firefox prevented this page from auto redirecting to another page I get this message every time I go to new search page. I am so F-ING tired of pressing the key allow it's not funny. Can't Fire fox remember the dam pages I go to? Every freaking time I go to a new page that props up and I have to click allow. I would like to get rid of that for good so if you can help me that's cool if not then good bye. I go to explorer for browser. I can't take it anymore. Plus when I'm reading that page moves up again and I have to click allow again.

I'd like to have large icons in my navigation toolbar, but small icons in all other toolbars.

Checking/unchecking the "use small icons" box changes the size of ALL icons. For instance, when I check the box, the icons in my navigation toolbar become small, but I want them to be large.

Can someone help?

For a few months, Gmail has been requesting I upgrade to the newest Firefox. I always have the newest update. Currently it is 8.0.1. A few other apps, I don't remember which ones, request me to update Firefox as well--but I am! (Firefox as a browser seems to work just fine though.)

How can fix this?

Thanks,

Marty

Hi. I wish to submit feedback, so I click "help" then "Submit feedback".

I get directed to a page:

Oh! So, you want to offer us feedback on Firefox. Thank you, but you'll need to be on the latest version.

To do that, simply go to our download page and install/update to the latest version of Firefox!

But:

Firefox 4.0.1 Firefox is up to date

I can not submit feedback unless I update a copy of fire fox that is "UP TO DATE!".

Since upgrading to 5.0, many websites tell me my browser is not up to date (for example, if I try to sign up for Google +, it says my browser needs to be upgraded...same with some pages on FaceBook). This is keeping me from using some websites and quite annoying.

Not sure if it's related, but ever since I did upgrade, if I click on options on one of my add-ons, nothing happens except it renders the browser frozen and I can't click on anything without having to force close it and restart the browser.

While on the internet yesterday, a page suddenly appeared titled Security Analyst - Mozilla Firefox. It said my computer was infected with five viruses and prompted me to download and run the attached protection software (which I didn't) . Since I have anti-virus software and scan my computer regularly, I'm wondering if this page was actually sent by Mozilla Firefox, or if it was a fake. So, my question is, does Firefox actually send such advisories + software to users?

Thank you for your help!

Downloaded Firefox 14.0.1. Would not install. Got message: "This version of Firefox requires Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or newer."

I have dial-up and it took an hour to load, now it won't install. Very frustrating, particularly as I have Windows XP. Why won't it load?

Thank you.

I recently upgraded from 16.0.2 to 17.0. The fonts used by firefox in the toolbar and the names on the tabs have changed to a dirty, bold look. I do not like it. In 16.0.2 I am using the default theme. In 17.0 I am also using the default theme of 17.0. I am running Windows 7. Since my home and work machines have similar configurations, the work version (still 16.0.2) has the nicer looking fonts. If this antiquated system allowed one to attach screen shots, I could visually show the difference brought about by the upgrade to 17.0

How do I get back the application fonts that were used in 16.0.2?
