i just bought a new computer, downloaded the latest firefox (did not import any info from my old computer's firefox yet), and though i saw the expected prompt to save a password when entering one on a site once (i did not save it at the time), the prompt no longer appears. the same thing occurs for any site, it never asks me if i want to save a password. i've rechecked my settings, and i have it set correctly to ask for it (the box IS clicked to 'remember passwords for sites', don't have it in 'private browsing' mode either (the option is grayed oust), have disabled any add-ons that i had (i only have AdBlock and McAfee as add-ons), have restarted Firefox multiple times, and still no luck, it never asks me if i want to save a password for any logons on any sites. i'm running Windows 7, and using Firefox 3.6.11. HELP! thanks.

Firefox "knows" about a number of plugins. By what means can a plugin become known to Firefox and have automated updating?

I could understand (not like) the fact that Microsoft might not be eager to make their products any easier to use with Firefox. But, I would think that Google and Real Networks would.

This happens only when I use a shortcut to invoke Firefox. I am running Windows 7 professional. The Firefox window opens after the error message occurs, so I would classify this as an annoyance. Several help postings mention removing "ddeexec" from Firefox registry entries. This worked for a while (it seems to be related to Firefox updates) but now no longer works: ddeexec is removed but the error message still occurs.

How do I change the background color (in the userchrome) of the bookmark folder menus? I'm not talking about the bookmark sidebar background color, I'm talking about when you have a folder in your bookmark bar and click on it, the drop down background color.

I don't want to have to change themes, I know there is a way to "hack" or over ride the current color without having to change the theme. Also, changing my computer settings don't do crap, it has nothing to do with the colors of my browser.

Thanks for your help in advance.

After the update, when I start typing into the location bar, no prior urls pop up - I have to input all over again each time. This applies not only to locations from before the update, but to urls I have input since then - the location bar autocomplete doesn't seem to be functioning at all. If there's a simple way to turn it back on, I haven't found it. NOTE: Under the "Privacy" tab in Preferences, I have selected: "When using the location bar, suggest: History and Bookmarks."

I looked up the information regarding the password files for FireFox 3.6.x on the web... it is my understanding that everything is in the files signons3.txt and key3.db. However when I copied these files to a FireFox 3.6.x instance on a second PC and launched FireFox, the password list (under security) was empty. What other files or procedures are needed to export/import passwords from one PC to another? Also, it would be nice to have this feature added to the native FireFox user interface... I am not comfortable with using an add-in for this as you can never be sure that your passwords are not being compromised by the add-in program.
