I'm a programmer, and I'm using regExp's to simplify my life in a chat thing. Basically, ":blue:" in a chat will essentially be replaced with "". because there can be all sorts of colors, I can't use replace. Instead, I used regExp.exec(string). However, there is a major bug where every other time, the regExp.exec returns null even if there IS a match. If the chat is ":blue:", the response will alternate as :blue:,null,:blue:,null,etc. If the chat is ":blue: :red:" (e.g. two color blocks) the response will go :blue:,null,null,:blue:,null,null and so on. Basically, if there are 'x' color blocks defined, the .exec will work every x+1 times, and the other times it will not find a match. this also happens with regExp.test. I have gone through my code hundreds of times, and finally, I decided to run it in Opera. It works PERFECTLY fine. even in IE, it works. So i had to assume it was some bug with Firefox.

I hope this question catches the attention of the MOZILLA DEVELOPERS, as this is huge.

I'm not sure if it's just me. However, I have uploaded an html file onto http://jsbattle.tablocks.com/Untitled-1.html (the subdomain had a different purpose, but i figured i would put it here), and it will alert :blue: and null (at least for me). You can view the source code. An important note is that this .exec and .test glitch only happens inside functions. for example, regExp.exec twice just in a script tag will run fine, but while in a function abc() {regExp.exec} and executing abc(); abc(); it'll glitch out. I have not run extensive tests to see when this glitch occurs, this is all I know. Please help, Mozilla Developers. And if anyone knows how to contact the Mozilla Developers, tell me, or address them of this issue.

It is a small but annoying problem. I, and sometimes friends, use my Gmail account to check their email. In the username window of Gmail, which I access with Firefox 3.6.9, a list of all past users shows up when I click in the window. I cleared Google cookies, and All history, but the list remains! I can hide the list, but not clear it, if I check 'Form and search history'. But the list is alive and well when I uncheck this option! Is there a way to get rid of the list?

I have use custom settings for history. I have checked accept cookies from sites and accept third party cookies. This problem keep recurring. Why? I check the Google search preferences I want and sometimes one of the preferences gets saved but not the number of results per page I prefer. Or, I get an error message that cookies are not enabled.

It is bad enough having to use Firefox NON-support to begin with. Then to find a fix and have the same problem recur over and over again is ludicrous.

You are seeing this page because you either do not have Adobe's Flash Player installed, or you have scripting turned on in your browser preferences.

I have the latest Java and Flash Players installed with Firefox 3.6.9. In Tools Options, Java script is enabled. What setting needs changing for these sites to recognize my browser?

I have installed FireFox 3.6.9 and after while JavaScript has started to malfunctioning, although I have the latest Java installed (Java 6 Update 21) and JavaScript turned on in my Options menu. I have tried already several times to reinstall Java and Firefox as well, but nothing helps, the Firefox browser still ignores the installed java. I am running Windows Vista. I have had once the same problem long time ago, but don't remember, how did I solve it. Otherwise, I have been really satisfied with Firefox and would like to keep using it, however, without Javascript running it is useless.

Running 3.6 on Windows 7. I have deleted all cookies, deleted preferences.js, and do not know what else to do. This has been the status for about a week now. The only thing I can think of that I have installed at around the same time is Microsoft Security Essentials, but disabling its real-time protection did not change the behavior. It may be a system issue, since I have the same problem with Chrome and IE 8! I use ZoneAlarm, Symantec Endpoint Protection 11, Spybot as well, but I'm not sure how those would affect this particular setting. Thanks in advance.

Before the latest update of my Mozilla Firefox, the Firefox Start page contained an internet address box near the top of the screen, where I could enter an internet address and hit go. It also showed the Google search box in the middle of the screen.

Now, after the Firefox update, the Start page only shows the Google search box. There is no internet address box nor an "awesome box," which according to my reading of the new features is supposed to have replaced the internet address box.
