Suddenly I can no longer open my comcast email. I tried deleting cookies and emptying the cache, but neither helped. I can see the preview of the inbox, but not the whole inbox, and I cannot open any email. Help! I hate having to use IE!

When I click on "open entire inbox" the font seems to get very large briefly,then it returns to the normal size.I can't see my whole inbox or open anything!

I WANT to be able to see ALL of the URL and address in the address bar! You changed it so the address is hidden or darkened without any option to see it clearly without highlighting it. Making vision impaired people blind to things such as what area of the site they are on and https:// vs http:// This is annoying and wrong. How do I change it back without a retro back to FF 3.6?

Is it possible to make Firefox use the built-in Windows certificate store? Obviously this would only apply to Firefox for Windows, but it makes it a lot easier for an organization to trust internally-generated root certificates that can be pushed out with Windows GPO's. IE has this (obviously) but Chrome also uses the Windows Certificate Store. I know there is a command-line tool (certutil) to modify the Firefox database, but what a pain! :)

Thanks
