Since I upgraded to 3.6.3 my bookmarks folder has become nearly half the size upon exporting it in html format. I normally refresh my working copy of Mozilla by saving the bookmarks and then erasing all aspects of Firefox and starting over from scratch. I am concerned that if I rely upon this smaller folder I may be losing data. Can someone tell me what is happening here? It could be that this is just an improvement in Firefox but I do not know how to test the waters to see if all my data is saved.

No matter how many times I try to upgrade or reinstall, it always installs an older version that allows pop ups and viruses to keep coming back. How do I upgrade to the latest version of firefox if it only somehow always restores the previous version?

No matter what I do, I cannot upgrade firefox, and as a result, almost every site I go on that no longer supports my browser keeps telling me to upgrade, and I keep getting back unwanted viruses. Each time I try to reinstall or upgrade firefox, all it does continuously is reinstall the old version I had previously.

I check the pop-up blocker box in Options, but after a while I find it unchecked -- usually after I reopen the browser.

Firefox help said McAfee can change preferences, but when I clicked on the link it provided in response to that problem (the link said ``Pop-up Blocker), it didn't discuss the anti-virus issue. I don't know if McAfee is the problem, though. And the problem of finding the pop-up box unchecked has persisted through several Firefox software updates.
