Just a little tired of Safari so opened Firefox which I haven't done for a LONG time! The latest upgrade says it is for Mac 10.5 and above. I am assuming I can't upgrade to the latest version but it would be good to upgrade to an earlier version. 3.6? How would I do this?

When I go on You tube (and other sites like ITV player for example), videos don't play properly and i am prompted to upgrade to a higher version of firefox. When i try to do this nothing changes and I still get the prompt. So I tried Google chromium and I get the message that I already have a newer version already. I'm using an Asus Eee PC netbook. Any ideas?

I bought an ASUS netbook 2 years ago.  I like the Linux and love using Firefox. However, many sites are now rejecting the 2.x. I can see on download sites how to get the tar file for the 3.x but have no idea how to load it safely. I worked with unix many years ago, so I know some basics. I bought a GNU book and it is no help. I need simple safe instructions to do an upgrade to firefox.

I have an Acer Aspire 1. It came with firefox 2 and although I have tried to update it will not the update option is greyed out. The software is linux. How do I sort this out and update firefox to any version going or can I delete and instal the latest version. Then when I download an upgrade, it will not upload to the correct place, where is the correct place so it works.

Where we bought the acer from say they no longer support the item despite the fact you buy a 3 year warranty!

I am getting messages of Firefox is out of date and its on v2 despite v3 being downloaded.

I have an Acer one notebook with OS Linux Linpus. Firefox is delivered in version 2.0.0.3. I can find a way to unpgrade to version 3.6, downloading does not work (won't install). Add-ons give problems etc., so I cannot browse properly. When using Firefox for the first time (after reinstallation of the OS) I get no connection to http://nl.www.mozilla.com/nl/firefox/2.0.0.14/firstrun/ So i'm stuck.
