I want google as my search engine, not Bing. How do I make Google the default search engine in the "Search the Web" feature of the search bar; or, how do I remove the "Search the Web" feature of the search bar so that "Google" can be default?

I want google as my search engine, not Bing. But no matter what I do in "Manage Search Engines," Firefox seems to reset to "Search the Web," which uses Bing.

How do I make Google the default search engine in the "Search the Web" feature of the search bar; or, how do I remove the "Search the Web" feature of the search bar so that "Google" can be default? When I move "Search the Web" down and "Google" up, the search bar resets every time Firefox reloads.

I upgraded to the beta version of Firefox 4.0, and my browser language automatically changed from English to German. How do I switch it back?

It seems that the option to change the browser language under Options > Advanced > went away with Firefox 4.0.; at least I don't see it anymore.

Firefox allows you to select your prefered language to view a website under Options > Content, but this has no effect on the browser language.

Please advise.

A user on my workstation uses Firefox and has visited a site that installed "Win 7 Internet Security 2011" on this machine. I successfully identified and removed the Trojan virus software. The browsers where neutralized by this virus and are inoperable. I created a new user account for this person. This user has been reinfected with the new account.

I want to find out where this user has been to identify where this Trojan virus is coming from. The only way I know how to do this is by reviewing the history log file to see where this person has been. I want to review the history location as the administrator of the machine; not use the infected user account. If there is a better way to do this outside of the infected user account, I am open to suggestions.

I am reading a pdf online and I want to follow an embedded link, but I get a security block telling me "In safe reading mode, this document does not allow connection to: http://www.sandiego.gov.development-services/ industr/pdf/infobulletin/ib500.pdf

If you want to enable this function, please check the Trust Manager preferences to change out of safe reading mode."

I looked through every menu item in the tool bar and couldn't find the Trust Manager.

I did this before and it worked perfectly, but I had a major problem and had to reinstall my OS. The default setting (starting with 3.6?) drives me crazy and I want all newly opened tabs to report to the end of the line. I found the solution on (this?) forum (last year?) but could not find it in a search (thread deleted?). I would rather not download and use the add-on New tabs do not appear to the right of the last tab since I know it is a simple 1/0 setting in the Firefox core settings. How do I get there and do this?

I am using Mac OS 10.5 and Firefox 4
