Since I downloaded Firefox 5, whenever I open the application or open a new window, the display is offset to the right. I must adjust the right corner to get it back to the center.

Since I first downloaded Firefox 5 (over a week ago), it has been impossible to open the application and begin working. The display is regularly off the screen to the right. The only way I can get it working is to adjust the lower right corner of the display. Doing this causes the display to pop back to the center of the screen.

I know this is true of GMail (my home page), but it is also true of the Firefox Help page, and several others. It does not happen in other browsers.

In an earlier version of Firefox I loved a certain function: When I typed a word into the browser bar Firefox would mosltly start the web-page that belonged to that word. ('yahoo' would open http://yahoo.com) Now I only see the google results...

Do I have to change something in the preferences or is it completely gone? Thanks in advance!!

In order to have the page load correctly, have to manually resize the page.

password is saved but acts eccentrically

I have a joomla website with an administration login. I Password Manager and Password being Cleared automatically articles in support. My password appears in my Firefox Saved Password file. When I first asked it to remember the password it worked fine for a while. I would go to the Admin login page and Firefox would insert my user ID and password. All of a sudden that stopped. Now I have to type in my user ID. Sometimes the pw gets filled in when I do, and sometimes it doesn't. If I do it a few times it will get filled in eventually, but it never automatically fills in both ID and pw together at once. Sometimes there is another problem in addition. If I do login I get kicked out with a message saying something like "You have to log out first". This happens at times when I know I have logged out (though this may have come from have different tabs of the admin open at the same time). Anyway, this is a mix of problems. Not to complain but I never had these with Safari or IE. They are minor irritations, but, as I am new to Firefox, it makes me insecure with it. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

I never have problems with Firefox before. I usually don't put my Mac on sleep mode but I did do that last night. I don't know if that caused the problem or not. I tried to restart my computer thinking that might help but it didn't.
