I cannot send emails from my firefox server. I just get error messages: 'message could not be sent because connection to SMTP server SMTP.btinternet.com timed out.'

I have no idea what that means.

This just suddenly started happening a few days ago. Very few of the incoming messages are being received.

There is nothing wrong with my internet connection.

Please help! RH

I am running Firefox 3.6.18 on Mac OS 10.4.11. My precious bookmarks have disappeared. I find that the j.son documents in the bookmark back up file are blank. I have tried to access the places.sqlite files in profiles but they appear as jumbled code (some bookmarks from Safari are however there).Does anyone have any ideas how I can retrieve my bookmarks? I'm not technical so layman's terms would be appreciated.

Why do some sites say my browser is out of date (v 3.6) when I am using Firefox 17.0.1 and am on the release update channel for automatic updates?

In Facebook and while trying to access an online support mechanism at HP, I receive messages telling me that my browser is out of date. The HP site identified my version as 3.6, when I am actually using version 17.0.1. At least when I click on Help, About Firefox, it tells me I am using v. 17.0.1. Why does this happen? On the HP site, I could not fill in the online registration info as I was receiving javascript errors, along with the browser outdate error.

Even your own analysis below, sees my browser as v. 3. What gives?

Just recently---about a week,I'm experiencing extreme slowness, and crashes. Also, it seems the computer---an old one, just keeps running or looking for something, even though it seems I'm at the website and it doesn't need to do this? This used to not be a problem, but now it is. From a novices point of view, It just seems the computer wants to keep computing when it probably doesn't need to? I keep getting the two messages: Firefox not responding---associated with the little hour glass, and unresponsive script. These are the message's I get when things get slow and "unresponsive". Hope someone can help. I do try to keep up with the computer maintenance; hard disk, and defragging. But, that makes no difference. I have noticed though recently, that when I do clear space on my hard disk, I keep showing a lot of space can be cleared compared to normal? Thank you.

I am using FF 3.6.18 on XP, Vista, and Win7. Since FF updated itself to 3.6.18, I'm missing all kinds of addon icons. Needless to say, most addons can't work unless the icon there to click. When I went to the [toolbar customize] window to drag the icons back out to the menu/tool/status bars, I find that ALL of my addon icons missing. The default FF icons are there, but all of the addon icons are missing. I have seen lots of posts from people with the same problem running FF4, but it is not a problem only with version 4. Most of the replies given have advised going to the customize window and dragging the icons back out - obviously written by people who weren't reading the question very carefully. Others recommend clicking the [restore default icons] button. They haven't read the question very carefully either. I have this problem on all my PCs, those running XP, Vista, and 7. Yes, I have already run virus and spyware checkers, and that didn't help any of my PCs. Reinstalling the addons doesn't help either. Since the problem is on all my PCs of various OSs, and upgrading to FF4 only seems to make things worse, it seems like a FF bug. Most of my friends who use Firefox have the same problem. Is it a bug, or is it fixable? Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this?

Firefox used to open with my iGoogle homepage when I opened it up. I have created my personal homepage and that's what I want when I open. Suddenly, it started opening with the last page I was on in a previous session. When I noticed this, I made sure to close every page that was open before I signed off Firefox. Still, it will open with the last page of the previous session.

All I want is for Firefox to open my iGoogle page every time, as my homepage, when I go online with Firefox. How do I do that? I think I've checked some box I didn't intend to but I cannot find what it is. Is this something I do through Google? If so, sorry, but this is annoying and wasting a lot of my time figuring out how to make my life 'easier.' thanks.

I have noticed lately that some words on sites I visit are highlighted in blue. When I mouse over them it is an ad for "free games", when I click them they lead to off site ad pages.

This does not happen with Explorer (which I hate to use). I also don't think it was like this a month ago. I have run a scan, and only found tracking cookies which I do not keep.

I have always seen these "blue highlighted" words in news stories on Yahoo and MSN home pages. Maybe I do have malware on my comp. I use AVG free and will NOT install any of the big company anti virus crap. They screw up my games and I believe these companies are the ones releasing the virus's, it keeps them in business.

Thanks Joe
