Firefox is completely useless when it comes to filling in forms and comments in Facebook and Picasa

Does anyone else have the maddening experience of filling in a comment, not just in FB but also in Picasa or any other "modern" interactive webpage, in which your changes… (read more)

Does anyone else have the maddening experience of filling in a comment, not just in FB but also in Picasa or any other "modern" interactive webpage, in which your changes are not saved and the page must be reloaded several times, the comment reentered, reloaded, reentered up to three or four times, before the damn thing "sticks????" I am SICK of having to write everything in a text editor, copy it, paste it, reload and then repeat and repeat. This is why people OD on pills. Can't you software engineers take a couple of years OFF and leave us all alone to work and enjoy the technology as it is until you go around "improving" it again and... screw it up worse than it was before??? GO AWAY! Stop upgrading. Enough is enough. Now. How much do you want to bet that this comment wont stick? I have it copied just in case. Stupid.

Most of the time when I am on a website and try to send out something to it, I get a window warning me that my output is going out unencrypted. I can't find any way to turn on encryption in Firefox. Is this a dangerous problem? If so, is there a way to fix it?

I keep having to sign in constantly even when I haven't closed firefox and even after I have only been on for about 5 or 10 minutes...Even after looking in the forum then going back to email I had to sign back in.... I have tried clearing cookies and tried editing settings but there wasn't anything that needed changing. Nothing has helped. Nothing on virus scan or spybot, either...This is driving me insane!!

I am not sure exactly what happened. Logged onto my computer and was greeted by a menu prompting me to download Firefox, as an alternative to Internet Explorer. I had always used Firefox before this event ... I am not sure which version ... and had accu,ulated a number of vital bookmarks. I was next informed of a recommendation to upgrade to the latest version (3.6), and naively did so without saving existing bookmarks. The download was successful, but ALL existing bookmarks were lost. Solutions made available at the HELP section do not apply.
