The last few days the multiple username drop-down menus have disappeared on ebay, facebook, etc. where I have multiple accounts That I access several times a day. Yet, when I manually fill in the username the password still auto-fills, so I know the ID's are stored.

I checked Tools>Options>Security and, yep, the ID's are stored there.

Double clicking in the blank username box does nothing. No drop-down.

How do I re-enable the username drop-downs? I'm not sure it's been disabled totally, since I just added multiple usernames to my Google signin and that seemed to function.

I'm annoyed and confused. I flip back and forth between multiple ebay accounts all day and this is realllly frustrating.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Firefox is becoming useless as it frequently crashes when opening pages and goes to "not responding" frequently

I am using 3.6.16 on my pc laptop running win 7 and my Mac desktop...on both I am having frequent crashes and "not responding" when on multiple sites. What in the world is happening with firefox? I have used it for years without problems but past several months have been extreme disappointment. I cannot decipher the problem and it is happening on both pc and Mac. Your help page with "crashes' is not helpful and I am about ready to make Safari my default browser as firefox has become dysfunctional. The complaints about 4.0 discourages me from changing to the upgrade..Where do we go from here????

I occasionally encounter attack sites that tell me that my computer is infected, and I should run/download the website's "antivirus software" to fix it. These sites hijack my browser and do not allow me to exit out of them; I am forced to ctrl+alt+delete and shut down firefox manually. An example of this kind of site is http: // systemantec-antispyware .co .cc, which calls itself "Fast Windows Antivirus 2011". How can I prevent this from happening, and can I report this kind of site to firefox to prevent others from being victimized?

in firefox 4, sites in the tab bar are all crammed together, don't like that, makes them hard to see, so have gone back to v3.6.16 where they can be scrolled. please can you allow that in v4?

When I used Firfox 3.6.16, I made extensive use of the tab bar to hold my most used sites. At any one time, it showed 9 sites on screen but with arrows at each end, it allowed me to scroll left and right to access any other active site I might have. This was perfect ... nothing was crowded and all were easily seen. Then I updated to Firefox 4 ... big mistake! Now the tab bar is unable to scroll resulting in my tab bar becoming very crowded ... now I can't read the names on the tabs clearly. Is there a way that I can get the scrolling arrowheads back again please? Until then, I have returned to Firefox 3.6.16. Hope to hear from you very soon. Thanks.

Want to read more details? Search Firefox Help with the phrase "Smooth Scrolling" and read many entries of frustrated users. Marketing for FF 4 is great, but the reality is poor. I'll go for a different browser if FF is not significantly improved soon. The last version was much easier to use. Access to features and several Add-Ons has become less easy with the new version, some are now almost unmanagable. Everything is overloaded in too few places and bars. Who said that the layout and bars of Android or IE were better than those in FF 3???

Well i just tried to upgrade from 3.6 to 4.0 only to immediately discover this lost my ability to listen to eve radio.com. (streaming internet radio) Both FF versions had the same plugins and such enabled and up to date in particular the WMP addon, checked volume/mixer on the computer and site etc etc but gave up and uninstalled 4 and reinstalled 3.6. Not sure if its the windows media player not working with the new 4.0 or what, but i will be sticking to 3.6 until this works with the new version.

I have Cameron Roy's English (Australian) Dictionary, Version 2.1.1 as an extension with my present Mozilla Firefox. I discovered when I updated to Firefox 4, there was no compatible version available. I have reverted back to my original Firefox. The benefit of freely being able to write is too good to surrender. Will you please find a way to update Cameron Roy's English (Australian) Dictionary, or one to substitute for use with Firefox 4? I really do not want Firefox 4 without such a boon available. Thank you immensely for caring enough to provide me with this avenue to communicate with you. I hope my explanation to my question has been clear enough to understand. Best Wishes to you from Magda Also (Australia)

This problem only started recently. Opening another web page (URL) from my homepage always opens in the same tab and the "go back one page" button is gray and does not work. If I open a series of web pages in the same tab the green "back" button is green. Clicking on the "recent pages" down arrow will allow me to go back, but only to the page after the home page. In other words, after browsing, I can get back to the opening page (my home page) only by clicking on the house icon but not by using the "recent pages" function. Is there an option that changed after the last update?

Using Windows 7 Home Premium - have not had previous problem opening Firefox, but now it will not open. When I try to uninstall or install upgrade I receive message that I must close Firefox first - it is not running and I have rebooted and used Task Manager with no success. FAQ solutions all seem to require that you be in Firefox, which under these conditions is not possible.

Hello!

Recently I found my newtab was hijacked by Bigseekpro. That means when I opened a new tab a strange search engine called Bigseekpro appeared. The problem was a strange toolbar. After deinstalling that toolbar in safe-mode, the problem was solved. However, when I looked in the config of firefox I notticed there were some strange entries; all starting with Somoto. After doing a bit of research I found that Somoto is a kind of malware. Yet I don't notice anything strange anymore to FireFox, but still I'm a bit nervous...

Do the entries Somoto in about:config cause any problems or are they not harmfull when my BigSeekPro isn't appearing anymore as search engine while opening a new tab?
