I'm on a G3 iMac. On a "new to me" G5 iMac; I moved Firefox 3.5.6 from the G3. When I open Firefox the G5 says "quit Firefox, Firefox is open, can't have >1 copy open". Firefox isn't open, only finder. What to do?

There was a Firefox 3.6 installed on the G5 by a friend, but my profile was not installed. To be sure of compatibility, I trashed the Firefox 3.6 and copiedFirefox 3.5.6 from the G3 (where it runs fine) to the G5. I also copied my profile. On the G5, I had moved the Firefox icon onto the dock. I checked finder and there is only one application of Firefox on the G5 hard drive. Just now I started the G5; when I had finder, I clicked on the Firefox application on the dock. A message opened saying: Close Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.

I think I asked this question months ago but never got an answer.

Firefox wants to remember my password for YouTube. But it wants to remember it on the Google.com website.

When I do it that way, it ties together Google and YouTube in ways I don't prefer.

I want to keep Google and YouTube as separate as possible.

Therefore I want to find someway to get Firefox to remember my YouTube password on YouTube.com--not Google.com.

How do I do this?

I ask for Firefox to remember it this way because I notice when I look at my current password list that all of them seem to be remembered on the names of their websites (for example: my ebay password is asked by Firefox to be remembered at ebay.com).

Thanks.

But these same parameters don't appear to be present for FireFox.

Is there any way to override a website that trys to disable autocomplete of logons and passwords?

I'm on ff 3.5.5 for Mac. I've been prompted twice to download latest version. Each time I have dragged the ff icon from applications folder to the dock and all seems ok. But next time I start ff it says I'm on 3.5.5 and should update to latest version!

There was no "update failed" message

I wonder whether I'm doing the right thing when I drag to the dock. There's only one ff icon in the applications folder. The first time I was prompted to update it showed that days date next to the icon as if the update was successful. The second time was a few days later but I think it was still the same date next to the icon (25/8/10) I've only just noticed that (on 10/9/10) so can't be sure but I'm sure the second time was around 2nd or 3rd of Sept.

Also, I am running two versions of ff- one is english, the other is the Italian version. They can't be opened at the same time but they seem to talk to eachother in the background, so to speak, because when I open one after a long gap, it opens with all the history and settings of the other one, right up to the last website I went to. I think I closed both when updating because it prompts you to close all programmes and restart (I think/ remember) so I just clicked ok to that prompt.

By the way, I got the prompt to update twice for BOTH the Italian and the English version- so 4 times altogether so it would seem that ff does recognise them as separate but still has problems concluding the update for each separate one respectively.

Thank you very much if you can help.

Does anyone else have the maddening experience of filling in a comment, not just in FB but also in Picasa or any other "modern" interactive webpage, in which your changes are not saved and the page must be reloaded several times, the comment reentered, reloaded, reentered up to three or four times, before the damn thing "sticks????" I am SICK of having to write everything in a text editor, copy it, paste it, reload and then repeat and repeat. This is why people OD on pills. Can't you software engineers take a couple of years OFF and leave us all alone to work and enjoy the technology as it is until you go around "improving" it again and... screw it up worse than it was before??? GO AWAY! Stop upgrading. Enough is enough. Now. How much do you want to bet that this comment wont stick? I have it copied just in case. Stupid.

I keep having to sign in constantly even when I haven't closed firefox and even after I have only been on for about 5 or 10 minutes...Even after looking in the forum then going back to email I had to sign back in.... I have tried clearing cookies and tried editing settings but there wasn't anything that needed changing. Nothing has helped. Nothing on virus scan or spybot, either...This is driving me insane!!
