I tried upgrading to 3.6.8 and IMMEDIATELY following the upgrade all internet access was lost for all programs. This happened 4 times in a row with no variation at all. Lan access was unaffected. Pages would not load, error message was that they timed out. When I back down to 3.5.4 the internet access IMMEDIATELY returns for all programs.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== immediately following upgrade to 3.6.8

How do I import passwords from an old profile without simply replacing the new set: to add them into the stored passwords in the new profile

How do I import passwords - and preferably bookmarks, but I can get to that later - from a mozilla profile I pulled off a failing hard drive, and ADD THEM into the passwords I have saved on another computer - but NOT to replace them. In other words, not to remove the password files for the working version of firefox in the process of transferring it over. Also, they're 2 different versions of firefox. There's a key3.db file all right, but the one I'm trying to bring over has signons2.txt, and not signons.sqlite. At the very least I need to access 2 of the passwords just to find out what they are, and the bookmarks are .html files instead of .json files. Why on earth did you change the file formats for later versions anyway, it's stupid.

It just started showing up a few days ago and although it's not on every site the ones where it shows up it's very annoying. It started after I upgraded to 3.6.15 so I did a system restore thinking it was something with the computer and went back to the browser version before that and it still had the new horizontal scrollbar. When I opened Firefox this morning it automatically upgraded back to 3.6.15 and it still does it, most notably on Facebook and Yahoo but on other sites too.
