On the Start Page screen (16.0.1) you now show icons at the bottom of the page (Downloads, Bookmarks, History, Add-ONs, Sync, Settings) which are a duplicate of the various buttons at the top of the screen. Is there a way to remove these icons? These appear on my Windows 7 and Vista computers.

Whenever I type something on the Address Bar, the list of previously visited sites doesn't display the text address anymore but instead only show the favicon associated with the site.

I do not know if this is a bug or a new feature from Firefox but I do want the text on my dropdown menu on the address bar to show.

Im using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit running with Mozilla FIrefox 16.0.1

The address bar used to show a line between search / auto-complete results. Now the line is gone and it's very hard to see the grouping of description and URL and find what I'm looking for, they all blend together. I want the line back! I really wish FF wouldn't make these changes - make them available as an option, not forced.

Whenever I open Firefox without Safe Mode, it will function for a few seconds, and then stop responding. (NOTE: It does not say "not responding" anywhere; it just appears nonresponsive.) Whenever a piece of the UI needs to change, (e.g., hovering over a button, typing in a search box, LOADING A WEBPAGE...) the entire area turns black. This includes EVERYTHING within the window's boundary: Title bar, tab thumbnails, the ENTIRE FRAME THAT WEB PAGES LOAD IN; all of it.

Safe Mode is currently the only fix for it, (I haven't Reset it yet;) disabling ALL the addons (including themes) didn't help.

If I am editing the location of a website in the Bookmarks Library (ex. from imab.com to imdb.com) then all the tags that I have listed for that website disappear (ex. if I had movie, info, actors as my tags they all disappear). Is there a way around that or a fix for it?

My Windows 7 automatically updated recently and so did Firefox. Now, with all other Windows applications including Internet Explorer, I can open a new window by right-clicking on the icon in the taskbar (showing there because the application is open), and when I right click, it gives me the option to close all windows. With Firefox, this also used to be the case, but since the update, when I right -click on the open Firefox in the taskbar, nothing happens. And when I tried to "pin" Firefox to the taskbar, even then, I cannot close all open windows just by right-clicking, and it is a longer procedure to open a new Firefox window. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated....

I have tried to deal with the googlemaps " still loading...." issue in config as google suggests - but this hasn't worked either. In config --- permissions.default.image ---It says default in is 0 but that isn't the case either as my line shows 1 as default. Neither setting solves the problem.

Customizing toolbars breaks bookmark properties window...

When I right-click a bookmark in the Bookmarks menu and select "Properties," nothing happens. The window where I could normally edit the bookmark's name and the like does not appear.

I've tried resetting Firefox using the "Help > Troubleshooting Information" page, and this fixed the problem -- however, the problem now re-appears every time I try to customize my toolbars (specifically, by moving the "Home" button to the left of the address bar from its default position on the right). I've tried this a couple of times: every time I reset Firefox, the problem goes away and the bookmark properties window appears as normal; but then as I start getting my settings back to how they were before the reset (trying to bring up the bookmark properties every step of the way to see if it still works), it's after I customize my toolbars that it stop working.

I don't have any add-ons enabled, and the only plug-ins I have are the ones that were installed by default. I am using Firefox 16.0.1 on Windows XP, and in a new (limited) account I just created on this old computer (so most of my settings are still whatever they are by default). I've never encountered this problem before.

The obvious work-around is just to not customize my tool bars, or to use the "Show All Bookmarks" Library window (which still works fine) to edit my bookmarks' properties, but I really wish that I could both customize my toolbars and have the bookmark properties accessible from the menu. :( Any advice or help would be very appreciated.

while a search for just about anything, brings millions of results. when you decide to select anyone of them, it will take you to a preset, based on Google having found your whereabouts. for example I live in London Ontario, my ISP is in Kitchener ONT. when I browse on Google and find where I want to go, I am automatically sent to something near me as a posed to where I want to go. it is as if they know where I am but not where I want to go? I want to stop this from happening. example GNC in the USA, I try to log on and I am diverted to GNC Canada, can't stop it.
