Here is a picture of exactly what i'm talking about:

http://i37.tinypic.com/mtovar.jpg

It just started appearing a little while ago. My anti-virus software hasn't picked up anything unusual so I don't think it's spyware or anything like that. However I can't find a way to get rid of it. I've tried searching for help on Google itself (not using this toolbar), but no luck.

I use a master password in Firefox to protect my site passwords and it works well. However, it seems I am always needing to enter that master password, even during a session in which Firefox has been running continuously. When does Firefox ask for the master password, in addition to the time when it has just encountered the first occasion in a run in which needs to fill in a log in?

I've downloaded the new version of Firefox 3 times and I'm still seeing "warning" message directly under the Google search box on the Firefox start-up page that Firefox is no longer protected from on line attacks. Seems I should be protected after 3 downloads.

I changed a password that I had saved on Firefox, and deleted it hoping that I could save the new one; how can I do that if Firefox isn't prompting me to do so?

I recently was asked to change my password for my e-mail account. I had previously saved the password, but upon changing it, went to the tools tab, then to options, then to security, then to saved passwords and removed the saved password. Now, when I sign in with the new password, the website isn't asking me if I'd like the save my new password. Is there anyway I can have it saved again?

I am a web site designer. I have on my computer Linux's Krusader file manager, which allows me to copy files to my web host's server. Normally, when I do that and have renewed the page on Firefox, the page showing in Firefox accurately reflects the change that I have copied to my web host's server. Lately, regardless of clearing the cache, exiting Firefox and coming back in, the page showing on Firefox continues to be the old page without the change.

Why do my user accts keep swapping around?

I logged onto my acct on the computer and went to bookmarks. I was surprised to see none of my bookmarks. I thought I got on the wrong acct. So I logged out and back in. Somehow another user's bookmarks were all on my acct. I did a system restore and my acct went back to normal. But I decided to check that the other user's acct was ok. When I went on his acct there were all my bookmarks and search history! WTH? So I did a system restore again and his acct went back to normal. Well I went back to my acct and it's back to his bookmarks again! I'm so confused! Not only that but when I'm on my acct it goes into his email and anything I search shows up in the search history of his acct. How the hell did this happen and how can I get it back?

It seems like it must be something with the Firefox...my user acct pic is the same and my password is fine. My desktop icons and other things I saved onto my acct are all the same. The only thing that changes is after I open Firefox then I see that my bookmarks are gone and my search history is replaced with his search history, and when I go to certain websites I see the other user's name come up and I can log straight into his email w/o knowing the pw.

If Firefox is running in any acct then it won't run on any other acct. The only way to open Firefox in one acct is to go on the other acct where it was running first then close it. I was in a guest acct using the internet. I decided to check on the other user's acct. After I logged in I realized the other user's acct became the guest acct! Seriously, WTH is going on?
