My kids were messing with my computer and must have pushed something and everything disappeared. I need to know how to put an address bar (back button, refresh, ect) back up into the top of my window. Part of the problem is that my computer screen is cracked and I can't see anything in my menu easily. A command that would restore the address bar would help. Thanks.

Firefox notifies me that I'm not running the latest version (I have 3.6.24 GTB7.1) and to download the version compatible with my older system (Mac Tiger 10.4.11). I click on that link and can find nothing that states what systems the version(s) there are compatible with. I have in the past downloaded and installed an incompatible version, a situation to avoid for obvious reasons.

I am running MAC 10.4.11 OSX therefore the system itself does not have the capabilities to upgrade to the new Firefox, and /or hotmail. Nothing comes out correctly and I am not that it can make my system unstable. What can I do to help fix this situation? Please do not tell me to buy a new system unless you are offering one. Thank you everyone, as I have tried everything I can think of and nothing works. Stay safe with "Sandy".

I have searched for all the relevant information (i.e. yahoo answers who were pretty useless) but I cannot remember how to make the site show the log in box. Possible problem with the script. There was a help page for this problem but it doesn't exist now. At the moment, www.aimsperform.co.uk just shows up a blank page. I have made it work before - cant remember how. Can't use IE as I am not using windows. Help!

Firefox automatically starts itself on start-up every time. I don't want it to. If I want it on, I'll click on it. I don't go on the internet every single time I start up my computer and don't like having to WAIT for it to start up so I can quit it. I don't know why it does this - never did before - and it is EXTREMELY annoying! HELP! I'm on a Macintosh operating with Tiger OS.

I've recently switched to Firefox from Safari and I love it. The one thing I miss about Safari is the autofill icon that you can click on and it will enter your name address, phone number, email address etc in the appropriate fields with just one click. How do I set this up in Firefox? I've looked through all the help categories and none of them seem to fit.

Several months ago for an unknown reason my right-click search changed from Bing to Google. How do I change it back? I'm on a Mac OS 10.4.11 and Firefox 3.6.25. I got a little over my head and tried two things, one from an article here which says -

Changing the Internet Keyword service

You can specify any valid URL to perform the Internet Keyword searches by modifying the keyword.URL preference in the about:config page:

   * To use the Browse by Name service from in earlier versions of Firefox, keyword.URL can be set to http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=. Google will forward you to the relevant site if it finds a clear match. Otherwise, the search results page will be displayed. 
   * To use Yahoo!, set keyword.URL to http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=, Bing, set it to http://www.bing.com/search?q= and so on.
   * To reset the Internet Keyword service to use a standard Google search Google's Browse by Name service, right-click hold down the Ctrl key while you click on keyword.URL and select Reset. 

and one from an outside article which said to go to about:config, find Bing and replace it with the URL http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=

Neither worked and it's probably I don't have a clue as to what I'm doing beyond following those instructions. I suspect it might be because those solutions were meant for a different version of Firefox. I got out of there because I didn't want to screw anything up.

Anything else I need to add?
