Right-click menu disappears in bookmarks toolbar folder

I'm using Firefox 3.6.3 and am experiencing a problem with the bookmarks toolbar (the bar directly below the address bar, not the bookmarks menu you get when you click on the "Display your bookmarks"-button). In the toolbar, I have added several bookmarks and when I right-click on those, the right-click menu appears, I can make a selection with my mouse and then left-click on the action I want to perform (e.g., Open, Open in a New Window, Open in a New Tab, et cetera).

However, in my bookmarks toolbar, I also have a folder with several subfolders and with bookmarks in those. When I left-click on the folder, I can navigate through the subfolders. I can also right-click on a bookmark in a subfolder, but when I then move my mouse, the right-click menu immediately disappears before I even have a chance to left-click on the action I want to perform.

I have noticed recently that Firefox is taking upwards of 20sec. to load pages and often cannot find the server(I have to reload the page). I did not realize how low it had gotten until I start using safari and it seemed so fast in comparison. Does anyone know what is going on? Also, I have read a DIY fix on another conversation which states to fix the problem "To disable OCSP go to about:config from firefox and change security.OCSP.enabled to be 0. " Is this the fix? and is it safe? Does mozilla field any of these questions or is it all user help?

My mouse wheel won't scroll in Firefox, but it works for every other program (including IE, don't make me go back to that!). I have downloaded the latest driver for my mouse and also tried changing the config in "mousewheel.withnokey". I never had this problem then suddenly it just happened, but only in Firefox. Any ideas?

I had no problems with Firefox on my dial-up system(my only option for internet access) until I updated my flash-player on April 30,2010. Since that date I have been having problems with loading anything on FireFox. It can take up to 20 min just to load Firefox Home Page. It takes close to an hour if it will load to bring up FaceBook and let's forget about any app on FB. they take in excess of 5 hours if Fire Fox does not crash while I am waiting on them to load. Can someone give advice on what I am to do to fix this problem

How to *permanently* disable Firefox Safe Mode option?

I use LeechBlock to limit my time usage for certain sites, but my self control is pathetic to the point where I automatically, and very quickly end up opening Firefox in safe mode (where LeechBlock is disabled, and all sites work). Thus I am wondering if there is a way to *permanently* disable the safe mode option in firefox. I know that in case something goes goofy with firefox, I will probably have to reinstall, but that isn't too big a deal because I backup my profile regularly.

Of course solving this won't 100% get me working, but it would definately make it a much bigger ordeal to bypass LeechBlock.

Thanks to anyone who can help me (except for hypnotists - I'm not at that point yet!)!

Before I start Fire Fox I open the Task Manager to make sure no other copies of Fire Fox are running. When I click on the short cut there is a pause of about 1 second then this message appears. "The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." I checked your FAQs where this problem showed up many times. I saw not solutions there. Where can I go to get an answer other than the usual remarks. Of course Fire Fox starts up immediately after the error message.
