The name of the line I am missing is the location bar, also called the URL bar or address bar. Firefox calls it the Awesome Bar.

When it disappeared the Bookmarks Toolbar took it's place completely. With the Bar I could see about 8 Bookmarks now I see 13. I'd really like that Awesome Bar back! … (read more)

Why do I have to use bookmarks to then move the URLS into my own created folders?? Why can't I just add the URL directly to my folder?

Here is my issue, I create folders on my bar to organize my sites - I can't find a way to directly add urls to my folders. Only way I see is: I first have to bookmark the site, then go into Bookmarks, then move the site into my folder. This is a waste of time to me and inefficient. I like FireFox but with Safari I can add the site directly into my folder. Why would I want to add more steps? Am I missing something?

I was just working on an eBay listing and I pressed the "delete" key when the cursor was not in a field and it made my browser go back a page. In doing this, I lost an ENTIRE LISTING WORTH OF WORK! This is such an annoying feature! I don't want my delete key to do anything except delete text. How can I disable this feature that makes the delete key perform the same function as the "back arrow". For example, if the cursor was out of this box right now and I pressed "delete" by accident, I would have to re-type all of this text! This is a stupid feature. Please tell me, how do I disable it?

I recently upgraded to Firefox 18 and when I go to make a new bookmark folder I can see it in the bookmarks menu under "show all bookmarks" but when I'm trying to bookmark a page while browsing the folders are not showing up in the pulldown menu on the "page bookmarked" window.

I can't use Choose to find the folders either

I can then go back and manually drag the pages over but that's annoying.

I am using Firefox for mac. On the navigation toolbar, on the right hand side, I now have 3 amazon buttons and 3 ebay buttons and they appear to be growing in number all of the time. I cannot figure out how to get them to disappear. If I get rid of the entire toolbar I lose the search and URL input fields. I right click them, no options, I don't see them under add ons or bookmarks or anywhere! I just want them to go away!!!!

For the last few days, I've been opening certain web pages and on that tab only, firefox will stop responding to any input. None of the links work, none of the keyboard shortcuts work (command-w, command-r), I can't select any text, and I can't right-click anywhere on the page.

I can still reload manually using the mouse and menu, and I can access other tabs that work just fine.

Often the page's load spinner will continue to spin even though the page has already loaded.

One site that is giving me this problem right this moment is: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/web-developer/versions/

But it's not limited to just mozilla's site. The jQuery API documentation site is also giving me the same problems.

I am using Mac OS X Version 10.7.4. I am also running Firefox version 14.0.1. I am prompted to update to version 15, but when trying to update, the updating window hangs up for hours and never gets past "connecting to server." I have tried to install version 15 and trash my last version however I get another pop-up box that states something like "cannot complete due to some items being skipped." I followed the directions to troubleshoot (File > Get Info, then make sure all items are unlocked) but this still doesn't solve my problem. Can anyone offer some advice? Please?

It really more of the formatting. It seems the pages have been coded wrong. Text does not fit into boxes for the text. Some items are behind others. Sometimes the text is huge. A lot of the time the text is squeezed together very closely in bold. The pages seem to work. I have enlarge and made small the pages, that does not correct the problem. I use FF on an iMac, but that is not the problem. This just started in the last couple of months. It does not affect the functioning of the software, just the visual presentation.

I attempted to install a media player the other day and it was crap and I started to feel sketchy about it, so I uninstalled it completely from my computer. But when returning to firefox I noticed that three new extensions had been added. I disabled all three, but only one had the option to remove it. The other two are still in my add-ons manager. They are not enabled, so not causing a problem (I hope), but would like to remove them. (GoPhotoIt is the main one I've read about all over the internet). I tried to follow the manual uninstall instructions, but there is no file in the extensions folder that matches the IDkeys listed in the "troubleshooting information" panel. (The same extenstions were on Chrome, but that was very easy to trash all three in, for some reason FF isn't making it so easy). (Notice: no "remove" option: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v55/xaraan/ScreenShot2013-02-24at102511AM_zps325da890.png)

After creating a new home network, we have experienced two problems.

    My HP Photosmart c410a prints emails in a very small font.  When I try going to File>Page Setup>Change Font, there is no Change Font option. 
    My wife has an identical printer.  When she prints text now, it comes up with whole sentences or paragraphs missing and when she prints photos, they come in in muddy streaks.
   We tried HP support and after 90 minutes, they say they can't reach their Mac department.
   Help warmly welcome.
