  • I don't repro this on FF 10.0.0.411.  How old is the 3.6.26 version? Looks like there has been some substantial updates to firefox in the past two years. May be worth upgrading.

    Version 5.0

    Firefox 5 was released on June 21, 2011,<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-mozilla2_67-0" style="line-height:1em;">[68]</sup> only three months after the major release of Firefox 4. Firefox 5 is the first release as part of Mozilla's new rapid release plan, matching Google Chrome's rapid release schedule and rapid version number increments.<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-68" style="line-height:1em;">[69]</sup>

    [edit]Version 6.0

    Mozilla released its Mozilla Firefox 6.0 on August 16, 2011. The update brought: permissions manager, new address bar highlighting (the domain name is black while the rest of the URL is gray<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-Add-ons_69-0" style="line-height:1em;">[70]</sup>), streamlining the look of the site identity block, quicker startup time and many other new features.

    [edit]Version 7.0

    Firefox 7, released September 27, 2011, uses as much as 50% less memory than Firefox 4 as a result of the MemShrink project to reduce Firefox memory usage.<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-70" style="line-height:1em;">[71]</sup><sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-71" style="line-height:1em;">[72]</sup><sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-72" style="line-height:1em;">[73]</sup> Mozilla Firefox 7.0.1 was released a few days later, fixing a rare but serious issue with add-ons not being detected by the browser.<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-73" style="line-height:1em;">[74]</sup> The "http://" does not appear in the URL.<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-Add-ons_69-1" style="line-height:1em;">[70]</sup>

    [edit]Version 8.0

    Firefox 8 was released on November 8, 2011. Firefox 8 verified that users really wanted any previously installed add-ons. Upon installation, a dialog box prompted users to enable or disable the add-ons. Add-ons installed by third-party programs were disabled by default, but user-installed add-ons were enabled by default. Mozilla judged that third-party-installed add-ons were problematic, taking away user control, lagging behind on compatibility and security updates, slowing down Firefox start-up and page loading time, and cluttering the interface with unused toolbars.<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-74" style="line-height:1em;">[75]</sup>

    [edit]Version 9.0

    Firefox 9 was released on December 20, 2011; version 9.0.1 was released a day later. Firefox 9 includes various new features such as Type Inference, which boosts JavaScript performance by up to 30%, improved theme integration for Mac OS X Lion, added two finger swipe navigation for Mac OS X Lion, added support for querying Do Not Track status via JavaScript, added support for font-stretch, improved support for text-overflow, improved standards support for HTML5, MathML, and CSS, and finally fixed several security issues. It also features a large list of bug fixes. <sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-75" style="line-height:1em;">[76]</sup>

    [edit]Version 10.0

    Firefox 10 was released on January 31, 2012. Major updates include a full-screen API for HTML5 videos and largely improved developer tools.
