    I'm having problems with Fx 1.07 on Tiger (10.4.2).

    Firstly, if I type something into the Search Engine bar and later
    delete the text I can accidently delete the icon for the search engine
    I'm using and am unable to bring that engine back or any other engine.
    Its just an empty space where the search engines should be. Even after
    an Fx restart. The only way I can get around this is downloading the
    .dmg and dragging the into Applications and overwrite the
    original .app. (This doesn't happen on Windows) Not a major issue and
    now that I'm aware of it I'm more careful when deleting text in the
    search bar.

    The second is more annoying. When I open Fx none of my Homepages open,
    they just timeout. I use Google, BBC News and my companys Citrix login
    site. After they've all timed out I then click on any link on my
    Bookmarks Toolbar Folder and they instantly open the webpage as you
    would expect. I think this started happening when I moved to Fx 1.07 a
    few weeks ago.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    nvm, it was just the Noia 2.0 eXtreme theme I was using. I've switched to iFox and all works well. Anyone else tried it?
