this version seems to have enabled the status window popup.
