The constant updates associated with being a beta user are getting really annoying, and I want to opt out. Is it as easy as uninstalling, downloading the latest update of regular Firefox? Will all of my bookmarks and settings be saved?

I need to set up firefox in almost-kiosk mode. I want to disable all of the tool bars with the exception of the back button, forward button, refresh, and home buttons.

I haven't found anything that will hide the bookmarks toolbar. And if I keep in the #urlbar entry, the forward and back buttons appear, but don't work (they are greyed out)?

This is what I have so far:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */
#searchbar {
	display: none;
}
#main-menubar  {
	display: none;
}
#urlbar  {
  display: none;
}

When I use Google's Advanced Search (http://www.google.com/advanced_search), the result flashes onscreen for about one second, then I see only a blank screen. Hitting "Enter" again does not change this blank screen. This started about two days ago, around the time I upgraded to Firefox 10.0. Could this problem be caused by the upgraded Firefox? When I use the basic Google Search (https://www.google.com/webhp?hl=en), I don't have this problem. My OS is Windows 7.

After I update to FireFox 10 I am no longer able to execute javascript from the address bar. (instead of writting a url I could simply write: "javascript:<javascript here>;" and it worked fine). Is that a bug or this is going to be the policy from now on ? (I hope not ... I don't want to switch browser).

I have recently formatted my computer (doing a full system wipe, not just a settings wipe) and now Firefox isn't behaving. If I change my Firefox homepage to another homepage (IE Google) it will save it until I close out all my Firefox windows, then it goes back to the default homepage. I have tried doing a full Firefox uninstall, and deleting my profile and it's not working. I set the files to 'read only' and changed my homepage, and it still went back to the default. I have even deleted the prefs to no avail. I'm positive it's not malware as I have just formatted my computer (It was doing the same thing for a while last time I formatted as well but it somehow fixed itself) I do have Adblock and Status-4-ever installed, but those have been in my PC since before I formatted last time and have never caused a problem. They're also on my other computer, and it works fine as well. Any ideas on what I can do to fix this?

PS. Sorry if I'm in the wrong area. I'm a little bubblebrained today. =P

When I downloaded Firefox this morning and tried to play games on Facebook, the page would not come up. It said I needed to download the latest version of Flashplayer. I tried this and it would not initialize. Then I checked Help and it said to uninstall the version I had, which I did, and then reinstall. Now it will not install. I can play these games on Internet Explorer but I have issues with some pages not loading on Google Chrome. I have the pages I need on Firefox to receive my gifts but I cannot play the games. Please help?

I was switched to Mozilla Firefox 10.0 by a Dell representative. I had been using IE8. I have Windows 7-64bit operating system. I cannot read my toolbar on Mozilla it is so small and the font is black with gray background! Isn't that a great combination. Is there anyway to change the toolbar font size and color? I downloaded Amazon add-on on WOW! It is clear as a bell but Mozilla is absolutely horrible. If I can't get the toolbar modified I need to know another browser to use cause after 5 hours of trying to customize and use Firefox 10.0 I'm about done. I can't get any telephonic or chatline support. I've been in the knowledge base till I can recite it! And Kaspersky not compatible. What more of a nightmare do I need.

I used browserspy(http://browserspy.dk/os.php) to see my OS detected via JavaScript (OS CPU detected via JavaScript:Windows NT 6.1; WOW66 ).

I don't need to change User Agent. I managed this with add-on. I used this add-on also to change User Agent for JavaScript : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-js-fixer/

It is working i checked on browserspy.dk

But i have problem with operating system. If i change my User Agent to Windows NT 6.2, there will be still Windows NT 6.1; WOW66 detected via JavaScript. The User Agent detected via Java Script will be the right one. So the problem is Operating System.

Can you help me with this one? Can i change it somehow?
