When I try to do the LA Times Crossword Puzzle on line, as I enter the letters, numbers show up in the grid. I am definitely pressing letter keys.

I have no difficulty with IE but have the same problem in Chrome.

Any help would be appreciated.

In the Library page of all bookmarks, when you search the bookmarks, the returned list does not contain folder info. When I discover dead links, I would like to go to that bookmark's folder to see if there are any more stale bookmarks therein. I guess more people use tags than folders and subfolders to sort their bookmarks? For example, under Science, I have astronomy, physics, etc.

I have a 22 inch monitor set at 150% but since I installed Firefox, the font is too small and the screen is too small. Cannot make font or screen larger. I can do Control++ each time I enter a page but don't want that to be my solution.

In control panel/display, I had my display set at 150% and at 1680 X 1050 resolution. This filled my 22 inch screen with the page content. Now that I have installed Firefox, the font is too small and the content is centered in the screen leaving about3" per side of blank space. I want to fill the screen and make everything larger. Haven't found a way to do that. Firefox tells me in my control panel/display window that by setting my display at 150%, "some items may not fit in your screen if you choose this setting while your display is set to this resolution. It worked fine with Explorer.

How can I change the proportional font in Firefox?

I prefer helvetica font, so I have changed the fonts for webpages in Firefox settings to it (changed all fonts to helvetica, unchecked "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"). However, some webpages still display in what I presume is the seriff font under proportional font. It would be nice to get all webpages to display in helvetica font but it seems that firefox only allows seriff or sans seriff for the proportional font. How can I make all the webpages display with the same font: helvetica? Please do not tell me how to change the other fonts; once again, I have done that. I only want to know if and how the PROPORTIONAL FONT can be changed or disabled, so that all webpages display in helvetica.

The websites are being stretched sideways to twice their normal width so I can see only the left half of a site unless I go into "Fullscreen" mode; ideas?

Whenever I use Firefox the page opens so that I can see only the left half of whatever site; i.e. half of the useful page info (the rest is cut off) displays on the right half of my screen while the left half of my screen shows just background of the site. Using the maximise/restore button does nothing. If I swap to the fullscreen view I can see everything fine but obviously I lose my tool bars. I installed the latest version of Firefox with no joy. I've looked for a page setup function to no avail. I thought that time would fix this as it is something that has happened before but was temporary. Other browsers work fine. I thought about uninstalling then re-installing but I'm not keen to lose my bookmarks etc. unless I have to. Thanks for your help in advance; I hope this ramble makes some sense. Cheers.

Although I can open Notes without a problem, when I attempt to open my emails, I receive the message - 'A problem has occurred which may have caused the current operation to fail.'

I have no trouble accessing it through Safari but would prefer to use the Mozilla browser. I did not have any trouble before upgrading.

How do I turn off that automatic update that always brings me to the "what's new" web page? It was interesting the first time, but now it is just an irritation. I can check for updates on my own, so I want to turn off this feature. It just started up when I upgraded to Firefox 5. I can't find a place to stop it from checking and bringing me to that web page. Also, I can't stop it from checking add-ons every single time I open the browser.

When I downloaded Firefox and was checking my extensions, I was advised that Firefox is not compatible with the malware prevention part of my Webroot security package. I use it successfully with Windows and just renewed for another year. What do you suggest I do to protect myself? I am not a computer expert so if you could reply in plain language it would be appreciated. Also, we stream videos a lot and I noticed that DivX is also not compatible. What do I do about that? Thank you.

After I downloaded Lion, I ran Firefox 5.0.1. Immediately, I noticed significant layout problems in CNN.com and MSNBC.com. And on Facebook, the friends, message, and notification icons at the upper left didn't work. Nor did entering comments to Facebook posts. Even the button that says "View X Comments" in friends' posts didn't work. For comparison, all of them work fine on Safari 5.1.

I rebooted Firefox 5.0.1 with plugins disabled, and still encountered the same problems.
