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