Recently I received a pop-up from "Firefox" telling me I urgently needed to update my browser. Even though I thought this was strange, I did it, and ever since I have been getting pop-ups when I start up my computer and randomly while browsing. This same message just popped up again from this address:

http://softocheck.org/update?get=bcbd82d0eeef5d229c2163d54195228d

Is there a way to fix this? I've tried going to my control panel and deleting unfamiliar programs. Twice I've had to delete something from an unknown source titles "dofus" (go figure..). At the very least I thought it should be brought to Mozilla's attention.

When looking at Amazon.com in firefox, there are no images for any of the products. I can Google search and see images. I can also open Internet Explorer and see images on Amazon. Since my job includes working with Amazon and the accounts of people, I would like to find out why this is happening. Any ideas? I have tried the usual as far as clearing cookies and caches also there are no popup blocks that show.

All my plugins are up to date. When I go to Mozilla's home page a fuzzy monster tells me, "Hey there! Looks like you’re using an old version of Firefox." Many websites tell me they do not support my old version. Programs and Features lists me as having 5.0.1 installed also and there is not a second instance of firefox installed.

Why does my updated version of Firefox keep freezing telling me "not responding"? I have no plugins either..

When i start firefox it takes forever to load, sometimes it doesnt even load up my default site, it should load up www.google.com but instead it loads www.ask.com. The reason why is because the browser isnt working correctly. When I try to view any website, or search on Google it takes forever for something to happen, and 95% of the time the whole browser almost turns completely WHITE, then at the top of the browser it says "Not Responding". I have to continue to close the browser and start a new session but it does the same thing.

I have no or extensions, nothing at all.

Whats going on? I never had problems with Firefox, what is going on?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

I am installing Firefox from the Fedora YUM repositories via Kickstart. After installation, the .mozilla directory and its subdirectories do not exist. Although I have the Firefox configuration files I want to install, I don't have a place to put them. And since Firefox seems to create a .mozilla/firefox/*default directory with a random name, I can't easily just create the directory and then insert my files. Is there a way to make this fully automatic?

I tried to update Firefox 3.0.15 to a newer version (I believe it's 4.0.1) and all the downloading went fine, but when I went to drag Firefox into the applications folder (using Mac OS X 10.6.7) it said that the operation couldn't be performed because I don't have permission to access some of the items. I shut down, did everything over again, and it still had the same problem.

Can someone help? I don't want to get hacked into.
