Firefox widows update 3.6.8 showed size 11.0 MB from firefox auto update. I am on high speed internet connection and normally it took just seconds to update firefox but this time, it took 45 minutes to finish downloading. While it was downloading, I did my internet speed test. It was at 4MB/sec. I later check firefox website, the 3.6.8 file size should be 8 MB. I don't know if my firefox update download is legit. Although, after installation, the new version seem worked file. Any suggestions?

This happened

I just updated to firefox 3.6.8 this morning after getting prompted to update as I started firefox. The firefox update successfully installed page said that I should update to the latest adobe flashplayer, so I did that as well, although that installation failed for whatever reason. I figured that I would update it later. I started watching live streaming videos on a website, and it was working for awhile, but firefox started to not respond. I tried opening up task manager, but even that started to lag and took minutes to open. The problem seemed resolved for awhile, but firefox started to not respond off and on, task manager stopped responding completely, explorer crashed, and my computer blue screened. It wouldn't even get off the blue screen after minutes of waiting, so I shut my laptop down manually. I'm positive that this couldn't have been a virus, since I only visited my usual websites, and I have both adblock plus and noscript installed. As for my laptop now, it won't boot to windows vista. I tried the hard drive test and failed. Now my laptop isn't even able to turn off no matter how long I hold down the power button. It's not an old laptop, so I doubt that it was just time for it to die.

I have always been a fan of firefox, but this is just horrible. I don't know if it was firefox's fault but it sure seems like it...

I'm currently on my older laptop, since my other one is obviously dead now. My broken one had vista installed and again, firefox 3.6.8 version.

I have tried twice to upgrade my firefox to the most current (as of 7/18/10). When I did that I was unable to get anywhere on the internet. The message said the proxy settings from my server would not allow it and to make changes. I am using a home computer with Windows 2000. It hooks straight up to the DSL, there is no Server in my house. I am not too computer savvy but tried using the tools info but that just assumes I already know about proxies, servers, etc. I was able to delete the new version and load an older one stored on my computer and have no problems with getting on the net. What is the fix that I can do? What steps do I take. I am not going to hire a guy to do what should be a simple task.

I just sold a computer that I used to associate with weave, but some of the stuff from that computer is still showing up on my other computers. Is there a way to get that stuff out of the DB, since I no longer care about it, and have sold that computer?

Like, for example, in my "Tabs from Other Computers" screen, my sold computer is still listed as a computer, taking up space. How do I get rid of it?

Firefox 3.6.3 freezes, hangs, crashes, won't terminate, won't delete the stupid parental file when it crashes, I have to use Task Manager to manually close FF before re-attempting. I had less problems with a dial-up connection at 28.8 baud than this! It's practically unusable, and it this continues, myself and perhaps hundreds of thousands of Mozilla enthusiasts will cease to be so, abandoning Mozilla's products. After all, the recent changes to Thunderbird are the worst changes EVER made, virtually wiping out entire e-mail accounts and all of the e-mails contained in them with the stupid IMAP problems and not clearing mail servers. Let me know when Mozilla is dead, it's heading there very quickly. Actually, don't bother, I probably won't care anymore by then.

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

When I use Firefox and Earthlink webmail, I receive messages that look ok on the screen, but when I print them, crazy characters are shown on the printed page instead of the actual text that is on the screen. I tried clearing the cache, cookies and temp files and clearing the files in my computer's temporary folder using the "Start>Run>%temp%" method. Neither fix helped the problem.
