I want to delete some suggested USER IDs so when I try to log on to sites such as Verizon e-mail, incorrect suggestions (due to typing errors, old IDs, etc.) are no longer displayed.

There's a help page on how to add or delete user profiles, but that's not relevant. [Note: the "delete" feature, as written, appears as though it will delete ALL profiles.] I don't want to delete a profile; I just want to edit it to remove invalid user IDs.

Hello, I have this problem.

The website's NAME is on TOP of the tabs, meaning I cannot see some tabs because the text is in the way. -This site "Ask a Question | Firefox Help" is covering the tabs.

Also, I can't click on any tabs unless i click the very bottom of it. Meaning in most cases, I cannot change tabs unless i find the 1mm of space that accepts my click. If I click in the middle of the tab, nothing happens.

Here is a picture of my problem.

as you can see, it is difficult to read the Website Name is very difficult to read, and the tabs cannot be read as well.

Please recommend a fix, I switched to using Chrome because of this problem.

I agreed to be a "beta update channel" person a long time ago when I was rarely using Firefox.

Now two things have changed: I am restricted to 5G a month (both up and download). I am switching to Firefox as my default browser.

Someone told me that I need to make sure I disenroll from any apps that relay usage information back to the developers. Because that is one way I can "leak" MB out of my monthly allotment.

Please understand that I am an amateur computer user and this might seem like a ridiculous question.

The bottom line is that I just want the regular version of Firefox, not the beta tester version.

Almost always, when I enter a logon password at a site, if Firefox has not asked to Remember it before, it will prompt the question, "Remember this password?' Then it disappears completely God only knows where, never to be heard from again. I would like to view a list of the passwords and locations that Firefox has saved (Remembered) but the location does not appear in any context menu or anywhere else. Where are my passwords?

I tried the answers previously given and found the following answers: (1) Create an allow cookie exception (Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: Exceptions) to keep such a cookie, especially for secure websites and if cookies expire when Firefox is closed. (2) Do not use Clear Recent History to clear the "Cookies" and the "Site Preferences". I'm using Firefox 8 beta 4 on a Win 2K system and I can't find a "Cookies: Exceptions" option under "Privacy." I also can't find "clear recent history." If the latter is the default option I need to know what to do to avoid using it.
