Whenever I try and reorder my bookmarks (when I save one it isn't at the end anymore it's in the middle of the list) and another of mine got moved on accident, I cannot make them stay in place. I used to be able to just click bookmarks, and drag the bookmark wherever I wanted it and it stayed, or open organize and move them there, but neither places allows them to stay! This is driving me insane. Help! there has to be a way to move the bookmark where I want it in the list!

I was looking for particular recipes, and when I downloaded them a new tool bar arrived called Total recipe search. Now every time I access mozilla firefox "wot" informs me the site has a poor reputation. I cannot find a download file as it went straight to the browser, and it will not "restore" to a previous date. I do not know how to remove this. I have used Firefox for years. Please help if you can

I am running FF 6.0.2 on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 on a network, but FF is installed on my local machine. I set my start pages to Yahoo and Google News, but FF overwrites my settings. Each time I reset my preferences and start the browser it displays the whats new and first run tabs. It seems to treat each instance as a brand-new install.

I had disabled or removed all of my addons and basically started with a "safe" firefox in case there was some conflict, but that didn't help.

My bookmarks and security passwords settings do not change, but it reverts to "Remember history" when I use the "Custom settings" option in the Privacy window.

The about:config settings for browser.startup and startup.homepage are:

browser.startup.homepage_override.buildID; user set; string; 20110902133214

browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone; user set; string; rv:6.0.2

startup.homepage_override_url; default; string http://www.mozilla.com/%LOCALE%/%APP%/%VERSION%/whatsnew/

startup.homepage_welcome_url; default; string; http://www.mozilla.com/%LOCALE%/%APP%/%VERSION%/firstrun/

Just suddenly 3 hours ago, letmewatchthis.ch stopped working for me "Unable to connect




         Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.letmewatchthis.ch.
       



 The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
   moments.
 If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
   connection.
 If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
   that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

All other sites are fine and I have used letmewatchthis over 1,000 times. I ha it tested on a few on the test sites and apparently it is just me :/

Youtube Audio keep reloading/overlapping?

For the past few days, whenever I load a Youtube™ video, the audio will start up normally for a few seconds before another copy of the audio starts playing a few moments behind the first. This keeps repeating until the video becomes a jumble of overlapping noise!

The problem only seems to occur when I use the latest edition of Firefox™, I was able to view videos just fine when I tried it in Internet Explorer™. When I look at my browser tabs, it appears that the page is connecting and re-connecting repeatedly without the page being refreshed.

Is this a problem with the latest Firefox™ update? The problem did not start immediately upon updating, so I'm not sure. Or something in the settings that makes it keep loading the audio over and over?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

ps. I'm on my work computer atm not my home one that it's happening to, I cannot look a Youtube™ here.

Please Help Me as I cant watch ANY Youtube due to the audio reloading bug.

I had FF running fully OK, but then tried to upgrade to FF9. After downloading the FFicon was crossed over, an a dialogbox said that my system did not support this version. So I threw this away and downloaded version 6, but this still has the crossed over thing, and won't open. How can I get a version of Firefox running on my Mac? Everything else works perfectly.

Hi, Since installing Firefox 6, when I've tried opening a PDF, the entire image looks like it's been run through a bad copy machine that's almost out of ink, and is semi-transparent. (I can see the wallpaper image on my desktop through the PDF.) I have Adobe Reader X version 10.1.0 installed, which appears to be the most recent plug-in. (I've checked that all my Adobe plug-ins are up-to-date, and also disabled every plug-in but Adobe Acrobat, and the problem persists.) I've also noticed this problem with some of the text in Flash applications I've opened, such as a practice quiz site for a textbook I'm using for school. This does not happen in Internet Explorer, or when I open a PDF in the Adobe viewer, leading me to think it's a Firefox issue. It's pretty frustrating that I can't read my online documents or study for my exams using Firefox, since overall it's my browser of choice. Any advise on how I can try to correct this issue? Thanks.
