I lost my bookmarks in FF 3.6.3 on one computer. I was able to copy the places.squalite file and place it in a desktop folder of a new computer also using FF 3.6.3. I'm not sure how to import this file into the new FF. Can I go into the program files, rename the places.squalite file there as "old..."and substitute the copy I placed in the desktop folder? Or is there another way to salvage the info?

I'm a developer and I use Firefox as my primary browser. Since upgrading, I have to manually clear the cache every time I make a change to a stylesheet, some javascript - even html sometimes - before I see the change. I've set my offline storage to 0mb. Nothing seems to help.

I am using Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 on Vista Ultimate and the browser.tabs.tabMinWidth doesn't seem to work (have set it to 150). I've restarted the browser since setting this configuration, but that hasn't had any effect.

Has this setting been deprecated/removed in Firefox 4.0?

Firefox was started with command: firefox.exe -no-remote -P FF-4.0-B2

(note: I have hundreds of bookmarks) I search the word "idea" in the location bark (with prefs set as searching for Bookmarks) and only SOME of the bookmarks with "idea" in the name come up. I type "ideas" and they all disappear, even though there IS one with the word "ideas". This happens even in Safe Mode.

I was able to use firefox, but all my bookmarks and history disappeared. Also, the forward and back arrow and refresh buttons weren't working. I followed the directions for restoring firefox profiles, and that didn't work. I wasn't able to open firefox again, and I received the message: "a copy of firefox is already open. only one copy of firefox can be open at a time." I tried closing firefox, even uninstalling it and reinstalling another file, but I still get the same message over and over again.

I am an administrator for a small network (300 users) and am pushing out new images. Each user has their own log-in since I am using Active Directory. The problem is, I want to put Firefox on all of them and have AdBlock Plus & Adobe Flash to be added on when they log on with their profile for the first time and launch Firefox. Is there a way to have it set up through the default profile, so that it can be added each time a new profile is created on each individual machine instead of manually doing it?
