Running firefox 3.6.24 under Fedora core 14 64 bit. Cannot load certain pages from schoolfusion website with firefox or google chrome. I get server not found error. On the same machine a XP virtual with IE or chrome can access the website.I've checked wireshark output and the DNS query is there along with a good response to the query i.e. the dns returns the correct ip address. So I don't understand why the server error. On the same web site a link that does work starts with 2 identical DNS queries both get identical responses. It must be some network setting under linux only? I have a direct internet connect no proxy. I've tried all of the suggestions under server error already.

Thanks

I'm a frustrated newbie trying to download FF 8.0 on my Mac. I keep getting an error message saying an unknown error occurred and to save to a disk. Does anyone have a quick fix? Thanks!

It also tells me that a download file could not be opened. It goes through all the download steps and I get the message at the very end.

I've had this issue for a few weeks now. I had hoped perhaps once Windows 7 updated I would regain the use of tabs but it hasn't. When I try to open up a new tab in Firefox, nothing happens. Even if I right click and click "New Tab", nothing happens. I've tried restarting my computer, updating Windows, updating Firefox, restarting Firefox, re-installing Firefox and nothing has worked. I have a suspicion that something simply isn't compatible with Windows 7. Firefox still works fine on my other computers - one has Vista, the other XP.

Installed latest Firefox version, was advised to download latest adobe flash version, did: firefox now displays only skeletal lines with missing buttons etc. Tried switching to older version 3.6, same result! Very ugly, rather distracting, I wonder what else is not working properly as well.

I upgraded Thunderbird from V 3.1 to V 8.0. Everything worked properly with the upgrade version. Then when I shut it down and restart a dialog box appears. It says it must reboot to return to the prior version. If I don't reboot Firefox can't be started. If I do reboot it starts up fine but it reverts to V 3.1.

I hope someone knows what is happening and can help me fix the problem.

Thanks for any help.

I updated t0 3.6.24 and created a restore point. Updated to 8.0 and had add-on issues and couldn't correct so I did restore to before 8.0 update and assumed I would be at 3.6.24. Still had add-on issues so I restored to previous day. If I checked Trouble Shooting in the Help tab. It says version 3.6.23. When I go to about it says 3.6.24. How do I figure out the correct version. I want to go back to 3.6.23 because 3.6.24 screwed up my add-ons and 8.0 screwed up my old PC. I am running WinXP SP2 with 4G memory and 3.8Mhtz.
