I have already gone to tools, options, privacy, clear everything, clicked all boxes, clicked ok; tools, options, advanced, clear cache, etc--I've tried it all. I can still see the sites I've visited this week, month, year, etc. and they still appear when I type in any letter into the address bar.

I'm going to soon be using this computer in my 3rd grade classroom on a Promethean Board... I don't want my students to see awkwardfamilyphoto.com pop up and then get off on a tangent or God forbid, anything racier than that.

Please help! I like Firefox, but if I can't delete my current browser history, I'm going to have to switch to a different browser for the sake of keeping my students on task.

         moments.

Firefox will freeze up every 15-20 seconds. The Firefox CPU usage goes to about 70%. This is especially noticable on videos which pause when this happens. I have seen other mentions of this problem, but no help curing. It is driving me bugnuts.

Firefox ver 3.5.11 - PC: Quad Core, Server 2008, 2g ram. Happens when this is the ONLY app running and only one tab. This is definitely FF doing this. When it is closed, PC works perfect.

For about 2 weeks I have been unable to leave feedback on ebay. Firefox brings up login page but will not accept password. I am having the same problem with my yahoo email. It will not accept my passwords, so I have to use IE to login to these accounts.

On yahoo email, it accepted my login id, but not password. This started on one account about two weeks ago. Today when I tried to login to another yahoo email, which worked yesterday, but it would not accept my password on this account. I bought some items on ebay and wanted to leave feedback. When I clicked on the leave feedback button a sign in window appeared, this should not have happened, when I tried to sign in, it would not accept my password. I called ebay and was told they have had many complaints from customers using firefox when trying to leave feedback. The help desk suggested I try with Internet Explorer, I did, and it worked perfectly. I have been using firefox for a long time and really do not want to go back to IE, but when I cannot sign into my accounts, I can't, so I will have to use IE. As far as I know, no new programs have been installed on this computer.

It used to be that i could make changes such as sorting of folder bookmark listings in "organize bookmarks" and they would occur immediately in my Firefox browser. Now, for some reason, every time i make these changes in the Organize Bookmarks screen, nothing i've changed has any effect on my Firefox browser. There is no place in "organize bookmarks" to force a save, so there's no way for me to implement the changes. Don't understand why this worked before and does not now.
