Locked due to age. If you still have a problem, please start a new thread

After doing a search, I will click on suggested websites. It will start to load, then will redirect me to another site that generally has nothing to do with the original search.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling that did not help.

When trying to watch videos on various websites including YouTube, the video screen is completely green. I can hear the audio, but no visual. This does not happen with every video, but it is fairly common for me. When I try to watch the same videos with Internet Explorer they work fine. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Whenever I watch any type of video with Firefox, the audio and video do not sync. They are fine if I watch them in IE but I hate using IE (so very slow). I have tried updating firefox, but I have the most recent update. I have updated Java and Adobe as well and none of these seem to be the problem. It doesn't matter which website I use, all videos do this when viewed with Firefox.

Firefox has arbitrarily disabled IDMcc even though I have been using it multiple times a day for months with no problems. I wish to reinstall IDM and use it. If I can't I will stop using Firefox and go back to IE. I would prefer to stay with Firefox but I will not use a browser that won't let me use IDM which was working just fine.

I have Windows 7, and when I installed Firefox, almost every time I use a drop-down menu, the menu will display for a split second, but will not stay up. Drop-down menus work fine in IE, but not in Firefox. I have to use the directional arrows to select from the list of choices, and this is problematic with menus with many choices. This happens every time I use a drop-down menu, so the problem is not site- specific.

Getting annoyed with "Your Firefox Browser is out of date" notification that hijacks the browser page every time I open Firefox. If I wanted to update I would! I do not want to update. I want to remain on the version I have so HOW DO I STOP the annoying notification alert every time I open a browser window ...to which I have been selecting. "No thanks, I will risk it". I do not want this box popping up anymore. It seems like a bullying form of forcing something on someone.

When watching full screen video in firefox the picture freezes and the audio continues streaming. I had at first thought this was limited to netflix but now see the same problem when viewing flash video sites. Once the picture freezes the computer has to be rebooted. This only happens in firefox. Explorer streams perfectly in fullscreen. The problem began after updating to firefox 3.6 as I had no problems prior to that.

I'd like to install Firefox 4, but also want to keep Firefox 3.6. I test web applications and hence need multiple versions.

Is this possible? If so, what words of wisdom can you share on how to install 4 without screwing up the current Firefox installation?

I have both a Mac (OS 10.6) & Windows 7. I'd prefer to keep 3.6 on both, but only need to install 4 on one.
