when I type in my password to access my email, the actual password displays. I cannot see where to change the setting to hide the password. When I log into my email from other computers, the password is shown as asterisks. Can you help, please? (because of the set-up of the ASUS, I can only access the internet via Firefox, therefore, I cannot try via eg. Internet Explorer.

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.

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I am getting messages of Firefox is out of date and its on v2 despite v3 being downloaded.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

I am trying to upgrade to the latest Firefox version using an Asus Eee PC 900 with the Linux operating system. When I choose to download the upgrade, it asks which file I either want to "open with" or "save to". This computer has little memory and no removable disk drive. However, I can use a flash drive to save the file to but which program/file should I select to open this file with?

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?

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?
