I have reverted to 3.5 because the latest versions of FF include some nonsense called plugin-container. FF was brilliant prior to the plugin-container but now it is noticeably slower.

Are there any early versions of 3.6 without the plugin-container available for download.

Can someone fix the plugin-container nonsense. FF was perfect prior to the plugin-container

Updating Firefox resets all settings, disables all plugins, turns off all add-ons, but does not erase favorites, history, or the existance of these plugins and such, but rather, it does not let them load.

This has happened several times, so I eventually disabled the "Update the Firefox" setting in my options.

Alas, Firefox weaseled around it and updated it on its own and against my will. Sick of it, I decided to let it work. As it ahd several times, the upgraded Firefox was reset to its original grey, themeless, no-frills, blank slate with all add-ons, plugins, toolbars, and features completely wiped.

I go into "Tools/Add-Ons" and everything that I have is there. All add-ons are accounted for, all plugins attended to, all themes instated, and all extensions set exactly as they were before the update. The only problem is that I can't get them back. They are all compatible with this edition of Firefox, but they won't come back.

This has been driving me crazy and has really made me frustrated.

I implore the community to assist me with this wretched error. Please help me fix the Firefox and allow for my customizations to return!

Google was my search engine anytime I would type just keywords into the line where you type web addresses. However, I somehow must have uploaded a new search engine called 'Inbox', which I don't care for, and now I have to type keywords into the search to the right of the screen to use google. I would like to make google my permanent search engine when using Firefox. Any suggestions? I thought I had already deleted the inbox toolbar, but it didn't change my search engine. I am not so computer savvy so...

Windows has crashed and I have to reinstall Vista. I cannot therefore make a backup of my bookmarks but I assume there is a file somewhere on my crashed disk that carries that detail. If so, can I copy that file and replace it in my new installation of firefox. If this file exists I would appreciate knowing the name of the file that I should copy, and the directory that I might find it in.
