When I right click on firefox window in my taskbar it shows a "recent" section that displays my recent downloads above the "close this window" and other options. I find this annoying and I would like to remove it. I already have set firefox to not remember my download history, but that didn't help.

Zoom is driving me nuts! I use multiple tabs and windows, and to maximize screen space I need to make some pages very small. In IE each window can be zoomed independently- but with firefox they all change if you change any window's zoom. I've tried NoSquint add-on and it adds site-specific zoom, which is still not what I need. Surely there's an add-on that allows each window to have its own zoom level.

Firefox 3.6.3 on my Mac (OS 10.6.3) enters my password to a website automatically (as set in Preferences)

I had to change a Username & Password for a site.

Firefox continues to enter the old UN & PW  despite a number of my attempts to change to the new ones.

How can I make this happen?

Thanks!

I don't know if this is a problem or a functionality request, but here goes: If the URL of a bookmarked page changes (e g due to site restructuring) I would like to be able to add the new bookmark in such a way that it replaces the old one, rather than getting added beside it. This is done in IE - if I add a bookmark with an already excisting name, I get a dialogue box asking me if I want to replace it. This doesn't seem to be the case in FF, though. So, is there some way to turn on his functionality (or a plug-in to add it), or will I just have to go ask the developers and hope they will consider it in the future?
