Upgraded to v.6.0.1 but always opens in http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/4.0.1/firstrun/.

How can I clear the message that this is not the latest version?

I've uninstalled and reinstalled from fresh download but message still appears. Problem is only on one user account on my laptop - the other is up to date with no error message.

In previous versions of Firefox, I programmed the browser to prompt every time a cookie wanted to be stored on my PC. I decided whether I wanted to "BLOCK", "ALLOW" or" ALLOW FOR SESSION." Now that I'm using 6.0.1, I not only can not find a way to do that, but I also have to try to live without Google Bookmarks! Too much stress!! Thanks! Barb

When I ran Firefox the second time a tab containing the firefox plug-in assistant was on top. The first thing on that tab was to update the Adobe Flash player. I did this and during the installation Flash player required that I close Firefox. When I restarted Firefox the plugin assistant tab was not there.

I noticed that there were several plugins that needed to be updated. I would like to find that tab or the plug-in assistant.

I have Firefox in the Windowspartition of my computer and in the Linuxpartition of my computer, I have a third partition where I store my personal data, such as my Firefox-profile-map and my download-map. If I don't manually delete "Parent Lock" Firefox won't start saying that there is already a session open. It would be better not to have this parentlock-system.
