Bing has somehow sneaked onto the browser, probably when I installed new software. I am now missing some of the buttons I usually have replaced by the stupid bing toolbar. I hate bing, it is useless for me. Do I need to uninstall Firefox and reinstall it? I can't even find my bookmarks now. Other than Java and WOT, I don't usually have much in the way of plug-ins I use Win7 and Firefox 3 something

Firefox used to open with my iGoogle homepage when I opened it up. I have created my personal homepage and that's what I want when I open. Suddenly, it started opening with the last page I was on in a previous session. When I noticed this, I made sure to close every page that was open before I signed off Firefox. Still, it will open with the last page of the previous session.

All I want is for Firefox to open my iGoogle page every time, as my homepage, when I go online with Firefox. How do I do that? I think I've checked some box I didn't intend to but I cannot find what it is. Is this something I do through Google? If so, sorry, but this is annoying and wasting a lot of my time figuring out how to make my life 'easier.' thanks.

When trying to print anything from the Web, only the left portion of the page will print, nothing from the middle to the right of the page showing. It shows this on the print preview. I tried taking it off shrink to fit and it still doesn't show the right half of the page, the print is just larger. I can print anything from Internet Explorer and from Quickbooks, but not from Firefox. I have downloaded all of the versions up to 5.0. It did print before upgrade, but I don't remember which version actually worked.

I recently came to Firefox from IE due to many problems. Firefox is great and I don't have any of the old problems. I do miss one feature from IE that I cant find on Firefox. When looking at a web site, if the display isn't large enough, I was able to enlarge the page with a size selector in the lower right corner. Does Firefox have a similar selector?

Yesterday StartNow and Bing appeared on my screen with a toolbar. I don't think I did anything to cause them to appear. i managed to get rid of the toolbar. I went to the remove programs screen on my control panel and there is nothing there to remove for StartNow or Bing. I removed a cookie for Start Now, but it did no good.

I suspect this is a scam of some sort. Banks have fraud departments that they ask recipients to forward this type of e-mail to. Do you have the same type of policy?

Having an intermittent problem (90% of the time) creating and replying to emails in Hotmail. We can read emails okay and when trying to write or reply to an email all other aspects of the page are fine (menus, To:, CC:, Subject boxes etc ) except the area where you type the email. This is populated with the term "Bad Request". Works okay in IE and I have tried the Firefox cookies/cache clearing trick and tried Firefox safe mode to no avail. This has been a problem for about four days and it did not coincide with any Firefox updates to the best of my knowledge. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Excuse me, but my Firefox 3.6 just randomly stopped working. It won't let me browse the Internet anymore-- the error message it always gives me is "Unable to connect", even though I'm fully connected to the Internet. Earlier I opened up Safari and Internet Explorer 9-- both, in which, let me browse the Internet, and I had a full connection. But, whenever I use Firefox now, it says "Unable to connect". And every time I type in a URL on it, Firefox gives me the SAME error message. I don't know what to do now. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it does the same thing. So now I am stuck with using Safari, when I really wanna use my Firefox. Why is it doing this?

I am using FF 3.6.18 on XP, Vista, and Win7. Since FF updated itself to 3.6.18, I'm missing all kinds of addon icons. Needless to say, most addons can't work unless the icon there to click. When I went to the [toolbar customize] window to drag the icons back out to the menu/tool/status bars, I find that ALL of my addon icons missing. The default FF icons are there, but all of the addon icons are missing. I have seen lots of posts from people with the same problem running FF4, but it is not a problem only with version 4. Most of the replies given have advised going to the customize window and dragging the icons back out - obviously written by people who weren't reading the question very carefully. Others recommend clicking the [restore default icons] button. They haven't read the question very carefully either. I have this problem on all my PCs, those running XP, Vista, and 7. Yes, I have already run virus and spyware checkers, and that didn't help any of my PCs. Reinstalling the addons doesn't help either. Since the problem is on all my PCs of various OSs, and upgrading to FF4 only seems to make things worse, it seems like a FF bug. Most of my friends who use Firefox have the same problem. Is it a bug, or is it fixable? Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this?

Just recently---about a week,I'm experiencing extreme slowness, and crashes. Also, it seems the computer---an old one, just keeps running or looking for something, even though it seems I'm at the website and it doesn't need to do this? This used to not be a problem, but now it is. From a novices point of view, It just seems the computer wants to keep computing when it probably doesn't need to? I keep getting the two messages: Firefox not responding---associated with the little hour glass, and unresponsive script. These are the message's I get when things get slow and "unresponsive". Hope someone can help. I do try to keep up with the computer maintenance; hard disk, and defragging. But, that makes no difference. I have noticed though recently, that when I do clear space on my hard disk, I keep showing a lot of space can be cleared compared to normal? Thank you.
