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.

I installed Lion 10.7 and manually installed Java now the plug-ins checker says I am not up to date. Does Firefox 8 not need this app? I posted this when Lion was released, now I have gone from Firefox 6 through 8 and still no Java 14.0.3 update. Does anyone know how to fix this or is this just an issue because Mac does it's own Java? I have got the latest Apple 1.6.0_29 Java release.

When I get links sent to me in Gmail and I want to view them I usually "press cmd + click link" to open the link in a new window. When I do this in Gmail it opens as a foreground tab even if my default action is to open in the background.

This is not the case in Hotmail or on other site - just Gmail. If I rightclick and Open in new tab then it opens correctly in a background tab but I would like this action using "cmd+click" if possible.

I just upgraded to OS X Lion, and when I went to work, I noticed that Firefox 5.0.1 stopped connecting to the Internet.

It refused to connect me through the corporate proxy (MS ISA + NTLMv2 Auth). After repeated attempt, it would sporadically connect me to http sites but NEVER https sites.

If you need further information, please let me know.

Greetings all,

On my Macbook, I have Firefox and all of my bookmarks are contained within. I am attempting to export my bookmarks from Firefox, and then import them into my Safari browser. I have read just about every Firefox tutorial, and am still hitting a dead end. If I follow the Firefox tutorial, I am led to believe that clicking within the Firefox bar at the top of my computer, on "Bookmarks" (which is just to the right of "History"), I will see a drop down menu, and then I will be able to scroll down to "Organize Bookmarks" When I click on "Bookmarks", indeed there is a drop down menu....but unlike the tutorial, where you can plainly see "Organize Bookmarks", this does not appear for me. I am so stumped, and so frustrated. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all, so much Jeff

On several sites, such as SouthEastern Toyota's site and the Florida Department of Transportation's SunPass site, the site systems will serve up PDF files which simply do not display in FireFox and which do not get downloaded. Earlier versions of FireFox did not have problems with those sites; FireFox 4 and 5 do. Other web browsers, including Safari, Opera, and, over on Windows, IE 8 and 9, have no problems. Is there a fix and when will it be available?

When I search for something, regardless of the search engine used the results of the search appear in the "active" tab. Is there a way to configure Firefox to automatically open a new tab and show the search results in that new tab? Yes, I can do it manually by opening a new tab, than doing the search, but it would be much more "user friendly" if this would be automatic. I use an Apple Mac Pro running Mac OSX 10.7

Is it possible to open multiple pages at once (like a home button), but allows you to select/ sort under different topics. e.g one click opens all financial tabs, another opens sports, etc

Consider that I want to sort these vairous topics as a way to review all my regular interests individually, without having some many pages open when I click the home button, only to close non relevant pages.

In essence I see it as having 2 or 3 home buttons. Does this exist?
