On my older Dell tower, I have FF3.6.22, WinXp(fully updated), 2.4Ghz but the RD-RAM is limited to only 256M (because it is rare and very expensive). While I would love to have your latest features, the tradeoff for resources is making me wait for a more efficient version. So which one/and when might that be?

Several people including me have reported a problem when closing Firefox and then attempting to re-open it. The message "FF is already running and must be closed...." appears, yet the taskbar does not show an active FF. At that point it is necessary to use Task Manager to close the old run. 1. This did not always happen on my computer- has started recently. 2. Most of the time it is in fact possible to open multiple versions of FF without difficulty. This problem only seems to happen if I close the first session and then immediately try to open a new one. So my question is what causes this, not what workaround can to used when it occurs.

Netflix and Hotmail are the main problem. Both of them are are asking me to update my browser. I already have Firefox 3.6.22 installed. Disabling any and all Plug-In's has done nothing.

I think it may be a configuration problem in my About:Config, but I do not know what it is. Is there a way to force Firefox to report a certain version to websites?

I was updating Adobe Reader 9.x to 10, and when Adobe offered the chance, I followed the

directions and clicked on the file. For some reason I got two progress bars of installation

status. One of which was Adobe Reader X, the other was "Google Chrome". When all was complete, I

had a shortcut placed on my desktop labled Google Chrome. I did not click on this icon to this

day. FireFox's homepage is Google. Now is FireFox utilizing this new google download in any way,

and what is the shortcut on my desktop for? When FireFox opens with Google, it appears no

different that it ever did. I wanted to use "Add or Remove programs" to delete this "Chrome"

deal, but I'm not sure if that would mess up FireFox in any way. I hate when these kind of

surprises happens. Please Advise ... HELP !!!! pdh

If I open too many Bookmarked pages into tabs my browser will hang and then sometimes crash or close unexpectedly. If I bring up task manager or use the Alt + Tab I can navigate to the window and right-click and choose restore to allow me to see the window again. This needs to be done if I load more than 10 pages at once. Is there a way to choose to prevent loading of all opened tabs and then choose which tabs I'm currently working with to load the webpage? I would like to know how to use a shortcut key on my keyboard to select all tabs as ctrl + A does not work and then escape or another key tells to stop all pages from loading in each tab as with all the ads, gifs, videos, and internet spam keeps growing it is too much of a strain to have multiple webpages opened in tabs on the browser.

I use Win XP SP2 and I am eagerly waiting a solution as it has been an issue with even previous versions of Firefox however IE could only have about 3 tabs opened and then would crash that is why I stick with Firefox as my browser of choice.
