Just below the URL location bar is a line of stuff I don't want. It contains Most Visited, Getting Started, Latest Headlines, Apple, .Mac, Yahoo!, News, Apple, Welcome to Firefox.

I want to reclaim this space and add it to the window, not keep a fat header up there.

I follow the procedures stated on the Firefox website. I cannot select a set of cookies to delete by selecting the first cookie in a set and then pressing shift-END. I assume END is just the last point in the list you want to select. This does not work (MacOS 10.5.8, Firefox 3.6.15). I can only delete 1 cookie at a time. Sometimes when I delete a cookie it just reappears. There are some cookies that I just cannot delete, even within the same session, even when not having another window open that might be on a different site from Firefox)

Also, I'm sure there must be a way to search in the forums, but I couldn't see how. If someone could answer this one, I might be able to help myself.

Thanks in advance. v3.6.15

When I click on the bookmarks dropdown (on the line with the file, edit, view stuff) there is a small arrow at the bottom and top to scroll through my huge list of bookmarks that I really should organize better! Is there a way to make this small sliver bigger/taller? It is just so hard to get the mouse on that small area, especially on my laptop pad. Thanks Carwarr

Firefox will not let me get on any websites (safe AND not safe), claiming that it "may pose a security threat to your system"; when I try to choose the "proceed unprotected" option, it won't let me.

My computer's anti-virus software recently expired. A few days later, I went to download a new anti-virus software . . . when I opened up Firefox, I received a warning that claimed Firefox was infected with "Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen", and gave me two options: "Activate XP Security 2011 (recommended)" (this was a $60 charge and required credit card info) or "Continue unprotected (Dangerous)"

Since I needed to install new anti-virus, I figured I would continue unprotected, download my new software quickly, and remove the virus. But when Firefox opened, it gave me a message saying: "Firefox alert. Visiting this site may pose a security threat to your system!". Gave me three options:

1. "Get a copy of 'XP Security 2011' to safeguard your PC while surfing the web (RECOMMENDED)"

2. "Run a spyware, virus and malware scan" (I already did this)

3. "Continue surfing without any security measures (DANGEROUS)"

I tried clicking on different links, but the same warning kept showing up, even on verified and safe sites. I tried to choose the third option so that I could download my anti-virus software quickly, but nothing happened when I clicked on it - the page reloads and the warning shows up again.

My computer is still without anti-virus software because Firefox will not let me surf the internet. Please help!
