Up until Version 6.0.2 FF supports the following command via the address bar "javascript:window.resizeTo(1280,1024);". In version 7.0.1 and in the beta version 8 - this is no longer supported. I use this all day in my role as a project manager to test web pages in different screen resolutions and I've had to downgrade back to 6.0.2 just for this feature.

Has the support for this been withdrawn permanently or is there a way to enable it in v7 or v8?

Thanks.

How do I prompt Firefox to ask to save a password. Once I say "no" it never asks again (but now I would like it to remember the password for certain sites). I have also changed my password on some sites (while on another computer) and I cannot find out how to get Firefox to remember new passwords. I'm using Firefox 6.0.1 on a mac. I'm not using private browsing. I have 'remember passwords for sites' clicked and there are no exceptions. I've tried removing cookies, history, looking at page info.

Something labelled "npFFApi 1.0.0.1" has made a place for itself in Firefox v6.0 on the Add-ons>Plugins page. There is a USELESS link to (it says) "More" that opens a More page but gives nothing more: no info, no name of source or provider, no CLUE to what it does. The More page is probably a Mozilla product, but it fails to contribute the least little thing about this plugin, and that is disappointing. WHAT is it, why do I need it? Maybe it is spyware? Please advise.

Some websites automatically assign an icon when I add them to my bookmark bar. For brevity sake, I delete the description so I can have more bookmarks lined up across the top of the browser page. Other websites do not generate an icon (its an icon of a blank page, a generic default setting I suppose). I want to be able to assign an icon for my bookmarks that do not have a unique icon.

"AVG Secure Search" is obviously a kind of malware that attaches itself to FF. Is Mozilla working on killing it?

Whenever I encounter a suspicious website (like a fake anti-virus site, porn redirect, etc), I will close Firefox 6 by using the Windows Task Manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL then Applications/Close). I do this because suspicious websites often force you to click on something before you can close your browser [Example: Are you sure you want to navigate away from this website? Yes/No]. I do not want to click on anything that may install malware. After this forced termination when I re-open Firefox, it attempts to restore my last session automatically. This of course re-opens the same suspicious website and I have to close Firefox a second time with CTRL-ALT-DEL. After that second forced termination I get the "Well this is embarrassing" page and I can choose to start a new session. My question: Is there any way to stop Firefox from trying to automatically restore an old session when it is forcibly closed or terminated? By the way...In Tools/Options/General/Startup, I am set to "show my home page" on startup.
