I think this little strip is called the "Menu Bar". When I used Internet Explorer, "Favorites" was included in the bar & facilitated quickly moving to select websites from my list of Favorites. Also - when I'm in a Website that I want to add to my list of Favorites, How do I do so in Firefox. Last question - I'm not able to play videos that I find in email attachments or websites (usually news stories). The section of the screen where the video should appear is totally black.

Get this alert when I try to open new version Firefox I just downloaded. I trashed the old version and re-downloaded and installed new version. Alert meaage: Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.

Speedbit changed the homepage without giving me that option during the installation of Download Accelerator. It cannot be changed back again by using the options menu. When a new homepage is set, it just goes back to Speedbit when restarting Firefox. Removing all Speedbit software also had no effect. It's very irritating! Regards, Martin.

Much as I love Firefox, I'm not overly enamoured with the wee green progress bar that's integrated into the awesomebar in 5. As I have Status-4-Evar installed, I really don't need it, and I find it kinda ugly, to be honest.

Are there any plug-ins or preference options to make it go away, or am I stuck with it until my brain just learns to ignore it?

I am migrating from IE to Firefox. So far, I really like the overall look and feel of the interface, and I like the ability to create it to look and function the way I want it to.

I was hoping to be able to customize my bookmarks by creating my own Icon files as I have in Internet Explorer. For example, in IE I can right click on the bookmark in the Favorites toolbar, select Properties from the pop-up menu, then select the Change Icon button, and I can select any icon file which I have created. The graphic then appears in the bookmark. I love it! Can I do this in Firefox?

Thank you for any information, Joe
