I was going to hold off installing XP Service Pack 2 for a few months. Whilst I use Firefox rather than IE6, the jpeg vulnerability is listed as affecting XP itself. Do I really need to installing it as soon as possible? Is everyone else installing SP2 now?

Firefox problem... Firefox has suddenly stopped allowing SSL pages. I've went into Tools/options/ and checked use SSL 2.0 and 3.0, and tried using just 2.0, but some sites that have always worked in the past have stopped working. Firefox 1.0 on a computer running XP.

Going Insane: How do I turn off mouse gestures in Firefox for OS X? I've installed a couple of extensions which control gestures, but so far, nothing works. I hate gestures. The keyboard is faster.

Eudora + Firefox + XP: every time I launch a link from within an email, Firefox opens it twice in two identical windows, and I also get a blank IE window. Needless to say, I just want one version of the link. In Firefox.
Spybot, Adaware, Hijackthis and AVG show nothing untoward on my system. Anyone else get this?

I am an unapologetic Firefox fanboy. This is the only piece of software for which I have feelings bordering on love. Which is why it pains me to say that new pr
0.10 is annoying me. There are lots of sites that I have multiple logins for and I miss the ability to 1, be able to place the cursor in the login field, press the down arrow, and chose the login I want. And 2, be able to type the first few letters of the login and hit tab to auto complete the login and populate the password field. Anyone figure out how to get these features back?

Quickie Gecko-CSS question - not finding useful help on Google. How to align the text (value) of a form button?
This looks great in IE (aligned right), but always reverts to center in Moz/Firefox. Anyone find any clever workarounds (I really don't wanna resort to images) [more inside]

It's hardly the end of the world but the favicons in my bookmarks in Firefox keep disappearing. Is there an extension which will check them and keep them updated without me having to visit them?

I really love using Firefox instead of IE as my browser, but I'm having problems with Firefox at work. About half the time I try to use it at work, it won't load anything. It tells me that the page timed out. Whenever this happens, I have to browse with IE instead until Firefox starts working again, several minutes later. I have no problems with Firefox at home. I've heard this is a firewall-related issue, but I don't really understand. Is there a way to fix this?

I'm on a fresh install of Firefox 0.9.3 and I'm frequently getting a line of black diamonds with white question marks inside of them when I load a page. Sometimes it just flashes and goes away and the page loads; other times, the page isn't loading at all. I've checked my settings and Googled it but can't figure out what this is. Been using Firefox for some time now and never seen this prior to this install. Any ideas?

Big fan of Firefox & T-Bird here. However, I'm used to being able to send a page as an attachment, not just a link in an email. I'm sure I could do this in Mozilla - why'd they leave this very useful function out of this build? [Google
is not that helpful - any solutions?]

HTML editing: IE6 has been hijacked once too often so I've moved over to Firefox
. But it's just not the same. When building websites in IE6, it was the work of a moment to bring up the html source in notepad, save it and refresh the open window to check the changes. Firefox is having none of this. Any suggestions?

Mozilla? Firefox? Camino? I'm ready to try a new browser, but I'm confused by the differences between these three. Currently using Safari 1.2.2 on an iMac and an iBook, both with 10.3.4. I have a license for Opera, but it's simply more than I need. I don't need IRC and I don't need HTML (yet?). I would like for it to sync bookmarks between the 2 Macs (I have iSync and a .mac account) and to work reasonably well with AppleMail, Address Book, etc. What's the best choice for a non-geeky girl?

I love Firefox. But I've had a problem since firebird and it's still present in .9.1. I like the free Bitstream Vera font family when I'm on the laptop because the fonts smooth nicely. However, at some point they become aliased. Screen shots inside. How do I prevent this from happening? [more inside]

Why does Firefox insist on loading pages with Unicode character coding, when I prefer Western character coding? The former turns high-ASCII characters like § into question marks; the latter displays these normally. Does this happen to anyone else, and can I fix it?

I can't look at my own weblog. I'm using Mozilla, and I get a message that says:
The file / cannot be found. Please check the location and try again.
I've tried to access it through the very few people who've linked me, and I get the same message. I've tried typing in, and I get the same message. What's going on? [more inside]

Ok, I love Firefox. I have been using it since it came out. The question I have is that every now and then I will go to load a page and it says Cannot Resolve Host. Yet if I open it in IE it loads perfectly fine. Now this wouldn't be that big of a deal if it happened seldomly, however this happens after about 5 minutes of heavy website browsing. All of a sudden NO domain can be reached until I fire up IE first.
I do not have this problem with IE, nor do I get this problem on my mac with Safari or IE Mac. My question is, Did I screw up a setting somewhere in Firefox that it just hangs? Does anyone else suffer from this same problem? And is there a solution? [more inside]

I've been enjoying Firefox quite a bit, ut there's one thing I really miss from IE. I had the Google toolbar installed on IE and I frequently used the "highlight" button to make whatever term I entered show up in yellow inside the page. This is really useful when poring over Google results. Is there an extension I can use to do the same thing?

Is it possible to stop Mozilla/Firefox from truncating tooltips (or whatever the link title="popping stuff"
popup things are called)? I assume this is somehow a "feature," not a bug, but it really pisses me off.

fox question. I've been trying to find a browser I like, and after playing with Opera, Mozilla, and Firebird, I settled on firefox. Now I can't figure out how to make it feel familiar, the way IE does. For starters, I would really like my bookmarks to sort the same way, directories listed first a-->z, followed by links stored in the top level also sorted a-->z. It doesn't appear to care if an imported bookmark is a directory or an actual link, and it really annoys me. [more inside]
