When I try to use the in-browser Add-ons Manager, I can never progress beyond the "Loading..." phase. I still have the Download, Search and Options available. I have waited 5-10 minutes to see if the loading finishes. So far, it has not. I do not remember what theme I am running. The only add-ons I remember are NoScript, KeyScrambler, and Privacychoice. All my add-ons and themese should be up-to-date as of 8/31/2011.

I am using my work computer to log into gmail, aol, etc. via Firefox. And because of security, I NEVER want Firefox to save a password for any website I log into. Consequently, every time I log into anything via Firefox I get that annoying drop down menu asking if I want to save the password, never save the password or not now. If there a way for me to turn this off completely and stop asking me that and NEVER save a password?

Most Windows applications let you open files on the disk. They use a set of menu conventions that have been around since at least windows 3.0 back in the early 90s. What does MOZILLA do? Oh, lets throw all of that out the Window (pun intended) and leave you this vestige "Firefox" tab that you can pull down a tiny minority of those menu item.

So back to my original question: Where the fuck is the FILE-> OPEN menu?

I want to check a file on the hard disk attached to my PC. Guess what? I can't Maybe you made the menu so blindingly obvious that a software engineer with 30 years of programming experience like me just can't see the forest for all those pesky trees. I have no clue. So am I supposed to put the path into my URL window? That's easier than "File -> Open?" WTF Mozilla?

Before Firefox updated to 6, my user ID's and passwords that I had saved or ask the website to remember were always available. If I shut off the browser and later started a new session, my ID's were still on the website when I went to them. After yesterday's, 8/31/2011, update to 6, when I close the browser after a session, the ID's and passwords are gone and must be re-entered. This happens only when I'm surfing as a 'standard' user. If I surf the web as an administrator, all my saved info is still there.

New user (new computer--no issues for 9 days) Re: tabbed browsing, the plus sign (+) you use to open a new tab is suddenly gone. Have rummaged thru all the help notes and have reloaded x3 an add--on (extension??) for new tabs. In other words, I don't know where to look to get this feature back.
