This sometimes happens for example while filling in a form on a web page. I intend to copy/paste text into an input box of the form but I accidentally paste it outside of the box. This causes Firefox to perform an undesired search based on my text.

Can this be turned off?

I have Firebug 1.10.6 installed on top of Firefox 16.0.2. After installation of Firebug I see the bug icon in the upper right corner of my window, next to the home icon. After restarting Firefox, the icon is gone. I don't know how to start Firebug other than by clicking the icon. Please explain to me: how to get the Firebug icon after restarting Firefox, or, alternatively, how to start Firebug without icon.

I recently upgraded from 16.0.2 to 17.0. The fonts used by firefox in the toolbar and the names on the tabs have changed to a dirty, bold look. I do not like it. In 16.0.2 I am using the default theme. In 17.0 I am also using the default theme of 17.0. I am running Windows 7. Since my home and work machines have similar configurations, the work version (still 16.0.2) has the nicer looking fonts. If this antiquated system allowed one to attach screen shots, I could visually show the difference brought about by the upgrade to 17.0

How do I get back the application fonts that were used in 16.0.2?

When I go to the Java test page (http://java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp), it says the Plugin is disabled. The Manage Add-Ons page said it was Disabled after a reboot, but is enabled now. Chrome and IE both agree that I have Java 7 Update 9 installed, and the testjava page works just fine.

A couple of sites I use frequently have embedded Java apps, so I need to get this resolved.

In Firefox 17, none of the Personas I apply show any kind of image, whether header or footer. They still change the color of my tabs, and the text of the names of my tabs, so the personas are successfully being applied in some fashion. Searching for an answer was unclear. As per some suggestions, I re-enabled the Default theme, restarted Firefox, then changed Personas, yet the problem persisted.

Thank you for your time.
