How do I restore my firefox toolbar? It was my main toolbar. My other one is google. And then another site tried to install a toolbar that I did not want. When I unchecked to get rid of it, apparently I unchecked the firefox toolbar by accident. I don't know if that's what happened for sure, but I'm guessing that's what happened.

I am on a company domain. With IE my NT credentials (workstation logon credentials) are used for all Intranet web sites (within the local domain), so there are no authentication prompts. With Firefox I get hundreds of authentication prompts for these same web servers.

I did not copy settings from IE when I installed Firefox, as I wanted to start fresh and use a Firefox approach.

What setting am I missing in Firefox?

I saw that someone suggested going to tools then options, etc...but when I open the tools menu there is no text so I do not even know where to click and even when some text appears it is not the full menu. I have tried reinstalling Firefox but this did not help.

The Status bar has suddenly disappeared from the bottom right hand corner of the screen. I've checked 'view > status bar' and tried reinstalling Firefox again and rebooted to no avail.

This has happened since a virus was caught by NOD32 anti-virus software if that's relevant.

Does anyone know how to solve this? Thanks in advance.

If needs be I have no problem formatting my main drive and starting over but would rather not have to spend 2 days doing it. I have separate C: & D: drives and install as little as possible on the C: drive as it is only 10gig, D: drive is 20gig so memory is at a premium. Thanks for any help you can give

If i close Firefox i cannot reopen it afterwards because the process is still running in the taskbar. I already disabled all plugins and addons but this didn't work. I tried to uninstall and reinstall (without deleting personal data) without success. If i start firefox in safe mode the problem also occures. If i start firefox with another user on my pc there is no problem.

Anyone an idea?

Whenever an update to Firefox comes out, it always changes the ability to keep the Page Zoom feature saved. I used to zoom it 3 times (my regular size) and then it would save until the next time I opened Firefox. Now, however, it resets back to the smallest size every time I navigate to a different page or site. Is there any way to fix this? It's really quite annoying.
