Before the most recent upgrade to Firefox 3.6.8 two weeks ago, everything worked fine with this program. My issue is, I can not copy and paste a URL address from You Tube and download it into a program called Audio Editor. After the upgrade, when I copy and paste the URL address and start to download, there is no download. The message No File Downloaded, please try again. It is like there is nothing there. It worked great for a couple of months. Is there a setting in the new version of Firefox that prevents me from copying, pasting and downloading from You Tube?

This is a RtlpWaitForCriticalSection crash and I read the article on dealing with it to discover the probable cause. However, I don't know what the file is and how it could interfere with my web browsing. Any help? I also noticed that I'm getting frequent crashes with other browsers as well (IE and Chrome, Safari seems to work fine). My most recent crash report is linked below:

My computer shut down for updates overnight. I turned it on this morning. I needed to print out a couple things from Firefox. The printouts all came out in a large format. The print was larger then normal. Only about 2/3 of the page width actually printed out. I experimented to locate the problem. I tried two different printers, both with the same result. I printed out directly from two others programs (Outlook and Word) and the printouts were normal. So it's when i print out from Firefox that the problem occurs. What can I do to return the printing to normal size?

I lost my bookmarks in FF 3.6.3 on one computer. I was able to copy the places.squalite file and place it in a desktop folder of a new computer also using FF 3.6.3. I'm not sure how to import this file into the new FF. Can I go into the program files, rename the places.squalite file there as "old..."and substitute the copy I placed in the desktop folder? Or is there another way to salvage the info?
