We are developing a Flash game. Since we upgraded from Firefox 3.5 to 3.6 we have noticed a strange performance issue. Our game uses http to make requests for assets that are loaded into the game. Since the browser upgrade, there is at least a 10 second delay each time Flash tries to load image data that has already been cached. The strange thing is that if you minimize the browser, the request comes through instantly.

We confirmed this behavior using an extension called HttpFox which allows you to view incoming and outgoing requests. We also reverted back to Firefox 3.5 and confirmed that the issue did not occur in that version. Additionally, we've confirmed that this issue does not occur in either IE8 or Chrome for Windows.

My sweetheart can't see font well except for that which is very bold. Chasnging the SIZE of font is too cumbersome for him because it enlarges the entire page and means he has to scroll everywhere to see everything he wants to see. We can't seem to locate an option to just make all of the font on screen go bold, rather than larger...

Depuis quelques temps, sans que je ne sache quel est l'événement qui a causé cela, lors d'un clic droit, le menu contextuel de Firefox affiche ses éléments de manière déroulante (une flèche en haut, une flèche en bas) avec des tas de lignes vides. C'est très difficile à décrire. Les flèches ne réagissent pas. Et souvent je ne peux pas accéder à "ouvrir un nouvel onglet" "enregistrer image sous"... De même la correction orthographique m'affiche un menu vide. Cela gâche toute ma navigation. Je tourne sous WIn 7 64 bits avec carte graphique ATI Radeon 5870

Wouldn't it be cool if a person could "unbookmark this page" or tab the same way you bookmarks one?... thereby eliminating the cumbersome necessity of cleaning up the bookmarks folder of unwanted bookmarks. After all, who really does that anyway. Usually you only know if the bookmark is now unwanted after you have opened the page. It would make life easier to be able to unbookmark it from the page your viewing rather than going back into the bookmarks list, finding it and deleting it. Just a thought. You can use the idea, I won't charge any royalties, haha.

When I try to click on a link to a document within a website, that document doesn't open like it should. For instance, if I go to the census website and click on a link to open an excel spreadsheet, Firefox doesn't do it. It usually does nothing; if I tell it to open in a new window or tab, it just opens a tab labeled "untitled" that ends up being a blank page.
