I started using foxfire, but for some reason when I go to my yahoo mail the font size is so huge. How can I correct this so the e-mail font is normal again. This has only happened to my e-mail and if I open an attachment it has large font too.

I'm running FF 4 and every time I close it and re-open, I get the error message "Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections." I go into Options and change it to No Proxy and the same thing will happen the next time I open. FF will not keep the settings I make. Before a suggestion is made to upgrade, I will not go to FF5 until my favourite add-ons are made compatible. Thank you in advance.

When I was using Internet Explorer, the browser allowed me to export my favorites into a text file that I could attach to an email, or just keep. This made sure that if the program ever crashed or those kinds of things were lost, I would always have all of my favorites that I could then import again if necessary. I was just wondering if that feature occurs on the Firefox browser. If it doesn't, will I ever lose my bookmarks? How can I ensure that I don't have to remember all of my favorites off the top of my head?

When I click on the red Firefox button, I do not see tools listed. I went to the help screen and it only tells where to find tools in Wiindows XP. I work in Ancestry.com and need to clear my cache often, so need access to tools. Is FF4 not good for Windows 7 64 bit? If so, why didn't it warn me before I downloaded it? Thanks, Debbie

/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found

I am trying to run the firefox from firefox-4.0.tar.bz2 on CentOS 5.6 and get the error message,

./firefox-bin: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by firefox/libxul.so)

Firefox does not start.

I thought having a copy of the library in the local directory would help, so I made a link:

ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.8 libstdc++.so.6

then I got the error message,

./firefox-bin: /firefox/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by firefox/libxul.so)

My version of glibc is:

$ rpm -q glibc glibc-2.5-58.el5_6.2 glibc-2.5-58.el5_6.2

Since updating to Firefox 4, all new bookmarks are automatically saved to the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder. How do I change that default to put them into the original "Bookmarks" folder? I know you can double-click on the star, which gives me the option to put them where I want, but I have to do that every time. I access them from the original menu bar, and having to drag & drop each individual bookmark is seems very extreme.

In previous versions of Firefox I was able to type into the address bar and it would perform a "I'm feeling lucky search". For example if I typed "firefox" into the address bar it would take me to www.mozilla.com. This feature seems to be missing in the latest version. Any ideas how to enable this feature again?

I am using FF 4.0.1 and have been a FF user since the earliest version released - never really had any issues UNTIL FF 4.0.1.

Every time I start up FF now, I get the error message: "The proxy server is refusing connections". I am not using a proxy server.

I have to go to Tools>Options>Connection Settings to select the "No Proxy" option EVERY TIME I start up FF. It does not remember this setting and keep resetting itself to think I'm using a proxy server. This must a be bug and I've seen many others post about this issue but haven't really found a workable solution as yet.

I have tested with Chrome and Explorer and don't have this problem with those browsers.

If there is a fix for this incredibly annoying, time-wasting problem, please share it.

Thanks
