After upgrading to Firefox 9, the browser frequently freezes for a minute or two, turns white and says (not responding). Upgraded to ff10- still does it- only for longer periods of time.

How do I establish which of my Extensions or Add-ons will be disabled before I actually allow a Firefox upgrade to proceed (e.g. Tab Utilities Lite still not working after FF 10 upgrade)?

Although I usually appreciate the frequency of Mozilla's update program for FireFox, I find it frustrating to lose the functionality of the numerous extensions or add-ins that I have come to rely on. Unfortunately, there is no easy downgrade option. Is there some way that the upgrade process could identify and report on what the post-upgrade status of my extensions, etc. would be BEFORE I commit to the upgrade?

Thank you all anyway, but somehow I found the place to change the theme. I can't say what I did, though. I just sort of stumbled upon it. The newer Firefox gets, the more complicated it becomes. I still haven't figured out how to use the app tabs or group tabs. Oh well, this will work. :)

I updated firefox a couple weeks ago, but updating has never caused this problem. I installed a program to help the computer run more efficiently, called "Fix-it Essentials," and that may have caused the problem, though it didn't for the first couple weeks I used it.

So I still can't get to the homepage of many websites and navigate as I want to.

Since I installed Firefox 10.0 when I open my bookmarks I get a side window that opens and stays open when I click on a bookmark. I have to go back to the top icon to close the side window. In the past when I would get the drop down bookmark list that would disappear when I clicked on a bookmark. Is there a way to go back to the way it used to be?

I am using a signed applet, and after upgrading to FF10 whenever I click on an area of the applet it makes the location and search bar unfocusable, on all tabs. Pressing Windows-Tab fixes this until I click in the applet again. Oddly, there is a button on the applet which brings up a file chooser, and that also briefly corrects the issue. Have downgraded to FF9 for now.
