For example, if I want to sign into gmail, it asks for the username. As soon as I type in the first letter, it gives me a selection which it stored. Once I made a mistake and typed my password in there which also begins with the same letter. How do I clear the list? Actually, how can I set Firefox so that it doesn't automatically store that information.

A couple of days ago, my computer (mac OS X 10.4.11 PPC) suddenly seemed to stop recognizing that I had flash installed and wouldn't play anything requiring flash - instead a message came telling me to install it.

I uninstalled flash and the installed the latest version for my computer from the adobe website (which is 10.1.102.64).

Computer still thinks flash isn't installed and when I checked plugins I discovered firefox has blocked it telling me the version of flash I want to use is too old (even though the version I've downloaded is the latest I can use with my computer).

How can I enable the plugin on firefox so I can use flash? The 'enable' button on the plugin has been greyed out so I can't press it.

Please help - I'm rubbish with computers so please give any advice in very simple language! ( i have firefox 3.0.4)

I have been running Firefox for over a year. This is on an HP laptop running Vista. This passed weekend, I got a message saying Firefox could not open a website. I closed the browser and shut down the computer. When I tried to restart Firefox the following day, I kept getting errors saying it could not open. I was short on time so I had to use MS explorer. This morning since I had more time I figured I would try to get it working. When I double click on the icon, I get the hourglass for a few seconds, but nothing happens. I went to Windows "Installed Programs" to see if there was a "repair" option but it will only let me uninstall. I do not want to lose all of my bookmarks, passwords etc.

I can still use Internet Explorer to download if I need to.
