I had to replace my motherboard and install a new operating system on a new hard drive. Windows 7.

The old hard drive has windows 7 OEM and would not boot with the new MB.

I need to recover the bookmarks from the old HD which is connected to the new MB.

I can access the folders. I just can't find the bookmarks. 

I need them to be complete because I used hints in the bookmarks to be able to sign in to some sights that I can't remember.

Help Please!

How do I disable HTTPS redirect. I am "aware of the risks" blah blah paranoid blah. And well aware of what I'm doing. But for some reason with 32 no everything heads over to https including non-https bookmarks.

No matter how I type it in; HTTP://www.xxxx www.xxxxx

I would like to find some way, by setting, about:config command (or hack if I have to) or even an extension someone could point me to that could stop this maddening overuse of secure transfers.

But by now I completely removed Nightly, and installed the normal Firefox, but still nothing happens after rightclicking in the screen > in, e.g. the bookmark toolbar it does work properly, but not anywhere while browsing!

When I try to access me Barclays Online Banking webpage I receive this error message : The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

If I clear my history I can then access the Barclays login page and re-enter my details but as soon as I log out I receive the error message once again when I go back. I have no problem whatsoever using this website with Internet Explorer.

Please help !!

When I try to scroll down using the middle mouse button, it goes so slowly that I can't stand it, so I use the scroll bar to the right. This is annoying to me. When I reset the mouse button on my windows to more lines, it makes it scroll too fast for my docs, but does not affect the scrolling in FireFox. I've looked for tools and options for this, and can't find anything to do about it.

I cannot open my gmail account on Firefox. I am getting the page that says clear cache, set privacy etc. I have done everything it says to do. But nothing works. My gmail was working last night. I shut down my computer for the night. I then signed on this morning and I am now getting the cookie page. I went to Internet Explorer and was able to open my gmail. But of course Internet Explorer no longer supports or protects etc etc. I also checked to see if my Firewall/Anti-virus was the problem but it is not. What can I do now?

I think the question is self explanatory. But, When I installed Mcafee Total Protection a long while ago, I think it put a secure search thing into my search engine list, and when I remove it, the option to "Restore Defaults" becomes clickable and if I click it, Mcafee's Secure Search is brought back??? How can I fix this? Please help it's pretty annoying, as I don't like Mcafee.

P.S. "Resetting Firefox" didn't work.
