Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?

bonsoir

I need to send my PC to the vendor (FNAC) for reparation. I want to clean my confidential files before sending it. Concerning firefox : how to desinstal it from my PC only, and reinstall it after repair with all the previous parameters and setting already installed ( list of passwords, ...)

said differently, I don't want to cancel it definitly because I use it on another computer and I want to recover it after my PC repair.

If you can help me I will really appreciate

"""Oh! So, you want to offer us feedback on the next version of Firefox. Thank you, but you'll need to be on our latest beta.

To do that, simply go to our download page and install/update to the latest Firefox Beta!"""

Feedback capture: http://i35.tinypic.com/4hs9kk.png

Hovering square: http://i37.tinypic.com/33kd79w.png

Turns out the right-click menu also applies to links and probably right-clicking in general. The crash report thing has happened more than 20 times and the Feedback issue is self-explanatory.

Now a new issue just came up.. whenever I hover over a link/picture/highlighted object it displays a square where text should be. Link provided.

Update: Wow! Crashed again. But here's a copypasta of the report it would have sent to Mozilla. And it says it's b2 but my browser at the top says Firefox 4.0 Beta 3! And I already uninstalled/reinstalled the program from the link that they gave me from the feedback webpage too!

I just upgraded to Firefox 4.0b4, but found the Preferences window is too narrow to show all the content. It isn't resizable, and the maximize button isn't enabled, so there's no way to alter the width. This makes it impossible to set some of the preferences, and awkward for others. I hope someone can help me fix this problem.

Regards,

Geoffrey Odhner

I am working on upgrading the extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/156940/ for Firefox 4 compatibility.

Basically the extensions enhances the website by adding few query fields which are enclosed in the '<td></td>' format. Until FF 3.6.9, there are no issues. But in FF 4, it is ignoring <td></td> properties.

But it works with out any issues on latest releases of chrome and safari
