This isn't really a question, but I hope it will help some people. I had the bing toolbar appear at the top of firefox, and I tried every suggestion I found to delete it, in addition to ways I already knew. Nothing worked...until I searched through tools/options and found my home page had been changed. I simply changed it back to what it was before bing took over. Now everything is back to normal.

Ever since my Hotmail account was upgraded to Outlook, the file attachment button doesn't work. The arrow doesn't even turn into a hand - it's as if Firefox doesn't even see it. It works fine in IE, but I prefer to use Firefox. I have seen various people offering solutions such as getting the latest version of Silverlight or disabling it, removing Adblocker and installing Webmail Adblocker instead. I have tried all these options and nothing works.

Surely this is an issue with Firefox that needs to be resolved. Until then I would like a work around solution.

Old tabs keep appearing above the location/address bar with the same old content in them even though I have tried everything to remove them.

How can I remove these old tabs with content I am not interested in?

I have a MacBook Pro and I have followed every instruction provided by Mozilla and from Google searches.

I really don't like the look-and-feel of the new pdf.js viewer. On my machine (6 yr old HP running Windows XP with sp 3) it displays slower than Acrobat Reader did, and I was perfectly happy with Acrobat Reader plugin. Frankly I want to disable pdf.js, but haven't been able to figure a way to do it. It doesn't display anywhere I could find on Add-ons Manager. I don't want to be compelled to use a feature that seems to be a performance detriment, at least for me. Mozilla, please rethink this!

When I try to access my gmail account, Firefox says "the page isn't redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept

   cookies."

I've tried removing cookies, preventing firefox from accepting cookies, and restarting Firefox in safe mode. The best I can get is the log in page, but once I enter my information, I get the same message again. Any suggestions?

I've tried everything, cannot determine how it got there, how to remove. It is impossible to work within a web site with this wide side bar covering at least 2-3 inches. Is it somehow connected to Conduit search engine?

Recently parts of the text but not all the text on a webpage has started to blur or distort. Sometimes this distortion moves to the right. If i hover my mouse over the distortion or scroll the page it disappears. This is especially annoying on Facebook ect. I have not noticed this problem in IE or Chome but i havn't used either for prolonged periods to be honest. It's hard to test what causes it because the problem is intermittent, Facebook is affected the worst but have had this problem on other websites including this form and even in the Addon menu.

I have tried, running in safe mode, disabling plugins and clearing the cache none of which have solved the problem.

here's a screenshot of the distortion: http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/2128/facebookblur.png

The space for the address bar is so large that the size of the 'Search' box (Google in my case) is tiny. How do I reduce the size of the web address box so that I can make the search address box bigger? Note: this is nothing to do with the toolbar or customising that - it is about customising the layout of the whole bar and changing the amount of space on the bar that each element takes.
