I am about to be involved in voluntary work in South Africa, at a location with very slow internet connection. As I will be there for some months, possibly years, I am wanting to be prepared for restoring laptop items in case of crash (or buying a newer laptop). I have already downloaded the Firefox browser and saved it as an .exe on an external drive. I would like to do the same for my add-ons as I use them a lot (things like iMacros, readitlater, ietab, linky). Is it possible to save these as files that can be stored on an external drive - rather than automatically installing them into my Firefox system?

Thanks so much!

address complete problem

I don't know if I'm looking in the right place but maybe someone can assist with some information.

Previous Verizon DSL, now Frontier DSL for about 2 months (they bought Verizon).

Until this am, when entering the url all that was required was enough information (ie: "amazon" for amazon.com. "drudge" for drudgereport.com, etc) then FF would complete the address and ".com", ".net", etc, then I'd get to the desired site.

However,this am when doing the usual, instead of completing the address and getting to my destination I would get redirected to a "Frontier Yahoo search assist" page where I could then click on the result and get to the site I desired. Only by typing in the entire web address could I bypass the redirect.

I checked to see if my "true/false" for FF were in the required operation and they were. Ran virus scan and came up clean so contacted online tech support at Frontier, since Yahoo is their search partner and I kept ending up at the Frontier home page.

After pulling up my account, the online rep (they only have one person, ONE, for the entire online tech support staff) told me he never heard of just typing in keywords for addresses and that he ALWAYS had to enter the entire thing.

O.o

Then he suggested that I do a Google search for my problem.

o.O

Getting nowhere I canceled the online session and called the 24/7 phone support. By the time my account information was pulled up with the phone rep the problem magically disappeared.

O.O

So my questions. Was this a coincidental temporary glitch with FF (I'm a beta-tester crash test dummy), a bug not caught with my virus/malware scams or ... Frontier's way of hijacking me to Yahoo to generate ad revenue.

The timing suggests the third option, this is the first and only time this has occurred since going online in 2003, but before I get PO'd with Frontier I figure I needed more information.

Thanks in advance!

What Firefox version choices do I have for using Firefox on new laptop running Win 7 64-bit, and how do I move bookmarks from current laptop running Firefox 3.5.13 to new laptop?

Currently running Firefox 3.5.13 on laptop using Windows XP pro sp3 and will want to move my bookmarks to a new laptop. New laptop uses Win 7 pro 64-bit OS. I have read too many conflicting reports about Firefox and Win 7 and understand that Firefox is working on a true 64-bit version. What are my choices for a stable web browser for new laptop and which particular version of Firefox is recommended and the pros and cons of that suggestion? (I believe one can run Firefox 32 bit version in the 64 bit environment, but is that the best choice?) I have not installed Firefox on new laptop yet and am eager to dump IE. This is being posted from my old laptop. Thanks ...

I am using OS X version 10.9.2 on my Mac. I have Firefox 29.0.1 installed. When I click about it says its up to date. However many websites say my browser is not up to date and so I cant use that site on Firefox. Hotmail for example. However when I go to Firefox to up date it says I do not meet requirements. Not sure what to do??
