When I go to History in the Tool Bar I can go to Show All History and delete what is there, but even after deleted, if I click on Recently Closed Tabs, some websites visited will still be there, and I don't necessarily what anyone else tha might be using my desktop or laptop to view them. It's a privacy issue, don't you know. I have tried for three days noe and haven't found a way to get rid of them even if I delete all cookies.

A couple of days ago, my computer (mac OS X 10.4.11 PPC) suddenly seemed to stop recognizing that I had flash installed and wouldn't play anything requiring flash - instead a message came telling me to install it.

I uninstalled flash and the installed the latest version for my computer from the adobe website (which is 10.1.102.64).

Computer still thinks flash isn't installed and when I checked plugins I discovered firefox has blocked it telling me the version of flash I want to use is too old (even though the version I've downloaded is the latest I can use with my computer).

How can I enable the plugin on firefox so I can use flash? The 'enable' button on the plugin has been greyed out so I can't press it.

Please help - I'm rubbish with computers so please give any advice in very simple language! ( i have firefox 3.0.4)

I have been running Firefox for over a year. This is on an HP laptop running Vista. This passed weekend, I got a message saying Firefox could not open a website. I closed the browser and shut down the computer. When I tried to restart Firefox the following day, I kept getting errors saying it could not open. I was short on time so I had to use MS explorer. This morning since I had more time I figured I would try to get it working. When I double click on the icon, I get the hourglass for a few seconds, but nothing happens. I went to Windows "Installed Programs" to see if there was a "repair" option but it will only let me uninstall. I do not want to lose all of my bookmarks, passwords etc.

I can still use Internet Explorer to download if I need to.

Recently I received a pop-up from "Firefox" telling me I urgently needed to update my browser. Even though I thought this was strange, I did it, and ever since I have been getting pop-ups when I start up my computer and randomly while browsing. This same message just popped up again from this address:

http://softocheck.org/update?get=bcbd82d0eeef5d229c2163d54195228d

Is there a way to fix this? I've tried going to my control panel and deleting unfamiliar programs. Twice I've had to delete something from an unknown source titles "dofus" (go figure..). At the very least I thought it should be brought to Mozilla's attention.
