A popup flashed briefly for milliseconds and was gone before I could read, let alone click on it. I think it asked if I wanted to? update or ?upgrade (to 3.6.6 from 3.5.3 ?). Then a message that ?download failed (like all Firefox messages, gone before I can focus, read, comprehend or act ) - extremely irritating! You guys must fix this!Asked on Forum:results unreadable on dim background.

Not sure how often

The green arrows for page forward or back at the top left under File and Edit disappeared after I downloaded the new Firefox toolbar (for 3.6) and were replaced by Most Visited, Getting Started and Latest headlines Icons, which I have little use for. How do I get the Original Toolbar back?

Because of a crash, I had to completely uninstall Firefox 3.5.3 and I installed Firefox 3.6.3. After that, some Java features are not working any more. Here I attached an example, where the "plus" buttons do nothing, but when opening the page with IE there is no problem to expand the "plus". I have many extensions installed, I have also tried to disable them (even running Firefox sercure mode), as well as reinstall the last Java version, but nothing yet (Java seems to be correctly installed, since other features work ok, and official Java web page test works ok as well).

Firefox keeps hijacking my files. They can then be opened only with Firefox, and then other tools (which were written to use Internet Explorer) cannot do their job. Unfortunately, since the laptop is owned by my employer, I cannot simply remove Firefox from the laptop. How can I disable Firefox without removing it from my PC?
