The problem I am trying to fix is that I can't save any bookmarks. I uninstalled then installed again and still have this problem. There are no other problems but this one. I have tried disabling my extensions but that didn't work.

Coming to Firefox from Safari, I already find the bookmarking system less easy to comrehend on Firefox. Having entered my four most-used sites in the bookmark toolbar, I now want to change their order, but my changes never survive closing and reopening Firefox. I read the stuff in Help and followed the advice about the safe mode window but that didn't do the trick either. It's not a big deal but it would be handy to have my stuff where I want it. Thanks for your time.

Specifically im talking about the sites that get saved located on the drag down menu bar under history between the "show all history" and "recently closed tabs" it would be much appreciated if you could let me know how.

When using various versions of the more recent Firefox on a G4 Mac operating under system 10.4.11... In other Mac programs when clicking in the clear area below the scroll bar (on the right margin), the page should drop exactly and only one screen of information. In Firefox, the page generally drops to the end of the page skipping many screens of information.

We are seeing a script type font that is difficult to read when we go to web sites such as EBAY or Amazon and most other sites on the Firefox browser, but only in certain areas or sections of display pages. It is always present on the "web search" button on the Firefox home page. I have checked the Firefox preferences and it is optioned for Geneva 16 pt for the default font, but don't know where this irritating other font is coming from and don't know how to change or get rid of it.

I've already written about this once but then I had to verify my account so I think it was lost. If not- my apologies. Firefox kept hanging so I opened "Help" for options. Ultimately, I decided to to try clearing my "Restore Session" folders to see if this might resolve the issue. I followed the instructions, I thought, exactly. I found the folder where I was told I would, trashed it, and then closed Firefox. But when I attempted to re-open the application I was given an alert window titled "Close Firefox" that said: "A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time". Problem is, there is no other icon, window, etc to be found anywhere in my computer. And the icon on my dashboard reads as closed. The Firefox heading does come up with the alert window- though none of its subheadings do- but the only thing I am able to do is close the alert. I even tried deleting the application and downloading Firefox again. Same result. I hate to go back to Safari as it is very touchy with video and is the reason I got Firefox in the first place. Can you help?

Mac was functioning properly with the exception of this ODD INCIDENT that made it defunctioned. I'm certain there's a way to retrieve it by using certain keys on the keyboard BUT I'm not aware of this process.

What I'm having now, despite "switching on and off" drill, is just a black screen with the wordings "INPUT NOT SUPPORTED" on the monitor that remains constant each time I try.

I am unable to delete zombie bookmarks (no link) in Normal or Safe Mode Firefox 3.6.13 Mac 10.4.11, bookmarks disappear at random

Firefox 3.6.13 (Mac Mini, OS 10.4.11) has repeatedly been losing my bookmarks in random fashion. For example, all bookmarks in a single folder have disappeared. Randomly, my bookmarks toolbar is truncated to just 6 items, although all toolbar bookmarks remain visible in the Library. The Library will randomly lose the http location for two to four bookmarks and then those "zombie" bookmarks cannot be accessed, deleted, moved, or edited. I've tried Safe Mode, same problem. I've disabled all add-ons in Normal Mode, same problem. I've reverted to bookmark backups and everything is okay for a short time (minutes sometimes, hours others), then the problems reappear on different bookmarks. Totally frustrating and maddening.
