On a site I clicked “remember me” and then entered an incorrect e-mail address. How do I delete this incorrect e-mail addresses so that in the future I am presented with only the correct address?

On this site, each time I type the initial letter of my e-mail address I am presented with three variations of my e-mail address of which two are incorrect.

Using Mac PowerBook G4 I am suddenly finding FF not allowing me to have certain sites work. I click on the "Allow" button but it repeatedly says same thing. I click Allow again and again. No progress. I have allowed all cookies and have no other restrictions in Preferences. This never happened with previous versions of FF. Why now and what can I do about it?

I tried to upgrade to 5.0 when it firsst came out. I checked the system requirements, which I thought I'd met:

Mac OSX 10.4 + Intel

When I tried, the program wouldnt run at all on my computer, so I was forced back to 3.6.16.

I want to upgrade, but it seems I cant.

When attempting to organize my bookmarks, it shows me three random pages which are not actually bookmarks and does not allow me to make any changes (deleting them, showing my bookmarks and folders and actually allowing me to organize them). The sidebar only shows the 'all bookmarks' tab. All of the options under the tab including 'new bookmark...', 'new folder...', and 'delete' are greyed out and not available. I can still create new bookmarks in the bookmarks menu or toolbar, but cannot change anything I have already done.

I tried starting in safe mode and my bookmarks and theme still remained - is that normal? Also tried deleting all of my bookmarks while starting in safe mode - succeeded in doing that, but the three random non-bookmarks still remain and cannot be deleted.

I loosed my firefox 3.6 while I loaded version 4.0 which does not run in my 10.4. PowerPC Mac G5.

Happily I was able to load version in Languadoc language which I do not yet understand so English or Finnish version would suit me better.

So I responded to a prompt (while running Firefox 3.6 on my powermac) to download and install Firefox 4. Great! Well, the install and over-write of 3.6 ran smoothly, but trying to open Firefox 4 there was a message saying the hardware didn't support it. OK fine. But now I have no firefox. Where can I find 3.6.16 to install?

The Firefox 4 beta from a few months ago DID run, so this is curious.

thanks

Hi,

After I cleared my history a couple of days ago, I noticed that the autocomplete funtion of the Location Bar no longer worked. I've visited many sites since then, and yet they don't come up, neither do my bookmarks. In Firefox "preferences", privacy, I have selected "History and Bookmarks" for the location bar. I've tried to use Firefox in safe mode, but the problem was also present in safe mode.
