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.

How do I make a new tab open all the say to the right, as it used to, instead of just to the LEFT of the last tab?

 I have 6 tabs set up and have become very accustomed to the position they’re in.  When doing a specific task for my job, a 7th tab opens up.  It has always opened all the way to the right.  When I’m done reading the information it gives me, I just quickly “x” it out to return working.  Yesterday I noticed that this 7th tab was not opening up all the way to the right.  It was opening in the next-to-last position to the right.  This might not seem like a problem, but when I go to close it, I’m so used to x-ing out the one to the far right, that I’ve been x-ing out a tab that I need.

So the question: How can I get the new tab that opens to appear all the way on the right again? Again, this is not adding a new tab. If I add a new tab to search for something, it does open all the way to the right.

I unclicked history in sync options within the firefox sync preferences and reset the sync from my local data. To check this I used firefox home on my ipod touch 2g using ios4, signing out and signing back in(supposed to do a full clear of local data). Everything else updated to reflect changes I had made: the history remained the same. I am using firefox 3.6.6, firefox sync version 1.4.1 on windows 7 home premium.

Firefox 3.6.6 is not responsive when Flash plug-in is run

Since upgrading to 3.6.6 I noticed a severe degradation of performance on a page with Flash. It takes about 10-20 sec for Firefox to open a new link from such a page or perform other actions. Scrolling the page out of an embedded Flash object frees up CPU and makes it normal back again. Before the upgrade I did not have such a severe problem with the same page, although Flash did take substantial CPU power to render the animation.

I would like this problem fixed or learn how to downgrade to 3.5.x (not sure which version I had)

Any email address is converted to a link, Most notably, the example address at mail.google.com between the username and password entry boxes.

Normally, this would be something to be ignored, at the worst, but when I pressed tab to switch from username to password, it went to the email link. I could learn a new habit of pressing tab twice, but I'm lazy. :P

I am running Windows 7 on an HP Pavilion laptop. For the last 10 days or so, when I open FF, it partially crashes. The toolbars I have work and are clickable as is the menus and close/minimize buttons. The tabs become locked, if I have anything hovered, the tooltip hangs as well as anything on the webpage because inaccessible. The only fix, is to open it and hurry to try to click to change the page and seems to "force" FF to work and as long as it's open and I get the click in - it runs just fine and dandy for everything including flash. It's just upon opening a new window for FF. Sometimes it will take 5 or 6 window openings to "catch" and move pages. It affects pop up windows like my banking time out, where the window locks so I cannot click continue, but can close it or push toolbar buttons.
