Followed FAQ advice and installed Leak Monitor add-on. Occasional leaks occur while surfing. On one site (Chase Bank online banking) leaks occur so often I can't keep up with closing the Leak Monitor alert windows. Why does this occur on particular sites? Is it a problem with the site or with Firefox (3.5.9)? What can be done about it? Thanks.

How do I stop Firefox from remembering my user names? I know about how to turn off the password remembering but that doesn't stop it from remembering my user names. The only way i know of to stop it is to clear my history. I don't want to keep doing that every time I close firefox.

This happened

We've noticed that some users hitting our website have an empty ( ) at the end of their user agent string. This is typically where the .net framework asst version info is. We only see it with the latest generation of firefox, 3.6.3, 3.5.9, etc. It seems to have started or gotten much worse around 4/26. Here is an example - "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 ( )" Anyone have any idea what changed? - Thanks

== roughly 4/26

When I open "markets" from the homepage, it comes up but drops off after a few seconds and I get a white page. This does not happen with Explorer. A similar but much more extensive problem happened a month or so ago (I couldn't open attachments). I called Microsoft and the fellow messed about with my computer for an hour or so, but ended up saying he couldn't help me. However, when he went away, the problems went away.

The longer and longer I use Firefox it starts having difficulty displaying webpages. The formating is off, images show but are in wrong areas, and makes navigating and viewing the page very difficult. But once I run the IE engine to display them thru fire fox everything looks the way it should. I have version 3.5.9

On my Mac, I use Firefox as my main Internet browser. When I open Firefox and type in certain keywords in the browser bar, they used to take me directly to the website. For example if I just typed in "apples wiki" it would take me right to the Apples Wikipedia page. Or if I typed in the words "best buy" it would take me right to Best Buy's main website instead of having to type out the entire URL. Now when I do that, it just takes me right to Google's homepage.
