I have been using the all-in-one sidebar extension, it worked until FF5.0. But after updating to 6.0 today, I don't even see the option of turning on a sidebar, be it all-in-one or just the out of the box unextended one. What has happened?

I will never understand how this machine behaves and why the matters addressed always requires some kind of technical approach that always misses the very matter at hand.

This time an obviously necessary function disappeared. The "back"- function has to be presented as it was, since the pages visited does not always allow backing. When giving feedback, the "submit"- button did not work.

I am exposed to large amounts of text that makes no real sense, as if the internet preceeded the playing of a real musical instrument, or as if the standards for typewriters suddenly had become obsolete.

The information given is either requiring the understanding of principles never really mentioned, or "user friendly" in a manner that suposes that I have no idea on how a "power on- off"- button works and the like.

Never heard of a "technical retard"? That's me, and you!

I installed Lion 10.7 and manually installed Java now the plug-ins checker says I am not up to date. Does Firefox 8 not need this app? I posted this when Lion was released, now I have gone from Firefox 6 through 8 and still no Java 14.0.3 update. Does anyone know how to fix this or is this just an issue because Mac does it's own Java? I have got the latest Apple 1.6.0_29 Java release.

in previous versions of firefox (I'm currently on beta 6.0) you could search for add-on updates... this seems to be no longer possible. Where can I look for the newest updates to my add-ons?

I saw that you can right-click on each add-on in the add-on manager to search for an update on that specific item, but not search for updates on all as pre- 4? (at least … (read more)

I have always loved Firefox. As a web designer and developer, FF has proven to be my favorite browser time and time again; however, ever since I upgraded to the newest version of FF 6.0-beta, all background images on my html files saved on my PC display much, much, much darker than they really are. IE displays them normal and this is the first time I have ever had trouble with FF and not IE. Please address. Also, FF has also been adding in random borders around anchors when I hover over them.

Search engine keeps changing to firefox logo with "Search The Web", and takes me to different search engines, either Bing or Google so far. I don't want this. It used to be always set to Google, and I want it back permanently on Google. Help?

Just as the above states. This is referring to the search bar on the right. I do not want to remove it, I like using it. I want it back permanently set to Google. Even if I switch it to Google in the drop-down menu, when I restart Firefox, it changes it back. Again, instead of any other search engine logo, it has a little Firefox logo, saying "Search the web" next to it in gray when no text is entered. It often gives search results with Bing, even though I've removed Bing from the installed search engines.

I've also checked the default search engine in about:config, and despite what I describe above, the default is still set to Google.

Why is this happening, and how do I fix it???? It didn't happen until the other day here, so this would be after the Firefox 6 update.

Question How do I tell what version (update / release level) of version 6 has been applied to my system? I have applied several different release levels to version 6 of FF but all the about feature tells me is Version 6.0. no version! This seems to be a change in the way updates are handled. Is that a bending because of the speed of which you're pushing out updates and new releases? contact me if you need something more

It keeps showing up with the Firefox search engine. I have done the Manage Search engines and it refuses to stay the same. I don't want Firefox as my default search engine. I even remove the Firefox search engine and it comes right back when I restart.

I searched and tried several things including that config suggestion and nothing works.

To be clear this is the for the search engine in the search bar NOT homepage.
