I find one infuriating problem with Firefox. When on a tab with sound, the 'silence' icon (the little loudspeaker) is right next to the 'kill' icon (the stylized 'X'). They are no more than a millimeter apart. For those of us with any shake this means it is far too easy to hit the wrong one. I have lost count of the number of times I have tried to silence a page for a bit and completely wiped it out instead and had to re-start the page and hunt through the video to find where I was up to. It is bad or me, it must be terrible for people with severe parkinsons disease or any other shake problems. Would it not be possible to create a customising option to separate these, or even just remove the kill X when the sound is on, as it is rare anybody would want to kill a page in mid-speech. Then if you've had enough, just silence it, then kill it.

Does Firefox have a 'suggestions box' I could stick this in? - thanks, John

I know this is going to push the boundaries on the "stupid question" meter, but I've looked everywhere I know to look. I have a website that I completely trust (inasmuch as one can), and they've recently made some changes to their site that requires the site to reload for an animation. The problem is that FF interrupts with the banner (see image) about reloading and my only l option is the "Allow" or "Dismiss". One requires me to just keep pressing the "Allow" button, while the other stops me from seeing the reload. Is there a way I can stop this?

Thanks in advance, Dan

I saved bookmarks in a file ; Firefox says go to start menu and type in link shown in Firefox 's how to recover your bookmarks but my start menu does not have a search box or place where I could do that. Please tell me how to get the search box I need. My Start button only has the programs I use use above the Start button.

I cannot use email -- too old to learn

HDD was failing in my other computer. Put in a new HDD and transferred bookmarks (FFox. 16.++ on both) but don't remember how to transfer my saved passwords. Some folks helped me with this when I rebuilt this PC (the one I am using to send this info), and I remember most of the path and method but not well enough to attempt it without some guidance. The other PC is an ASUS G50VT-X5 laptop.

Firefox website shortcut icons on my desktop now look like the first choice one sees when right clicking a shortcut icon , then left clicking "properties", and then clicking " change icon" -- they should look like a white square with the firefox logo in the center instead of a white square with a little box containing 3 tiny symbols.

I'm running XP Pro SP3

The Options > Advanced > Update tab switch, "Warn me if this will disable any of my add-ons", does not seem to work.

When I was using the old version of Firefox (13.something, I think), hitting the "ESC" key instantly stopped any page loading. This doesn't work in my current version (16.something). I have to click the X on the far right of the address bar. This inability to quickly stop a page from loading is beginning to remind me of Internet Explorer.

Steps: I enter "wowt.com" (that's a local TV station web site) into the address bar. When I do this, I get suggestions of sites that I have visited before (that's ok). As soon as I hit "Enter" on the keyboard, it takes me to "woot.com". This is not an autocomplete issue. This only happens in Firefox (I've tried in Chrome and IE9).

This seems like a spellcheck feature for the address bar in Firefox that needs to be turned off.
