when using a web based mail server, in order to create a mail, or reply, firefox opens an additional window for the purpose. However, the window opens but with nothing present (i.e. no content, etc). How do I ensure that when this happens, the windoe opens correctly.

My computer running XP crashed, so I bought a new one (Win 7). Not a big deal, because I keep my data in an outboard drive and backup regularly.

I want to restore my Firefox bookmarks, which ought to be somewhere in my backup sets. Problem is, I don't know what to look for.

I've found a couple of files named Bookmarks.html, but when I look at them they contain only the basic bookmarks contained in a fresh Firefox installation.

I know my bookmarks are somewhere in my backup sets, but where?

What filenames do I need to look for?

Thanks!

I have Windows 7, 32 bit. My laptop has 2 GB RAM and an Core 2 Duo processor.

I was getting on fine with the last version of Firefox, but after upgrading to Firefox 4 today, my laptop's fan comes on just about every time I load a new page or open a new tab. Memory usage seems very high compared to what it was before, it's at around 250 MB right now with just two tabs open. I am thinking of going back to an older version, I'm just not happy about this.

I want so much to install Firefox 4 and when I get to the last box which says to choose 1 of 3 options, I don't know which one of the 3 options to choose because the 3 options are not defined. I don't know what each means so how am able to decide which one works for me!? 1 of the 3 optons says "save file" and the dot next to it is colored blue. I can't remember what the other 2 options are and I think you know what I am talking about. Thanks

This happened once before and I think it was right after an update. One day it worked, the next it didn't. I found out how to fix it but it's been so long I can't remember. I seem to remember having to change something in "settings" or something to that effect.
