When I type FACEBOOK into my search window, a drop-down window pops up with almost 2 dozen options to select. How do I remove ALL of them from the drop-down window? When I click on my FAVORITES folder, FACEBOOK does not even appear, so I can't delete it.

When I open firefox, I get an error code saying something along the lines of: "C:/Documents and Settings/User/Application Data/mozilla/firefox/profiles/rg7q7llq.default/prefs.js is corrupt and cannot be accesed. Run Chkdsk to fix this."

Well, I've ran Chkdsk twice and it didn't work. Please help. Firefox keeps acting like it's my first time using it and won't install any themes I add.

This happened right after I did a virus scan with Kaspersky Internet Security

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?

Youtube videos won't load on sites other than youtube. Youtube is just fine, but videos from youtube don't even show up on other sites. Just a white space, which you can tell are supposed to be videos because if you right click you see Flash options. The videos all work just fine in IE....

I have checked with Comcast and all systems go.......FF is running really slow on transfering data. OR I get a bunch of WAITING for.......Videos are buffering forever and then when they go on, they constantly cut out, sometimes, they don't come back on at all. I wish I knew how to check what version of FF ( Newbie!)I am using but I only D/L it in the last few weeks....This problem has been much worse in the last few days.

Am working on some WordPress development projects, using FF with Firebug a lot, refreshing pages, deleting history, etc. I've noticed that after heavy use that way FF 3.3.> started crashing. Sometimes it also crashes after the computer has been idle for a while and I continue a session in the open browser.

I read about checking for crash signatures, but nothing has been recorded for August and that's when it happened more frequently. Have updated to 3.5.11. No joy. I need to be able to use Firebug, so don't want to update and render the Firebug version incompatible.

I am using BitDefender daily. Using Window 7 Pro 64-bit on a Intel, Core 2 Quad CPU. Any thoughts?

As mentioned in my question above, it happens usually during playing games. I wondered if there were someway to clean out the virtual memory, as opposed to it "increasing" continually and overloading my memory in general. You are speaking with a computer novice for the most part, so I am unfamiliar with a lot. I do do updates and general maintenance on the computer, but is that enough for this issue?

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?
