I have had few problems with Firefox which I have been using since I first had a computer...just a few minor things which were easily sorted out. Since I downloaded Firefox 9.0.1, I have about 3 to 5 minutes to enjoy it before it crashes. I restart over and over and the same thing happens. Sadly, I am forced to use Chrome for now and want my Firefox back. I hope you can help.

I think I have asked the question as best I can. On Internet Explorer, I could click on the lower right and change from 100% to 150%.

Given my eyesight, this change would be enormously helpful.

The Search Engine Bar offers and collects Search Engines seemingly at will, and personal choice settings are not retained. Until recently it always held my Yahoo Engine as my primary, but now it has been taken over by Ask. Even if I delete it, it returns and takes over. Has Mozilla made some kind of arrangement to allow this behavior? Sorry, but it sure looks like someone made a dominance deal to have this forced on people. Why don't the choices we make stick? This is incredibly annoying. If you have some kind of back door fix involving digging through code to re-write, please don't bother. I appreciate the creativity but I'd rather have this working as it should to begin with. And if you're selling out to forced advertising, come clean.

What the blazes is this coolchaser.com stuff which is now the default search given when I try to search through the address bar? How do I get it to return to google? I do not like the coolchaser search bar, as it never has the information I want. Plus, what happened to entering part of the address, then typing control plus enter to finish the address and send it onwards?

When I click on feedback (either happy or sad), Firefox brings me to a page that says, "Oh! So, you want to offer us feedback on the next version of Firefox. Thank you, but you'll need to be a part of our Beta Program," (https://input.mozilla.com/download). I also tried uninstalling the beta and reinstalling it, but I received the same message.

To join, simply go to our download page and get the latest Firefox Beta!
