I cannot download any exe files on Firefox installed on Windows server 2003. I am sure this is due to Windows/IE security "features". Under Firefox 3.5 you could add a setting to ignore these, but for some inexplicable reason this doesn't work with 3.6. Is there any way to force Firefox 3.6 to ignore Windows/IE security settings? Otherwise, I'll need to revert to 3.5 or use IE.

I have several PCs and support many local business owners.

Neither I nor they need the latest gadgets and gizmos - what we all need is stability and security. I always keep all users on versions of code that have passed from bleeding-edge development into their support and maintenance phase.

I am wanting to download the latest release of version 4 (of Firefox) but missed it due to your rapid switch to v5.

I did several searches and could not find it on your site - can I suggest that it should be there to satisfy your supporters who moved from MS IE due to the dreadful security issues - esp. Active-X over your early-years.

I need to know how to set the zoom option under "View" Tab, shere I dont have to re zoom each time I open Firefox. I have a wide screen monitor and generally, when viewing webpages, the web content on any page is confined to center of the page, and I was wondering if there was anyway to permanently set the zoom preferences without having to change them each time i open a webpage.

IE 8 and 9 has a feature to set the magnification and i set mine to 150% which works perfectly for me. I wonder if Firefox has a similar feature.

First it was the Interactive Radar Map at weather.com refusing to load

http://www.weather.com/weather/map/interactive/Sevierville+TN+37876

All I see is a "loading" animation where the radar should appear for about a minute before being redirected to a page that says "We're sorry. The page you requested is not available. You may have used an outdated link or typed the address (URL) incorrectly. It is also possible that this page no longer exists"

That happens with every Interactive Radar Map at weather.com, not just the one for 37876

Also, I just noticed that Vimeo's video player will no longer load. Here's an example.

All I see is an image where the video player should be.

In my day-to-day work I use 2 languages: English and Russian. But the spellcheck is not detected automatically when I type in Latin or in Cyrillic.

Actually, it works 2 ways: if I have the current spellcheck language set to Russian, then when I type in English - every single word is underlined. This at least shows that I have the wrong language set for spellcheck...

But if the spellcheck language is set to English and I type in Russian - nothing is underlined. A bit tricky if I forget to change the spellcheck language - I get the impression that I write everything correctly :)

I've searched all over Firefox but cannot find the option for spellcheck language to be detected automatically, like in Word, for instance...

Can this be fixed anyhow?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Anyone know how to resolve this?

I cannot play scrabble at pogo.com using Firefox due to frame too small and blocking part of the game. I have no problem when using other browsers. This started a few weeks ago.

When the game begins to load the outline or frame suddenly becomes smaller and when the scrabble game is added the lower portion of the game does not show. You can only see the top part of the scrabble tiles and cannot see any of the items that go below the rack of letters such as the Play button and other essential parts of the game. This happens every time I try to play, resulting in switching browsers and starting another game.

I have played many scrabble games on this site using Firefox prior to this. My computer screen is 15.6" and more than sufficient. I can use Chrome and Internet Explorer with no problem.

1-1-2011 Since posting, I have found that Chrome is now shrinking the size of the pop up window as well, right before my eyes as does Firefox. Yet I can play on IE8 because the pop up remains large.

The bottom line is: I am using Adblock plus with Firefox and Chrome. Obviously pogo.com makes no money if you can block their ads and are now preventing you from playing if you block them.

1-2-2011 I was wrong. I disabled Adblock Plus for the pogo scrabble site and although the pop up window for the game did not change its size before adding the game and remained large, the lower part of the game still was cut off. The game is still unplayable using Firefox but works well in Internet Explorer.

Pogo uses Java script and not Adobe Flash so there may be an add-on update available.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

January 4, 2011 Problem Solved thanks to the help I received here!

Under Firefox Tools > Options > Content Enable Java Script (already checked) > advanced Unchecked "Move or resize existing windows" and "Raise or lower windows"

When trying again to play scrabble on the pogo site the window was back to its normal size, but the game was still cut off at the bottom with space below.

Although I had tried many times before, this time, by clicking on a blank space to the left of the board, I was able to use my Control and Plus keys to enlarge and fill the window!

To prevent this from happening again, I knew I needed to correct the problem I had from the beginning with my Windows 7 laptop, which was constant resizing of text, etc. every time my fingers would touch the touch-pad in a certain way. A google-search resulted in the solution: unchecking "enable pinch zoom".

Thanks for all the good help!

I was on my Facebook page and the "crossbar" for shrinking or enlarging the page appeared for no reason. Then all of a sudden the page shrunk so small I can't even read it.

Also, sometimes when I am either e-mailing or posting, the cursor disappears. No matter how much I move around the keypad, it never re-appears. I've tried task manager and the cursor re-appears, but is frozen. The only way I can unlock it is to manually turn my computer off and re-start it.

The main welcome page is in French but I want everything in English! I found a feature in "tools" where I can set my preferred languages, and I chose the 3 languages I use daily: English, German, French. But suddently, in the middle, everything switches back into French. It is quite simply annoying. NB: I live in Geneva, Switzerland, an internationsl city, where lots and lots of people ONLY speak English, but the country has 3 official langues, which are French, German and Italian.
