When I insert a CD no icon appears on my desktop and within a short amount of time the CD ejects on its own.

I am unable to put things in the trash.

This site tells me that my system doesn't meet the requirements to run firefox (as I try to update, after being told my firefox is out of date). I have Mac OS 10:8.

I think that's all... Thanks! Marilyn Olsen

I was recently doing some 'house-cleaning' on my computer, and for reasons known only to the ninny-gods, I delected all my security certificates. Now, when I try to login to gmail, ebay, my bank accounts, or any https:// site, I get a warning message "This Connection is Untrusted." I click the links provided to overcome the security message, but every time I go back to the site I have to jump through all the hoops again. I see a small box that can be clicked to confirm the security exception, but the little box that needs to be clicked to 'make the exception permanent' is always greyed-out. I know I am on the right sites - have been using the links on the bookmarks toolbar for years without problems. This just started after I deleted the certificates.

I have tried everything. Reloaded Firefox (am using 3.6.4) deleted and reloaded the bookmarks, follow the instructions when I get the error message. Nothing works. As soon as I close my browser, then go back online, I'm back to the error messages.

Can anyone help?

In recent weeks Firefox has begun to crash repeatedly and unexpectedly - mostly when I click to open it. I often get the infuriating "well this is embarrassing" message. Most unhelpful. I send you the report of the crash and expect to hear from you as to why I am having problems but nothing happens. I can't find how to locate the "about:crashes" in the location bar. Can you explain this.

My search bar does not work. I can enter text and the autofill works but when I hit enter or click the magnifying glass, nothing happens. (The location bar is working). I can change the search engine from google to other default engines but they don't search either. When I open "Manage Search Engines" the menu opens and I can make changes but then it won't leave and I have to force quit firefox to get back to normal browsing. This is driving me crazy, please help! I've tried restarting the search engine, my computer, modified settings as suggested by other pages, but nothing helps. (Safari's search bar is working, but I don't like using Safari so I'd really like to figure out how to fix this).

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Hi there,

I wonder if you could help me solve the following issue. I've recently gotten fed up with the crashes and rainbow balls that Safari kept generating and decided to switch to Firefox.

So far it seems to be a good decision but there is one issue that still bugs me. There is a certain web page for which Firefox fails to save my login information; it doesn't ask me so I have to provide the info every time I log in. I consulted help and checked all the settings and password saving seems to be working well for other sites, so I guess it's about this specific website's prohibiting password saving. However, the password used to be saved by Safari with no problem. It's not a big deal but I'm just curious if there's a solution.

BTW it's a https:// central authentication website of a major university.

I really appreciate your help.

Best, Aron

Whenever I select the Bookmarks drop down menu, it is so big that it covers most of my screen. Then, when I go to a folder in the drop down menu if I pause at any other folder it opens and is so big that the drop down menu is completely covered. This is VERY irritating and I never had this problem before upgrading to Firefox 5.0. How do I cure it?? I am using a MacBook with a 13" screen

I download MP4 music from VIMEO. When I click the link on their website to download the video it downloads and opens in a firefox webpage. I used to be able to Control click on the open VIMEO webpage window on my MAC and then I could choose "Save as Source" and the video would then save on my desktop as an MP4 file. Now with Foxfire 6.0 when I try to Control click in the window nothing happens. I do not get the little dialog box that allows me to access the Save as Source command.

Firefox 22.0 has 1386 code (as well as x86_64), and the only difference within Info.plist is basically LSMinimumSystemVersion being 10.6 instead of 10.5 as in Firefox 16.0.2. So why can't Firefox 22.0 run of Leopard (10.5.8) with simple changes to Version numbers?

I have an Intel Mac-Mini core duo running Leopard, and an Intel Macbook Pro core 2 duo running Snow Leopard. I'd like to run Firefox 22.0 on my Mac-Mini, just as I do on my Macbook Pro, but with i386 code, which is built-in to Firefox 22.0. Currently I can only run Firefox 16.0.2 on my Mac-Mini, also using i386 code.

One particular web site won't load, and I was previously able to view the site roughly 2 weeks ago. It's a free WordPress site/blog.

I keep getting the error message "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." I've tried deleting all cookies and emptying the cache with no success. I also tried a "DNS Flusher" with the same result.

I've followed all the recommendations on the Firefox Help link and checked the Community and FAQ sections with no luck.

I can view the page in Safari. The web site owner can view the web site using a setup similar to mine (Mac OS 10.5, Firefox 12.0).

Nothing I know have has changed since I was able to view the site 2 weeks ago i.e., I'm not going through a proxy server nor do I have any secondary security or anti-virus programs running.

Any help would be appreciated.
