When I ask for http why does firefox sometimes insist on changing it to https?

For example, if I try to get the address http://en-US.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ then firefox changes it to https://en-US.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ and fails the… (read more)

For example, if I try to get the address http://en-US.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ then firefox changes it to https://en-US.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ and fails the connection because "Secure Connection Failed". This happens on most if not all http addresses which, of course, makes firefox halfway useless to me.

When ever I am on my Mac desktop it doesn't recognize the latest version of Firefox. I have deleted and downloaded new version over and over. Websites like Facebook, Google Chrome and YouTube also tell me that I don't have the latest version so change their interface to reflect this. My laptop is fine it's only my desktop.

Currently running firefox 3.0.4. I downloaded 3.6.28 successfully. When I tried to install it by sliding the firefox icon over onto the applications icon I got a message saying an item named firefox already exists and do I want to replace it with the newer one I am moving. I clicked "replace." Then I get a message saying that the operation cannot be completed because I do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items. How can I complete this install?

I reinstalled it several times, deleting the old icons on my application folder, and desktop. Don't know a lot about this but I've never had any issues with mozilla before. I just want it to be up to date. Haven't installed any weird programs lately either and I don't have anything that blocks it.

Every time I go to facebook, a small box above where I put in my status update says this: You may want to upgrade your browser.

You're using an old version of Firefox that is no longer supported and may be insecure.

To upgrade, open Firefox's Help menu and click Check for Updates...

I have updated 3 times and it still gives this message. its driving me crazy.

When some particular sites are visited, multiple proxy authentication prompts are received. After canceling these pop-up windows the page can be finalized visited, we have observed that this issue is happening when Adobe Flash player is involved.

This has been an intermittent issue over the last months, however there is a site that can be used to reproduce the problem.

My bookmarks have not worked in over a month I'm not sure if it was after upgrading or if something else caused this. I'm currently running ver. 15.0.1 on my desktop & laptop & am only having the problem on my desktop. I've tried deleting & re-importing my bookmarks but they still don't work. They display fine but do nothing when I click on them.
