I have been a user of Firefox for a long time but it seems to have gotten really slow. IE will open web sites much faster than firefox on all 3 of my computers. Is there something wrong, boged down or do I need to reinstall it?

It seems that it is taking twice as long for firefox to open the same websites as ie. I run updates but seems to just be taking a long time for it to open sites and I ca… (read more)

This used to just work on a different system and I don't remember having to set any default settings. For example, when I am browsing through craigslist and want to email someone that has posted an ad I used to being able to just click the encrypted hyperlink to that person and the gmail login page would come up. On this system it prompts me to use OE. I've tried disabling OE, I've tried deleting OE (won't let me delete), I've deleted OE from the registry but still it pops up when I'm in Firefox. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

I like the new "wallpaper" just downloaded from Firefox that's at the top 3 inches of the screen. However, the address bar goes virtually across the entire screen, covering up her face. Clicking on the "View" button over the address bar, then Toolbars, then Customize, I've been able to move stuff around that was covering the area of her face. How can I shorten the address bar 3, 4 inches so I can enjoy all of the image? Thank you. Bruce

Users of my website are complaining about a popup box which appears repeatedly and requests them to enter their username and password. This is on a page which does not require any login to access. I've seen the popup myself and verified it only appears when using a Firefox browser. The versions I've seen the popup on are all 3.0 or higher. If you click ok or cancel the popup box disappears, but it comes right back no matter how many times you try to get rid of it. I've seen this same problem on multiple computers running different operating systems.

I have Windows 7 on a 17 inch Alienware. The web pages are too small on the default screen resolution settings I use for my work. I have to zoom up several clicks in Firefox to enjoy reading. Every time I change to another site it reverts back to the smaller size and I have to re zoom again. Once I set mt zoom preference it should stay that way. How can I do this?
