The virus affects the restore program. when the user tries to restore an earlier version the virus deletes the stub and the html files. what is needed is a federal agency that can prosecute microsoft. as i said before the best defense is to have a dvd containing all the firefox executables so that we can reinstall without having to connect through internet explorer. I am willing to buy this dvd - i think this is better than making a donation. The laptops are now programmed to have a return to factory installed condition. the dvd would come in handy then. it does mean losing several hours of work but that is the price of an insecure internet.

I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

I would get the link and click on it. Then change my password. Then try to use in to login. No dice. Please delete that account as it has become corrupted. I will continue with this one. Please fix this problem before I run out of email addresses.

Sometimes, but not always, I will download something from the Internet. It might be an .exe or a .dmg or a media file. Instead of coming through in a usable format, though, it will arrive as a binary file.

Today, there was a warning about a Skype "bug" that caused crashes. The recommendation was to immediately download a new version of Skype. This .dmg came through in binary - I had to use Safari in order to download the new version of Skype.

I'm unable to find a setting to cure the problem, so I'm hoping you can help me out. Thanks in advance!

I have used Firefox for many years but tonight it is severely letting me down. After restarting my machine a favourite program no longer was visible, Readability, which I rely upon. When I attempted to download it several times Firefox kept refusing to reload it even though I have used it for many years with Firefox, saying there was some kind of a conflict between it and the company. When I attempted to seek help from this Forum, it started asking me for login information which it then repeatedly rejected. So I have created an entirely new login and hope that this one works. At the moment I'm extremely frustrated and contemplating leaving Firefox altogether, which would be a real nuisance as I have many bookmarks etc. It is all set up and I don't want to leave it but will be forced to do so if someone cannot resolve these issues. What has gone wrong with Firefox?

My company has x32 and x64 machines. It's VERY, VERY inconvenient when both installation files have the same name. All other well-known software developers release their installation files with DIFFERENT name. It has became GOOD PRACTICE, and what's more - THE SIGN OF A GOOD FORM to give corresponding name to different platform installators:

Google Chrome Browser: GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise64.msi

Firebird SQL Server: Firebird-3.0.0.32483_2_Win32.exe Firebird-3.0.0.32483_2_x64.exe

7Zip File Archiver: 7z1600.exe 7z1600-x64.exe

The Bat Mail Client: thebat_32_7-1-18.msi thebat_64_7-1-18.msi

And a lot of others. I have read the typical noncommittal answer from Firefox contributor: "Our installators are uploaded at different servers, so you can download x32 and x64 files in your different folders". It's not an answer. It's just rubbish.

PLEASE GIVE DIFFERENT NAME FOR x32 and x64 installators!!!

Upon opening firefox a few days ago,the entire screen was different with no arrows, buttons, etc to move around so I hard closed it. The next time I tried to open firefox it would not respond. I did a system restore which did not work so I went back to an earlier restore point and now my computer states that it has found an error and needs to reboot which is is stuck in a loop doing over and over. At the bottem it states "critical system error found" and says to look into when the computer comes back up which it never does. What kind of program/virus was unleashed? I probably will have to wipe my hard drive and reinstall Windows and all the other programs I had. I am NOT a happy camper to say the least. What did you do, or what did some hacker of your system do? I am using a friend's computer as if the reinstallation does not work I will need to take it in to be repaired so I cannot take a picture of the blue screen that I get.
