Transferred Firefox and other programs to new computer; however, my Google toolbar (especially bookmarks of concern) did not transfer. I downloaded it again (more than once); it shows up on my Tools/Addo-ons as enabled but does not show up on the View/Toolbar section (never since new computer). I uninstalled and reinstalled, but no luck. What now?

Dialog box overlap, as this at some sites overlaps the "ask this box" which is then obscured. Same site with IE doesn't do this.

Windows 7, wide screen monitor, script overlap as well in some areas. Font size has no effect. As an example on the Netflix site the the box which allows a choice of DVD or Bluray overlaps the remove X line. As far a script its as if the line space between two lines is halved.

Comcast, my ISP, switched me from McAfee to Norton a few weeks ago. Ever since, Firefox is much slower, impossibly so with sites that use Flash and/or launch a new browser window (including using Control-N in Firefox menu). It LITERALLY takes 5 whole minutes for the new window or Flash dialog box to appear after clicking. This does not happen when using IE (which I hate to use, but have had to return to).
