Open the timeline and select the footage (Should be listed as Footage - FileName) grab the out point and drag it to the right to add as many frames as needed. Then go up in the timeline and extend the length of the layer/node containing the footage.
Or Select the Footage in the workspace. Under Footage Controls set the Source Frame End to the total length you need -1 (for 90 frames enter 89 as your end frame).

Remember that posts tend to get answered S L O W E R on the weekends..
To change the still image length:
1) Go to your Workspace> Footage
2) Select the Footage Controls
3) Adjust the length on the right side.
(SEE ATTACHED IMAGE)
If you have a video clip, the length is set by the clip duration: You can use the "Time Stretch" options to stretch or compress the duration of the footage. The duration of the clip is updated according to the changes you make to this option. For example, if you reduce the speed of a 15-frame sequence set at 30 fps to 50%, the duration of the clip becomes 1 minute. The frame rate of the clip is not affected. Use frame blending in conjunction with this option to create a smoother transition between frames when you extend the duration of your clip. If you extend the duration of your clip with Frame Blending disabled, the new frames added are duplicates of existing frames. If you enable Frame Blending, new frames are created by blending adjacent frames together.
By the way, there is a REALLY GOOD built-in HELP Menu in Combustion... Jus' click "F1" and do a search for the keyword...

If you're trying to change the overall composite length, you need to select the composite tool in the workspace, select 'output' in the tools, and change 'duration'.
If you have nested composites, you might have to do it more than once for the different compositors.
Hope that helps

No sweat 3datri,
I got stuck on that for a while myself, sometimes the most basic things are the toughest to find in documentation.
