I am not tech literate. Sorry. But when i last updated Mozilla it eliminated my AOL (America On Line) toolbar. This toolbar had the locations of all my favorite places...bank, grocery store. etc. As a fix, I decided to try to use a toolbar I already have but rarely use. Cannot find instructions on how to customize the toolbar (take off all the unused buttons and add the ones I use a lot). I don't even know the name of this pre existing toolbar. It has a "Most visited" icon first.

Can someone tell me what this old toolbar is and tell me how to reconfigure so that it is able to take over for my very, VERY useful America On Line (AOL) toolbar?

after I updated windows10 to build.10568, firefox add-ons are removed themselves everytime I reboot my pc.

this never happened for several years since I started using firefox. (from win7, 8.1 to 10, on 4 different PCs)

I tried turning on w10's administrator account, formatting system partition and clean installing the OS, using latest beta version of firefox.

Nothing changed.

is there any clue?

Nowadays, a news video palyed often ushers in a whole string of other undesired videos. When my cursor hovered over that video window, aBlock sign appear on the top right-hand corner. I clicked on it, thinking that it would block the sream of videos. Instead, that had stopped ALL video AND audio play I can get from the BBC website. How can I unblock this?

Since downloading Windows 10 on my Dell desktop, I keep getting updates notices pushing in from the bottom right of the screen. Each of these notices states "Unknown Application" or something like that. It then goes on to name the "unknown", which usually means nothing to me so I hit the 'allow' button, just in case it is required to run my computer.

Today, as I was loading up a program that I downloaded yesterday and it worked yesterday, one of those "unknowns" appeared and it read 'pluginscontainer.exe'. I blocked it unintentionally and since then, that program won't load. Each time I try, I get the message "Pluginscontainer.exe" tried to load but has been blocked.

Can anyone tell me please, how to unblock it? Oh! My security system is Panda but I can't find any way to track it down on Panda. Sincerely, Maxwellme.

I need to unblock a Java add on that Firefox has blocked but there is no 'Enable' setting or option for me to choose whether to block or unblock it. Java is used by my company and blocking it is not an option.

Honestly I'm not that happy with Mozilla/Firefox about this in general, It's MY computer I get to decide what I run and don't run. Firefox not having the option for me to say 'Okay, you don't like it but I do so we're going to do it' is a major failure.

So I updated to FF 43, and all of my tabs are gone. Some of them were old, trusted friends of mine, and I'd like to have them back.

There's a directory that got created on my desktop that says Old Firefox Data, and there's a sessionstore.bak in there that might have my stuff in it. I closed FF, renamed it to .js and restarted FF, but no luck. Of course, I then realized that I was in aforementioned Old Firefox Data directory, and not the actual Firefox directory.

Navigating to -that- directory, I don't see a sessionstore.js in there at all.

Firefox 43 no longer uses my browsing history to suggest my frequently visited sites in the URL bar. Do I have to use a search engine?

I have just downloaded firefox 43. In the past, I could visit many of my favorite sites by simply typing a few of the first words. For example, by typing the letters "sl" firefox would immediate suggest slashdot.org and I could simply press the right key and type enter. But it seems the update to firefox 43 wiped out this functionality (or worse, my browsing history). Is there a way to restore the old behavior? This really sucks. I don't want to type the whole site name every time...

Thanks,

Dimitri
