I recently updated my Firefox to 3.5.9 for Google pack, after doing so Firefox would only open in safe mode. So I started in safe mode that one time. Everafter, when starting firefox it always opens a dialog window about safe mode, I click the option to reset the toolbars and restart, and it starts normally. I'd like to make it stop opening with this dialog, and just open normally without asking about safe mode.

Hello! When I search for a bookmark in the "Organize bookmarks" panel by using a tag search, I want to see in which folder the bookmark that I found i situated. I saw there are some extensions that provide this, but they are for older versions of the browser. My version is the following: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100330 Fedora/3.5.9-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5.9

I have two profiles for firefox. But sometimes Firefox starts with the first active, sometimes with the second. The question is: How can I force firefox to use the profile "default" as the default profile on startup when there is no other instance running? When I want to use a second profile in parallel I use the command "firefox -P --no-profile" to start the profile selector.

Hello,

I want to open the link in new window instead of the same window and new tab. I have tried to search and also tried to find the browser. link. open_newwindow in my firefox version. But I think, it's not supported in 3.5 or 3.6 and replaced by the Browser.link.open newwindow.restriction.

Also I want to open the link in new window instead of same window, or new tab from the web application which running in firefox only. Is there any way we can do the same?

Thanks, -Sandip

I am running firefox version 3.5.9 in Kubuntu9.10. I know that version 3.6.6 of firefox is available. I checked automatic update status with the step-by-step guide in your site. When I click on "Help" in firefox, I am getting a total of 7 choices as against the 9 choices shown at your site. The first two and the last three as shown in your site are there. The third choice in my window is "Report Web Forgery" and the fourth one is "Report a Problem". So, how will I update the 3.5.9 version to 3.6.6 version? Although I can download the 9.8MB file at your site, I do not know how to "RUN" it on Linux. Please help.

I've tried installing flash player a dozen times, with both the instructions on the adobe page and the mozilla page. I'm running Fedora Core 11 with Mozilla 3.5.9. I've gotten "libflashplayer.so" and copied it to every "mozilla/plugins" directory on the drive. It does not work and is not listed when I bring up "tools/add-ons." One instruction said to copy "flashplayer.xpt" to the "mozilla/commponents" directory, but the download included no such file and I have no such directory. (Probably pertains to an older version.) I've tried downloading it with the .tar, .gzip, and yum; all with the same result. It doesn't work online and doesn't show up in my plug-ins.

Please make sure there are no other copies of Firefox running on your computer, and then restart Firefox to try again." When I click the ok, Firefox opens up. If I open another Firefox window with the previous one still running, it doesn't give me any of these messages, it just opens normally.
