I have a small business website which continues to generate the "Corrupted Content Error". I have read lots of information on the support forums about this and attempted numerous fixes, but have not been able to find the exact cause of the problem. I decided to post a question since the page will sometimes load properly, but when I click the reload button the error occurs. If I then use ctrl-F5 the page again loads correctly. I can't determine if this is an issue with the webpage code or something in Firefox. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I developed a Family Tree Web Site and there is a function that works perfectly well in Safari & Chrome but does not work in Firefox.

I have a button that is linked to open up a file. When I click on the button in Safari & Chrome the file opens without any issue. In Firefox, the URL appears at the top of the screen but the file does not “automatically open”. If I bring the cursor up to the URL and reclick on the URL the file will open. The need to physically have to enter the URL is not present in other Browsers. Is there something I can do to fix this problem?

I'm wondering what you guys are playing at, why the need to update so often? this is crazy. only 11 months ago, we were in version 3, now we are in version 7?? what is going on? the software is not that different, to warrant a major version update. I'm merely expressing my shock here at how you have changed it, but on to a more serious concern. that is add-ons. it seems to me that by making a major release, you are making it very difficult for the add-on makers. I have noticed that there is becoming less useful add-ons for firefox and the good ones are getting abandoned because they can't keep up. don't you think you should slow it down a notch? sure, I think development goes on at a normal rate, but see if you can find a way to impliment important security updates without messing up all the add-on codes? and without making a major version update! we went from 6 to 7 and what changed in terms of functionality? I honestly don't know because i saw no real big difference.

When I was using Firefox 3.x, I configured it to clear the list of downloaded files at exit. Now, I've "upgraded" to Firefox 7.0.1 and it's stopped doing it. Not only that, there doesn't seem to be a way to get that functionality back. Is there some setting I've missed, or have the Firefox devs decided that users don't need/want to have Firefox do this any more?
