Naturally I have pop-up blocker functional but there is a new and really, really annoying "coupon" pop-up that is always on Amazon but also on other sites. Close the coupon window and it pops up every time I navigate to look at any product. It really is bad and vexingly doesn't even offer anything that the Amazon template doesn't already offer ("free shipping" above a certain expenditure on some items etc.). It has a distinctive green border and appears on other sites as well. How did they get around your software? How can I make this stop?

This happens only when I use a shortcut to invoke Firefox. I am running Windows 7 professional. The Firefox window opens after the error message occurs, so I would classify this as an annoyance. Several help postings mention removing "ddeexec" from Firefox registry entries. This worked for a while (it seems to be related to Firefox updates) but now no longer works: ddeexec is removed but the error message still occurs.

I don't keep a lot of bookmarks, but the ones I do have stay well organized in the bookmarks toolbar. So, I'd like to hide the "Bookmarks" button that drops down my full bookmarks menu.

Unfortunately, that button seems to be part of the Bookmarks toolbar, not a separate button that can be customized. I go to customize toolbars and the only thing in that area is "Bookmarks toolbar items".

I like to put other stuff to the right of the bookmarks toolbar as well, so that button looks really out of place when it's right aligned like that.

edit: I misused the troubleshooting information field. Reading fail: Here's a screenshot of the button in action: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1190577/uselessButton.png

Here's a screenshot of the "Customize" dialog. Note that the entire hilighted part is treated as one movable object. That title, "Bookmarks Toolbar Items Bookmarks * Bookmarks" isn't the most readable either... http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1190577/customizeUI.png
