So my XP computer's power supply died a few weeks ago so I got a new computer. Just replaced the powersupply in the old PC to get my old files. I tried to back up my Firefox profile from my old computer to the new Windows 7 computer, which I've had running Firefox for about a week. When I loaded my backed up profile and restarted Firefox, it seems to have reverted to the style of the old Firefox, or at least the current version that was running on my XP computer. How can I keep my old profile, with the new look of Firefox that I've grown to love over the past week??

I have had firefox for over a year and I recently installed it on my aunts computer. When I did in the upper left hand corner there was an orange box that said firefox on it. I recently re-installed it on to my computer and it is still the same as I had before. (Just the firefox symbol) How do I get the most recent version? It does say that I have the 6.2 or whatever the most recent is. Thank you in advance for the timely response to my question.

The Firefox window is not shown at the top of the page. Consequently there is no Tools menu I cannot say what version of Firefox I have downloaded as 'about Firefox' is not shown. I downloaded it last week so I presume it must be the 6.02

When I used to click on the + of an already opened tab to open a new tab it used to open a display of windows (not tabs) of my most used sites and I could just click on the window to go straight there. Now I only get a blank page and blank address bar. I am very unhappy that this facility has disappeared. How can I get it back? I used it a lot. It has only disappeared since I upgraded to Version 6.02. Using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

In the older version of Firefox, when I opened a new tab, firefox remember and displayed previous open tabs. I could automatically click on a prior tab that was opened to open it again - such as my mail. Is this feature available in 6.2?

In the older version of Firefox, when I opened a new tab, firefox remember and displayed previous open tabs when I clicked on the + field for new tab. This display showed last several locations where I visited and I could automatically click on it to bring up that last view. In this feature, I could go to any of my last 6 views quite easily and bring up any of them as a shortcut.

I have a number of bookmarks that are long and have misleading titles as I failed to enter a shorter more concise name when I first bookmarked them. However, I cannot seem to find a way of renaming the bookmarks other than deleting the current one and bookmarking again this time changing the title to something that I recognise. For example I bookmarked Ebuyer and in my bookmark list it says, "Cheap laptops etc, etc" all I want is "Ebuyer". I realise that I can delete this Bookmark and save it again and this time alter the name at the start.
