Windows 7: Anyone else having these problems with Firefox 3.5.3?

Anyone else having these problems with Firefox 3.5.3?

Hey,

One of my Windows 7 systems has been having issues with Firefox 3.5.3. I'm going to assume that either the 3.5.4 or 3.6b1 release scheduled for next week will fix the problems, but I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced either of these specific issues on Windows 7:

  • Browser window gets "stuck" in the foreground. Windows stuck "behind" it won't come to the foreground unless I minimize Firefox completely.
  • Favorites from the sidebar always open in a new window.
These two problems normally occur during the same session of Firefox, e.g., if one is happening, the other is also happening at the same time. Anyone else having these problems?

- Phil

I havent seen any of these problems using firefox. But then again, i'm using Windows 7 32bit.

Maybe its a 64bit Issue?

Phil, you're showing --> OS Windows 7 Ultimate RTM 7232 (64-bit)
This is not the correct version of Win7 RTM.

Sorry! "Build 7232" is the correct part of the spec! Fixing that now...

Could be, but I am only seeing these problems on ONE of three computers I have running 7232 x64 and FF 3.5.3.

I'm having some problems with firefox 3.5.3 and windows 7 -64bit as well

firefox is not updating the page, or not going to the pages, when i click the links, it jittery, and kinda spastic. While it's not totally unusable, better yet still, unfortunately, using MS internet explorer for the time being.
