I was moving a firefox profile to a new computer. When I copied the profile I failed to close firefox first. Now when I try to open firefox on the new computer it keeps telling me that firefox is already open and it can't open a second copy. How can I tell it there is no firefox already open? I tried to go back to the old computer, close firefox, recopy the profile and then copy it to the new computer. But that did not eliminate the problem. Help please. Thanks. It's firefox 3.5.11 on Mac OS 10.6.4

I can't update my MacOS version so wondered if there is an in between version of Firefox which would enable me to see youtube videos with the sound and vision synchronized. With my current version the video is about 10 mintues behind the sound!

How can I get Firefox 3.0 to work as a browser on my iBook G4 with OS10.3.9 so I can work my Hotmail email account? The download loads OK but will not open to a browser page when I double click on it. Tom.

Have been using Firefox 2.0 just fine for years. But now stupid Windows Live Hotmail has made it impossible for me to "use" my email, such as doing Bcs or Attaching something, or even typing new text in the message box. Hotmail tells me I have to update my Firefox browser. But updating to Firefox 3.0 due my OS system limits does not now allow me to open onto the internet even after a successful download of 3.0.

I am using a mac, I am deleting some duplicate imported bookmarks and folders. FF lets me delete most bookmarks, but not select ones. Some folders can be deleted and others not.

I tried the three delete methods (toolbar, righthand click, and command delete) nothing seems to work. I tried restart FF and then the computer as well. Tried online suggestions. No luck

I recently updated my browser from Firefox 2.0 to the latest version, Firefox 3.6.1. I had neglected to update for awhile, and since not everything was running correctly, I went ahead and installed the new browser.

However, my computer still thinks I'm running 2.0.

I've cleared my cache, deleted all my cookies, and removed from my computer anything that had anything to do with Firefox 2.0.

However, when open up a new tab and check (javascript:document.write(navigator.userAgent)), it still tells me I'm running 2.0, even though my "About Mozilla Firefox" info says 3.6.1.

As a result, I'm unable to access a few websites because my browser, supposedly, isn't updated.
