I upgraded to Firefox 4 Win 7, but a needed extension is incompatible with version 4 and automatically disabled. I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox until the necessary extension is updated for compatibility with Firefox 4. I have located on my hard drive the most recent installation file, Firefox Setup 3.6.6.exe. I need to know the best way to revert to that version and preserve and transfer all my bookmarks and settings. Thanks!

I had had WOT installed for a couple of yrs. and I had no problems with it and depended on it to help me from going to nefarious sites. Then one day I received on screen that my homepage was a disreputable site. So, I deleted it. This morning I decided to install it again to see what would happen and indeed when I went to my home page, I received the warning that this was a disreputable site. Again, I deleted it but I certainly do miss it.

How do I establish which of my Extensions or Add-ons will be disabled before I actually allow a Firefox upgrade to proceed (e.g. Tab Utilities Lite still not working after FF 10 upgrade)?

Although I usually appreciate the frequency of Mozilla's update program for FireFox, I find it frustrating to lose the functionality of the numerous extensions or add-ins that I have come to rely on. Unfortunately, there is no easy downgrade option. Is there some way that the upgrade process could identify and report on what the post-upgrade status of my extensions, etc. would be BEFORE I commit to the upgrade?

I am having trouble installing a few add-ons. It started when I tried to install the McAfee Site Advisor, and I figured "Ok, maybe it's just a problem with that" and let it be. I didn't know why it had worked on the family PC but not my laptop, but I let it slide. Just recently however, I was unable to install the Amazon Add-on "wishlist button" OR the "Wishlist toolbar." I even went with the 1.3 one that is supposed to be compatible with the new firefox versions, and still nothing.

I am using Win 7 and have just upgraded to Firefox 4. In my plugin section, when I enable a program, the word disabled immediately appears next to the program name. This happens to every plugin program that I have. Thus, when I am using Firefox and the need for a plugin is required, I received a message telling me that program is disabled even though the word enable still appears on the plugin line. I never had this problem in any of the Firefox 3 browsers. How can I correct this problem?

Since upgrading to 4.0.1 I have lost Norton toolbar with identity safe, I have spoken with Norton and they have state that I need to return an earlier version as they have no fix. However this problem is on my laptop XP Pro only. My desktop has same version and every thing runs OK. I have since checked troubleshooting info and noticed that norton extensions are listed on both computers complete with ID but only desktop is recorded as enabled. Can this problem be resolved on my laptop to regain norton ( which works on other PC) or do I have no choice in reloading to an earlier version of firefox and if so what is the easest wy to do this without no loss to bookmarks etc.

I use both Themes and Personas. I'm talking about themes. My present FireFox version is 3.6.17. I'm very happy with some four years of use now! But I really would be frustrated if most of my themes disappeared!

I did a backup using MozBackup, so if FF4 drives me crazy like some reviews I've read. I hope the backup would work.... I'm still hesitant about the upgrade. I can deal with the new features of FF4 well enough but don't want to lose my Themes... I like to decorate! Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can email at My Email

Thank you!
