I have been getting a pop-up for months now telling me to upgrade to at least Snow Leopard. I finally made the leap forward to Snow Leopard and I still can't download the latest version of Firefox. What's more, I no longer can play movies on Netflix. Just get a black screen. Why is this?

How do I move my bookmarks to a left-handed sidebar? The instructions said to go to "view", find "bookmarks" and click on "sidebar". I have no "view" at the top of my Mozilla Firefox page. I had a bookmark sidebar before but it was lost when I tried to alphabetize them. I have recovered the bookmarks but have found no way to move it to the sidebar. Please provide instructions.

There seems to be no way to change the default behavior of the cancel button of the download manager.

I would like to be able to break a download connection without losing what I have downloaded so far.

At the moment to achieve this I pause the download, move the files, then cancel the download. This is messy and has caused me to make mistakes in the past.

thanks for any suggestions.

Whenever i open a new tab, a website opens up, even though i have set a blank page as the opening page. How do i stop this?

When i open a new tab it automatically goes to "http://www.bigseekpro.com/search/dns/anyvideo2dvd/{F8DC2913-2606-401B-8AED-0345AD711130}?q=bigseekpro.com/anyvideo2dvd/{F8… (read more)

This started after i had installed a software recently. I have uninstalled that software now. I even set the opening page as 'Blank'. Also hit the 'restore to default' button. But the problem still persists.

(it doesnt happen when i open firefox, happens only when i open a new tab, when firefox is already open)

How can i change it back to normal? I need only a blank page to open up.

I have implemented the multiple desk top MS feature which allows me to separate different activities such as banking from general work and allows upto 4 desktops each with a separate version of Internet Explorere. However I wanted to use Firefox and have up to 4 versions of this set up with different profiles- one for each desktop by using short cuts set up with name of profile and also -no-remote- on three of the profiles. I can set up four versions of FF running one on each desktop and they will all do self initiated queries. However if I try to activate a link to a web site from say a document I get messgae that FF already running whether it is of not for that desk top. Also if I try to start the Default User it always says that it is already running even if there is no copy of FF running

Never having copied or pasted anything on Mozilla Firefox (or any other site) I am completely ignorant of how to do it! Someone has directed me to his blog and suggested that I forward a large part of the contents to a third party using 'Copy & Paste'. How do I do this? Please keep the instructions simple as my basic knowledge is really basic. Thanks.
