Default I need some help

I registered because i need to ask people who know what they are talking about. I'm having several problems with my comp. right now. It is a Dell Inspiron 1150- new as of Sept. 04. Here are two of the most frustrating.

-I can not paste the correct information. I recently started to use Firefox/ Mozilla as my browser. I've found it loads pages faster. Anyways, the problem happens when i use IRC. I search for what I want, and click the packet number I need. IRC opens, and I click the channel I'm in to paste what i want sent to me into the text space. Nothing will paste though. It will paste something previous to what I clicked. This is very frustrating since I use IRC to download quite a bit of things. Any suggestions? I'm stumped.

-Also, I can not use my search function. It simply is blank. There is a bar with the heading that says "Search companion" I closed this probably the last time I searched, because I dont need the little dog to help me out. I just want to search. Now I closed it and I cant do a dam thing with it. Its essentially useless to me now. Nothing works in it. WTF???

Thanks for any replies in advance. I know you probably dont want to help the NOOB out.

Default Re: I need some help

Im the only one who uses this computer. Its my laptop i got for "school"

I resolved the firefox/mozilla issue. I just need to right click and get the properties of the link, and the paste command is in that. I'm still stumped about my search feature though.
