Every time I log on, I get repeated error messages -

"what happened:TypeError: Components.classes['@mozilla.org/extensions/manager;1'] is undefined

I've tried deleting then reinstalling Firefox, and even bought a SpeedMaxPC thing which is meant to clean up my register (whatever that is) but the error messages continue.

Thanks for any assistance.

I am using Firefox for many years, I never use internet explore, I have a new laptop with windows7, and old big PC with windows xp, on both computers I installed Firefox, the problem is I cannot bring bookmarks from my old computer (it was very easy to bring them from windows xp to windows xp, or from windows 98 to windows xp, but it seams impossible to bring them from windows xp to windows7, and no instruction from Firefox. If somebody is using Firefox for many years, doesn't keep bookmarks on internet explorer, please give an instruction how to bring bookmarks from Firefox on windows xp to Firefox on windows 7.

Let's say you frequently visit a webpage, such as an online dictionary. You type the unknown word in a textbox, get the translation, and forget it immediately :-)

After a few days you decide to create a list from the unknown words you've searched recently. You go to that webpage, and click the 'suggestions' (previous search queries) one by one in the dropdown list.

Now, is there a way to do this less painful? Like a tool, addon, whatever to export past search entries from a particular text field. It would really be helpful.
