(note: I have hundreds of bookmarks) I search the word "idea" in the location bark (with prefs set as searching for Bookmarks) and only SOME of the bookmarks with "idea" in the name come up. I type "ideas" and they all disappear, even though there IS one with the word "ideas". This happens even in Safe Mode.

I was able to use firefox, but all my bookmarks and history disappeared. Also, the forward and back arrow and refresh buttons weren't working. I followed the directions for restoring firefox profiles, and that didn't work. I wasn't able to open firefox again, and I received the message: "a copy of firefox is already open. only one copy of firefox can be open at a time." I tried closing firefox, even uninstalling it and reinstalling another file, but I still get the same message over and over again.

I am an administrator for a small network (300 users) and am pushing out new images. Each user has their own log-in since I am using Active Directory. The problem is, I want to put Firefox on all of them and have AdBlock Plus & Adobe Flash to be added on when they log on with their profile for the first time and launch Firefox. Is there a way to have it set up through the default profile, so that it can be added each time a new profile is created on each individual machine instead of manually doing it?

I'm on Firefox 3.6.8. I know that they're not bookmarks. I've of course highlighted them, and deleted with the DEL key, but when I type them in they come back. I deleted places.sqlite, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. It was fine for a few minutes, but then the entire history came back. What can I do to get rid of it?

Oh, and switching it to only showing Bookmarks or Nothing doesn't seem to work

This has happened twice in the past week. When I create a new folder nested inside two other existing folders, another folder in another branch is renamed to the newly-created folder's name. The folder that is being renamed is inside the Links folder. (I am not expecting an answer. I cannot find another place where I can report an issue with the browser.)

Yesterday a security update for IE7 was automatically downloaded into my computer. Now the history feature of Firefox is working poorly. Often it doesn't save previous pages for the back button to access during an online session. The few times I've been able to navigate back to a Google search page, the search terms I've used previously are absent. However most often today, the browser doesn't even acknowledge that there were previous pages and the back button remains grayed out.

Years ago when Netscape was the browser of choice for those who didn't use Internet Explorer, the Netscape bookmarks had a search feature where it would tell you not only if you had saved a particular bookmark but also the folder where you filed it. IIRC, about six years ago Netscape stopped informing the user where the bookmark you were searching for was filed. It seemed odd to me that Netscape dropped this feature, and Firefox doesn;t have it either. The Firefox search feature only tells you if you have the bookmark. Right now I can't tell where I filed a bookmark and it is frustrating me trying to locate where I filed it.

My question: is there a Firefox add-on that will tell me where the bookmark has been filed?

Yesterday I lost all my bookmarks, unrelated to any update or computer activity. Attempts to restore them typically restore folder hierarchies only, not the bookmarks. Going back far enough restores some bookmarks, not all. Any, and all the restored bookmarks are also lost again upon restarting.
