Whenever I watch any type of video with Firefox, the audio and video do not sync. They are fine if I watch them in IE but I hate using IE (so very slow). I have tried updating firefox, but I have the most recent update. I have updated Java and Adobe as well and none of these seem to be the problem. It doesn't matter which website I use, all videos do this when viewed with Firefox.

Drop-Down Menus Not Working

I have Windows 7, and when I installed Firefox, almost every time I use a drop-down menu, the menu will display for a split second, but will not stay up. Drop-down menus work fine in IE, but not in Firefox. I have to use the directional arrows to select from the list of choices, and this is problematic with menus with many choices. This happens every time I use a drop-down menu, so the problem is not site- specific.

Operating system

Windows 7

When watching full screen video in firefox the picture freezes and the audio continues streaming. I had at first thought this was limited to netflix but now see the same problem when viewing flash video sites. Once the picture freezes the computer has to be rebooted. This only happens in firefox. Explorer streams perfectly in fullscreen. The problem began after updating to firefox 3.6 as I had no problems prior to that.

Operating system

Windows XP

Like many people I suck at typing. For some reason, a certain accidental keystroke combo makes me go back the to the previous page, thereby losing everything I typed, such as form data or forum comments. This happens randomly and I NEVER use keyboard shortcuts while browsing because I always use the mouse except when typing. I really, really want to disable all keyboard shortcuts but there is no option to do this. What do I do? Go back to Exploder? I hope not!

I noticed it a few weeks ago. When I just search in the address bar as I normally do Firefox has begun using Bing search as oppose to Googles "I'm Feeling Lucky". This is very frustrating, as Google is far superior to Bing.

This only seems to happen however when I search one word in the address bar. If I search 2 or more words, it continues to use Google.

I have searched for solution to this already and nothing seems to work. I don't have any Bing/Microsoft search bars installed. I have no search extensions from Microsoft. And there are no updates on my computer that have been recommned to be removed on other forums.

Please get my Firefox back to normal!

Want to turn this off: This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to login.facebook.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Technical Details

login.facebook.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate will not be valid until 7/23/2009 8:03 AM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)

I find mouseover "info links" that pop up these little information windows to be extremely irritating. Some pages are so densely populated with these things that moving my mouse will invariably pop unwanted stuff. I have tried addblock, and it generally works to filter commercial content, but really, I am not out to eliminate the adds, I just want to take control of MY browsing experience, and get my blood pressure under better control. I read a lot of articles on academic sites and such, where terms and definitions are often hyperlinked, and the mouseover popups can make reading tedious.

Is there some about:config setting or settings file that I can tweak to control this insane behavior? Maybe I am wrong, but in addition to the annoyance, I view mouseover popups as potential automatic malware launchers, and do not appreciate this unsolicited behavior whilst browsing.

There seems to be a conspiracy of silence on this topic - google links on the topic seem to lead to deleted posts. IMO, this does not seem to be an unreasonable thing to ask from a customer perspective.
