My kids were messing with my computer and must have pushed something and everything disappeared. I need to know how to put an address bar (back button, refresh, ect) back up into the top of my window. Part of the problem is that my computer screen is cracked and I can't see anything in my menu easily. A command that would restore the address bar would help. Thanks.

Every time I open a new tab it defaults to Yahoo search engine page. I hate this. I want a BLANK page as in earlier versions of firefox, or I want ability to customize tab (set website of my choice). How can I remove Yahoo from being the default page when I open a new TAB, and set my default tab website of choice.

Does yahoo own Firefox? If so I will install another browser all together.

I have two main printers to use at home and whenever I print a web page, Firefox automatically prints using the non-default printer. If I select the default printer from the drop down list, it works fine. I shouldn't have to select the default printer every time I want to print.

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

I have a new Windows 7 computer and the hard drive from my old computer (XP) The old hard drive is not bootable but I can see my complete old Firefox profile.

I have not exported the profile.

Ideally I would like to just copy the old profile to my new Firefox setup but Win 7 won't let me browse to the folder. (c:\Users\(name)\Application Data.

What I would like is basically a complete Import function where I could browse to the old profile and have Firefox just copy everything in? Does such a thing exist? Is there some other way to achieve what I'm trying to do?

Thanks.

I can log into gmail via Microsoft's Internet explorer so I know that my user name and password work. I have also added www.google.com to the list of allowable web sites in Firefox. The google account was started about two weeks ago and I had no trouble logging in until about 3 days ago. I have gone thru all the recovery steps suggested by google. I suspect that there is something between Firefox and google that needs fixing, but I do not know what.
