First website used first use of FF 3.6.1: 1. My password didn't work to open my existing account on a website. 2. I called the site's customer service and changed password. 3. It would only open in new window. Each time I wanted to go to my account I had to open new window. 4. If I go to page 2 of my account, I have to reenter login info. If I go to another page on the site, I have to reenter login info. I have never had to do these things before, unless it had been a day or two since I last opened my account. Anyone else with this problem? Any suggestions to fix it at my end? Will FoxFire fix it at their end?

Since I use this site frequently, I have just begun using another browser and might have to stop using FF after being longtime user.

Sometimes the url of a webpage I have saved spontaneously disappears from the "location" column of the bookmarks organizer page, although it is still in the url field at the bottom of the page. The normal process of clicking on the bookmark and hitting delete doesn't work, so the bookmark becomes a useless phantom whose corresponding webpage cannot be accessed by clicking on the bookmark. How do I delete such a phantom bookmark?
