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.

When I use Internet Explorer and I right click when I am on any website, there is a Create Shortcut option for putting that website onto my desktop.

When I use Firefox and I right click when I am on any website, there is no such option.

I want to know how to insert that option into Firefox for right clicking for myself.

I keep my Firefox up-to-date at all times but the last few weeks Gmail has been telling me that I am using an older version which it no longer supports even though I have the updated version. I was notified that Firefox could be updated to the newest version, which I did. After the update when I opened Firefox it told me that I needed to update to the newest version which I had already done. How can I fix this?

Installed the update 3.6.6 this morning. Ran fine. Shortly thereafter ( and I don't know if this is related ) Norton Internet Security dialog box said system had to be restarted because of a security problem. Restarted PC ( Windows XP Pro all service packs ), started Firefox, got blank page. Tried other sites, same result. IE8 ran fine. I uninstalled Firefox, restarted PC, installed Firefox 3.5.1, now runs fine.

I currently have "When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately." unchecked. Despite this, the browser continues to switch to the tab upon opening, which has proved to be quite annoying when opening multiple tabs. I've checked it, and unchecked it again in hopes that it will reset

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I installed GoodSearch, but I have uninstalled it and no change, so I reinstalled it
