After the update to Firefox 6,0 the add-ons Manager does not show the list of add-ons, but in permanently showing the "Loading" sign when started.

Most of the add-ons are working, but there is no chance to make modifications.

What can I do to make the add-ons Manager running again ?

I was just upgraded to the new Firefox 6.0 today and I noticed immediately that the hyperlinks that I've got in MS Word documents no longer activate when I hit Ctrl + Click. Previously, the corresponding URL was launched automatically in Firefox.

Is this a glitch with my computer, a problem created by extensions that were disabled with the upgrade, or a bug not yet addressed with Firefox 6.0?

headliner: save and quit option has disappeared so how do I get it back?

this msg to the Firefox team....you could'a told us and/or offered the same solutions that our good bud TonyE did. (see forum at https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/789377#answer-232207) Firefox, you can do better than that, and suggest you put up the info on your website, showing instructions or better yet, just have your team reinstall the defaults to bring up the much desired feature: "Save and Quit" window again in your new versions!

thx for your time....hope someone actually reads, comprehends and acts on this information instead of blowing it off.

My preferences allow pop-ups and yet when I try to generate a letterfrom an online database I'm using for work, FifreFox "prevents po-ups from this site" Why?

I need to access an online database to generate letters for an assigned project. I click on the appropriate link to generate letters, the file is conveyed to my downloads, and I open it using Adobe to create a pdf. This worked fine for the first 5 letters. When I tried to generate the 6th, a yellow banner appeared informing me that "FireFox prevented this site from opening a pop-up window" which prevented me from getting the letter into downloads to open in Adobe. Even though I don't have the pop-up blocker on, I clicked on preferences and found the site in question already listed as allowed. Why is this happening? How can I continue my work?

Why is it that now for every new FF update a feature is removed?

With the latest release I can no longer "hover over" a link with my pointer to see what URL it is going to.

This is a very important feature and should never have been removed.

To FF programmers, STOP removing features! Please!
