Hello,

I need to run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64 bit but I also need to update Firefox to run the latest version so Gmail will have all of its features.

I currently have Firefox 3.6.23.

I am new to Linux and have not installed many programs, and I don't know what to do to install it. I went to the Firefox website and downloaded the files for Firefox 30.0 (?). I extracted the files to a directory, now I don't know what to do... how do I install the program?? When I checked the firefox about menu nothing happens, the support page says it will automatically update to the latest version if you do that.

thanks! steve

Can anyone help? I have a Mac G4 running OS 10.4.11 with firefox & safari. these are the firefox details; Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.4; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.23) Gecko/20110920 Firefox/3.6.23

I'm having terrible trouble with both, but get a message when I try to upgrade to newer browsers that my setup does not support the upgrades. The auto software updater says there are no updates available. My G4 Mac is a 400Mhz powerPC with 1.19Gb SDRAM. I would love to know how to upgrade the hardware so it will accept newer software! I have 2 identical G4s but only use one, the other was going to be set up as a slave (?) by a techie mate but I don't want this done if it is not going to improve my internet use.

I have a Macbook Pro running OS X 10.7.5. My Gmail inbox is my home page, and every time it opens it says that my version of Firefox is outdated and that I should update to a "modern" browser. I have 15.0.1, so I am puzzled as to why this happens. Thanks!

Hello guys,

changing the src attribute for the script tag dynamically by the use of JavaScript was working in Firefox 3.. and ist still working in IE, but it is not working in the new versions of Firefox anymore.

Following example shows the problem:

test.html

html
  head
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
 <script type="text/javascript" src="fcts.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" id="myscriptObject"></script>
  /head
  body
     <script> change_src() </script>
     <script> test() </script>
  /body
/html


fcts.js

function change_src(){

document.getElementById("myscriptObject").src = "fcts2.js";

}


fcts2.js

function test(){

alert("Hello");

}


The error console says: 'ReferenceError: test is not defined'

I have also tried to create the script element dynamically:

function change_src(){

 var script = document.createElement("script");
 script.type = "text/javascript";
 script.src = "fcts2.js";
 document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(script);

}

The result has been the same.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi

I am currently running Firefox 3.6.23 (hate the latest version reason I am have not updated to latest version) and I just reinstalled my system few months back. I went to play a game today and it said I was missing the Java applet for the game so I clicked find applet and firefox did a look for it and it failed to install so it gave me a manual install button.

I then clicked that and it took me out to the official Java website with the file that FF had failed to download and I went ahead and manually downloaded and installed the java applet program.

I then went back to the game site and when I ran the game it crashed firefox.

I know I have a chat site I use to frequent and same thing when I tried this few weeks back when I went it said it was missing and tried to install it and it would crash the browser even though in the past it worked fine.

What might be causing firefox to crash when running a java applet even though the program fire fox suggested is installed properly.

Thanks Dave

I have been offline for a long time, so nearly every time I load Firefox I get an invite to update. The last was Firefox setup 11.0 exe (http://mirror metrocast.net). I've tried several times to load and at 99% it freezes up. Then I repeat this cycle over and over. I'd like to either skip this update and move on or find a shortcut to load all available updates at one time with no more problems.

This only happens running firefox on OSX, snow leopard. If I go to the verizon secure texting site to send a text message (vtext.com), After filling in form, when I click the submit button, a error message appears that URL www35.vzw.com SSL certificate has expired. If I look at the source HTML this URL is used an event callback. For what I do not know. If I check the URL certificate at Verisign and SSLshopper it indeed is reported as being expired. However, the problem is this. The expired SSL certificate is only reported in firefox on OSX. It is not reported by Chrome, Safari, or Internet explorer on OSX. On SUSE firefox does not report the expired certificate. Nor does chrome. The certificate is not reported as expired by firefox, chrome, or internet explorer on Windows. Why? Here is the code snippet

 var _hbEC=0, _hbE=new Array; function _hbEvent(a,b){b=_hbE[_hbEC++]=new Object();
 b._N=a;b._C=0;return b;}
 var hbx=_hbEvent("pv");hbx.vpc="HBX0200u";hbx.gn="www35.vzw.com";

I just upgraded to Firefox 10 and had to go back to 3.6 because 10 doesn't seem to work on my computer. I have a windows 7 pc. After upgrading, whenever I moved my cursor over a button or link, that link blanks out or a black bock appears over it. Additionally, whenever I try to scroll, the entire window goes black until I stop scrolling.

Every version of firefox AFTER the 3.6 series has problems in dual monitor setups and I want to be able to keep all tabs I had open when I close firefox so when I open again they are there. In dual monitor if I use monitor 2 for firefox (which is the way I use it) the menu blink rapidly when I click on them and make very hard to navigate. What is it with the video setup in win7 I have to use an older version of winamp due to tearing in the second monitor? Have all you companies not fully learned who to implement dual monitor setups properly or is that not really a concern?
