I use Intuit to maintain a website. After I update the website, Firefox continues to display the previous version while the revised version is displayed on Internet Explorer. I have tried using both Firefox and Internet Explorer when I revise the website, but that does not appear to make any difference. The version on Firefox usually updates to the new version with in a day or two, but the change on Internet Explorer is immediate.

I'm running 3.6.12 and as recently as yesterday the majority of my addons are not working/showing up where they would normally be. I've tried deleting the 3 extensions files in the profile to reset the cache, but this hasn't helped. FF is also exhibiting other strange symptoms. For instance, if I click "help" and "troubleshooting information" it just opens up a blank tab. If I click a link outside of firefox it opens up a blank tab. I haven't made any recent changes to firefox. What can I do?

I'm running Win7 Home Premium 32bit

Prevent moving focus to another firefox window

I develop in ColdFusion and keep a FF debug window open. When I navigate to a page the CF debugger refreshes the content of the debug window.

Prior to upgrading to 3.6.12 this morning, the debug window did NOT acquire focus, and remained in the background until I wanted it. With 3.6.12, the debug window always jumps to the foreground.

Is there a configuration option to prevent this?

(FWIW, IE always has done the same thing, and it's extremely annoying.)

Hello,

As I mentioned in the 'Question' section, this is what is happening on my Firefox ver. 3.6.12

I use several tabs on my 3.6.12 version of Firefox... In the last few months, the websites that I have tabbed work flawlessly for a few days to a week and then all of a sudden, some of the websites have incorrect formatting issues... and some links on the affected sites are inoperable. This will go on for a few days and then it will revert back to the correct page format... The sites that have the issues are: Canoe.ca, Facebook, Ebay and Kijiji... I have screen shots of the correct and incorrect formats for Canoe.ca. I have included links to my pics. The first pic is the 'incorrect' format and the second is the 'correct' format. You will notice in the URL box, that both pics are from the identical page...

Does anyone have any idea as to what is going on? Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know how to fix this... It is VERY frustrating when I cannot view/use certain websites...

TIA...

I have installed Firefox today, and like the look of and the speed. But I have an extensive set of foldersin my IE Favorites and remebered passwords I don't want to have to reimput. I have now tried twice folowing "Importing favorites and other data from Internet Explorer " which seemed to go smoothly, once with IE open and the other with it closed, and closed down my PC between each attempted installation. Any ideas?
