I want google as my search engine, not Bing. How do I make Google the default search engine in the "Search the Web" feature of the search bar; or, how do I remove the "Search the Web" feature of the search bar so that "Google" can be default?

How do I make Google the default search engine in the "Search the Web" feature of the search bar; or, how do I remove the "Search the Web" feature of the search bar so that "Google" can be default? When I move "Search the Web" down and "Google" up, the search bar resets every time Firefox reloads.

I use Windows Vista Home, everything was fine, Firefox did an update, now I'm getting errors?

Please explain how I can fix this.

When I try to watch movies on FF using Netflix I get a private browsing error preventing me from doing so even though I do not have private browsing activated/turned on. Solutions?

When I try to play a movie on Netflix I get an error telling me that Firefox's private browsing mode is restricting Netflix from storing settings on my computer.

The suggests were to click the Tools menu and select private browsing. My private browsing was not activated.

Or to click the Tools menu at the top of the browser and select Options, then Privacy and then Remember history. This setting was also as it should.

Additionally, I went into the history and made sure the permanent private browsing was unchecked and I cleared all cookies. Still Netflix is not working.

I called Netflix and they say that everything is streaming correctly from their end and it is this computer. I can watch Netflix on other computers or my TV on this network but not this computer.

I am at a loss at how to disengage private browsing when the private browsing does not appear to be engaged.

In Internet Explorer and Windows I changed the location where temp files are stored to an external hard drive. I would like to change the Firefox temp file location, also, to improve performance and lifespan of my solid state drive. Is this change possible?

Your system installed an add-on called "SPECIAL SAVINGS" without my authorization or request. There is no DELETE or DISABLE button. I want this thing gone.

As I have been using Firefox for years, I hope that my only option to get rid of this ILLEGAL SALES TOOL is not the deletion of Firefox from all of the computers in our company. However, if that is the only method of removing this thing, I WILL!

While it is an annoyance to force all of our people to learn a new browser, PUSH SALES ADD-ON's which were NOT REQUESTED or AUTHORIZED are far worse.

Hopefully you will be able to tell me how to get rid of this thing.

I just upgraded to Firefox 6 and it's really bad on my eye sight (which is poor anyway due to illness). I've already downloaded an addon to make the words in the Firefox interface bigger, but how do I make the icons bigger (i.e back, forward, refresh, stop, home).

They're tiny and I can hardly see them, and adding text to them makes my browser look extremely messy.

Is there a way to change the colour of the firefox buttons etc too? Thank you for any help :(
