I updated Firefox last week, and again today. When I rollover a link, I used to get a little box which would tell me the title of the link or first line of a forum posting. I still get the website listed in the status bar, but now I only get a little empty yellow box with the rollover.

I just installed FF 3.6.10 update, and now my mouse wheel doesn't scroll. I checked my mouse settings, and all is correct. Mouse wheel scrolls in non-Firefox applications, including off-line folders and online IE. Mouse wheel worked fine with last version of FF. Also tried hooking up a different mouse, (an old mechanical one at that), same problem. If this cannot be fixed, how can I uninstall the latest update and rollback to the previous version?

I accidentally removed my address bar/file/history/tools/etc., line on the top of my screen-I did this while removing extra toolbars-I don't know where to find it or how to get it back. I did a system restore, but that didn't bring it back. I don't know what to do! I had no idea that could be removed! I have little technical knowledge & have done everything I can think of to find it or bring it back.

I have a few tabs open and did some updates not related to Firefox so I need to restart my computer. When I go to close Firefox it doesn't ask me if I want to save my tabs. I know I can change my settings to just have my tabs open upon restart but I would just like for the problem to be solved so everything is back to normal.

This company's online system has only been tested with IE. I've hit a glitch trying to log off. When I log off, it takes me to the log in screen, but I'm not logged off and can't log back in. I'm going to try it using IE and see if the problem disappears. If it does, can I use IE just for this company and use FF for everything else?

How to know which port Firefox is connecting to a website with ?

I've been trying to connect to a FTP server using WinSCP, but the server just won't allow it, despite me having the right login informations and all.

I tryed it on Firefox, and I could connect and see the files just fine. The problem is, Firefox doesn't do uploads and file edits.

My guess is that the problem comes from me selecting the wrong port to connect with on WinSCP.

To test my theory, I wanted to check which port Firefox was using to connect to the server. But I searched in every menu option (I think) but didn't find the info I wanted.

Any ideas on how to find it ?

hi, one day, my search engine (just the default - google) has gone from my search engine field next to the address bar in firefox.

if i click the drop down button and go "search engines", there's nothing listed in there, and the "restore defaults" button is greyed out.

i have uninstalled FF, and deleted the profiles directory, but still when i reinstall there's still no seach engines available..

i've tried deleting the search.sqllite file in the profile and it doesn't help (of course - deleting the whole profile doesn't work).

any ideas?

Hello, I would like to be able to document all the add-ins, along with version information as well as any other readily available information that is part of the firefox installation.

I am aware that there is a dialog box at tools-addins, but I want to be able to catpure the entire list in a text format for the purpose of documenting the installation and for reporting troubleshooting.

Is there something available? Is there a place to make an enhancement suggestion if not?

Since updating to 3.6.1 I don’t get an empty browser window in my tool bar whe. it opens --- just a list of search engines. I can’t find anything in “Help” or the FAQ’s that seem to address this. My only choice seems to go back to Safari.
