Firefox 3.6.3 on my Mac (OS 10.6.3) enters my password to a website automatically (as set in Preferences)

I had to change a Username & Password for a site.

Firefox continues to enter the old UN & PW  despite a number of my attempts to change to the new ones.

How can I make this happen?

Thanks!

...John

Right-click in NYTimes website, "Search Google", doesn't lead to google.com

On most pages, I can highlight text xxx, right-click, and select "Search Google for xxx", and I will get a Google search on the term xxx. From the nytimes.com site, however, I often get taken not to google.com but to google.com/firefox, with an empty search box. This happens maybe 90% of the time, almost always when I've left the NYT home page and I'm reading an individual story. I have no idea why (no idea why google.com/firefox even exists, actually), but it's aggravating that this simple and very useful feature is not working reliably. If I select search engine YYY in the toolbar, "Search YYY for xxx" works just fine. It's only Firefox that does this, only on the NYTimes site, and only with Google as the search engine.

I click "Clear Recent History," check all the boxes, select "Everything" from the drop down menu, and click "Clear Now" and my Firefox will delete my cookies, but it will not delete my browsing history. My browsing history stays. I click the history drop down menu on the top and it still has things I browsed just moments ago.

I'm running Firefox 3.6.3 on Mac OS 10.6 and am having the following problem: Drop-down menus in websites (e.g. the one right below this field) behaving strangely. Every time I click on the arrow to open the drop-down options, the drop-down box with the options starts shaking like crazy, making it barely possible to select the desired option.

Do you think I have a virus in FF? Each time I load FF, all tabs open correctly, but after about 5 seconds, this electronic melody starts to play, and then, after about 10 seconds, shifts to a siren type of sound. I have deleted FF and reloaded, but still having the issue. It happens whether I have one tab open or several tabs open. I am not having this issue with Chrome, just FF.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

I was trying to load a gmail message, locked the computer. Shut down and restarted. Issue started when I loaded FF.

Apple safari remembers every one of my frequently used passwords on every web page. I just downloaded and installed version 3.6.3 for Snow Leopard. I transferred all my bookmarks to Firefox yet some websites do not ask to be remembered. I went to your help page and was directed to a "bookmarklet" - but couldn't figure out how to use it???

Hello. Firefox (and Word 2008 for that matter) has been crashing whenever it tries to load / use a front from the "Franklin Gothic" font family. I've looked around for solutions, but most just recommend removing the font; I'm trying to see how else I can fix the problem, as I need to use Franklin Gothic... a lot.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

WHen I open certain links that open in a new tab (e.g. my bank statement has a "printable version" option and when I click on that link and it opens in a new tab) firefox suddenly minimizes and becomes a lot smaller. And I have to maximize the screen again and this becomes annoying after a while. What gives?

Oh and I'm running on a Mac (OS X).
