I have used igoogle as my home page for several years now - without problem. I have added a few gadgets - one of which is Google Bookmarks which has worked fine for ages. Recently it has been behaving strangely - it usually loads when I first start the PC, but after a while if I go back to my home page Bookmarks just shows the title of the gadget, but not the list of bookmarks. Google Calendar gadget also often remains blank in this situation - other gadgets load OK. It seems that csi.gstatic.com is causing this problem. I have tried various fixes suggested on a couple of different forums - none work. Any help?

I keep updating Firefox, but I never have the option to choose my country.

In the search bar, I cannot seem to select a different version of Google...

This seems so simple and yet I can't figure it out. Saw something on character encoding, but cannot find that in the settings.

Thanks!

Quite a few of my addons don't work with firefox 6, and I would prefer to keep them, but my pc crashed and I had to reformat. I don't want to have to go on a 3rd party site, since they could easily put a virus on my pc. I couldn't find anywhere to download it on the site. Thanks

Firefox will not close completely

To Whom:

ever since firefox upgraded to version 5 and now to version 6 I have an issue with the "firefox is already running, but is not responding. To Open a new window, you must first close the existing firefox process, or restart your system."

I have became a master at the ctrl-alt-delete and ending the firefox process, but I have to say that this is becoming very annoying and frustrating (specially when I need to check something quickly on my computer).

I've been an avid user for years. I just looked at Google Chrome and was disappointed with that program because it does not have the features that I have relied on for so long with Firefox.

I've been through the firefox help. I was unable to find the parent.lock file in my profile. I tried deleting my profile and recreating the profile. I have deleted the entire program twice now and reinstalled and basically I am left with the same issue.

I must say the definition of insanity is starting to show. Any additional help / correction would be beneficial. If I need to send you my computer diagnostics I can send via hijack this or any other program you need.

I want to get this resolved so that I can continue using firefox and enjoy using the program.

I tried upgrading to firefox 4.x and was no longer able to log in to several forums. I've heard this problem exist for other members too. So I went back to 3.6 and it worked again. I like Firefox very much and want to keep my system up to date but I need to have access to the forums that I moderate.

The unknown user agent message happens with all higher versions then 3.6. I hope this can be solved or that there is a proper workaround.

Best regards, Paul

Hello,

I really love the idea of FireFox Sync.

However I am very uncomfortable with storing that much personal information on a third party server, even one as trusted as yours.

Is there a way to sync up to my own web server (running linux) or sync up to a network share (on windows)?

Right now I'd be most interested in syncing the password file between my laptop and PC using a windows network share, and not having that sensitive data travel over the internet at all.

I know it is encrypted and everything but security breaches and flaws do occasionally happen and as a business owner with everything stored in my password file I cannot take that risk.

I have the staff available to write a addon to take advantage of this feature, if there is documentation available on how to leverage the sync code to connect to a different server or network share.

Thanks!

I downloaded the update for the newest Firefox for installation on Fedora 11 64 bit Linux. I untarred it to the home directory and found the old version of Firefox launched when typing firefox in the terminal. A search for the old firefox was conducted which was found in /usr/bin, so I untarred the new firefox from /usr/bin as su. After this, firefox will not launch at all. Any suggestions on where to start? Thanks much.

PS: I believe Firefox 3.5.8 was running originally. See more system details for the command line troubleshooting information.
