I have set firefox to clear all cookies when firefox is closed, and that's the way I want to keep it. However, there are a handful of sites where I don't want the cookie to be deleted. I also want the cookies for these sites to be updated when I visit the sites, so I can't simply copy them to another folder. Is there a way for me to set up an exception list to the 'clear all cookies on closing' rule? Thanks Chris

A bookmarks toolbar column has appeared on the left side of my front page for some unknown reason. I want to eliminate it because it shortens the width of my front page and I have no use for it. I have the bookmarks located in the menu toolbar on the top of the page. I don't need this stupid toolbar on my front page.

One of my desktop folders contains three different Firefox Setup files created to upgrade to newer versions. Can these previous 'Setup" files be deleted without affecting the most recent version that I'm running?

And the follow-up question: immediately after installing a new version, can that "Setup" file be deleted?

When I receive an attached document (Word or OpenOffice), I click on it. I get a Norton Antivirus window that says it's clear and I click on the yellow Download button. Then nothing happens. 1. I don't get the windows that asked Open? or Save?. 2. The documents are not in the Download folder. 3. I reset the downloads to my Documents folder - nothing appears there either. 4. I search my iMac with the file names, and no results show up.

On several sites I have been alerted that I need to install the Adobe Flash Player plugin 10.3.183.7 in order to seeing everything correctly. When I select the install button, I get the message that it could not be installed and that I had to install it manually. Selecting any choices within the dropdown gets no response. And, interestingly, I already have Adobe Flash Player 11.0.1.152 (the latest one) installed on my computer. How do I install this plug in?

UPDATE: Problem Solved. For some reason cookies from nytimes.com were marked "block" in the Preferences>Privacy list. I'm not sure how this happened, since it was not a site I would have blocked.

In Firefox 7.0.1 running on Mac 10.6.8 I get stuck in loops at the New York Times nytimes.com log in. This is not a problem in Safari, but Firefox has Zotero. I have cleared cookies, cleared the cache, and re-started in safe-mode (add-ons disabled), and I still have the problem.
