I'd like to change the persona I'm using constantly, rather than manually editing it. Is there a way to randomize it from the ones I have downloaded every time it loads up? Or is there a way to make the personas different for each individual tab? Cheers all :) Oz

Well, it's not really that big of a problem, but I guess I've finally decided to try and solve this. I've spent some time skimming through the links I got from the Help section, Google, and 'About:Config'.

But most of that ends up on something unrelated--moving on though, my problem is simple: I really hate it when I double click the 'Scroll buttons' (What are these called anyway?) (the buttons next to the tabs on the far left and far right side in the tab-bar) it scrolls over an entire page instead of, as in the old days, would just scroll over two tabs.

Some people may like this, but it's not my thing. Anyway, I hope I was articulate enough that my problem is clear.

Summary: I really dislike the fact that when the 'tab-scroll-button' is double clicked it scrolls a page, rather than just two tabs.

Truly and Fishily yours, Fish Kiler

Illogical behavior and cursor movement on clicking in search box

Although I really prefer the strategy of click once in search box (top right, Google) to select a cursor insertion point and double-click to select a word or the entire box, I will accept the current "backward" strategy of clicking once to select the entire search box.

But if you are trying to correct a misspelled word and you EVENTUALLY (after painfully playing with clicking and delays) do get an insertion point, if you try to move the insertion point to a different word in the search box, it will sometimes move the insertion point BUT it will leave the cursor at the old point. What gives?

In general, I have found, of late, that it is such a pain to make a change in the search box (clicking, double-clicking, waiting, triple-clicking) that I always just try to retype the whole thing.

Am I missing something - the strategy seems so irrational!!

On a related note, often in the search text box, and also while typing in this question box (and elsewhere), random older words or letters of words that have been typed seem to appear (but are not actually used) on the right most margins of the boxes - very annoying

I have just switched from Internet Explorer to Firefox. I find the font and image size too small on Firefox. Can I increase it permanently to default to larger, easier to read size? I tried the zoom under style but I would need to use it every time I go to a new page which is not convenient.

I have an AJAX web application which is very sensitive to the number of connections allowed by the browser. Bad things happen when the limit is set up low: frozen screens, uncommitted transactions, deadlocks etc.

In order to prevent this I need to check the current value of configuration parameter "network.http.max-connections-per-server" programmatically (i.e. by the javascript code) and reject a request if the limit is too low with appropriate instructions to the user.

I guess it's possible because "about:config" renders all parameters values and even lets user to modify them. However the code behind the page is very complicated so I can't figure out how to perform my task. All I need is a function or method returning the current value of a given config parameter.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Sometimes when I open a new tab, the other one opens unexpectedly with some stupis adverts (www.gsming.com). I hate it, I have no idea how did it happen and I can't really remember when it started. It gets really annoying and I thought there's a websites black list on Firefox (I mean something where I input website's address and it won't open).

So my question is: Is there such list and if so, how do I use it? If not, how can I get rid of those opening tabs?
