When I used to click the drop down radio button it used to take me directly to a website after I clicked on of the the sites I had stored. After updating, when I click on one of my stored websites Firefox remains idle and I have to then click the "go to website arrow" in order to proceed. I would like it so that when I select a website from the radio button, that it will automatically take me to that site as it has done in the past.

Will going from Reader 3.1 to 5 cause loss of any files stored as PDF files done with 3.1?

Presently use Firefox Reader v. 3.1.4. Many files on my desk computer, operating on XP Pro, are stored in PDF files done with the 3.1.4 version. If I up date to the new 5.0 will these old files still open? Or will they be lost?

Worse case if FireFox Reader was to be removed from my computer what happens to these older files that were saved using Firefox Reader 3.1.4?

I am not experiencing any problems now, but the above questions are a concern, especially as this old computer continues to age.

Thanks very much, steelblue xxxx@gmail.com

Firefox won't start even in safe mode. As soon as it tries to load I get the crash report. In the windows task manager 'processes' tab it shows for a second or two then disappears. It also happens to Thunderbird but all other programmes work OK so it seems to be something with the Mozilla tag. I have the latest version of both and windows is uptodate. I use a backup facility and have tried restoring from a previous (working) backup but it doesn't solve it. I've also used windows restore but that hasn't solved it. I'm using exactly the same backup copies on a laptop and that works OK so I'm wondering if the PC registry has been corrupted. I have antivirus running permanently and I've done a malware scan but nothing has been identified.

I have two favorite games whose homepages I saved as shortcuts on my laptop. Before I switched to Firefox, I could start a game immediately upon entering the site. Now, whenever I pull the games up, a column of annoying ads shows up on the left side of the screen, blocking access to the start button for the free game. I have been unable to find a way to remove this column.

When you pasted a link in the address bar and middle-clicked the "go" button, it used to open up a new tab to the new address. Now it only goes to the page in the current tab. Middle-clicking the refresh button (without a new link) still opens in a new tab, however.

My pc crashed and I had to reinstall win. Instead of reinstalling XP I decided to install win7. It looks like it kept a folder with old stuff in.

I did back up my passwords from Password Protector, but I didn't export them ( I'm not sure the version I had before gave me the opportunity to do so, or maybe it was another program I used) I copied some file(s) and saved them to my other drive, but they might also still be on my C: in the win.old folder.

I've been searching the web for 2 days now, hoping to find the site that explained how to backup the passwords like I did a few months ago, but with no luck.

Can someone please help me?
