When I click on the star to bookmark a webpage, it goes to "Unsorted Bookmarks" so I have to move it manually to "Boomarks Menu", which is annoying. Is there a way to set a default folder?

I have been unable to access material on the Times Online website for three days. The homepage still loads as normal, and at first I was still able to look at the Papers page to see individual stories, but today I can't get that far. Instead I am getting the message "502 Proxy Error / The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server. / The proxy server could not handle the request GET /iam/services/setContext. / Reason: Error reading from remote server."

Address bar and search bar are too large in Firefox 4.12 Beta. I can make one of them smaller but it makes the other one larger to refill the space. Any way to make them both smaller so I can acquire a little more real estate to add one or two more icons? I'm already using "small icons" in the "customize" section. Also, can I move the "home" icon to the left of the address bar since I use it regularly?

Win 7 64 bit FF 4 b12.

Why does the return key not work after typing a url? Its annoying to have to use the mouse to click on the "go" button.

Also there is no "Check for updates" button, not so much for FF but for addons.

Thirdly, the addons bar does not show my addons eg Flashgot, Addblock.

Thnx

How do I get FF4 to use Google's I'm feeling lucky feature?

I first thought it was something in DNS, but yet this is not a problem in FF3.6.13

My web browsing workflow was as follows- Type name of website in address bar, hit enter, wait for mozilla.org homepage to load.

Now if I do the exact same thing in FF4b12, I get a google search results page instead of the mozilla.org homepage.

Why is that? And where in about:config can I go to fix that?

I have tried this on two different internet connections, my home ISP using the ISP provided DNS and at my workplace where we run an in-house DNS server.

I am on a Mac running Snow Leopard 10.6.6, I use AdblockPlus and FirefoxB persona.

See the google query differences below- FF4b10/11 used it and it works the same in FF3.6

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=mozilla

This is the query in FF4 b12- http://www.google.com/search?q=mozilla&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Do you see the difference??

So far the Firefox upgrades are nothing but trouble to me and my computer. Where is the homepage. Why when I open Firefox from the desktop shortcut do I not get a homepage, but rather the last page I visited. I was doing bills, and finished but couldn't find the log off button, so closed the page, and then closed firefox. When I re-opened, it opened right to the page where I was still signed into my account!!!!!!! A security failure if I ever saw one. There is not one thing I have found to be helpful since Firefox first updated me to 3.6.14, then quit responding completely! So I tried the 4 Beta, and it is so far a disaster.

Whenever I hover on a link, the URL shows at the bottom left screen instead of the address bar itself. How do I change it? I want to see the URL whenever I hover a link back to the address bar, beside the URL of my current page. Thanks!

In FF 3.x two commands: "open in window" and "open in new tab" have got just this order. But - I don't know why - in FF 4.x the order is reversed. Every time when I click right button of my mouse and select the second option - where in FF 3.x I've got "open in new tab" I can see web site in a new window, not in a new tab.

How can I change it? I tried editor menu and I edited userchrome.css, but it's not working or I don't know how to change it. Without it I must uninstall FF 4.x because it's unusable.

Sirs ~

For last two weeks it takes me 6 to 15 attempts to get Firefox to 'boot up' If/when it does, it may load several home pages after being non responsive on previous attempts. Then, after finally getting it 'booted', 90+% of the time it crashes, locks up my computer up or infamously goes "Firefox is not responding" and I can't end the program either! I have to shut down completely and reboot from scratch ~ bet I have rebooted my computer over 500 times in last week!!! Have spent as much as an hour plus trying to turn my computer (Compaq N600C laptop) turned on and load Firefox to get to my 40+ Bookmarks I am using as a favorites list! If/when I do get to a website ~ then that site (g-mail, for instance) does weird stuff frequently ~ not respond, not print keystrokes, not let highlight and copy, paste, etc. ~ not send e-mails!! Fix FIREFOX!!!!! ~ I have a friend experiencing the same kind of troubles with firefox! on a different home PC ~ he thought it was a virus and took his computer to the shop!!

Thanks in advance for your consideration, resolution, and response to me on this problem I am experiencing!

Best,

Mark Fields
