Going to a news or weather site and seeing the news or weather from 3 days ago is ridiculous. I erased all history, I set private browsing, told Firefox to not remember history, all in vain. It still displays the old content until I refresh.

I use a 2011 MacBook Pro w/ OS X Lion v. 10.7.3.

Every time I start Firefox, I first have to click "open" on a pop up warning box that says:

Firefox is an app you downloaded from the internet. Are you sure you want to open this app?

This is really annoying & there's no option to stop asking me this. Does anyone else get this obnoxious pop up & have you figured out a way to make it stop?

I need to enable some cookies, I know how to do this, but the first step is clicking on the tools menu which I cannot find.

It might be helpful to describe what my page looks like, so here it is. My Mozilla Firefox window has the bar at the top which says which page I am currently on, and has the options to minimize, close etc. The next line down has the back and forwards buttons, refresh, stop, home, the url bar and a search box. The next line down has 'most visited', 'getting started', 'latest headlines' and my bookmarked pages (which i bookmarked by simply dragging the web page on to the bar as I don't know where the menu involving that option is either). The next line down is a nectar tool bar.

Where have my menu's gone? How can I get them back?

I have just switched from Google Chrome to Firefox. No I want to export all the history, cookies, bookmarks and that kind of stuff from Chrome, into Firefox.

I have allready done this with the bookmarks but that aint sufficient for me. I want it all so I do not have to re-enter all my passwords and more like that.

Ok. So I have been reading and reading on here. There is a website that autocompeltes in my awesome bar. It will NOT GO AWAY no matter how many times I clear ALL history, delete ALL cookies, etc. There is no bookmark saved with said website. (www.axlscloset.com).

The moment I type the letter "a" in my awesome bat, FF suggests www.axlscloset.com. I have also tried the SHIFT + DELETE on my mac. It is absolutely driving me crazy. What can I do short of resetting FF?

To update, this is happening with all letters of the keyboard. For example, "w" yield www.whitehouse.gov even though I have not visited it in months. "C" yield cbsnews.com.

Again, please note no bookmarks or the like are saved. All history and cookies have been cleared.

Thanks in advance.

It appears I somehow got upgraded to the newest version of firefox. And everytime I try to clear the history it freezes. Then I get errors... Something about a script... or the program will just say "not responding"

Can this be fixed? If not can I download an older version which worked?
