You have got to be kidding me, Mozilla! You claimed that Firefox 7.0 would consume less memory than its predecessors. Well, FF7.0 does consume less memory, but when I upgraded to Firefox 7.0.1 and used the browser, it now consumes MORE memory than FF7.0 did before, and it is now at nearly 300,000 KB to nearly 500,000 KB! And that was on my first use! The second or other times I used it, Firefox 7.0.1 only consumes less memory, than the first time I used the browser! Mozilla, when will you wise up and fix the memory leaks again?

Please help me with random crashes of Firefox 7.1. I'm not sophisticated enough to give you programming data. The ting is I'd like to continue to use this browser, but feel that I can't due to very frequent crashes...which causes loss of info and restarts w/ the report to Mozilla Firefox. By the way no results from anyone on that one. I have Win 7, an HP G-60, and communicate on FB, use You tube, Gmail, Yahoo. Not asking for much, eh! just want a fix, please.

I have just installed Firefox 7 on my new iMac that is running on Lion OS 10.7.2 and found that all hover states (rollovers) do not work here at all, i dun get dropdown menus or css colour change on any of my own websites or on other websites. I did move some of my profile files from the old iMac into the new one and everything else works fine. it also works on my old iMac which is running on Snow Leopard OS. but i have notice that its really slow on my Snow Leopard iMac and often just hangs on random pages for no reason.

Can someone tell me what i should do? I have tried moving the whole profile folder for the old iMac, when that did work, i started a new profile and move the recommended files only as shown on here http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox. and it still doesn't work. Help please.

How can I separate the "Icons and Text" of the browser control buttons (Back, Forward, etc.) from the Icons on the Add-on toolbar?

At home, this is not an issue. I don't know why it's different here at work--same installation, same settings (as far as I can tell). Windows Vista Firefox 7.0.1 Status-4-Evar installed to turn add-on bar into a status bar

I have a NoScript add-on icon in the corner, which works fine. If I add a GreaseMonkey icon from the Customize menu, the "Icon and Text" appears for that icon, like the Icon and Text from the browser controls (Home, stop, etc). Other add-on icons also show Icon and Text (S4E, for instance). NoScript is the only one I've found so far which collapses down to just an Icon.

This leads to the status (add-on) bar having a much larger height than I like. Essentially what I want is for only the Icon to appear in the Status bar (Add-on toolbar), while keeping Icons and Text in the Browser controls. My current workaround is simply removing the other add-on icons from the status (add-on) toolbar, but that takes away the ease of toggling and setting options.

Please tell me if I can provide you with anything else, and thanks for your help.

Edit: I've got some screenshots to show what I mean. desired behavior problem when icon is added

On the toolbar there are arrows for going back/forward one page at a time. That feature no longer works. Every time I click on a link I can never go back to the previous page. The arrows are greyed out as though I am at the first page loaded in that tab. I have tried re-installing, clearing history to no avail.

Any suggestions?

After upgrade to FF7.0.1 (on Win7 Pro-64) I sometimes see a strange behaviour: while downloading a couple of files to the same folder, FF does occasionally change to another download folder - without request. I.e. I save files to folder A, suddenly FF offers me folder B. After choosing back to A, a couple of files later FF offers folder G, and so on. While working 10 - 12 hours with my PC, this happens once or twice a day. It doesn't depend on the file's format, happens with docs, videos, pics, pdfs, zips and other formats.

I have Firefox 7 and I'm using it in my netbook. The screen is very small so I want to have as less UI as possible. I'd like to know if it's possible to remove or disable the vertical scrbollbar. Thanks

There isn't really too much more to say. The screen resolution is 1024 x 600. And most of the sites don't fit, so even 20 px more would be great.

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 7, I've experienced an intermittent issue where, upon trying to load a site, the status bar says "Connecting...", and sits there without loading anything for several minutes. This typically happens after several minutes of normal use. During this time, Firefox is unable to connect to any site. It is also unable to check for updates. There are no error messages; it simply displays the "spinning wheel" icon and provides no further feedback.

Closing the tab where the problem initially occurred doesn't help, but completely closing down and restarting Firefox does. However, the problem typically reoccurs after several minutes of normal use following a restart.

No other application is affected. Internet Explorer, MSN Live Messenger, Thunderbird, and other network applications continue to operate normally during the period that Firefox is unable to load sites.

I do not believe that it's a firewall issue. The problem occurs even when all firewall software - including the built-in Windows Firewall - has been disabled.

Additionally, if I just let Firefox "spin" for several minutes, the problem abruptly clears up on its own, and the site I'd originally requested loads normally. As with a restart, when the problem has cleared up in this fashion, it typically reoccurs after several minutes of normal use.

This is a straight HTML (no JavaScript, no CSS) page with a tiled background image (128x128 pixel JPEG). After about 2/3 of the roughly 3,000 lines of this page the background image stops, with a smooth horizontal divide: the tiled image background above, and a white background below. The discontinuity moves up and down some while scrolling this page, but remains a clean horizontal break.

This is new behavior with Firefox 7. The background image was displayed throughout the full page with Firefox 6 and earlier.

We're publishing Firefox through Citrix which works correctly. We want to set a few settings that are locked and some that are set as initial preferences. When creating the mozilla.cfg with minimal settings that are locked, everything works correctly.

We've tried to remove some of the settings to make is as basic as possible and still get the message.

I recently was prompted to update my Flash player and did so. Afterwards, Flash no longer worked. I get an error message saying "The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed. No report available." Reloading the page over and over, it never works. Does not work on any website I try with Flash.

OSX 10.7.2 Firefox 7.0.1 Using whatever is the most up to date version of Flash right now (can't figure out the version number).

I tried uninstalling Flash and re-installing, didn't help. Disabled all add-ons, restarting, no go. Tried restarting the entire system, still no go.

Works perfectly fine in Safari.

The question pretty much sums it up. Basically, I can attach documents to my emails in other browsers (and could do firefox - my favourite browser - until I updated my flash to the latest version 2 days ago). Now the other browsers can still operate and attach items in my web mail but Firefox cannot. I can click "Attachment" in my web mail but where the others actually attach the item I select from my hard drive, Firefox merely allows me to click on the chosen attachment and then nothing happens, no attachment or processing or transferring of data/attachment occurs. So I am having to move to another browser until this can be resolved, which is a shame.
