I have tried twice to upgrade my firefox to the most current (as of 7/18/10). When I did that I was unable to get anywhere on the internet. The message said the proxy settings from my server would not allow it and to make changes. I am using a home computer with Windows 2000. It hooks straight up to the DSL, there is no Server in my house. I am not too computer savvy but tried using the tools info but that just assumes I already know about proxies, servers, etc. I was able to delete the new version and load an older one stored on my computer and have no problems with getting on the net. What is the fix that I can do? What steps do I take. I am not going to hire a guy to do what should be a simple task.

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

When I use Firefox and Earthlink webmail, I receive messages that look ok on the screen, but when I print them, crazy characters are shown on the printed page instead of the actual text that is on the screen. I tried clearing the cache, cookies and temp files and clearing the files in my computer's temporary folder using the "Start>Run>%temp%" method. Neither fix helped the problem.

I have an AJAX web application which is very sensitive to the number of connections allowed by the browser. Bad things happen when the limit is set up low: frozen screens, uncommitted transactions, deadlocks etc.

In order to prevent this I need to check the current value of configuration parameter "network.http.max-connections-per-server" programmatically (i.e. by the javascript code) and reject a request if the limit is too low with appropriate instructions to the user.

I guess it's possible because "about:config" renders all parameters values and even lets user to modify them. However the code behind the page is very complicated so I can't figure out how to perform my task. All I need is a function or method returning the current value of a given config parameter.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I tried to use Google+. It told me that my browser was no longer supported. Then I clicked on the Google search that is set as my home page. It tells me that my version of Firefox is no longer protected against threats. So then I went to a web site that tells me my browser name and version. Firefox is reporting that it is version 3.5 instead of 6.0

I have Firefox 7.0.1. It says this in the Help-->About section of my Firefox. It says I am up to date. However, when I navigate to the updates page online, it says I am out of date. And some websites, like Pandora, say I'm running an old version of Firefox that is not compatible with their website. Any help would be appreciated. Google Chrome won't open Java, Firefox won't update, but IE works fine...how weird is that? What happened to my world?!?

After running MRT update on Windows XP SP3, I rebooted my PC, and CHKDSK found and repaired four bad sectors on my HDD. After this, starting Firefox 31.0, even in Safe Mode, would cause Windows to freeze at the point the FF window appeared. No menus, no toolbars, just the window with the basic frame, but nothing inside it. All input devices were non-responsive, forcing me to do a hardware restart of my machine.

Upon restart, everything else worked fine until I tried to start FF - then the OS froze again.

Searching Firefox support, all answers I could find suggested deleting old (possibly corrupt) profile data with Profile Manager before reinstalling FF - but, if FF freezes the machine upon starting, there is no way to do that.

How do I MANUALLY delete all old profile data, other Firefox data files, and registry entries from my PC so that I can do a clean install of FF 31.0?

NOTE: The information given about my browser under "More System Details" is mostly WRONG. I am currently using the only browser that works - the outdated Orca Browser v1.2 with a Firefox 3 core. It is FF 31.0 that I am asking help with.

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide.
