I have two screen shots, one of each browser. I don't see anyway to attach anything here. I did nothing to change my system when this started and the owner of the website says they made no changes during the time this changed.

I checked the knowledge base and only found one thing that might have addressed my problem. I did it anyway just to see - View, Page Style and it's set to Basic Page Style. Changing to No Style did nothing.

After I upgraded my firefox to version 6, all my bookmarks that were previously in my bookmark toolbar are now in the menu bar, and the bookmark toolbar just shows up with no buttons. How do I move the bookmarks back to their own bar? I'd like to hide the menu bar.

Thanks.

I had FF running fully OK, but then tried to upgrade to FF9. After downloading the FFicon was crossed over, an a dialogbox said that my system did not support this version. So I threw this away and downloaded version 6, but this still has the crossed over thing, and won't open. How can I get a version of Firefox running on my Mac? Everything else works perfectly.

When I close Firefox, the window closes but the Firefox.exe process and Plug-in Container remain running in the background and have to be shut down using Windows Task Manager.

This happens frequently. Something in Firefox continues to run even when the program is closed. The process has to be stopped before I can open Firefox again.

I upgraded to 6.0.1 and experimented with the tab groups. Now I cannot turn it off. It seems to force the same tabs to be opened with the next session. I had (and still have) the warn me when I close multiple tabs. It overrides that option if I click the close the window. It just closes the firefox window and reopens all the tabs with the next session. This nullifies the best feature that firefox had over chrome.

Please help me to get my old Firefox back...

I've been using web browsers for almost 20 years and this is one of the strangest problems I've encountered. When some Firefox pages are launched that are supposed to be straight forward English language pages, they are displayed as an entire page densely filled, top to bottom, full width, with tiny Chinese characters. I have tried to troubleshoot this by: disabling all add-ons, especially translators; clean uninstall/reinstall of the current version of Firefox; rolling back to previous versions of Firefox - 1st FF7, right now FF6.01; clean uninstall/reinstall of my graphics card driver; rolling back to previous versions of my graphics card driver; system restore back to before this problem started; run deep scans, multiple times, of each of the six anti-malware apps I have on my computer, including root kit scans. None of them have solved the problem.

Strangest part of it is that it seems to occur randomly. For example, in my latest Firefox session, I re-enabled a number of add-ons after disabling them as part of my ongoing troubleshooting. When I clicked on Options for all the others except the Groowe toolbar, I got normal English pages. But for Groowe toolbar options I received a full page of Chinese characters like those shown below.This happens pretty much every time Firefox session but not for all pages; only 1-3 of them per session. The rest are normal.

I have yet to detect a pattern of when it will happen. A given web page may display normally or it may display as all Chinese characters like this sample of the page just displayed for Groowe Options. The last time I set Groowe Options (= the last time I reinstalled Firefox - yesterday) it displayed normally.

This paste of the first few lines of the Groowe Options page is a bigger font than the one displayed on the web page it was copied from. I don't know how to make it paste the same size font, but I think you'll get the picture from this. Now just imagine tiny versions of these lines completely covering the page display -- and I do mean completely - no spaces, no blank lines, just non-stop characters like this but much smaller font.

If, say, the URL of a web site is put in the address bar and Firefox opens it in a new tab in the normal way then the firefox window looses focus, the window's bar at the top greys out. I have to click the page to restore focus.

This has a much greater irritation value than it may sound.

Same thing with clicking a website from, say, google.

I have the latest Firefix update, and I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. It's annoying, specifically for games because I have to make sure the cursor is to the right (by a certain amount) of the item I wish to click. This issue is only in Firefox, I have tried in Internet Explorer *shudder* and there is no problem, I do not have any web browsers currently installed.
