I downloaded 4b2 on to a new Windows 7 machine. I want to download some "older" addons that aren't yet compatible with 4b2. So I downloaded the Compatibility checker addon, plus manually ensured 'extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0b=false' was set in about:config.

When I go to the Firefox Add-On site, I get an error that there was a "connection error" with addons.firefox.com ONLY when I try to download a non-compatible addon (AdBlock worked, for instance, but it's compatible).

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

When I navigate (click on) to a bookmark in either the bookmarks folder or in a folder on my bookmarks bar it remains highlighted when I reopen those folders until I mouse over it again. This happens all the time to the point that I can have dozens of bookmarks highlighted in a browsing session.

I use Windows 7 Home Premium and Firefox 4 Beta 2.

When I try to submit feedback for Firefox b2, I get the following message:

"Oh! So, you want to offer us feedback on the next version of Firefox. Thank you, but you'll need to be on our latest beta."

My useragent is 'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 (x86_64); rv:2.0b2) Gecko/20100720 Firefox/4.0b2'. It seems normal, any ideas?

Pendant l'installation de la Firefox 4 beta5, il y a un problème ("L'opération ne peut aboutir à cause d'un problème interne. Une communication sécurisée n'a pas été libérée correctement."). Après, si tout semble fonctionner, il est impossible d'accéder à n'importe quel site internet. Je possède un ordinateur XP. Le problème ne se pose pas avec Ff4beta4.

FF-beta4.0b6 settings are using/the same as FF current. If I make a change in options, both FF and FFbeta change. How do I correct this?

I have the most current version of FF and the most current version of FF-Beta. I just noticed that both versions are using the same "settings" (options). If I make a change in options, the change is made to both FF and FF-Beta. FF and FF-Beta are located in different folders. Also If I open FF and attempt to open FF-Beta at the same time, another instance of FF opens, not the Beta version. The problem is that FF and FF-Beta have different option settings and seem to corrupt each other trying to share the file.

I am running Firefox 4.0 Beta 6. It tells me there's an update for Beta 10 every few days. It tries to do it and says there's an internal failure. Firefox beta 6 finally opens like it was a fresh install, so my Download Statusbar add-on shows it's welcome screen, my Google settings are not set and I have to login and set them up again.

So, I go to the website to download and there is no beta 10.. the download link's file says beta 6.

Without changing anything, in the last 24 hours Firefox won't open new windows, but will open new 'tabs' if I choose tabs instead. When I close the browser, the task manager will still say that there is a Firefox window open, as will a popup if I try to open Firefox again. Apologies if this was answered elsewhere.. I couldn't find it in the other questions.

I have installed Calender gadget in my Gmail account. I have configured it to show my contact's birth dates. Firefox 4 (and even 3) was able to load that gadget but it wasn't showing the dates.

On the other hand, IE9 Beta and Chrome 7.XX (and their previous versions) are showing it perfectly. Following are the links for the printscreens

I installed the Firefox 4 beta and received the message "The operation cannot be completed because of an internal failure. A secure network communication has not been cleaned up correctly," and I have no idea what that means. Also, I am running Windows XP, but all the screenshots on the website seem to be from Windows 7. I do not know if either of those things is causing my problem. I am not about to change my OS to get the most out of a free browser, so hopefully this can be fixed without moving to 7. If not, can someone tell me how to move back to FF 3.6?

I just installed FF 4 beta & found that it won't run most of my extensions. I absolutely must have these to do my work (esp. Web Developer Toolbar.) The install also replaced my existing FF (3.6), so I don't have that available.

I would like to be able to run both 3x & 4, otherwise I have no choice but to uninstall. :( Can anyone tell me how to do this? I thought it would install as a second app rather than replacing, or better yet give me the option. Seems like this was the way it has been done before.

Any help greatly appreciated! Euda

google is set as my default search engine, it's just that the awesome bar works like one big google toolbar now, instead of taking me directly where i want to go.
