I am running Firefox 5.0.1 on Windows XP. DSL. Frequently, it uses a ton of memory, so I exit. However, it continues to run under 'processes' in the Windows taskbar, not releasing memory. Often, I have to actually turn off the pc. Turning it back on, I try to open Firefox and sometimes I have to try more than once. It works fine for a while, sometimes a whole day!! Yippee. I have installed and uninstalled. I have run every diagnostic I have, even a disk defrag without success. I have updated all my plugins. What else can I do?

For some reason, Firefox stopped reacting to ENTER in location bar. Also selecting a page from history drop box does not cause it to load. In short, to go to a page I have to choose it or type the address, and then click on green arrow. Why? It was always enough to press ENTER or select with mouse.

I must confess, I heve lots of addons installed, therefore my toolbar is fully loaded. the adress bar is shrunk to a minimum, but there would be absolutely no need for the Page Security Info to be THAT space consuming!!? Who needs the full name of the certificate to be visible all the time! Wouldn´t it be enough to just show it by hovering over it?

Is there any possibility to shrink this annoying text to the size of an icon??

Thanx 4 every hint!

I just downloaded Firefox to my Mac. Now there is a permanent icon of Firefox on my desktop. Not the Firefox icon though, it is a blue diskdrive icon with a white fox on it.

Also, when I open Firefox a window opens up that has another firefox icon with an arrow beside it pointing to my Applications folder. This happens everytime I open firefox.

How do I get rid of these?
