Downloaded the latest version of Firefox on my Mac and it won't open as keeps saying that Firefox is already running. This keeps happening even after I log out and re-boot the computer. I don't understand why if I do a download to an existing operation it doesn't piggy-back onto the old one and function. Please help as I have looked at all your Q & A and did not find anything to address download won't work because older version still "running" even when closed. I have Mac OS X version 10.6.3. Thank you.

What the heck does that mean?!

For at least a few weeks yahoo mail has been very slow. It is slow to load the yahoo homepage, but it's worst trying to log into my mail. After I type my email address and password and pressed enter, it can take almost a minute for my mail (inbox etc) to actually load. Then it is also slow signing back out. Have noticed no problems with IE 8.

I am using Firefox 3.6.9 so is my husband. When I go to many sites, I get this error message AFTER it displays the page for about 10 seconds. My husband can go to the same site and it stays up. We have checked my setting against his, cleared the cache and history repeatedly and mine still does it. I am using win7 64 bit and Firefox3.6.9. Please help me get this issue resolved or I will have to go back to using IE which I totally dislike, but I can view the same web pages and it does not go off. Thanks, JoAnna

Does anyone know what Firefox looks at locally on the PC when the "Use System Proxy Settings" setting is selected? It appears to be the default setting, recently changed from "No Proxy" of versions past...

Our company uses a pac file specified in IE under "Use automatic configuration script" - with this new default, does it adhere to the same setting in:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]

Every now and then, when I'm on Firefox it will not respond then the window will fill white and at the top it will say "Mozilla Firefox (Not Responding)".

It responds after about 10-15 seconds but this keeps happening every 2-3 Minutes and is making Firefox unusable to watch videos on Youtube and read other things as when it starts responding it take me back to the top of the page.

I cannot pinpoint which websites this is on but it normally (But not always) happens when I have more than one tab open (Usually on Youtube + SammyServers.com)

Hello,

The problem is actually explained in the title. However, I'll repeat it with some modification.

When I type something in my address bar, I'm expecting to be redirected to Google search results, if entered string isn't an actual web address. That's what I'm used to for quite some time in FF now. As opposed, when I now enter something in address bar, I get this opened: http://something/ Obviously, not something that's much appreciated.

Please check this link before you direct me to set keyword search via about:config, because I think that this is the way it was before, while everything was working.
