I want to do everything I can to prevent snooping on my Mac. I'm running OS X Lion .7.2 and Firefox 7.0.1 I'm not satisfied with something that sites can either choose to honor or not. All these rotten javascripts, 1pixel square 'images' and iframes are unacceptable to me. I have nothing special to hide, I simply resent sites reading anything about my preferences, goings and comings other than whether they need to accommodate for IE's quirkiness or not and my IP address. Everybody's in on the user data mining bonanza. Microsoft, Google, on and on. Why aren't Firefox users told more about this and how to deal with it? How can I read urlclassifier3.sqlite so I can make my own judgments about which sites I don't want scripts, etc, sucked up from? Not in Mozilla's best interest?

I'm trying to paste a simple MS Word doc directly into the body of a Gmail email, but all formatting goes out the window. I've tried downloading a couple different HTML editors, including CoffeeCup (which doesn't work with Firefox) and Firefox's own Firebug, which, quite frankly, no one on this end can figure out (doesn't seem to be as user friendly as CoffeeCup). Please advise, as this will be an ongoing operation which we'll need to be able to perform. Thanks.

Firefox 7.0.1 on Win7 pro 64

Hi FF team & community,

sometimes FF 6/7 shows a VERY strange behaviour: while doing "normal" things on websites (click links, edit text boxes, scrolling, changing tabs) FF starts to ignore my single clicks. The only way to work is using double click instead of single click (i.e. for links, enter a textbos, changing tab, even for open a Firefox menu) for ALL actions!!!!!

A minute ago, the last example was on

 https://plus.google.com/circles/find 

while moving a contact to a "circle" - FF changes to only accepting double clicks. No error, no message.

I found this buggy behaviour on many different websites - simples sites and sites with complex functionality, too - in the last weeks since FF6+7 are current versions.

With my other two questions I'm getting the idea, that current FF releases contain more bugs than releases between FF1 to FF3.
