I use the bookmarks sidebar and at some point, somehow, the bookmarks copied or replicated themselves below the current list. So now my bookmarks list is twice as long as it should be. Please tell me how I might have done that and how I can undo it without losing any bookmarks. Thank you!

How to remove StopBadware

I've noticed a few websites I try to visit being blocked. StopBadware does not give details on what "badware" was found, when, or offer any proof that anything was found at any time. They're anonymous, untouchable, and just say, "Trust us, don't visit this site". In our courts, the accused are allowed to face their accuser, but not in the court of the internet apparently.

Basically it is just a vigilante organization (funded by George Soros) that seeks to "protect people". Too much autonomy, not NEARLY enough transparency, and no accountability at all.

If they wanted to help, they'd report the "badware" to a consortium of anti-virus companies. This would help anti-virus software adapt to threats, and give consumers a way to know which were doing it most effectively. Also, the person browsing the "suspected" site should be told what the badware was, if it was reported by one or more individuals, or by a scan, what the rate of false positive reports are for that scan, and what is known about the badware in terms of impact. If coordinated with the above effort, a list of anti-virus titles that claims to address the badware should be available.

I understand why Mozilla would want to utilize a system that does what StopBadware claims is it's mission, but making it mandatory is a really bad idea in light of the potential negative impact and potential for abuse or misuse.

How do I remove/stop it, or failing that, does anyone have a good browser recommendation? Hopefully one that has not chosen such a "Big Brother" ham-handed approach.

Also, is there a list of all the sites StopBadware is blocking? I'd like to run Returnil and go looking for all the info George is afraid of.

I wanted to block some images on eBay, and naturally blocking ones I hated ended up blocking others I needed!

On Ebay, top right, the SELL icon. I hit SELL ITEM and where the blue SELL IT and green SELL YOUR ITEM should be, there's nothing. Everything else on the page is viewable. When I try to sell an item, the all important icon to click and put the auction live is missing. I uninstalled the blocker Addons, cleared the cache, but my browser still acts as if it should block those images.

Would moving up to Firefox 4.0 help? I really don't want more aggravation with learning a new version that apparently has major bugs (involving seeing the bookmark icon) etc. I just have no idea what's continuing to block certain images.

I blocked that obnoxious Kindle ad on the opening page of Amazon.com, and that's STILL blocked, too. Seems like the addon for removing images is still working even after it's been uninstalled.

The right-click shortcut letters for my Bookmarks Toolbar (T for New Tab, D for Delete, etc) have changed as of a couple days ago - How do I revert them back?

This only changed in the past couple days, I had not changed anything in terms of installations, extensions, etc...

Right now Tabs open with W (which used to open in a Window), and T deletes (which used to be New Tab)....but D also deletes, so that's odd...
