I currently have "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately." unchecked. Despite this, the browser continues to switch to the tab upon opening, which has proved to be quite annoying when opening multiple tabs. I've checked it, and unchecked it again in hopes that it will reset

After I installed update version 28 of Firefox, my keyboard does not print the font I strike. If I hit P, it will print numbers, qwerty and all sorts of other fonts. I have tried all the fixes offered on line, uncheck this, hit F9, hit the Windows Key, hit F7 and the windows key at the same time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times with the same result. I have tried to get Firefox 27 again when my keyboard worked but that does not seem to be available anywhere that does not install unwanted software on my pc. I love Firefox and trust it much more than IE11 but this leaves me little choice as to browser. My keyboard works with IE11, Word, Notebook and all other places requiring text. Help!

I have updated to Firefox 8.01, and confirmed that this is the current version. However, both Google and Firefox do not recognize my current verision -- these sites indicate my version is 3.5.7. Why?

I have updated (more than once) to Firefox Version 8.01. When I check Firefox Help:About, it confirms the version number and indicates that this is the current version. On Google, however, when I try to use G-Mail or +Google, gives me a message that my version of Firefox is no longer supported (and provides a link to download the current version). Additionally, Firefox itself, when I tried to use the Help:Submit Feedback menu option, indicates that I cannot use that option until I have first upgraded to the current version. Apparently, although I have upgraded, there is some marker or indicator that has not been updated from a previous version to indicate to websites which version of this browser is running on my machine. I would like to get this resolved, as it is keeping me from doing a few things I would like to do. By the way, I just looked at the dialog box below, following the comment "we've made some educated guesses about your current browser ..." it, too, indicates that my current version is 3.5.7.

Updated Firefox to Ver.8.0.1 ,Firefox recognizes it as such under the Help/About menu. When I tried to install a AddOn, (Which supports Ver. 8.0.1), the AddOn recognizes the Firefox Ver. as 3.5.7 Furthermore I just noticed on this page down below where it says you have made an educated guess about my browser and O/S. This page also recognizes the Firefox Ver. as 3.5.7 So I go to the help/About menu and it says I'm running Ver.8.0.1 Am I missing something?

I have an environment where I open a number of windows for my application to specific locations on the desktop. The "help" features will open a Firefox browser instance with an appropriate local url. What I would like to do is specify the same initial starting location and size for the browser window upon startup.

Is this possible through a configuration or command line option? Is it possible to "lock" the position information that is saved on browser exit? I have tried the starting the browser specifying "-height nnn -width nnn" on the command line but this does not seem to do anything.

Thanks!

I am a website producer and preview pages in Firefox after building them in a content management system (also running in a Firefox window). Often I make changes to pages after previewing the page. However when I load the page again to check my changes, Firefox displays the original version again. Reloading the page does not help, but if I switch to Internet Explorer I don't experience this problem. Everything used to work fine but one day this problem started occurring, possibly after an update. Can anyone help please?

I was searching for a certain photo using Google and when tried to open one of the results i got this hxxp://supportff .co .cc/ where the page offers me to update Firefox. I was suspicious and decided to report it here. It doesn't look like legitimate site, but I'm not too experienced with this subject.

Opening the "educated guesses" section below it thinks i have Firefox 3.5.7 and Windows XP when I actually have Firefox 8.0.1 and Windows 7. Hmmmm :)

I have an old version of Firefox - Version 3.5.7.

I am trying to update to the current version. As part of the update, the system is first loading all of the intermediate versions.

I started the update 4 hours ago. It is still running. Most of the time, it has been downloading version 3.6.18. I am letting it run.

Is there any other way to get the most recent version?

I have updated to Firefox 9.0.1 on two occasions. I am still receiving messages from Firefox and Mozilla among others requesting me to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox in order for my system to function. When I do a Help>About Firefox, it shows that I am using version 9.0.1. What additional steps are required in order for other applications, including Firefox, to recognize that I am using version 9.0.1? Thanks. Rory
