Fx 3.6.3. By default, all my history, cookies & cache are always cleared on close. I launched a new session and did nothing but sort my bookmarks. I did not visit any sites.

Yet my cache was full of entries to all of the sites whose bookmarks I had sorted.

Can someone explain to me why this happens? It seems like a privacy issue to me.

This happened

Not sure how often

== I just noticed it today very randomly

The youtube download add-on has worked like a champ, then suddenly today when I try to download a video, I get "0 bytes." At first, I thought this might be because we just got a new cable modem yesterday, but I've now seen references to youtube changing their site within the last day and that this has caused the problem. Unfortunately, the one thread I saw on this listed the question as "solved" because someone linked to a third-party plugin, but that only works for Windows. I'm a Mac user. Is there hope that Firefox will soon offer an update of the video downloader that plays nice with youtube? Or was my first suspicion, that the brand new cable modem, might be the issue?

All I want to do is connect with MSNBC via Mozilla. But each time I click on the Mozilla icon, up comes Firefox with "updates." How can Firefox believe that it can force its way into my home, seize my computer, and then force me to sit here while waiting for you to do its thing? Leave us alone--if we need updates, allow us to do it AT OUR CHOOSING & not when it delights you!
