Why can't I wipe my address bar clean, even after deleting all my history? I ticked everything but my address bar is still full of the website adresses I've visited and it still does the autocomplete when I type in as if my browsing history is still there. The e-mail address/profile name autocomplete however, still gets wiped clean after deleting the history and that's how I know that clearing my private data still works. At least, partly. Help!

I can't access my hotmail account among some other websites since upgrading to 3.6.8 on my macbook. I get the following message: "The proxy server is refusing connections. Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connections. Check the proxy settings to make sure that they are correct. Contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working." I can't even find the proxy settings anymore.

I found a post about this issue, which was marked 'solved', but it isn't! To use Firebug, I had to upgrade Firefox and since I did, I can't use the 'preview' function in Dreamweaver (It works only once, when Firefox is closed, but I don't like to close and re-open Firefox every time I want to preview a page). Downgrading is not an option, as I can't use Firebug and I really not think Adobe has to solve a problem caused by Firebox, as suggested in the previous post.

After Firefox updated yesterday, the YouTube home page takes forever to load. Once there, the videos can not be viewed and the video window is black. Embedded YT videos can not be seen on webpages and blogs (they appear as solid white boxes).

Meanwhile, Vimeo and Flash advertisements work fine. I cleared the cache and that didn't help. I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash, and rebooted and that didn't help.

I'm using a G5 Mac, and haven't had problems with YouTube before. A few other folks are reporting this problem in the YouTube forum. If the problem was with YouTube in general, thousands of people would be reporting it. I'm wondering if the problem is related to the Firefox for Mac that was updated yesterday?
