Heya,

From time to time, I'm using my girlfriends laptop with Windows 7. I have my own profile there.

As she is Italian, she has installed the Italian Firefox. I do not speak any word of Italian, so that is abit of a problem to me. Is there any way for me to install any other language such as English or Norwegian, without affecting her installation of the Italian Firefox?

Running Firefox 3.6.10 Suddenly the Tools menu contains only a couple of options and sometimes opens blank. I seem to remember being able to click Options to set my tabs as the current addresses. Obviously I cannot do this now. The problem seems to have occurred having downloaded some software which included Google Chrome (which I didn't want, incidentally). I have since removed this software. I have tried re-starting the computer. I tried re-installing Firefox on top of the existing one. How can I return the Tools menu to how it was? If I remove Firefox from my computer and do a clean install, will I be able to retain all my bookmarks and tab settings? Or is there an easier way?!

I want to be able to have Firefox open up the .vcs files I get in Outlook, like IE does. It looks like I could use the Tools -> Options, Application Panel, but I need to add that mime type. I have read that changing the mimetypes on the server may work, but I have numerous servers at work that send these files. I can see to change the file, but I need text/x-vCalendar and not text/calendar type.

It might have something to do with a change I made yesterday. I followed some instructions that said to go to TOOLS and click Clear Cache . Now there isn't a bar on top of my screen anymore to go back and click "tools" (or anything else). I went to Control Panel and did a "restore to earlier point" (restoring computer to an earlier date) but it did no good. What can I do to get things back?

When I search for a word using the Find bar, Firefox does not highlight all the hits on the page. (Sometimes it highlights some.)

It apparently sees the hits, because it jumps to each one as I click Next. But it doesn't highlight the hits. I can't see what Firefox has found.

I fear this is a Windows 7 issue (I am not a Win7 fan).
