On our site is an application to make a custom postcard. This is partly made with Flex. In IE no problems but in FF the inputfields do not support the ALT+GR keys of foreign keyboards. In the early days this could be caused by using wmode but we don't. Seems Flash and FF toegther create a bug. Is there a fix for this?

We tried to upgrade to Firefox 4.0.1, but now all that pops up is a screen that says "your computer needs to reboot to complete an upgrade" but even after reboot, it still pops up everytime I try to open Firefox. It will not let me uninstall either. Firefox will not open at all.

I have dial up - once I connect to the internet, I get the message server not found and am unable to go anywhere on the internet. This started trying to load my banks online site and started about a week ago. I've tried freeing popup blocker, gone through the settings with a bank IT specialist, tried to us IE which has resulted in a request for a cable and now no access to any website. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

I am a medical transcriptionist. I was using Firefox 4 and without knowing that Firefox 5 does not support Google Toolbar I updated it. Searching in google is a integral part of my job and without the Toolbar I feel handicapped using Firefox 5. You can say that there is no need for toolbar in firefox 5 as the address bar doubles as toolbar, but I find it very difficult using it. I uninstalled Firefox 5 and try installing Firefox 4 version, but I am not able to. So, I have uninstalled Firefox 4 completely. So, pls advise if there is a way for me to get back my Firefox 4. Tx in advance for your help.
