Suddenly in the last few days, I can no longer view images on a stock photography site where I sell content. I can view the thumbnails of my and others' images, but when I click to enlarge, I get only a white box the size the image would be. I can also no longer view images posted in the forums. I've logged out and back in, cleared cookies, run CCleaner, rebooted, updated Java, and nothing helps. I can view the content if I log on with a different browser so this is a Firefox issue.

Years ago when Netscape was the browser of choice for those who didn't use Internet Explorer, the Netscape bookmarks had a search feature where it would tell you not only if you had saved a particular bookmark but also the folder where you filed it. IIRC, about six years ago Netscape stopped informing the user where the bookmark you were searching for was filed. It seemed odd to me that Netscape dropped this feature, and Firefox doesn;t have it either. The Firefox search feature only tells you if you have the bookmark. Right now I can't tell where I filed a bookmark and it is frustrating me trying to locate where I filed it.

My question: is there a Firefox add-on that will tell me where the bookmark has been filed?

I had 3.5 for online cci.edu it work just fine. I downloaded 3.6 and now I can't attend my classes. Above the web page it says: Firefox Security has redirected your page. I need to know what do I need to do so I can get into school. I'm getting behind in my classes. I didn't have this problem with all the other Firefox before now. I have deleted all my cookies etc. Please help!!!!!!! I would like to redownload 3.5 if I can or a lower version if I can't resolve this problem. Where can I get it? I've been looking for them.

When I go to Help & Troubleshooting & click Open Containing Folder I get a Windows Explorer window that shows the file path including Used-Edward-AppData, etc. But when I click on the little triangle to the right of Edward the drop down menu does not include AppData and if I just go into Windows Explorer and Users-Edward, there is no AppData folder. So I cannot overwrite the profile file with the saved profile info from my earlier laptop. The folder symbol next to Edward has a lock on it but I don't know what that means or how to unlock it.
