Though the Help files says that the "Awesome Bar" uses Google search, it is actually using Bing. I want it to use Google. How can I change it. Please note that I am talking about the "Awesome Bar" a.k.a. Address bar - not the Search Bar. Thanks.

Strange BT Yahoo Mail problem. Mail displays erroneous numbers/letters. Headings switch around in left column.

When I open Bt Yahoo Mail the column on the left instead of having "Inbox" at the top of the column it will have "Drafts" when I hold my mouse over the "Drafts" it switches to "Inbox". The numbers of mail in these boxes changes in this way too. For example if it displays "Trash (6)" I hold my mouse over and the number will change to (3).

When I open mail parts of it can be switched around making it all a bit of a jumble. When I wobble my mouse over the text it reverts to how it should be.

When forwarding or replying to email numbers can get changed. For example today I was sending an email to ask about an order of printer inks. I wrote : 6 PI-PGI-9PBK and when I checked in my "Sent" folder the number had changed to : 3 PI-PGI-9PBK.........that is until I hold my mouse over and it changes back to 6! Obviously I worry that the correct number has not gone! I've tested for virus and malware and have reinstalled Firefox and Java and am now at a loss. This started from my previous version of Firefox into this new one. If I switch back to Bt Yahoo Classic Mail the problem goes away. It does not happen in Chrome or IExplorer but I want to use Firefox! Any ideas??

This just started with 20.0 (I believe). The menu bar text appears about 5 seconds after Firefox is opened. I am using two separate Firefox portable browsers and both have the same problem. I have tried disabling all add-ons and the problem persists. This happens randomly (but not often). See screenshot (if I can get it posted):

SVAR (The Swedish National Archive) demands a plugin, djVu, for viewing scanned documents. When it still refused to work after installing djVu it turns out that my webreader should work with 32-bit and my new pc is delivered with 64-bit Windows 8. Is there a way to shift between 32-bit and 64-bit Firefox?

Whenever my wifi goes down and the ATT notifier comes up, most of the icons on my tabs all change to the ATT blue ball -- I have emptied the cache, deleted history, etc., Even downloaded a couple of the Firefox (version 20.0.1) add-ons to try to resolve this issue to no avail. The Pinterest "pin it" tab on the favorites bar has NEVER shown, just an empty box - bit it had shown in previous versions of Firefox. I have had this problem in the past and found a successful fix; however, did not print it out and now can't find any solutions that have been successful. Drives me nutty!!! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!

Hello,

I'm currently running the latest version of Aurora and although I really like it, there's one thing that kind of annoys me. I'm often running more than 100 tabs at once, and searching all of them to find the desired tab takes a long time, therefore I'd love to use the 'Switch to tab' function, but more often than not, that option is very far down the list of suggestions, causing me to not notice them. So I'd like to know if it's possible to have this option display as one of the first suggestions, instead of putting in further down the list.

Thanks in advance,

I know how to set homepage correctly. I am an experienced user. My issue is when I start up Firefox 20.0.1 it always starts up two tabs. The first is the correct homepage. The second is a blank tab which it switches to. I only want the first tab which is the homepage. How do I stop the second tab from opening. The homepage is set only with one URL and is correct.

So I just bought a new computer, installed Windows 8 then installed Firefox. Upon loading it, this happens: http://imgur.com/BndEiGV I tried uninstalling then reinstalling and it didn't make any difference. I even tried to redownload it but still nothing. I just noticed that Firefox is not the only one affected, including some websites. Any feedback is appreciated :)
