I updated to Firefox 18.0 and noticed the picture images are centered with a black background. I prefer to have the older style with the white background.

I tried the old image style 2.2--but it does not work for Firefox 18.0.

I don't know which update did it... but I noticed today for the first time that Firefox "find" function (CMD + F on the mac) is no longer case sensitive!

Lord Jesus, Hallelujah! I can't tell you how many times I was looking for some text on a big page and was stymied because the word started a sentence, or was in all caps, and the silly case-sensitive search function wouldn't pick it up. I almost (ALMOST) switched to Chrome just because of this craziness. But now I don't have to.

To whomever fixed this in whatever update, bravo, sir, bravo. Or madam. Bravo, whoever you are!

For years my URL address on the Navigation Bar has stretched out far enough to allow most of the URL to show. Then, after a Reload Icon, the Search Engines (Bing, Dictionary, etc.) box would be about a third of the width that the URL box. After that, the rest of the bar is used for Home/Bookmarks/History/etc. Now, without knowing when it occurred, the URL Box is too narrow to see but a few letters of the URL that is entered and its drop down box is the same. I can find no way to widen it. All is working well, but I would like to have the displays appearing as before. I have kept up all the most recent version updates and have version 20 presently. I don't think this happened due to the update ------- at least not immediately. At the same time this occurred, my Bookmarks Toolbar vanished. I made sure the bar was checked, and manually put all the bookmarks I had back in. It is OK now. I thought way back that one could put the cursor at a point on the side of the Navigation Bar's boxes and get an arrow icon that would extend or narrow the boxes. I am not sure of this, but I know it doesn't work that way now. Any help would surely be appreciated! Thank you.

I use a non standard, non-QWERTY keyboard layout, based on Developer's Dvorak by Roland Kauffman (herefore "ddvorak"). Keyboard shortcuts appear to be messed up and I cannot figure out how to make them work. On a standard web page, hitting CTRL+C opens the bookmark library. Hitting CTRL+I (I is the button which gets the 'c' character under ddvorak) opens a lateral "search in bookmark" sidebar. Oddly enough, I can copy-paste with no problem from/to input field such as the one I'm using to write this.

I noticed that contestual menus don't have keyboard shortcuts even (but shortcuts are present in the "Edit" menu).

Any pointers?
