when I go to a site that I want Firefox to remember the username and password I type the new one and the bar appears at the top asking if I want it to remember this, I click yes and then it doesn't do anything. The bar doesn't disappear and the password doesn't get remembered it just stays there until I change the page. It remembers everything up to a certain point in time (probably about six months ago, sorry I can't be sure?) but will remember no new ones.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I can't remember but I think about six months ago

In Firefox 3.6.4, there is an easy way to clear recent history. But even though I have set Firefox to remember visited sites for "at least" 30 days, it remembers them for months and even years. I would like to have it, automatically if possible, purge history older than some defined interval. Lacking that, I'd like a way to manually delete history older than some date. Is there a way to do this? I have search the forums and add-ons, and came up empty.

re: http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/firefox_newplugin.xml

simple installing the firefox java 1.6 plugin fails.

you get a working version of this tiny plugin as a 'reward' once you installed a full Java version. but that adds up to more than 70MB of data unkown necessity and background running services.

Blackberry converter site is the only one I have use for it anyway to key sign my apps .

are there still efforts made to get the plugin working without the c**p?

This new process associated with with the recent Firefox Update to 3.6.4 is just hammering my system, with Plugin-Container.exe stealing about 60% CPU time from other applications on XP SP3. This problem only started with the upgrade that Firefox was nagging me to install and I followed the Firefox application instructions telling me to reinstall/upgrade Adobe Flash (even though I already had the most recent version, as I do with all my extensions and plugins. This version isn't ready for release. How do I roll back to the previous version of Firefox? Thanks.

== Today when I upgraded from previous to version 3.6.4, and then followed onscreen instructions to update Adobe Flash.

Any new tab I open switches focus to the address bar (which I want to happen), but as soon as a start typing, I can get at most 3 or 4 characters before it loses focus, and no other keystrokes are entered.

I have a load of keyword searches set up, rather than using the separate search bar, so I can for example, quickly hit Cmd+T to bring up a new tab then type 'gi [search term]' to search Google Images directly.

The problem now is that I can get the first letter, perhaps the first few, but cant type anything else because the address bar loses focus.

I was recently doing some 'house-cleaning' on my computer, and for reasons known only to the ninny-gods, I delected all my security certificates. Now, when I try to login to gmail, ebay, my bank accounts, or any https:// site, I get a warning message "This Connection is Untrusted." I click the links provided to overcome the security message, but every time I go back to the site I have to jump through all the hoops again. I see a small box that can be clicked to confirm the security exception, but the little box that needs to be clicked to 'make the exception permanent' is always greyed-out. I know I am on the right sites - have been using the links on the bookmarks toolbar for years without problems. This just started after I deleted the certificates.

I have tried everything. Reloaded Firefox (am using 3.6.4) deleted and reloaded the bookmarks, follow the instructions when I get the error message. Nothing works. As soon as I close my browser, then go back online, I'm back to the error messages.

Can anyone help?
