I have recently decided to take the plunge and have installed two addons but, unfortunately, I can't find one of them on my Firefox's Toolbars, including the addon bar. I thought they would both automatically be added to one or another of the bars. One is on my addon bar but the other is missing although, according to the Addons Manager, it is enabled. Is there something I have to do to be able to add this to either one of my Toolbars, or the addon bar? I use Windows 7 and Firefox 9.0.1

I am a senior citizen with little computer knowledge. I cannot cope with changes to my home page because I do not have the knowledge/skills to undo the changes your program has installed. AT&T is my Internet Service Provider. Firefox is my browser. Right? When I installed the newer version of Firefox it usurped my AT&T Yahoo Home Page and Task Bar. I want my old home page and task bar back. I used system recovery to go back a couple hrs. prior to when the new Fire Fox was installed and lost Firefox & At&T. Was in a great state of frustration when I couldn't get system recovery up after going to control panel. System recovery finally popped up again and I went forward to after installation of new Fire Fox and have system up again. I am unable to read up on new Fire Fox program now. All I want is my old AT&T Yahoo Home Page back with their Task Bar. I can learn new Fire Fox as time permits. For a non-profit organization I find Fire Fox quite aggressive. That is good when mobilizing us to write or call Congress but not to take over my Home Page. Will have to admit new Fire Fox sure is faster. I do want to commend you for taking a stand against what Congress is trying to do and also for your non-intrusive, not obnoxious way of asking for donations. You help inform us and let us know of your need and anyone that is not a free loader with a conscience, I think, would make a donation according to what one can afford. Keep up the good work and the good fight..........please do help me restore my home page back to AT&T with the old task bar. I appreciate all the help you can give me. Please excuse this long note. Blessings, Helen Added Note: AT&T home page returned. Still need Tool Bar. Troubleshooting information from Firefox help for Tool Bar below. Also info to restore Refresh and Home icon below.

Hello fellow Firefox users!

For most of us, Firefox suffers from an insane memory leak, this can cause slow-down, and maybe even crashes. This happens mainly because when you close tabs, the RAM they took is still taxing your computer. That among other things cause this annoying leakage.

-SOLUTION- I recently switched to Firefox, and has this leak. I would not put up with it, so I set out for solutions. Here is what I came up with.

Some add-ons I've handpicked, that when combined, are extremely effective.

RAMBack https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ramback/?src=ss

MemoryFox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/memory-fox/?src=search

MemoryRestart 1.1 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/memory-restart/?src=ss

-ALSO- Firefox acting slow? Try these great add-ons!

SpeedFox 0.9.11 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/speedfox/?src=search

DownThemAll https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/?src=search ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Get all of those together, and make a leak free, and faster Firefox!

Simple problem: 1. Enter a term for Google to search for (either using the installed Google toolbar or via their landing page). 2. Results are returned correctly. 3. However, returned links will not open up in the same search result tab, or within a new tab or new window. 4. Selecting the link in the search results tab does nothing. Firefox appears to make a momentary load attempt before remaining at the same location. 5. Launching the link in a new tab/window returns a long-string Google prefix-based (i.e. www.google...) address in the navigation window of a blank tab/window. 6. Web addresses returned from the search can be copied and pasted into new tabs/windows to load without issue. Normal Google search process using this query works from IE every time.

Test: "Energizer Bunny" Returned Link: www.energizer.com/energizer-bunny/pages/bunny-center.aspx Failed Address: http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=energizer%20bunny&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CDYQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.energizer.com%2Fenergizer-bunny%2Fpages%2Fbunny-center.aspx&ei=ruYyT47cIYHjiALj69XGCg&usg=AFQjCNHg-eabuCQBx6Bv36V9F4pN4tQRYA&cad=rja

Be advised this is not the Google redirect problem that many users have encountered but something different.

the tabs recede into the top of the screen, along with the toolbar. sometimes, when I move the mouse up to the top, the tabs and toolbar reappear, but sometimes it gets stuck and I am stuck without the toolbar. I can only navigate from the page I am on. I am not the most computer savvy but I am good at following directions! so if you could instruct me how to adjust the settings so the tabs and toolbar remain permanently at the top of the screen, I would really appreciate it, thank you.

I am using firefox as it came (without making any changes). I have no add ons' either. Web pages are incomplete.(1) Specially where photos are concerned, only some of them appear and the rest are blank. The blank ones display the text only, that come at the bottom of the photo. (2) Sometimes all photos in the web page are missing but the text under each photo appears! (3) When using e-mail, the font tool bar is a ribbon of blank boxes, with the symbols (for 'underline', 'bold' etc) all missing. Some other boxes on the e-mail page, like 'delete' 'spam' etc are empty boxes with the words inside them missing. This is severely restricting my use of Firefox which is my favorite one. Anxiously awaiting advice. - Regards---- (4) I just noticed this. Even here on this very page that I am posting this question, right above where I am typing, the font tool bar is blank (completely empty). When I hover the mouse pointer in that empty space above this box, screen tips (such as 'bold', 'italic' etc.) appear next to the mouse pointer. When the pointer is moved away from the empty area on top of the box, where the font tool bar usually is, the screen tips disappear. This happens on the e-mail pages as well. (5) In the text that often appear on the left or right of a web page, as you see on the right of this question box, the lines overlap on top of one another. Only part of the message can be read.
