After installing Firefox 5, the bookmarks pull-down window has changed. First, the area to the right of the file name is extremely wide. Second, when clicking on a filename including bookmark links, the screen listing bookmarks covers the filenames, thus making it impossible to simply scroll back to the filename list.

Hi,

When searching with the Google Search Bar in the upper right hand corner of the browser, and the Location Bar my search results appear up on the "www.google.co.il" website. I would like this to default to either Google.com, or Google.co.zm [Zambian site].

I have completely uninstall Firefox 4 and upgraded to Firefox 5 losing all of my bookmarks and customizations, with no luck. The 'Bing', 'Yahoo' and other engines work fine, so I presume its a setting that was changed and not a virus [also because it takes me to an official Google page]. Also, my homepage searches work as they should.

I believe the page it brings me to is Google in Israel, I am currently living in Zambia, Africa and on occasion the web service is bounced through Middle Eastern providers, so that may be a clue.

Understand that I am not extremely technical on a computer [I can hold my own BUT I'm sure I can really screw it up if I wanted] so if I need to adjust host files [or something] I will need and appreciate step by step instructions. I am on a HP laptop using Windows 7 [64bit].

Thanks in advance, I am really at a loss.

In options, if I check the box "Open pop-ups in a new tab" nothing happens when I click the link. If I uncheck the box, clicking the link takes me to a new Firefox window directly to the page. If I click the same link in Chrome or IE9 I get a jscript window that asks me a question before taking me to the page.

I originally started using Firefox because of problems with IE which are now fixed. Fire Fox 3xxx was great then 4 came out worked ok till the first update ,then pages will not load completely, wheel just keeps spinning 5 was the same and 6 is the same. one Fix is to turn off Java, this makes the sites load but then other sites require Java, can't keep turning on and off. Why are so many add on not compatible? Please fix the loading problem or I will have to stop using Firefox and I do like it when working right. Windows XP fully up to date all add on s are up to date. There are several site with the problem sometimes they load fine but most of the time they do not Richard

In v3.X... you could get to prior pages viewed on a site/tab by clicking an arrow that was part of the Forward/Back navigation arrows. Clicking the arrow gave you a drop down list of the prior pages you had viewed (from that tab). That feature is missing in v6.0. Any way to get this back?

Can the "Firefox first-time run after update" (aka. "What's New" and "Add-on compatibility check") be disabled?

We plan to deploy a Firefox update on our campus. The issue I have is this: after the update, the "Add-on Compatibility checker" pops up, then the "What's new" page shows up on the first start after the update. The issue here: we use Deep Freeze to prevent the kiddos from doing any software-based mischief on the machines. But if we push the update out at night, during the maintenance windows, they will be frozen back in pre-first-time-run mode. Thus, each time a student boots the PC up after that, they will get both the compatibility popup and the "What's new" page.

Is there a way I can disable that during the upgrade, so the students will not have to click those 2 items away? I would like for Firefox to just silently disable any incompatible add-ons and not to display the "What's new" page. I found ways to do that, but they involve editing omni.jar and such. I would rather have an official, documented way of doing this.

Thanks!!
