The green arrows for page forward or back at the top left under File and Edit disappeared after I downloaded the new Firefox toolbar (for 3.6) and were replaced by Most Visited, Getting Started and Latest headlines Icons, which I have little use for. How do I get the Original Toolbar back?

I keep my Firefox up-to-date at all times but the last few weeks Gmail has been telling me that I am using an older version which it no longer supports even though I have the updated version. I was notified that Firefox could be updated to the newest version, which I did. After the update when I opened Firefox it told me that I needed to update to the newest version which I had already done. How can I fix this?

Within five minutes of opening gmail, I receive a notice that i need to upgrade as gmail is not supported by the older version of Firefox. It also declares that gmail may not run properly without the upgrade. After five unsuccessful upgrade attempts, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled the latest version as it was shown by Mozilla. All looked well for no more than five minutes when the warning reappeared. This is very irritating and worrisome as I need this laptop for my daily business duties. What next?

I'm running firefox 3.something, I think, and I keep trying to install the latest version on my mac. I go through saving it, opening it, dragging the icon to my apps file...and when I drag it to my apps file it takes a few seconds to do *something*, pings at me and then...nothing after that. I try to open it and it tells me I have to close firefox first, so I do (restart even) and when it opens again it still opens the old version.

My new laptop (still waiting for delivery) will have Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I've read on this site that it's okay to use Firefox, even though it's designed for 32 bit, but I'm not sure how to transfer my bookmarks.

I've taken a look at the sync add-on. Unfortunately, this has been removed by its developer.

Does anyone know how I can transfer the bookmarks to the new laptop?

Thanks.

I have windows XP on my computer. To access certain sites i am getting a message pop saying i need the latest version of windows, which i download and install... or so i thought. Everything appears to go as it should and i get no error messages or signs that something has gone wrong. Yet when i then re-visit these sites (i.e Deviant art) it is still stating i do not have the latest version of firefox. I contacted the deviant art website who confirmed that my browser is showing as Firefox 3.5.3.
