I have keyword.URL set to http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&btnI=I'm%20Feeling%20Lucky&q=

However, when I type 'foo' into my address bar, it tries to take me to http://foo/ instead of executing a google search for foo and taking me to the first hit, which is what I was expecting. I end up seeing a message from my ISP that the site does not exist. Anyone know how to fix this? Google only seems to turn up advice on changing keyword.url, with nothing on forcing firefox to obey keyword.url.

I click on the bookmarks button on the Firefox browser and the folders that hold the bookmarks are not in any particular order. I would like the folders to be in alphabetical order when I see them...when I click on the bookmarks button at the top of the browser. When I go to organize bookmarks I can sort them so they are in alphabetical order, but they do not show up that way when you just click on the bookmark button to get to your bookmarks. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

Currently, Firefox 3.0.11 is installed; not sure why newer versions have not been installed but finally decided to download the latest version on my (home) MacBookPro (Mac OS X 10.6.5). When I try to drag the icon to my Applications folder and click "replace", I get the message:

The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items.

I am the owner and only user. Help!

For 2-3 weeks bookmark file cannot be added to although it still exists. It happened about the time the Google etc option was added at the right top. For a couple of weeks a small subset of bookmarks with stars has been offered but until yesterday nothing under the bookmarks dropdown menu. Yesterday 3 random bookmarks from the main file suddenly appeared for the first time in this drop down menu. I have tried all the suggested options to correct bookmark problems. I do not have any of the rogue addons or Norton. I use Zonealarm extreme.
