For example, at comcast.net I get the message:

"We have detected that the browser you are using is not fully supported by the Comcast.net web site. You can view this site using your current browser but it may not display properly, and you may not be able to fully use all features.

At kerpoof.com I get:

You must enable JavaScript and Flash to access Kerpoof's activities.

You are seeing this page because you either do not have Adobe's Flash Player installed, or you have scripting turned on in your browser preferences.

I have the latest Java and Flash Players installed with Firefox 3.6.9. In Tools Options, Java script is enabled. What setting needs changing for these sites to recognize my browser?

On the rare occasions when Firefox crashes and I restart it I often end up getting the same problem that led to the initial crash because Firefox tries to restore all the windows from the previous session. I looked in the preferences but couldn't find a way to change this behavior. I don't want it to try and re-open old windows when it restarts, just go to my home page and let me reopen windows manually. Can I set that somehow?

Before the latest update of my Mozilla Firefox, the Firefox Start page contained an internet address box near the top of the screen, where I could enter an internet address and hit go. It also showed the Google search box in the middle of the screen.

Now, after the Firefox update, the Start page only shows the Google search box. There is no internet address box nor an "awesome box," which according to my reading of the new features is supposed to have replaced the internet address box.

Norton alway ate the Google cookie that saved search setting, which is one reason I hated Norton, and I've had Panda Cloud for several weeks, with no problem at first, but now, when I set the search setting to 30 or 50 results, it won't even do one single search with that setting, it pops back to 10 results.

I have use custom settings for history. I have checked accept cookies from sites and accept third party cookies. This problem keep recurring. Why? I check the Google search preferences I want and sometimes one of the preferences gets saved but not the number of results per page I prefer. Or, I get an error message that cookies are not enabled.

It is bad enough having to use Firefox NON-support to begin with. Then to find a fix and have the same problem recur over and over again is ludicrous.
