Summary: firefox AND thunderbird improvements

I have always liked and relied on Firefox and Thunderbird until now. I 
was running FreeBSD 7.something and ran portupgrade -a. This trashed my 
gnome desktop and made the computer unusable so I reinstalled. I put in 
FreeBSD 8.something, ran cvsup and portsnap then installed those ports 
I wanted. The first two were Firefox3 and Thunderbird. Firefox went in 
easily and seemed to work until I tried filling out web forms. As soon 
as I hit the submit button the program crashes though a restart 
restores the page with the data in it so I can hit submit until it does 
so without crashing.

Thunderbird was improved so much that it never worked. It is possible, 
I suppose, that the new features are so brilliant that users will 
demand that their isps register with Mozilla, rather than simply being 
a symptom of arrogance, I will never know. Any attempt to edit or 
delete the imap server it installed by default resulted in a crash 
requiring a restart, and, after much searching, interrupting the 
automatic configuration process and adding a pop server resulted in 
another automatic installation of the wrong smtp server. Trying to edit 
these settings resulted in more crashes and I lost patience. Opera and 
Evolution are fine.

Firefox or not Firefox
Name: M B Fletcher Email: mf38794atntlworlddotcom Product: Firefox Summary: Firefox or not Firefox Comments: You asked why I took it off but did not ask more than the basics. I put security but in fact I put on Fire fox today and found a GOOGLE front page for searching when I had nothing there before. I wondered if I had been hijacked or you had done a very stupid update. I still do not know for sure. I do not ever use Google that I know of. The biggest spy on computers in the world and you should know better. If I find it is correct on Firefox I will go back to IE.

How to Call Firefox from Thunderbird when Firefox is not Default Browser
I have Time Warner's Roadrunner. They provide free anti-virus, ad, firewall, etc programs that do not have Mozilla versions so I use Outlook and Internet Explorer as my default. There are a number of things I like to do using Firefox and Thunderbird - such as reading these newsgroups. I want Thunderbird to call up Firefox it I need a browser while using it. Does anyone know how to do this without changing system defaults? I have found that Explorer and Mozilla will get in competition with each other if I have both products running at the same time and can destroy ...

Firefox within Firefox
For a short time now (likely since upgrading to FF 1.5.02) I've noticed that when running a Firefox session, ZA will popup a notice that Firefox -- verified the same exe as the running one -- is "trying to access the internet." This is confusing because it's already accessing the internet, thanks much. However, the destination IP is always along the lines of, which translates to, part of my ISP. So I've been saying yes. But I'm wondering why of a sudden this access is taking place, or being questioned, or what...

My feedback on Firefox 2 latest stable and Firefox 3
Name: Francois Email: tattva81atyahoodotfr Product: Firefox Summary: My feedback on Firefox 2 latest stable and Firefox 3 Comments: Hi Mozilla people, I must say I'm a huge Firefox Fan starting 1.0 release and I have recommended many people around me to use Firefox during all these years, the product was great, light-weight, fast and extremely reliable. I happened to try Firefox 3 during 2 days but I couldn't bear using it any more : Why ? 1. Insane loading time at startup (easily 3 and a half full minutes to dare to start) 2. Add-ons that setup themselves wit...

As you may or may not know, "firefox" is the literal translation of the Chinese name for the Red Panda. Yes, the OTHER panda -- the cute, orange, raccoon-like one, not the big, black-and-white, bear-like one. Here is a link to an article at the National Wildlife Foundation [], "Fighting for the Fi...

Improving access to Firefox and Thunderbird.
Name: Roger Bowdler (New Zealand) Product: Firefox Summary: Improving access to Firefox and Thunderbird. Comments: On the main {top] tool bars of both Firefox AND Thunderbird would it be possible to have a button incorporated into the bars that would open the others home or start page. It would make for easier use. So, if in FF and want TB then click on TB button to immediately go there. And vice versa. Could also be a powerful way to promote the use of either FF or TB to users of either but not both. If someone was using FF but did not know of TB, then if they clicked on ...

Firefox 3.0.1 no improvement over Firefox 2
Name: Susan Email: susanodatwordwizarddotus Product: Firefox Summary: Firefox 3.0.1 no improvement over Firefox 2 Comments: I recently updated Firefox to 3.0.1, and far from being easier to use, it is quite annoying, unlike 2. I like to sort bookmarks by name, so I figured out how to do that. Now I discover that even though I have sorted each folder alphabetically, I have to resort every time I add a site to a folder. Why don't the new additions follow the preference I have indicated? If this isn't a bug, it is poor design. Browser Details: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; ...
