I have tried all options under tools options advanced update and NONE of them disable automatic updates. Whichever one is selected, at some point Firefox will upgrade without getting user approval, which is complete and utter crap.

I have to maintain an application which must run on Firefox version 3.6, cannot be ported to any later version, and is only used to access the control application.

I'm sick and tired of having to uninstall and reinstall Firefox every time it goes in direct violation of my settings and updates itself automatically. Why even have a setting for this if hte setting is completely ineffectual?

Every time I open firefox, a "plugin check" website opens up. I thought that once I installed and updated all the pertinent updates for the plugins, the website would disappear when I re-opened firefox. However, the page wont' seem to disappear. I've done everything I could think of to get rid of this page. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

(I am on firefox 3.6.17. I cannot update to 4.0 because some of the websites I use cannot support 4.0).

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have 4 profiles in my C:\Documents and Settings\ral\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ folder. I think Firefox opens with eepi9w6m.b117. How can I find out?

I could use C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -ProfileManager if I knew how to make it prompt - howto uncheck the "open without asking" box without being able to open the dialog that contains it.

I've been downloading my Fidelity.com portfolio nightly in CSV format with no problems for over a year. All of a sudden it stopped working. When I click on their DOWNLOAD link, I see Javascript:DownloadCVS() in the status bar, but I get no other visual.

(I can't now recall if I used to get the pop-up that asked what I wanted to do with the file or if Excel just opened -- probably the former)

I contacted Fidelity's web support and, of course, they said nothing changed on their end. I even did some research to learn about the content-type MIME-type mechanism and told them that they may have unknowingly changed the content type and it needed to be text/cvs in the response header. They said they could not replicate it with their FF or IE so it had to be a problem on my end. I also know that IE is not as compliant as FF so the fact that IE works is irrelevant.

I have since discovered a workaround. The file does indeed get downloaded. I just have to click on the Downloads button on the top bar to quickly access the Downloads dialog box and then click on the file. At least that's better than having to use IE to get this to work!!!

Any ideas how I can further troubleshoot and get the old behavior back. I think I tried safe mode when this first came up.

I like the look and feel of Firefox 3.6.17, but I don't like the look and feel of Firefox 12.

In Firefox 12, there is no menu bar, no navigation bar. All you get are open bookmarks at the top.

How do I get the menu bar and navigation bar back in Firefox 12?

I also have the Miku Hatsune Bathing Suit picture installed on my Firefox, where the picture appears in the menu bar and the navigation bar. How do I reproduce the same in Firefox 12?

Newer is not always better. Some people still prefer old things.

Hello,

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question, but I needed to start somewhere. I recently published my site, mei-vt.net, and one of the CSS effects I have isn't working in Firefox, but is working IE. Firefox is my primary browser and I used it to preview the pages while building the site. The hover effect worked fine in the preview and stopped working only when I published the site to the my web host.

The effect is at the top of the Commercial page (found here http://mei-vt.net/commercial.html). It consists of 6 pictures that enlarge to fill the border when moused over. The original code was written by a freelance web designer and the original copyright information is intact in my external style sheet. The site said the effect was tested and working in Firefox, but it doesn't seem to be working for me.

I will paste the entire style sheet content below that controls the effect and the source code can be viewed from the page. Please tell me what I need to do to make this work in Firefox!

Thank you.
