In options, if I check the box "Open pop-ups in a new tab" nothing happens when I click the link. If I uncheck the box, clicking the link takes me to a new Firefox window directly to the page. If I click the same link in Chrome or IE9 I get a jscript window that asks me a question before taking me to the page.

In v3.X... you could get to prior pages viewed on a site/tab by clicking an arrow that was part of the Forward/Back navigation arrows. Clicking the arrow gave you a drop down list of the prior pages you had viewed (from that tab). That feature is missing in v6.0. Any way to get this back?

Windows IE has a drop down arrow next to the forward and back button that allows you to go directly to a previously viewed site. I dont see that feature on firefox. How do I go directly to a previously viewed site? I am not talking about history. I am talking about a viewed site in the current session.

Thanks for your time, John Dimmett

Firefox 6 as with previous versions have a tendency to overlay fonts and images. This makes it difficult to read some pages. I sometime use Google and have problems with overlay. I prefer to use Firefox for its open source programming. Perhaps you can look into this and let me know details. If you would like I can send you a couple of websites so you can observe the problem.

Just upgraded to firefox 6, in previous versions bookmarks were searchable both by "name" and by "url." Now they appear to only be searchable by name.

If you type a url into the search box, even if it contains most of the "name" within it, search does not locate the bookmark. In the past, I could copy a url and put it … (read more)

If you type a url into the search box, even if it contains most of the "name" within it, search does not locate the bookmark. In the past, I could copy a url and put it in the search box (both on the bookmarks sidebar and the "show all bookmarks" popout library) and it would search and locate the bookmark. This would tell me last time visited, date added etc. Since upgrading to firefox 6, entering a URL does not return any results. So for instance, a flickr photostream is at url - "www.flickr.com/1234abcd" if I copy that into the search box I go no results (however, I used to in previous versions) However, if i type only "1234abcd" in the search bar, it does find the bookmark. This is long winded enough so I won't go into detail as to why this is an issue, but it is a huge inconvenience. Thanks for any help.

When you sign into secure sites there was a lock on the bottom right hand side of page showing that the site was safe and secure. If the secure site was not secure a red line would cover the lock. I do not have this anymore since I updated from 3.8 to 6. Are my secure sites such as banking etc still secure. Why have I lost this lock symbol???

I know how to get to the saved password list. As far as I can see there isn't any way to add site login details and password. You only have a remove and a remove all button. No add button.

Maybe you would consider this for the next upgrade.

Thank you, Richard
