I have been using the all-in-one sidebar extension, it worked until FF5.0. But after updating to 6.0 today, I don't even see the option of turning on a sidebar, be it all-in-one or just the out of the box unextended one. What has happened?

in previous versions of firefox (I'm currently on beta 6.0) you could search for add-on updates... this seems to be no longer possible. Where can I look for the newest updates to my add-ons?

I saw that you can right-click on each add-on in the add-on manager to search for an update on that specific item, but not search for updates on all as pre- 4? (at least … (read more)

In options, if I check the box "Open pop-ups in a new tab" nothing happens when I click the link. If I uncheck the box, clicking the link takes me to a new Firefox window directly to the page. If I click the same link in Chrome or IE9 I get a jscript window that asks me a question before taking me to the page.

Question How do I tell what version (update / release level) of version 6 has been applied to my system? I have applied several different release levels to version 6 of FF but all the about feature tells me is Version 6.0. no version! This seems to be a change in the way updates are handled. Is that a bending because of the speed of which you're pushing out updates and new releases? contact me if you need something more

It keeps showing up with the Firefox search engine. I have done the Manage Search engines and it refuses to stay the same. I don't want Firefox as my default search engine. I even remove the Firefox search engine and it comes right back when I restart.

I searched and tried several things including that config suggestion and nothing works.

To be clear this is the for the search engine in the search bar NOT homepage.

Running Firefox 6. Randomly when I search from the search box I am redirected to Bing.

I do not have Bing installed, Google is my default search engine. I have removed Yahoo and Bing as my fallback engines in about:config.

Help appreciated as Firefox is my main development tool and this problem is making it problematic for me to use.

I have a USB CAC Card reader and ActivClient 6.2 software. However, I am unable to add my cac card reader as a module to Firefox despite me being able to do so in 4.

I'm currently on FF6, just upgrading from 5 as I thought 6 might of fix the problem. (Obviously I'm wrong.)

I've tried looking up information about the "Unable to add module" error, but most of the search results bring up solutions for open source software on various Unix OSes.

The most relevant information that deals with Windows and ActivClient is around 11 months old and I've already tried to follow that, only to see it not work either.

Help? I kinda want/need to access websites.

I have always loved Firefox. As a web designer and developer, FF has proven to be my favorite browser time and time again; however, ever since I upgraded to the newest version of FF 6.0-beta, all background images on my html files saved on my PC display much, much, much darker than they really are. IE displays them normal and this is the first time I have ever had trouble with FF and not IE. Please address. Also, FF has also been adding in random borders around anchors when I hover over them.

In v3.X... you could get to prior pages viewed on a site/tab by clicking an arrow that was part of the Forward/Back navigation arrows. Clicking the arrow gave you a drop down list of the prior pages you had viewed (from that tab). That feature is missing in v6.0. Any way to get this back?
