I've a macbook pro, OS X 10.6.5, Firefox 5.0.1. Each time I try to load a web page, also a simple Google search or a Facebook post, Firefox hang on "connecting" for many seconds, with nearly no network I/O activity at all. Then, after 30/40 seconds, the page magically loads quickly. The problem doesn't happen with Safari or Google Chrome.

Since I updated to version 5.0 of firefox, 95% of pictures do not display in the body of emails using my yahoo account. If I go to forward the email however I can find them displayed in the forwarding window. I do have all pictures set to display in the ff settings, and have not made any setting changes before or after the update. At first I thought it was the "New" yahoo mail, which I switched to from the "classic", but I cannot switch back. I finally opened my yahoo mail in IE, and the pictures show right up.

Firefox 5 no longer has a way to save tabs when a Firefox window is closed (different than quitting the Firefox Application)

CLARIFICATION: This appears to be a Mac only issue.

In Firefox 4, closing a firefox window (perhaps only the last firefox window - I only ever use one window) would ask you if you wanted to save your tabs as long as you edited your about:config so that browser.showQuitWarning was set to true, but after upgrading to Firefox 5, this no longer works.

I've managed to set up Firefox 5 so that if i quit the application my tabs are saved without asking and they are restored upon re-launching the Application, but at least in OSX Snow Leopard, closing the only open window while leaving the Application running causes Firefox to forget your tabs and I've been unable to find a way to restore or proactively save these tabs.

I've started to change my workflow to always quit Firefox 5, but every now and then I forget and close the window instead, and *poof*, there go my tabs.

Is there any workaround to this problem?

I have tried two ways to mark my Homepage: General Tab "use current" at selected Page - then OK. Then I tried the suggested moving that page's icon to the "home" icon and confirming that I want THAT page as my Home Page.

When I open a new window, I only get the 3 pages I got when I upgraded to new version of Firefox - these methods do not hold my desired page as a "Homepage"

Lately whenever I go to download a file from the Internet it gives me a message I've never seen before. It says a file name (which doesn't exist on my pc) then tells me that I need to either change the properties of the file or try downloading to another file. But the download box never pops up anymore and it says this for everything I try to download. What's going on?
