The NYT home page displays correctly in Safari. It has been like this in the last two weeks.

The center frame is blank for about a half-page length, then starts to display the information.

I have the latest Firefox updates and I have been using it for a long time without any problem. It's running on Mac OS X 10.6.3.

Thanks, Ed

I do not understand why firefox doesn't display the 'keywords' property of a bookmark when I create a new bookmark.

(I have had mixed luck updating the install script for openbooks on newer firefox versions, but it would be nice to not have to do this..)

Trying to upgrade to 3.6.8, and it says I can't because I "don't have access to some of the items. What in the world does this mean, and what do I do?

I'm on a new Mac Mini running 10.6.4, bought in January and loaded with what I assumed was the latest version of FireFox--what I have is 3.5.2. I know I upgraded at least once since January

When I try to download 3.6.8, it says that I "don't have access to some of the items."

I don't think I've downloaded any plug-ins or anything that should trigger this. I have done a bunch of the standard upgrades that Microsoft incessantly sends out to fix problems in the Office suite. Haven't added any new applications. Can't figure out the problem. HELP!

The "Bookmark Page" button in the toolbar opens a window that doesn't let me change the bookmark text.

Formerly, I could change the text of the bookmark in the "Page Bookmarked" window. Now, I can't do that any more. To change the text, I have to save the bookmark as is and go to the Properties drop-down menu choice in the Bookmarks sidebar. This is very inefficient.

I would like to have in the Bookmark toolbar only text (to be more discrete). In the Mac version of Firefox it is like that, but in the Windows version the bookmarks in the toolbar are consistently shown with both icon and text.

There is a choice to be made for the Firefox toolbar whether icons, text or both should be shown for each knob, but for the Bookmarks toolbar I cannot find that.

It is a detail but improves ergonomy for using Bookmarks toolbar.

I run Windows XP SP3 and Mac OS X 10.6.4 respectively

Almost every time I quit Firefox, it seems to close down, then it pops open again after about 60 seconds. If I quit the second time, it closes as normal. I checked to make sure it doesn't happen because the next program I am using is opening it to display some connected content. I also checked to make sure I don't have two instances of it open or something like that.

When I am logging in to my email, Firefox offers multiple suggestions for my user name as soon as I start typing. One of the options it offers combines my user name and password, which is a real security issue for me. I've tried clearing cookies (the email account is through Cavalier Telephone, which is powered by Google), but that doesn't change anything. this also happens when I type in the subject of my email. I hate autosuggest features and want to get rid of it entirely. How do I do this?

Often, when I'm trying to close a tab, I get a drop-down asking if I really want to close it. Really Annoying.

Usually the tab is a site that is trying to advertise, or get me to fill out some form, etc.

It's very irritating that these sites have the ability to stop me from closing them immediately. Most of them carry data mining components, so the longer they stay open, the more likely they are doing something on my computer -- it seems to me that Firefox (which I prefer as a browser in every other way), by allowing the drop-down is complicit in their activities.
