Going to a news or weather site and seeing the news or weather from 3 days ago is ridiculous. I erased all history, I set private browsing, told Firefox to not remember history, all in vain. It still displays the old content until I refresh.

I'm trying to access a banking site to login to my online account. I get a pop-up window that says I must have javascript enabled. I check my Firefox preferences and javascript is already enabled. I was not having this problem with the Firefox release before Firefox 8.0. I think the problem may be in release 8.0.

Not like CTRL+K for the search bar then Shift+Tab. or F6 then Tab (and another Tab in some cases)


If there is shortcut for the address bar, then why isn't it listed here: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Keyboard%20shortcuts?as=aaq

If there are no shortcut, does anyone know the reason why? For me it would be the most used shortcut by far.

I emptied my cache.  I rebooted Firefox.  This is my email website - never had a problem before.  I am able to access it on Safari.  I even tried the simple address (rather then my bookmarked login address) - still got the same error message!

In browsing through my extensions, I found Datamngr 1.0, which was obsolete after FF4. Though disabled, there is no "Remove" option. I searched for solutions and apparently it was associated with Searchqu, which was accidentally installed (and immediately uninstalled) several months ago. Unlike others on the forum, I have had no problems with Searchqu popping up unexpectedly. I would, however, like to remove Datamngr 1.0 to reduce the number of extensions that load with Firefox. While I have found many suggestions for removing Searchqu, I have found no effective way to remove Datamngr. Suggestions directly related to Datamngr removal would be greatly appreciated.

FYI: I am running FF8 on Win7 Home Premium (x64) environment.

When accessing certain websites, a method of determining if a person or a computer is accessing the site is used - its known as captcha letters. These are distorted alphabet letters which require interpretation by a human. With the latest version of firefox 8.0 I am unable to see those letters displayed. I just get a blank text box. I am able to see them on Internet Explorer. I'm wondering if there is a setting for FF8.0 that allows me to see these non- standard text letters. I am using windows 7. I have posted the url for the ferret site where the captcha letters are supposed to be displayed - tree 33. The text shows up on IE but not on FF8
