If I am already in Firefox, say checking my Gmail, and then plug in my USB headset to make a free call, the sound only comes through the iMac internal speakers. I cannot make the sound come through the headset. It's only when I Quit Firefox and reopen it that the sound comes through.

When I'm in the web page, I cannot use the page-up or page-down to scroll the page, not even with the scroll up arrow key. The reason of that is because the page now always has a cursor, and I have to know where the cursor is to decide what the effect of the page up key will take. Not like the previous versions. I only need to go into the page, and page-up or page-down to scroll. Can anyone suggest how to change back to the previous version behavior? I'm now using 3.6.12. Thanks!

I am trying to access a website and Firefox tells me that it is unable and that it is usually caused by the browser not allowing cookies. When I go to Preferences and Privacy as shown on the help screen, I see History and Location bar, but the only mention of cookies is to either clear history or remove individual cookies. Where do I find the switch to enable cookies??

I have applied for a job with a bank and have been directed to an on-line provider of competency tests (SHL on demand - www.shldirect.com). The portal is not compatible with the latest versions of the FF browser (or Windows IE 8), so I need to download and earlier version of the browser.

My personal laptop OS is Windows Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2).

I have a 17" screen, 1024x768. After updating Mozilla Firefox, I look at this page http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6.12/whatsnew/ .

Firefox Extension: NoScript.

1)Before allowing scripts: fonts look clean and readable. http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab81/ffilou6/ff3612a.png ;

2)After allowing scripts: fonts look a bit ugly, bold and kind of blurry, not precise and straight, aliased http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab81/ffilou6/ff3612b.png .

I hope in the next Firefox updating page, fonts will look better :-) .

For those of us who, sadly, live in homes where private browsing enables internet conduct that is not appropriate, can private browsing be disabled? If not, please understand that this private browsing "loophole" is concerning to portions of the user community. It would be great if this was an option that users had control over in their homes. (Maybe somehow by IP address?)

Firefox works fine until sometimes when I try to click to a link, or something else, then the tabs area fills in with a whole bunch of 'untitled' tabs that go whizzing across the tabs area. If I close Firefox, it just opens again with the tabs still running. I have to totally quit out of Firefox, then re-open before it will stop.

Every time I start Fire fox an error appears that reads......

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.yahoo.com.

   *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again  in a few moments.
   *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure  that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
