I'm in an area where I can only use dial up.Right now, I use Firefox version 3.6 and have no problems with SlipStream. SlipStream is an accelerator for dial up.I want to update to 8.0.1,but it doesn't appear to be compatible with SlipStream. My local tech support (Pennswoods) doesn't think it's compatible. The existing plugin doesn't work. Any ideas what I can use? Thank you for any info. (I'm not real great with computers)

Today when I logged my computer on my bookmarks and history had vanished. I then noticed my back and forward/buttons had stopped working as well. I have tried several of the suggestions on this site, but it is hard, because I can't go back pages, I have to close everything down and start over (did I mention that sometimes everything stops working?) I just want my bookmarks back. How can I get them?

I downloaded the new version on my daughter's computer while I was distracted!!! So we lost the old version, 3.624, and THEN found that the newer version wouldn't work on her Mac. There is no way that we are replacing our computers, so is there a way to get the older version back? Thanks

Why has Mozilla discontinued downloads and support for the most recent versions prior to 8.0?? Imagine my surprise when 8.0 was automatically installed and I discovered that not only had the Google Toolbar been deactivated, but other plug-ins and extensions were no longer compatible. To restore my previous browser configuration, I had to downgrade way back to version 3.6.24 -- and then also had to find previous compatible themes to use!!! You folks really know how to throw users into a tailspin! I didn't even know there was a new version. And how can I disable automatic updates??

I have Firefox V3.6.24. Why regardless if I upgrade to the latest V or just download the latest V 8.0, 3.6.24 loads back up?

I am trying to install the latest versions of Firefox & Thunderbird. When I upgrade Firefox it either re-installs the same version or downgrades the version of Thunderbird installed.

Then if it does upgrade properly, it changes Thunderbird V 8.0 to an earlier version! Then when I upgrade Thunderbird back to V8.0, it changes Firefox back to V3.6.25.

I have upgraded many, many times and never had any thing like this happen before.

I have half-speed dial-up. When I restart Firefox it attempts to connect to each web page from my previous session to refresh the pages. This chokes my connection. How can I stop this auto refresh action? Thanks.

I want my new session to reload my web pages from the previous session FROM CACHE, and not try reload each page from the internet. I can start Firefox with the modem disconnected to prevent this, but it can take 3 to 5 minutes for Firefox to open this way. (I see the modem blink as Firefox tries to connect during this time.) If my 56.6 modem is connected, it would take >60 minutes. (28.8 is the highest speed available in rural areas.)

I updated t0 3.6.24 and created a restore point. Updated to 8.0 and had add-on issues and couldn't correct so I did restore to before 8.0 update and assumed I would be at 3.6.24. Still had add-on issues so I restored to previous day. If I checked Trouble Shooting in the Help tab. It says version 3.6.23. When I go to about it says 3.6.24. How do I figure out the correct version. I want to go back to 3.6.23 because 3.6.24 screwed up my add-ons and 8.0 screwed up my old PC. I am running WinXP SP2 with 4G memory and 3.8Mhtz.

I am presently using Firefox version 3.6.24 on my PPC mac using system 10.4.11. I have been using Firefox for many years with no problems. Yesterday I received and alert on my screen that there was a new update of Firefox available to install. I clicked OK and the update started. When it finished I checked and it was the same version, 3.6.24, which I was using and apparently nothing had changed until I went to my eBay classified site. Once on my site I signed in and went to the manage my items page. The page looked different because normally it displays all items I have for sale and at the top of the list of sale items are three items to check and look at My Ads, which I am looking at, My Profile and My Alerts. When you click on one of these you are normally taken to another page. When I went there after the apparent installation of the updated version of Firefox the page showed My Ads in one column, My Profile in another column and a third column for my alerts all on one page. This is not normal. I signed out and went page to my home page which is http://www.rr.com/. It was now different. Parts of the site were now missing, the sections with the weather, news and notices. I thought it might be the site and then I launched Safari and went to the same page and it was normal. This morning when I launched Firefox it displayed my home page as screwed up as yesterday. Safari showed it as it should look. I then launched SeaMonkey and it showed the page as it should look. I really like Firefox and would like to get it working again like it should. Would appreciate any suggestions. My email address is jsimmons15@cfl.rr.com
