Firefox crashes on startup - this started right after I installed the latest update. It just says that an error occured and that I can try to restart, but then the same thing happens. I have tried all the steps in the crashes article, but nothing seems to work. I can't even start it in safe mode - then it just freezes completely.

How do I fix this? I'm hoping to keep all of my bookmarks and stuff.

It seems that, since a few weeks, Firefox no longer closes a window when pressing ctrl-w even if there is only one tab in the window.

What I mean is that, if I open a new window (ctrl-n), it won't close if I press ctrl-w (or ctrl-F4) immediately after. If there's is one window with one tab, the application won't close.

ctrl-shift-w won't close all windows as it used to either. I've tried finding a preference about this that could have been deactivated by mistake, but couldn't find anything.

I installed Firefox 8 today to give it another try after a pretty bad experience of switching from FF 3.6 to FF 4.0. Right now, i've dealt with most of the inconveniences of the switch, but there is one thing i don't get.

What happened to the tab navigation behavior? I mean, i used to be able to switch tabs from left to right with Ctrl+Tab and from right to left with Ctrl+Shift+Tab. And it was perfect for me. Now Ctrl+Tab is opening some sort of a preview window, and Ctrl+Shift+Tab opens the All Tabs list.

How could i get the previous behavior back? I'm too used to it to change myself simply because somebody came up with a new way that he thought would suit better.

Thanks.

I have a problem with firefox. The problem seems to perist if I uninstall firefox and delete profile data, remove plugin and even install firefox anew. I cannot see any tooltips. when I try to boomark a page, I cannot see the bokmark miniwindow. Similarly I cannot view the save password for page window. Both of them seem to appear randomly for a brief moments as I move my mouse. I only have this issue with firefox as other programs/browsers operate normally, and I have it for at least a week now, cant remember exaclt when but it wasnt always the case.

Under the history link there is a button "clear recent history" but it is greyed out so I can't click on it. I want to clear my cache because I hate autofill. I've already changed my settings so it won't remember anymore things, but how can I clear what's already there?
