The Home, End, Page Up and Page Down keys no longer work correctly in Firefox since version 5.x (I'm fairly sure that 4.x was fine). This only seems to affect my XP laptop: versions 5 and up seem fine on two Win 7-64 machines I have access to.

As an example of this functionality, go to the sound on sound website. None of the above keys have any affect when pressed. However, if I hit Ctrl-End, the cursor(?!) jumps to the block of text at the foot of the page (copyright info etc). It is then locked there: i.e. hitting Page Up or Home will only jump the cursor to the start of this block of text, not to the head of the page. Hitting End from there will jump the cursor to the end of the current line.

I think that this issue is related to the appearance of this cursor (blinking pipe symbol) in areas of a webpage that are not text entry controls. For example, if I got to click the (mouse) cursor on a textbox/textarea but miss slightly, the text-edit cursor appears half in and half out of the box, but it doesn't allow text entry in that position. Randomly clicking the mouse on any web page will cause this pipe-style cursor to appear next to the nearest block of text, or half-in and half-out of the nearest textbox, etc.

Not a fatal flaw, I know, but it is pretty frustrating when trying to navigate long webpages/forums and the like.

Thanks, Si

So I downloaded the newest version of FF on my current XP computer (which btw, I hate XP, I miss 7). The browser looked about the same as it did before the update (still not as nice looking as the FF on my Vista computer).

But, the "orange Firfox button" showed up (image) , but it looks to be formatted wrong.

Now it is gone (image) when I open FF again and it looks about the same as before the update. I am wondering if this is how FF should look on XP or if there is some kind of error. I really wish it could look like how it's supposed to look on Vista, but I am not sure if XP allows it.

Please let me know.

Thanks

I DO NOT want 6.0-it sucks! My computer is not even a year old but Firefox 6.0 caused many issues. Plug ins-all updated/current, but 6.0 would not allow some of my programs run properly. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled 3.6. This version seems to be the only one that does not cause problems! If you need any further information, please eel free to contact me @: removed

How does Firefox store cookies? In other words I understand they are stored in a file in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\d3z0e911.default. In a file or files called Cookies.sqlite. I have PC Tools Performance Toolkit and I have it delete Cache History, Cookies and Address Bar. Problem is when it deletes this I lose my profile and must move everything back around. It appears there is no way to individually delete or save cookies in PC Tools PT. Is there a way to prevent Performance Toolkit for deleting my profiles? Which of the 3 items mentioned above will allow the profile to remain? My other option is to use Firefox to delete my cookies and history. In that case, if Firefox stores cookies in a single file, how large does Firefox allow this file to get? Does Firefox retain a certain size for these files containing cookies? The reason I ask is if I remove the cookies myself form Firefox I'm only able to "Remove Cookie" or "Remove All Cookies". I'm unable to select certain cookies to keep. All-in-All though I really like Firefox so far. Everything seem simple except for getting Themes. I can't seem to find a quick way of doing it but I'll get it.
