PDFs on Firefox for Mac

PDFs on Firefox for Mac: No matter what hacks I try, it seems that I cannot get the PDF Plugin for Firefox on Mac OS X to work with either Firefox 9 or Firefox 10 beta. I feel like I must be doing something wrong because evidently other folks have gotten it to work. Would be grateful if anyone could walk me through the best way to get this extension working again.

Firefox 8 is missing my magic arrow

My work computer just upgraded to Firefox 8 (which I've had at home for a while and that's been fine) and I can't figure out how to do this one thing it did in old Firefox. So in whatever version I was using previously, I could click on a tiny downward-pointing arrow on a tab (or right near a tab, I don't remember, or maybe right near the back button) and get to that tab's recent history, so I could go back to recent searches or whatever else (the regular Recent History doesn't work for this, as I have multiple tabs open at a time, and the titles appear the same on my internal database). How do I bring this magic arrow back to new Firefox? I really need to be able to view a specific tab's recent history.

Disappearing FF bookmarks

Wanted: same FF bookmark in diferent folders. When bookmarking a URL, Firefox appears to check if the URL already has been bookmarked in any FF folder in the past. If so, FF identifies the previous folder in the Page Bookmarked popup, removes the bookmark from that previous folder and puts it into the newly selected folder choice. Is there any way to force the same URL to be bookmarked in multiple folders (short of manually tracking down the original bookmark, duplicating it, and copying it to the second folder)? This "feature" seems to be URL based, so it doesn't work to change the name of the bookmark intended for the new folder in order to keep the URL from disappearing from the original folder. Win7, Firefox 8.0.1

Note-taking Firefox extension?

Are there any Firefox (or Chrome or Safari, I guess) add-ons that will allow me to make a blank tab that I can type text into? In other words, any extensions that will allow me to take notes inside FF rather than in another program?

Turn two hyphens -- into M dash – and three periods ... into ellipsis … in Firefox?

Firefox / WIN7: I type in two hyphens IE -- and word processor (LibreOffice Writer) changes them into M dash IE – which is what I would love to see happen in Firefox. Alternately, if this cannot be done, is there a simple way to do this with some sort of macro on my puter? Plus, hey, while we're here, can we turn three periods IE ... into an ellipsis IE … ?

Back off, Zuckerberg.

I hate intrusive facebook. My favorite facebook blocker is 3 versions of firefox behind and doesn't appear to be actively updated anymore. What's more, with the latest redesign, FB has a new social plugin thing on other sites that I can't figure out how to block. What's the best way to keep facebook and its assorted APIs, plugins, sniffers, trackers and malware on its own damn webpage?

Chase.com not loading

I have a PC running Firefox 6 as of yesterday. When I try to go to www.chase.com I get the following message: An error occurred during a connection to www.chase.com. Peer's Certificate has been revoked. (Error code: sec_error_revoked_certificate) Googling is not helping perhaps because I am not familiar enough with certificates and how they work. Any ideas on how to use the site without turning off certificates? Is it important to keep them on?

Create a FF sidebar from a folder of bookmarks?

How can I create FF sidebars that contain only the bookmarks in chosen folders? I'd like to 1. be able to choose one of my folders of bookmarks and create a custom sidebar from it that only shows the bookmarks in that chosen folder 2. have Firefox remember these custom sidebars 3. be able to choose any one of these sidebars as my "current" sidebar at any time 4. be able to create individual buttons to do #3 for each sidebar, and be able to put these buttons on my main toolbar somewhere (like the "blue book with the white star" button on my toolbar that brings up the built-in FF Bookmarks sidebar).
