Hi,

After I cleared my history a couple of days ago, I noticed that the autocomplete funtion of the Location Bar no longer worked. I've visited many sites since then, and yet they don't come up, neither do my bookmarks. In Firefox "preferences", privacy, I have selected "History and Bookmarks" for the location bar. I've tried to use Firefox in safe mode, but the problem was also present in safe mode.

I tried installing Firefox 4 several times, and Firefox 5 several times. Each time, I got only as far as the window with the Firefox and Applications icons. When I dragged the Firefox icon onto the Applications icon and released it, it bounced back to its former position. Firefox 3.6 remained the only installed version.

why won't firefox open a hot link in a new tab? I have selected the setting that is supposed to do this, but Firefox insists upon opening a new window, every time! It's annoying as hell.

OK...ummmm, I'm running Mac OS10.4.11 (not so sure about the last two digits, but you get the idea). I installed the latest Firefox update maybe a week ago... my monitor crapped out yesterday, so I replaced it with a bigger one that I had lying around. I have used this monitor with this machine before, and had no problems with getting Firefox to open links that I clicked on in a new tab. As per your Help site, I checked the monitor's 'size' and it was as always. I even reduced the 'size' of the monitor, but no joy.

What gives, oh Mighty One?

I'm not sure if that is the proper way to describe it. When a web page opens, random words are underlined (such as laptop on this Ask A New Question page.)

Sometimes if it is a word like "claims," the link goes to an insurance company. I think this should be an option to turn this off because I think it is annoying. I guess it might be helpful if I was doing research but I'm not.

Now working with 3.6.18 (I had v4, then v5 briefly), the tab bar 'failed' in v5 so I went back to v3.6.18, but the problem followed. No matter how many tabs are open I cannot get a new blank tab by clicking the "+" tab on tab bar. I CANNOT get a new tab by mousing over another tab, right button menu "new tab" will not work.

I CAN select a bookmark "open in new tab" it works. I CAN do the same on a link, "open in new tab" it opens in a new tab.

Excuse me, but my Firefox 3.6 just randomly stopped working. It won't let me browse the Internet anymore-- the error message it always gives me is "Unable to connect", even though I'm fully connected to the Internet. Earlier I opened up Safari and Internet Explorer 9-- both, in which, let me browse the Internet, and I had a full connection. But, whenever I use Firefox now, it says "Unable to connect". And every time I type in a URL on it, Firefox gives me the SAME error message. I don't know what to do now. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it does the same thing. So now I am stuck with using Safari, when I really wanna use my Firefox. Why is it doing this?

I had been using the computer for a few hours when I noticed my bookmarks toolbar was not being displayed. I re-added it via the View menu. When I did that a blank toolbar appeared, with none of my icons displayed. The icons are available in Favorites, but don't show up on the toolbar. Also, I cannot add any icons to the toolbar by dragging them from the Location bar.

I already have two profiles created in firefox and i just created a third one and went back to it later on and it is not in the profile manager. I also looked in the 'profiles.ini.text file' and only the first two are in there. I tried to type in the new profile like the first two in the 'ini text file', but it didn't work. I read different articles on this site and mozillazine about recovering lost profiles, but it still never explained how to make it appear in the profile manager. I've seen more than three listed there in a youtube video about profiles so I know it can be done. Can someone please help me, I would be much appreciative. Thank you.
