(ie. middle click tab to close, tab bar to reopen last tab,scrolling.) I have changed no settings and have gone over them multiple times, but to na avail. Is it Firefox 6.0.1?

When I try to print a web page ie an article from the NY Times or other newspaper, the first page prints properly with correct scale then the 2nd page is either blank or comes out in double or triple scale so that much of the page is missing. I have tried with both "Ignore Scaling" checked and unchecked. As an end-run, I chose a very small font and when the entire article is printed on one page, it comes out correctly. Just the 2nd and 3rd pages are affected. I have already downloaded another copy of Firefox 6.0.1 and have replaced printer drivers. I am using Mac OS 10.6.8 on a MacBook Pro.

Hi, ever since updating to version 6, I started to experience connection lost from time to time.

This never happen to me prior to version 6.

As an attempt to fix this, in outpost firewall, I allow all activity for firefox (this is not even needed before this).

I then run firefox in safe mode, with all plugins disabled. It appears to fix it but then the problem is back after few minutes.

I do a clean reinstall of firefox but nothing seems to change.

On my side, I am able to reproduce this by visiting deviantart.com

I am sure my internet connection is still on because I can browse while using IE.

I am going to switch to others, the only reason I am giving this so many chances because of few extentions that I use. But then, losing connection periodically driving me nuts

By the way, restarting the browser temporary fix this, also the reason I can finally post this.

I cannot play words with friends on facebook with firefox, so I have to switch to internet explorer to play. I have updated everything, so what is the problem. The game appears to be loading, but that is all it ever does. No problem with I/E

As explained above, Words with Friends appears to be starting, but never progresses to play, the page just says loading, but nothing ever happens.

I have a Mac OS-10 which has operated smoothly for quite a while. This morning, for no reason I can figure out, an impersonal computer voice started to tell me where I was going, .i.e, when I'd go to one site, it would announce I was there. Every so often it will repeat "TEN FOUR FOX HAS NEW WINDOW." When I hit the caps just now, it said "CAPS LOCK ON" and just the reverse when I took them off. This is too creepy. How do I get rid of the voice that was never there until now? Did I somehow enable the voice by hitting a wrong key?

Since loading FF 6.0.1 this morning (Sept. 2, '11), my Facebook page is now completely wonky looking. Everything is shoved to the right half of the page; the left half is blank. It's a mess. When I use Chrome, by contrast, the page looks normal. How can I get things back to normal in FF?
