my opening page only has Yahoo search with no other boxes. I can't go back to previous page or find a web site without going to the main site through Yahoo search. I thought it was a problem with Yahoo (it is my opening page) but they say it is Firefox.

I was trying to use "Find on this page." The only symbol at the lower left was an "X." So I clicked on it, and the task bar disappeared from Firefox 6. I'm not talking about the Windows 7 task bar. It's the Firefox task bar that's gone, and I don't know how to get it back.

In older versions of Firefox I could right click on a URL and then select "Open Link in new Window" and a new window would open to display the information. In newer versions, V5 or later, if I select "Open Link in New Tab" the new information will be displayed in a new tab, if I click on "Open Link in New Window" all I get is a new window with two blue bars across the top a "New Tab" and an empty window, no information is displayed.

When I ran Firefox the second time a tab containing the firefox plug-in assistant was on top. The first thing on that tab was to update the Adobe Flash player. I did this and during the installation Flash player required that I close Firefox. When I restarted Firefox the plugin assistant tab was not there.

I noticed that there were several plugins that needed to be updated. I would like to find that tab or the plug-in assistant.

Using Firefox for months with full page screen on my laptop when suddenly it changed to a split screen while I was on an AARP game site and it stays that way now - making it useless by cutting off pertinent info when I search for other sites. The left side stays on ther AARP site but the right moves to a new site as I browse.

How do I get rid of a "sidebar" (a extra tabless website on the left of the screen) which is still there after restarting Firefox and even cold booting the computer?

I opened a website from the Library without specifying "in a new tab". I expected it to overwrite the existing active tab. Instead it opened in a half-window on the left, without a tab and without any "Min/Max/Close" icons. I can't close it even by restarting Firefox or shutting down and starting the computer. It now shows up on every Firefox screen with every tab. I didn't note the address of the site meant to be overwritten but the offending site is https://servicing.capitalone.com/c1/login.aspx.
