Firefox is not responding to scroll requests sent by my Lenovo USB optical mouse via the Scrollpoint. (FYI the Scrollpoint functions pretty much like the Trackpoint on a Thinkpad keyboard, giving it 360 degree scrolling much more fluidly than any wheel on an ordinary wheel mouse.) The Scrollpoint commands are recognized quite well in just about every other program I use, including word processors, email programs, and especially other browsers such as Opera. I have, in fact, switched to Opera as my main browser until this feature issue is resolved in Firefox. Thank you for your support.

Sometimes after using the master password to access an account during a given firefox session I would like to "revoke" this ability for automatic access (i.e. require typing the master password again) without having to end the current session and restart firefox.

While it is nice to only have to type the master password once per session, there are times when after starting some action I would like to leave the browser unattended for a short time but prevent others from accessing sensitive information at other sites if they do not know my master password. Note this is not the same as "locking the browser." Presently the only way I know to force this is to kill the current session and restart the browser but this is not very satisfactory if I actually want to stay connected (authorized) at a particular site. I would hope that adding a button on the security tab to "require master password for current session" would be a simple fix to implement? Thank you for your attention.

I used to be able to change zoom using ctrl_scroll and it worked fine (to fit whole page on one screen with no scroll bars). Now, even after I do that, as soon as I go to a new site or change folders in gmail, it keep reverting back to a default zoom making the page too big to fit on one screen. It is particularly annoying with gmail..

I disabled both of the Firefox Add-Ons I use (NoScript 2.1.0.1 & Ad Block Plus 1.3.6) and rebooted the machines, but that had no effect. This problem has been repeated on multiple PCs, running XP Pro (sp3), Vista Business (sp2) & Server 2003 (sp2), right after upgrading to Firefox 4, so the problem is definitely related to Firefox 4.

For example: I have 3 tabs open. I have tab 1 selected, I switch to tab 3 and proceed to type (Log in details for example) When typing it out, the information I enter types out on tab 1, rather than 3, sometimes I don't check and press enter (Causing it to enter on tab 1, which could cause me to show my password on another site)

I have to switch between tabs like 3-4 times in order to sort the priority out.

this problem is not duplicated when viewing same page in Internet Explorer8.0.6xxx.

http://www.weather.com/weather/videos/news-41/top-stories-169/cool-problem-snow-still-piled-up-21500

This was most recent website visited and when it automatically redirected to the next video in line, it froze the mouse. I tried to launch the task manager at which point it locked out the keyboard.

(This PC is a Dell Precision T3500 w/ 6G of RAM running WinXP Pro x64, there is no rationale for this kind of incompetence.)

This happens WAY TOO OFTEN, like more than 50% of visits to video oriented sites like youtube etc

Greetings, I've create two separate Firefox configurations. When I open each one individually, they work perfectly. However, when one is open and then I open the other, it becomes a mirror of the configuration that is already open. Is there a setting or switch to prevent this?
