In the past few days I have been getting the following popup when I use firefox as my browser: Exc in ev handl: Error: Bad NPObject as private data!

I assume it came from your latest update. I have windows vista with a 64 bit processor, and I am using the latest version of firefox. I checked to see if I was getting the same error message with explorer and I am not. It appears to be some sort of conflict with java script. Can this be corrected?

When I click on "Bookmarks" the drop down list flashes momentarily and is then not viewable. If I hover the cursor over the list, each bookmark will flash momentarily and then not be viewable. The list is actually still there because when I hover where it should be, the hyperlink is shown in the lower left of the window.

I use CCCleaner at the end of each of my PC sessions. Since updating to FF5, I frequently get a message from CC saying that it cannot clean everything since FF is still running. This is after I've closed FF. I look in Task Manager, Apps and FF is not there. However, in Processes, there is an entry for FF. When I stop it, all is fine. How can I ensure that when I close FF, the process is also stopped?

Some time ago I let Firefox remember my Yahoo email username and password. Last week someone hacked into my Yahoo email account and used my email address list to send out lots of yucky spam to them. I have changed my Yahoo password, but now, just for safety's sake, I want to have that password blank whenever I sign in. How do I toggle the Firefox memory OFF so that it doesn't remember my new Yahoo name and password? I would prefer to log that name and password in myself from now on.

When Firefox is first opened I get "The proxy server refusing connection". I go into Tools > Options >Advanced > Network > Settings then select either 'No Proxy', 'Auto-detect', or 'Use system proxy settings' . Once one of these has been selected surfing works great until I stop and re-start Firefox then it is lost 'self-resetting' back to the "Manual proxy configuration" - HTTP Proxy 127.0.0.1. How do I make it maintain the 'No Proxy' between WS shutdowns and startups? Thank you. Jeff

After upgrading to Firefox 5, i've noticed it's displaying the wrong fonts (bigger than they should - they looked ok in Firefox 4.x, Chrome, Opera).

The strange thing is if i start Firefox 5 in Safe Mode, it displays it correctly. I've disabled all the addons, i've cleaned all the Cache, setup the minimum font size... even reinstalled. It's looking ok only in Safe Mode.

What else to do?
