When I tried to install an addon, it downloaded and told me to restart Firefox, which I did. However, when I opened the addon menu, the addon wasn't there. Furthermore, some (and only some) addons, like Adblock Plus, stopped working. I tried to reinstall the addon, and it said it had installed (with no need to restart). I opened the addon menu again, and the addon was there and said it was enabled, but it wasn't working. When I clicked the Options button, Firefox froze in an odd way: My mouse would not click anywhere on the window, but I could still scroll with the wheel, manipulate tabs with keyboard shortcuts, and type in the address bar and other fields. I restarted, removed the addon, restarted again, and finally ABP started working again and all was back to normal. I tried this with several different addons, and it behaved the exact same way each time. Anybody know what's going on?

I had to get a new modem from Comcast today and after doing that, it updated my firefox with a new homepage and links on my toolbar, both easily removed and fixed. But what I can't figure out is how to fix my facebook so that I can still upload photos. It had come up and said facebook was untrusted (something I've never encountered before) and now after several tries, I can no longer upload photos! I had to *gasp* sign in via IE to do it. I have cookies allowed from facebook and I allow pop-ups, so I can't figure out what else needs to change to let this happen again. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I know this has been asked before but the similar questions I was shown before were over a year old and the users were still on v3.n and since we're now on v16.n I figured I should probably ask just in case anything has changed. It seems like if I use an HTML bookmark file then it should add to instead of overwriting the bookmarks on the receiving computer. Is that still the case? Thanks.

I'm trying to change the name of the main menu item "Bookmarks". As for the submenu items, I was successful with modifying their "content" via userChrome.css. But setting some different name in a "content" of the bookmarksMenu this way only results in displaying the new name of the menu with its label "Bookmarks" next. How can I change the label or supress its displaying?
