While using Firefox 3.6.10, I can go to the Gmail web site, but I am unable to view any emails when I click on them. I also cannot delete emails when I check the boxes and then click on the 'Delete' button. It worked just fine in Firefox before I updated to 3.6.10 from 3.6.8. I now have to use another browser to do Gmail which is my primary email.

How do I change the tab settings so that when I manually open a new tab, my home page opens in it?

Internet Explorer gives the following options for opening a new tab: "When a new tab is opened, open: - A Blank Page - The New Tab Page -Your first home page"

On Firefox 3.6.10 the only option is the new tab page. If you click "close" a blank page appears. There is no option for a new tab opening your home page.

In addition, you cannot right click the home button to "open in a new tab".

Is there a shortcut for this, and if not, can firefox include this option in it's next version?

When using Firefox as the browser, if I go to amazon.com and search for a particular cd, the title and all other info about the cd come up but there is no cover image. This problem just came up a few days ago--everything was fine for the past several years--but now there is no picture on anything. If I use Explorer as the browser and do the same search, the pictures are all there as they should be. What's going on here?

I am using FF v.3.6.10 & XP with Service Pack 3. I am always conscious of installing the latest updates available for all of my programs.

I use 4 homepages but occasionally when I open FF it only remembers my first homepage (which incidentally is http://www.google.com.au/firefox?client=firefox-a&rlz=1R0GGLL_en-GB). In an attempt to solve this issue, I uninstalled FF from the ‘Add or Remove Programs’ shortcut in the Control Panel and then downloaded the newest version straight from the internet. When this didn’t work, I uninstalled FF again but in Safe Mode, shut the computer down, after 5secs I restarted the computer in normal mode and then I re-installed FF. But the problem has still persisted.

Also, I have noticed in the Privacy settings the following are unchecked: Automatically start Firefox in a private browsing session, Remember search and form history & Clear history when Firefox closes.

Is there anything else that I can do so that FF continues to always open all of my homepages?
