The Mozilla help refers to the tool bars to reset the tool bars. I dont see anything and cannot find anything by right clicking anywhere on the page.

I recently updated Firefox. The Bookmarks menu shows a new menu item called "All Bookmarks". It appears to be a copy of the bookmarks. When I try to add a new bookmark, the All Bookmarks folder is the only one shown in the dialog. I tried deleting the All Bookmarks folder, but then nothing is shown in the dialog when I try to add a new bookmark.

If I do add a new bookmark, it is put under the All Bookmarks folder and does not show up under the top-level item I want it under. Any ideas about what I can do to fix this.

The update went normally without my intervention.

Thanks

Some bookmarks did not show up so I asked to restore (from the bookmark menu) - now all have disappeared. What files are the bookmarks stored in (in the system) So I can use the time machine to restore them from a previous date?

I do a lot of work on the web and I have a ton of bookmarks that I use to maintain various sites. I have lost them all!

I have tried to install a clean copy of the programme and restore the Mozilla file from the User Library (in time machine) but all I have is a white space where the bookmark toolbar was! I also have a problem in trying to enter all the bookmarks manually again. I can open the bookmark drop down but I cannot save any bookmarks. Firefox will not let me bookmark any new pages. I still have all the passwords in the preferences so I do not want to install a completely new copy of the programme and loose these.

Are there any other system files that Firefox uses that I can restore from the backup to solve the problem? I have a Mac Pro and I am running OSX 10.6.4 I have used Firefox for many years and never had a problem before. Can anybody help - please?

When it has disappeared I can open Firefox again using the menu or the opening icon on the toolbar, but then it only shows up blank, so without the tabs that were opened before. Closing down all other icons on the toolbar is the only way to make the Firefox icon reappear and for me to open Firefox again with all my tabs. Please excuse my English, the jargon is difficult.

I cannot change my cookie settings because the Tools dropdown only contains a few of its normal options. And when I try to copy selected text, the right click menu pops up blank or else goes blank when I scroll over it to try and copy or paste. The other menus appear to be normal. I have been mysterily loosing some of the cookies I need for logins, etc. but I can't get to the advance options to modify my cookies.

I have done complete scans with both Norton and Microsoft Security Essentials and found no malware.

I was forced to upgrade to the new 3.6.12 version. In the older version I had, if the program crashed or if I deliberately stopped Firefox by stopping it in Processes with End Task, when I restarted Firefox a box would come up asking me if I want to start a new session or go back to the old session. Well the default now seems to be with the new version it will take you back to where you were when it crashed or was stopped via processes and doesn't give you a choice. I have searched Tools multiple times and cannot find anything that will give me the option described above.

The thing is, I will stop Firefox by using End Task in processes when I come across a page/site that pops up a box asking me if i really want to navigate away from the page, rather than clicking on the pop up box or a site that starts popping up windows all over the place.

Can someone direct me to where I can tell my browser to ask me if I want to start a new session when this happens? And please tell me why .. any time a software is upgraded or new and improved, it always ends up taking away choices?
