There are a lot of answers out there about getting rid of the star button on the new bookmarks menu button, and I share their frustration. However, my complaint is that I don't like the star button being on the left of the dual button. Is there a way to swap the star button and the dropdown menu buttons? To clarify, I want to keep the dual button, but I want the dropdown menu button on the left, and the "Bookmark This Page" star button on the right.

Here is an image to also help clarify what I am looking to move.

I go to "Settings". On the "privacy" in "history" written "Firefox: will remember the story." Change to "Use custom settings ...". Click OK. Then again I go to "Settings". And, behold, there it is written: "Firefox: will remember the story," that is, the settings are not changed, even though I changed them. What am I doing wrong and how to fix it, please show me.

In Dailymotion, the thumbnails are blacked out even with the age gate off. I have tried all the fixes found here in the support, but none of them work. It all started with the last update of firefox, so I assume it has something to do with that. Dailymotion works fine in IE and other browsers. Firefox is the only one with the problem. I would like to get it resolved if anyone can help.

Last night I was installing a software and it tried to install SEVERAL viruses on my pc that I successfully managed to stop the installation. But I got another serious threat that I want to know whether it's still there and how can I get rid of it.

When I opened the software I was trying to install, it automatically opened a new tab on my Firefox opened window and in that same instant I knew something wrong was happening. The thing is that it loaded some pages in the same tab, using a full redirection so I couldn't go back to them and it ended in a modified Google (www.google.com/"something"). The thing is that I tried to go to the download page and Firefox started telling me THAT IT DIDN'T EXIST, then I knew something heavy was going on. I used the Reset tool (about:support) and parts of the virus got lost in the process. But the thing is that even when Firefox is set to start at https://www.google.com.uy or even when I put the blank page option for starting, it ALWAYS redirects me to the page of the virus ( http://www.istartsurf.com/?type=sc&ts=1412823435&from=sky&uid=WDCXWD5000AAKX-00ERMA0_WD-WCC2EHK4239242392 ) and if I then open another tab/window without closing the main, it justs do as I configured it (home: google, new page: blank).

Since I already reset Firefox, I want to know whether I should use another mechanism (likely deleting the entire ...\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla folder) or just reinstalling Firefox? I have already passes a full scan of my PC with AVG Internet Security 2015 (found 23 virus on the virus main folder and some Windows folders) and passed Ccleaner against every Firefox component.

If I forget about adding anything, please let me know.

How do I totally remove Shockwave Flash 15.0.0152. Using Ubuntu 12.04, FF 32.0.3. It seems that I have Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.406 installed also...How ???. When I disable SWF 15.xxx, it disables SWF 11.xxx also.

This was happening before I installed Chrome browser. Chrome is the only way I can use my computer without throwing thing about the room.

When I enable SWF 11.xxx, and leave SWF 15.xxx disabled, SWF turns on SWF 15.xxx. Seems these two versions are screwing up everything on my computer. Can't watch videos, FF goes gray screen and stuck, for 30 seconds, then recovers, then goes gray screen, then a message comes up "bad script -- Stop?", etc.,etc.

Lately when I am using T-bird email the screen goes gray and stops working.

Please help

Thanks SB
