As I indicated above, for the past 6 years I have been listening to streaming audio radio stations on www.republicbroadcasting.org on the "listen live" page, but about 2 months ago every time that I pushed the cursor to activate the Winamp player, or any other player, and I mean EVERY time, Mozilla would crash and ask for a crash report to send to you people. The same thing happens when I try to listen to a previous radio show in their extensive archives. By using Microsoft Internet Explorer, I can at least listen to their live streaming audio shows. What gives? Why did this happen after 6 years???

I want to upgrade from 3.6.17 - Looks like I have to download 7.whatever. Can't figure out how to do it by just clicking something that says "upgrade." Docs say updating is automatic, and will be asked to click OK when upgrade is availabe. That does not happen. Another doc say click help, then upgrade. That is no an option in the help menu. It is great that FF is free, and all that, but it seems impossible to find ANY documentation that is CURRENT and HELPFUL PLEASE HELP.

Sorry Mozilla, but Firefox 4 sucks big time. I uninstalled and downloaded 3.6.17. I've turned off automatic updates. V4 breaks JQuery and who knows what else, so I'll be a lifelong customer of my v3.6.17 version, coz I'm just not going to have established, clean, awesome code killed by the browser! Only I build web apps so I've got to get all my clients to stop upgrading, too. I've been a Firefox guy for years now, but this is the end of my rope. Chrome is pretty good, as is Safari. I guess one of these is going to be my browser going forward.

I have been using Firefox 3.6 and it works quite well, except that a week ago it stopped opening new tabs (when you click on the + sign for new tabs). Cannot find any help in the Firefox help pages. (Before you tell me to upgrade to 4.0, I did that and it crashes at least once a day, which practically never happened with 3.6.) I'm using a Lenovo T510t and Windows 7
