I downloaded Firefox 4 after reading and viewing the online ad. Unfortunately it doesn't look anything like the version i saw in the video. Is this because I run an iMac on OS X 10.5.8? There are some changes but nothing like the video said. Thanks, Craig

The tabs are above the address bar and the refresh button is at the end of the address bar but not a lot else is different. Private Browsing has to be accessed from the Tools menu. In other words, most of the features that were to be on the front screen are absent. Thanks for your assistance. Craig

When I'm on any website, Firefox is very sporadic in terms of what I can click on.

Sometimes videos won't play when I press play and when I can finally play them, I can't pause them but a couple tries later it will work. I'm on a mac and I noticed that … (read more)

Sometimes videos won't play when I press play and when I can finally play them, I can't pause them but a couple tries later it will work. I'm on a mac and I noticed that the cursor will remain as an arrow when I attempt to click on videos and links and it will sporadically change into the little hand with the index finger only after several frustrated attempts.

Typing nonsense in the URL field will take Firefox to a Google "can't find" page. This happens even with Google removed from the list of search engines in the Search field, and even with the Search field removed from the toolbar. How can I prevent Firefox from connecting to Google (or any other site) automatically, regardless of text entry anywhere?

Should I uninstall Firefox 3.6.6 before Upgrading to OSX 10.6?

I want absolutely no glitches when I upgrade my MacBookPro from OSX 10.5.8 to 10.6.3. I use Safari as my main browser and Firefox only when a website does not work well with Safari. Therefore, I thought it might be best to uninstall Firefox before I upgrade, because I can always re-install Firefox after I have upgraded. What do you think? I have AppZapper to use to uninstall Firefox since it will search out and collect all Preference lists, etc., that accompany Firefox, resulting in a complete and clean uninstall. Any thoughts? Thanks!

I have been unable to download graphics on web pages that use a lot of them, i.e. Facebook, New York Times, etc. but everything is fine with other sites. It's not just a Firefox problem, Chrome and Safari are the same way. I've cleared out cache, started a new profile, etc. and nothing has changed.

Firefox randomly disconnects from the internet. The work off line option is somehow checked and when un- checked Firefox will still not connect. A re-boot of the computer most often solves the problem. This is new and I have not made any changes recently. Running Fox 3.6.3

On websites I visit daily – newspapers, Hotmail, etc, even though I have clicked "remember me on this computer", it does not work. I have to log in every time I have restarted my computer (Mac OSX 10.5.8). Also, this may be related. I have iGoogle as my home page, but "themes", location, widgets, etc are not saved when I shut down.
