Hey guys! I just wanted to say, I LOVE FIREFOX 13 BETA. I think its awesome and you guys are definitely moving in the right direction.

On the Firefox Homepage is the Logo and the Google search Bar right in the center of the screen. However, I'd like to us BING instead of google, cuz I really just don't like google anything. Is there a way for me to use BING there in the center, or bing at all? Thank you so much for your help!

P.S. Please tell me you guys are developing an APP for the Windows Phone :3

Hello there, I'm using a Firefox beta v13) and have had my firewall warn me that Firefox was attempting an outbound communication to IP 117.21.224.232. It's done this before (in prior versions too) and if I deny the connection, Firfox stops working.

I finally did a lookup on the IP and found that it's in China. Why is Firefox doing this and how do I make it stop? I'm rather worried.

Thanks,

Orbis

I'm using Firefox 13 beta. The new-tab page is an awesome feature, but it does not work well.

When i'm visiting sites it does not changes. It still like this: http://img195.imageshack.us/img195/2474/56130e74e4b842268628eba.png

If I restart Firefox, the new-tab page will have some sites, but with no thumbnails, like this: http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/8289/74eadf18095b43a39696159.png

Sorry for my bad English.

The blank page think has gone, there is now these saved tab things, 9 squares for tabs you click and goes straight to the site. I currently have 3 tabs i like already pinned. But there's still a couple i want, how do i choose what i want? They go in the blank rectangles/squares. I have got a screenshot for you so you can see what i mean if you don't understand what i'm talking about :) http://i46.tinypic.com/24fba5v.jpg

Hey, everyone.

I'm having terrible experience with the new firefox 13, and I was wondering if other people are experiencing the same. FYI, I'm using Windows 7, i7, and 8gb ram.

After the auto-update, after 10-20 minutes into browsing, my hard drive (SSD) engages completely full rendering my computer useless. Everything is unresponsive, and the only thing that I can do is hard reset.

I tried uninstalling FF 13, but the same thing would happen with IE and Chrome. So I did a system recovery. The good news is the HDD problem is gone, but after the auto-update to FF 13, I realized the computer is terribly slow. I opened my resouce monitor, and wow, FF is pretty much driving the CPU to 100% constantly. I turn FF off, and it's fine. On FF12, I would have more than triple numbers of tabs (40+)compared to now (12-13) open, but it wouldn't render my computer slow.

This is a little frustrating since the setting and extensions are exactly same before. The only difference is the new Firefox.

Has anyone experienced the same thing?

I just downloaded and installed the new Firefox Beta (I think it is versioned 13.0). One reason I decided to try it was the new tab page feature mentioned in the email that I received. It said that this new tab page feature had been added that shows thumbnails with recently visited web sites. I have been using the New Tab Jumpstart add-on to get this type of functionality. It would nice to get the same functionality built-in. I cannot find this new tab page feature since I installed the new beta. I even disabled the jumpstart add-on to see if that would make it work. How do I get this new tab page functionality to work in the new beta?
