Hi Everybody,

FireFox seems to have gone mental on me here of late. I have the Google toolbar and I had it set to where it would open up a new browser any time that I did a Google search.

But all of a sudden that stopped working and all of the search results are now opening in the window that I'm working in.

I've checked every where that I can think of to reset that but I can not find that setting again. The closest I come is a setting that says 'open results in new tab'.

And as though that weren't bad enough all of the search suggestions that normally appear in the drop down menu have vanished.

Today I accidentally discovered that that all of the suggestions are still showing up there when I ran my mouse across the menu box though. It's just that I can't see them because for some as of yet unknown reason the font has decided that it wants to be the same color as the background. Here's a screen shot to show what I'm talking about.

I figure that there has to be a way to reset both of these things but I just don't know where to look for the settings... so any information will be appreciated.
