Sorry about this! 2 persistent problems with Firefox 3 make it impossible for me to go on using what was my favourite browser. Both have so many different manifestations that it won't help if I give very precise details. ALL Firefox forums report the same things, just slightly different.

1) All goes well until Firefox starts using 25-40% CPU capacity and stutters to a halt. Only solution - shut down and restart. OK if once a day - but it happens every other session now.

2) Autocomplete works fine for a time (usernames, passwords &c), then just stops. Solution - restart Firefox. So many variations on this in the usual forums - my own problem is relatively minor - at least it works to begin with. And of course I have the Google bar add-on - it's far too useful to do without.

My reason for posting this unhelpful "question" - there is almost bound to be an underlying reason for these Firefox V3 problems - too many people have reported too many similar but not identical cases. None of the proposed hacks (about:config hacks, deleting certain files &c) makes any difference.

My suggestion - concentrate on fixing these problems before making any more releases or enhancements - focus all the brilliant intellectual power of your best developers on them. It's absurd that such an amazing project should start to founder because of basic problems like these. It's almost as bad as the Windows 7 F5 problem (when your folder window isn't updated to reflect changes until you press F5).

This is really a minor issue, and I think it might just end up being a new feature that needs to be added to the next version of Firefox. But my problem is, oftentimes, I'm browsing my history library looking for sites that I looked for maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. I scroll down quite a ways, eventually find what I'm looking for, and then click on the site to open it. The problem I have, which is really merely an annoyance, is that when I click on one page, my library immediately exits out of whatever time frame I'm currently in and sets the time frame to "Today" and highlights the most recent site I've visited, which of course, is the one I just clicked on. The reason this is annoying is that when I'm browsing my history, there are usually 3 or 4 or more sites that I want to re-visit, usually all from around the same time frame. It becomes very tiresome to have to re-click on the correct month or week, and scroll, scroll, scroll, once again, each time I want to re-visit a site, because every time I click on a site it re-sends me to "Today." I wish there was someway to change my history settings so that it wouldn't do this and that, regardless of whatever websites I decide to visit, my history library always stays in the place where I last left it. I hope someone is able to understand what I'm trying to say. Thanks for any help you can provide and don't hesitate to ask for clarification!

Whenever I go to a forum; I scroll down to look at posts however the screen suddenly fuzzes up and goes a bit black meaning I can't see what to click or anything, when I move my mouse over a bit of the blackness the buttons that are supposed to be there come back, I keep repeating this (Have no choice) but it's getting annoying. I try highlighting it but that makes it go fully black straight after.

When typing in the "What's Happening?" field on Twitter, my Netbook (Intel Atom n450) cpu goes straight up to max frequency and heavy utilization and stays pegged there until, apparently, the whole SoC (System on Chip) crashes and screen flashes white. Also there is heavy lag as I enter characters faster than they get displayed. I installed Opera web-browser on my Netbook and typing on Twitter is just like typing in Notepad with Opera. I'm guessing that something about the way that Firefox processes the javascript of Twitter in regard to character counting/scanning etc. is causing unnecessarily extreme cpu load.
