I have noticed recently that Firefox is taking upwards of 20sec. to load pages and often cannot find the server(I have to reload the page). I did not realize how low it had gotten until I start using safari and it seemed so fast in comparison. Does anyone know what is going on? Also, I have read a DIY fix on another conversation which states to fix the problem "To disable OCSP go to about:config from firefox and change security.OCSP.enabled to be 0. " Is this the fix? and is it safe? Does mozilla field any of these questions or is it all user help?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Not sure when specifically as I try to use firefox exclusively

I updated Firefox on my daughter's account, which is in French, then went back to my own account, which is in English on the same Mac OS X Version 10.5.8 computer, and opened Firefox. It had updated there as well, but in French, and it won't go back to English. I even deleted French as an option in the Preferences-Contents-Languages option page, and restarted the computer. Still loads in French. My kids know French, but I don't, so this is a pain in the butt. How do I fix this?

I try to log onto my bank with the new Fox fire and I continually get this error. I have looked through your list and can find no way to fix this. I have tried to go back and download Fox Fire 3.6 but can't find it. It worked with the last fox fire, but not the new. I really like the look of the new, but if I can't access my bank information it is hard for me to use foxfire.

I did this before and it worked perfectly, but I had a major problem and had to reinstall my OS. The default setting (starting with 3.6?) drives me crazy and I want all newly opened tabs to report to the end of the line. I found the solution on (this?) forum (last year?) but could not find it in a search (thread deleted?). I would rather not download and use the add-on New tabs do not appear to the right of the last tab since I know it is a simple 1/0 setting in the Firefox core settings. How do I get there and do this?

I am using Mac OS 10.5 and Firefox 4

When I try to enter my user ID & password into certain sites, I get the message: Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. - and 400 Bad Request appears on the tab. This seemed to have begun occurring around the time I disabled most of my plug-ins to troubleshoot another problem I was having. Enabling the plug-ins again did not help this new problem. I've just uninstalled ff, dumped my profile, reinstalled and still have the same problem! Any help out there?

I want to click on any link, without using any keys like shift, and always have it open in a new window, making that new window active. I know that shift clicking on a link opens it in a new, active window, but I want to do that just by left clicking, not bringing up a contextual menu. Firefox 4.0 Mac OS 10.5.8

Thanks for your help.

I have an Intel Mac using OS 10.5.8, and Firefox v3.5.17. It works fine and I do not want to change as I like Firefox "exactly" the way it is! That said, I will be forced to update soon I'm very afraid. In looking at and trying to update to the latest version, many conflicts have come up. The update consistently brings me to the wrong version for my OS. So, what version will be the latest that will absolutely work for OS 10.5.8? WHY do I find that 4.0X is best then, 16.0!! is the correct one?

   Why are the versions so vastly separated??  
   Nothing makes sense. Please help before I convert to Chrome permanently! 

Thank you.

It seems that after installing firefox 4 I cannot use my MacBook Pro touchpad (trackpad) for zooming in or out the page anymore, as I used to do in the previous versions of Firefox.

Many people are used to use their touchpads for zooming, instead of clicking the Cmnd +/-, and its one of the basic touchpad functions that we have on our MacBooks, and many apps are using it.
