I have recently decided to take the plunge and have installed two addons but, unfortunately, I can't find one of them on my Firefox's Toolbars, including the addon bar. I thought they would both automatically be added to one or another of the bars. One is on my addon bar but the other is missing although, according to the Addons Manager, it is enabled. Is there something I have to do to be able to add this to either one of my Toolbars, or the addon bar? I use Windows 7 and Firefox 9.0.1

Hello. When I was on the internet with previous Firefox, there was Trusteer Rapport (A seurity software for UK banking: http://www.trusteer.com/) icon was still there. However after Firefox gave me an update alart to be 9.0.1 on Mac OSX 10.6.8 today and after I followed the update in this early evening, Trusteer Rapport is gone. I have re-installed the latest Trusteer Rapport and re-launched Firefox for several times, however, it is still missing. The Trusteer Rapport is a required security software to log in to the secure banking websites such as RBS, NatWest and HSBC (UK) etc and also it validates web security for Paypal and eBay by the Trusteer Rapport icon on Firefox, therefore I require. How should I do? I have none of other additional add-on/plug-in installed, because previous Firefox has crashed by a conflict of Trusteer Rapport and Nectar Yahoo Toolbar before. If it was a bug, please fix it asap please. Thank you.

I have a small company hosting Joomla websites and i deliver Website Services. In this case i was working on updating all my websites (60!) and suddenly i couldn't update the component settings (AceSEF component).

As this problem occured with one of my older websites i thought it must be something in Joomla. After 3 hours i just checked it with Explorer and the error didn't occure. After that i checked the firefox version (9.01). I started another pc with firefox 8.x, checked it and Joomla and AceSEF worked corrrect. I checked the version and it was downloading the update to 9.01. After update to 9.01 i checked again and the error occured on at least 5 sites. It must be something within Firefox 9.01.

If you can tell me how i can rollback the update (from 9.01 to version 8) i can check it again (... and i can go on with my work :-)).
