When I use gmail, I can click on the username box (not password box) and receive a number of suggestions - the usernames that have been used on that computer/browser set up previously. The order in which they are suggested seems to vary, so my question is this: how does Firefox decide on the order? Is it alaphabetically (seems not to be), by most frequently used, most recently used or some other system?

I have many websites that I frequent, and I was wondering how I can add a new one to the window pane that shows up under the web address entry. Instead of entering a web address, I would like to click on the down arrow in the right hand side of the web address pane, and be able to simply click on the website I would like to add.

Okay, I "saved" (I thought) my whole Firefox profile to a backup drive. Then I reformatted my C:\ drive, installed the latest version of Firefox, and read the Mozilla FAQs and cannot get my profile back. I'd be happy just with my bookmarks if nothing else. I've copied and pasted, I've created new Firefox profiles (with the Profile Manager), nothing seems to work. Can someone walk me through this without referring me to FAQs I've already read? Thank you in advance, I'm really desperate to recover my bookmarks, they are almost all work-related.

I did all the suggestions for clearing a site from the location bar and the only option I have is to turn off the history suggestions in the preferences to not see the sites. If I clear the history and the site is not in my bookmarks, where is this information being stored on my computer and how do I get rid of it? The computer is a desktop Mac.
