When I scroll a page down rapidly, and then stop, the page keeps scrolling down even though the mouse wheel is no longer scrolling down. I believe this is a Firefox issue, because in the same exact page in Safari, it doesnt do it.

I think my cookies.sqlite file is corrupted because none of my passwords are saved once I exit the browser. I know this is a common problem, and I've tried all the steps that were suggested before: I've tried deleting and renaming the file (it doesn't stay deleted-a new cookies.sqlite file comes up when the computer is rebooted), I've checked my privacy settings to make sure I'm accepting all cookies, I disabled the part of my spyware protection that looks for malicious cookies (it's Spyware Doctor, if you're familiar with that program, and the part I shut off was the "Cookie Guard")...nothing seems to be working. If you can help me, please understand that I'm not great when it comes to computers, so talk to me like an idiot!

I have a problem with my bookmarks, cookies, history or settings

Description

Recently installed Google Xmarks and immediately lost any star bookmark functionality. Any new bookmarks I try to create are given the title of the last previous webpage I tried to create (which wouldn"t be a major issue only a nuisance to copy & paste the correct name in) but ALL new bookmarks are directed to some version of "http://ad.yieldmanager.com/iframe3?sI" instead of the correct site. Have diablrd and then uninstalled Xmarks but the problem remains. Use the latest version of Firefox for Linux Ubuntu 9.04. Thanks.
