Had same problems with Ff 6. 1/4 to 1/3 of pages take forever to load. Sometimes I can make them by highlighting URL and hitting Enter. Sometimes the activity indicator just spins and spins and page never loads. Sometimes place markers appear where images should be. New York Times homepage, for example, partially loads (some missing images) but links from it take forever.

Tonight Firefox crashed after trying to open a new tab. Since that initial crash, I have not been able to open Firefox without it crashing within 5 seconds of startup.

I opened the program in safe mode, disabling add-ons and it still crashed. After that I updated to the latest version, (I believe) 7.0 for Mac OS X. After the update I tried opening FF but experienced the same result.

I have not tried uninstalling and re-installing, but I would hate to lose all of my bookmarks.

Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated, as I am currently stuck using Safari in the meantime, which is just.... inadequate :)

I used to be able to organize bookmarks. Now (after allowing several Firefox updates) "unsorted bookmarks" will only show me 1 or 2 bookmarks out of two or three hundred (on computer 1) and 3 out of about 50 (on computer 2). ALSO I went to the defaults/profile folder looking for my bookmarks - nothing there but an empty Chrome folder. So where is my bookmark folder, and the backups?

As a web designer, I've used xara dropdown menus on a number of sites and they've looked fine until Firefox 7; now the menus have shifted to the left. Can you tell me a workaround? The menus are fine in other browser. Thx.

Some of these sites have used xara menus (which are javascript-based) for years without problems. Since I've used Firefox as my default browser since its first release, so I would have recognized the problem right away if it were happening before version 7. Also, I run Firefox on my iMac with Lion; I don't know if the menu-shift problem also is occurring on Windows machine with the new version of the browser. Sure hope you can tell me a quick workaround that I can install on the affected sites.

After going through and updating Ubuntu to Ubuntu 11 and with the new Firefox 7.0.1 for Ubuntu canonical 1.0, I was going to import backup of Bookmarks from html only to find that there is no way to Import and Backup of Bookmarks. What's the deal here? I would give Tech info if there were any.

How do I restore backed up book marks when there is no way of doing it?

I used to use Firefox 3.6, and finally upgraded to version 7.0.1.

I have like 30+ tabs open, and notice something REALLY obnoxious that my Firefox is doing. I do seem to recall 3.6 having this problem as well, but back then I was able to Google it and disable whatever value was making it do this.

Say I'm on the far left tab. I hit ctrl+t to open a new tab, or even click on a link that pops up a new tab. The tab bar does an animated scroll all the way to the right, which takes a good 2-3 seconds given how many tabs I have open... then if I close that tab, it scrolls all the way back. This scrolling is annoying and I want to disable it!!

I tried using the tab animation setting in about:config, however that only prevents it from showing the tab "grow" to fill the space. When you have tons of tabs open as I do, that's irrelevant. I believe FF3 called this "Smooth Scrolling"? How do I turn this off? I tried looking at about:config under animation, tabs, all sorts of keywords, I can't find ANYTHING relevant!

Even if I'm on the far right tab and open a new one, it makes an animation as if the new tab is "appearing" from the far right of the screen and popping into position. I can understand why some might like this but it really irks me, and I want it turned off!
