Why is Firefox 9.0 MUCH slower than 8.1? Just downloaded and tried it and am used to dramatic improvements instead of this!

Just updated to FF9. I am no longer just disappointed, but ticked off that the the bug that causes Save As to remember where the last file was saved from individual sites instead of just where the last file was saved to has not been fixed. Why is this? How hard can it be to fix it?

For example, suppose I save an image from Motifake to Folder A and an image from ihasahotdog to Folder C. Then I go back to Motifake and save an image. Instead of Folder C, Save As opens to Folder A instead of Folder C. I direct Save As to save the image to Folder A. The I go back to ihasahotdog, save an image and instead of Folder A, Save As opens to Folder C.

Also, this bug happens with all filetypes, not just images.

FF's developers know that the "added feature" that started with FF7 that causes FF to remember the last download save folder based on the domain in the URL instead of using the last folder saved to annoys a lot of users both directly and with the lack of preference to turn it on/off. Yet they won't fix it.

Why can't they understand that no matter how much of a good idea they think it is, most users hate it and do not want it? And what's with this "It's being worked on" B.S.? They added it in one version update, why can't they take it out as quickly as it was added?

Using a webfont in a CSS, I discovered that FF9 renders wrong the ligatures "ff", "fi", "ffi" in that font, totally omitting them -- the word "office" becomes "oce" on screen.

I did set up test page, in the reference below, showing that behavior. The page shows correct with FF8, FF3.6, Chrome 16, Opera 11.60, IE 8.

On the Times newspaper site I was using December 19 some of the features stopped working. Has Firefox made an update? I tried downloading Firefox 9.0 but the problems persist. At the end of the news articles is a comments section but this no longer displays in Firefox. There is a SuDoku feature in the Puzzles section which is no longer accessible by Firefox.

  • Installed Firefox 9
  • I am running Windows 7 64-bit
  • I have Firefox pinned to the task bar.
  • When Firefox opens, there is a new icon that opens up on the task bar. Normally, Firefox would open within the icon that is pinned to the task bar.
  • When I close Firefox, the extra icon goes away.
  • Firefox is acting like the icon that is pinned to the task bar is not even there.

Most websites, such as newspapers, experience an overlapping of characters, which prevent proper reading of the sites, or prevent access to sites which I would like to access. I recently starting using Firefox again, after experiencing problems with Chrome 16. This was the reason I switched from Firefox to Chrome in the first place. Chrome worked fine until vs. 16. Thanks

The text is invisible on 50% of webpages. To solve this I have changed the colours of pages under Content - Colours - Text and Background. On the other 50% of webpages the new colours I have chosen have invisible text (reverting to allowing web page colours fixes this for these pages). So I have to keep reverting back and forth depending on where I go. I am using WinXP SP3. My video card is ATI Radeon EAH 4350 Silent. This has occured for all versions of Firefox since at least 3.0, perhaps older as well.

On this particular page I am typing on right now, leaving it alone will allow me to see everything. If I use my own colours (black background, white text) the text I type in the box is invisible but I can see everything else.

What can I do to not have invisible text and not have to change back and forth?

Firefox 4.0 and up has gotten rid of the bottom bar. In this bar you can preview the address of links if you hover over them. Now there is only a popup that does the same. The popup is too small and hard to read compared to the bar that used to be there. This is the only reason I continue to use 3.x. I do not wish to enlarge all of Firefox's text. Is there a solution for this? Perhaps enlarging only that popup AND/or putting a coloured background for it rather than white. Or just somehow restoring the bottom bar as it was?

Basically, I was downloading a game from Game Agent and I accidentally quit Firefox. This stopped the download and I was not allowed to resume it, forcing me to spend $30 to buy the same game AGAIN to get a new download file. Is there a way to add a warning box to Firefox that says something like: "Are you sure you want to quit Firefox? Files are downloading" when I try to quit?
