I have uninstalled and reinstalled FF several times. When I try to install the extension (that requires FF 4.0), I get a pop-up that says I am still using an older version of FF and asks if I want to upgrade. When I click on "About Firefox", it says I have 4.0. In February, I downloaded FF Beta which I understand could be a problem. I also have read that you need to manually delete Beta files which I have done. I did a system search to see if any Beta files exist and no further files were found. I just want to make sure FF 4.0 is installed and be able to install the FGS extension.

I am running 3.6.16: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.16) Gecko/20110319 Firefox/3.6.16 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C)

I click on Tools, then Options, then Security, then Saved Passwords and finally "SHOW PASSWORDS".

I had no idea that it would be this easy for someone to gain access to whatever passwords I've saved. Shouldn't this feature be password protected also? Is there a way I can secure this so that anyone who uses a machine after me that I use frequently will not see my saved passwords?

Please advise.

I have Mac OS 10.5.8 and Firefox 3.6.16. I'm trying to install Firefox 4.0. I downloaded the dmg file, opened it, and moved the Firefox icon over the Application icon. The result was a message saying, "A newer item named 'Firefox' already exists in this location. Do you want to replace it with the older one you are moving?" I checked the Firefox already in my Applications folder and it is definitely 3.6.16, I hesitate to go ahead with the replacement until I know why I'm getting this (apparently) false message. Can you help me?

I just upgraded to Firefox 3.6.16 on Windows XP. The buttons that used to be at the top of the browser that said "file" "view" "tools" "help" are gone. Pressing the "alt" key does nothing. Same thing happened when downloaded Firefox 4.

There's not much I can do with this browser if I can't access a fundamental button like "tools." Any help would be appreciated. TIA

How do I get all the control buttons in one place in 3.6.16, like they used to be in previous versions? Having the refresh and stop buttons between address and search windows, and the home button to the far right is awful.

In 3.6.16, the buttons are all over the place. In previous versions, the forward, back, refresh, stop and home buttons were all together. In this version, the refresh and stop buttons are between the address and search windows, and the home button to the far right.

I would love to have them all together as they used to be - much more user friendly that way. I have tried installing alternate themes, but the coding of this version over-rides the themes.

FF4 on ubuntu ... It seems apparent that FF4 maintains a backup of places.sqlite and if places.sqlite is corrupted or removed it automagically replaces the corrupt/lost file. I need to know exactly where FF is maintaining this backup info at. Anyone know? ( I DO NOT need to restore my places.sqlite. I just need to know where FF maintains the backup.)

I am a frequent user of BBC radio via the net. The BBC has re-vamped its player and this afternoon [01 04 11] I tried listening to Radio 7 and then Radio 4 to check. The listening panel showed up but there was no sound either on listen live or on 'listen again'. I am now listening to R7 live via Safari.

I have not had problems before with Firefox and the BBC

FRACK! -- tried to change category, and it wiped my details and troubleshooting info (about 1K of typing!) So will restate, but without as many details.

Firefox's cache shows (in 'cacheviewer'

extension) 3 possible locations:

memory, disk and 'offline' (don't usually have anything in 'disk' due to my settings, FWIW).

What is 'offline' in relation to the cache?

How do I get rid of them (I can delete them from the viewer page, but they come back leaving the viewer page and restarting it).
