Normally, when I want to bookmark a webpage, I right click on web page and select "bookmark this page", then additional selection choices come up allowing me to choose the save folder options, changing the description properties of the website, etc. For several days all options no longer occur - i.e. when I right click, I choose "bookmark this page" and it simply saves to the bottom of the default list. I've since rebooted thinking that might cure it but to no avail. I've checked under /tools/options but cannot seem to find a cure. Please help. I am running Firefox 3.5.9 w/ Windows XP sp3.

I just started using Charter cable - maybe the extensions it installed caused the problems. See list below.

I have a "new" computer and downloaded firefox. Before I could get all my bookmarks and get a real homepage of my choice, "Alot" took over without my permission, made itself the start page and changed the toolbars to suit itself. It removed the "worded" tool bar (the one with file, view, tools, bookmarks, etc. in print) I want it back! how do I get it back?

Over time, due to me hitting wrong keys, my gmail login has accumulated several mistyped usernames. Every time I access gmail, they all pop up. I'd like to start clean, but I can't get rid of them. I've followed your instructions for clearing my cache and history, but to no avail. I've followed instructions to click inside the username window and then use the arrow and delete keys--also no success. I'm on a Mac, OSX 10.4.11. Thank you!

I have searched and cannot find one simple solution to the lack /inability of firefox to line up my pages correctly instead of looking like a bad printing job on each page, with text over text, the inability to submit pages because the boxes won't line up etc, you know what I am talking about since a lot of people have complained about the same darn thing over and over. I have tried repeatedly to do any of the possible fixes, and NONE of them work. Why not admit you have bungled it and just be a good browser and fix the problem? NO its not because I use Windows Vista, I have used my old XP and MAC and yep, same stupid problem, so have a bit of decency and tell us a simple step by step fix for those of us experiencing this or we will end up leaving and going back to IE simply to be able to use a page without getting dizzy trying to read text within text!
