I have tried all options under tools options advanced update and NONE of them disable automatic updates. Whichever one is selected, at some point Firefox will upgrade without getting user approval, which is complete and utter crap.

I have to maintain an application which must run on Firefox version 3.6, cannot be ported to any later version, and is only used to access the control application.

I'm sick and tired of having to uninstall and reinstall Firefox every time it goes in direct violation of my settings and updates itself automatically. Why even have a setting for this if hte setting is completely ineffectual?

Despite following both Firefox and Flash directions, Firefox won't play videos from YouTube, Hulu, etc. They either never load or they load and freeze within seconds. Before I got the latest versions of Firefox and Flash, I did not have this problem. So there must be a problem in one or both of them. Since I understand from various websites that this is a widespread problem, can Firefox fix this? It's a major flaw in the latest Firefox version.

Firefox crashes unexpectedly when loading some pages. It does not crash on specific pages. It will crash unexpectedly on any website.

I have settings set to send reports to Firefox, but I have never received a response or fix. 

I tried fixing the problem using the knowledge base. It did not fix the problem.

This happens only when I use a shortcut to invoke Firefox. I am running Windows 7 professional. The Firefox window opens after the error message occurs, so I would classify this as an annoyance. Several help postings mention removing "ddeexec" from Firefox registry entries. This worked for a while (it seems to be related to Firefox updates) but now no longer works: ddeexec is removed but the error message still occurs.
