I have just uninstalled Firefox 9.0.1 because I simply cannot get on with the way you have rearranged the headers, and I have reinstalled Firefox 3.6 which I like so much but which you say you will not support for much longer.

Why did you find it so necessary to remove the File, Edit, View, History etc. tabs that we have in 3.6?

For me the changes you have made are completely unacceptable, and I implore you to restore the tabs/headers we have in 3.6 in a future version, even if this only an option.

Will you consider doing this?

I successfully downloaded Flash Player again (the older version is all my eMAC OS 10.4.11 can handle) but I cannot play anything. Is upgrading to 10.5 my only choice?

Every time I try to watch a video or movie, I get a notice telling me to get the new Adobe Flash Player. After trying to download it a number of times and failed, I uninstalled the version that came with OSX (as instructed as some point). That did not work.

I then re-installed the version that I had and am still in the same predicament.

I now even have regular sites (e.g. dictionary) telling me that I need to add plugins. When I click on "add" I am always directed to the Flash Player download.

QuickTime says I don't have the proper plugin but my computer says I have 7.6.4 and there are no problems.

The only plugin that shows (無効 - invalid) is Gecko.

Is it not possible to watch anything in this environment? Do I need to cancel my movie subscriptions?

Firefox is not saving one of my email addresses and password (it is saving three of four). It isn't asking me if I want to save it, and there's no "Save" command under tools. I have a Mac OS10.4.11.

On my iMac, a PowerMac6,1, with aPowerPC G4 (3.3) processor (Speed: 1 GHz, Memory: 768 MB) I have used Firefox for years. Current version 3.6.25. When using it, it tells me that it is outdated, won't be supported much longer and I should upgrade. But when trying , it gives me the above message, " latest version is not compatible with my operating system" (but I have MAC OS X 10.5.8, which according to Firefox's web site should be sufficient). Thanks for your help. Albert

I wanted to know if FF3 supports ALL of the HTML5 features. I know it supports some because I can view some HTML5 sites, however, I don't really know what is degrading on those sites and what is not.

I probably will never upgrade FF until Ubiquity is ported. Which is probably never so I will probably never upgrade.

Plugin-container.exe causes me massive problems with hangs, crashes, cpu usage in the 90-100% range and it seems to force the cooling fan to run at maximum constantly. It makes the computer useless as anything other than an extremely noisy paperweight and trying to solve the problem has not worked. Therefore i want to downgrade to a version which does not have this awful thing.

Does the oldest supported version (3.6.0 from what i can see) have plugin container.exe?

I work in an enterprise environment that has various web functions used for daily work functionality. As for updates and security vulnerabilities I need to keep a supported browser on their desktops at all times. I've been searching for a master list of current supported browsers from Mozilla and have only come up with one reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Mozilla_Firefox .

If there is any chance that I could get a complete list of all the versions and whether they are supported by Mozilla that would be great.

Thanks in advance.

i am quite happy with 3.6.25 and haven't updated because when I last tried, perhaps v7 or v8, it told me a number of my plugs in would not work, especially my Citicard virtual card number plug in. It seems like you would want to make sure all plugs ins would work with newer versions.

Also, a comment about the new version numbering. I find it confusing and misleading. It made much more sense to change the leading digit with MAJOR updates and then to use the following digits after the decimals to indicate minor changes. I don't like the new system.

I was unable to log into American Greetings website for merchandisers. When I called them for assistance, they said I needed to use IE. I HATE that program. They said if I wanted to use Firefox I needed 3.6, which I downloaded, but that was going way back. Is there anything I can do so that I have the current version?

I don't want tabs in my browsing. None. I'm sticking with FF3.6 & Tab Killer until someone solves this problem - and I reckon there are a lot of other people sticking with FF3.6 for the same reason.

I want new pages to open in new windows so that the close button top right works EXACTLY THE SAME WAY AS THE REST OF WINDOWS. I want Alt-Tab to switch between my open web pages EXACTLY THE SAME WAY AS THE REST OF WINDOWS. I don't want to waste screen real estate on a Tab Bar I've got no interest in using. I don't want right-click menus infected with tab options, especially when you put the Open in New Tab option in the wrong place back in FF4.

And yes, I AM SHOUTING. This should have been made a valid option years ago.

If you're unwilling to build it in as a standard feature, at least build us an add-on to do the job...

...and you wonder why so many people stick with FF3.6...
