I’ve never understood how they number them, running “Mozilla Firefox 3 Beta 5” now.

As a long time Firefox user I lament I cannot use Firefox 3 on my system as it causes blue screen of death type fatal errors. Even a total wipe of the hard drive and a fresh reinstall of Windows XP failed to fix the problem. I’m currently using Safari... nice but not Firefox.

I find the way the new Firefox 3 behaves to be quite aggravating. My problem is w/ its drop-down list on the address bar.

I use the drop-down list as a source of all of my favorite websites that I visit on a regular basis (about 30 or so). If I need to search the web I will use the Google search bar on the upper right of the browser--but my drop-down list has only "x"-number of websites, which I have chosen & can add to when or if I find another favorite to visit regularly.

Firefox 2 (TWO) has it exactly like I want it, but for some reason, I noticed that Firefox 3 has all sorts of websites in the drop-down list that I have visited (up to 14 I believe & no more) & several of them aren't even my favorites! They just happen to be sites that I may have either StumbleUpon'd or visited & I have no idea how they got there...& worse yet, I am unable to clear them out of the drop-down list, even when I go into Tools ---> Options ---> Privacy ---> Always Clear My Private Data !

I don't want my drop-down list to show the 1st 14 sites that I have visited. I want to use it ONLY as a list that I make up myself so I can get to my favorites quickly, & nothing more. That's why I went back to Firefox 2 & am hesitant to re-download Firefox 3 until it lets me do what I want it to do.

If anyone on this thread could tell me where I'm going wrong, I would sincerely appreciate it if you could help me. Thanx in advance!

Did they fix the crashing issue in Vista? I had to roll back to 3.0 since the most recent version would continually crash in vista.

Lately viewing yahoo/news videos using Firefox(3.07) has been hit and miss at best.

I’m using Firefox to view Free Republic, and at the very top of the page, to the right of the Firefox logo, I see a string a chinese characters. Does anyone else’s Firefox browser show this?
