When using href="file://f://myfile.ext" it open fine within Firefox 3.6.8. However, I would like to NOT hard code the hard drive and use the same drive location as my html file that invokes this href link. I have tried to use href="file://///myfile.ext" and it does not work. I get an error message saying File Not Found. For ie browser I can just specify href="/myfile.ext" and it works fine. This is a simple html file that references severals local files and I have all of this material on a usb memory stick (ie my F drive). The memory stick will be sent to several folks and their usb drive may be some other letter.

I have stored over 120 bookmarks and deleted the names to save space on the quick bookmark bar. Consequently, since the bard got so full, if a bookmark or folder did have desciptive text next to it, the text would collapse so that just the icon shows. If I hover over the icon, the test reappears. These days, I've found it simpler to classify my bookmarks into folders, HOWEVER, I don't know which folder is which because the text next to the folder icons remain collapsed until I hover the mouse over them. I want to customize it so the text is frozen next to the icon or folder. How do I do this? Please help and fore thank you!

When I go to Help & Troubleshooting & click Open Containing Folder I get a Windows Explorer window that shows the file path including Used-Edward-AppData, etc. But when I click on the little triangle to the right of Edward the drop down menu does not include AppData and if I just go into Windows Explorer and Users-Edward, there is no AppData folder. So I cannot overwrite the profile file with the saved profile info from my earlier laptop. The folder symbol next to Edward has a lock on it but I don't know what that means or how to unlock it.

I went through the features and add-ons available with recent (approx. 1 month ago) UPDATE of Firefox. One thing I chose was a gimmick that adds color and graphics to (I believe) the SHELL of all pages. I don't really like it: find it too hard to read my tool bar and other info at top. I want to REMOVE THIS and have STANDARD SHELL. I can find NOTHING within my preferences that will lead me to the (NO idea what it is called) add-on involved. I want to know HOW TO FIND IT and HOW to REMOVE IT. Thanks!!

I just updated to Firefox 3.6.8

In 3.6.4, when I opened a new tab by clicking on a link, the tab would open to the far right of the tab bar. Now it opens a new tab directly to the tab I currently have open.

Is there an option where I can change this back to when it opened the new tab to the far right?
