I recently gave in and upgraded to the latest Firefox (3.6.3 specifically) after ages stubbornly sticking to Firefox 3.0. All in all upgrade has gone well. However, lately I find that the history button next to the url bar randomly disappears. It's easily restored by clicking "customize" on the navigation bar, but the fact this happens every few days has me somewhat flummoxed. Anyone have any ideas why this would be happening?

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

OK, we're all about Open Source. We're about non-profit.

Why then are we posting on Twitter and Facebook? I know Facebook is pretty big and "down with the kids" but Twitter is just hype; and commercial at that.

It's sending the WRONG message. Come on Mozilla, let's use a completely OPEN solution to micro-blogging and show the world that we support OPEN developers.

Not sure how often

As the title indicates, I believe that installing Firefox 3.6.8. messed up my favorite version of Firefox, version 1.5.0.3, or something like that on Windows XP SP3. I installed 3.6.8. to another folder, like I did a while back with 3.0.1, which is still on my computer, and thought it would function just the same and not enable my older version useless, but it seemingly has done so. I did not move any Firefox related folders prior to installation. Assuming you can see the picture that will hopefully work when viewed, you can see there's what looks to be an error message on the bottom. Also, you might notice that there is a lot of stuff missing, like the 'Go' button, search field, that circle with 8 smaller circles, and also all of the other stuff that should be there in the about:config. It's like it set itself for a larger resolution or something and I just can't get to what would normally be on the right side. The window doesn't get much larger than when its set at maximized. So almost all websites are not viewable because everything the site has is off screen to the right. I don't know what to do at this point, I tried searching for info but it's hard trying to figure out what exactly to search for. I uninstalled both versions, moved both mozilla folders in the application data folders to somewhere else, and then reinstalled my favorite version but the problem was still the same. Luckily I kept the old folders otherwise I would've lost my extensions(called add-ons now) and bookmarks. I'm aware that the obvious option is to just use the newer ones, but I've grown accustomed to that version and I like how simple it looks. I'm hoping it's an easy fix, haha. If it is a matter of my version being just too old and nobody knows anything about it anymore, then I'm fine with that. But, if someone could help me out here I'd greatly appreciate it. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=fcjh8i" target="_blank">Image and video hosting by TinyPic</a>

On some sites that have been used before I suddenly cannot enter data into some fiels. Its like they are protected. Typically this is the numerics of a banking transaction, like credit card or security code data. No the Num Lock is not off!

Have anyone else seen this?

IS there a feature in Firefox to prevent access to certain input fields under certain conditions?
