Advanced settings in Privacy Options does not allow me to set how long I want my history to remain. Can this be done.? History has to be manually deleted if I want to keep anything longer than when I close firefox or else it hangs on to everything until I do the manual delete. Any suggestions gratefully accepted. Thanks in advance

I am using a Mac OSX 10.6.8. & Firefox 5.01. Certain pages have overlapping text which sometimes results in partialy covering some click boxes. If I use Chrome or Safari they are ok on same pages. The example below will show a little of what I mean but on this site in particular when I go into it further the problem increases and I cannot for example access my account because the button I need to click on is covered over with text

Cant seem to find the TOOLS function. Can anyone help with this, has it been advantageously replaced with something else? Under Options there is nothing similar. What happened with this feature?

Would appreciate someone responding to this.

I do not find any tutorial specifically designed for FF 5 or am I not looking in the right places?

My system specs...

  • Intel Core 2 Quad 9550 running at 3.2GHz
  • 8GB of OCZ DDR2 6400
  • PNY GTX 460SSC
  • 4 WD Caviar Black SATA HD's totalling 4TB
  • LG Blu-ray Burner
  • Plextor DVD Burner
  • 1000W Corsair Modular Power Supply
  • Corsair Obsidian 700D Case

When I have Firefox open on the second monitor (not the one designated as my main monitor) and I try to open any drop down menu (including bookmark folders in the bookmark toolbar, the options menu or the bookmark menu) they flicker and disappear, leaving the outline of the menu behind and allowing me to still select something from the menu. I've attached multiple screenshot links below.

This happens every time, no matter which monitor I have designated as my main monitor. I did a fresh install of Windows 7 (x64) (low leveling the hard drive first), updated all of my drivers per manufacturers websites and Windows Update, installed Firefox 5.0.1 with no Add Ons and it still happened. If I swap which monitor is my main, the problem follows the secondary monitor. I was running an ATI Radeon HD 4870 and suspected the card (because ATI blows and won't stand behind one of their professional workstation cards that just caught fire in my PC and was less than a year and half old), so I went out and bought a new PNY GTX 460SSC card, downloaded the latest drivers and the problem persists. I rolled back my video drivers by one full release (from v275.xxx to v274.xxx) and the problem persists. I also just found out the menus are corrupted in Add Ons too, namely FireFTP menus when you drop them down.

Whenever I select the Bookmarks drop down menu, it is so big that it covers most of my screen. Then, when I go to a folder in the drop down menu if I pause at any other folder it opens and is so big that the drop down menu is completely covered. This is VERY irritating and I never had this problem before upgrading to Firefox 5.0. How do I cure it?? I am using a MacBook with a 13" screen

I keep getting the message telling me to enable third party cookies. The instructions for how to do so tell me to choose the options feature from the tools drop down menu, then to click on "privacy" and check a certain box that would enable cookies. This check box is not on the privacy menu. What do I do?

With the other 2, I get redirected to Yahoo.com. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks
