There are numerous themes and personnas to pick from, but they are not managed by Firefox. The chances of acquiring a virus from one of these is probable, so I'm wondering if Mozilla uses a filter for these features.

I have FF set to delete all my info when i close it. passwords, forms, history the whole thing. but for some reason lately i have noticed that after i close it and then run it again and click the pull down for the address bar the link to access my routers web config page is always there. no matter how many times i try to delete it or clean my cache, history etc... it is always in the pull down. i find this odd and don't know how to stop doing this.

Firefox automatically updated itself to version 3.6.7 on even though it is not out yet as a stable release. The about page says it's version 3.6.7 without any mention of "beta" anywhere.

Second tab opens every time when FF opens and intermittently as long as I have FF open. These tabs always what me to save Registry Repair software. I have tried to back track the sites in the address bar but to no avail. One lead me to a bot site that was not available, the second lead to an adult dating site. Ran virus check and anti spy ware with some malware that was removed but it did not change anything.

Using XP Pro SP3 and FireFox 3.6.7, but has been slow for a while now. If I disable Norton ToolBar 4.6 (from NIS 2010) it is OK but IE 8 is fine. What happens is that GMAIL logs in and just hangs for a while. Even B of A or the Norton site. Even my ISP's site is VERY slow. A lot of forums are slow as well. Seems like sites that need a log-in have this issue.
