My data source is a daily table on a Web page. In FF 3.16 I click in the table and select File>Save Frame As.... In the Save As dialog box, I key a file name ending in ".txt". The data is saved in a tab-separated text file that I open in Excel.

In FF 5.0.1 File>Save Page As… results in Excel opening a blank sheet.

Hi. I have been running firefox since it first came out. I remember it made internet explorer look like your were browsing on dialup no joke. Anyhow, with the latest firefox it runs very slow on my laptop. My laptop is older. It's a HP 6735s. I tried a different browser - Opera. Opera runs perfectly fine on this laptop but does not display everything corrects(forms,buttons). I did notice Opera uses way more memory than firefox.

Is there anything I can do to speed up firefox or make it use more memory? Currently if I try running firefox in safemode it uses at least 80% cpu usage and does the same w/o safemode. I really would like to continue using firefox as it does seem the best browser. Is my laptop too old to run firefox? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

I can install version 5.0.1 but it will not run. I had this version working when someone elso was using my computer. I do not know how it happened but the compute froze and I could not run Firefox afterwards. I took Firefox out of my computer. Downloaded the latest version again and tried to run it. I did this many times to no avail

Usually the search is in the center of the screen. When I select my bookmark http://www.google.co.uk the page opens with search in the middle of the screen, but I cannot type in it. If I just start typing any letter, the page changes and the google search moves to the top of the page and the address bar now reads: http://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en&cp=1&gs_id=c&xhr=t&q=facebook&pf=p&sclient=psy&site=&source=hp&pbx=1&oq=f&aq=0&aqi=g5&aql=&gs_sm=&gs_upl=&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=e66c6e0adf04fb7&biw=1143&bih=696

Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm using Firefox 5.0.1 ; OS is Vista and this weirdness started today 28th July 2011. Any ideas on how to fix this. Please note I'm not talking about google toolbar.

"Amelia, it was just a false alarm". This are great news indeed. My deep gratitude to all you open source coders. Love your work. my original comment:

firefox browser started up today (7-29)telling me that 

Better Privacy had been updated, that's nice, but the url <chrome://bprivacy/content/BetterPrivacyUpdated.html> doesn't add up, also the article was rife with typos eg first sentence = This are great news. Is this a scam or just sloppy work? either way I am concerned.
