I had had WOT installed for a couple of yrs. and I had no problems with it and depended on it to help me from going to nefarious sites. Then one day I received on screen that my homepage was a disreputable site. So, I deleted it. This morning I decided to install it again to see what would happen and indeed when I went to my home page, I received the warning that this was a disreputable site. Again, I deleted it but I certainly do miss it.

I have had few problems with Firefox which I have been using since I first had a computer...just a few minor things which were easily sorted out. Since I downloaded Firefox 9.0.1, I have about 3 to 5 minutes to enjoy it before it crashes. I restart over and over and the same thing happens. Sadly, I am forced to use Chrome for now and want my Firefox back. I hope you can help.

I think I have asked the question as best I can. On Internet Explorer, I could click on the lower right and change from 100% to 150%.

Given my eyesight, this change would be enormously helpful.

I have tried right clicking on the Bookmarks listing on the left, but no menu appears. I don't need or want two Bookmarks lists, and I prefer to use the one on the right that only shows when I click on it. The new one is empty (no Bookmarks saved), but that empty column takes up space I don't want wasted!

When I click on feedback (either happy or sad), Firefox brings me to a page that says, "Oh! So, you want to offer us feedback on the next version of Firefox. Thank you, but you'll need to be a part of our Beta Program," (https://input.mozilla.com/download). I also tried uninstalling the beta and reinstalling it, but I received the same message.

To join, simply go to our download page and get the latest Firefox Beta!
