I have created several bookmark folders in the past and all is good with those. But I tried to create a new folder the other day, and now if I click on the star in the address bar it creates a new bookmark in the unsorted list. If I double click the star to move it to the new folder all I get is a list with two of the bookmarks (in duplicate) that I created a long time ago. Also if I click on view /sidebar / bookmarks. I get a list of 3 icons all saying (no title). Only thing I can think of is that I created the newest folder after the last update, and the others were before the latest update.

.and I don't want to upgrade FF to what might be a beta version to get this status4eva addon!

I prefer to keep my status bar visible as I have a weather addon and like to see up to the minute info on the temperature outside and I use foxclocks to keep track of timezones where online friends live.

Now for what I'm talking about: For example, I'll go to Livejournal and some layouts have the "previous/next" link in the lower left(your left if you face the screen) corner where the tooltip pops up. Well, the pointer will spaz between becoming the pointer finger and an arrow, and the link becomes impossible to click. I can get around it by opening a new tab, but this is really annoying to have to open and close tabs constantly. I REALLY think the tooltip should just pop up across the status bar area itself if at all, because it seriously gets in my way.

Yes, I am aware it will move to the right if it's still there when a page is loading and you move the mouse pointer down there. However, this is not the case if a page isn't loading and you're trying to click that "next" link at the bottom of a page.

This is VERY annoying. Please look into it when upgrading FF further.

The above happens on a frequent basis all of a sudden. I have been using Firefox for many years and this is one of the first time this happened.

I suspect it is due to the add-on Feedly that I have installed not too long ago.. Need someone to double confirm if it can be the cause.

On a sidenote, i checked my Firefox process and it seemed to use an exorbitant amt of memory - 218k worth of memory under task manager . Is it normal ?

Thx alot. =)

I just had an update of Firefox, and next thing I knew, I had a message from "Mozilla Security" telling me it had found "critical process activity on my system and will perform fast scan of system files.

This is the message in the dialog box that showed up:

Firefox security alert

Scanning of your system is currently on, please wait until the end. Your system affected by numerous virus attacks, Mozilla Firefox recommends you to install proper software to protect your computer Quick scan system: Scan complete Number of scanned objects: 3676 Number of infected objects: 97

It then directs me to Click "Start Protection" button to erase all threats. If I do that, an install program window pops up with: installInternetDefender_143.exe from http://monozsa.ce.ms

I don't automatically click on those unless I know they are legitimate. I'm just concerned that the security issue came about after I received an update to my Firefox.

I already have a security program installed on my computer through my internet provider--why would it not have picked up these infected objects? Is this legitimate? It

I've just upgraded to 3.6.14. Since then on many sites I visit, including my home page 'BT Yahoo', The Fwd & Back arrows on the toolbar stay gray when I go to another part of the site. I then have to reload the the site & start again instead of just going back to the page I want. When this happens the 'Drop down arrow' also does not work. I never had this problem on 3.6.13. I'm using Windows 7 64bit

I am not a techie. I thought by sending a particular message from a regular spam sender to my spam folder, that there would be built in intelligence and that the next time the same sender would mail me a message, the system would automatically recognize the spam sender and move his to the spam folder directly without going to my inbox. This is not happening. What should I do to avoid seeing spam?
