Every time I open firefox, a "plugin check" website opens up. I thought that once I installed and updated all the pertinent updates for the plugins, the website would disappear when I re-opened firefox. However, the page wont' seem to disappear. I've done everything I could think of to get rid of this page. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

(I am on firefox 3.6.17. I cannot update to 4.0 because some of the websites I use cannot support 4.0).

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Firefox automatically starts itself on start-up every time. I don't want it to. If I want it on, I'll click on it. I don't go on the internet every single time I start up my computer and don't like having to WAIT for it to start up so I can quit it. I don't know why it does this - never did before - and it is EXTREMELY annoying! HELP! I'm on a Macintosh operating with Tiger OS.

The Menu Bar at top of the screen does not look right after the Help entry. File thru Help is fine and have a white background. After that I can see my screen background with icons for Print, Downloads, and others superimposed. Some of the icons can hardly be seen as they blend right in with my Wallpaper. Furthermore the line above the Menu Bar has it's own problems: It has the Firefox logo followed by some writing that go for for about 6 inches followed by stuff from my wallpaper. In other words, starting from the top of the screen I have two short lines of stuff with a white background followed by a see through view of stuff from my screen wallpaper. Starting with the Navigation Toolbar everything is fine. I don't have this problem with IE8. Can anyone shed some light on this problem. Thanks, JWare
