Every single extension I have is broken. Uninstalling and re-installing doesn't work either. They say they'll be updated when Firefox is restarted, but I can't even open the preferences for each plug-in.

Not a solitary extension is working. Many of them say that they'll be updated when Firefox is restarted; some of them ostensibly appear to be working, but clicking on the 'preferences' button provokes no response. I have Firefox 3.6.13. I've tried uninstalling and then re-installing one of the extensions (Stumbleupon) but to no avail. Do I need to be re-installing Firefox here?

Since upgrading to Firefox 4: 1) I lost my bookmarks. 2) If I go into my profile, there are no backups since March 21st (when I upgraded), and if I try to restore my bookmarks from the backups in my profile, nothing happens (though if I look at the .json file in textedit, they are clearly there) 3) When I start to type in an address, Firefox no longer gives me a suggestion from my history, 4) (and possibly unrelatedly) If I navigate to a site, via a link, I often cannot navigate back (the back arrow turns grey). That is, Firefox loses the history.

I use the tags feature in the library window to help me search through hundreds of bookmarks. It is great and very useful. But I don't understand the point of also having a "keywords" field. It appears to me that the keywords are not searchable so why is the field there. Am I missing something? Thanks

I want to turn off the header that says firefox prevents opening new page. Others have asked and been answered to make a selection under "tools" to do this, but my version (3.6) does not have the same configuration under "tools" that previous questioners have been advised to use. I can only select web search, downlaods, set up synch, erros console, web console, page info, start private browing, clear recent history. Which one?

When I use Firefox (3.6.24) I get a page saying I need the newest version, 8.0. I download the new one, move the file from "Fetched files" and put it on my desk, where I open it. As I, in dialogue field, drag Firefoxsymbol over to Applications map, it says "You've got a more recent object, are you sure you want to replace it?"

Should I ignore that and go on with the installation? And what could be the newer object that's already there?
