Mac users: Can somebody please tell me how to set up a keyboard shortcut or script that allows me to toggle between U.S. keyboard and International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) keyboard layouts? I switch these on and off a LOT when I'm using my iMac and Macbook, but am tired of constantly going up to the little flag dropdown menu in the Finder (which I have to do repeatedly as I switch from program to program, since the drop-down window change doesn't seem to apply globally, but rather only within the current program you have up top). I know there's an easier way, I just haven't gotten around to figuring it out or setting it up. Thanks! [more inside]

I'm running Firefox 3.6 on my Mac (OS X.6.2). Yet when I try to load extensions that work on versions 3.5 & higher, they say I need to upgrade my browser. One extension had the following error message: "______" could not be installed because it is not compatible with your Firefox build type (Darwin_x86-gcc3)." Also, youtube is claiming that I'm running a version of Firefox that will soon be incompatible with their website. What gives? Why does everyone think I'm running an older version of Firefox, and how do I fix this?

I have a LOT of bookmarks for craft tutorials, supply places, etc. Often I can remember what the page of a tutorial looked like but can't remember what it was called, or even sometimes what it was about. ("There was this project that I remember thinking was really cool at the time... the site was really purple...") Is there a Firefox plug-in, Mac application, AIR application, or online service that lets you bookmark sites with corresponding screenshots? Thanks!

The latest versions of Firefox and Safari that can run on my Mac Intel G4 tower (OS X 10.4.11) keep crashing when I open more than one video in separate tabs or windows on YouTube or Hulu.

I work remotely, have a company-owned laptop issued to me and I use VPN and IE to access through to our company's intranet. For years, I've also used Firefox to browse the internet regardless of whether I was VPN'd in or not. No problem until a couple of weeks ago. Now Firefox will not work unless I am connected to my company through VPN. Why? [more inside]

At my gmail sign-on using Firefox, I could type the first initial in my email name and it would drop down where I could click on my email name and automatically insert it (then password). It stopped doing that and I have been messing with Firefox autofill and that seems mainly for filling out forms. Yes, I am sure this is an easy thing for someone (me) to fix but for some reason it is stumping me. My wife and I liked the utter simplicity on our home computer of this function. Can you help?
