I downloaded 4b2 on to a new Windows 7 machine. I want to download some "older" addons that aren't yet compatible with 4b2. So I downloaded the Compatibility checker addon, plus manually ensured 'extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0b=false' was set in about:config.

When I go to the Firefox Add-On site, I get an error that there was a "connection error" with addons.firefox.com ONLY when I try to download a non-compatible addon (AdBlock worked, for instance, but it's compatible).

In the latest edition of FireFox 3, my ability to log-in or provided feedback to forums at various website (e.g. newspapers: WSJ, local) became disabled. Either the log-in/feedback buttons don't show or they don't work. I upgraded to FireFox 4, hoping that would solve the problem. It didn't. However, using Chrome, I don't encounter the problem. What has happened to my FireFox browser??

For example, this link (http://www.coloradoan.com/) is the home page of my local paper. The white area, just above the headline box, should contain my profile and picture information, but it's missing. If I use Chrome, it's there. What gives?

How can I change the font on any other page? It all changed when I upgraded to Mozilla 4 and it's too harsh for my eyes to read

It's gonna make me actually revert back to the old version if I can. All my fonts on my homepages are messed up and are either too big or too small. I tried changing the font size in Tools --> Content --> Font but it doesn't change the actual webspace's font -- Just the mozilla font. This is seriously irking me. Otherwise, I love the upgrade but if I have difficulty reading anything, why even bother?
