Had to "restore to 2 days earlier" to get rid of music add-on, but found that top line showing "file, edit, tools, etc also disappeared. What did I do wrong? How do I get them back? Also "Back" arrow. Presently only shows "Firefox - Mozilla Firefox" (top line) and bars on next line showing site shown on screen. Center of page shows "google search". Help?

In the latest version of Gmail, no search form history will save, but it does in the old version of Gmail. I have checked all clear history settings and they are all correct, as it does not delete any other form history including the old version of Gmail. This only occurs in the new version, which is why I've continued to use the older version. I have also checked for plugin conflicts and there are none. I'm on WinXP-SP3 using the latest 3.6.6 version of Firefox.

whenever i close firefox (osx 10.6.3, firefox 3.6.6), i come back to find the history gone. i've looked for answers and tried all sorts: my prefs all are set to saving history, i'm not set to start in private browsing, i've downloaded a new copy of firefox and replaced the old, and following advice from a forum i went into about.config and checked that general.useragent was not in bold, it wasn't. the problem even persisted when i recently upgraded from osx tiger to snow leopard

the weirdest thing is that using history>show all history, it is completely blank when i start up. but if i type stuff into the url bar, it comes up with history results (not bookmarks, i've checked) that i haven't visited in months, years even, there's history results for maps for a game i sold 2 years ago

I just want to remove some book marks. The suggested procedure says to go to the bookmarks pulldown menu and select Organize Bookmarks. Then the library window opens and you select the folder that contains the bookmarks you want to remove. But the bookmarks I want to remove aren't in folders and they are not listed in the library window.

When I have logged on to Ubuntu as "Bob" Firefox shows www.bob.com at startup. When I have logged on to Ubuntu as "Another" Firefox shows www.another.com. "Show my windows and tabs from last time" works but the www.bob.com shows in an additional tab. Home page is not changed. "Show my home page" works ok too but the www.bob.com shows in an additional tab.

The Search Engine Bar offers and collects Search Engines seemingly at will, and personal choice settings are not retained. Until recently it always held my Yahoo Engine as my primary, but now it has been taken over by Ask. Even if I delete it, it returns and takes over. Has Mozilla made some kind of arrangement to allow this behavior? Sorry, but it sure looks like someone made a dominance deal to have this forced on people. Why don't the choices we make stick? This is incredibly annoying. If you have some kind of back door fix involving digging through code to re-write, please don't bother. I appreciate the creativity but I'd rather have this working as it should to begin with. And if you're selling out to forced advertising, come clean.
