The same test using Safari or Chrome on a Mac results in: "This browser supports WebSocket". Same problem whether on OS X 10.6 or 10.7. When will Firefox 7 catch up to Safari and Chrome?

I open firefox it loads my home page, I click on the "+" in the tab bar to open a new tab and nothing happens, when I go to the drop down menu under file and select new tab no new tab is created. when I open a link from a web page it opens fine in a new tab (I have set the option to open new tab instead of new window when being redirected to a new site.) It worked fine last Thursday but not now - best of luck recreating - looking forward to your resolution - thank you - I am unsure about which plugins are installed nor where to locate that information sorry

Why doesn't Firefox 7 tutorials consider that people might be hearing impaird? You have a video about the position of the tabs which is useless to me because I am severely hearing impaired

Moreover, your register/login page frustrates my Roboform login manager. It fills the register form, when I am registered and will not fill in the login form. The login… (read more)

Moreover, your register/login page frustrates my Roboform login manager. It fills the register form, when I am registered and will not fill in the login form. The login form and the register form should be on different pages.

I understand that the increased use of video seems to offer shortcuts to information. But it is not a shortcut for hearing impaired or deaf people. If you have a tutorial video and you have a transcript of article that provides the same information, it should be readily visible so that hearing impaired/deaf people can immediately switch to it.

I understand that you're trying to tell me that I have more options if the tabs are on the top, but it's a disconnect for me and so I clicked on the link to get information about how to switch back to tabs just above the web screen. What I got was a page with more arguments about why I should accept tabs on the top.

I clicked on the video hoping that it would be a slide show type of video, instead I got someone talking who I can't hear.

Please direct me to instructions on how to put my tabs just above the web page.

Thanks

Why was the "I'm Feeling Lucky" functionality removed from the Firefox awesomebar in all releases after version 3.6?

In Firefox 3.6, when I type something specific, like "wikipedia steve jobs" into the url bar, I am taken directly to Wikipedia's page for Steve Jobs, and if I type something less specific, I am taken to a Google search results page for what I typed in the bar (unless it was a URL, obviously); in the current version of Firefox, though, I am taken to a Google search results page for whatever I type in (again, not a URL, obviously), even if the page I am seeking is obvious-- how can I avoid this extra step and regain the Firefox 3.6 "I'm Feeling Lucky" functionality?

When I receive an attached document (Word or OpenOffice), I click on it. I get a Norton Antivirus window that says it's clear and I click on the yellow Download button. Then nothing happens. 1. I don't get the windows that asked Open? or Save?. 2. The documents are not in the Download folder. 3. I reset the downloads to my Documents folder - nothing appears there either. 4. I search my iMac with the file names, and no results show up.
