Firefox questions

I've been using Firefox for the past month or so and although I love it, there are few things I wish it could do, and I was wondering if anyone knew how to do them. So here goes:

1) How do you get the Bookmark list to display the little icons next to each bookmark?

2) When you're filling out a form, is there any way to enable the browser to select a pull-down tab (I don't know if that's what they're officially called) using the tab key? The tab key cycles through all the fields but skips all the pull-down tabs, which can be a bit annoying.

3) For some reason, Firefox refuses to anti-alias any fonts smaller than size 11. Does anyone know how to enable that? Currently I just have 11 set as the minimum font size, but that messes up the formatting on some of the pages I visit.

I know I have more questions, I'll just edit this post as they come up. Thanks in advance to everyone!!

Yes, this can be fixed: http://forums.macrumors.com/archive/index.php/t-103542.html

(Oh, and they're called listboxes, usually, I think?)

Did you check the settings in System Preferences, Appearance Tab (the last option, for smallest font to anti-alias)?

I'm not sure about (1), but they are called "favicons," so that might help you google for the answer.

Usually if you go back to the bookmarked site using the bookmark it will refresh to show the icon, the favicon as it were. That works for me.
Is wowoah talking about the favicons in the Bookmarks bar, the sidebar, or the bookmarks menu? I don't think there *are* any favicons in the bookmarks menu, at least not by default. I access all of my bookmarks through the bar, though. And meh, I hate favicons anyway. ;)

I'm talking about the favicons (didn't even know they had a name!) in the Bookmarks menu, which is where I usually access them. The favicons help me pick out which bookmark I want really quickly, so I like 'em a lot :)

EDIT: Oh, and THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP SO FAR! :)
