Re: mozilla 1.6 backport issues

I run Woody and just upgraded my mozilla from Adrian Bunk's 1.2.1 to the 1.6 from backports.org. Sadly, it seems to have made things worse. Does anybody know how to fix any of the following:

Let me add two more issues I've discovered in the past five minutes:

composer crashes mozilla
From the web browser, I clicked on File / Edit Page and Mozilla promptly crashed! Completely repeatable.

home page
It has reset my home page to the default localstart page !
Not a real problem, this, since it's easy enough to change back.

font sizes
I've always had problems with fonts in Mozilla but had something that was just about OK. But now the menus, toolbars, status line, mail listing (but not mail contents) have all become much smaller. I've tried playing with all the font settings in preferences and I tried adding font.uifont.pointheight 20 to prefs.js based on a bug report I found but nothing has made any difference.

window sizes
Previously Mozilla remembered separate window sizes for the web browser, the mail browser and individual mail message windows. Now they all seem to open to whatever was the last size set for any of them.

Mozilla's never ben the fastest app but now the mail browser is really slow on startup, shutdown, switching mail folders etc

Any pointers to how to solve any of these issues would be great.

Oh, full version: Mozilla 1.6 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040530 Debian/1.6-6.backports.org.1

Thanks, Dave
