I have just upgraded to Firefox 17 and found that Norton 360 "Login Assistant" (formally named Identity Safe) no longer works. It does not fill in the username and password fields. It worked very well and did all the right things when I was using Firefox 16. There is probably a quick fix but in the meantime I have had to revert to version 16. Looking forward to the problem being resolved.

I live in Mountain View and use Google WiFi which is provided by Google for the City of Mountain View. For the past few months, they have been having a BIG problem with the corruption of downloads. Even teensy tiny ones. Perhaps you've heard about it since you're also in Mountain View. They have not responded to repeated posts from the forum... I have an iMac running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and I haven't been able to update my software. I go to Lane Medical Library at Stanford to use the Windows machines there. I load whatever standalone software that I can onto a jump drive and install it at home. Unfortunately, some sites (like Apple and maybe even Mozilla!) recognize the computer you're on and only allow you to download software compatible with the machine that you are actually sitting at. This means that I can't reinstall Safari because I can't get a copy of it. And it looks like I might not be able to install Firefox 17.0 either. At least, that's what I'm trying to find out. "We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system." See what I mean? So when I go to the library, will I be able to download a copy of Firefox 17.0 for the Mac and install it on my computer at home? Thanks!

After updating from 16 to 17 some of the extensions that are crucial for me stopped working, got disabled and got listed as incompatible with 17.0. Now when I try to toggle the extensions.checkCompatibility.17.0 boolean into the “false” position, it readjusts itself into “true” after each restart, making it impossible to force those extensions as compatible.

Why is this happening and what can I do to make it stay at “false”?

Unless I'm mistaken it has a resolution of 640x480, Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 MSM8655/1.2 GHz Scorpion which I believe uses ARMv7, Android OS v2.3.5, and 512 MB of RAM which seem to meet the requirements listed. Still listed as not compatible in the Play Store so it requires manual apk installation if you want to use it. Haven't had any issues with it and am looking into what causes the incompatibility.

My Macbook Pro is running 10.7.5 I got an update notice in Firefox and tried to update to v. 17.

I. When I try to move the download to the Applications folder:

(1) If I choose "Replace," I get the error message: "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."

(2) If I choose "Keep Both Files," I get the error message: "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code 0)."

II. Version 16 no longer works:

1. If I try to open it now, I get the error message: "You can't open the application Firefox.app because it may be damaged or incomplete."

2. If I try to throw out the damaged app, I get the error message: "The operation can’t be completed because the item “Firefox.app” is locked."

Can someone help me with this? Thanks!

A few days ago, my good old FF (12) stopped downloading and saving. Actually, in the download screen it looks as if it was downloaded (shows in its full size in the Download screen), but the 'open' option is gray and it can't be found in the download folder. Also, when using 'save as' for web pages, only the html folder (images, etc.) is found where saved, but its 'mate' (the htm file) is not, and the 'open' option (on download screen) is gray. I deleted the mimetype.rdf and the downloads.sqlite files; I disabled all the relevant FF addons, changed downloading folder etc.--- nothing helps. Do you have any idea? Thanks

Please tell me how to permanently disable FF from pinning itself to the taskbar?

Every time I launch FF and then close it, it pins itself to the taskbar. If I wanted it to be pinned there, I would have done it myself.

I haven't used Firefox in a long time, and installed it at a whim to see if there'd been any progress. Wow.

THIS IS BULLSHIT! MAKE IT STOP!

When I check the version of Firefox I have on my computer, it says FF3. However, when I go to various sites, I keep getting the prompt that my browser is not up to date and I may not be able to view it all. when I sign in, I also get the message to update and I have done this several times with no deletion of the prompt. Should I remove FF and then reinstall it? Can you give me steps I need to take to make these prompts disappear? Thanks.

All of a sudden after one of firefox's MANY "updates" I am now getting this error when trying to download to my Desktop which is where I want my downloads to go:

"C:\Users\*********\Desktop\***** could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder."

I haven't changed anything, downloaded any useless plugins that just slow down firefox slower than it already is, and I haven't done anything to warrant this error. I refuse to set another folder because my desktop is where I want my downloads to go. They are easy to delete because they are right there and I don't have to open multiple folders to delete files.
