I keep getting "update" messages from Firefox, but when I try to update I get a "corrupt image" message. I suspect I cannot update because I am using Mac OS X 10.3.9 and the update is for 10.4. (I'm currently using Firefox 2/0/0/20.) Is there an update I could use? Or is it time for a new Mac?

This happened

A few times a week

Here is the transcript of a chat with Firefox community member zzxcon May 3/10


You are now chatting with Firefox community member zzxc zzxc: Hello zzxc: What happens when you attempt to download a .csv file? seegal: hello seegal: it doesn't copy zzxc: how are you trying to copy? seegal: pls bear with me I'm a slow typist. Just copy selected text Biolizard has joined the conversation. zzxc: ok - which text are you selecting? seegal: I reconcile my checkbook (spreadsheet this way). I copy the items in my online bank acc and paste it to the spreadsheet seegal: I'm using Firefox /2.0.0.19. Have no problem to do this. zzxc: Which version of OS X? seegal: In all newer version nothing happens when trying to paste- just doesn't paste zzxc: Firefox 2.0.0.x is no longer supported, and hasn't been supported in over a year zzxc: Paste into Excel, from Firefox? seegal: Sorry, I'm ahead... /2.0.0.19 seegal: Yes. I open my bank acc in Firefox zzxc: Which version of Excel? zzxc: It would really help if you could tell me step by step what you're doing. seegal: First re: your previous question: it's OS 10.4.11 seegal: About Excell: it'as 2004 version - the lasat one produced for Macs. The specific version is 11.3.7 seegal: So I open my bank acc online in Firfox (my primary browser). I copy the latest entry in the account and paste it into my Excel spreadsheet. zzxc: so, you copy direct from the web page without downloading a CSV file? seegal: What do you mean by downloading to CSV file? I could export from the https://chat-support.mozilla.com:9091/webchat/getimage?image=sendmessage&workgroup=support%40workgroup.chat-support.mozilla.comFirefox to the CSV file, but the other way around? zzxc: Are you copying your bank statement directly from the web site to Excel using the clipboard? seegal: sI don't use the clipboard. This is a mac. There is no need to do that. In PC it would be yes. zzxc: I need to know the exact steps you're taking to get them into excel zzxc: And I need to know what exactly goes wrong in the latest version of Firefox. seegal: Do you have a mac there with Firefox and Excel? It would be very easy to reproduce. Imagine you open an online bank acc, select some entries , click "copy", than proceed to your already open Excel spreadsheet and click' paste". That's it! zzxc: When this happens, do you get cryptic code pasted into Excel? seegal: As I said before: in all newer versions starting with 3.0 when I go to Excel to "paste" from my bank acc nothing happens. It does not paste. No, I don't get a cryptic code pasted, just NOTHING.

zzxc: what if you paste into MS Word instead? seegal: haven't tried that, the formatting most likely would be lost. Tried that with an other Exc el spreadsheet- it lost all the formating and pasted as continous text.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Pls. see copy of the chat above. THIS A MAC OS X. In older versions, prior to 3.0 I could copy from CSV file on the website Ibank acc) and paste directly to my Excel spreadheet to reconcile my account.

After I downloaded Lion, I ran Firefox 5.0.1. Immediately, I noticed significant layout problems in CNN.com and MSNBC.com. And on Facebook, the friends, message, and notification icons at the upper left didn't work. Nor did entering comments to Facebook posts. Even the button that says "View X Comments" in friends' posts didn't work. For comparison, all of them work fine on Safari 5.1.

I rebooted Firefox 5.0.1 with plugins disabled, and still encountered the same problems.

I installed Lion 10.7 and manually installed Java now the plug-ins checker says I am not up to date. Does Firefox 8 not need this app? I posted this when Lion was released, now I have gone from Firefox 6 through 8 and still no Java 14.0.3 update. Does anyone know how to fix this or is this just an issue because Mac does it's own Java? I have got the latest Apple 1.6.0_29 Java release.

When I get links sent to me in Gmail and I want to view them I usually "press cmd + click link" to open the link in a new window. When I do this in Gmail it opens as a foreground tab even if my default action is to open in the background.

This is not the case in Hotmail or on other site - just Gmail. If I rightclick and Open in new tab then it opens correctly in a background tab but I would like this action using "cmd+click" if possible.

I just upgraded to OS X Lion, and when I went to work, I noticed that Firefox 5.0.1 stopped connecting to the Internet.

It refused to connect me through the corporate proxy (MS ISA + NTLMv2 Auth). After repeated attempt, it would sporadically connect me to http sites but NEVER https sites.

If you need further information, please let me know.

Greetings all,

On my Macbook, I have Firefox and all of my bookmarks are contained within. I am attempting to export my bookmarks from Firefox, and then import them into my Safari browser. I have read just about every Firefox tutorial, and am still hitting a dead end. If I follow the Firefox tutorial, I am led to believe that clicking within the Firefox bar at the top of my computer, on "Bookmarks" (which is just to the right of "History"), I will see a drop down menu, and then I will be able to scroll down to "Organize Bookmarks" When I click on "Bookmarks", indeed there is a drop down menu....but unlike the tutorial, where you can plainly see "Organize Bookmarks", this does not appear for me. I am so stumped, and so frustrated. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all, so much Jeff

On several sites, such as SouthEastern Toyota's site and the Florida Department of Transportation's SunPass site, the site systems will serve up PDF files which simply do not display in FireFox and which do not get downloaded. Earlier versions of FireFox did not have problems with those sites; FireFox 4 and 5 do. Other web browsers, including Safari, Opera, and, over on Windows, IE 8 and 9, have no problems. Is there a fix and when will it be available?
