I used to be able to type a word in the location (or address) bar and I would get directed to the best website that google could think of. If I typed "dogs" in there and hit enter I would go to the dog page of wikipedia. If I type "hotmail", I'll get sent to hotmail.com. This is not happening anymore. Now I just get the google search results of the keyword I entered. I've tried going to about:config and making sure the keyword.url is at default and I've tried different things with the browser.fixup stuff, but nothing works. This all happened when I upgraded firefox too, so I think that is the problem. What can I do to fix it and get it back?

I look at a picture from a photo-site - size 11 MB. I decide to save this picture > right click > save image as.. The download window opens and FF downloads the picture once more which is already somewhere in FF's cache or memory.. I can see that data comes from the internet and not from a local place on my computer and the process can be rather slow, when the remote server is slow.. I find this as a waste of bandwidth.. Is it possible to avoid this behaviour?

Firefox 3.6 had a "Bookmark All Tabs" in the Bookmarks Pull down menu. How can I "Bookmark All Tabs" using Firefox 4.0.1

I recently updated to Firefox 4.0.1 from Firefox 3.6. Firefox 3.6 had a "Bookmark All Tabs" in the Bookmarks pull down menu. There isn't a "Bookmark All Tabs" in the Firefox 4.0.1 Bookmarks pull down menu. Has this feature been eliminated from Firefox 4.0.1? If I want to save 24 tabs in one window of Firefox and 14 tabs in another window of Firefox, do I have to save all the tabs individually? How can I set the options, preferences, etc. so that I can "Bookmark All Tabs" at once in a window of Firefox 4.0.1. I am running Firefox 4.0.1 on a desktop computer with Windows7 Professional OS with Firefox as my default browser.

In previeous firefox versions, next to the back button was a drop down arrow that allowed going back multiple pages. Where did it go?

In older firefox versions, there was a button that brought up a dropdown selection of the last 10 or so pages, but I can't figure out how to get it back in the new version. This is a problem because my school website uses a lot of ID-verification transition pages between links, so when I try to hit the back button, it sends me to the verification page and then right back to the page I was on, and there's no way to go back without opening up my history, something that can be a hassle if I'm looking at things in multiple tabs. Is there anything I can do?

Why is my FireFox windows always opening on monitor 1 when monitor 2 is set as the default?

I have a dual-monitor set-up on my PC. I have a 19" widescreen monitor which NVidia treats as Monitor 2, and a 17" non-widescreen monitor which NVidia treats as Monitor 1. Monitor 2 is set as the main monitor. Interestly enough, the set up was the same on Windows 7 32-bit which I had installed. 17" as M1, 19" as M2, 19" set as main monitor, yet FireFox opened properly on Monitor 2.

I'm clueless as to what is causing this...

I have a problem highlighting items on webpages (specifically text) to save as a file for printing. If I hold the left mouse button to highlight the text, the page doesn't auto scroll down to where text is off the screen. An example is here: http://sonalacant.blogspot.com/search/label/Agenda

Any ideas please as it means I have to go back to IE for certain pages??
