Drop down boxes have not worked for the last few revisions of Firefox. I've tried eliminating all add ons etc. bit to no avail. It does not seem like this should be such a big problem to fix, since these objects used to work fine in the past. I really like Firefox otherwise and would hate to have to resort to another browser. The drop down box shown below does not work either, but that may be due to lack of content.

Okay I just updated it to 12 (it did it on it's own and I never clicked apply update) and I looked at the one on the front of the site and the layout is different yet mine looks like 11 still? Is it supposed to be the same as 11s and that's a different version or what?

Crashed happened immediately after opening, even in Safe Mode. I downloaded the newest version of Firefox but that did not fix the problem. (Those early encoding problems I saw were bars on 7's, etc) Now I'm seeing encoding problems with Safari, which has now started to crash regularly on me. Need to finish a second thesis soon and this is very bad.

I like to turn my cookies on and off fairly often. Every time I do this, I have to click on the upper-left corner, then choose Options --> Options --> Privacy tab --> check "Accept cookies from sites". Then I have to repeat this to un-check the box when I don't want cookies. And sometimes I don't remember what the current setting of that checkbox is, so I have to do this procedure just to see what it says.

Is there any way to put the "Accept cookies from sites" checkbox on a toolbar (or on the status bar, or anything like that)? I'm hoping this is a simple customization that might be possible without requiring an add-on. -- Thanks!

In Firefox the link comes up as http://www.castleparkgolfclub.co.uk/\Cmembersarea\media\Opens_Form_2012.pdf and I get the message Object not found, error 404. If I change all slashes to forward ones the link does work - that is how the link comes up in IE instantly. This is our golf club's website and it would be a pity if people cannot find the forms for our opens!
