I play alot of games on Facebook. I have started encountering a problem with my "flash player crashing"... I have uninstalled all Adobe products and reinstalled them to no avail. It seems to happen more when I am using the games put out by Zynga. I cannot understand why it's happening, and certainly don't know what to do to fix it. I sure would appreciate any help you can give me!

After recent upgrade of Firefox on my p.c., I cannot connect to the Internet although I can send and receive email in Outlook. The error message says: Firefox is configured to use a proxy server that is refusing connection. I'm sending this from my laptop after Firefox just upgraded again. Too many upgrades.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Firefox upgraded to 3.5.? I think.

Hello, I need to restrict the use of Firefox and Internet Explorer to only specified websites that we use for business use. I have a problem with a number of employees using unauthorized and dangerous websites that have put my business computers at risk. Since it is impossible to police the employees viewing habits in real time, I need to restrict the viewing. How do I set up a list of only allowed sites that can only be overridden by admin privileges despite user accounts?

I need to keep the Firefox version 3.6.6 due to compatibility issues with other programs running on my servers. I've successfully installed this version but whenever I open Firefox I get this message: 'Your browser is out of date Upgrade today for the latest in speed/security.' I click on the No Thanks icon, however, I get this message every time I open Firefox. I have my settings set to NO auto update. How can I get this window to not display?

I have only recently noticed this problem, when I am clicking into my Show All History it turns out to be blank and my bookmarks aren't showing up either they show up when I click Bookmarks tab but not in my Library under All Bookmarks.

I have double checked my settings and everything is set as to how the forum help suggests I tried maybe extending the amount of time before my history got deleted I have set mine to delte in 5 days however when I turned my pc off the other day and I logged on to try and find something I had searched for the previous day by clicking Show All History nothing is there it is just blank why is that?

I hope I have explained the problem well enough because I can't seem to figure out why my history is blank
