When I click on the plus sign to get a new tab it is not responding so I have to open up an entire new mozilla window if I want to look at mulitple websites at a time. I have restarted my computer several times and this has not helped. I would appreciate any advice anyone has and I would prefer to work with one browser open and have access to multiple tabs. Also, if I click a link on a website that will open a new tab but I cannot not open one by clicking the plus sign or the clicking new tab on the drop down menu.

I updated to FF 4.xx and lost my Download Helper. I also had a lot of memory and lockup problems. I uninstalled FF 4 and went back to FF 3.6.17. Now I cannot reinstall Download Helper. I keep getting and error near the end of the install. The error reads as follows.

Firefox could not install the file at http://releases.mozilla.org/pub,mozilla.org/addons/3003/videos_downloadhelper=4.9.3-sm+fx.xpi

Because: Unexpected installation error Review the error Console Log for more details. -203

I went and found the error log and it said to clear my cache and or wait a few hours and try again. It's been several weeks and I still can't install it. I tried to uninstall Download Helper completely and reinstall and get the same error.

Also, once in a while when I start FF it asks me to upgrade Download Helper which leads me to believe it is seeing it. If I allow it to upgrade the same error occurs. I'm baffled!

Firefox and add ons have been working fine. Following a crash I am now informed that Too Many Tabs 1.3.6 is not compatible with Firefox 3.6.18 . I don't want to upgrade because, usually, numerous add ons fail to work with upgrades and an upgrade tends to be a retrograde step as regards add ons. Firefox usually issues new versions prematurely, and tends to put the cart before the horse as regards add ons. They can't patiently wait until add ons are ready and compatible.

I have a four-line toolbar. The fourth line is completely empty, so I'd like to remove it. I tried right-clicking to pull up a menu, but nothing appears. How can I remove this empty line? The empty line appeared just now after I disabled a Bing toolbar. I probably will eventually uninstall the Bing toolbar, but I hope the empty line is not there until I do that. Thanks much.

First and foremost, I'd like to clarify that I hardly have any technical knowledge. So pardon me if this comes across as a silly question to the professionals. Here are the details pertaining to this problem as per the best of my limited knowledge:

I'm currently using Mozilla Firefox 3.6.18; previously it was 3.6.13. It was updated to 3.6.13 from 3.6.9 after I clicked on Check for Updates... and it told me that it'd be done when I reboot my system. When I restarted my PC, I was surprised to find that it was downloading the version 3.6.18. I didn't know how much it'd progressed in the process, so I let it finish it. After that, I disabled the option that enables it to download and update on its own, and turned it off. Next time when I started it, it was 3.6.18, but wasn't updating on its own anymore.

Now I wanna update it directly to the latest version 5.0.1. But when I leave it to "Automatically download and install the update" option under Tools>Options>Advanced>Update, it downloads and updates the versions as per their release order. So if I leave it to it, then when I start it next time, it'll start downloading the version next to 3.6.18 and update to it instead of updating directly to 5.0.1. It'll keep doing so until it reaches there. For reasons of my own, I don't like that. So I unchecked the "Automatically download and install the update" option and chose the "Ask me what I want to do" option (so that it doesn't keep repeating the "downloading and updating" process on its own every time I start my PC). Then I went to Firefox site and thought of downloading and updating to the latest version on my own. But then I was informed that if I do so, I'll get the latest version, but I'll lose all my saved bookmarks unless I follow some hectic procedure to save them and load them again after installing the latest version of Firefox. I don't want to let that happen either. So, can anyone suggest me a way out of this situation without losing my bookmarks?


Almost forgot. I tried several times by going to Help>Check For Updates..., but every time it returned the same result: "There are no updates available. Firefox will check periodically for updates." How come no update is available while the version I'm using is 3.6.18 and the latest version is 5.0.1? In short, Check for Updates... didn't help either. (Even when I updated it last time, shouldn't it have updated itself from version 3.6.13 to 5.0.1 directly?)


So, can anyone suggest a way by which I won't lose my bookmarks and would be able to update to the latest version directly too? An answer that wouldn't involve removing the current version and installing the latest one, but directly update to it (it's okay if it needs downloading) would be more welcome. I know that the bookmarks can be saved in a file and all, but I'd like to know if it's possible as it happened for my current version from previous version. (It downloaded and updated itself on its own, disturbing nothing, not even logged me out of certain accounts where I stay logged in. The only problem there was that it wasn't updating directly to the latest version.)

I hope the aforementioned details make sense and are helpful enough for others to help me. Thanks.
