I checked the address drop down this morning and when I returned about 15 minutes later it was gone and also gone from history. I know this sounds strange, I did not delete and no one was home with me. Is it possible to connect from another computer and delete.

After automatic update from Firefox (removing suggested plug-ins slowing system down) no icons appear in some pin apps -- just a dotted rectangle. These used to have a "folder" icon, at least - now nothing. Can customized icons be inserted in these?

FAFSA is the form to fill out for financial aid for college. I need to fill out the latest form for Spring semester next year. Before I was able to fill it out online and save and send it to the college. When I got to the website and clicked on fill out form, a message came up that I didn't have the right version of my browser, so I downloaded the latest version of Firefox, and then restarted the computer, and went back to the website to try again, and got the same message. Then I had two shortcut icons on my desktop and I can't tell which one is for the latest version of Firefox. When you download the latest version, does it take away the last version that you had previously downloaded?

hey when i used to press the "add tab" button, it would open a tab, and the icon on the tab was a picture of a blank page.

it has now been replaced with a dotted-line square.

please help get back to me at ryan.products@gmail.com, or just reply here.

I am running Firefox 8.0 on Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1; the padlock is missing in ALL themes I use with Firefox, including the default. I don't know when it started for sure, but first noticed this behavior shortly after upgrading to Firefox 8.0 about ten days or so ago.

Since updating to Firefox 8 (Firefox 7 on 10.7.2 worked without issues) I can no longer shut down Firefox cleanly.

Firefox must be shut down by using the Force Quit option.

I have also noticed increased hard disk read/write access since upgrading to Firefox 8 and switching between tabs is noticeably slower.

Everything works fine except when downloading bigger data packages. In itself not a problem, but when I leave the computer on its own, the downloads stop after a short time. FF8 and the internet connection are still working. Never had this problem with the prior versions. Please help. I really don't like to spend hours in front of the computer, clicking every few minutes on a internet page just so the downloads are not interrupted.
