Recently, my firefox has been displaying all headings in a weird font. Here is what the font looks like: http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a77/saracmd/diagram1.jpg And another example of it happening, right in the firefox website (its the blue font) http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a77/saracmd/Picture4.png this oddly appears this way on all blog-style webpages I have been on in the last few weeks. Even some news pages! I have tried going into the options in firefox to see if it was a font option that changed, but it appears to be fine. Here is what my font options look like: http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a77/saracmd/Picture3.png Can someone please help me out? I would really like to have this changed back to normal.

I wanted full screen so I checked? or unchecked some of the bars by rt. clicking the top blue bar, to give me more space on the screen, I thought if you clicked the top blue bar the options to restore the search bar and tool bar would be there. They weren't! There now is no way to restore the url, search and tool bars.

Ok, Im using Firefox 3.6, and for some reason, firefox crashes every time I go to a webpage containing the phrase B i g_B a n g_T h e o r y (spaces in between are so my firefox wont crash...).

I tried searching for the phrase on internet explorer, that crashed too.

I determined that "theory" has nothing to d with the problem, and that the crash only occurs when the words "B i g_B a n g" are on the page (with no spaces or underscores...)

When firefox/IE crashes, its not a traditional crash. there is no error message or javascript popup, the page simply closes out, as if I had pressed alt + f4.

also, the page containing the problem phrase doesnt crash if it is in a background tab.

Any ideas whats wrong?

FireFox 3.6.3

Hi. When navigating in some Google sites like blogspot.com and groups.google, the page results in an error like, "Service Unavailable" because it gets caught in an loop of redirecting. The tab reads, "Redirecting" and the progress bar shows redirecting over and over. So far I notice this only with some Google sites, but not all of them.

I switch to IE and it doesn't have that issue. I don't allow cookies (except for exceptions, which are set to allow for these domains), and never 3rd party. Even with accept all cookies on, it doesn't help.

FYI, a few months ago I installed a FF addon for controlling redirecting. It allowed me to enable or disable redirects in general. I didn't like it and disabled it. It was after that I noticed the first of these issues. I uninstalled it but still have the issue. Can this be the cause? I don't remember the name of the addon.
