I want to erase all certificate exceptions, that is, go back to the original default set of trusted SSL certificates. I've found the Certificate Manager and its big lists of trusted things, but I have no idea which of them ship with Firefox and which of them were added by me at some time in the past. How do I do this?

If, by accident, I click on the bottom part of Firefox (above Windows´ taskbar) the browser sort of minimizes and I can´t reopen it, I have to cancel everything I´m doing. As I usually work with many tabs, a pop-up asks me if I want Firefox to save my tabs for next start, and I click on "Yes", but then, when I open it, I can´t restore them at all, even if I go to History-> Recently Closed tabs...

How can I solve this???

Please, I´d really appreciate it if you could help me, because this is so annoying, and makes me waste a lot of time!

The only solution is uninstall firefox and reinstall. I have to do this every day as it only works until firefox hangs or closes.I'm running Vista. Never had this problem until I updated to 3.6.8 and then I kept getting java errors, so I downloaded the newest java. Now if firefox starts at all, the add ons don't work. If I uninstall and reinstall, they work temporarily until I have to close firefox.

The current options for opening a new tab in firefox is to either open at the right hand end of the tab strip, or to open it at the right end of the related content tabs. If the number of tabs between the current tab and the new tab exceeds the number visible across the window, there is no visible indication that the click was successful and a new tab was opened. Is there a way to get Firefox to open a new tab to the right of the current tab but to the left of the related content tabs. This means that you would always see the new tab being opened. It would also mean that if you accidentally opened the tab in the foreground rather than the background, the related content tabs would still stay in order (albeit from right to left rather than the current left to right).
