Firefox says it 'can't initialise' it's 'security component', probably due to profile files' problems!

It's on an Acer netbook, running XP; after Outlook Express 'was unable to open' it's 'message store. Your computer may be out of memory or your disc is full.' (Neither of those is anywhere near being the case!) Sent it's error report to MS but no reply to that, yet. Firefox says to 'check that this (profile) directory has no read/write restrictions' but it's run perfectly well for the year I've had the netbook & I've not changed those settings. Please help, thanks!

I agreed to be a "beta update channel" person a long time ago when I was rarely using Firefox.

Now two things have changed: I am restricted to 5G a month (both up and download). I am switching to Firefox as my default browser.

Someone told me that I need to make sure I disenroll from any apps that relay usage information back to the developers. Because that is one way I can "leak" MB out of my monthly allotment.

Please understand that I am an amateur computer user and this might seem like a ridiculous question.

The bottom line is that I just want the regular version of Firefox, not the beta tester version.

As it did in FF7 the directories and folders randomly change when attempting to save files and this is really annoying.

Does anyone know how to stop this?

Why did Mozilla introduce such a pathetic and useless thing when it doesnt work corretly and is just really annoying.

Can someone at Mozilla take a look into this and sort it out, its not difficult is it to just have a basic setting like IE or Chrome where u choose a drive and folder which stays there UNTIL! u change it yourself.

When I install a theme on firefox, any theme, then it cannot show normally many web sites. It shows them transparent. I can see the desktop behind the browser. The web site is loaded and then some pieces of it get transparent. It happens even on facebook.

When there is no theme, everything is normal. I updated firefox to version 8, but nothing is changed. I even deleted my profile and erase any preference/setting and still when I installed a (different) theme, there was problem again. I have no idea what started the problem at first place, that was long ago.

I have windows 7, firefox 8. Please, help ?

I teach a fundamental web design class using HTML and CSS. We were playing with links and I set up an example where a check mark would be displayed as a background image for the :visited pseudo class using embedded CSS. It worked on an older version of Firefox. It does not work on newer versions. It does work current versions of IE and Opera.

I've included the code I used.

I hope I don't get the "too many characters" warning. I kept it short, less than 100 and it still gave me the warning. The add-on I talk about is the Norton Toolbar. Self explanatory. Why so many FF Upgrades? I moved to FF to get away fr: IE upgrades. FF is far worse now.

I am left handed and after all this time I've lost both the bookmarks icon and the homepage icon to the far right of the screen. Why did you do that, to look like Windows Explorer? If I wanted IE8.0 I would have been using it. And the default search engine is Bing? At least there is a work around to change that. You have really made a mess of this outstanding product.

FF8 is VERY glitchy for Tumblr.com sometimes it does not parse the pages correctly, almost all the time it will not load all the images on a page/dashboard and if I refresh the page it is guaranteed to crash. My guess is that Java Console is not compatible with FF8 for some reason. Anyways since I'm assuming there is no way around this until an update comes out, my question is; is there any way to revert back to FF7? P.S. Tumblr works perfectly on FF7 as I was just using it until I was forced to update.

When i put anything in URL bar it says 'this url is not valid and cannot be loaded'. However searchbar on the extreme right works good. I want that when I enter anything to search (something that is not a URL) in url bar it should search it on google.

I don't have google toolbar or any other theme/addon installled. I googled about this issues but none of the resolutions online helped.
