I want to upgrade to latest version but -Help/About Firefox- window does not show "upgrade" as in the instructions. I cannot find an "upgrade" function anywhere else. How do I upgrade? The version I have is -18.0.1- it came with this used computer.

I believe this computer was hacked. Word started doing very strange things. We wiped the hard drive and reloaded everything as it was originally when I bought it. I am now getting hacked online.

They originally got into one of my credit cards last fall. That is when this all started. They got my AOL email address. They also got the credit card current balance, minimum payment, due date and then even the payment amount. They got into my Barnes & Noble account and now checkout does not work. Now I believe they have gotten into my AOL account - one thing after another has started going wrong. I cannot change that AOL user id/email address since it is the master and I would lose about 15 years of "stuff".

The folks that sold me this computer told me to use a free version of an antivirus. I am very unhappy with it. I never had ANY trouble when I used TrendMicro's expense products. Those folks also told me to use Firefox, since AOL uses Internet Explorer - which I already knew is like Swiss cheese.

Now, I cannot seem to get an upgrade of Firefox. Is this also a hack?

Please help any way you can. Thank you for your time.

Please Help This Driving me Mad Since the installation Firefox 20.0.1. on my MS Windows 7 Toshiba Laptop There has been a box in the center of my screen titled 'Install Progress< with a green progress bar running below it. Firefox 20.0.1 (FF) is working fine and I can drag the progress box about my screen to my hearts content. Although it has no little cross in the upper right corner I can get rid of it by hovering my mouse above the (ff) icon pinned to the program task bar. this gives me an Install progress box with the little cross, click and its gone. That is until I close and restart (ff) and back it comes right in the middle of the screen. I have tried to get rid of it through ALT-CTRL-DEL Task Manager, but again it reappears on start up of (ff) I have also stripped (ff) from my machine once using MS Widows Program Features Uninstall/Change and for a second time using a third party software and as soon as I reinstall (ff) it back same old problem. Thank You Regards Fenfolly

I downloaded a file from my yahoo mail messages yesterday that appeared as "read-only" so I went through the trouble of right-clicking the file in the containing folder and unchecking the "read only" and spent 2 hours adding writing to the document because it's a story I'm working on and saved it to my documents on my laptop but today the file cannot be found on my computer but shows up still in my download folder. However, when I click on the file to open the containing folder, it WILL NOT OPEN. I need to know how I can recover the version of the document that I saved after working on it for TWO HOURS so that the work is NOT Lost Forever! Please help me recover the lost work version and to OPEN IT successfully.

I need a response ASAP please! Thank you for taking the time to read and respond.

Sincerely,

Lexi

We have been prompted several times to update our Firefox software (19.02). When we click to update, a screen appears saying downloading is in progress, but other than rotating blue and white stripe, nothing happens. It can spin for many minutes, with no indication a connection has been made or that any download actually is in progress. There is no "allow" or "install." It doesn't get that far.

Having used Hotmail for 15 years and slowly evolved with it; I have now been forced into Outlook.com I now have to access http://uk.msn.com/ then branch to Outlook.com. My web mail works OK if I access it via Internet explorer (Version8) . If I use Firefox (Version 20.0.1) my message on the screen looks fine all correctly formatted. After I have sent it the result is like a 20 year old email system or the product of "Notepad". Nearly all the formatting has been stripped and the "carriage return & line feed" is all over the place.

When I use my usually redundant Internet Explorer 8, Outlook.com sends the Email message as would be expected.

I have been making a fool of myself by sending what looks like garbage. Unfortunately changing email addresses is not the simple solution, as 100s of people have my email address.

I really don't want to be a pawn in a fight for eyeballs between Mozilla and Microsoft.

Booksmarks in firefox on xp system vs windows 7 totally different?

I had been working on a XP windows system, using firefox and having no complaints until I was forced to change systems, and found myself with a windows 7 system (which I hate). I normally think of myself as pretty computer savvy, but this window 7 has me all turned around and confused, so pardon if the question is dumb.

I had , on my XP system in firefox, all my bookmarks, stored in handy folders that were always viewable at the top of the browser along with my menus. They were heavily used this way. I backed up my profile and book marks before the switch.

I went through the steps to copy my old bookmark file onto my new one. It looks like the history stuff came over, but I can't view the bookmarks. Is the functionality of the bookmarks different in xp vs windows 7? Do they work differently, How can I restore to see my various folders with bookmarks.

Thank you in advance.
