I have Firefox ver 3.6.7 installed and when It try's to update to 3.6.8 - Install fails and with this phrase in a answer box " The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." I have no other versions of Firefox loaded and I am not sure what to do?

It seems to stay in this loop loading and then fails. Note: the green progress bar never seems to make it to the end.

I end up having to cancel the install then Firefox 3.6.7 runs fine. This ver 3.6.8 is running with no issues on my laptop.

I'm editing an html file in a text editor and viewing it in Firefox. Whenever I save an update to the file, Firefox opens another copy of the file in a new tab. It used to only update when I clicked the reload button. I must have accidentally changed a setting, but I can't figure out how to stop this behavior.

This morning I was told to up grade Firefox. I clicked the clickers and It seemed to work. Then I was told to adapt it to firefox. I got as far as the advice to click the end of the yellow bar. There is no yellow bar. Tonight I tried to figure it out. I found the Plug in Check window.- - At the top of the list of plugin the was the Flash "f", a red button, and a note saying "update now" I pressed the red button and the installation .began- - The little green dots ran by again -- No yellow bar.

The flash player seems to work. I can play at least one game- I have looked in the various trouble shooting windiws

Any idea why clipboard contents copied from a web page in Firefox, would not paste into Microsoft Works? I can paste to Notepad or Wordpad, but if I try to paste to Microsoft Works, the Microsoft program shuts down every time. I can, however, paste from IE to Microsoft Works, so it seems to be a Firefox setting somewhere, but I can't figure out where.

In and older version of firefox, I had the luxury of elongating and widening the "bookmark save" window at any time to the full length of my screen so I could rapidly view and select from one of the hundreds of research and knowledge base categories I normally choose from. Secondly, I was able to intermittently and permanently move this window whenever and wherever I wanted so I could move it out of the way to see an important hidden document title or story title on the page". Finally, each of the above two options interacted with the last option which allowed me to create an alternative subject title other than the one offered by default, wherein I could scroll to any part of the page where the actual title or parts of the story line were so I could either type or cut and paste words to create the title, all while the window remained open. All three of these options disappeared, and I used them 99- 100% of the time. Is there an add-on that brings these back.

on yahoo's news site, I get long delays when mousing over headlines, and often get a warning that a script is causing adobe flashplayer 10 to run slowly and may cause crash.

the warning notice gives an option to abort the script, which works to resume browsing. Is this a problem in FF or Y, and what can I do to avert these notices?
