On Google, Ffox 3.6.12 only shows 10 results even when I specify 100; Mac G4 10.4.11; other browsers show 100 no problem.

On my Mac dual 1.25 GHz Power PC G4 with OS X 10.4.11 and Firefox 3.6.12, when I open Google and specify 100 results like this...

http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en&num=100

...it always just shows 10 results. Whereas Opera and Safari (I don't use Internet Extorter) show 100 results no problem using that same URL.

Problem has being occurring at least since Firefox 3.6.9 if I recall correctly. Not sure if it was happening before that.

When I updated from 3.6.11 to 3.6.12 this morning on my Mac OS X 10.4.11, none of my bookmarks were imported.

When I tried to use the restore option, it wouldn't work. I downloaded another 3.6.12 version thinking it may have had a glitch. It also didn't have my bookmarks and wouldn't restore them. In desperation I copied an 3.6.3 version of Firefox from an older Mac onto the one I'm using and was able to restore the bookmarks. However, I have to restore the same file twice before all the bookmarks are restored. But when I try to organize the bookmarks, none of them show up in the Library window. And if I close Firefox and restart it, all the bookmarks are lost and I have to restore them again. Even new bookmarks that I add in are lost on restart. Any suggestions?

Firefox is not loading banners/background images/various interactive buttons etc on all web sites: I'm using Firefox/3.6.12 on Mac OS 10.4.11 Other browsers are fine: ie Safari and Opera. Firefox is working fine on our PC. I have taken screen shots of Google home page and Firefox home page in Ff and Safari to illustrate this point and can email these to you so you can see what's happening. Ff was working fine yesterday.

Entering extra information as requested I've noticed that the Default Plugin is showing as disabled in the Technical info under the Trouble shooting menu but is showing as enabled in the plugins list in the Ff drop down.

Using Mac PowerBook G4 I am suddenly finding FF not allowing me to have certain sites work. I click on the "Allow" button but it repeatedly says same thing. I click Allow again and again. No progress. I have allowed all cookies and have no other restrictions in Preferences. This never happened with previous versions of FF. Why now and what can I do about it?

When attempting to organize my bookmarks, it shows me three random pages which are not actually bookmarks and does not allow me to make any changes (deleting them, showing my bookmarks and folders and actually allowing me to organize them). The sidebar only shows the 'all bookmarks' tab. All of the options under the tab including 'new bookmark...', 'new folder...', and 'delete' are greyed out and not available. I can still create new bookmarks in the bookmarks menu or toolbar, but cannot change anything I have already done.

I tried starting in safe mode and my bookmarks and theme still remained - is that normal? Also tried deleting all of my bookmarks while starting in safe mode - succeeded in doing that, but the three random non-bookmarks still remain and cannot be deleted.

The past week, every time I click on anything - an e-mail in gmail, something on a website I want to go to, the arrow to scroll on a page, the Mac colorwheel comes on and it takes forever. I finally got so frustrated I switched back to my old Safari. But this is a new problem, and I didn't do anything to the computer to cause it. My internet connection is fine (cable) as Safari works great. So what's going on? (I have version 3.5.9)

Now my bookmarks have vanished and some of my Doc icons for programs (iPhoto, iMovie, and iMovie HD have a questions mark instead of their icon. What the heck is going on??! When I launch the new FireFox 3.6 I get the message that my History will not work because of some sort of file conflict that is being used by another program, most likely a security program. I've installed nothing new...How can I get my old FireFox back (3,5)? This is truely a messssss...

note: tried installing 3.5, but same problem - no bookmarks. In what file are the old bookmarks residing? I never did a bookmarks backup, but some file keeps track of them each time a launch FireFox... Can I just find the correct file and 'overwrite' the current defective one somehow>?? Thanks!

I am rebuilding my win xp pro pc after a trojan horse killed it (it was ugly!). I want to avoid installing Internet Explorer at all and install Firefox as my only browser. How can I get a complete installation file so I can run it from a disc and get on the web without any other browser installed on my computer. I don't know if this is possible or not, but I hope it is. The only other computer that I have is a MAC portable and I can't get to Windows possibilities on the Firefox site. Any one got any help for me? thanks, Michael
