I can only connect to the internet at 26.4. At least half of the times I try to connect to a site, FireFox comes back almost instantaneously and says it can not find the server. It simply will not wait long enough! It usually will eventually find the server if I ask it try again several times. Is there any setting I can change to force FireFox (3.01) to wait a little longer before it gives up? This is driving me crazy! It's hard enough having waiting for several minutes for sites to come up when I have found the server .

I downloaded the free Firefox 3.6exe (numbers 2, 3, and 4) and the message that my computer is unprotected and that I need to download the above continues to appear when I log on. Is there something else I need to do to get rid of the message and to ensure online protection?

I have used Foxfire for some time. Recently, the screen prompts me to download a newer version. When I try to do so, and move the icon to the Application file, it says an older version exists and do I want to replace.

How do I upgrade from Firefox 3.0.1 to 3.6 on a PC with Windows 2000 and Panda Internet Security?

Since version 3.0.1, no version of Firefox loads and allows access to the Firefox Start page. The start page will not load. If I disable Panda IS when I load a newer version than 3.0.1, the reaction is worse - but it still won't load. Re-loading version 3.0.1 gets me right back in business (it loads perfectly) but now I am unprotected running that version. I tried posting this question earlier, but it never showed in the posted queries list. When I did it today, it said the question had been asked before, but I had to sign in to this thing to go further (no response to the 'previously asked question' provided.) Now can I see the answer?

please advise.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: /questions/831432

I have a new Toshiba Satellite. My hand seems to rest on the touch pad when I do not intend it too. I was reading something on Blackboard, for a course and suddenly it began to get so small, I can no longer read it. It continues to be that size, even though I have logged off. When I restart, everything accept that sight is normal size.

MBP OSX 10.6.7 4GB/250GB 2.4MHz

"The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."

Error appears when trying to drag Firefox 4 to App folder

Oddly, on my Mac desktops, the install app says that "a newer version of what your trying to install is in your apps folder". No problems with installation and running FF 4.

On the MBP, it (correctly) says that an older version exists...but no installation and above error msg.

How can I cause the tabs and buttons to be where they were on the older versions? I've tried to get used to the "new" interface, but I spend so much time looking for things that I used to know exactly where they were. How can I get the old version back, or how can I cause this one to put things where they're supposed to be? The tabs should be along the bottom, right above the web page display. And what happened to the little down-arrow on the back button that would allow me to go back to a previous page? And why on earth did you put the "undo" button where it is?? Makes no sense to me. Gimme back the old interface. Or must I abandon Firefox? jan Smith
