I have too many websites I visit daily! I like having them available at a single click on my bookmarks toolbar, but I'm trying to squeeze too many on there. Is there any way to stretch the toolbar vertically so I can get two lines of bookmarks on there? (Yes, I know, I can put them in the bookmarks dropdown, but that's too many clicks to get to the ones I use every day.)

It might have something to do with a change I made yesterday. I followed some instructions that said to go to TOOLS and click Clear Cache . Now there isn't a bar on top of my screen anymore to go back and click "tools" (or anything else). I went to Control Panel and did a "restore to earlier point" (restoring computer to an earlier date) but it did no good. What can I do to get things back?

Hello, When I used to type into the URL I would automatically get Google Search Results (if it was not a valid URL).

Now I get AltaVista Google Search Results.

I want to change this preference back, so that it goes to standard google search results again.

Anyone any idea how to do this ?

It happened when i installed AltaVista Toolbar, I have removed AltaVista toolbar, and the problem is still there. Also reinstalled FF, and still there. HELLLLLP !

I just switched to Firefox this morning but I have used it in the past. I have Yahoo set as my homepage and it opens fine when I start Firefox but if I type something in the search bar such as Walmart or ebay it will display the search results but when I click on the page I want to open, I get something like "nclk (GIF Image, 1x1 pixels)" on any of the webpages I have to choose from. If I put www.walmart.com in the address bar, it works fine. What do I need to do?
