When I open "Preferences" dialog and try to edit any options which are represented with checkboxes or radio buttons when I point mouse at them the text becomes the same color as the background so you can't read it. First I thought it had something to do with my gtk theme settings but other gtk programs show their dialogs fine, so it must be a firefox issue.

I use Honeywell software to control our heating and air conditioning system. I cannot access this internal web site with Mozilla 3.6 (I get a timeout after a long delay). I had to roll back to 3.5 in order to get it to work again. What internet interfaces were changed for 3.6, and has anyone else had problems? This upgrade also made it so IE didn't work for this site either. Thanks.

Any links that open as new windows or pop-ups will not work in Firefox, even when I disable pop-up blocker. For example in Gmail I can click a person's e-mail as a hyperlink and it is supposed to open a new e-mail message to that address in a separate window. However, when I try it in Firefox, nothing happens, the window won't open. No link that operates this way will work. I have tried disabling pop-up blocker but the problem still happens.

I used to be able to edit web pages in Netscape and upload them via WS_FTPLE but latest version doesn't seem to be able to. Internet says Firefox (which we've been using for quite some time) is supposed to be "equivalent/better" than Netscape so looked for, and can't find, where and how to edit web pages so I can upload them via WS_FTPLE. Please could you advise if this is possible and where/how to do it? Many thanks.
