I have recently moved from PC to Mac. I can't figure out on the Mac how to edit bookmarks. In other words, I have a URL I use to log into applications for work, but depending on the available servers, that first URL gets rerouted to a different URL by the time I'm accessing the application. Only at that time am I able to save the bookmark, so it's saving the wrong URL to launch the next time. I'd like to edit the bookmark so I can put the right URL in the bookmark. How do I do that? Also - is Firefox synch available between PC and Mac? I don't see sync as an option on my PC's firefox.

I was looking for particular recipes, and when I downloaded them a new tool bar arrived called Total recipe search. Now every time I access mozilla firefox "wot" informs me the site has a poor reputation. I cannot find a download file as it went straight to the browser, and it will not "restore" to a previous date. I do not know how to remove this. I have used Firefox for years. Please help if you can

Startup homepages are overwritten; overwrites custom settings

I am running FF 6.0.2 on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 on a network, but FF is installed on my local machine. I set my start pages to Yahoo and Google News, but FF overwrites my settings. Each time I reset my preferences and start the browser it displays the whats new and first run tabs. It seems to treat each instance as a brand-new install.

I had disabled or removed all of my addons and basically started with a "safe" firefox in case there was some conflict, but that didn't help.

My bookmarks and security passwords settings do not change, but it reverts to "Remember history" when I use the "Custom settings" option in the Privacy window.

The about:config settings for browser.startup and startup.homepage are:

browser.startup.homepage_override.buildID; user set; string; 20110902133214

browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone; user set; string; rv:6.0.2

startup.homepage_override_url; default; string http://www.mozilla.com/%LOCALE%/%APP%/%VERSION%/whatsnew/

startup.homepage_welcome_url; default; string; http://www.mozilla.com/%LOCALE%/%APP%/%VERSION%/firstrun/

Just suddenly 3 hours ago, letmewatchthis.ch stopped working for me "Unable to connect




         Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.letmewatchthis.ch.
       



 The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
   moments.
 If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
   connection.
 If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
   that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

All other sites are fine and I have used letmewatchthis over 1,000 times. I ha it tested on a few on the test sites and apparently it is just me :/

Firefox is not remembering my browsing history. I have all the settings set up for Firefox to remember but I keep having to re-enter urls that I use all the time. I had to reformat my hd recently and it remembered just fine prior to the reformat but now it does not remember the history. It goes to the start page but I have to re-enter previous url's that I have visited every time. How do I fix this?

Additionally, under Help/Submit Feedback, neither "Firefox made me happy" nor "Firefox made me sad" options would submit after I tried to enter this problem.

I have set Firefox as my default browser with Google as my default search engine. I have eliminated Bing from the drop-down list in Firefox of alternate engines. However, when I am browsing and open a new tab, the Bing search window page appears. Google is still in the search line at the top of the page.

I want Google to be the search engine that appears, not Bing.
