My bookmarks and history have disappeared. The backwards and forwards arrows are not working. I followed all the different instructions in the lost bookmarks sections. when I renamed the file sqlite with .old and quite firefox I couldnt' reopen firefox. It kept saying a copy of firefox was already open. So I went back and renamed the file to default and then I was able to open firefox but still no bookmarks. I have tried all the options that come up there.

The promos and other bits of sidebar information that appear on my screen constantly are in reference to Spokane, WA. But I live in Walla Walla, WA, which is two hours away . . . I don't shop in Spokane! I don't care what the weather is there, or what the news is there! This is annoying. How do I change it.

I am very limited in my computer knowledge - I'll try and explain my problem as best I can. My location bar has mysteriously changed/gotten smaller/shorter and does not show the address of the website I am visiting. For example, I used to be able to copy and paste from there if I wanted to share a website with someone. Now all I have is a website symbol, does not show "http://------" and when I click on it I get the message "This website does not supply identity information. Your connection to this website is not encrypted".

Launched Firefox today and the pop-up indicated the new 4.0 is available. Clicked to download and install and message indicated a newer one was already there however I was running 3.6.something and restarted computer. I didn't see the circle with the line thru it indicating it was not usable. I attempted to uninstall everything connected to Mozilla/Firefox including 4.0 and then reinstalled 3.6. To make the long story short(er) I have the file "bookmarks-2011-03-23.json" but unable to import into Firefox Bookmarks.
