This is really a minor issue, and I think it might just end up being a new feature that needs to be added to the next version of Firefox. But my problem is, oftentimes, I'm browsing my history library looking for sites that I looked for maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago. I scroll down quite a ways, eventually find what I'm looking for, and then click on the site to open it. The problem I have, which is really merely an annoyance, is that when I click on one page, my library immediately exits out of whatever time frame I'm currently in and sets the time frame to "Today" and highlights the most recent site I've visited, which of course, is the one I just clicked on. The reason this is annoying is that when I'm browsing my history, there are usually 3 or 4 or more sites that I want to re-visit, usually all from around the same time frame. It becomes very tiresome to have to re-click on the correct month or week, and scroll, scroll, scroll, once again, each time I want to re-visit a site, because every time I click on a site it re-sends me to "Today." I wish there was someway to change my history settings so that it wouldn't do this and that, regardless of whatever websites I decide to visit, my history library always stays in the place where I last left it. I hope someone is able to understand what I'm trying to say. Thanks for any help you can provide and don't hesitate to ask for clarification!

Whenever I go to a forum; I scroll down to look at posts however the screen suddenly fuzzes up and goes a bit black meaning I can't see what to click or anything, when I move my mouse over a bit of the blackness the buttons that are supposed to be there come back, I keep repeating this (Have no choice) but it's getting annoying. I try highlighting it but that makes it go fully black straight after.

When typing in the "What's Happening?" field on Twitter, my Netbook (Intel Atom n450) cpu goes straight up to max frequency and heavy utilization and stays pegged there until, apparently, the whole SoC (System on Chip) crashes and screen flashes white. Also there is heavy lag as I enter characters faster than they get displayed. I installed Opera web-browser on my Netbook and typing on Twitter is just like typing in Notepad with Opera. I'm guessing that something about the way that Firefox processes the javascript of Twitter in regard to character counting/scanning etc. is causing unnecessarily extreme cpu load.

Despite forums galore and answers galore, the continuing Flash Plugin is still crashing. This happens on Safari, Chrome and IE as well as Firefox. It's obviously an Adobe issue but no one is addressing that. Considering the major consternation over the web, can we (the world) have a resolution please!

I have checked the option to warn me when a page attempts to redirect or reload, but some redirects are still happening without warning or approval. The redirects are solicitous in nature and hijack me away from a page that I was viewing without me clicking on anything. When it happens, reloading the original page sometimes results in another redirect but sometimes it doesn't. It seems pretty much random. I can only guess that the redirect is somehow imbedded in a banner or something - though I really no very little about how web pages work, so who knows. A few days ago I tried to reste the option by unchecing it and restarting firefox, and tehn rechecking and restarting firefox again. But today I got redirected. It's really a minor annoyance and it doesn't happen often, but I thought throw it out there. Thanx!
