The latest update from Firefox said I HAD to update Adobe or there would be a security problem. I replied to the answer about the edit bar, but have not received a reply: This is what I wrote: Thank you for helping me. I had no idea how to do that. Now if you can tell me about the adobe issue I would so appreciate it. I do use Firefox and I went to add/remove to see which version and could not find the Adobe 10.1.82.76 it said I had??? Then I just went back and it is there. I was told I HAD to update the Adobe because of a security issue, but when I went to add it, it said warning the program I was about to add might be dangerous????? So I have it on the down load thing, I have not told it to run, but it shows up in my add/remove folder and I am SO confused??? Do I need to run it? I went to the adobe site and found it when I could not find the "edit" button. I am not sure if I have the right version. It said certain versions would not run with Firefox and I do not want to mess up my computer. Please advise Sheila

I get a great deal of spam, but recently, I have noticed that it appears to track my recent browsing. For example, I was looking for photography classes twice in the last 3 days and today, I have spam about "dream jobs shooting picture", an email about degree programs in photography. I had been browsing the apple web site for apps for my iPad, and over the past several days, I have received emails about auctions of iPads and other apple merchandise. Seems fishy. Is there a way to block this behavior? It's intrusive. I love firefox, but I might stop using it over this issue.

This seems to have happened after I received the update to 3.6.10. I have also had a variety of updates from Microsoft lately. I also have my font set extra large in the display area of the control panel in Windows XP and the tool bars of Firefox are in the size, no change there, only in web pages and e-mail.

When I click on any bookmark, I am always sent to the BBC News. This also happens when I use the "Getting Started" tool. I haven't tried every tool on the site, so I do'nt know if it always happens.

Well, the pretty pictures are nice, but the site is clunky. I almost always have to hit "Try Again" because Firefox cannot seem to find sites, including itself.

First website used first use of FF 3.6.1: 1. My password didn't work to open my existing account on a website. 2. I called the site's customer service and changed password. 3. It would only open in new window. Each time I wanted to go to my account I had to open new window. 4. If I go to page 2 of my account, I have to reenter login info. If I go to another page on the site, I have to reenter login info. I have never had to do these things before, unless it had been a day or two since I last opened my account. Anyone else with this problem? Any suggestions to fix it at my end? Will FoxFire fix it at their end?

Since I use this site frequently, I have just begun using another browser and might have to stop using FF after being longtime user.

using internet explorer when I click on a favorite or bookmark, and go to that page then I want to go to another bookmark so click on favorites again and on my list the last one I clicked on will be highlighted. Thar way I know where i was last so can work my way down a list. Using Firefox I go to a favorite then click on favorites again and the list opens, but there is no indication of which one you were just on.

How do I get my last link to be highlighted in Firefox like it does in explorer
