I'm on Firefox 3.6.8. I know that they're not bookmarks. I've of course highlighted them, and deleted with the DEL key, but when I type them in they come back. I deleted places.sqlite, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. It was fine for a few minutes, but then the entire history came back. What can I do to get rid of it?

Oh, and switching it to only showing Bookmarks or Nothing doesn't seem to work

This has happened twice in the past week. When I create a new folder nested inside two other existing folders, another folder in another branch is renamed to the newly-created folder's name. The folder that is being renamed is inside the Links folder. (I am not expecting an answer. I cannot find another place where I can report an issue with the browser.)

FF updated to 3.6.8 today. I misread the install question re: importing bookmarks and selected 'do not import'. I meant to not import any from IE, but to keep my FF bookmarks. The only Bookmarks.html file I can find on my drive is the empty default one from the new upgrade. Is my old file saved anywhere so I can restore it? I'm running Window XP. Thanks for any help!

I cleaned up a malware infection and, upon opening Firefox, I got a notice that a new add-on had been installed. It is called XULRunner 1.9.1 and appears to be from Mozilla. Given that I'd just had the malware infection, though, I'm suspicious of anything new adding itself.

Could anyone tell me if this is a legitimate add-on and what exactly it's for/does? Thank you very much!

I had told the computer to delete cookies when I shut the computer off. I followed your route to Tools > Options > Privacy > History and saw that Accept all cookies until they expire was already checked. BUT unchecking Clear history when Firefox closes reversed the problem (I had checked it -- now I unchecked it). Thanks for directing me to that location. Yahoo! keeps me logged in now!
