Sometimes my wifi connection is choppy (darn that microwave popcorn!) and I hate it when I'm in the middle of reading the links in Drudge and it reloads....sometimes shifting the layout a bit or just hanging while it waits for some adserver to respond.

Is there any way to stop this from happening? Tried Freezing the tab. And for some reason, firefox is not preventing this page from automatically reloading like it does others.

Any ideas?

Some time ago I let Firefox remember my Yahoo email username and password. Last week someone hacked into my Yahoo email account and used my email address list to send out lots of yucky spam to them. I have changed my Yahoo password, but now, just for safety's sake, I want to have that password blank whenever I sign in. How do I toggle the Firefox memory OFF so that it doesn't remember my new Yahoo name and password? I would prefer to log that name and password in myself from now on.

In early Firefox versions there was a handy Add On named Bookmarks Synchonizer, the last version of which was updated by Torisugari. This allowed individual bookmark folders to be exported and imported.

Great for sharing information between colleagues, where you don't necessarily want them to have access to all your bookmarks folders.

Can this be done in Firefox 4? I can't see how to do it, and XMarks doesn't seem to offer this either.

Thank you in advance. I upgraded to firefox 4, and since then I have had a problem. When opening a new tab I have chosen to be directed to google.com. In the past my cursor automatically went to the search bar on that page when I open a new tab. After upgrading the cursor just stays in the address bar, but I would like it to automatically move to the google search bar on the page. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks again.

In FF3, the information about a page loading or even the url of a link when hovered would appear in the status bar. Now it appears in a tab like window above the add-on bar and obscures part of the screen.

Can this be moved back to where it was in FF3?

Hi,

Whenever we start Private browsing, the existing tabs and windows we are currently working on closes and reopens only when the Private browsing is stopped. What we exactly need is, a new Private browsing window should open so that we could work on all the tabs which are currently open. Is there anyway to do this?

Thanks for your good deed with FF4. It's just awesome!

Been trying to get HTML5 video to work in Firefox 4 and 5. It doesn't work. I've used Fireogg to process the video but all I get is a big "X" on screen. The code I'm using works in Safari, Opera and Chrome. This has been going on for months now and I don't appreciate having to jump thru hoops to do such a simple thing for Firefox. It's absurd. Every other browser works. Check below for the code.

After I click View/Full Screen on the Firefox menu bar, I lose the main FF Menu bar. When I hit the esc key, the screen remains locked in full screen view mode. Then I have to reboot my computer to get back to the default FF menu and display mode.

Why doesn't the esc key work the way it works when I'm viewing videos in full screen mode?

When I begin using a given web page FF asks if i want to save the user name and password. I select yes and they are saved in tools options passwords but most do not work on a second opening of the page. E Bay is the only one that works.

I have removed all several times and am again asked if I want to save the UN & PW but again they do not work.

However when I type the first letter of my UN it suggests the complete name and fills in the password. So I know the information is stored it is just not supplying it as expected.
