You suggested that I update the toolbar (or something) and I inadvertently deleted Norton Secure and Symantec something. How do I get them back?

I have tried so many sites, that I really don't remember what you had me do. But it had to do with deleting add-ons (I think) that I don't use. So I clicked on one that had something to do with shopping at home, and maybe two more. Then I said okay. However, you had automatically shown to delete Norton Secure log in and another that had to do with Symantec -- I think it said IPS? Well now the secure log in is gone, and so are my passwords! I want it back, but I don't know how to get it. Help!!

I chose the apps/add-ons I wanted to keep, clicked next, and when I found out Norton security wouldn't work, I clicked the X (close button), thinking the update would NOT finish. But now I've lost my centurylink add-on, and I suspect my norton security. How do I get the pre-update version back?

Even though I have the box "Open new windows in a new tab instead" checked, when I click on one of the links in my Bookmarks Toolbar, it doesn't open in a new tab window. I clicked several bookmarks from the toolbar and it happens on all of them.

Also, when I click on different links from different AppleMails, it DOES open a new tab/window.

How can I get the links in my toolbar to recognize the preference chosen to make a new tab/window?

When I attempt to start FireFox (even in safe mode) I always get the Mozilla Crash Reporter. I have rebooted my laptop several times and re-installed FireFox.

I have been using this for over 6 months without problems. This is a corporate build pc and I am unaware if there have been any updates this week. I assume my helpdesk will not be able to assist (as I installed FireFox myself) hence I am contacting you for assistance.

I find that I exit a website that I am on and and want to get to the Google home page, I have to search for the hone key. It take a couple of extra steps just to exit from a web site.

The new version causes more key strokes to get to what I want.
