Every time i open a Firefox window i have zoom in the window via the menu bar (or Ctrl ++). I have to do this every time after I open a new window, or a new tab. It is annoying and tiring. How can I set the level zooming in, so that it will apply for all tabs and windows, and save it?

I closed my file/edit/view etc and the address bar, and now there's no way to open them back up again. No way to get to internet tools, etc. Whenever i right click anywhere (the same thing i did to close them) i either get options for tabs (as i'm clicking on the tabs bar, the highest point in firefox now that there's no other bars) or just options for web pages when i right click them. there's nothing i see that i can do without reinstalling and losing all of my settings. Help?

When trying to forward and e-mail or retrieve it from "drafts" more often than not only the heading will appear and the space where the body of the e-mail belongs is empty. If I try repeatedly - going out and then back in to the e-mail - I can eventually get it and successfully send it on. If I send it while the field is blank the person receiving it will just get a blank e-mail except for the address and subject line.

Firefox crashes 100% on espn.com and several other sites, it seemed to occur after an update to flash. Using the Mozilla site, I have checked the plug-ins and it says everything is up to date or it says unknown on certain plug ins which I don't use. My flash is listed as being up to date. I have the latest Firefox release 3.6.6 with VISTA.

The Search Engine Bar offers and collects Search Engines seemingly at will, and personal choice settings are not retained. Until recently it always held my Yahoo Engine as my primary, but now it has been taken over by Ask. Even if I delete it, it returns and takes over. Has Mozilla made some kind of arrangement to allow this behavior? Sorry, but it sure looks like someone made a dominance deal to have this forced on people. Why don't the choices we make stick? This is incredibly annoying. If you have some kind of back door fix involving digging through code to re-write, please don't bother. I appreciate the creativity but I'd rather have this working as it should to begin with. And if you're selling out to forced advertising, come clean.
