== I think it started when I switched my downloads to a different folder (on my desktop), but it didn't get fixed when I switched back to the download folder.

Hi, since a couple of days ago, I am having trouble opening a select few webites and get the message that they have timed out. They are popular ones, ebay.ca, BBC, and chapters.ca. I also cannot view the itunes store in itunes, although I am still able to update podcasts. The only thing I did recently to the computer was uninstall norton, and install Microsoft security essentials. I have xp and firefox 3.6.3 I've searched for solutions and have cleared cache, cookies, updated java, ran norton removal tool, removed cookie file, tried no proxy, tried auto-detect proxy...and I am stumped. I don't know what else to try. Any ideas?

This is my 6th attempt to download a 1.3gig movie file. I have already turned off my virus check so that Firefox will download past the 1 gig mark. However, this morning my internet connection failed and the download was gone, though it is not completed to its full amount, just a little over 1 gig.

Is there any way to recover and resume this download from the existing, almost completed file? The server does support resuming downloads.

I can't delete visited websites from my address folder and if I type in a website other websites pop up. I had it set for private browsing but that doesn't work either. I've cleared the history to no avail. I've delete some of the websites if they were in my bookmarks...nothing changed. I had installed "Hide Unvisited" add-on but I can't on Firefox 3.6.3 I don't know what to to, I worked fine before but now it doesn't.

My middle mouse buttone will open from 1 to 4 tabs, all copies of the the same page on a single click.

It doesn't matter if i do a slow (10 sec) click or a fast click.

but on long clicks (if its going to malfunction) it will continue to open tabs as long as the mouse is held down. Other times it won't open the new tab until i let go.

I have this on all three of the computers i use computers (work and home) since 3.6

Every time Firefox opened
