When I download .avi files and the like, Firefox assumes I want to "open" them, forcing me to click the "Save as" button every time.

The "Do this automatically from now on..." box I want to use, is greyed out; in other words, I can't change the default setting.

I tried to alter the setting in the tools -> application to "Save file", but it didn't help me.

I got the message that it was time to download the newest version of Firefox. I clicked, and followed the steps. It showed to be downloading, and it checked for viruses, etc. But the message is still showing that it is "urgent" that I download the newest version or I won't be protected. When I click the "Help" and "check for newest versions" it shows me there is nothing available. What should I do next??

1. Can a toolbar be moved (up/down to another row) ?

2. Can a toolbar be resized , so to adjust two (maybe even 3) different toolbars on a single row?

If not, this would be a nice feature because it would provide more space for the main space showing webpage ( by eliminating wasted lost space at the top/bottom rows. )

Thank you

i have tried numerous times and ways to get firefox 4 to work with google, bing etc, but every time it just freezes up, either just going into limbo state or imediately flagging up that firefox is not responding. trying to close it can prove difficult when in this state too, as it can take upto 4 attempts to close untill it finally draws down the screen to close. I read the support section earlier for suggestions an downloaded another virus/ malware program... i shut my bullguard down and ran this, hoping to get results, restarted the comp as prompted and .......... still no joy with search engines, msn, ebay, face book etc all work fine, just no search engines,.... the best way to describe what happens is.... first the loading icons are green.... they just stop spinning.... then the cursor will either stay as a pointer or look like a capitol I..... at this point i cannot do anything, no clicks to open or close the browser down as it just stops, when i click on the cross to close, it asks if i want to end a non responsive prog, and i click yes...... and do it again and again and again before it relinquishes and slides down the screen .. albeit slowly to close help !!!!!!! never had this problem before updating to firefox 4

I have read most of the information available for the, "Firefox is not able to show the Toolbar. Please re-install the Toolbar" fixes and nothing works. I can get google toolbar and any other toolbars I want to use but I cannot seem to get rid of this stupid button and the space it wastes at the top of the screen. Is there an easy fix that doesnt require an engineering degree?

When I open Monzilla Foxfire to get to the google window, I am greeted with an 'urgent update message' to update my foxfire for my protection. This occurs on an almost daily basis and to assure that my use is protected I download the free protection that you offer two, three, four times a week, sometimes daily. How often am I suppose to download? And am I doing something wrong?

Running Windows XP pro, all software is up to date, running latest versions of firefox.----these buttons do work when using any other browser. In firefox, the buttons are visible but they wont change the pointer arrow to the finger when you mouse over them. This seems to have been doing this since the new version of hotmail has been out. The forums on hotmail have asked this same question but the customers are always directed to go back to the web browser developers.
