Issue

I have a problem with my bookmarks, cookies, history or settings

Description

Recently installed Google Xmarks and immediately lost any star bookmark functionality. Any new bookmarks I try to create are given the title of the last previous webpage I tried to create (which wouldn"t be a major issue only a nuisance to copy & paste the correct name in) but ALL new bookmarks are directed to some version of "http://ad.yieldmanager.com/iframe3?sI" instead of the correct site. Have diablrd and then uninstalled Xmarks but the problem remains. Use the latest version of Firefox for Linux Ubuntu 9.04. Thanks.

I closed my file/edit/view etc and the address bar, and now there's no way to open them back up again. No way to get to internet tools, etc. Whenever i right click anywhere (the same thing i did to close them) i either get options for tabs (as i'm clicking on the tabs bar, the highest point in firefox now that there's no other bars) or just options for web pages when i right click them. there's nothing i see that i can do without reinstalling and losing all of my settings. 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.
