For example, On a particular software, only the version 7 of firefox is marked as "certified" and I need this specific version for support reason.

I've found this website : http://www.oldapps.com/firefox.php but I would prefer downloading the file from mozilla servers for legal reason, and the only version available is 3.6.28 here :

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

(I've tryed to change the version in the download url without luck ;))

Any idea where I can get older version from mozilla servers? Thanks.

Several times over the last couple weeks, I type up a very well thought out response on Facebook in political conversations with friends. An hour or two into my work, I hit backspace with the intent of editing what I wrote (maybe after I scrolled or something, so maybe I unintentionally took the edit window out of focus). The navigator takes me back a page and I lose my two hours of work. Infuriating! Shortcuts with the ability to wipe out two hours of works should be disable-able. Not only that, I feel that is an unsafe shortcut for this very reason, and would have added a SHIFT modifier key or something like that. I think I invented a cool word: disable-able.

I use Firefox constantly. I'm now on version 11 but not much has changed. I've been forced to disable most every plugin and extension trying to troubleshoot my issues and I still have the same problems. No matter what site(s) I'm on after 2 or 3 clicks I get the running circle and the browser freezes. If I click again, I get the "Not Responding" message in the top bar. Most of the time it recovers within 30 seconds to 2 minutes and I can continue. Very often the whole thing freezes with no message but before long I get : Script: resource://gre/modules/XPCOMUtils.jsm:331 or Script: resource:///components/nsPrompter.js:466 and neither seems to be attached to any plugin or extension. No matter which version I've used and no matter what site I'm on this happens. I've decreased my allowed scripts to run time to "20" and disabled everything including hardware acceleration. ALSO, about 50% of the time when I'm editing my own site, all of a sudden it becomes VERY sluggish and takes too much time to do anything. When this happens I've switched right over to IE9 and have none of these issues. I also have an error log as long as your arm. Troubleshooting information is below. Please help!

The address bar at the top of the browser window doesn't work. It displays the address of the page I'm on just fine, but when I type in an address and hit either "enter" or the little "go to this address" forward arrow, nothing happens. In addition, the arrow is always grayed out.

It doesn't have anything to do with the address being invalid, as it happens even if I copy an address from a page I was on previously (which I did just to check).

My email links fail to open Firefox 11. They used to last week but IE updated and now links in my outlook emails do not open Firefox 11 even though it's my default browser. When I change to IE as the default the links open IE.

Your assumptions about my browser, operating system and others are correct.

VERY FRUSTRATING. HELP, Please

Firefox automatically upgrades the version I am using. Since it was recently upgraded I cannot open pdf files. Am faced with a blank page. I went through some of the suggestions on these pages and when I opened the Tools window, there is a warning:

Firefox PDF Plugin for Mac OS X is incompatible with Firefox 11!

Is there a way around it? Or is it time to say goodbye to Firefox and move to Safari?

I have looked at an attempted all the suggestions re. this and cannot locate my bookmarks and passwords on the old hard drive. Hard drive is still connected to my computer, though the PC has had a mother brd, CPU and RAM upgrade: Because of the upgrade could not load window, though the Windows file is still available. New HDD with windows installed, New install. of FF 11.0. Following search suggestions I can find the new Profile, but not the one on the old drive. I can access my Mozilla file in Program Files (x86), but find now appdata etc. Yes, I know, it was really stupid not to backup this stuff before the new hardware install, but didn't think the hardware change was going hose my W7 install so badly. Thanks for any help in advance.

Installed latest Firefox under Windows 7 64-bit. Cannot complete the installation of Flash Player from within Firefox as it seems it cannot connect to the Adobe server. After manual download from the Adobe site and after the site recognises correctly the OS and other details, download successfully. Start the installer only to see the downloaded file disappear from download folder and nothing happens, no dialogue etc. Upon checking task manager the process is there and running but seems to be doing nothing. I suspect this is not a problem with Firefox nor Flash but rather w7, but thought i would start here. Using the standard w7 firewall and AVG free for antivirus. Recently purchased from DELL.

Hello, I've been noticing lately that what seems to be outside ad companies are creating hyperlink in news stories I'm reading. This isn't happening when I use Internet Explorer.

I checked with the editor of a site I visit (psmag.com) and he says they aren't doing it on their end, and they can't see the problem that I'm talking about. But, from their front page, in four stories there was a word that was larger font than the rest of the words, and it was a hyperlink to outside ads. This has been happening over and over for the last 2 or 3 weeks on various sites. What is going on?
