I have closed the toolbars and navigation bar by mistake and do not see any way to re-open them. I have absolutely nothing at the top of the page except the blue mozilla border. HELP!!

The Mozilla help refers to the tool bars to reset the tool bars. I dont see anything and cannot find anything by right clicking anywhere on the page.

For many months on one of my computers when I'm trying to connect to: https://hitslink.com/logincheck.aspx I've got that strange message "This Connection is Untrusted" While I managed to add this exception permanently on some computers, it is impossible on one of them. Why? Every time I'm connecting to this website, I have to add the exception again and again.

I switched from a PC to an iMac almost a year ago, and continued to use Firefox as my browser. Initially, it all seemed to work as expected. After awhile, though, I found that website usernames/account names were no longer being saved. For example, my wife and I do online banking. Our bank's login page allows us to ask it to remember our account number, and an associated name. In the past, we could toggle between the two accounts, provide the appropriate password, and be logged in to the appropriate account. I've tried just about everything I can think of. Most of the support topics related to this focus on having Firefox save passwords. I don't want this, just for usernames and accounts to be remembered. Any help would be great!

There are two problems: scrolling behaves this way whether or not I check the various options that are available. Also on some pages there now appears an annoying vertical blinking line next to areas selected with the mouse. Others have told me this is a Firefox-specific problem; is there a fix?

Because of an error on my hard drive I had to switch to a copy of Windows on a different partition. I can access the partition containing the original copy of Windows. Are there files that contain bookmark information and Firefox GUI setup information that I can copy to my new installation of Firefox on the new partition so the new installation will be customized like the old?

I tried to delete all cookies using Tools->Options->Show Cookies->Remove All Cookies. But all deleted cookies keep coming back after few seconds. I suspect there is a malware doing this. I run into this problem in the past. It was caused by an AddOn called something like * xg.dll by Relevant Knowledge. When this add-on was removed the problem went away. But now, it comes back again.

(Latest) Firefox gets berserk when using Java applet to upload videos on YouTube

Whenever I use YouTube's Java applet for uploading videos to Youtube, Firefox goes berserk - CPU usage max (I have a 3.2GHz CPU!!), Firefox gets unstable and hangs a lot and it won't be possible to do anything with Firefox anymore until I quit the page that has that java applet.

I don't know if it's a Firefox's personal issue with Java or is it caused by an Add-On.. Is there a "Add-On Task Manager" for Firefox or something like that? Where I can see which Add-On(s) starts eating up CPU, when Java app at YT is started?

I left Firefox to upload videos and I went to sleep. When I came back CPU usage was still at max. I wanted to browse the web and I though that hanging problem affected only the page with Java app, so I opened another Firefox client. But that one lagged too of course and when I closed IT, the first FF, which was uploading to YT closed too - it crashed, silently. Restarted FF and it came up with a message, that recovery was not possible due to corrupted recovery data.

I got pissed off and I got myself Google Chrome again - It has no issues with YT's Java video uploader applet at all and CPU usage is also nonexistent.
