I sometimes see a video on a website that I'd like to save. I'd expect to click on it, and hit [copy], and [paste] it in a folder. Or [Save as...], and give it a name and address. But no: no can do. Is there a utility or plug-in I need, or is there a Firefox feature I'm unaware of? I'm running Windows Vista, on a dialup, so once I download something I'd rather keep it than do it again.

I am used to having a live news feed on my Mozilla home page. I went from 3.6.16 to v 4 and it is gone. I don't see how to find it again. Why must upgrades put us through all this? (another question I realize) I prefer the look of v3.6.16 so went back to it but it remains gone. Any help appreciated, I'll go back to v4 if I can add this back in. TIA.

I used to be able to change zoom using ctrl_scroll and it worked fine (to fit whole page on one screen with no scroll bars). Now, even after I do that, as soon as I go to a new site or change folders in gmail, it keep reverting back to a default zoom making the page too big to fit on one screen. It is particularly annoying with gmail..
