Hi, Somehow, Babylon toolbar and search provider got installed. And now I want to get rid of it. So, 1) I uninstalled it from "add or remove programs" in the control panel 2) cleared out the "add-ons" from all the browsers and even 3) searched the registry for "Babylon" and deleted all the traces of it 4) searched C: drive for the keyword "Babylon" and deleted all the folders

But still to my surprise, the search results of about:home in Firefox 11.0 came out of "Babylon"

can't move the screen image-display. I hover the mouse-arrow over the edge, to drag the screen inwards and it won't work. Neither the left side, nor the right, nor the top or bottom. I need to be able to do this because my monitor have a graphics error on the far right side of the screen-display that covers about two inches in width the whole length of the right side of my window screen image, so I can not see where to put my mouse cursor in order to scroll up and down. Plus, sometimes I want to make the window image shorter or longer again, and I can't even do that. It seems like it is a "settings" issue. Just don't know how to enable it. Please help.

Some pages have 3, 4, 5 or more adobe flash advertisements running at the same time, which slows the browser down tremendously. Then, if you happen to have multiple tabs open, the browser crawls to a virtual standstill, and many times, stops responding at all.

I would like to be able to choose whether or not a page can run flash content - not have it be something that runs all the time for every page, with the only option being to kill the plugincontainer process in taskmanager - which kills even the Adobe Flash items you might want to view; such as a youtube video.

Why is there not a way to turn Adobe Flash off in the browser? I have updated both Firefox and Adobe Flash but nowhere is there an option for turning it on or off depending on your needs.

Can a control be added to the Internet Options, that you can set, to have a page ask before it is allowed to run Flash Content? Having that kind of control would GREATLY enhance the enjoyment of browsing multiple pages.

Any information on how to do this, would be appreciated.

I have used the Belkin transfer cable which did not transfer the bookmarks. I can't find them on my C Drive. I'd like to transfer them manually using a thumb drive but can't without locating the file with the bookmarks.

Firefox and its bookmarks are on the original computer. At this time I can't use the synch function, but must manually transfer the bookmarks. How do I recognize in the files and copy on an external device and then transfer

Going to a news or weather site and seeing the news or weather from 3 days ago is ridiculous. I erased all history, I set private browsing, told Firefox to not remember history, all in vain. It still displays the old content until I refresh.

I currently use Firefox on Win XP sp3 and am preparing to install Win 7 which must be a clean install. I have a complete backup of the computer but I will need to reinstall all apps. I found the 'Backup Book marks to HTML' though I'm not sure it if also works for the toolbar websites. The password manager seems to only import from IE or Safari with no 'Export' Are there files/folders or a profile that I can simply copy from my backup to Win 7? I would prefer not to have to manually enter all my saved logins if possible.

Thanks
