Hi there I'm using Vista and since updating to Firefox 8.0.1 every single time I start Firefox it repeats the add-on compatibility check. I tried starting with add-ons disabled, deleting update files, started with different profile, nothing. Is this a bug and we have to wait for another update or if it can be sorted I would appreciate some help please. Cheers

I run OSX10.6.8. Just dwnlded FF8.1 and everytime I go to open it I am asked about the disk image. But if I delete the dmg, the program won't run.

I just downloaded the 8.1 version. It was a 30+mb file. Previously I ran 4.0. So I drag the new Firefox icon into the Apps folder. It does its merge thing with the old version. Problem is when I click to open FF now, it always throws up this window asking me about the disk image of what I just downloaded. I even tried restarting the computer--but the same message pops up. I checked on your website and it says that I need to "eject" the disk image (i.e. I'm guessing that means the 30+ mb file I just down loaded), so since I don't have an eject option that I can find (except for external harddrives and cd/dvd), I just drug it into the trash. I go to empty the trash and I get a message that that dmg file is "in use" even though FF is completely shut down. So again I'm guessing that means that even though I already merged that dmg file with the old 4.0 version file, if I dump the update file it seems that it's going to mess up the actual revised program file still remaining. I just want to be able to click on the icon in my dock like I've always done and have FF open. I don't want to keep being asked about disk image stuff. Somehow this feels like an easy resolution, but I just can't seem to put my finger on how to resolve it. Thanks for you help.

I enter address to the address line, then press Enter button, either from key-board, or the Enter button on the right of the address line, and then nothing happens. I still have the address in the address line, but sites do not open and nothing at all happens. If I enter site address into the search engine, I have no problems in opening sites. I do not have problems with opening sites from Bookmarks.

On all HTTPS sites, I get this message...

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.adobe.com. (or whatever site... lynda.com, bill pay sites, banks, etc...)

The OCSP server experienced an internal error.

(Error code: sec_error_ocsp_server_error)

 The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
 Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

This happens ever since I updated from FF6 on all sites that use https for logging on... I've contacted most of the sites and they say it's not them... they are all sites that I've accessed in the past and use regularly... now since I've updated FF, they don't work anymore and I've had to use another browser to access these sites... it's a royal pain!

It's becoming very frustrating as each time I close it and continue to type it appears again.http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/412/firefoxerror.jpg/

I am have problems logging onto adcenter.microsoft.com

As soon as I try to submit my user/pass I get the msg:

"Please enable your Internet browser to accept cookies and make sure that javascript is enabled. If you aren’t sure how to do this, refer to your browser’s Help"

I have done various tests to see if my browers does accept cookies and javascript is enabled, and all is good here.

I also have the plugin Java plugin 2 for npapi 13.6.0. (I am running firefox on mac).

I used to be able to log into the site. not anymore. Since then i must have updated firefox a few times.

I have cleared cache/cookies. I have disabled all plugins/extensions. Still can't get in.

What else can i do?

I have spoken with microsoft adcenter, and all they could tell me was make sure i have the latest java, which i have i guess.

Since the 'new' Firefox self-installed when I open bookmarks the window is gigantic. I'm not going to move my cursor across the entire monitor screen to select a bookmark. There's a huge piece of blank real estate in the middle. The bookmark window used to be narrow and concise and easily used. If I cannot fix this I'm moving to Safari. I've been using Firefox for at least 10 years. Help!!!
