Running Firefox 3.6.13 on Windows 7 Ultimate. Recently downgraded from Firefox 4 beta 7 due to too many addons not being updated or compatible with the betas yet. Anyway, my problem is this:

I have a fair amount of bookmarks. 606 at the moment. 99% of them are not in subfolders - they are just loose under Bookmarks Menu. This is how I like it, since I don't actually use the menu anyway, I call up my bookmarks from the location bar by typing. So I don't see much point in organising them all. However, I do need them sorting alphabetically, since I also use the Firefox Home app on my iPod Touch, and here I wish to see all my bookmarks in a nice long sorted list. Now, before 3.6.13, I never had a problem with sorting... I'd simply right-click "Organise Bookmarks" on the Bookmarks menu, and choose "Sort By Name". This would sort everything nicely. Another way was to open the Library, and do the same thing on the Boomarks Menu item in the navigation tree on the left. All bookmarks would be sorted instantly and perfectly.

However, in Firefox 4 beta 7, it would sort them very slowly, in fact you'd actually SEE bookmarks moving up and down the list in slow-motion! If done via the Library, the context-menu would actually stop appearing on right-click. Performing a right-click in another application or elsewhere in Firefox would restore the menu. Downgrading back to 3.6.13 has not resolved these problems. So is this a new problem, or something left over from Firefox 4 beta 7?

On the same topic, using the column headers to sort in the Library did not used to actually save them in this order, since performing a sync with another computer/device would show them unsorted on the new device. Is this now fixed, or it it only intended to sort that current view and not be persistent?

Hebrew text is missing various letters and diacritics in the following URL. I couldn't read this text properly because so much wasn't shown. It was also missing in the "View Source" window. Perhaps it's a bug with the content itself (somesuch UTF-8 or UTF-16 bug) but both Chrome and Safari show it much much better. BTW, I tried to send it through the "Report broken website feature" but it hangs without finishing.

There are blank spaces on the webpage where there should be icons which allow you to surf that website. However if you click on the correct blank space then you can surf the site however this is very frustrating because by trial an error one has to find the correct place to click. Sometimes there are generic icons which do not give an indication what they are for, so one has to click all the icons to find the appropriate one to allow you to negogiate the site. Please help.

I use a bank website that uses challenge questions to make sure you are real. It also asks Is this a private computer that should be registered to your SecurEntry profile? and you check yes In FF and not in other browsers (IE, Safari or Chrome at least) every time you return to this logon it forgets that it is registered and you face the challenge questions again. all of the browsers separately require you to answer the challenge the first time but never again so it seems that there is something specific to FF and there is no storage of ID at the bank which actually ID's the computer. It must rather ID the browser on your computer. Any ideas?

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium. I use the Downloads folder for all items I download from 'net. It used to keep each one until I chose to delete. After Christmas company left, it would not do that any more, deleting things every day. Is there a setting to keep v.s. delete each item? I am using AVG (not-free), and that is new. Surely it's not the culprit. I know I CAN delete items, pause, etc, but can't find how to do a setting to tell it NOT to delete automatically.
