Hello! I was in the builder.addons.mozilla.org and I was building my add-on. I viewed the documentation and I opened the "windows" docs. Then I saw a code that closes the window and I wanted to try it. Then... it closed the window and I can't start mozilla. What should I do?

Why do the toolbars not match my customization when I click "Done" customizing?

I right click on the toolbars and get "Customize" which pops-up the standard customize window where I drag and drop to the actual toolbar. Despite arranging the items in a manner I want to view them and click "Done" SOME of the items disappear or get "magically" merged with other items. In example: the reload button when placed immediately to the right of the location bar gets "merged" into the location bar where it becomes too close to other UI elements and I click the wrong item.

Now for the reload button I can add in the vertical spacer so that it doesn't get merged, but the stop button ALWAYS disappears when placed next to the reload button on the right side of the location bar. When I move it next to the HOME, BACK, and Next buttons on the left of the location bar it does not get merged.

If this is the intent it would sure be better in my mind to give me a "lock" layout checkbox so that the buttons stay fixed in my layout instead of what some UI designer thinks is better for me...

For the last three hours, Twitter hasn't updated and whenever I refresh it just hangs and does nothing. I logged out and logged in and get nothing. I have also cleared/cleaned everything out of the history/cache and still no joys. If I start a new tab and enter the address it just sits there saying 'Connecting..."

I have managed to get it to load fine in Google Chrome and via the official Twitter app for Android.

After an automatic Firefox update, my gmails started to open up in separate instances of minimized Firefox windows. The former way was that any email I clicked on would open full screen in the same instance of Firefox and in the same maximized window. Any suggestions on how to get back to the former way?

I do not use plugins to play my video files. Instead, I rely on the media player itself. Currently there are many files that open in either VLC or Windows Media Player when I click on their link in Firefox. Some other file types do not open immediately and I am prompted with a box asking me to choose a program to run the file. I click on "Do this from now on" or whatever it says, hoping that when I open a similar file type, I would not be prompted with this message again. Unfortunately this is not the case. While many files open my media players directly, there are many that still ask me what program to use..even though it is checked to use a specific program.

If I open Bookmarks and select a folder that is longer than the Firefox window is high, the part of the bookmarks list that falls outside the window remains on the desktop when I leave bookmarks or close the window. I must then do a refresh of the desktop to get rid of the junk. Does not happen with MS IE9. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium on a SONY VAIO laptop. It started when I went to the VAIO last November. A "Show Desktop" or a refresh of the desktop cleans it up.

In an old question I asked about adding a second "home" icon that I could place randomly on the toolbar since the old old thubber no longer does that.

At some point after that forum question - which was not answered - someone provided me an add-on that would provide the 2nd House type icon, but in B&W. Does anyone know about that? I can no longer find it. Thanks to all.
