Non-Admin users on XP are not being shown the option to trigger an update. The mozilla update service is installed but as normal users aren't able to start the update process it never gets as far as starting it.

When a new update is available a link to the download page is shown in the About box rather than a button to start the update.

I usually have 4 firefox windows open with about 50 tabs. NORMALLY. Never had a problem till recently and EXCESSIVELY today. I thought it was a flash problem because everytime I would try playing battlepirates on Facebook it would freeze. So, I tried closing some tabs after I restored. Then I noticed it would freeze also while just closing some tabs.

So far today it has frozen ABOUT 13-15 times. Note: CPU usage is not as high as normal. only about 300Meg I USUALLY run as high as 900 Meg- 1.2 Gig

The newly implemented support (in v14.0.1 as far as I can tell)) for native OSX Lion full screen support makes fullscreen pretty useless in a multi monitor setup. With the previous version it was possible to continue using the other monitors for other tasks.

Is it possible to disable the support in some way to actually have useful fullscreen support again, i.e. the way it worked before v14.0.1? Otherwise such an option is needed in my opinion.

The newly implemented (v14.0.1 as far as I can tell) support for native OSX Lion fullscreen supports makes it very useless in a multi monitor setup. The old full screen support let me use the fullscreen for Firefox (and not letting window widgets get in the way) and continue using other applications on the other screens.

Is it possible to disable the OSX Lion full screen support? Otherwise I think it would be a welcome addition to the next update.
