The past week, every time I click on anything - an e-mail in gmail, something on a website I want to go to, the arrow to scroll on a page, the Mac colorwheel comes on and it takes forever. I finally got so frustrated I switched back to my old Safari. But this is a new problem, and I didn't do anything to the computer to cause it. My internet connection is fine (cable) as Safari works great. So what's going on? (I have version 3.5.9)

Latest Firefox update compatible with Mac Tiger OSX 10.4.11

Firefox notifies me that I'm not running the latest version (I have 3.6.24 GTB7.1) and to download the version compatible with my older system (Mac Tiger 10.4.11). I click on that link and can find nothing that states what systems the version(s) there are compatible with. I have in the past downloaded and installed an incompatible version, a situation to avoid for obvious reasons.

In Safari it is possible to merge several open windows into 1 single window, with each window becoming a new tab within the new window, so you can easily switch from tab to tab. I cannot find how to do this in Firefox - does anyone know if it is possible? Thanks.

Suddenly, Firefox won't download a file from a clickable icon or web address. This seemed to occur after installing HideMyAss. When I click on a download address, or an icon, the page changes, (as opposed to just starting the download) attempts to load (status bar goes to halfway) and then nothing, it just sits there. If I try to download a torrent file, the same thing occurs, although I can download it using option+click. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Doug

Firefox automatically starts itself on start-up every time. I don't want it to. If I want it on, I'll click on it. I don't go on the internet every single time I start up my computer and don't like having to WAIT for it to start up so I can quit it. I don't know why it does this - never did before - and it is EXTREMELY annoying! HELP! I'm on a Macintosh operating with Tiger OS.

My kids were messing with my computer and must have pushed something and everything disappeared. I need to know how to put an address bar (back button, refresh, ect) back up into the top of my window. Part of the problem is that my computer screen is cracked and I can't see anything in my menu easily. A command that would restore the address bar would help. Thanks.

Re: Firefox 4

Dear Mozilla,

I thought that your 'mission' was to provide great products for EVERYONE. If that is the stated mission , then why is Firefox 4 not compatible with MAC OSX PPC ?

Mozilla should not be launching products that are not compatible. There are still many people out there who have old machines. By denying that segment, you are NOT FULFILLING YOUR MISSION STATEMENT.

I went to Firefox because Internet Explorer and even Apple Safari will not support PPC G3. If you are developing a version that is compatible, you should explicitly say that F4 does not work on Mac PPC's at this time.

This action ticks me off no end... Get with the program Mozilla

on osx 4.11, FIREFOX automatically installs updates, then announces this update is incompatible with my OS.

I do not want or approve of IMPOSED-INVOLUNTARY updates. How can I PREVENT THEM IN FUTURE ? There is no feature in preferences to allow me to reject updates ! This is very tyrannical of Firefox.
