As I the question says, things were fine before I recently upgraded firefox as instructed. Now I want to return to a firefox that works better on my older macbook that is running mac os 10.5.8

Please can you help, it crashes eveytime I activate firefox, saying something like, there is a problem with the provider. it really goes slow and does not like it. I usually force quit and start again and it works, but this is unsatisfactory.

Thanks jamie

The problem is likely bug 711564 which is related to the Flip4Mac WMV Plugin (to be fixed in Firefox 11). You can disable the Flip4Mac plugin in your Firefox Add-ons Manager, to see if that resolves the problem. Otherwise, you can remove Firefox 10 and revert back to Firefox 3.6.xxx until Firefox 11 is released, which should be in around 6 weeks.

If you are adventurous, you could try Firefox 11 Beta now:
