Hi! I've readed many topics about this, but nothing helped. Last solution I've found on this site is about the "No Proxy" setting, but that didn't help too. I have no problems at all with FF 3.6, and I'm still using it most of the times, but I can't keep doing this for much longer, and some sites already won't work with it. I didn't like FF 4\5 so I've never used them "online", but since I've started trying out newer version, I've always had this problem (FF 12+, up to 21.0). 3.6 never had such problem, I can open 20 bookmarks from the same site at once and it does it flawlessly. I use Windows XP and Sandboxie, and I install FF directly into the sandbox. Tried disabling or not installing any plugin at all, nothing changes. Tried installing it over the working 3.6, tried with clean installs and with the reset function. Sometimes it loads pages without any prolem, but most of the times it takes ages and it's stuck at the blank page with the spinning weel for 30+ seconds. Sometimes, if i open two new tabs from te same site within a second, one of them loads, the other doesn't. Sorry for the long post and for my bad English. Thank you! :)

I just got a pop up saying Java is being blocked.

It says something about Firefox has found out that Java(TM) Platform SE 6 U31 6.0.310.5 is causing stability or security problems.

It's just popped up randomly while I was watching YouTube videos.

You are annoying me and it may cause me to delete Firefox and use another browser if you do not frankly and forthrightly answer my question and not skirt the issue and pretend you are addressing a question about auto-updates because that is not my question, which in fact is: How do I disable the window you have put on my home page that urges an upgrade to a newer version of Firefox? I simply want to keep the older version because I do not like your newer version, so don't end up like Avira (My former virus protection) and get replaced with a competing product merely because you have thoughtlessly gone overboard with the splash screen notifications. After all, I really do want to continue to say I like Firefox, not I used to like Firefox until... Put another way, its just like "A Few Good Men" Is this crystal?

I know how to added a site to the "Exceptions - Cookies" list an block the site. The problem I have is the site just changes the first part of its name/url and adds the cookie to the list. SInce the site is using a 8 digit number; it is impossible to block all the name/url it can create. Is there a way to block all the possible name/url by using a wild card symbol? Like the "*" symbol in UNIX. Example *.xxxx.xxx.com to the list of sites I wish to block?

My Firefox 3.6.28 browser keeps crashing unexpectedly. I already tried using Firefox on Safe Mode, but it did not crash. I believe it might be an add-on that might be causing the crashes, but I'm not sure if it is or which add-on is it. I do not want to upgrade to Firefox beyong 3.6+ because I worked too hard to configure/accustom the current 1 I have to my preference. And a lot of my addons are incompatible with Firefox browser versions 4 & up.

A few days ago my window at the top of the page suddenly disappeared, so now I cannot access new or quick to type in internet addresses anymore. As well, also the little google window on the right top side disappeared. To make things worse, even on another top bar were some icons, one of which looked like a house that - when klicked - got me to google. Now I have nothing but only tabs of old internet addresses to access, but not what I want, i.e. a new address that I usually just typed into the address bar.
