I had to buy new computer cause the old one will not stay powered on, and I want/need to get all my Firefox Info - Bookmarks etc... to my new computer. I had everything (supposedly) backed up on an WD external drive and I can't get info off of it either. My other computer was 5 years old and I have used Firefox from the beginning so there is a lot of info I desperately need.

I have Windows 7 and use Firefox. All of a sudden when I try to sign in on one of my computers to ebay a window pops up and tells me "Your web browser settings are blocking cookies"--therefore I can`t sign in. My other computers do not have this problem. I have changed no cookie settings in the Options/Privacy section. What did I screw up and how can I correct it?

Whenever I use google, which is often since it is my homepage, unless the thing I want to search for is within the first couple of auto-searches that pop up when I'm typing, the auto search will stop and if I press enter or click the search icon Firefox will freeze and I have to shut it down and try again. However, I have no problems when I try it with Firefox in Private browsing.

When I open a link in a new tab it does not switch to it automatically. I had to reinstall firefox to stop it from switching to new tabs automatically since the option being unticked didn't stop it from happening anyway. Now only when I open a bookmard in a new tab it still switches to the new tab and I do not want it to. Why is it doing this with the option unchecked and a fresh install with no add ons of any sort? And how do I make it stop?

The new gestures in Firefox 9 for OSX Lion that enable you to browse forward and backward with a two-fingered swipe are driving me crazy.

I like the idea, but it's way too sensitive. Every time I'm trying to scroll up or down a page (which also uses two fingers), I accidentally go back because I apparently don't have the skills to swipe up and down the track pad in a perfectly vertical line.

If the feature was adjusted so that the back and forth swiping wasn't so sensitive, this would be a wonderful feature. But as it currently is, it's destroying my browsing experience in Firefox to the point where I'm considering switching browsers.

I haven't found a way to disable just this feature and only in Firefox. Help?
