Latest FF and XP Pro. 2.4 Ghz Celeron, 1 gig RAM. FF will work for a while, then it will stop loading pages and say "Stopped" in the lower left corner of screen. Sometimes I can refresh and the page will load, but 95 out of 100 times I can keep refreshing and it will say "Stopped". Or, the page will partially load and then quit and say "Stopped". I have disabled IPv6 and DNS Prefetching and it is still doing it. IE is doing about the same thing. VERY frustrated. My last PC started doing this and I finally upgraded to a newer one and it was fine for a couple months, but started doing the same recently. Arghhh ... Thanks!

Firefox does not open more than one window at a time, then opens only new tabs. When asked to open link in a new window - nothing happens, no page or error message appears. Otherwise it works fine, but no new firefox window could be opened from menu or mouse. I tried to reinstall firefox several times, that didn't help.

Is there a way I can delete a security exception that I added? I tried to order from a website whose security certificate had expired, and I decided to add the exception on my laptop, and then wasn't able to order from the site anyway. I've not had any problems with my laptop, but I would feel better if I knew the exception had been deleted. I wasn't sure which menu I needed to use to delete it, if it's even possible. I have no idea why I thought adding the exception was a good idea in the first place, because now I'm just paranoid. Thanks!!

EDIT: The operating system on my laptop is Windows 7, if that helps. Thanks again!

Why does Firefox 3.6.12 truncate attachment file names containing blank spaces (Windows)?

Whenever someone sends me an attachment and I save it, Firefox truncates the file name if the file name contains blank spaces. I am running 3.6.12 under Windows 2000 SP4 right now. But this behavior has persisted for a long time, with earlier versions of Firefox and under Windows XP. Unfortunately, I cannot control the names of attachments people send me. As an example, if someone sends me a file named "file name.doc" (without quotes, of course), Firefox either displays it (via Micro$oft Word) or saves it as "file.doc". If I receive "filename.doc", that's how it gets saved.

My current version of Firefox has become corrupt. When I try to download a new version with Internet Explorer or my current version of firefox it goes to 53% unpacked and then it comes up with file corrupt. I have had the same issue before and have solved it by using a linux CD to download a windows version and it unpacks and installs great. I now cannot find a place where I can specify which version I want and it insists on using the download for Linux which is useless for me.

Tonight, when I loaded my browser, all my web pages came up without any background color- primarily just text on the same default system color background for all pages- this is fine for some simple pages, cause they load faster, but other pages like Facebook for example, I lose some of the graphical page elements, and that's not good! I'm not sure how this happened- all my pages going kinda `text only' (not totally- some foreground pictures load), and I'm not sure how to change it back- please help! I'm using 3.5.15 on a P4 tower.
