When firefox automatically upgraded me to 3.6.4 a lot of the flash stuff I was working on stopped working. The flash files wouldn't even start up. They all worked fine on the previous version of firefox I had. I just downgraded to 3.5.9 and they work fine again. The flash also works fine on multiple versions of Safari, IE6,7,8, and chrome.

Immediately after I did I put a copy of places.sqlite from my profile in a safe place. places.sqlite seems to have thousands of urls in it. I am running 3.5.9 on FC11 (yeah I know I should upgrade but can't at the moment). Therefore I don't have "Help > Troubleshooting Information" available to me. Is there anything I can do (like upgrade to 3.6) to get the tabs back or are they gone forever?

Thanks for any help.

I've tried installing flash player a dozen times, with both the instructions on the adobe page and the mozilla page. I'm running Fedora Core 11 with Mozilla 3.5.9. I've gotten "libflashplayer.so" and copied it to every "mozilla/plugins" directory on the drive. It does not work and is not listed when I bring up "tools/add-ons." One instruction said to copy "flashplayer.xpt" to the "mozilla/commponents" directory, but the download included no such file and I have no such directory. (Probably pertains to an older version.) I've tried downloading it with the .tar, .gzip, and yum; all with the same result. It doesn't work online and doesn't show up in my plug-ins.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Only time I've tried to install it.

I hope someone can help me. I am not really good with computers & am mostly "self taught" or use the forums. I am having a really hard time with my Bookmarks. I don't know which Bookmarks tool I have but I hate it. (How can I keep the bookmarks I already have & add to a new Bookmarks tool?) I need a very simple to use Bookmarks program. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the one of I have. Also I have a lot of add-ons. I would like to know which I can delete w/o messing anything up. Java is no longer working. (I get error messages.) I think I have too many programs on my computer. It is so slow on start up & crashes regularly recently. Someone *please help* or tell me somewhere I can turn for reliable help. Thanks very much. Your help is very much appreciate!

This happened

Not sure how often

== I added a new Bookmark add-on (don't know which one). Java just stopped working. I want to know what I can delete without hurting anything.

Every time I have tried a version of Firefox 3.6.x, the menu bars shrink to about half of their height. The printing on web pages becomes very tiny. Font sizes that were controlled by the Windows font size chosen in display preferences are no longer being used. I am legally blind and require larger font sizes on menu bars and web pages. I am using "No-Squint" and that works fine for web pages but does nothing for the menu bars. When I upgrade from version 3.5.9 to any version of 3.6.x, I have to readjust all of my No-Squint settings. When I switch back to version 3.5.9, my menu bars, fonts and No-Squint settings are returned to where they were. I would like to keep up with the version upgrades, but feel that control of the viewing has been hijacked. Please return control of the browsers settings to the user.

Why can't I unistall Starfield Zoom 1.1, what is it and why is it auto-installing with a new FF install?? I did not ask for it to be installed, did not download it, did not tell it to, and is it a hack or something?? And why isn't there any explanation of this by Mozilla?? The description of the plugin is "Productivity application zoom extension." Well it's not good enough that I can only DISABLE it, I want it GONE because I didn't authorize this in my browser! And if you can't be helpful or don't know, then would someone PLEASE tell me how I can contact someone at Mozilla who does? Because this forum post will probably never be read by any developer and I think it's a crock of you know what that you can't get better support for something like this and there's almost no information to be found on it.
