It has only been used for internet browsing and has been great......but now firefox version2 is out of date and sites such as facebook are not useable. It suggests i update to a newer version of firefox. I can find version 3.6 or 4 easily, download it but when I go to open it theres no run or prompts of how to install. I am not very computer literate to cant understand things that come of when I google for an answer!! Can anyone help me in easy to understand terms please??? thank you in advance

I have a Acer Aspire one with Linux from the beginning. I want to update Firefox because for example Youtube does not support it anylonger. I can download the files for updating, but then? What shall I do with the files?

I am Swedish so if anyone in Sweden can explain it is maybe better.

The Firefox 3.6 download is instead installing version 2.0.0.14

I am attempting to install the latest version of Firefox 3.6 from this site: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ using the Firefox 3.6 Free Download link; however, when the install finishes and Firefox launches, when I go to the Help>About menu to check the current version, the bottom of the window says I have installed "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.14; .NET CLR 3.0; ffco7) Gecko/20080404 Firefox/2.0.0.14". As you may have noted, that indicates the current version of Firefox is 2.0.0.14 and -not- 3.6.13 (or whatever the most recent version is). Is this just a bad registry entry or other taint from a previous install, or is the file that I am downloading and installing (named "Firefox Setup 3.6.13.exe") not the correct one? If the former, then what steps should I take to troubleshoot/remedy this? If the latter, then is there some way I can get the correct file to install 3.6.13 or the latest version?

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 had also recently had Google Chrome installed on my XPro 32-bit operating system via the backdoor when upgrading my Real Player. I thought it might be a conflict with Chrome & Firefox as Chrome wanted to be my default even though I tried very hard to remove that default. I removed Chrome but let it have a toolbar on my Internet Explorer ver 8.0.6001.18702. I still have the freeze although not as often. Do I have to wait for a Firefox update to fix this like my similar conflict with my AVG 2010 that took several updates on both sides to resolve?
