When I go to my Page Setup dialog box, in Margins tabs, I see that I can specify the margins in inches. However, in my friends PCs, I have seen Page Setup dialog boxes that use millimeters for handling margins.

How can I make my version of Firefox to use millimeters instead of inches? Using this obscure unit is inconvenient for me. I prefer to use the internationally-accepted metric unit.

I need to keep the Firefox version 3.6.6 due to compatibility issues with other programs running on my servers. I've successfully installed this version but whenever I open Firefox I get this message: 'Your browser is out of date Upgrade today for the latest in speed/security.' I click on the No Thanks icon, however, I get this message every time I open Firefox. I have my settings set to NO auto update. How can I get this window to not display?

For the past week or so Firefox has suddenly started asking me if I want to translate my pages from English. Even if I say NEVER translate english pages it continues to ask. This is happening on both my work PC and home PC. All the pages I read are in English and this has only recently started to happen (around beginning of July 2010). Not all pages just some.

I'm using Firefox v.3.6.6 and am taking a college course on eBusiness use that references the Firefox "Bookmarks Manager" window. I finally learned through this forum that the name was changed to "Library". (Thanks for telling us!) However, I'm seeing a typical menu bar and a row of toolbar buttons below that in the screen shot. And, I can't find any information in the forum about how to activate these features, or what happened to them.

Thanks for any information and help on this matter!

I noticed that tabs, when opened by a link (opened in a new tab), appear next to the tab with a site of that link's origin. So far I like it but I can imagine a situation where it could be annoying.

other thing is closing tabs. usually when closing a tab firefox switches to previously used tab - that is very good. but after closing a tab which was opened by a link from other tab, firefox switches to the next tab on the bar. I think that it has both good and bad sides.

So, to conclude. I think that users should be able to set these policies themselves. I realize that these are not very serious problems and people can live like this with no problem, but this stroke me quite fast after last upgrade.
