How do I get "Show All Bookmarks" choice to appear? Since it is missing I cannot backup my bookmarks.

My Bookmarks Toolbar has two items: Getting Started and RSS Feeds. When I click on the Bookmark icon, which follows my Navigation Toolbar, I have three choice in the drop-down list: Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, and Unsorted Bookmarks. Is this where the "Show All Bookmarks" should appear? Then, I can invoke something about Libraries?

I have a problem with the US version of Firefox page setup for printing being in millimeters and the default page size as A4 instead of letter.

The default page size is A4 instead of letter in the US version of Firefox (10.0.2). I know it was letter before. The margins were 0.5 inches now it is 12.7 millimeters. This has happened twice. I have unloaded extensions I thought may caused this but to no avail. It is a pain to export all the bookmarks, uninstall Firefox and remove any trace of the program and reinstall. Is there a way to make it default to letter again with inch size margins?

I have been running FF 10.0.2 for a while, and was just told by a website that I needed to have FF 14 or FF 15 running. I have always had auto update turned on, but evidently, it is not working. I've now been "checking for updates" on the update channel, with no results after being connected for over 1/2 hour.

All suggestions appreciated -- I would simply download and install the latest version, if that will not eradicate my existing data.

Thoughts, please?

Many thanks

12MAR14 0428 - I am running Firefox 10.0.2 on XP SP3 but, the non-admin users keep getting this annoying message "The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." The solution I have found to solve this on a previous version, does not work for this Firefox release. Has anyone who had this issue found a solution for this bothersome problem?

Is there a way to tell Forefox connect to the document that the shortcut is linked to? The .nrl file extension belongs to a piece of software called FileSite (document management system).
