Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 and I have installed F/f 3.5, 3.6, 3.65pre only 3.6.5pre does not appear in the synaptic list. I would like to revert to the recognised/updated version of 3.6 and completely remove all redundant packages. Mozilla only suggests removing the profile but I need that when the recognised version is allowed to run. Suggestions would be welcome.

Beginning with 3.5.3 and continuing with 3.6 and latest Ubuntu, the scroll wheel moves a website up and down, but the Page UP and Page Down keyboard commands do not work. After hitting key a second time, it jumps to the bottom of the page and the Up key takes it back up to the top. Also, a black flashing rectangle appears on the left side of the page. This will disappear when a blank space on the site is clicked. I thought installing the latest Ubuntu update and the latest Firefox might solve the problem, but it persists. Any thoughts appreciated.

On Debian installed SUN-JAVA6-JRE and IA32-SUN-JAVA6-BIN and vanilla Firefox 3.6.6

Followed instructions to create symlink libjavaplugin.so -> /usr/lib/jvm/ia32-java-6-sun-1.6.0.20/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so in ~/.mozilla/plugins, but restarting firefox and about:plugins does not show Java plugin.

Also created symlink in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, and in firefox install dir /usr/local/firefox/plugins. but none of this solved the issue.

Please advise

I have a laptop that I upgraded: ubuntu8.10 -> ubuntu9.0.4 java stopped working in yahoo bridge. (firefox = 3.0.19) I followed Sun's instructions putting the link to the correct .so file to java6u20 plugin but that did not help. I tried clearing cache. still nothing. I have another PC with firefox3.0.19 and there is no java plugin but there are two flash plugins (1 free, the other non-free) it is at ubuntu8.10 and java is working just fine in that firefox. I have followed all of firefox's steps for enabling java in the preferences dropdown. I can provide more details if you need them.

Firefox version: 3.6.8 OS: Mandriva Linux 2010.1

After adding a new extension, or updating an existing one, Firefox asks for a restart. When Firefox restarts, the extension is not installed/updated and it requires a restart.

When checking the extensions.log file I found the following three lines repeated a number of times on each Firefox start:

2010-08-12 17:25:25 - safeInstallOperation: file extraction failed, rolling back file moves and aborting installation. 2010-08-12 17:25:25 - ExtensionManager:_finishOperations - failure, catching exception - lineno: 1608 - file: undefined - [Exception...

Installed Firefox 3.6.8, tried update first, then did complete uninstall and fresh install from scratch. Problems, problems...

Can not set Tools-Options, the page is blank with only CANCEL button active. Pages keep loading forever, tab page load indicator never stops. On first start, home is www.google.com, then it reverts to Firefox-Google home and search does not work at all. Will not let me connect to support.mozilla website either. Drives me crazy ! Thanks for help in advance.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and I use the keyboard a lot to scroll and copy from the browser. Neither of these things are working. Hitting the keys that usually control scroll does nothing and hitting ctrl-c whilst text is selected has no effect. I can enter text into form fields (obviously :) ) but I can't tab between them.

I have googled this and keep coming up with it being an issue with caret browsing being enabled. Toggling caret browsing does not help me.

I want to erase all certificate exceptions, that is, go back to the original default set of trusted SSL certificates. I've found the Certificate Manager and its big lists of trusted things, but I have no idea which of them ship with Firefox and which of them were added by me at some time in the past. How do I do this?

EDIT: (The solution ended up being, against all expectation, that everything was actually perfectly fine. It was the -webhost- that was messing it up. Note to anyone who comes across this: GoDaddy is terrible for hosting. The same files, uploaded to a real webhost like SourceForge, work perfectly well. What GoDaddy can possibly be failing at, I can't even imagine.)

I am creating a self-referential form (POST method) in PHP to lead a user through the process of a complicated, branching calculation. I load the PHP in Firefox 3.6 and it comes up fine, and I do the first submission and that works fine. But if I do another submission quickly (within a few seconds), instead of working, it submits to itself with no fields so I get the front page back again, and no matter what I do, it keeps submitting with no fields. If I then reload the original PHP file not via POST and redo the first submission, the first submission works again and the second fails again.

However, if I do the first submission, and then sit there doing absolutely nothing for maybe 20-30 seconds, and then do the second submission, it works perfectly fine. If I again wait, the third submission works; otherwise, it submits like the first with no fields and messes up.

I tried this with and without HTTP headers to prevent caching, without effect.

Any ideas what's going on?

Edit: (And, to be clear, if I change POST method to GET method, it works flawlessly every time. But having the data appear in the URL is confusing and problematic for users, as well as severely complicating the process of bookmarking if the user decides in the middle of the calculation to make a bookmark. The bookmark should be to the beginning of the calculation, not the middle, because the calculation is time-sensitive so old data are useless and should not be re-produced.)

Used an Asus netbook running Linux / Firefox version 2.0.0.0.11 for 3 years no problems. Now I cannot use "Hotmail" on it as it requires an update to version as above.

It appears to download but not to open and I get the message "could not be opened because the associated helper application doe not exist" I am also not sure where I should be downloading it too but chose home/user.

I am very basic user but checked the File "open with" settings and there is no application for a tar.bz2

Any advice would be very much appreciated
