Firefox did the automatic update to 3.6.16 and now it won't allow me to open a new tab. Page just refreshes if you choose 'File'-New Tab, and clicking on the tab icon doesn't result in anything. Have not noticed anything else that could be affecting how Firefox is working.

I can’t comment on Fox news, disqus is not responding. I have an account with Fox News and can login without trouble. When I try to comment or reply to articles a window will open and three dots will appear. At this point I should be able to type in a comment. The status line shows a number of servers at work but never completing a connection.

Firefox 4 is slow, it hangs and uses far-too much memory

I've just had to roll-back to Firefox 3.6.16. For those with a similar problem, here's the link: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

Firefox 4 became unusable. Firefox 3.6.16 is using about 110,00k of memory - but Firefox 4 was using, typically 160,000k but anything up to 200,000k causing my machine to hang as it struggled to find the memory.

The weird thing about the memory use was that it just kept on climbing - just a couple of tabs open, nothing special, but you watch the memory usage keep stepping on in about 200k increments.

There appears to be a major memory leak in Firefox 4, and until it is rectified it really is, for me, completely unusable. I had to use explorer to download 3.6.16 it was that bad.

Is anyone else having trouble with the back and forward buttons not working in FireFox 4? I installed 4 on an XP desktop and a Vista 64 laptop, and the forward and back buttons don't work on either installation. Does anyone know a fix for this? I tried deleting the "places" files in the profile and that does not help.

This doesn't happen on every single page, but VERY often when a new page loads (ie: gmail, Facbook login...) as soon as it is done loading i hear a loud high pitched sound. Far too often. It almost seems connected with the other problem Im having. When I get to a log in screen, the login box is filled at the same time as the sound, but the other annoying thing is to get rid of the pre-filled info (says enter login name, or enter phone #...) I have to double click and delete it. I know that is small, but with both issues all the time it really drives a guy nuts and slows down work.

An unsolicited add on called General Crawler 2.0 has suddenly appeared. Standard Firefox advice has not worked, nor has uninstalling Firefox and re-installing. When you uninstall it justs keeps coming back. If you disable it it stays there but you can't tell if the disable is genuine.

Current version 3.6.16 I sometimes get notices about my browser being " An Old Version" The browser is working fine. Several Add-on's like: Add Block, Https Everywhere and Forced TLS Configuration have been added.

I like the current set-up. After visiting the Mozilla site, I noticed the new version looks different that what I have now.

1. If I chose to Upgrade will the Add-on's be available? 2. Will my book marks be kept? 3. What are the pro's and Con's?

Windows Vista Installed.

Thanks... Jay

Will there be an update for DigitalPersona Extension 5.0.0.3790 to provide compatibility for FF4?

When downloading Firefox 4.0, DigitalPersona Personal 4.11.3805 with DigitalPersona Extension 5.0.0.3790 (from Mozilla Firefox Add-Ons) is incompatible. Fingerprint swipes only open the DPP application's Home Page. I had to uninstall FF 4 and re-install FF 3.6.16 in order to utilize fingerprint logon recognition.

DigitalPersona will no longer support DigitalPersona Personal as is evidenced by the following email I received from PersonalSupport@digitalpersona.com:

"Thank you for contacting DigitalPersona. We are extremely sorry to inform you there will be no update releases for DigitalPersona Personal in the future. We are also sorry to inform you there will be no updates for Firefox 4 nor Internet Explorer 9. You certainly can try to use either one, if they work for you great!. If they do not work, you will have to decide to either keep DPPersonal and forgo Firefox 4 or IE 9, or vice versa. DigitalPersona, regretfully, is leaving the consumer market and is focusing on numerous business and legal applications. In fact, again sorry to inform you, DigitalPersona Personal will not be supported after Mid-April of this year."

Hardware/Software:

Computer: HP DigitalPersonal Personal: 4.11.3805 OS: Windows 7 64bit Browser: Firefox 4 Fingerprint Reader Sensor: Validity Driver: 2.0.0.1

Will there be an update to this extension, or are there other software options to make the Validity Sensors, Inc. fingerprint reader compatible with FF4?
