When I go to History in the Tool Bar I can go to Show All History and delete what is there, but even after deleted, if I click on Recently Closed Tabs, some websites visited will still be there, and I don't necessarily what anyone else tha might be using my desktop or laptop to view them. It's a privacy issue, don't you know. I have tried for three days noe and haven't found a way to get rid of them even if I delete all cookies.

Recently I received a pop-up from "Firefox" telling me I urgently needed to update my browser. Even though I thought this was strange, I did it, and ever since I have been getting pop-ups when I start up my computer and randomly while browsing. This same message just popped up again from this address:

http://softocheck.org/update?get=bcbd82d0eeef5d229c2163d54195228d

Is there a way to fix this? I've tried going to my control panel and deleting unfamiliar programs. Twice I've had to delete something from an unknown source titles "dofus" (go figure..). At the very least I thought it should be brought to Mozilla's attention.

When looking at Amazon.com in firefox, there are no images for any of the products. I can Google search and see images. I can also open Internet Explorer and see images on Amazon. Since my job includes working with Amazon and the accounts of people, I would like to find out why this is happening. Any ideas? I have tried the usual as far as clearing cookies and caches also there are no popup blocks that show.

I am installing Firefox from the Fedora YUM repositories via Kickstart. After installation, the .mozilla directory and its subdirectories do not exist. Although I have the Firefox configuration files I want to install, I don't have a place to put them. And since Firefox seems to create a .mozilla/firefox/*default directory with a random name, I can't easily just create the directory and then insert my files. Is there a way to make this fully automatic?
