Far too many programs are asking to change your browser homepage to their homepage when you install a program. and it's starting to get to the point where programs don't even ask before they change your homepage. How can I prevent anything but me from changing my homepage (i.e. Websites, installation programs, etc.)?

I frequently visit pages where I end up clicking through to all, or almost all of the links on that page (e.g., a chapter list page). I would like to just tell Firefox open all of the links on the page, each in it's own tab.

Many thanks in advance!

I down loaded Firefox 4 as you promoted and lost internet service! Message says it won't work with my OS version. It took me a LONNNGG tome to locate the Firefox 3.6.16 to reinstall, so I am sending this in to help others. www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.6.16&os=osx&lang=en-US Your web site says you will soon no longer be adding improvements to 3.6.16, so I should switch to Firefox 4. How do I do that? I have no intentions of screwing up my Mac by upgrading to OS 5 or 6. I want to stay with OS 10. 4.11. And judging by the other help messages, I am far from the only one. Please fix Firefox 4 to work for OS 4! And WARN people about OS X needs Thanks

Hotmail Frozen in Firefox; Not Frozen in Internet Explorer

I've always been able to use Hotmail in Firefox with no problems whatsoever. And it was fine just a few hours ago. But when I tried to log back in after having had my computer off due to a power outage, I had problems with Hotmail. I can log in fine, but when I get there I can't do anything. It's completely frozen. The only button that will work is the logout button. But upon clicking to logout, it tells me it can't log out. It tells me I don't have cookies enabled, even though I do. I don't have third party cookies enabled, but I've had third party cookies disabled for awhile now and never had issues with Hotmail. I can get into Facebook, no problem. And I can get into Hotmail with Windows Internet Explorer and nothing seems to be frozen there. I just hate IE so much, especially since I'm used to AdBlock Plus. Please fix this if you can soon! I saw in the Windows Live forums that someone else had this issue on April 7 and all the Windows person could tell him was to contact Mozilla. How irritating and unhelpful. I tried restarting my computer to install Windows updates; they installed, but that didn't fix the problem. I have had it fail to sign out before as it does here and I don't recall how or if that was resolved. But I've definitely NEVER had Hotmail frozen while trying to view my messages. I have the stop script thing all the time with Hotmail and even that has never caused anything to freeze, to my knowledge. Thank you for your help! (I tried several times to use the Report Broken Website thing from a Firefox browser, but it wouldn't submit the report.)

My 8 year old uses the computer mormally when I am here. She went on however when I was busy. Our sirname is Swallow and my daughter typed her name into the search bar. Try it yourself and you will see that this brings up all sorts of sites that an 8 year old shouldn't see. Can I password protect Firefox to stop her accessing the internet unless I am present. I don't want to stop her using the computer totally in my absence has she also plays games and does school work.
