my plug-ins are (version number): 2007 MS Office system (12.0.4518.1014), Bio3D (12.0.0.733) - this comes with ChemDraw i think, ChemDraw (12.0.0.733), getPlusPlus for Adobe 16287 (1.6.2.87), Java Deployment Toolkit (6.0.210.6), Java(TM) Platform SE 6 U21 (6.0.210.6), MS Office Live Plug-in for FF (2.0.4024.1), MS (R) WMP FF plug-in (1.0.0.8), Mozilla Default Plug-in (1.0.0.15), Novell iPrint Plug-in (5.3.0.0), Novell iPrint Scriptable Plug-in 1.0 (5.3.0.0), Quicktime P-in (7.6.6.0), Shockwave Flash (10.1.53.64), Silverlight P-in (4.0.50524.0), Windows Presentation Foundation (3.5.30729.1). Ive been on numerous fix-it sites but cant find a solution i understand or can get to work. the problem still occurs in safe mode and with only shockwave flash enabled (this seems to be the issue) and after numerous reinstalls, i have also deleted all i can find of adobe and shockwave then reinstalled to no avail :(

I went through the features and add-ons available with recent (approx. 1 month ago) UPDATE of Firefox. One thing I chose was a gimmick that adds color and graphics to (I believe) the SHELL of all pages. I don't really like it: find it too hard to read my tool bar and other info at top. I want to REMOVE THIS and have STANDARD SHELL. I can find NOTHING within my preferences that will lead me to the (NO idea what it is called) add-on involved. I want to know HOW TO FIND IT and HOW to REMOVE IT. Thanks!!

I just updated to Firefox 3.6.8

In 3.6.4, when I opened a new tab by clicking on a link, the tab would open to the far right of the tab bar. Now it opens a new tab directly to the tab I currently have open.

Is there an option where I can change this back to when it opened the new tab to the far right?

I have nero backup set for incremental backup at 1330 hrs weekly/sturday. After the backup Firefox report "Download Sort" and forecastbar as incompatible, where they were originally reported as compatible. Had to install roboform twice as site for downloading update was not up to date itself. This may have been part of issue as FF is sensitive to how may remove/installs it does in a session.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== After install of Roboform upgrade and remove reinstall because of wrong version.
