I was happy with the old version of Firefox I was using, but I wanted to install an addon that required a later version, so I "upgraded". Prior to the upgrade I has white text on a black background set as my default. After the upgrade those settings were maintained, *except* in most web text-input boxes (such as the text-box on teh Google main screen). These boxes either became reverse colored (e.g. black text on white background), or even worse, bleck text on black background, so the text is invisible. (This happens on secondary Google search pages.) Very annoying and not very useful.

Also, buttons like the Google search and "I'm feeling lucky" buttons are showing up blank, as does the "submit" button on THIS page. And on some sites "captcha" boxes are invisible, making it impossible to register or login at those sites.

How do I fix this?

I've seen a number of suggested fixed for similar problems, ranging from editing the userChrome.css file to using "Stylish" to install overlays. None of these fix the problem. They either don't work at all, or they are overkill, changing a whole bunck of -other- things that I -don't- want changed. Also, they all seem overly complex for a problem that SHOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED IN THE FIRST PLACE. An upgrade that trashes my installed settings isn't an "upgrade", it;s a downgrade.

My geographical location is Philippines. How does Firefox know that? When I go to google.com, it automatically sends me to the tagalog google, which I can't use.

When I opened Gmail in my Firefox browser, I got a message I've never seen, before: "You are using an old version of Firefox which Gmail no longer supports. Some features may not work correctly. Upgrade to new version." I clicked on upgrade to a new version and was taken to the Mozilla site, where I downloaded the latest version of Firefox... then, when I restarted my computer, Gmail still gives me the same message!! What's going on?

Every time I try to update to Firefox version 4.0.1, everything seems like it's gone okay. I experience no errors.

I've tried to download Firefox four times now. Each time I successfully clicked "Finish" with the option to launch my browser. And each time, when I try to download an addon, I get the frustrating message that I am still only using version 3.5.5 and I need version 3.6.

I am using an old Dell. Windows XP. Flash up to date.

I just updated to Firefox 7.0.1, but Google Mail is telling me I have an outdated version of Firefox and even when I go to the Mozilla site I get a message at the bottom of the screen that says I have an outdated version. I also can't install certain addons because they tell me that they don't work with 3.5.5. The version number in the browser does say 7.0.1, but it doesn't add like it.
