I was having a java problem in Firefox so I uninstalled clean and deleted my profiles folders. I am trying to reinstall but it keeps saying there's already a version open and there are no new profiles folders there. Is there a way to reinstall so this browser will work again?

Customers using firefox (at least on a mac, haven't tested on pc yet) are unable to load our content pages. The pages appear as jibberish (grey diamond framed question marks, etc.). This content loads in every other browser that we've tested. How can I change the format of our website so it loads properly in firefox? Many of our customers are mac/firefox users. Thanks!

I CAN'T GET THE "WHATS NEW" PAGE FROM COMING UP FIRST. I CHANGED THE HOME PAGE IN THE "GENERAL SETTING" IN PREFERNCES, I RESTORED THE "DEFAULT HOME PAGE" NOTHING HELPS.

IF I CLICK IN ANY WEB LINK THE "WHATS NEW " PAGE KEEPS COMING UP FIRST. I THEN HAVE TO "X" IT OUT AND RE-CLICK ON THE WEB LINK FOR IT TO RELOAD. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING. WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING WRONG?

Since I upgraded from Mac. 10.4 to 10.6, Firefox does not seem to be keeping my cookies. All preference settings are still okay. What can I do?

I am running Firefox 3.6.12. I am having to log in to EVERY password site I belong to, every time I start a new session: Facebook, my Wordpress account, member sites of every kind.

Even when I check "remember me," it is not doing so. When I look at my current cookies, these sites don't come up any more. The only thing that has changed is that I upgraded from Mac Tiger (OS 10.4) to Snow Leopard (10.6). Help!

What I did was inadvertently right click my mouse on a graphic and then must have chosen "block images from."

I would like to be able to 'unblock" the images from that source so I can see that member's images in our posting thread.

I am using an iMac with wireless mouse.

Thanks.

Also, when I hit "up arrow key, Apple key and B," still nothing happens. I can delete bookmarks by clicking on the bookmark and clicking on the Blue star and "remove bookmark," but this does not work on expired bookmarks. I'm on a Mac if that helps. Thanks

When downloading a Web page, Firefox includes ALL information on site, plus the Web page. I am forced to eliminate Firefox and return to Safari for saving individual page.

For further info, I have Safari as my Mac provider for the internet, and although I click on it, Firefox takes over when I wish to download a Web page. It saves two files--a folder, in which all kinds of massive-like data will appear, and a file with some of the information I wish to save from a page or two.

I've tried to select only the page I wish to save in several ways. However, nothing has worked until I take Firefox out of "Applications" and put it in the trash basket.

Ideally, I'd like Safari to be my default provider, and I'd like Firefox to be my secondary provider.

Please advise.
