I am used to typing a site-name into the navigation window, hitting "ENTER" and going to that website. Example: i Type in "Amazon", hit "ENTER" and I go to immediately to Amazon. Now, since the last update, it does a Bing search. I don't WANT a Bing search, and if I did, I'd go to Bing myself.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== It just started after a recent update.

I have windows 7 professional. My son is taking an online class (digital photography) which uses Blackboard 8 Academic Suite. Last week photos stopped uploading successfully. Blackboard's solution is to use Firefox 2.0.0.20. I had to uninstall Firfoz 3.6.9, and install the earlier version from a link provided by Blackboard. It worked, however Firefox popped up a message saying that this version is no longer supported and that I should update to 3.6

I installed Firefox over a year ago and used it only a few times then remained with Internet Explorer. Clicking the ICON for Firefox results in a window"Firefox could not install this item because of a failure in Chrome Registration. Please contact the author about this problem." This window opens three or more times, I keep closing it and then Firefox opens. I was asked to download Firefox 3.6 and I did, but the invitation to download it continues to pop up.

I would like to know if FF 3.6 now supports the Identity Safe toolbar and logins feature of Norton Internet Security 2010? The last time I tried to update to the latest version of FF, I lost my Norton toolbar and all access to my Identity Safe and saved logins. I was forced to go back to the older version of FF in order to restore this feature.

I'd like to update to 3.6, but not at the expense of losing all my logins again. Likewise, the FF login/pw feature doesn't consistently prompt for new logins, and doesn't always fill in already saved ones, so I am relying heavily on Norton for this function.

TIA!
