In the Find box, sometimes the search skips over my word of interest before I fully type in the word.

I would like to search the old fashioned way in the Find box. Let me completely type my search word and hit Enter before the search commences.


Is this possible?


I do not have the "Search as You Type" option turned on, which really does not apply to the Find box.

Hello, At some point I've started to have problems with FF displaying css shadows and fullscreen videos.

1) Here's an example of how css shadows look like on a variety of sites when openned in FF: http://xmages.net/show.php/2871278_css-png.html . Chromium displays the same sites perfectly.

2) There's some kind of a problem with the switching to the fullscreen mode. For example at imdb.com when I click the fullscreen mode button - the video itself starts underneath the browser window and can be switched to with ALT+TAB. Again - Chromium works fine there.

Mozila Firefox is my default browser.I need it with fully working functions. I can understand when a new final release comes ,for some days few extensions and plugins may not work.But the solution may come if you provide a better platform to other third party vendors as you take out beta releases. So as soon as your final release comes out we excited people about your new release never get disappointment with not supported necessary extensions. you can understand extensions are life of a browser.

                                                                                                    Thanks.

Can I disable the resubmit when I hit the back button

After submitting a form (say a search form) and then clicking on a link on the results ("action") page I wish to go back to the form page and change the form criteria. However, when I hit the back button Firefox always wants to re-post the form data before I can go back any further in the history. Very clunky. Is there a way to prevent this re-post and just have it open the cached page?

Google Chrome does this nicely by just displaying a page in lieu of the form's "action" page that gives you the option to re-submit or you can simply click back to go back to the form page. I don't think Firefox should force you to resubmit a form if you are just trying to navigate backwards through your history.

I used to get around this by using the split back button to choose the form page directly, but the FF4/FF5 default navigation buttons don't have this any longer (that I can find anyway).

Is there an about:config setting that will prevent this forced re-submit?

Is there back-support for FF 4.x? If not, why not?

I'd like to roll back to FF4.x until my add-ons are updated for 5.0, but I can't find 4.0 on the mozilla website (even though I can find 3.6.x). Is there a plan to have 4.0 support, or has it been so completely superseded by 5.0 that it's actually unsafe to use?

As general feedback, I'd like to suggest that the compatibility check for add-ons happen *before* confirming the update: it's just unnecessarily frustrating when something breaks and it's too late to go back.

I had toolbars for Zynga and Inbox Dollars. These give me direct feeds for my accounts and I really want them back. Do I have to go back to the previous version and wait until they are compatible with Firefox? I love Firefox!

Ever since I switched to FF 4 and now in FF 5, when I open FF I will get 1 window in the WinXP format (no orange button) and multiple windows in Win7 format (with orange button). When FF crashes, I get the apologetic "couldn't restore these" window and it lists multiple empty windows. After I delete them from the restore window and restore my XP window everything works fine. Once I start accessing sites that use "kill windows" such as banks and brokerages, the windows start reappearing again. Can you fix this?

By the way the text in drop down boxes is vibrating in FF4 and FF5. Can you fix this too?
