If I am already in Firefox, say checking my Gmail, and then plug in my USB headset to make a free call, the sound only comes through the iMac internal speakers. I cannot make the sound come through the headset. It's only when I Quit Firefox and reopen it that the sound comes through.

I am trying to access a website and Firefox tells me that it is unable and that it is usually caused by the browser not allowing cookies. When I go to Preferences and Privacy as shown on the help screen, I see History and Location bar, but the only mention of cookies is to either clear history or remove individual cookies. Where do I find the switch to enable cookies??

I have applied for a job with a bank and have been directed to an on-line provider of competency tests (SHL on demand - www.shldirect.com). The portal is not compatible with the latest versions of the FF browser (or Windows IE 8), so I need to download and earlier version of the browser.

My personal laptop OS is Windows Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2).

I have a 17" screen, 1024x768. After updating Mozilla Firefox, I look at this page http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6.12/whatsnew/ .

Firefox Extension: NoScript.

1)Before allowing scripts: fonts look clean and readable. http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab81/ffilou6/ff3612a.png ;

2)After allowing scripts: fonts look a bit ugly, bold and kind of blurry, not precise and straight, aliased http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab81/ffilou6/ff3612b.png .

I hope in the next Firefox updating page, fonts will look better :-) .

Ok, here are some details about this. I was first told by Firefox from recent update that I should go and update Adobe flash player. No problem pop over and get it right? Wrong!! Get to the site, click through what I want to get, just the player nothing fancy. I get bounced over to the download start page, but here is the twist: "Fire fox requires additional plugins to display all the media on this page was the top header", not the "this is blocked for security reasons" that the page describes. Alright, I clicked on the button to navigate this mess. I get a message that states: No suitable plugins were found from the plugin finder and a nice button to install plugins manually. Ok, I click on this...Maybe I can get this...I get the download for a package called gp.xlc or some other extension. I direct this to the plugin bin for Mozilla firefox and replace the one that is already there. I try to reload the page. No luck! Tried going back to re-instigate the download..Failed. Restart firefox to let changes take effect..Ok done that now reapply for download...Failure. Now, what in the heck is next on the block for an idea to try? I just want it to work...please. Any help or ideas can be posted here or directed to my email: marting10@yahoo.com Thanks Madman142

For those of us who, sadly, live in homes where private browsing enables internet conduct that is not appropriate, can private browsing be disabled? If not, please understand that this private browsing "loophole" is concerning to portions of the user community. It would be great if this was an option that users had control over in their homes. (Maybe somehow by IP address?)

Firefox works fine until sometimes when I try to click to a link, or something else, then the tabs area fills in with a whole bunch of 'untitled' tabs that go whizzing across the tabs area. If I close Firefox, it just opens again with the tabs still running. I have to totally quit out of Firefox, then re-open before it will stop.

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.yahoo.com.

   *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again  in a few moments.
   *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure  that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
