I am using FF 4.0.1 and have been a FF user since the earliest version released - never really had any issues UNTIL FF 4.0.1.

Every time I start up FF now, I get the error message: "The proxy server is refusing connections". I am not using a proxy server.

I have to go to Tools>Options>Connection Settings to select the "No Proxy" option EVERY TIME I start up FF. It does not remember this setting and keep resetting itself to think I'm using a proxy server. This must a be bug and I've seen many others post about this issue but haven't really found a workable solution as yet.

I have tested with Chrome and Explorer and don't have this problem with those browsers.

If there is a fix for this incredibly annoying, time-wasting problem, please share it.

Thanks

I recently downloaded some software called jZip and at the same time jZip also placed a toolbar on my desktop. When I start Firefox it always defaults to the jZip toolbar and search engine. How can I delete jZip totally from my computer. I have already removed the software from the control panel but the toolbar and search engine still remain.

I recently updated to the Firefox version suggested by Comcast. I had previously been running Firefox 6.-.- The "update" took me back to Firefox 4.0.1. (I did this because a Comcast tech was blaming a Comcast problem on Firefox. Finally I found a tech who identified the TRUE cause of that problem which had absolutely nothing to do with Firefox.)

After the "update" to version 4, old tabs that I had deleted a couple of years ago began reappearing on startup. I have deleted the bookmarks for these tabs, and cleared History and Downloads, Cookies, and Cache. But the outdated tabs continue to reappear when Firefox opens.

I can see the "statusbar issue" have been discussed a lot, but couldn't find a satisfying answer.

I haven't used Internet Explorer for several years in benefit to Firefox. I hope I can keep it that way while I am also able to stay up to date at the same time.

After recently updated my FF 3.6(I think) to 4.0.1, and plenty of time trying to customize the new looks and location of bars and buttons etc to my likings, I need help with a few things:

1. How do I disable the "link hover preview bar" and make it appear on the Add-on Bar(the old statusbar replacement)?

2. How do I remove the X(close button) on the Add-on bar? I don't know if its only me, but something at the back of my head mistakes it for a pop-up or something else that needs to be closed. Very annoying to have to re-enable it every time.

3. How do I put a "border" around the new Add-on bar so it doesn't look like an extension of the webpage im currently at? The lack of a border might be the reason why I subconsciously think it's a popup. But even so, I still see no reason for the X.

4. The new colorless buttons/icons makes it easy to miss click (they all look too similar now), can I get them old ones back?

5. How do I make the Reload button and Stop button stay separate buttons instead of one combined button?

6. Lastly, I am used to have a button at the right side of the last tab to open a new tab. Now I need to add another button at the top instead. Or can I get the old "open new tab" feature back somehow?

Thank you for your time.
