On my Mac, I use Firefox as my main Internet browser. When I open Firefox and type in certain keywords in the browser bar, they used to take me directly to the website. For example if I just typed in "apples wiki" it would take me right to the Apples Wikipedia page. Or if I typed in the words "best buy" it would take me right to Best Buy's main website instead of having to type out the entire URL. Now when I do that, it just takes me right to Google's homepage.

I'm only now learning to appreciate smart bookmark folders, but I'd like to be able to create more specific searches with them. Specifically, I'd like to be able to limit my searches to the tag field. I have a "recipe" smart bookmark that works nicely, except for the "Recipes for financial success" article that it also pulls in.

EVERY time I use firefox, it has a new update available. Can I please tell you how goddamned annoying this is? I think it's on version 3.5.13 right now. DID YOU REALLY NEED TO RELEASE THIRTEEN FREAKING VERSIONS OF VERSION 3.5?!?! Give me a break.

Would you mind PLEASE saving your updates until it's at least major enough to warrant a tenth-of-a-version-number, as in, from 3.5 to 3.6, etc? Is that really too much to freakin ask?

I am running firefox version 3.5.9 in Kubuntu9.10. I know that version 3.6.6 of firefox is available. I checked automatic update status with the step-by-step guide in your site. When I click on "Help" in firefox, I am getting a total of 7 choices as against the 9 choices shown at your site. The first two and the last three as shown in your site are there. The third choice in my window is "Report Web Forgery" and the fourth one is "Report a Problem". So, how will I update the 3.5.9 version to 3.6.6 version? Although I can download the 9.8MB file at your site, I do not know how to "RUN" it on Linux. Please help.

Not sure how often

So some virus-infected "article" comes up and, stupidly, I open it. O.K., whatever. My SpyBot thing has kicked-in and now most of the crashing has stopped. BUT, I still get annoying pop-ups and my Homepage keeps getting changed to "Startup" and I have to constantly change it back (to Yahoo). It *seems* that a simple, very very simple, "site block" -- tailored to keep this or that annoying, spammish site -- tool could/should be available. But either it's not, or the application/tool is buried so deep in all the other bells and whistles of All Things Firefox, that this simple and obvious tool can't be found.

What's with this???
