Toshiba Satellite PC running Windows 7.

Got message there was an update for Firefox. Manually clicked on it. After restarting the computer (as directed) I clicked on the Firefox short cut icon and the desktop froze. Alt/control/delete did not function--nothing functioned so forced the laptop to turn off by holding the power button down until it did so. Waited a few minutes and then turned it on, the monitor never came up--just stayed black. After a second attempt the computer turns on, lights on keyboard come on, but monitor remains black. No problems before attempting to update Firefox.

I am writing this on my Mac, as not way to use the PC with a black monitor.

I have a Mac G5 desktop with OX 10.5.8. My Safari browser was hacked by TH malware, and so I deleted it because it is too old to update to Mavericks.

I am now using Firefox. I see now that the trojan is embedded in my Bookmarks bar, on the drop down menu items. I'm am having trouble resetting Firefox, nor can I get the Malwarebytes that I downloaded to open and run. I have cleared the history, cookies, cache on my computer. I have also deleted Java, MSN, and the old email Mail and its settings from the hard drive.

I'm a low-tech techie. Thank you for your ideas,

I have an Intel-based Mac Mini that really works well despite it's antiquity, but I obviously need to upgrade the OS. I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me whether Firefox will be dropping support for Mac 10.6 soon? I'll spend the $25 for the Snow Leopard install disk, but if it's soon to be unsupported, I guess I'd better save the dough and put the money toward a "newer" used Mac. Hate being cheap, but finances are tight. MANY thanks for any help you might offer!

I use the old computer for one purpose and only go to my bank site... This unexpected update makes me nervous. Once it had updated Firefox told me that my system was out of date ( which I know) and that firefox would not work.... yet it does work... What is going on ? I had no problems before the update.

I can bring my Macbook Pro running Firefox 22.0 on Snow Leopard to your offices on Castro Street. That would be the fastest way to demonstrate the "crash" that consistently occurs. I've been a Systems Programmer at Stanford for over 41 years, and I've written code for which I've received Copyright protection. NOTE: I'm sending this from another computer running Firefox 3.6.28, which is NOT the version that's crashing.

Can anyone help? I have a Mac G4 running OS 10.4.11 with firefox & safari. these are the firefox details; Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.4; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.23) Gecko/20110920 Firefox/3.6.23

I'm having terrible trouble with both, but get a message when I try to upgrade to newer browsers that my setup does not support the upgrades. The auto software updater says there are no updates available. My G4 Mac is a 400Mhz powerPC with 1.19Gb SDRAM. I would love to know how to upgrade the hardware so it will accept newer software! I have 2 identical G4s but only use one, the other was going to be set up as a slave (?) by a techie mate but I don't want this done if it is not going to improve my internet use.

No matter whether I am using FireFox on MAC or Windows my new posted home page is not showing up when I access the domain. The home page in question is only a jpeg image labeled index.html in the prime directory. The jpeg or "home page" is accessible and is coming up correctly in IE. I am checking it on a desktop MAC and a Windows 7 laptop. Again the home page is only one file.

I have two Mac G4 desktop computers and have always had autoscrolling Firefox. Now the feature is no longer working. I don't recall updating Firefox recently, but can't go beyond my current version, 3.6.28 because the machines are not Intel.

The autoscroll is very useful. I have tried checking the Preferences..Autoscrolling is checked. I have tried restarting. No luck. I cannot start in Safe Mode as there is no option for it.

If there is some fix for this, it's not apparent on the Firefox Help Website. So any suggestion that would restore this feature will be very much appreciated. It doesn't seem to be a plug in, or and add on. My feeling is there may be some resetting procedure necessary...but I have no idea how to do that. Again, help to restore Autoscrolling very much appreciated. It worked for years...all I had to do was press the middle mouse button. It could go slow and faster. Now what happens when I press the middle button is that I get my dashboard apps. Hmm.

Thanks!
