How do I get "Show All Bookmarks" choice to appear? Since it is missing I cannot backup my bookmarks.

My Bookmarks Toolbar has two items: Getting Started and RSS Feeds. When I click on the Bookmark icon, which follows my Navigation Toolbar, I have three choice in the drop-down list: Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, and Unsorted Bookmarks. Is this where the "Show All Bookmarks" should appear? Then, I can invoke something about Libraries?

I used to be able to just click on a site address and drag it to the bookmarks toolbar so that all I had to do was click on the name and go right to that site. Right now I have several but the toolbar isn't even half full. Yet, somehow I am no longer able to do it. I click on the site address to highlight it, and drag it down to the toolbar to add it but when it gets to the toolbar it has one of those circles with a line going through it indicating that it isn't allowed. I don't know why I could do it in the past but can't now. Is there are setting that I might have chosen that changed the ability to do that? I have only adblock as an addon. I'm sure I had that when I added the other sites. Unless I am incorrectly remembering how I did that before but I am pretty sure I just clicked and dragged. Can anyone tell me what might have changed to not allow this anymore?

I was told that this "search-results" are due to a malware program called "searchqu". I've deleted everything about searchqu from my computer, I've run mal-ware scans, and virus scans, and I have gone into the about:config to do google's start page. I just want the original firefox start page back because it has the restore session button and USED TO have google as the default search engine. Please help.

I added a Yahoo Toolbar to Firefox that was customized for Frontier Communications. I have Ghostery installed as an add-on, and it flashed a message that the Yahoo toolbar interfered with its effective operation and I should either disable or uninstall the toolbar. I opened the Add-ons Manager to do this, and much to my surprise it now showed no extensions at all, yet they all seemed to still be working! All my plug-ins show up when I look at that on the Add-ons Manager. I checked out the "Get add-ons feature, and it tries to load but is not successful. I am running Firefox 10.0.2.

Hi there I really hope someone can help!

I have an AcerAspire 5920 running Window Vista

Thunderbird has become very slow - up to 10 seconds to load a page (especially since this Monday).

So far I have: Used 3 different malware checkers ( My normal F Secure, plus SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes) and got rid of 3 trojans (all Tracur).

Installed SpeedyFox - no effect

Updated Plug-ins

Experimented by disabling all plug-ins to see if that speeded things up - it didn't

Checked the speed of connection with my ISP. It is fine

Now for some weird reason, since I updated my Firefox Plugins, I can't open Thunderbird at all - I just get the whirring circle for a few seconds then nothing!

Has anyone got a solution? Please!

The new encryption software Mozilla added with update 10 is terrible. It's paranoid, no way to delete the web sites it collects. I do not like being monitored & even if it's not seen by anyone but me I want it gone! It prevents me from adding a new address to the bar on top since it gets locked up. It stinks, It sucks. How can I delete the sites I've visited & why is it being kept anyway?

Have tried the usual trouble shooting. When changing the page style to 'No Style' - the text displays.

Manually disabling all addons and plugins doesn't fix the issue however when using Firefox in safemode, the text appears fine.

Changing the character encoding does not alleviate the issue. Running windows 7 x64 with all the latest updates and the latest firefox.

Chrome displays twitter and tumblr fine.

Firefox 3.x works, however after upgrading to 10.0.2 it will crash whenever starting up.

Platform: Windows 2003 Terminal Server with Citrix.

We have excluded the firefox.exe from the ctxhook and it doesn't help (we know this fixes crashing on startup on Xendesktop deployments).

I'm trying to use a ssl proxy with accounts.google.com.

Usually, firefox warns me about invalid certs, however it let me add an exception if I wanted to connect to it anyway.

But, if i want to connect to accounts.google.com, it blocks me, and it doesn't let me add that exception.

Why it happens only with this subdomain?
