I use multiple search engines and would like to be able to change the active engine without having to open the menu and click the one I want. Is this possible? I assume that's what the "Keyword" field in the manager is for. I have assigned keywords but don't know how to use them.

I recently came to Firefox from IE due to many problems. Firefox is great and I don't have any of the old problems. I do miss one feature from IE that I cant find on Firefox. When looking at a web site, if the display isn't large enough, I was able to enlarge the page with a size selector in the lower right corner. Does Firefox have a similar selector?

Does the highlight feature exist in Firefox?

(If you have to go through pages of text in order to get to the results, it can be long to find...)

I keep getting the message telling me to enable third party cookies. The instructions for how to do so tell me to choose the options feature from the tools drop down menu, then to click on "privacy" and check a certain box that would enable cookies. This check box is not on the privacy menu. What do I do?

Been trying to get HTML5 video to work in Firefox 4 and 5. It doesn't work. I've used Fireogg to process the video but all I get is a big "X" on screen. The code I'm using works in Safari, Opera and Chrome. This has been going on for months now and I don't appreciate having to jump thru hoops to do such a simple thing for Firefox. It's absurd. Every other browser works. Check below for the code.

While I generally use Firefox, one of the features I find useful in Internet Explorer 8 is that "alt text" appears as a small popup on mouse-over. I've searched Firefox and Firefox Help to see if there was a feature that could be enabled for this, but have not found any references at all to alt-text. Can Firefox show "alt text"? If not, is there an add-on? If not, please submit this as a suggested feature to add in future releases.
