Today I installed the latest version of Firefox(7.0.1). After I installed it, I had to restart my Firefox. I clicked the 'restart now' button and it closed my browser. However, it did not restart my browser. In fact, it didn't do anything. If I click on the firefox button now it doesn't do anything.

Any help is appreciated.

Hope this made sense. (English is not my native language)

This problem began when I updated AVG to the 2012 trial version. I thenchanged over to the 2012 free edition, but the problem persists, so I think it has something to do with AVG. A scan revealed two trogan infections on the system, which Super Anti Spyware removed sucessfully. I have had this problem for about three days. In safe mode Firefox logs ontpo Gmail sucseefully.

I'm new to JavaScript and even to website coding. I'm trying to populate a form dynamically and am having trouble with FF7.

To start I couldn't even pass the name of the form as an argument with FF7. After simplifying the code to see what's basically wrong I have come to something funny.

In the code below at least the input element gets initiated, but if I just declare a variable then it doesn't!

With IE8 and even IE6 all my original code worked perfect. I could populate the whole form and then change it dynamically.

What am I doing that FF doesn't get?

Thank you.

On the start page it said that I needed to update Firefox to the latest version. So I clicked on update and followed all the steps. I clicked to save to desktop, but there is no icon there and when I go to the start page, it keeps saying that I need to update Firefox to the latest version. Also when I try to play my games at Pogo.com, it says I have a pop-up blocker on and the games will not load. How do I get rid of this? Can't find a pop-up blocker in my tool bars. Is it a part of the Mozilla Firefox?

Recently FireFox often has been causing 100% CPU usage and locks up until it finishes the process (various ones). Clearing cookies/cache didn't help. Any ideas?

Windows 2000 SP4, 1g RAM, Firefox 9.0.1 We keep IE6 and Firefox open simultaneously for 2 different mail accounts. Firefox was always much faster even with 3 or 4 tabs open, but for the past couple of weeks when trying to update a screen the CPU suddenly goes to 100% usage and of course nothing will move until the particular process is finished. Closing one or more tabs does not help. If I close Firefox completely with Task Manager CPU usage goes back down to nil. After restarting Firefox CPU usage may or may not go back up depending upon whether it tries to continue the previous task that was locking it up. It did not do this with Firefox 3.6 but then again it didn't happen immediately after updating to 9.0.1 either.

I have a PC with 2 GBs of RAM, running W2K, primarily. I had avoided upgrading from the Firefox 3.x.x series ( or 5 ? ) because it was my understanding that it was the last one suitable for Windows2000. Not long ago, I got an automatic robot request from Firefox to update, and tried to make sure it was still within the compatibility range for W2k.

I thought that I was getting a minor update to a W2K version, but instead, have Firefox 12, which has totally disrupted my internet activity because it constantly bogs down into barely running, or else freezes up for long periods, and frequently crashes.

I want to roll back to whatever I'd used before this disaster. And if there's any special ways to do that, I want to know how it works. Thanks.

On my Windows 2000 SP3 my current Firefox version is 3.0.19. I cannot upgrade it any more! There are two phenomena: 1.) When using the 'search for updates' function it offers an upgrade to MAX. version 3.0.19. 2.) When I upgrade manually (to version 15) it unpacks the files properly but does NOT start the installer - without ANY error message.

And I cannot find any version archive here to try a stepwise upgrade to e.g. version 5 or 10, unfortunatelly. Isn't there any archive?... Or which problem to you think, I have?...

Thank you for answering.

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.

Latest FF and XP Pro. 2.4 Ghz Celeron, 1 gig RAM. FF will work for a while, then it will stop loading pages and say "Stopped" in the lower left corner of screen. Sometimes I can refresh and the page will load, but 95 out of 100 times I can keep refreshing and it will say "Stopped". Or, the page will partially load and then quit and say "Stopped". I have disabled IPv6 and DNS Prefetching and it is still doing it. IE is doing about the same thing. VERY frustrated. My last PC started doing this and I finally upgraded to a newer one and it was fine for a couple months, but started doing the same recently. Arghhh ... Thanks!

I hope this is the correct place to post this question.. I have a word press website that has been showing just fine for quite some time.

A few days ago, I noticed that the top right header was missing as well as a Clickbank box on the right column in my FireFox browser view.

I looked at a few other sites (not mine, but same basic format and template had been used) and I saw them with the same parts missing also. In IE, however the views were fine.

I checked on www.browsershots.com to see if it was a browser or a computer issue. The views are fine on that site. It appears the issue is in my settings somehow - but I have no idea what happened or how to change them. I updated Firefox to the latest edition (today 9/30) but there was no change in view.

Thanks for any help or direction you can provide.
