My bookmarks show a lot of favicons, but not all. Those added later do when I open them, but then the favicons again disappear from the bookmarks list. Is, maybe, some cache for them full? How can I in that case increase the cache size? I have set Firefox to delete history at turn off. Maybe I have to allow history to store favicons and then again set it to delete history?

I noticed it a few weeks ago. When I just search in the address bar as I normally do Firefox has begun using Bing search as oppose to Googles "I'm Feeling Lucky". This is very frustrating, as Google is far superior to Bing.

This only seems to happen however when I search one word in the address bar. If I search 2 or more words, it continues to use Google.

I have searched for solution to this already and nothing seems to work. I don't have any Bing/Microsoft search bars installed. I have no search extensions from Microsoft. And there are no updates on my computer that have been recommned to be removed on other forums.

Please get my Firefox back to normal!

I never use automatic updates on any software I use. Somehow, my add-on list made a connection with mozilla without my knowledge, and disabled my java causing me HUGE problems. How did this happen? How do I sever the connection between my copy of firefox and mozilla? Thanks to this feature, I now have an info bar at the top of every new tab I open. I HAVEN'T UPDATED BECAUSE I CAN'T. My browser that I've used for YEARS no longer works properly. And now I can't install another one OR upgrade.

When I send a page to print in Firefox, it comes up as a landscape portrait - which I never use and which seldom fits the whole page. Previously, in other apps, I've got around this by changing the format in Print Preview, but there's no option to do this. It was always OK in the past - what happened?

Whenever I click a link, open Firefox, or open a new tab (essentially whenever the page address changes), Firefox opens two index of files of either my Firefox program folder or My Documents, a page that cannot be opened because its address contains unknown characters, and a site called ç.com. These all open in a new window and seem to backlog themselves, that is, if the window hasn't opened after going to a few pages, a few windows will pop up unexpectedly. I've run my adware and malware programs multiple times including in safe mode.

I just downloaded Firefox 3.6.6. & after restarting my computer all of the pages that I went to on the internet are now very small. I have a large monitor & had no problem with the previous version of Firefox. The web pages were all large. I know that you can click on "Ctrl +" to manually enlarge a page, but how do I adjust the settings so that all of the pages are large again? Help!!!

Getting annoyed with "Your Firefox Browser is out of date" notification that hijacks the browser page every time I open Firefox. If I wanted to update I would! I do not want to update. I want to remain on the version I have so HOW DO I STOP the annoying notification alert every time I open a browser window ...to which I have been selecting. "No thanks, I will risk it". I do not want this box popping up anymore. It seems like a bullying form of forcing something on someone.

It's unbelievable! combined with firefox, it takes up to 285mb and i'm just watching a video... And yes, I started the thing in safe mode, no effect. If it is not a memory leak, then what is it?

I have Windows 7, and when I installed Firefox, almost every time I use a drop-down menu, the menu will display for a split second, but will not stay up. Drop-down menus work fine in IE, but not in Firefox. I have to use the directional arrows to select from the list of choices, and this is problematic with menus with many choices. This happens every time I use a drop-down menu, so the problem is not site- specific.
