After installing Firefox 5, the bookmarks pull-down window has changed. First, the area to the right of the file name is extremely wide. Second, when clicking on a filename including bookmark links, the screen listing bookmarks covers the filenames, thus making it impossible to simply scroll back to the filename list.

Hi,

When searching with the Google Search Bar in the upper right hand corner of the browser, and the Location Bar my search results appear up on the "www.google.co.il" website. I would like this to default to either Google.com, or Google.co.zm [Zambian site].

I have completely uninstall Firefox 4 and upgraded to Firefox 5 losing all of my bookmarks and customizations, with no luck. The 'Bing', 'Yahoo' and other engines work fine, so I presume its a setting that was changed and not a virus [also because it takes me to an official Google page]. Also, my homepage searches work as they should.

I believe the page it brings me to is Google in Israel, I am currently living in Zambia, Africa and on occasion the web service is bounced through Middle Eastern providers, so that may be a clue.

Understand that I am not extremely technical on a computer [I can hold my own BUT I'm sure I can really screw it up if I wanted] so if I need to adjust host files [or something] I will need and appreciate step by step instructions. I am on a HP laptop using Windows 7 [64bit].

Thanks in advance, I am really at a loss.

When I go to upromise.com, I should be able to link to other websites through their site, in order to get the reward points with my upromise mastercard. Since I updated to Firefox 5, it won't work. It worked fine before the update. I turned off the firewall of Verizon Internet Security Suite, but that didn't help. I was able to link through upromise.com if I used IE instead of Firefox. I turned off everything in Verizon Internet Security Suite, but I still couldn't access websites through upromise.com. How do I figure out what is blocking access to websites through upromise.com?

I somehow changed the preferences to firefox not automatically allowing a page to automatically redirecting. I can't find where I did that to undo it. there is not a choice of options in the Tools menu and I have checked everything I can think of in Preferences. I'm feeling really dumb since I made the change this morning and I can't for the life of me figure out what I did. I know this is probably simple, but it is eluding me completely.
