Every time I open firefox, a "plugin check" website opens up. I thought that once I installed and updated all the pertinent updates for the plugins, the website would disappear when I re-opened firefox. However, the page wont' seem to disappear. I've done everything I could think of to get rid of this page. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

(I am on firefox 3.6.17. I cannot update to 4.0 because some of the websites I use cannot support 4.0).

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

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?

I was running Firefox 3 on my system (do not remember which specific version now), and due to all the nags about that version being out of date, I decided it was finally time to upgrade. I installed v25, and suddenly found I could not load web pages. I tried all the support documents I could find, but none of them helped. I installed v24 instead, but same issue.

I removed Firefox and installed using 3.6.17, which I had downloaded previously just in case of problems with the upgrade, and Firefox works again. I have not tried any versions in between yet, so I do not know which version these issues start with, but I know it is tied to 24 and 25 at least.

I've installed Firefox 4 on my laptop but not on my PC because of 2 problems:- 1) Firefox 3 would always ask me if I wanted to retain the open tabs which I almost always do. Firefox 4 no longer offers this option and closes all tabs. Why?

2) Firefox 4 closes all float ins without either asking or notifying me. This not only makes my life more complicated it also prevents my customers downloading freebe offers because they are totally unaware of them. Why are you playing "Big Brother" and deciding for us what we can see online?

Blessed be

There seems to be no way to change the default behavior of the cancel button of the download manager.

I would like to be able to break a download connection without losing what I have downloaded so far.

At the moment to achieve this I pause the download, move the files, then cancel the download. This is messy and has caused me to make mistakes in the past.

thanks for any suggestions.

I like the look and feel of Firefox 3.6.17, but I don't like the look and feel of Firefox 12.

In Firefox 12, there is no menu bar, no navigation bar. All you get are open bookmarks at the top.

How do I get the menu bar and navigation bar back in Firefox 12?

I also have the Miku Hatsune Bathing Suit picture installed on my Firefox, where the picture appears in the menu bar and the navigation bar. How do I reproduce the same in Firefox 12?

Newer is not always better. Some people still prefer old things.

Hello,

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question, but I needed to start somewhere. I recently published my site, mei-vt.net, and one of the CSS effects I have isn't working in Firefox, but is working IE. Firefox is my primary browser and I used it to preview the pages while building the site. The hover effect worked fine in the preview and stopped working only when I published the site to the my web host.

The effect is at the top of the Commercial page (found here http://mei-vt.net/commercial.html). It consists of 6 pictures that enlarge to fill the border when moused over. The original code was written by a freelance web designer and the original copyright information is intact in my external style sheet. The site said the effect was tested and working in Firefox, but it doesn't seem to be working for me.

I will paste the entire style sheet content below that controls the effect and the source code can be viewed from the page. Please tell me what I need to do to make this work in Firefox!

Thank you.

This started after i had installed a software recently. I have uninstalled that software now. I even set the opening page as 'Blank'. Also hit the 'restore to default' button. But the problem still persists.

(it doesnt happen when i open firefox, happens only when i open a new tab, when firefox is already open)

How can i change it back to normal? I need only a blank page to open up.
