Why won't Firefox open my iGoogle page as a default, it makes me log in each time, and never did that until I updated to 7.0.1?

I long ago selected iGoogle as my home page. It opened automatically with my gmail and news gadgets intact. When I upgraded to 7.0.1 beta, it stopped loading the page automatically. I have to log in to the page each time I start Firefox or open a new window. Also, on startup, no screen offers the opportunity to restore previous sessions. The option to do so from the History menu is grayed out, so I can't return to my home page that way.

Hey there, I have been using Firefox for a few years with out any troubles. Then I updated to 7 last night. And since then Firefox has been more or less un-useable. The issue happens when I have about 3 or 4 tabs open and browsing in each one. Firefox has trouble loading up a site and then it can not load any other site in the tabs. I am not talking about small sites, but gmail, msn, netflix, engadget, CNN, ect. This has NEVER happened before. I have tried to disable all addon and start in safe mode only to see the same thing happen. It even happened to this help page.

It almost as if when a site is slow to load something, it cause any new site not to load from that point on. The fix is to always go back to the offend tab. Stop it and all other tabs. Then try again.

I opened up IE 9 and tested the same URLS and sure enough they did not have this issue.

Any ideas?

Hi,

I've forgotten my forum username. Resetting the password sends me a new password but that's useless without my username.

I can't set up a new account because it says "an account with that e-mail address already exists".

I can't use my e-mail address to log in either.

So I'veborrowed a friend's e-mail, but how can I set up or restore my account on my e-mail address?

Thanks,

Evan

Is this problem with Firefox in general or some add-on.

I have enabled "check my spelling as I type". via Tools/Options/Advanced/General.

But it is not working. I toggled off and on this option, restarted FF with the option enabled, restarted FF with it disabled. Nothing seems to work.

In config, layout.spellcheckDefault, the default is set to1. It toggles between 1 and 0 when I enable/disable this option as above.

Any fixes for this bug ?
