Certain websites appeared 'squashed' ie the text is overwritten as though the page has been slightly compressed to fit

I am using a Mac OSX 10.6.8. & Firefox 5.01. Certain pages have overlapping text which sometimes results in partialy covering some click boxes. If I use Chrome or Safari they are ok on same pages. The example below will show a little of what I mean but on this site in particular when I go into it further the problem increases and I cannot for example access my account because the button I need to click on is covered over with text

Are moderators now censoring unfavorable, even if respectful and helpful, posts criticing Mozilla's "rapid release" approach?

Several of my posts have vanished off of threads, recently, despite not having any rude, profane or baseless content.

I have been vocal about not liking the "rapid release" approach, by Mozilla, as I feel it's introducing bugs and problems faster than it's fixing them, but my posts have been intended to be helpful and recommend that people roll back their FireFox versions to functional ones, as well as request Mozilla to get back to the basics, which mean producing a great product with sensible updates.

I would hate to think that CENSORSHIP is now the Mozilla approach, in these boards, for anything which dares criticize their update policies.

After all, I've been a long-time Firefox supporter. The surest way to lose supporters, though, is to CENSOR what they have to say.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Title says it all. I just upgraded to Mac OS X Lion, and can no longer use a finger swipe, whether one or 2 fingered, to move backwards an forwards between pages. I can still do so in Safari, but not in Firefox 5.01, my preferred browser, any longer. Doesn't matter if I try using one, two or more fingers

Is there a fix for this? Thank you.

I have latest Firefox and now the latest OS X: Lion. But the pinch to zoom gesture (which works in Safari) will not work in Firefox web pages. I thought Firefox was upgraded to work with Lion. So why not the zoom or is there something I need to do to FF to get this feature to work?

The keyboard number keys and symbols above them will not work. I nothing at all except a space or they last letter key used, but works fine in other applications such as MS Word. The number pad works just fine. Any one have any thoughts on this.

I had to do a reinstall and upgrade to Windows 7, so I may have missed something. Running a 64bit OS. Problem only seems to be in the browsers.

I add a new toolbar (right click on toolbars, then "customize"), give it a name, and put a few buttons on it.

The new toolbar is visible and working, and can be seen for instance in the View/Toolbars pop-up menu.

However when I exit firefox and start it again - after this, the new toolbar is gone. Even in View/Toolbars it is not listed anymore, i.e. it is not a problem of being unselected, but it is completely gone.
