I downloaded and installed firefox 3.6.3 on my mac g5. It asked if i wanted to replace the already existing firefox and I said yes. But when I've tried to go to several sites, whose passwords already existed firefox acted like it didn't know of the previous existence. Then when I did enter my user id and pw firefox never asked if I wanted to save it. Some of the sites do ask security questions when needed, but most don't.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== with the new version of firefox for mac, firefox 3.6.3

I have items on my bookmark tool bar that I have saved within the last year. Recently whenever I try to make a new one, it won't work and will send me to a different website. If I try and edit the bookmark and save the changes, it will just change it back to a different website no matter how many times I try and change it.

Over time, due to me hitting wrong keys, my gmail login has accumulated several mistyped usernames. Every time I access gmail, they all pop up. I'd like to start clean, but I can't get rid of them. I've followed your instructions for clearing my cache and history, but to no avail. I've followed instructions to click inside the username window and then use the arrow and delete keys--also no success. I'm on a Mac, OSX 10.4.11. Thank you!

Recently about 1/3 of my toolbar bookmarks will not show up on the actual toolbar. When I go to Bookmarks and then Bookmarks Toolbar, the last three are missing. However, when I go to Bookmarks and then Organize Bookmarks, the missing ones still appear under the folder here. I've tried readding them to the toolbar but when I restart firefox they go missing again.
