  • This problem fails for EVERY Program I try to download.
  • In the download, it shows it has been downloaded. It gives the size, the website where I got it from.

I'm getting an error message from Firefox that says, "Something is trying to trick Firefox into accepting an insecure update. Please contact your network provider and seek help." Do you know what is going on here--what this problem could be? (I do have the latest Firefox version already installed. I have previously received Firefox error messages that say "Firefox Update Failed." However, I already had the latest Firefox version installed when I received those error messages.)

Recently upgraded to 4.0b6 and Firefox keeps on crashing. It starts out by getting progressively slower and slower, then freezing for a few seconds, then just crashes and all tabs close. On restart everything is mostly saved and I can continue working, but it's impossible to work this way. I doesn't seem linked to any specific site/action.

I have spent a fortune on technician to find malware/viruses and optimise my laptop, but it doesn't seem to help.

Why aren't the monospace fonts displaying fixed length whitespace in Firefox 4?

I have written several applications for browser-based DNA sequence analysis that rely on the fixed glyph width of monospace fonts to insure proper alignment of DNA sequences and the protein(s) they encode. Because exact alignment is necessary, the page contents are presented within the scope of a <pre> style directive. In Firefox 4 the space character has a smaller glyph width than other characters, creating misalignment that severely reduces the accuracy and intelligibility of the page. The problem does not appear to be font-specific.

Since the original post I have created a test page that demonstrates the problem here. The page passes in Safari5, Chrome11, IE9 and fails in FF4.

I didn't notice this issue with earlier betas of FF 4 so I guess the problem came up when I upgraded from version FF 4.0 Beta 4 to Beta 5. I don't have this problem on Chrome 7.0.517.0 dev or IE 8.

Just an FYI: My video card is an XFX Radeon HD 5850 running the ATI Catalyst version 10.8 driver.

Firefox 4 on mac 'snow leopard' (10.6.7) won't open new windows - only tabs

I upgraded a couple days ago, and just noticed that I cannot open a 'new' window, only tabs in the original window that opens when I initially click the FF icon. I've tried both command-N and clicking file/new window from the menu. If I right-click a tab and select 'move to new window' the tab just goes away - no new window appears. New tabs open without an issue. I've rebooted, but it doesn't help.

I'm running macbook pro 13", 8g ram/1t drive - shouldn't be resource starved. Doesn't appear to matter what else (if anything) is running. The only plug-in I've installed is Adblock.

My previous installation (3.something - was current) 'lost' all my plugins somehow - they showed in the list, but wouldn't run; I removed them all but it wouldn't let me re-install any (I forget the error). That seemed to all get fixed when I upgraded to 4; adblock installed and runs like normal. Not sure if there is any relation, but thought I'd mention it.

Thoughts?

Firefox for me has been fine for the past couple of years or so. Then all of a sudden about 5 months ago, everytime i would use Firefox it would crash after browsing for about 1 minute. I uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times to no avail. I then got sick of the problem and then used IE till now. However, i heard about Firefox 4 and thought maybe this would fix it. Unfortunately, the same problem occurred! I then heard about being able to start Firefox with add-ons disabled to find any sources of problems, and i've found that the cause if Flash! It is the newest version and always has been, so i don't know what i can do, since Flash is important for most websites nowadays!?
