We want to add the Firefox browser to our network client build and managing the various settings (locking down?) centrally or setting defaults that suit our environment would be really useful. Internet Explorer can be managed using Group Policies in Windows so is there something similar for firefox?

I have a Mac Powerbook G4, running OS X 10.5.8. I'm getting messages from Google that Firefox is an old version and needs updating - so I went to the Firefox website and the message said that "Unfortunately the latest version of Firefox isn't compatible with your computer's operating system. Learn more." When I click Learn More, it says that Firefox only works with OS X 10.5 and 10.6...The auto-update box for Firefox is greyed out and un-clickable in Firefox preferences, there's no manual download that I can find - how can I make Firefox recognize my OS and allow me to upgrade? Many thanks.

I have Firefox 3.6.3 on my Macbook, but is only detected as 3.0.1on this form. When I link to the Google font website, it says, "We're sorry, but your browser is not supported by the Google Font API. To browse the fonts in the Google font directory please switch to a more modern browser." So I have to use Safari to get to the page.

I have a laptop that I upgraded: ubuntu8.10 -> ubuntu9.0.4 java stopped working in yahoo bridge. (firefox = 3.0.19) I followed Sun's instructions putting the link to the correct .so file to java6u20 plugin but that did not help. I tried clearing cache. still nothing. I have another PC with firefox3.0.19 and there is no java plugin but there are two flash plugins (1 free, the other non-free) it is at ubuntu8.10 and java is working just fine in that firefox. I have followed all of firefox's steps for enabling java in the preferences dropdown. I can provide more details if you need them.

I am running ver. 11 of Firefox but Gmail keeps saying I am running ver. 3.6. I have disabled EVERYTHING but I still keep getting "Some important features may not work in this version of your browser, so you have been redirected to the Basic HTML version. Upgrade to a modern browser, such as Google Chrome." AFAIC, 3.6 IS a modern browser. Are they doing this just to get me to use Chrome? I am running Windows XP SP3

This feature was in version 3.6.18, why would you remove it from version 5.0! It allowed users to bookmark all the open tabs on the current window and give it a name. This awesome feature allowed the user to save all the open tabs in case of a system crash or power failure or whatever.

I have found this (https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/765179?s=ftp&r=208&as=s) solution, but I cannot get it to work.

When I type about:configuration into the location bar I get the popup saying:

The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.

And the only button available is OK which does nothing other than close the alert window.

This is NOT about updating addons. This message comes up whenever there is Flash content on the page. I DO NOT HAVE FLASH INSTALLED AND I DO NOT WANT TO INSTALL IT. Nor do I want to be irritated hundreds of times per day with this message because I choose NOT to have a SLOW memory hog on my computer.

And, yes, this is an old computer and many of the programs are out of date. I don't need information telling me that I should update anything. I just need to get rid of the annoying popup box. The rest I will deal with later.
