When I'm on any website and I click anywhere in the website there is a blinking bar - sorry, don't know the technical term - like you would find in any new document waiting for the next character to appear to the left of it. It's almost as if FF - not the super-team - want me to add test to any page I find but it is just a weird mistake.

I assume it's because of this glitch (assuming) that when I go to press the up or down arrow keys it no longer cascades the screen smoothly like a parade of content; instead it just hops from top to middle to bottom and that's when it does anything. What gives?

Whenever I download something, especially smaller files such as a .jpg or .torrent, Firefox scans the download for viruses. In theory this is a good thing. In practice, at least for me, it means my browser is locked up for as long as 2 minutes (average is closer to about 10 seconds) while it scans the file that I have ZERO concern over a virus in the first place. Now, it's entirely possible that because I'm not a gaming nerd my computer is "slow" by elitist standards (2gHz is slow?! 2mB RAM is slow?!), but that is neither here nor there; I want this "service" gone and I want it gone now.

I have tried all of the suggestions given by FF in order to remove Bing from my computer but nothing seems to work. I would appreciate some advise. For instance when I go to add and remove programs I can't even find Bing listed. Looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks.

At times I run across an image that I want to "save" but it has a link attached to it, usually a link to the site's home page.

When the link is there I am not given an option to save the image, just options relating to the link.

We've a new software which always opens a pop-up window when clicking on the Java links. The content of such a re-sizable window perfectly fits into a new tab. I'd like to force those new windows into a new tab. Pop-up blocker is active and that internal site is in the exception list. So it would be nice to have an option field for that in the general settings or in the Pop-up blocker settings. This is no bug, but could be a new feature of Firefox (like in IE). Thanks &

Kind regards, Peter Marbler

Whenever this starts occuring, the status bar will also start flickering between showing link's target href value and nothing, and tooltips (that would normally pop up on hover) appear briefly then disappear. The same thing happens with Javascript dropdown menus, which make it nearly impossible then to navigate a Java-based site.

I run Firefox on one desktop replacement laptop (Dell Inspiron 9400), one netbook (Asus Eee 1000), and one PC (the one I'm making this report from) and all of them have the same problem, even when I did a complete uninstall and reinstall of FF, and even when using different combinations of extensions.

Identical prblem reported here, but with Ubuntu:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/87043

but no solution. I'm completely stumped, and increasingly annoyed.

I sometimes see a video on a website that I'd like to save. I'd expect to click on it, and hit [copy], and [paste] it in a folder. Or [Save as...], and give it a name and address. But no: no can do. Is there a utility or plug-in I need, or is there a Firefox feature I'm unaware of? I'm running Windows Vista, on a dialup, so once I download something I'd rather keep it than do it again.
