Sometimes after using the master password to access an account during a given firefox session I would like to "revoke" this ability for automatic access (i.e. require typing the master password again) without having to end the current session and restart firefox.

While it is nice to only have to type the master password once per session, there are times when after starting some action I would like to leave the browser unattended for a short time but prevent others from accessing sensitive information at other sites if they do not know my master password. Note this is not the same as "locking the browser." Presently the only way I know to force this is to kill the current session and restart the browser but this is not very satisfactory if I actually want to stay connected (authorized) at a particular site. I would hope that adding a button on the security tab to "require master password for current session" would be a simple fix to implement? Thank you for your attention.

Firefox is not responding to scroll requests sent by my Lenovo USB optical mouse via the Scrollpoint. (FYI the Scrollpoint functions pretty much like the Trackpoint on a Thinkpad keyboard, giving it 360 degree scrolling much more fluidly than any wheel on an ordinary wheel mouse.) The Scrollpoint commands are recognized quite well in just about every other program I use, including word processors, email programs, and especially other browsers such as Opera. I have, in fact, switched to Opera as my main browser until this feature issue is resolved in Firefox. Thank you for your support.

I'm running XP64 pro. The scripts on Yahoo will stall FF after a few minutes. Often I get the popup message that a plugin script has stalled and asks if I want to prevent seeing this again from the site. That's nice but every page on Yahoo is unique. So the stall happens on every page that isn't closed after a short while. The more stalls I get the slower my computer runs even though I use task manager to kill stalled processes. Then I have to reboot to clear out the FF remnants. Is there a way to kill remnants of stalled scripts without rebooting? Often FF crashes and asks me to send a report to Mozilla. Seems to me you guys should have a feature to enable extended logging for inclusion in crash reports. I have sent many requests to fix the problem. If you guys can't fix the root cause of the problem then can you at least provide a decent workaround so the memory doesn't get cluttered up with orphaned threads sucking up all my CPU power?

We have run into what seems like a serious closure bug in Firefox 22.0.

The simple following code executes fine in IE and chrome etc. but fails in a very scary way in FireFox - it thinks the function is undefined !!!

if (true) {

   test();
   function test()  {
       alert("success")
   }

}

If the code is executed outside of the if statement (or if just the function definition is moved outside the if statement) everything is ok.

The same error occurs (not defined) inside other closures like do .. while etc.

We are scared. What did we miss?

I disabled both of the Firefox Add-Ons I use (NoScript 2.1.0.1 & Ad Block Plus 1.3.6) and rebooted the machines, but that had no effect. This problem has been repeated on multiple PCs, running XP Pro (sp3), Vista Business (sp2) & Server 2003 (sp2), right after upgrading to Firefox 4, so the problem is definitely related to Firefox 4.

Both browsers (Firefox 21 & IE) installed on my 64-bit Widows XP desktop refuse to start either from clicking the desktop icon, the start bar menu, or the executables themselves. What does happen is that all icons disappear from the screen for some 15-30 seconds, then the icons are returned to the screen, and the last informative message displayed from the system tray at start up is repeated.

Deleting Firefox and reinstalling will start the browser as the last step, but when the new copy is closed it will not start. Also just rerunning the installation download without deleting Firefox will "Upgrade" and start as a last step but when the new copy is closed it can not be restarted. Running restore on the new copy has on apparent effect on the ultimate inability to restart after closing.

I only tried the IE browser after being unable to start Firefox (its ordinarily only used by the MS update procedure) and have not investigated either reinstalling or repairing it.
