A couple weeks ago, for some reason, FF 8.0.1 stopped working on my OS X machine. (I've used 7, and now 9beta as the work around). Since that time I've had a whole list of problems. One issue is that every time I open FF it attempts to open the session that crashed, no matter what I've tried, it won't go away.

This includes deselecting the tabs prior to the restore; allowing the tabs to load, then closing them individually. I follow this with a proper quit from FF.

Everything is current (operating software, FF, etc) so I'm uncertain what's going on...

For the last 2-3 months, Firefox no longer records history. When I click on Show All History, it is blank. This occurs only on my desktop, not my laptop. Both are Macs running OS 10.7.2 and Firefox 8.0.1. I don't remember making any changes to any of the settings or to preferences. It just seems to have happened one day and I have been ignoring but would like to correct it.

I have set my homepage to Google. On my old laptop, right below my toolbars, there would be another line that showed a list of search options: "Web" "Images" "Video" etc. For my work, I use the "images" and "Scholar" options constantly. I got a new laptop, and that line has vanished. It seems simple, but I can't seem to figure out how to get that line or toolbar back. I miss it!

I just tried to upgrade Firefox and got this message when I tried to put the icon in the applications folder: The operation can’t be completed because the item “libsmime3.dylib” is in use. How do I deal with this? Thank you.

I have been using an old version of Firefox without difficulty. I need to install as I am using Zotero to do research and it only runs on Firefox.

I'm finding that FF ver 8.0.1 is automatically preventing web pages from reloading. I get the message "firefox has prevented this web page from reloading automatically" and then there is an "Allow" button. I'd like to turn this feature off. I don't remember having the problem with previous versions. There isn't an "Options" tab under "Tools" any longer so I don't know where to find the right button to stop the action.

Dear Sirs, I had Firefox as my default on my old computer with Windows XP, however, I have recently upgraded to a Apple iMac with Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2. On my Windows PC I was able to save my user name and pass word for sites that required this. I would like to make Firefox the default browser on my Mac, however, I am reluctant to do so as I am unable to save the user manes and password for my web sites that require same. Consequently, I am using this medium to ascertain whether Firefox for Mac has this feature and in the event is does will you kindly advise me on how to activate this feature. Your prompt responas will be greatly appreciated. Regards
