I must have "Active X enabled." How do I do that? (I'm old & don't understand the computer language in answers) ;-(

I have no idea how to even find out if my Active X (whatever that is) is enabled, much less enable it if it isn't. According to the info I'm reading, I have Windows XP wi… (read more)

It's been about a week since I last manage to download from Mediafire. When I click on a Mediafire link, the download link does not show although the page has finish loading. Refreshing the page repeatedly does not help and I've tried the solution to delete all cookies as stated on a similar thread (http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/673873) but it doesn't work either. After deleting all the cookies, clicking on the Myfiles link brings me to Mediafire's main webpage instead. Are there any ways to solve this? =( Please help!

Whenever I download something, especially smaller files such as a .jpg or .torrent, Firefox scans the download for viruses. In theory this is a good thing. In practice, at least for me, it means my browser is locked up for as long as 2 minutes (average is closer to about 10 seconds) while it scans the file that I have ZERO concern over a virus in the first place. Now, it's entirely possible that because I'm not a gaming nerd my computer is "slow" by elitist standards (2gHz is slow?! 2mB RAM is slow?!), but that is neither here nor there; I want this "service" gone and I want it gone now.

For the past couple of days Firefox always redirects to a blank page when I try to visit any page on www.kongregate.com. When I use IE tab on the blank page it comes up with the url "wyciwyg://#/www.kongregate.com" where # is a number that changes occasionally. I've tried deleting my Firefox cache and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox with no success. Kongregate.com is the only site I know this to happen on and this is the first time I've seen it do this before. It was fine two days ago and I haven't installed a new add on in months.

I have an Intel Mac using OS 10.5.8, and Firefox v3.5.17. It works fine and I do not want to change as I like Firefox "exactly" the way it is! That said, I will be forced to update soon I'm very afraid. In looking at and trying to update to the latest version, many conflicts have come up. The update consistently brings me to the wrong version for my OS. So, what version will be the latest that will absolutely work for OS 10.5.8? WHY do I find that 4.0X is best then, 16.0!! is the correct one?

   Why are the versions so vastly separated??  
   Nothing makes sense. Please help before I convert to Chrome permanently! 

Thank you.

I have dual monitors and occasionally set my 2nd monitor as the primary when testing software. On reverting back to use my 1st monitor as primary (using display settings) I find FF disregards the changed setting and always opens on the second monitor. Reboot does not resolve the problem. All other apps open in primary.

Any way to resolve this?

I am running Firefox 50.1.0. Your educated guess about my Firefox version says 3.5.9, which means you can't read it either.

Flickr and many sites say something like "You seem to be using an unsupported browser. To get the most out of Flickr please upgrade to the latest version of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer." I tried everything online to make Norton firewall let in friendly sites to no avail. I know my OS is old, so is my CPU, and memory's small.

Tonight, when I loaded my browser, all my web pages came up without any background color- primarily just text on the same default system color background for all pages- this is fine for some simple pages, cause they load faster, but other pages like Facebook for example, I lose some of the graphical page elements, and that's not good! I'm not sure how this happened- all my pages going kinda `text only' (not totally- some foreground pictures load), and I'm not sure how to change it back- please help! I'm using 3.5.15 on a P4 tower.
