I had two Firefox Apps, 1 real, 1 alias.... But my machine (iMac 10.6.8) is no longer supported and I don't want any temporary add-ons.

It's time to part company with Firefox for this computer but though I closed both Apps and dragged them to the trash I find I still have some 584 items in my machine. Easy Find and Find any File found them. But apart from a few, I cannot delete them.

Firefox had becoming a hog for memory (1.6 Gb regularly) so this was the final one way of getting my machine in some order. Another problem I found was the pdf converter Mindspark was becoming a nuisance; to my memory I had never downloaded it and I can't entirely get rid of that either.

All in all I am now concerned for my new Macbook Pro, too.

I have tried and tried to update the latest version of Firefox but can't get it to work; Gmail keeps telling me to update and so does pinterest. I am too scared to upload recommended packages too because there's a warning about software packages not be able to be authenticated and a malicious individual could take control of my computer.

I looked up how to find the "private browsing" feature, but for some reason, I don't have a "menu" bar on the top of my toolbar, and when I click on customizing my toolbar, there is no "menu" icon, nor is there the purple mask "private browsing" icon (please see image, and note the lack of menu icon on the top).

I would to get the "Never remember history" feature back on Firefox, but even though I click it, it still remembers history. This is very inconvenient since this is at times a shared computer.

I am currently running version 15 on my home laptop - I have upgraded versions on my work pc and home desktop as well. For some unknown reason, this work. I have tried many, many times to upgrade different versions and non will install. I don't have any virus protection that would be interfering. Also, every so often this version suddenly stops working as well and I have to reinstall this one. I would appreciate any help you can give me. It will say something to the effect that "It can't read the configuration file"

This is completely frustrating. I work with computers on a daily basis and know how to install and upgrade software, etc. so this is most irritating.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I had typed that particular email on other websites, as a log-in, but not on the website and when I clicked in the text box to type in the email address for this (different) website the email address from the previous came up in the drop down menu. I am sure I have never used that email address on that website before. Why did this happen? Is this a firefox setting?

I just updated Firefox from 33 to 36 on Windows XP Pro SP2. It took about 5 minutes. My Linux version 30 nags me about it being old and should be updated but there is no update available apart from "firefox-36.0.tar.bz2". Why can't Linux be as straightforward as Windows? This situation is extremely irritating. While I'm on the subject of irritation, there's the question of the Adobe Flash plugin. The problem even appears on the Mozilla website. Haven't you got a solution?

PS I just realised that I was using User Agent Overrider but it appears to make no difference to the question.

I am currently running an out of date version of firefox (15.0). Its been out of date for a very long time, and is now starting to cause quite a few problems, such as incompatibility with my gmail account.

Whenever I get the box that says that it is searching for updates, it just searches and searches and never comes up with anything. 

I have already done this : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-version


I have also already tried to uninstall firefox by dragging it from Finder to trash, but there is still a firefox icon on the Dock.

I have OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.2
