I have a laptop that I upgraded: ubuntu8.10 -> ubuntu9.0.4 java stopped working in yahoo bridge. (firefox = 3.0.19) I followed Sun's instructions putting the link to the correct .so file to java6u20 plugin but that did not help. I tried clearing cache. still nothing. I have another PC with firefox3.0.19 and there is no java plugin but there are two flash plugins (1 free, the other non-free) it is at ubuntu8.10 and java is working just fine in that firefox. I have followed all of firefox's steps for enabling java in the preferences dropdown. I can provide more details if you need them.

When I try to download the new version of Firefox, I get a window saying save file or cancel. When I hit save file, nothing else happens. I went through google chrome and downloaded the new version, went into downloads and deleted the old versions but I am still getting a message on gmail that I have not updated to the new version and when I try to go to certain sites I am sent to your upgrade browser window.

I've upgraded to the latest Firefox, but something is preventing websites from reading that I have upgraded. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

At first I thought it was a specific website, but I have found that it's affecting my websites on an overall way. Again I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox. It also doesn't seem to affect any of my other internet browsers.

This wouldn't be an issue, but most websites are demanding I upgrade and even disabling me from using certain features until I do.

Firefox will not start after upgrade from 3.0.1

I have Firefox 3.0.1. I would like to upgrade to 3.6, but if I try to upgrade to any version, I cannot open Firefox. It is not like the other "Will not start" problems, because in the Task Manager, firefox.exe pops up, then goes away instantly. I have tried using Safe Mode, doing a clean install by uninstalling Firefox and my profile, cleaning the registry, then using CCleaner, then trying to reinstall, but the problem persists. Sometimes firefox.exe doesn't even show up in the Task Manager. I also cannot use any version of IE(even if I wanted to), Safari or Chrome. They all have the same results. I suspect that it is not a problem with Firefox, but with my computer, but I don't what is wrong. Can anyone help me?

I copied the json file containing my previous bookmarks, as I needed to reinstall on a new hard drive. My system is now reinstalled and I really need to be able to copy the json file over the one that exists now. How do I go about this?

I searched through Firefox help to get the location of the json file, to copy and save it. Do I dave to delete all the bookmarks in the current folder first?
