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 cannot update Firefox, I've tried disabling firewalls etc. My computer claims that I need admin permission to update Firefox although I am the owner and administrator of this computer. There are updates available and know the admin password for this computer. It started when I installed the Noscript tool (which I have tried disabling with the same results)

whenever i close firefox (osx 10.6.3, firefox 3.6.6), i come back to find the history gone. i've looked for answers and tried all sorts: my prefs all are set to saving history, i'm not set to start in private browsing, i've downloaded a new copy of firefox and replaced the old, and following advice from a forum i went into about.config and checked that general.useragent was not in bold, it wasn't. the problem even persisted when i recently upgraded from osx tiger to snow leopard

the weirdest thing is that using history>show all history, it is completely blank when i start up. but if i type stuff into the url bar, it comes up with history results (not bookmarks, i've checked) that i haven't visited in months, years even, there's history results for maps for a game i sold 2 years ago

From looking at the support forum there seems to a number of people experiencing the same problem, but no fixes appear to be posted!

When trying to forward and e-mail or retrieve it from "drafts" more often than not only the heading will appear and the space where the body of the e-mail belongs is empty. If I try repeatedly - going out and then back in to the e-mail - I can eventually get it and successfully send it on. If I send it while the field is blank the person receiving it will just get a blank e-mail except for the address and subject line.
