Any email address is converted to a link, Most notably, the example address at mail.google.com between the username and password entry boxes.

Normally, this would be something to be ignored, at the worst, but when I pressed tab to switch from username to password, it went to the email link. I could learn a new habit of pressing tab twice, but I'm lazy. :P

Different kind of "crash", upon opening FF, the tabs and page lock up regardless of start page - toolbars and window buttons stay active

I am running Windows 7 on an HP Pavilion laptop. For the last 10 days or so, when I open FF, it partially crashes. The toolbars I have work and are clickable as is the menus and close/minimize buttons. The tabs become locked, if I have anything hovered, the tooltip hangs as well as anything on the webpage because inaccessible. The only fix, is to open it and hurry to try to click to change the page and seems to "force" FF to work and as long as it's open and I get the click in - it runs just fine and dandy for everything including flash. It's just upon opening a new window for FF. Sometimes it will take 5 or 6 window openings to "catch" and move pages. It affects pop up windows like my banking time out, where the window locks so I cannot click continue, but can close it or push toolbar buttons.

I have many websites that I frequent, and I was wondering how I can add a new one to the window pane that shows up under the web address entry. Instead of entering a web address, I would like to click on the down arrow in the right hand side of the web address pane, and be able to simply click on the website I would like to add.
