What is so technically difficult about offering this as a selectable option?

I purchased a ticket on this computer from Southwest. In the last 10 days, I have not been able to get back on the Southwest site using Firefox. I've checked the advanced preferences, et al. I can access everything else under the sun, but get an error message for Southwest. I did access Southwest from a work computer. I can't buy a new Mac, so that won't work. THX

I have tried clicking the "check spelling as I type" box under the "Firefox" tab, but I am still not getting spell check on my Office 365 email. (I am getting it here as I type, however, and also when I type into Google's text box, for example.) I don't understand why Firefox isn't also spell-checking my email. I do have spell check on my Office 365 email account with Safari, but I like Firefox so much better. I'd really appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks!!!

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.

Can Firefox 22.0 run on Mac 10.5.8 (Leopard) since it has i386 code?

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.

Are the old "tiles" retained in new Firefox?

Last version, they took away auto-refresh timer on a tab, I still miss that. I used it on a weather page, so I always know the latest weather in a glance. Now I have to remember to refresh the page when I look at it.

I keep getting told my browser needs updating and it doesn't work right on some websites. I have had unhappy experiences in the past trying to update Apple OS and Firefox due to compatibility issues. I suppose I could switch to Safari but I have been using Firefox for many years and would prefer to stick with what I know.

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
