Greetings,

Firefox used to automatically fill in the username and password when I went to a particular log-in form. Now I have to start typing the username, or press the down-arrow key to view them. How can I get Firefox to automatically show my username and password again?

Thanks, Shane.

My location bar has vanished. I also don't have a Forward or Back arrow. I tried updating but it didn't help. Anyone know where it's gone? (I've got Version 7 and Windows Vista, I think.)

I can't think of any more details, but I used to have normal Firefox with a location bar, and now I don't. At the top of my page I have "most visited" and a tab bar. At… (read more)

I can't think of any more details, but I used to have normal Firefox with a location bar, and now I don't. At the top of my page I have "most visited" and a tab bar. At the bottom I have "secure search". I'm having to get to all URLS by searching for them.

Firefox 7.0.1. Windows7 Pro 64. Yesterday I was streaming audio from sky.fm and noticed that the navigation toolbar back arrow stopped responding and has not responded since. FF restart, computer reboot, same problem. Private browsing has never been used, i.e. the history file is fine. Using it is the only way to go back to a previous page or site. The only visual indication that the arrow has been clicked is that the firefox icon in the tool tray dims. All other indications are normal. The present url is displayed, and FF is responsive to any link clicks going forward--just not back. Any ideas? Thanks, John.

Recently switched over from Internet Explorer. One of things I liked about IE was if I adjusted some of the tabbed browsing settings, whenever I opened a link in a new tab, it opened it at the very end of the tab bar. No tab grouping, no opening next to the current tab. Seems like a pretty simple thing, but I just can't figure out how to set that up in Firefox.

Any suggestions on how to take care of that? Thanks!

Every web page and the top of the bookmark sidebar when open does not respond to the mouse. Everything above the browser wind seems to work fine, and everything below the top 1 1/2 inches at top of page seems fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 7.0.1 without any change. The initial update to 7.0.1 did not seem to have any issues, and I don't know exactly when this changed.

Example: I want to watch a video on startrek.com. You could either make it to full screen/ But my preference is to zoom on it. With Internet Explorer you can go down to the right lower part of the screen and click it to go from 100 percent to 125. On firefox on view the zoom it just makes the text larger. The viewer for the video is the same.

Thanks.

When I attempt to fill in a form, as I type,a Firefox will offer suggestions as to what to fill in. For example, the web form asks for a date. I want to enter 5/25/2011. As I have filled out this form before, Firefox offers suggestions of 5/25/2009, 5/25/2010, and 5/25/2011. I no longer will be entering 5/25/2009 or 5/25/2010, so I will not need those suggestions any more. How do I get rid of them? As it's annoying to have them constantly showing up. ( The same thing occurs if you make a mistake, for example, in typing an e-mail address. The mistake keeps showing up as a suggestion. )

Have now moved to new laptop Dell with Windows 7 and have installed Firefox again - tried to restore setting but it didn't work so have restored my addons and setting and customisation. All appears to be working fine except that "find on page" doesn't appear to be working at all.
