For about 2 weeks I have been unable to leave feedback on ebay. Firefox brings up login page but will not accept password. I am having the same problem with my yahoo email. It will not accept my passwords, so I have to use IE to login to these accounts.

On yahoo email, it accepted my login id, but not password. This started on one account about two weeks ago. Today when I tried to login to another yahoo email, which worked yesterday, but it would not accept my password on this account. I bought some items on ebay and wanted to leave feedback. When I clicked on the leave feedback button a sign in window appeared, this should not have happened, when I tried to sign in, it would not accept my password. I called ebay and was told they have had many complaints from customers using firefox when trying to leave feedback. The help desk suggested I try with Internet Explorer, I did, and it worked perfectly. I have been using firefox for a long time and really do not want to go back to IE, but when I cannot sign into my accounts, I can't, so I will have to use IE. As far as I know, no new programs have been installed on this computer.

It used to be that i could make changes such as sorting of folder bookmark listings in "organize bookmarks" and they would occur immediately in my Firefox browser. Now, for some reason, every time i make these changes in the Organize Bookmarks screen, nothing i've changed has any effect on my Firefox browser. There is no place in "organize bookmarks" to force a save, so there's no way for me to implement the changes. Don't understand why this worked before and does not now.

i was running an older version of the aquatint theme, i think it was 3.0.2, i really like it, i deliberately did not update and had to run 'override compatiblity' at some stage, it was working fine, until i accidentally updated. Now i've got a slightly different version with small font and a weird google search bar. I want to revert but how ? there's no option in the add-on menu.

thank you

Here is a picture of exactly what i'm talking about:

http://i37.tinypic.com/mtovar.jpg

It just started appearing a little while ago. My anti-virus software hasn't picked up anything unusual so I don't think it's spyware or anything like that. However I can't find a way to get rid of it. I've tried searching for help on Google itself (not using this toolbar), but no luck.

I am able to access the internet, but none of the search engines like Google, Yahoo or Bing will work. the page will not load. I get the error message:

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure  that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Firefox 3.5.11 When I browse a site that is JSON, it asks if I want to save as a file or open with another app. I checked Options - Applications, and that's the only choice for JSON files. I thought Native JSON was supported in 3.5. Shouldn't a page be able to display JSON by now? Do I still need to add a plugin like JSONView to see JSON types correctly?
