I followed these instructions for autofill in the address bar:

"Filling in automatically while typing a web address

If you don't want to select a result in the autocomplete list while you are typing a web address, you can set Firefox to fill in it automatically:

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press EnterReturn.
         * The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page. 
  2. In the FilterSearch field, type browser.urlbar.autofill.
  3. Double-click the browser.urlbar.autofill preference to set its value to true. 

Type the first few letters of a web address, it will suggest one web address that matches. Type additional letters until it shows the web address you want and press EnterReturn."

It will not autocomplete the web pages I have visited before. What am I missing?

Running Mozilla 3.6.3 in Windows 7.

Dear Fellows, I know this thread is closed and I'm so sorry to bother you. Unfortunately I don't have any idea how do I fix my problems with alert boxes, confirm boxes and modal windows under newer Firefox versions. All of my codes were working good till firefox 3.6.XX. I've developed my web applications using native message components (alert, confirm, prompt) and modal windows too. If I try to change to another way now, it will be very hard to me, because I have thousands of lines codes and logic blocks based on these native components. I don't wanna back developping web applications under IE, never more. Please, could you tell me how can I fix these problems or if there is another way to config the Firefox ? Thank you very much.

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and got Firefox ver 3.6.3 in the installation. Now I want to update it to newest version for the security aspect. But how do I do it? I'm new to Ubuntu, I have always used Windows so it's new to med. I did read a update instruction I found on the Mozilla website but I can not use the tips as my old version of FF looks different. I have no "check for updates" in the Help menu. In windows it's standard to download the program and then install by a install.exe program but this doesn't work in Ubuntu. Can you please help me course this is a problem for me.

I've selected the option to: "Open new windows in new tab instead" from the options menu. For some time this seemed to open any link I clicked on in a new tab. For some reason this feature is no longer working and new links clicked on simply overwrites the current tab with the new page. I liked the feature of having links open automatically in new tabs. The option remains selected but it does not seem to be working.

In recent weeks Firefox has begun to crash repeatedly and unexpectedly - mostly when I click to open it. I often get the infuriating "well this is embarrassing" message. Most unhelpful. I send you the report of the crash and expect to hear from you as to why I am having problems but nothing happens. I can't find how to locate the "about:crashes" in the location bar. Can you explain this.

My mouse wheel won't scroll in Firefox, but it works for every other program (including IE, don't make me go back to that!). I have downloaded the latest driver for my mouse and also tried changing the config in "mousewheel.withnokey". I never had this problem then suddenly it just happened, but only in Firefox. Any ideas?

Since a couple of days, youtube videos stopped working - they'd display the "An error occurred. Try again later" message on Firefox, whereas on Opera they work just fine. I tried to totally clean the cache, and they started working again. Not sure why, but cleaning the cache also set the cookie button plug-in to refuse YouTube cookies, so YouTube kept asking me which language I'd wish to set as the default one; so I re-enabled cookies and set the default language, and as soon as I did this, videos stopped working again. I tried to re-install Firefox (over the previous installation, no way to uninstall it via the control panel), same thing. Videos are working as long as YouTube cookies are rejected. Suggestions?
