When I click the Home button, FF 3.6.6 opens it in a new tab, but also opens a new tab continuously searching for server at 10.0.0.4, which of course does not exist! Even whenever I open FF , it always starts automatically looking for server 10.0.0.4, and also opens my Home Page in a new tab.

I want Firefox and Mozilla(I really don't know the difference) to have it so that what's in title in the menu bar can have things added and taken out if we want to. Like right now for what ever reason I now how something called "Manage Content Plug-ins" under Tools, and I don't want it there, it's wasted space and I don't want it there. This feature would be neat because then we could take out things we don't want in the menu so it takes less time to get to what we want.

I am not saying to make it so that this feature would allow people to delete things under the menu, just so that things can be hidden if we want.

I just installed Linus Freespire on a PC that Windows XP had crashed on, and happy to have it take on a new life. When I tried to browse myspace.com, I was forced to upgrade to Firefox 3.6 and downloaded it. It said it went to the desktop, but don't see it there. Instead I get a KArchiver window with Firefox-3.6.6.tar-1 in it. I have tried screwing around with it and its "wizard" until I am about ready to trash the whole thing. Can someone tell me what i need to do to upgrade Firefox 2.0.0.6 to Firefox 3.6.6 besides getting another degree? It would be nice if there where some hints.

Not sure how often

Firefox is set to "NEVER REMEMBER HISTORY" but if I go to Ford.ca, which uses java, I must enter a postal code to have access to information about "Price & Build". Said postal code remains accessible by Ford.ca... even days after my visit, while I understand that "Private Browsing" should supposedly prevent such situation. Firefox 3.6.6-1.2 came with the newest openSuse 11.3 release. The same situation prevails with our other computer running under openSuse11.2 and daily kept up to date. A solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated!

Issue

I have a problem with my bookmarks, cookies, history or settings

Description

Recently installed Google Xmarks and immediately lost any star bookmark functionality. Any new bookmarks I try to create are given the title of the last previous webpage I tried to create (which wouldn"t be a major issue only a nuisance to copy & paste the correct name in) but ALL new bookmarks are directed to some version of "http://ad.yieldmanager.com/iframe3?sI" instead of the correct site. Have diablrd and then uninstalled Xmarks but the problem remains. Use the latest version of Firefox for Linux Ubuntu 9.04. Thanks.

[Apologies, I clicked the wrong URL and shut the previous thread by mistake.]

I have FF 3.6.6 randomly crashing when I am not even doing anything. I have two websites open normally, neither of them uses Flash or any adobe plug-ins. One auto-refreshes content every few minutes, but it is text and basic JPG/GIF graphics (run by JavaScript I presume). The other site does nothing if I take no actions. But several times a day, FF just shuts down silently.

I am running on linux Mint 9 KDE Edition.

about:crashes says the URL is invalid. ~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/ doesn't exist; ~/.mozilla/firefox/ contains a single file called .profiles.ini - nor could I find a folder by that name in any of the directories related to FireFox.

Installed Firefox 3.6.8, tried update first, then did complete uninstall and fresh install from scratch. Problems, problems...

Can not set Tools-Options, the page is blank with only CANCEL button active. Pages keep loading forever, tab page load indicator never stops. On first start, home is www.google.com, then it reverts to Firefox-Google home and search does not work at all. Will not let me connect to support.mozilla website either. Drives me crazy ! Thanks for help in advance.
