My bookmarks and ALL my history has disappeared. Some of my bookmarks I found in the tab, but not all of them. My history, however is completely gone. I'm quite annoyed by this, as I use my history often.

I have my settings to not fill in the URL bar when I type. Yet, when I type something, it's giving me a drop down of sites that match as I type. Why? And how do I get it to stop? It's really annoying.

Every time I run firefox (always from the command line; I don't run any GUI like Gnome or KDE), Firefox opens a window called "about:privatebrowsing" in addition to the window I asked for. How can I eliminate this window so that it never comes up without recompiling the whole program?

For the first time ever (after a few years of use) when I try to search for a word or phrase on the Net, I get a message (under a tab saying, "Error 403 (Forbidden)!!1") saying, "403 That's an error", followed by "Your client does not have permission to get URL", followed by a very long URL (well over 300 characters), and finally, "That's all we know."! This happens for any word or phrase input. However, if I type a URL (e.g., www.jajah.com) in the 'Search' box, I get the website without any trouble.

Every single website url address, or url address within a website page is being added to my location bar/address bar drop down menu.

I don't want everything added or saved in the location bar. Only urls that I used a lot used to be saved there but now every single url (and url within a url)I visit is being added to it.

How can I stop this? This just started happening.

I'm sure it's a simple browser setting but I've checked and nothing gives an option to control this.
